The Main Event: A Flat Finish

Dave Simon opened the discussion with a strong critique of the main event’s conclusion. The six-man tag match ended in what he described as a flat and uneventful finish. Solo Sikoa pinned Cody Rhodes after a series of predictable ref bumps and low blows, leading to an anticlimactic end. The hosts were confused over WWE’s decision to end the show this way, especially after Triple H promised a landscape-changing event.

“What the hell was that? Did they forget how to finish pay-per-views?” Dave exclaimed, capturing the frustration many fans felt​​.

Predictable Outcomes

One of the night’s recurring themes was predictability. Dave, Johnny, and Ben agreed that many outcomes were too easily foreseen, detracting from the event’s excitement. For example, Drew McIntyre’s briefcase cash-in, which CM Punk thwarted, was called out by the hosts beforehand. The lack of surprises left the hosts and fans yearning for more creativity in WWE’s storytelling.

“I’m not that happy about it because I don’t want it to be this predictable and bland and boring,” Dave noted, reflecting the sentiment of many viewers​​.

“Money in the Bank used to be fun. Not tonight,” Harold commented, capturing the dissatisfaction felt by many long-time fans​​.

Standout Matches and Performances

While the main event and some matches fell short, others delivered. The men’s Money in the Bank ladder match was unanimously praised as the night’s match. High spots and risky moves kept the audience engaged and provided the kind of action fans expect from a Money in the Bank event.

“Men’s money in the bank for sure. That was the match of the night,” Johnny North declared, highlighting the standout performances from wrestlers like Andrade and Chad Gable​​.

Technical Issues and Botches

Technical difficulties and in-ring botches were significant parts of the night’s narrative. The event seemed plagued by mishaps, from the pre-show audio issues to Zoe Starks’ awkward landings. The most glaring was during the Seth Rollins vs. Damian Priest match, when Priest failed to kick out, leading to an awkward pause and confusion.

“Seth was looking at the ref like, ‘What the hell?'” Dave recounted, summarizing the chaotic moment that left fans and commentators alike baffled​​.

Looking Ahead to SummerSlam

As the post-show wrapped up, the hosts shifted their focus to the future, specifically WWE SummerSlam 2024. With setups like Solo Sikoa vs. Cody Rhodes and potential triple-threat matches involving Seth Rollins, Drew McIntyre, and CM Punk, there’s hope that WWE can deliver a more satisfying event.

“Join us immediately after SummerSlam for our post-show on August 3rd,” Dave encouraged, inviting fans to tune in for what promises to be a more thrilling discussion​​.

Scores and Audience Comments

To wrap up their review, Dave, Johnny, and Ben gave their scores for the event. Here’s how they rated it out of ten:

  • Dave Simon: “I’m giving it a seven. It wasn’t great. It wasn’t horrific. I liked it better than Forbidden Door, but that’s not saying much. The past couple of big wrestling shows I’ve watched have not been good”​​.
  • Johnny North: “I think I’d give it a seven overall. Like, I thought they were both enjoyable for their reasons. Neither were perfect shows, but both had highlights”​​.
  • Ben Simon: “Yeah, seven here. I didn’t care much for the end or the finish. Boring, but the ladder matches, even in the women’s one, a lot of car crashes, but they were going for it”​​.

Audience members also shared their scores:

  • Michael: “Ten”​​.
  • Harold: “Six”​​.
  • Ryan Katz: “Eight”​​.
  • Franco 316: “Seven”
