The Money in the Bank Kickoff Show kicks off from the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. We go live into the arena, where the new host of the Kickoff Show, Renee Young, welcomes us to the show.

We go to the Social Media Lounge, where Phillips asks for the WWE Universe’s predictions for the pay-per-view tonight. We see the hype video for the main event tonight, which will see a new WWE World Heavyweight Champion crowned. Christian says the match is a tossup and he can’t make a prediction. Alex Riley picks Bray Wyatt, while Booker T picks Randy Orton.

We go backstage with Byron Saxton, who is with Roman Reigns. He asks Reigns how he plans to assess and attack his seven opponents tonight. Reigns says he has already assessed this situation, and all he has to do tonight as attack and then attack again. Reigns says he will leave as Champion and will be “the dog that runs the yard.”

We now see the ‘Money in the Bank By the Numbers’ video. Renee confirms that Bad News Barrett will not compete tonight, while Christian picks Dolph Ziggler, Alex Riley picks Kofi Kingston, and Booker T picks Seth Rollins. We take a look back to the Money in the Bank pay-per-view in 2013, where Randy Orton became Mr. Money in the Bank. The video then transitions into Orton’s cash-in on Daniel Bryan at SummerSlam 2013.

Bryan says he doesn’t know when he is going to be back. He says the strength hasn’t come back in his arm, and there is talk of another surgery. He says he will be back, and when he is, he will be better than ever. Cole asks Bryan how he feels about someone becoming the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion tonight. Bryan says he’d rather be walking out here to compete and defend the title, but he has been battling an uphill battle since he started wrestling. He says when he comes back, he is going to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship again. Cole asks Bryan who the biggest threat in the Ladder Match is. Bryan says John Cena, Randy Orton, and Roman Reigns. Cole asks Bryan how is honestly felt when he was stripped of the title without being told in person. Bryan says he felt disrespected, because none of them can beat him, so they have to strip him of the title. Bryan says one day, someone will wipe the smug look off of Stephanie McMahon’s face.

Bo Dallas’ music hits, and he makes his way to the ring. Dallas says he has been listening to everything Bryan has been saying, and says life isn’t about the destination, but it is about the journey. Dallas says Bryan can still climb the ladder of life and make his way back to the top, because all he has to do is Bo-Lieve. Bryan says he appreciates Bo’s concern, but says he is acting like a Bo-ner. Bryan tells Dallas to “Bo-Leave.” Bryan’s music hits and he leads the crowd in a “YES!” chant again as Dallas leaves the ring.

  1. RIP says:

    MITB match delivered a good swerve. And I liked the Usos and the Wyatts. I like where they are going with Dustin. The rest of these matches just haven’t delivered yet.

  2. Ian says:

    How did MitB deliver a swerve (because it was the obvious result)?

    But anyway, no Cameron turn on Naomi, no tag title change…where are the big moments.

  3. Latrese says:

    That was no swerve. A real swerve would have been for someone else to win the MITB briefcase and for Kane to turn on Rollins and the Authority or even better for Randy Orton to win the title and Rollins to cash it in and the Shield to reunite. Now THAT would be a swerve, but the way this PPV is looking if Orton wins the title it is gonna be a total crapfest and if anyone else wins it Rollins is just gonna run in and cash in the briefcase to continue bieng a corporate kiss as. In other words the PPV is a load of crap just like most of the WWE ppv’s have been over the last ten or fifteen years.

    A total swerve would be Rollins cashing it in on Orton, winning then turning on the Authority as well!!!

  5. Joe B says:

    Rollins won’t cash in and win. WWE will use that as a tool to build him. It will be some time before he cashes in.

  6. Joe B says:

    3 possible winners realistically. Cena, Orton, and Reigns. Reigns won’t because WWE will use MiTB to build up Rollins, so he won’t challenge right away. Orton would be useless unless Bryan is coming back soon. Cena as noted before, the supposed winner, only one that I can see winning. I would prefer Reigns or Cesaro but that won’t happen.

    HOOOOOOOOOOOORAY!!!!

  8. DontBALemon says:

    I would love to see Cesaro win then turn face and at SummerSlam defend against Brock Lesnar!!

  9. Ian says:

    WOW yet another underwhelming looking PPV.

    No surprises, nothing special.

  10. Latrese says:

    I am glad Cena won it. I would have loved to see Riegns get it, but if not him or Sheamus then Cena would be the next best choice. The rest of them are not ready yet. Cesaro is not ready yet. I seriously think they should detatch him from Heyman and take him face to see what happens and Bray Wyatt should just go away.
    I seriously think they are building up to reuniting the shield and shocking the shoes off the authority so don’t be shocked if that happens sooner rather than later. I think that is what is best for them. Riegns does well on his own but Rollins and Ambrose need each other. Anyway back to John Cena’s win, I expected it for two reasons: 1. They were in his hometown and 2: They owed him after screwing him the last time because Orton whined and threatened to quit if they didn’t make him champ. Congrats Cena!

  11. Kerry says:

    Cena wins…how predictable.

  12. RIP says:

    I looked at the match without my mind made up Rollins was going to win. And Ambrose was in it till the last minute. One of these days, creative is going to change it up on you and I’m going to laugh.

    If we didn’t have that Amazon cover exposed, it wouldn’t have ruined the ending. However, I’m going to armchair quarterback here a moment and say Trips and creative missed the best opportunity they’ve had all year to really throw a curve.

    Cena wins, crowd is booing. Orton, Kane, and Trips lose it because the plan is botched. Cena gets knocked comatose. Rollins cashes in and wins.

    “There’s always a plan B”

  13. deathedge says:

    Cena, though predictable, was the right guy… Assuming that the “Brock is winning the belt at SummerSlam” rumors are true. Orton would have to have another boring face run. Losing to Brock would risk taking the wind out of Roman and Cesaro’s sails, and possibly even Bray’s. Kane and ADR were never going to win.

  14. Jay says:

    The first ladder match was too good athletic wise that it made the 2nd ladder match weak. Only cool spot in the 2nd match was the RKO off the ladder.

  15. TheChampisHere says:

    15 time champion John Cena!!! Curious now to see what direction things go with his championship. I do agree Cesaro, Reigns and Wyatt are more suited for other titles. Perhaps with BNB sidelined when he returns one can take the title from him

  16. ironFNmaiden says:

    You guys don’t understand: this is Cena’s big chance….”his time is now….”.

  17. soccer20649 says:

    Joy another Cena championship reign… wake me when its over

  18. Taurus says:

    The only swerve at mitb was Orton being busted open and the wwe showing him bleeding on camera

  19. Ryan says:

    I usually never bash the WWE but Jesus this whole ppv was so predictable, who in their right minds didn’t see Rollins and Cena winning?! And why does Rollins even need the briefcase, can’t HHH just use his power and give Rollins a title shot whenever he wants, a real swerve would’ve been having Kofi finally win a big match and propel his career since he always steals the show in these ladder matches. I do kind of get Cena winning though so he can possibly drop the titles to Reigns (it would’ve been really cool to see Bray win too since he’s so over right now) somewhere down the line to make Reigns into that next huge megastar but why not have Reigns just win tonight? Remember when Sheamus won the WWE Title in like less than 4 months from Cena at the TLC ppv that one year, no one saw that coming. The only thing that has truly shocked me along with the rest of the world was Lesnar beating Undertaker at Wrestlemania this past year that had my jaw dropped, give us another one of those moments WWE I’m begging you.

  20. John says:

    @ryan to truly make Reigns a megastar he needs to pin a champion like Cena fair and square. Winning a ladder match could be considered fluky depending on how the finish is done. The way Seth Rollins won with Kane getting involved is an example of that. I don’t think they intend to put the belt on him he’s just a pawn. Sure Sheamus beat Cena at TLC but he’s currently stuck and will remain a mid card lifer until further notice. I don’t think that is the plan with Reigns.

  21. joe says:

    typical WWE garbage!

  22. jim says:

    Its like they are waiting for the right time for a payoff. Unfortunately now we have to expect the best shows being on intervals where subscriptions are about to runout. This network will tank so bad if people dont renew and wwe will have egg on the face baaad

  23. dave says:

    What’s predictable is the “predictable” comments from fans when Cena has held the title for a combined 5 months in three years and CM Punk and Bryan held it for the majority of that time. Being a good wrestler and in vogue with internet fans is great but so is hard work and consistency. Cena is probably the worst wrestler, mechanically, since Hulk Hogan but he delivers a high energy main event each time and works well with anyone. And I think the WWE has more problems than who their top champion is; like an undercard they can’t utilize properly because they’ve started to second guess the IWC, whether they’ll admit to it or not.

    It’s been said already but again, Cena looks like a transitional champion here. The PPV itself was very lacklustre. The main event was clunky and it was hard to tell who was legit hurt or not. The first MITB ladder match had some great moments but again, it fell short of previous MITB matches. I expect Reigns will be told when to cash in by HHH, which may lead to some interesting moments.

    The best match was easily the opening Tag title match. Rematch at Battleground please.

    And Stardust is officially a crowd killer, although he’s fine tuning the character currently and gets a little less creepier each week. Stardust reminds me a little bit of Seven (Dustin’s WCW abortion),

    That vignette is probably more apt for Stardust.

    Rollins*, not Reigns.
