Money in the Bank marks the first pro-wrestling event at the T-Mobile Arena Venue which gates open on April 6, 2016. All previous wrestling shows, before that, was hosted in Thomas & Mack Center located on the campus of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in Paradise, Nevada.

Alberto Del Rio competed in his last WWE Pay Per View match when he fought in the Money in the Bank Ladder match. He was released from the company on September 9th 2016.

Out of three attempts, this was the first time that Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins managed to have their scheduled match against each other on pay per view. They were meant to face each other at Night Of Champions 2014 but Reigns became injured, and they were meant to face each other at Survivor Series 2015 for the WWE Championship but Rollins became injured.

Dana Brooke competed in her first WWE Pay Per View match when she fought with Charlotte against Becky Lynch and Natalya in a tag team match.

First PPV match for Seth Rollins since returning from an injury suffered back in November of 2015.

What Happen in Las Vegas doesn't always stay in Vegas! It shows here on WWE 2016's 'Money in the Bank'; which was a critical success in the eyes of both the majority of fans and critics. However, for me, the PPV was a mixed bag. Most of the undercard matches were pretty mediocre. Its show in how forgettable, the preshow matches, were. Without spoiling the card, first off, I got to say, the tag match between the 'Lucha Dragons' (Kalisto and Sin Cara) VS the 'Dudley Boyz' (Bubba Ray Dudley and D-Von Dudley) had no build at all, nor was it was marketed for the show. The reason for this match, really came out of nowhere. It's sad to see, Kalisto go from being the mysterious 7th man on the Money in the Ladder Match to being reduce to a match on the preshow that nobody will remember. At least, the other tag team match on the preshow, try to add something to keep the audience, interested, with 'the Golden Truth' (Goldust and R-Truth) trying to commit murder, when they raise the heat of 'Breezango' (Tyler Breeze and Fandango)'s tanning bed, during a recent visit at the spa; causing the team of Breeze and Fandango to fight R-Truth and Goldust, under extreme sunburns. While, it made the match, somewhat funny to watch; the WWE really fail to establish the joke's set up. It was just delivered on the fly. Anyways, this brings us, to the true-opener of the show, the fatal four-way tag team match for the WWE Tag Team Championship, between the champions, 'The New Day' (Big E and Kofi Kingston with Xavier Woods) VS 'The Club' (Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows), VS 'The Vaudevillains' (Aiden English & Simon Gotch) VS Enzo & Cass. It was very entertaining match, however, it did get kinda confusing, on who is the legal man in the match, toward the end. I think, the ending to it, somewhat shows that. The second match on the card was a single match between Baron Corbin and Dolph Ziggler. First off, it was very surprising, to see this match on the PPV, since the last two encounters were on the preshow, but it's also great to see Baron Corbin get some exposer, after being greatly underused, since his big win at 2016's 'Wrestlemania 32'. I'm also, just glad, this low blow feud between them is now over. It was a total waste of time. This match didn't make Baron, look good, nor his opponent, HBK rip-off, Dolph Ziggler. It was really below average and boring. The Women Tag Match continue, this thread of mediocrity, as Charlotte and Dana Brooke Vs Natalya and Becky Lynch was very underwhelming. Like, the Ziggler/Corbin feud, the feud between Charlotte Vs Natalya has really gone, way too long, with a lot of bad recycle booking decisions like the Flair dress up and 'Montreal Screwjob' style finish from their previous encounters. I just glad, this feud is now over. Also, btw, Dana Brooke is still, pretty green in the ring and Charlotte is still, one of the worst 'bump' sellers. I think, this match would had been better, if it was one on one, (Charlotte Vs Natalya) for the title. Apollo Crews VS Sheamus was next. Nothing much to say, about this match. It was short and sweet. The next fight, AJ Styles Vs John Cena was one of the highlights of the night. However, you can really tell, that Cena had some ring rust, as he was slow in certain spots of the match, plus you can clearly hear him, calling the match spots. Still, without a doubt, it was a good match, worth watching. The Money in the Bank Ladder Match for a WWE World Heavyweight Championship match contract was next. In my opinion, while all the opponents: Dean Ambrose, Alberto Del Rio, Cesaro, Chris Jericho, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn did well to make it, somewhat memorable. Yet, I felt that, it didn't live up to previous 'Money in the Bank' Ladder matches nor the past multi-men ladder match at 2016's 'Wrestlemania 32'. Not a lot of high spots or amazing bumps, like I thought, they were doing to be. Still, I did believe, they went with the best choice of winner for this match. Anyways, this brings us to the next match on the card, which was a singles match for the WWE United States Championship, between the champion Rusev Vs the challenger, Titus O'Neil. While, I'm not a huge fan of Titus O'Neil's work; I did like this match. Mostly, because of the aftermath of the match, in which Rusev mock Titus's family at ringside. The main event had champion, Roman Reigns defend his WWE World Heavyweight Championship, against the challenger, Seth Rollins, who was previously forced to vacate the championship, due to injury, back in November 4, 2015. It was very well grounded match, with a lot of near-falls, and hard pounding action. Still, Seth Rollins did had some ring rust to dealt with. He got better, when the match went on. I know, a lot of critics wondered if WWE was "leaving money on the table" by not slotting Rollins as a face and Reigns as a heel, coming into the match, but this match show that, there was indeed, a double-turn, coming. The ending of the match was also, very clean, which surprise, a lot of viewers. Anyways, this ending, lead some to speculations, that WWE knew that Reigns has violated WWE's Wellness Program, days before, they publicly suspended him, two days after this PPV. Who knows!? All, I know, is that, they went with the right person to win. The crowd love it. Overall: While, this show had a majority of senseless boring matches. The main event of the show, really did made the crowd go home, happy. So in the end, WWE made good on their promise to make the show, stand out. It left fans buzzing for more.


Spoiler ahead,

So this Money In The Bank PPV was regarded as the biggest MIB ppv ever, The show had some good matches and majority of senseless boring match, so im gonna review on the three matches i care about,

1) Aj Styles Vs John Cena: This match is according to WWE a dream match between two of the greatest sports entertainer ever (though styles like to to call himself a professional wrestler). A back and forth match with majority of the match dominated by AJ Styles but due to some reason John Cena goes back to his old habit of not giving clean victories so interference by "Bullet Club" and styles beats Cena. I would give this match 3.5/5 because this could've been a lot better, I guess WWE is saving the better match for Summerslam/

2) Money in the bank ladder match: This match had everything you could ask for, Back and forth performance by all the wrestlers but it really came down to two guys, two guys who were predicted to win it, Kevin Owens and Dean Ambrose. At last WWE went with Rollins since the ovation "SHIELD" reunion got at the last Monday night Raw. I will rate this bout a solid 4/5 since it could've been better if there was more carnage.

3) WWE Champion Roman Reigns Vs Seth Freaking Rollins: They guy who claims to be the rightful champ vs the man who never lost it, this match had a perfect back story and built. The bout started extremely sow with Roman dominating Rollins, but then Seth turned the tables and gave some big power moves to Roman. Back and Forth they go with Rollins finally getting the better of roman with a "Flying Pedigree" (not kidding) and then another one to seal the deal. So here is your winner and the new WWE Worldheavyweight Champion "Seth Freaking Rollins"i will rate this match 4.5/5 with lots of Props to Reigns.

And that wraps up the Money In The Bank PPV 2016, thankyou for watching....... Oh Oh OH wait. Dean Ambrose is here. He blasted Rollins with the MITB contract briefcase he won earlier the same day. And ambrose cashed in, Dirty deeds... Its all over. Dean Ambrose has won the WWE Worldheavyweight championship for the first time in his career. And this wraps up the show with some great moments and it being the night where "Every member of the Shield was a champion"


"The best Money in the Bank Pay-Per-View of all time" is reiterated again and again until it becomes nauseous. And for the majority of the show this assertion is as flimsy as a Spanish announce table. Don't get me wrong, what's presented is good (Styles/Cena and the money in the bank match were great), but it never reaches the breathtaking stratosphere that's promised and promised and promised.

But then...the finale. A culmination involving rare nuance, mesmerisation and catharsis. The empire has been toppled and the redesigned conqueror reigns (pun intended) supreme. But then, manifesting like a ghost of the new champ's past (a rare brilliant call from Michael Cole), the mercurial madman - who has always been screwed by luck or unjust interference - finally exacts sweet revenge and acquires the holy grail.

Ambrose is finally champion, and the relief/elation when the referee's hand slammed the mat for three struck me like a super- kick. Finally, WWE made our fantasies and desires tangible. It's a strange feeling this - one of excitement concerning the direction of the WWE title - and WWE for that matter. Every time I hearken back to Ambrose kneeling over the belt and jumping across the announce tables celebrating, I feel more and more buzzed about future programming - which is something I haven't felt for what feels like aeons.

Ambrose is brilliant and one of my favourites - his promos and character-work is out of this world and while his style has been neutered somewhat by an unrelenting schedule and poor writing, his presence in-ring is astounding. He deserves the top spot and has for a very long time.

So, while this may not technically be the best "Money in the Bank" pay-per-view (tag match was entertaining but sloppy, women's tag was a snooze save for Becky and Corbin/Ziggler + Crews/Sheamus were well worked but forgettable), it may be the most momentous (rivalling 2011's iteration with how drastically it changes the game). After a grind of terrible creative decisions and ignoring fans, WWE has finally shown they are able to push aside ego and deliver what we have been clamouring for.

Or, you know, they had to get the title off Reigns because of his suspension...

But I'll keep dreaming it's the former...


WWE does all they can to sell themselves and their superstars. But the average WWE fan is smart enough to see that Roman Reigns doesn't deserve his push and that Titus O'Neal needs to be used better. WWE hyped this as the best Money in the Bank ppv ever at WrestleMania proportions. You can throw in all the dream matches you want, but they need to actually deliver. Luckily, this event went above and beyond.

The first pre-show match had the Golden Truth defeat Breezango. 5/10

The Lucha Dragons won against the Dudleyz in a match that was a bit better than your average match on RAW. 7.5/10

The first official match was a fatal-four-way tag team match for the titles. They high-power tag-team matches happen a lot, varying at how good they are. I really wanted Enzo & Cass to win, but the New Day retained. I hate the New Day and will be so angry if they break Paul London & Brian Kendrick's record! Luckily, the match was amazing as heck! 9.5/10

WWE really wants to push former NXT guy Baron Corbin. He's winning the feud against Dolph Ziggler and won the match against him tonight. I don't get why, Corbin isn't anything special. Ziegler is awesome and he carried the bout in what was surprisingly great. 8/10

The woman's tag team match wasn't anything special either, except Natalya's heel turn afterwards. But still worth a watch. 7/10

Young upstart and former NXTer Apollo Crews won against Sheamus. Their feud hasn't been taking off and I can see why. If there wasn't so many rest holds, I would give this a higher grade. I PVRed this, so fast-forwarding through the rest holds made it better. 7/10

Next we had the dream match that fans have been waiting for for years: AJ Styles vs John Cena. Cena was dominating WWE while Styles was dominating TNA, ROH, and NJPW. His debut in WWE had fans speculating this match. This was a dream match that was better than both of Cena's matches with The Rock. AJ won. Wow! 10/10

Next up, we had one of the best MITB ladder match ever. Everything was set up and fell into place perfectly. One word for this bout: perfect. Ambrose won. Will he cash in? 10/10

The only reasons I could think of for putting Rusev and Titus O'Neal near the end was to either give fans a chance to breathe or to make the main event seem better if it sucked. Whatever, I was still mesmerized by the previous too match enough to enjoy this. 7/10

Any feud with the Shield members is guaranteed to be a classic and live up to the hype. We had both members with the long hair go at it for the WWE Title. Seth Rollins never lost it to Roman Reigns. I'm glad Seth cleanly won. But wait! Out comes Dean and cashes in his briefcase! Rollins held the title for less than a minute. Now all three Shield members have been World Champions. The only thing next for WWE is to book a triple threat match with the three guys for the title. Roman vs Seth: 10/10 Seth vs Dean: 10/10

The great matches made up for the non-great ones.


1st Match: The New Day vs The Club vs Enzo & Cass vs The Vaudevillains, Four Corners Tag match for the WWE World Tag Team Championships. Kind of a slow start. There's not as much action as you'd expect, and there's not a lot of suspense until the end of the match. Again surprised The New Day won, I feel like they're backing themselves into a corner and running out of opponents for them. Hopefully they lose the belts soon, because their title defenses are losing their edge for me. Rating: 3/5

2nd Match: Baron Corbin vs Dolph Ziggler. Please tell me this is their last match, because they're trying way too hard to squeeze blood from this stone. Ziggler's OK, kinda odd how he gets booed now, and Corbin has some potential as a heel powerhouse, he just needs a better opponent in the future. Put him against Cesaro or another powerhouse to showcase his abilities, cuz Ziggler is pretty much a punching bag. Rating: 2.5/5

3rd Match: Charlotte and Dana Brooke vs Becky Lynch and Natalya. Well, this match exists. There's no purpose to it and it plays out like pretty much every Charlotte match at this point. The most surprising thing is Natalya turning heel afterwards. When is Sasha Banks gonna come back and take the belt from Charlotte? It needs to happen soon. Rating: 2/5

4th Match: Apollo Crews vs Sheamus. Best match so far, Crews shows some great promise and pretty much anytime Sheamus loses is funny. As long as Crews keeps his head on straight, he'll have a great future in WWE. Rating: 3.5/5

5th Match: AJ Styles vs John Cena. Well this had "Dream Match" written all over it. You have "The Face of WWE" vs "The Shawn Michaels of TNA", how could this be bad? Not bad, slow. Maybe it's because this is Cena's first match in 5 months, but it's still pretty lackluster. I guess it's to show that Styles can out-wrestle Cena, but it goes on too long. There are some close pin falls and the crowd's into it, but that's kind of it. Also, why did Gallows and Anderson have to help Styles win? Kind of makes that contract signing pointless don't it? Maybe because they booked themselves into a corner, but still, kind of a downer. Rating: 3.5/5

6th Match: Dean Ambrose vs Chris Jericho vs Kevin Owens vs Alberto Del Rio vs Sami Zayn vs Cesaro, Money in the Bank Ladder match. Easily the match of the night. There's some unique spots and everyone shines, kinda wished this had started the show though. It would've started it on a higher note. Rating: 4.5/5

7th Match: Titus O'Neil vs Rusev, WWE US Championship. A cool down match, at least it's good to see them using Titus, unfortunately the match plays out exactly as you think it would. But hey, as long as Rusev doesn't run into John Cena, I can handle him as champ. Rating: 3/5

8th Match: Seth Rollins vs Roman Reigns, WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Another slow Reigns match, I get the feeling it's because this is Rollins' first match back, but again I would've liked it to be faster. The match heats up towards the end, and Rollins winning is probably the biggest surprise of the night, until... Rating: 3/5

9th Match: Dean Ambrose vs Seth Rollins, WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Until Ambrose cashes in and beats Rollins in 9 seconds. Freaking hysterical! The best moment of the night! Rating: 5/5

Final Rating: 5 out of 10. I know, Ambrose winning the belt is awesome, but the rest of the show is mediocre for me. I'm guessing they thought the second half of the show would make up for the slow first half, but I don't rate PPVs by just the good matches. So despite the ending, this is probably the worst PPV of the year so far. Much like Summerslam last year, the hype pretty much killed this show.
