This year’s Money in the Bank has come to an end. There were many surprising moments, including Liv Morgan, who not only won the women’s MITB match, but successfully cashed in at Ronda Rousey later in the evening. That’s right, Liv is the new SmackDown Women’s Champion. Check out all the results for the PPV below, along with a recap of the show.
This year’s MITB PPV was held in Las Vegas, Nevada at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Outside of the two ranked games, there were numerous championship games, with the undisputed championship being noticeably absent. But don’t worry, that will be defended at Summerslam at the end of the month.

In addition to the two MITB matches, four championship matches were on the card, with the most anticipated being Ronda Rousey’s defense of her Smackdown Women’s Championship against Natalya. Also, Bobby Lashley and Theory stopped posing and began battling for the US Championship. The full list of MITB matches is below.

When the kickoff show begins there will be a link to the video below.
There were no games during the kickoff show. However, we saw all the video packages that we will be watching the rest of the night.
Women’s Money in the Bank Match
Liv Morgan wins.
Mat: Hi. I’m alone. Chris is ill. Do you know what else is sick? Becky Lynch’s performance outfit. Do these glasses work? Who cares. Halfway through the game I’ve come to the conclusion that the ladders are cursed. Between a few rough spots and glitches, it’s obvious the leaders are out to get these wrestlers. We’ve gotten to a point where we’ve seen a lot of what opponents can do in these games, so it’s difficult to find new spots that really excite audiences. We had some cool moments – like Liv’s sunset flip powerbomb on Lacey off the ladder – and it was a fun fight, but nothing really impressed me here. I loved watching Asuka and Lynch do it, but the match felt a little lacking. Anyway, Liv got a well-deserved victory. Time to see what she can do in the upper league of the women’s division. The icing on the cake of the match was that Lynch ended up being thrown off balance after not winning.
United States Champion Theory vs. Bobby Lashley
Lashley wins by submission.
Mat: I think it’s crazy that Bobby Lashley doesn’t perform while holding a tiny golden statue of himself to give to a young fan in the crowd. You can call it “The Golden Bobby”. WWE, I have plenty of other great ideas if you want them. It’s great to see Lashley in a non vs Omos PPV match so Lashley can show he’s a great powerhouse wrestler. He’s a lot of fun to watch, especially as a babyface. Lashley’s win here was a smart move. I would love to see these two have a rematch at Summerslam. They have good chemistry in the ring.
Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair vs. Carmella
Belair wins via pin.
I laugh a lot every time Corey Graves talks about Carmella. He often talks about how beautiful he thinks she is and I enjoy it so much. Did you know they are a couple? Of course you did. We all did. Carmella herself is a fantastic heel. She fits the sneaky/cocky persona exceptionally well, and while this match was a little short, it was better than I thought it would be, largely because Carmella really leaned into that persona. Belair is always great, but I underestimated Carmella coming into this match and that’s why I’m a fool. Carmella’s post-match attack makes it look like we’re going to get a rematch at Summerslam, which will be a lot of fun.
Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos vs. The Street Profits
The Usos win by pin.
Mat: It’s my most important event, the match I’m most looking forward to. These are two fantastic tag teams who will put on a show. The four pulled off some great memorable spots like Dawkins being suplexed into the outside ring post or Ford getting a superkick coming off the top rope. Somehow this exceeds the already super high expectations I had for this one. This was a showcase for all four men, especially Ford. It tells a fantastic tale of these title-hungry men taking on one of WWE’s greatest tag teams of all time. It’s easily the match of the night so far and one of the best tag team matches of the year, even if it ended up being a bit awkward.
SmackDown Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey vs. Natalya
Rousey wins by submission.
Mat: Natalya pulled the biggest heel move on her way to the ring: she gave a pair of sunglasses to a young fan. No matter how great this match is, it’s followed by a bang and it’s an uphill battle to keep the crowd – and the people at home – happy. What this duo delivered was a technical battle of back and forth submissions and reversals. Rousey puts Natalya in the Sharpshooter and does Shawn Michaels’ patented flex for the icing on the cake. This fight was against each other. It was against the crowd, and the duo eventually won over the crowd. Winning Rousey made sense here.
Liv Morgan vs Ronda Rousey
Liv Morgan wins via pin.
Then Liv cashed in on her MITB contract and it felt a little early and the match seemed to end very quickly when Rousey got the assist. However, Liv somehow made it to the top. It’s a great moment for Liv and the fans. However, I am not rating this match as it was very fast.
Men’s Money in the Bank Match
Mat: The match begins with Adam Pierce adding Theory, who lost the US Championship earlier in the evening. So there are a couple of interesting storylines right off the bat: the boss looking for Theory, McIntyre on his quest for the title, and Sami Zayn wanting to ‘sit’ the contract for a year. And every fiber of my being wants Zayn to win.
This match was a rollercoaster ride, but only the descents in the best possible way. That Super RKO on Rollins was a big moment, as was everyone – except Theory – slamming Omos through the announcer’s table. Of course, Theory won, and that makes sense since he needed to be promoted to the next level in WWE – although I’d like another Theory/Lashley match. Anyway, that was a great MITB match.
