Last night marked WWE’s ninth annual Money in the Bank pay-per-view…an event usually filled with chaos, mayhem, and broken bodies lying around everywhere. This year’s installment was no different, especially in the actual Money in the Bank ladder matches themselves, but one man might’ve been saved from having his body destroyed thanks to our good pal Hannibal Buress.
Hannibal said (screamed) to Finn Bálor what all wrestling fans have screamed at our televisions at some point over the years, when our favorite superstar was lying on top of the ever so dreaded announcer’s table, and it even seemed to make Finn corpse a bit a let some laughter out as he was supposed to be selling. It paid off later in the match as well, when he landed this RIDICULOUS Coup de Grâce that would’ve for sure buckled both of my knees inversely, shredding my ACL, MCL, and meniscus to bits.
And that wasn’t the only crazy spot of the match. Braun Strowman threw Kevin Owens off a skyscraper-sized ladder:
Immediately afterwards, ran THROUGH a ladder:
Samoa Joe, with absolutely no regard for his own life, elbowed Braun right in the side of his giant fuckin’ head mid-suicide dive:
And bodies were flying through the air constantly:
When it was all said and done, Braun Strowman wound up pulling the briefcase down making the him victorious “Monster in the Bank”, and on the Women’s side of things, Alexa Bliss won that briefcase and successfully cashed it in just an hour or so later!
They tore the house down in their Money in the Bank match as well…
God damn I love ladder match havoc. Throwback to the Hardy Boyz vs the Dudley Boyz vs Edge and Christian to hit your nostalgia chord on this Monday afternoon.
