This year’s Money in the Bank is over. There were plenty of surprising moments, including Liv Morgan not only winning the MITB women’s match, but managing to cash in later that night at Ronda Rousey. That’s right, Liv is the new Smackdown Women’s Champion. Check out all the results from the PPV below, along with a review of the show.
This year’s MITB PPV took place in Las Vegas, Nevada at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Outside of the two ladder games, there were plenty of league games, with the undisputed championship conspicuously absent. Don’t worry though, it will be defended at Summerslam at the end of the month.
In addition to the two MITB matches, there were four championship matches on the card, with the most anticipated being Ronda Rousey defending her Smackdown Women’s Championship against Natalya. Also, Bobby Lashley and Theory stopped posing and started fighting for the United States Championship. The full list of MITB matches is listed below.

When the Kickoff Show begins, there will be a link to the video below.
There were no matches during the Kickoff Show. However, we got to see all of the video packages that we’ll see the rest of the night.
Women’s Money in the Bank match
Liv Morgan wins.
Carpet: Hi. I am alone. Chris is sick. You know what else is sick? Becky Lynch’s entrance outfit. Are these glasses functional? Who even cares. Halfway through the game, I came to the conclusion that the ladders are cursed. Between a few tough times and mishaps, it’s obvious the ladders are there to catch these wrestlers. We’re at a point where we’ve seen a lot of what opponents can do in these matches, so it’s hard to find new spots that will really wow the crowd. We had a few cool moments – like Liv’s sunset powerbomb on Lacey from the ladder – and it was a fun fight, but nothing really wowed me here. I loved seeing Asuka and Lynch go there, but I kinda missed the match. Either way, Liv got a well deserved win. It’s time to see what she can do in the top echelon of the women’s division. The icing on the cake for the match was seeing Lynch off balance at the end after not winning.
United States Champion vs. Bobby Lashley Theory
Lashley wins by submission.
Carpet: It’s crazy to me that when Bobby Lashley walks in, he doesn’t hold a little golden statue of himself which he gives to a young fan in the crowd. You can call him “The Golden Bobby”. WWE, I have plenty of other great ideas if you want them. It’s great to see Lashley in a PPV match that isn’t against Omos, so Lashley can show he’s a big, powerful wrestler. He’s a lot of fun to watch, especially as a babyface. Lashley winning here was a smart move. I would love to see these two get a rematch at Summerslam. They have good chemistry in the ring.
Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair vs. Carmella
Belair wins by pin.
Every time Corey Graves talks about Carmella, I laugh a lot. He talks a lot about how good he looks, and that’s so much fun to me. Did you know they are a couple? Of course you did. We have all done it. Carmella herself is a fantastic heel. She fits the sneaky/arrogant character exceptionally well, and while this match was a bit short, it was better than I thought, mostly because Carmella really leaned into that character. Belair is still great, but I underestimated Carmella’s entry in this match, and I’m stupid because of it. Carmella’s post-game attack makes it look like we’ll 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.
Carpet: It’s my main event, the match that excites me the most. These are two fantastic tag teams that are going to put on a show. The four set up some great memorable spots, like Dawkins being suplexed in the outside ringpost or Ford getting a super kick coming off the top rope. In a way, it exceeds the already very high expectations I had for this one. It was a showcase for all four men, especially Ford. It tells a fantastic story of these title-hungry men taking on one of the greatest WWE 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, although there was a tiny bit of awkwardness for the finish.
SmackDown Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey vs. Natalya
Rousey wins by submission.
Matt: Natalya pulled off the biggest heel move on her way to the ring: she gifted sunglasses to a young fan. No matter how awesome this match is, it follows a banger, and it’s an uphill battle to keep the crowd – and the folks back home – engaged. What this duo fought was a technical battle with submissions and back-and-forth reversals. Rousey puts Natalya in the Sharpshooter and does Shawn Michaels’ patented flex as icing on the cake. This battle was against each other. It was against the public and the duo finally won over the crowd. Rousey’s win made sense here.
Liv Morgan vs. Ronda Rousey
Liv Morgan wins by pin.
Then Liv cashed in her MITB contract, and it was a little too soon, and the match seemed to end very quickly with Rousey getting the submission. However, Liv somehow stood out. It’s a big moment for Liv and for the fans. I don’t rate this game because it was very fast.
Men’s Money in the Bank match
The theory wins.
Mat: The match is on with Adam Pierce adding Theory, who lost the United States Championship earlier in the evening. So right off the bat there are some interesting storylines: the boss looking for Theory, McIntyre on his quest to regain the title, and Sami Zayn wanting to “sit” on the contract for a year. And every fiber of my being wants Zayn to win.
This match was a rollercoaster ride, but just downhill in the best possible way. That Super RKO on Rollins was a massive moment, as everyone – except Theory – slammed Omos through the announcer’s table. Of course, Theory got the win, and it makes sense, with him having to move on to the next step in WWE – although I’d love another Theory/Lashley matchup. Anyway, it was a great MITB match.
