WWE Money In The Bank 2020 Report Card: Grades Are In!

Please note, the MITB Ladder Matches were scored separately. And do not forget, let us know how you scored the card.

R-Truth vs. Bobbly Lashley

Money Bank Report Card

Originally, the match was supposed to be R-Truth vs. MVP. Before we got the bell to ring, Bobby Lashley took the place of MVP.

It seems like WWE is moving forward with the idea of a stable featuring MVP as the leader. Adding Lashley is a good addition, as he is the power and also needs something to do.

Hearing MVP cut a promo before the match showed he still has skills on the mic. R-Truth was his typical entertaining-self.

There is not much to takeaway here. Basically, we got a two minute filler to help establish a new stable. Grade: C-

Women’s Money In The Bank Match: Asuka vs. Shayna Baszler vs. Nia Jax vs. Dana Brooke vs. Lacey Evans vs. Carmella

Compared to the men’s MITB Match, the women were not given much attention. Not sure why WWE went in that direction.

I liked Dana Brooke getting the wrong briefcase and then Stephanie McMahon appears to clarify the situation. The food fight with Paul Heyman was something and Nia Jax might have won.

The end, atop the roof, did not work for me. Asuka was a great selection, but everting again felt rushed. Grade: C+

Men’s Money In The Bank Match: Daniel Bryan vs. Aleister Black vs. Rey Mysterio vs. King Corbin vs. Otis vs. AJ Styles

Some funny moments here, starting with AJ Styles getting stuck under the weights. Then, he found an office at WWE Headquarters with coffins.

Brother Love made an appearance from the bathroom and People Power retuned. Also, Vince McMahon got disrupted; but, at least he used hand sanitizer.

On top of the ladder, Styles and King Corbin battled over the briefcase. Elias makes a return and Otis wins.

Yes, Otis has won MITB. Either he is the worst choice or Vince McMahon has high hopes. Grade: B-

SmackDown Tag Team Championship: New Day vs. Forgotten Sons vs. The Miz & John Morrison vs. Lucha House Party

Money Bank Report Card

WWE looked to have longterm plans for New Day, The Usos and The Miz & John Morrison. Then, one of The Usos suffered a serious injury and he will be out for six to nine months.

Therefore, WWE needed to change their plans. With one team out of the equation, they just added two new ones.

The Forgotten Sons were given the main roster spot due to The Usos injury. So, there was no real storyline there.

Lucha House Party are always tossed in when WWE needs to fill space. The perk, is Lucha House Party keep matches entertaining with their high-flying wrestling style. Grade: B-

SmackDown Women’s Championship: Bayley vs. Tamina

Money Bank Report Card

Honestly, Tamina working as a face is still tough to follow. As for Bayley, she has really embraced the role of villain.

With Sasha Banks on the outside, you knew she would get involved. I thought Banks and Bayley worked well together, even if it was just banter.

Bayley has been champion for most of the past 12 months and nothing has changed. Of all the people to cost Bayley the belt, it will be her best friend Banks.

Tamina has been with WWE for 10 years and finally she is starting to make leeway. Maybe, after so long with WWE, she can get a taste of gold. Grade: B

Jeff Hardy vs. Cesaro

Money Bank Report Card

We have not seen a competitive Jeff Hardy inside a WWE ring for over a year. Considering what happened on SmackDown, I figured Sheamus would be placed in the match.

To my surprise, Sheamus was not booked. Actually, he did not even appear after the match.

Cesaro is always reliable and the right choice for someone who has been gone for so long. Overall, a good performance by both and I would not be surprised if they meet again this month.

Hardy gets the win and moves one step closer to the top of the roster. After the Sheamus feud, Hardy could be back in the title picture. Grade: B

Universal Championship: Braun Strowman vs. Bray Wyatt

We need to note, this was Bray Wyatt taking on Braun Strowman. If it was The Fiend, the match would have gone a completely different direction.

Having the puppets appear at ringside was clever. If there can not be any fans, use the empty space to your advantage.

Six months ago, Wyatt looked unstoppable. Since losing the Universal Championship, Wyatt has struggled.

Strowman is no longer under the spell of Wyatt. He is his own man and that involves carrying gold.

With Wyatt not leaving as champion, that could mean someone else is coming. The Fiend vs. Strowman could be in the works for the next pay per view. Grade: B

WWE Championship: Drew McIntyre vs. Seth Rollins

Money Bank Report Card

Drew McIntyre and Seth Rollins can make anybody look. They seem to honestly care for the business and went out there like there were 80,000 fans.

Hard-hitting affair with both getting in some big offense. Impressive with McIntyre catching Rollins midair and following with an overhead belly-to-belly suplex onto the announce table.

Rollins hit his typical spots, that are always great to see.

I thought it was interesting no Murphy. But, Rollins accepting McIntyre’s hand out of respect was a major storyline twist. Grade: A-
