Ross welcomes ProWrestling.net’s Jason Powell to the show.
Powell thought that Money in the Bank was a serviceable show, despite some negative reaction from fans. He says that the main event Money in the Bank ladder match delivered, and if that match didn’t deliver for some reason, his overall reaction to the show would probably be a lot different. Overall, he thought the show provided some intrigue and entertainment so he gives it a passing grade.
Ross says that he’d never be able to look in the mirror and say that this show sucked, as some fans have. Just the fact that there were two multi-person ladder matches on this show is something to give WWE credit for. Fans tend to take the complexity of these matches for granted, but Ross thought the talents on this show did a good job. It was a fine show in his opinion.
Powell liked that Nakamura’s entrance was interrupted by Corbin. This resulted in a big pop from the live audience when Nakamura eventually returned, and this also made his minutes in the match really matter. Ross agrees and thought it was a good creative decision. He also liked the showdown between Nakamura and A.J. Styles.
Ross has been a huge fan of Nakamura from his time in NJPW, and he doesn’t think we’ve seen the best of Nakamura just yet. Nakamura’s first bout with Sami Zayn in NXT was fantastic, but he hasn’t really topped it since to Ross’ knowledge. Ross suggests that the eventual bout between Nakamura and Styles might be the match where he really breaks out and shows what he can do in the ring.
