WWE’s Money In The Bank pay-per-view ended in very controversial fashion. Brock Lesnar made his way to the ring and captured the Money In The Bank briefcase. This is something that not many people knew was going to happen, but even more wish WWE would have gone in a different direction.
The MITB contract is best-served as a device to help elevate a Superstar. Brock Lesnar might not need that much elevation despite Paul Heyman complaining that he is underappreciated. Therefore, it’s no surprise that some WWE Superstars weren’t happy about Vince McMahon’s booking decision yet again.
While discussing the Money In The Bank match at Starrcast, Sean Waltman spoke about why WWE Superstars would be upset by the MITB booking. X-Pac made some very good points in the process.
“I would not blame anyone in that match for being pissed off. That they had no idea [regarding the finish] if that’s true. You put this match together and you’re out there risking your neck, you’re doing all this sh*t, you got this finish you think is [gonna happen].”
“Trust me, when you’re a wrestler and you do this, when you’re a pro wrestler and you’re in a match, this is like your canvas that you are painting your masterpiece on. You’re trying for a masterpiece every time you go out there. You’re trying for a Mona Lisa… and you’re just about finished and all of a sudden you have no idea and this guy comes out and just paints a mustache on the Mona Lisa,” said Waltman.
Brock Lesnar could very well cash in his Money In The Bank briefcase at WWE Super ShowDown on June 7th. This event will take place in Saudi Arabia and it’s no secret that he’s won the Universal Title in KSA before.
We will have to wait and see how WWE plans on carrying on with this current storyline, but it seems like the company wasted the men’s Money In The Bank briefcase in a lot of fans’ eyes and some Superstars might agree and for good reason.
