WWE Money In The Bank is in the books for this year. One match was booked at the last minute and then changed, but the company had their reasons.
R-Truth was booked in a match against MVP. This was a strange decision for a lot of fans because MVP was just transitioned into a manager role.
The match was about to start, and then Bobby Lashley came down. He gave MVP the night off and then Lashley squashed R-Truth very quickly.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that this match was there in order to get Bobby Lashley over and “create some comedy.” R-Truth coming down and doing his “What’s Up?” routine in an empty WWE Performance Center was pretty comical.
Bobby Lashley getting this win in such a way should indicate that WWE is still pushing him as a menacing force as well.
