On Friday’s SmackDown, WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and The Usos defeated Edge, Rey Mysterio, and Dominik Mysterio. The show also featured the return of live crowds, which led to Paul Heyman putting out a statement about Reigns.

“Last night was the first time @WWE #SmackDown was presented in front of LIVE audience since the start of the Era of the #TribalChief, and it all re-affirmed where #UniversalHeavyweightChampion @romanreigns stands right now, which is head and shoulders above anyone else,” Heyman wrote. “Above their connection to the crowd. Above anyone else’s ability to raise the temperature in the room that’s already boiling over.

“To be blunt, this is a most pivotal run in the chronicles of World Wrestling Entertainment. #RomanReigns has upped the levels of what an absolute top superstar in #WWE can deliver. And here’s the best part, we’re just getting started! Welcome back to the #WWEUniverse. With Respect, The Island of Relevancy Tourism Board, Witness History Unfold in Front of Your Very Eyes.”

In the comments, MVP took issue with Heyman saying Reigns is “above anyone else’s ability to raise the temperature in the room that’s already boiling over.” MVP noted that he knows someone who is capable of doing the same — WWE Champion Bobby Lashley.

“While I both understand and respect the praise you heap on your associate, I strongly disagree with your assessment,” MVP wrote. “Primarily the ‘anyone else’ part. I know a guy. An ‘All Mighty’ one…”

No word on if this will actually lead to anything on WWE TV, or if MVP was just having some fun on social media. Reigns is scheduled to defend his title tonight against Edge while Lashley is going up against Kofi Kingston.

Money in the Bank begins at 7 pm ET with the Kickoff and the main card at 8 pm ET.

411MANIA | John Cena References Money in the Bank on Instagram

411mania.com 18 July, 2021 - 08:58pm

– Many fans are likely anticipated John Cena returning to WWE. Cena himself has recently stated that his WWE return “is not a matter of if but when.” He’s likely sparking many smartphones today with his recent Instagram post, with an image showing his “account balance” is at 0, meaning that he has no “money in the bank.”

Also, it should be noted that John Cena does tend to post goofy and trolling type images without any context or reason on his Instagram account a lot. You can view his latest Instagram post below.

As previously reported, Cena is heavily rumored to have a Universal title matchup with Roman Reigns in the works for WWE SummerSlam 2021 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. WWE has not yet confirmed the matchup. Cena was also recently cast in the Matthew Vaughn spy-thriller Argylle, which is also slated to start filming in Europe next month. However, The Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer has reported that Cena’s movie commitment will not be a hurdle for his SummerSlam participation.

WWE Money in the Bank will air live tonight on Peacock. The Kickoff show begins at 7:00 pm ET. Meanwhile, the main card starts at 8:00 pm ET.

WWE Money in the Bank 2021 preview: Men’s ladder match

Cageside Seats 18 July, 2021 - 06:00pm

In theory, this match should be won by a superstar who could plausibly become WWE champion or Universal champion within the next year. That means John Morrison and Ricochet have the smallest probability of success in the ladder match. These two guys have spent the last year losing way more than winning, and they are nowhere close to sniffing main event level championship gold.

Kevin Owens and Shinsuke Nakamura are better positioned than those two guys, but they are still pretty big underdogs in this match. Owens already spent months failing to win the Universal title from Roman Reigns. It would make a great story for KO to steal the title from the Tribal Chief after all of those instances where Jey Uso saved Roman’s ass in their feud. But it was well established at the end of 2020 and beginning of 2021 that WWE is not putting that title on Owens. As for Nakamura, he’s doing quite well with his fancy new crown and king status, but I’m going to need to see some wins over wrestlers besides sad Baron Corbin before I buy that Shinsuke can be a top champion in the next year.

That leaves four major players in this match. First up is Seth Rollins. Seth has arguably the most famous Money in the Bank cash-in of all time, when he crashed the main event of WrestleMania 31 in 2015 to take the WWE championship away from Roman Reigns. And what do you know, Roman Reigns is right there waiting to be cashed on again in 2021.

Then there is Big E, who has multiple logical options for using the Money in the Bank contract. If Bobby Lashley really does destroy Kofi Kingston at this event, how sweet would it be for Big E to cash in on Bob right after that? Big E is also one of the few babyfaces on SmackDown that has not challenged Roman Reigns for the Universal title. If WWE plans to pursue that match at some point, the Money in the Bank contract could be right in the middle of that story. The main thing holding Big E back is that he’s never been pushed anywhere near the main event level before as a singles wrestler, so this would be a pretty big leap.

Finally, there’s Drew McIntyre. I like Drew, and I think he’d be one of the better choices to win this match. But I have my finger on the pulse of the community right here at Cageside Seats, and there are definite vibes of “anyone but Drew” circulating this match for a lot of wrestling fans. It’s understandable why so many fans are exhausted of Drew and his rambling promos, and just need a break from his never-ending presence in the WWE championship story going back to Royal Rumble 2020.

Drew McIntyre Recalls Kofi Kingston Knocking Him Out During MITB Match

Wrestling Inc. 17 July, 2021 - 04:30am

Just shy of one week before heading into the Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder match, former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre is laser-focused on winning the contractual briefcase and claiming his rightful title again, or another one, perhaps. “The Scottish Warrior” recently made an appearance on WWE’s The Bump to discuss his plan going into this career-altering match.

McIntyre would like to recreate that first moment of winning the WWE Championship by cementing a victory at Money in the Bank this Sunday. Having been in several of these unique matches, McIntyre is dead set on learning his mistake from year’s past and focusing on what he needs to do to not batter himself too much, yet get enough offense in to give himself time to climb the ladder to victory.

“I’ve been in a few MITB Ladder matches. They’re frickin painful,” McIntyre revealed. “I remember my very first one at WrestleMania 26. I was the Intercontinental Champion and in my first WrestleMania [match]. I remember there was a particular point in the match where Shelton Benjamin picked up a ladder and locked eyes with me, and I thought, he’s going to throw that ladder at me. And sure enough, he threw the ladder at me. I put up my forearms as fast as I could, and it hit my forearms. It was the most unbelievable pain in my life. My arms were black and blue for weeks.”

McIntyre noted that he was actually knocked out unconscious in his next Money In The Bank match.

“My next MITB match, Kofi [Kingston] jumped off the ladder doing his boom drop through a table and knocked me unconscious. I remember waking up and literally think why are there so many people in my bedroom. [Then, I was like] wait, I’m in a ladder match. I’ve got some good experiences in MITB [matches], and I have a good feeling about this one, considering that I absolutely have to win.”

WWE Money In The Bank takes place this Sunday. As always, Wrestling Inc. will have live coverage of the event.
