Drew McIntyre & Viking Raiders vs Jinder Mahal, Veer & Shanky Another beautiful useless match in pairs/teams with McIntyre and Mahal still against each other. In the end, quite predictable like the sales in January, the good team wins thanks to the Scotsman following a Falcon Arrow and then his Claymore.
Backstage we see Big E with his New Day friends talking about the collection of the briefcase and Ettore Il Grande as a champion. Then we also see Reginald being chased by R-Truth and other superstars for the 24/7 title as always.
In short, nothing new. Eventually, the rest of the New Day came out from backstage and the trio hugged in the middle of the ring, making it an emotional moment, just like they did when Kofi Kingston won the Championship. ‘The Powerhouse of Positivity’ became the second person in WWE history to announce when he’ll cash in the Money in the Bank briefcase after announcing the date and time to his opponent.
Before Big E, hardcore legend Rob Van Dam aka RVD grabbed the title after announcing when he’d cash in. ‘The Almighty’ Bobby Lashley won the WWE Championship from Miz earlier this year and has elevated the status of himself as a performer and the Championship as well.
Drew McIntyre suffered a wardrobe malfunction
Former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre suffered a wardrobe malfunction at a live event in Washington, DC. The Scottish Warrior was set to battle 'The Maharaja' Jinder Mahal in a Street Fight at the show.
Prior to the match, McIntyre had some trouble with his ring gear after making his entrance. Speaking to Kenny McIntosh of Inside the Ropes, McIntyre revealed that he, too, wants to use it as his theme again, but fans will have to learn the lyrics and sing along like they do with Chris Jericho’s 'Judas' in All Elie Wrestling.
“The thing I always say is, everybody please learn the words because if I somehow convince management ‘we gotta use this because the fans love it, they’re all waiting for it, they’ve been asking me for it for years, they know all the words,’ and I walk out there and nobody knows the words and they don’t sing it like Jericho’s song, I’ll be devastated, and I’m going to have to go back with my tail between my legs going ‘I was wrong,’” said Drew McIntyre.
Siding with MVP, the duo produced some great matchups and promos which were missing from the Raw brand. However, even after beating Randy Orton in dominant fashion, Lashley couldn’t walk home as the champion.
