Last night WWE held its annual Money in the Bank PPV from multiple locations, in a mix of live and pre-taped segments. Overall, the show seemed to be a success for the WWE, with all things considered. Let’s take a look at some of the backstage news and notes from last nights epic Money in the Bank PPV.
The Braun Strowman vs. Bray Wyatt match was pre-taped because WWE didn’t want one of the puppeteers for Wyatt’s puppets to accidentally be seen on camera. Davis noted that at last word, the Strowman/Wyatt feud will be continuing.
Paul Davis of WrestlingNews.co explained the situation with using Vince McMahon’s office:
“I was told that a writer suggested having wrestlers fight in Vince’s office but Vince was not on board with having his office trashed because he doesn’t want anyone near the dinosaur bones on his wall.”
The PPV runtime was 2 hours and 23 minutes, making it one of the shortest WWE main roster PPV events since the In Your House era. It was reportedly Vince McMahon’s decision to keep the PPV short and the current belief is that upcoming shows will be shorter until fans are able to be in attendance again.
Looking at the main event, Otis won the briefcase and the ability to challenge any champion at any time over the next year.
In a recent interview with DigitalSpy.com, Otis commented what he was going to do if he won the match:
“If I get the briefcase, we’re challenging for the Tag Team titles. I don’t think there’s a rule of what titles to challenge for, so we’re going to challenge for the Tag Team titles, cash it in and that’s what’s going to happen… if I can get up that ladder.”
Keep in mind that the ladder match was filmed several weeks ago which means that Otis knew he won the match when he made his comments.
