Both of WWE's World Championships were on the line at Money In The Bank as Kofi Kingston and Seth Rollins defended their gold.
WrestleMania is normally a healthy mix of feel-good moments and heels getting the better of babyfaces. However, this year, it felt like the balance was off, but in a good way. With Seth Rollins, Becky Lynch, and Kofi Kingston all vying for top championships, most fans came to terms with the fact that at least one of them would have to lose.
However, that didn't happen. The curtain came down on WrestleMania and all three Superstars won their matches and left the biggest show of the year as champions. Six weeks later, the trio faced their biggest challenges yet as champs at Money In The Bank. Lynch lost one of her titles, but managed to keep hold of the other.
Rollins and Kingston both had the luxury of going on before the men's MITB match. That meant no risk of a surprise cash-in. The Architect was up first as he defended the Universal Title in a dream match against AJ Styles. The match was every bit as physical and acrobatic as you would have wanted it to be. After the dust had settled, it was The Beastslayer who stood tall.
Next up, Kingston versus Kevin Owens. KO prides himself on being a Prizefighter so thrives in matches like these. Plus, the WWE Championship is the one big title he still hasn't managed to get his hands on. Sadly for Owens, his wait for the richest prize in the industry will continue. In what was another physical battle, Kingston eventually connected with Trouble In Paradise to win the match.
While we fully expected Rollins to retain his title, the Kingston win surprised us a little. It's almost as if we still feel like Kingston being WWE Champion is too good to be true, and we're sure we aren't the only ones who feel that way. That Vince McMahon gave us the reign to shut us up and he was going to take it away as soon as he possibly could. Thankfully, that has not happened, and Kingston's deserving WWE Title reign continues.
