The Money in the Bank ladder match was a failure, here's why

Published 3 Comments

It is often the episode of RAW after a Pay-Per-View that gives the events of the PPV their true meaning and gives the WWE Universe a bit more of a clue about where the feuds are going.

Now that the episode of RAW following the Money in the Bank PPV on Sunday is in the books, it has simply amplified the fact that the Money in the Bank ladder match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship was a monumental failure.

Firstly, many people are unhappy about John Cena emerging victorious, I am one of them but not because I find Cena annoying/ boring/ any of the usual stuff the anti-Cena fans claim him to be.

The reason I'm unhappy with Cena becoming a 15-time champion is because it seems like the WWE have taken yet another backwards step.

They took a backwards step in January when they handed the Royal Rumble to Batista.

They took a backward step pretty much every night on RAW between WrestleMania and Payback when it was two months of either the Shield being beat up by Evolution or Cena being laid out by the Wyatt family.

Now they've taken their next big backward step by giving the title to Cena who offers nothing new to the championship picture.

Cena winning wasn't the worst part about it, the worst part was that of eight men entered the Money in the Bank ladder match, three bore with them everything we have seen before while five offered new and rarely seen angles for a champion.

None of those five (Cesaro, Roman Reigns, Alberto Del Rio, Bray Wyatt or Sheamus) came out victorious and quite honestly, any of them would have been a nicer sight than Cena - even Del Rio!

So why has RAW made the match at Money in the Bank seem even more redundant?

Well the announcement that four members of the match will square off at Battleground for the championship in a fatal four-way match for a start.

Cena, Kane, Randy Orton and Roman Reigns are the chosen four which is great cause at least one of the five is being given a chance to progress.

Sheamus teamed with the Usos to take on the Wyatt family, Cesaro has fallen into the fold for the Intercontinental title and even worse, Del Rio wasn't even on RAW.

Four of the eight men who battled for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship have now seemingly returned to mediocrity.

Two men returned to the WWE on RAW, The Miz and Chris Jericho both came back, it could be seen as another backwards step for the roster.

Jericho appears to have already found an enemy in Bray Wyatt in a no doubt future showdown for Battleground while other up and coming superstars are being overlooked - I refer to Del Rio, Dolph Ziggler etc.

I really hope I'm wrong, I hope it turns round and some new faces do come into the championship picture but for now, the outlook looks bleak.
