The 2019 edition of Money In The Bank is now in the history books, and considering some of the recent Raw and SmackDown Live shows served up, the WWE Universe were treated to a fine night of entertainment.

The main event has caused a bit of a storm with a lot of fans, but lets see what happened throughout the card.

KICK-OFF SHOW

The Usos defeat Daniel Bryan & Rowan

Even though they switched sides to Raw during the Superstar Shake-up, the Vince McMahon-inspired Wild Card Rule saw The Usos come back to SmackDown two weeks ago.

It was there they challenged Daniel Bryan and Rowan for the vacant SmackDown Tag Team Championships in a losing effort, but they got their revenge in the only match before the main show.

Surprisingly it was Bryan who took the pin, a double Samoan Splash from Jimmy and Jey putting the former world champion away.

MAIN SHOW

Bayley wins the Women's Money In The Bank match

The women opened the show and gave a really great account of themselves.

Naomi showed her pure athleticism on multiple occasions and it felt like literally all eight superstars could've come away with the win.

But just as it looked as though Mandy Rose would be the winner due to the help of Sonya Deville, Bayley recovered first to push them both off the ladder and unhook the briefcase.

Rey Mysterio defeats Samoa Joe - New United States Champion

Joe defeated Mysterio very quickly at WrestleMania 35 to retain his title, and we got a rematch after Rey's son Dominick got brought into proceedings.

In another relatively quick match between the two, Mysterio hit a West Coast Pop around three minutes into the match, pinning Joe shockingly, even though his left shoulder wasn't on the mat.

A new champion but Joe had the last laugh, bloodied but brutalising Mysterio infront of his son.

Shane McMahon defeats The Miz in a Steel Cage match

It seems like this feud may be finally over as Shane-O-Mac got his second straight win over the A-list Superstar.

It was a Miz brutalisation for the most part, and it looked as though he was going to suplex Shane off the top of the cage.

But the former SmackDown Live Commissioner escaped through his own t-shirt to the floor for the victory.

Tony Nese defeats Ariya Daivari - Retains Cruiserweight Championship

205 Live has lost some considerable stars in the last few months - Ali, Cedric Alexander and six-month champion Buddy Murphy.

It now seems like a bit of an afterthought but it was finally able to get on the main card of a pay-per-view as Nese defended his title for the first time.

He put away Daivari with the Running Nese after kicking out of his powerful Hammerlock Lariat finisher.

Becky Lynch defeats Lacey Evans - Retains Raw Women's Championship

Lynch would face newcomer Evans in her first of two matches of the evening, and she would retain in bizarre circumstances.

After a back-and-forth match, Evans had Lynch in a pinfall predicament in the middle of the ring, but the ref scurried around the ring and didn't count.

Lynch was down for at least a four count before reversing the roll-up into a Dis-Arm-Her for an immediate tap out and successful title defence.

Charlotte defeats Becky Lynch - Wins SmackDown Women's Championship

Becky knew her night wasn't over, but Charlotte's arrival straight after Lynch's victory signalled no breather whatsoever for the Lasskicker.

It was a great brawl but after Evans struck Lynch with the Women's Right behind the referee's back, it looked to be all over for Becky Two Belts.

Despite this, Lynch got an oh-so-near fall on Flair, before a Big Boot put the Irishwoman away and started Charlotte's ninth title reign.

It wouldn't last for long though.

Bayley defeats Charlotte Flair - Wins SmackDown Women's Championship

With Lynch being beat down by both Flair and Evans, Bayley made the save for her fallen friend, and when she got the better of Flair, she only had one idea in mind.

As she decided to cash her newly-won briefcase on the dazed new champion, Charlotte never returned to her feet as a top rope Elbow Drop saw Bayley capture the SmackDown Women's Championship for the very first time.

Roman Reigns defeats Elias

Nothing is ever straight forward when Elias is around, and he took matters into his own hands backstage pre-match by smashing a guitar over the back of Reigns.

An in-ring musical performance followed, but after he ran down the city of Hartford, his escape was met by a Superman Punch from Reigns.

One Spear later inside the ring and the match was done.

Seth Rollins defeats AJ Styles - Retains Universal Championship

These two went one-on-one for the first time since 2006, and they did not disappoint.

Lots of near falls and close calls had the crowd on the edge of their seats, and when Styles reversed a Stomp into a Styles Clash everyone thought that was it.

It wasn't though, and after a Ripcord Knee, a Superkick and a Stomp, Rollins walked away with his title still intact.

Kofi Kingston defeats Kevin Owens - Retains WWE Championship

Things got personal in this rivalry very quickly, but Kingston was able to overcome Owens to retain his title.

There was no dodgy finish, it was a Trouble In Paradise, clean as a whistle that put KO away, meaning a new challenger for the title is surely coming.

Some expected a return for Big E as he was reportedly backstage, but looks like we will have to wait a while longer.

Brock Lesnar wins the Men's Money In The Bank match

Minus Sami Zayn, who was found tied up upside down backstage earlier in the night, seven men worked an absolute clinic with some brutal spots to boot.

And then the swerve happened.

With Ali looking like he was going to shock everyone to claim the briefcase, the noise of Brock Lesnar's theme hit, as he stormed to the ring and removed the SmackDown star from the ladder in the ring.

With no-one to oppose him, Lesnar retrieved the briefcase to a very, very mixed reaction.

Welcome back, Brock.
