Money In The Bank – Wrestling Observer

The Maharaja retained his championship in much the same way he gained it and Carmella and Baron Corbin became the 2017 Money In The Bank Winners at last night’s pay-per-view. Carmella’s victory came in a controversial fashion as Carmella’s puppet/second James Ellsworth climbed the ladder for her and dropped the case down to her for the win. It sounds like Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan will have something to say about that this Tuesday. Corbin grabbed the men’s case by ending the spectacular AJ Styles-Nakamura confrontation, dumping both men off the ladder, and grabbing the briefcase. Special recognition to Sami Zayn who dealt out some hellacious moves to Ziggler and Kevin Owens during the match.

Mike & Maria Kanellis – YouTube

Another happening last night was the debut of Mike and Maria Kanellis, formerly Mike Bennett & Maria Kanellis of Impact Wrestling and Ring of Honor. The pair is being billed as a couple who is over the top in love, complete with 80’s power ballad theme music, focused on teaching SmackDown Live, “The Power of Love” through the heelish tactics the pair is known for I’m sure.
