The Good

For Raw, the main event between Finn Balor and Braun Strowman was a great match. It was a great battle of little guy versus big guy and Balor really pushed Strowman to his limits. This match made sense as well because both competitors are in the Money in the Bank ladder match so why not have them face off.  Strowman ended up winning and he has the most momentum going into the PPV.

For Smackdown, their main event was really great too! The match was between Jeff Hardy and Daniel Bryan with the winner facing Samoa Joe next week for a chance to get into the Money in the Bank ladder match. Both competitors went back and forth and Daniel Bryan ended up winning after putting on the heel hook (hopefully that is not his new finishing maneuver because the Yes Lock is great). What also made this great is Bryan had no time to celebrate because Samoa Joe came in the ring right after the match to let him know that he still has to deal with him.

The Bad

For Raw, the Bobby Lashley sisters segment was awful. The 1st interview where he mentioned his sisters was awful and this segment just made this whole storyline pitiful. It is a shame that Bobby Lashley’s comeback is being wasted on this.

For Smackdown, there really wasn’t anything too bad that happened on the show. If I had to point out maybe one bad thing, it would be the length of the match between Billie Kay and Lana. Lana ended up beating Kay in about a minute because of outside distractions, but I do not have a problem with Lana winning to help keep the idea of Rusev and Lana both winning the Money in the Bank ladder matches still in tact!

The Final Verdict

Overall, Smackdown had a great show this week while Raw had an average show this week. Smackdown focused heavily on Money in the Bank as well as next week’s show. The WWE championship match between AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura finally got a stipulation; we filled out a few more slots for the Money in the Bank ladder match, and the main event on their show was great! Raw, on the other hand, had a great main event, but also had some moments that felt like filler on their show. With that said, Smackdown had the better show this week. In conclusion, WWE is ramping up the intensity towards Money in the Bank and it will be interesting to see how they finish filling out the match card.
