WWE Money in the Bank 2017 Results; The Heels Rule

Money in the Bank 2017 was a polarizing show that had controversial results and weird booking decisions. It goes without saying that this PPV is not as positively received as other PPV events that the Smackdown Live brand has staged in recent memory.

Story continues below....

It appears WWE is favoring the heels now more than ever before because the main events all had winners that were bad guys. The main event saw Baron Corbin become the 2017 Money in the Bank winner. The match itself was excellent with a lot of high spots. It went for nearly 30 minutes and was by far the best match of the entire night. I don't mind Corbin winning because he has the potential to be a great star in the future.

In the semi main event, Jinder Mahal retained his WWE Championship against Randy Orton. This match was okay, but it felt like a repeat from Backlash just one month ago. The Singh Brothers interfered again to let Mahal get the win. Mahal winning is a positive, although John Cena lurks in the background and could ruin his title reign very soon...

The finish that caused a lot of controversy was the Women's Money in the Bank match. The action in this match was pretty cool, although the way it was booked at the end annoyed many people. Carmella won at the end, although she didn't grab the briefcase for herself. It was James Elsworth who climbed the ladder to grab the briefcase for her. Many people hated the fact that a man had to get involved in the first ever Women's Money in the Bank match.

Another controversial finish was the WWE Tag Team title match. The Usos counted themselves out so The New Day won the match. However, title belts cannot be changed during a count-out so The Usos keep their championship titles. It's a bit of a cop-out since this match followed straight after the women's match.

The other title match was for the Smackdown Women's title. Naomi successfully retained her title against Lana in a short match. Lana still needs more training because she was a bit sloppy in this match. Carmella teased to cash in the briefcase, but she decided otherwise.

The rest of the card involved two meaningless tag-team matches. The Hype Bros (Zack Ryder and Mojo Rawley) easily defeated The Colons (Primo Colon and Epico Colon) while Breezango (Tyler Breeze and Fandango) beat The Ascension (Konnor and Viktor) in a match that last under four minutes long.

Overall, Money in the Bank 2017 could have been much better if the booking was better. The controversial finishes ruined some matches and WWE needs to invest more time in building up future babyfaces. It seems as if the company is pushing future heels more than the good guys lately. Well at least we can potentially look forward to AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura in the near future...
