The 2019 edition WWE Money in the Bank was telecasted on May 19, 2019. It was the tenth year of the Money in the Bank event. Money in the Bank is produced by the WWE network as a unifying event for its franchises: Raw, SmackDown and 205 live brands. Money in the Bank 2019 took place at the XL Center in Hartford, Connecticut. It was a professional wrestling pay-per-view event.
Let us have a look at the 5 Best Moments of WWE Money in the Bank 2019.
#. Seth Rollins defends his title from AJ Styles
It had been 13 years since Seth Rollins was defeated by AJ Styles in a high school gymnasium and no wonder Seth was waiting to cross paths once again with ‘The Phenomenal One’. As mentioned in the Raw results, Seth was already soaring high in the skies of victory after winning the 2019 Royal Rumble and conquering the ‘Beast Incarnate’, Brock Lesnar at the WrestleMania. At Money in the Bank 2019, AJ Styles literally rued the day he humiliated an unproven Seth in high school, back in 2006.
The best moment of the encounter between the two Superstars was when Rollins tried to Curb Stomp AJ for the first time. Rollins had Styles all set up for the Curb Stomp, but before he could have delivered the move, Styles caught him in mid-air and turned it into a Styles Clash. Rollins survived a count-out the match went on. Rollins finally won with a successful Curb Stomp following a superkick to an already kneeling Styles.
#. Roman Reigns defeated Elias in 9 seconds
Elias tried to pull a number on Reigns by attacking him with his guitar backstage. But as we have seen with Reigns he stormed into the ring while Elias was in the middle of his entrance routine, we heard the Bell and then we saw one of the deadliest Superman Punch from Roman, to knock Elias out and win the match in just nine seconds. We all expected Roman to win. But no one would have expected it to be so overwhelmingly emphatic.
#. Lacey Evans hijacks Becky Lynch’s second title defense of the night
Becky Lynch successfully defeated Lacey Evans to retain her Championship at her first title defense match of the night. In her second title defense of the night, Becky was turning speculations about her losing one of her two belts, into ashes. It was when Flair to tumbled to the outside of the ring after her failed attempt to use her Natural Selection facebuster on Lynch, and the referee was almost counting Flair out administering a 10-count, did Lacey Evans show up to hijack the match. She attacked Becky with a punch. Becky survived both the punch as well as Charlotte’s attempt to capitalize on the situation but eventually lost to a face kick from Charlotte later into the match.
#. Shane-O-Mac defeats the Miz
No one would have even dreamt of this outcome. The Miz for sure had a certain hatred towards Shane-O-Mac and everyone expected this time to be the time when he finally lets his rage out. It was when The Miz attempted to superplex an escaping McMahon off the cage, McMahon slipped out of his shirt and fell to the floor on the outside for the victory. The Miz was left on baffled on the top of the cage. It was very anti-climatic and bittersweet if I were to say.
#. Rey Mysterio wins the United States Championship
Before the encounter, everyone had mixed emotions. Our hearts might have been beaten for the Ultimate Underdog and to call out the truth, Rey even had momentum on his side. But Samoa was just one successful attempt away to Coquina Clutch Rey into submission. And at this point, we were all favoring the belt over the momentum. But the Ultimate Underdog pulled off another beauty as he reversed a powerbomb attempt with a huracanrana followed by a pin. It was just too much for Joe, who was already bleeding from a Mysterio senton that landed on his face, and he finally gave up handing over the United States Championship to Rey.
