** Michael Cole and Wade Barrett were on English commentary from the O2 Arena in London, England. Cole announced a sold-out crowd of 18,885.

** The event kicked off with the men’s Money in the Bank ladder match. LA Knight was the clear fan favorite but it was Damien Priest who emerged with the briefcase after an action-packed spectacle.

** Next up was the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship match between holders Shayna Baszler & Ronda Rousey, and Liv Morgan & Raquel Rodriguez. The titles changed hands after Baszler inexplicably turned on Rousey mid-match.

** A physical encounter between Intercontinental Champion Gunther and challenger Matt Riddle followed. Gunther worked on Riddle’s storyline injured ankle, eventually tapping his opponent out. After the match, Drew McIntyre made a surprise return, facing off with Gunther and seemingly setting up a feud for the IC Title.

** Cody Rhodes vs. Dominik Mysterio was up next. The crowd was firmly behind Rhodes, singing his name throughout. Despite interference from Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley, Rhodes was able to hit the Cross Rhodes for the win.

** John Cena then made a surprise appearance to put over the crowd and advocate for a WrestleMania in London. He was interrupted by Grayson Waller, to whom he eventually delivered the Attitude Adjustment. Albeit helped by Cena and a red-hot crowd, this was Waller’s best outing on the main roster by some distance.

** The women’s Money in the Bank ladder match was next. IYO SKY grabbed the briefcase after a clever finish involving handcuffing Becky Lynch and Bayley to each other at the base of the ladder.

** Seth Rollins then defended his World Heavyweight Championship against Finn Balor. Rollins sold his “bad ribs” throughout. As the pair battled, Damian Priest appeared with the briefcase with the crowd chanting “Cash it in.” Priest took a seat at ringside. Finn Balor had the upper hand but Rollins was able to hit the Stomp when Balor was distracted by Priest, who had stood up with the briefcase in hand as if to cash in. Rollins got the pin to retain and headed to the back, as the Judgment Day members argued.

** WWE Undisputed Tag Team Champions Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn were interviewed by Kayla Braxton. Sami said tonight was the night that Roman would get exactly what’s coming to him. Sami’s theme then played as the crowd sang along.

** In the main event, the fans played a big part in enhancing the tag team match between The Usos and Roman Reigns & Solo Sikoa. That crowd will have gone home happy as Reigns took the pin, his first since December 2019.
