WWE Abandon Money In The Bank Stipulation

Triple H WWE Money In The Bank

One stipulation that came into force at Money In The Bank has been abandoned by WWE just two days after the show took place.

Ahead of their World Heavyweight Championship match at Money In The Bank, Damian Priest and Seth Rollins had a back-and-forth in the ring when they came to make a “gentleman’s agreement” for their title bout.

If Damian Priest won then Seth Rollins would not get another shot at the World Heavyweight Championship while Priest is the champion but if Rollins won the gold, Priest would have to leave The Judgment Day. Priest agreed to those terms by noting about The Judgment Day “They need me a lot more than I need them.”

At Money In The Bank, Drew McIntyre captured the briefcase ensuring a title shot increasing the pressure on the champion but regardless he reiterated to The Judgment Day he didn’t want any of them involved, something Finn Balor didn’t seem too happy with in the slightest.

Rollins and Priest were engaged in a back-and-forth contest before Rollins nailed his superplex into a Falcon Arrow that got a two count despite it looking suspiciously like Priest did not kick out. That brought out Drew McIntyre who immediately cashed in his Money In The Bank contract to turn the bout into a triple threat affair.

With no disqualifications in a triple threat match, CM Punk appeared and wore McIntyre out with a steel chair, costing him yet another chance to become World Heavyweight Champion as he nailed McIntyre with the title belt. Damian Priest nailed McIntyre with a South of Heaven chokeslam to pick up the win.

Not only did this screw McIntyre but given the stipulation of the match, also screwed Seth Rollins out of being able to challenge Damian Priest for the World Heavyweight Championship again – or so it seemed.

Damian Priest Rips Up WWE Stipulation

On Raw in Ottawa, Seth Rollins and Damian Priest met in a backstage encounter with Priest simply telling his former challenger that given how their match ended, he’s throwing out their agreement leaving Rollins to challenge for the gold again after Priest faces Gunther for the title at SummerSlam. Of course, if Gunther defeated Priest, then he’d be able to challenge for that gold anyway.

Damian Priest was in a good mood on the show as he teased The Judgment Day with a secret before Rhea Ripley made her return to WWE to confront Dominik Mysterio after he was getting a bit too close to Women’s World Champion Liv Morgan.
