WWE Money In The Bank 2022 Results

Everything that happened at WWE Money In The Bank 2022

In a night that usually promises to cement rising stars, WWE held the 2022 Money In The Bank pay-per-view at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Saturday, July 2.

Check out everything that happened below: 

Liv Morgan def. Becky Lynch, Asuka, Shotzi, Alexa Bliss, Raquel Rodriguez, & Lacey Evans - Women's Money In The Bank Ladder Match

After a year in which her popularity had become undeniable, Liv Morgan won the 2022 Women’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match in the opening contest, overcoming Becky Lynch, Asuka, Shotzi, Alexa Bliss, Raquel Rodriguez, and Lacey Evans. 

The match featured plenty of exciting spots, including a Double Suplex from Raquel Rodriguez to Becky Lynch and Liv Morgan, a Sunset Flip Powerbomb from the ladder by Liv Morgan to Lacey Evans, a rough Senton on a ladder from Shotzi, and a Leg Drop from Becky Lynch from one ladder to Asuka on another. 

Becky Lynch looked set to win the briefcase soon after that Leg Drop as she wiped out most of the field. She hadn’t dispatched of Liv Morgan, though, and Liv survived a push by using the top rope to propel the ladder back to a standing position before she decked Lynch with a punch. 

This left Morgan’s path clear and she scaled the ladder and grabbed the briefcase to win the 2022 Women’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match. 

Bobby Lashley def. Theory (c) - United States Championship

In the second match at Money In The Bank, Bobby Lashley challenged Theory for the United States Championship. 

Surprisingly, both competitors fought back and forth during the match, with Theory enjoying a long spell of domination at one point.

The United States Champion and his challenger exchanged counters down the stretch and Theory twice failed to connect with the ATL before Lashley applied the Hurt Lock. Theory tried to hang on but he soon tapped out, making Lashley a three-time United States Champion.

Bianca Belair (c) def. Carmella – Raw Women’s Championship

Bianca Belair was originally supposed to defend the Raw Women’s Championship against Rhea Ripley on July 2 but that match was scrapped due to an injury to The Nightmare. Carmella was ultimately the new number one contender as WWE revisited a title programme that was prevalent in the summer of 2021. 

Carmella dominated much of the action but she soon made Bianca Belair angry after she slapped the Raw Women’s Champion. This caused Belair to fire back with a forearm before she followed up with a KOD for the win. Belair then tried to celebrate but Carmella suddenly attacked the champion from behind. 

This programme will continue.

The Usos (c) def. The Street Profits – Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships

In the match of the night, The Usos looked to remain Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions as they defended their titles against The Street Profits. 

The Usos dominated much of the match, wearing down Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins, even cutting down a hot tag with a Superkick to Ford. The Street Profits eventually managed to fight back, though, after Dawkins hit a Senton to the floor. 

The match became more of an even contest from there and the challengers picked up two close near falls, first with a German Suplex from Montez Ford before a Blockbuster. 

The Street Profits then definitely thought they had the titles won after Ford hit a Diving Senton over the turnbuckle to the floor and then a Frog Splash back inside the squared circle to Jey Uso. Jimmy Uso managed to break up the pin at the last possible millisecond, though. 

A standing ovation then filled the arena as both teams stood face-to-face before the in-ring action started again and The Usos soon decked Ford with Double Superkicks before a 1D for the win. The match shouldn’t have been over, though, as Montez Ford clearly had his shoulder up before the three-count. The referee just didn’t see it. 

Following the match, a short spooky vignette filled with references to Eddie Guerrero, Kurt Angle, The Hardy Boyz, and The Dudleys aired while a figure moved in the shadows. It initially appeared the vignette was hinting at a shock return for Bray Wyatt but many speculated it could simply be a new gimmick for Edge. 

Ronda Rousey (c) def. Natalya – SmackDown Women’s Championship

Ronda Rousey and Natalya faced off for the SmackDown Women’s Championship in the semi-main event. 

The match featured a rough moment while Natalya had the Sharpshooter locked in on the apron as Rousey countered and sent the challenger’s head crashing into the ring post. This left Rousey with an injured knee and both competitors exchanged submission counters before The Baddest Woman On The Planet locked in an Armbar for the win. 

Rousey couldn’t celebrate, though, as Liv Morgan – smelling blood – suddenly charged to the ring and cashed in the Money In The Bank briefcase she had won only hours earlier.

The cash-in initially looked set to be disastrous as Ronda Rousey caught Morgan in an Ankle Lock. Liv managed to kick out at Rousey’s injured knee, though, and she rolled up Ronda for the 1-2-3 to become the new SmackDown Women’s Champion.

Rousey then handed the belt to Morgan after the match and hugged the woman who had just beaten her before she left the ring so Liv could celebrate. 

Theory def. Seth Rollins, Drew McIntyre, Sheamus, Madcap Moss, Omos, Riddle, & Sami Zayn - Men's Money In The Bank Ladder Match

In the main event, eight of WWE’s top stars battled it out for the Men’s Money In The Bank briefcase. Before the match could get underway, Adam Pearce announced the eighth entrant in the Money In The Bank Ladder Match was Theory. 

One story throughout the match was how to deal with Omos and everyone soon worked together to take out The Nigerian Giant, burying him under a pile of ladders. Even when Omos recovered, everyone just banded together again, decking him with a Brogue Kick, Helluva Kick, and a Stomp before the other seven competitors put him through the announce table with a super Razor’s Edge. 

After that, Drew McIntyre looked set to win the match but Butch suddenly charged to the ring and locked in a Sleeper, sending McIntyre falling from the ladder. The Scottish Warrior would exact some revenge with a Claymore shortly after and he and Sheamus tried to grab the briefcase, only for them both to be sent tumbling into another ladder by Sami Zayn. 

Zayn, Madcap Moss, and Seth Rollins then enjoyed time at the top of a ladder but they could not capture the briefcase, with Riddle hitting Rollins with an Avalanche RKO to put him out of commission. 

Riddle then seemingly had the match won but Theory suddenly appeared from out of nowhere and smashed The Original Bro’s head off the steel, sending him falling to the mat below.

This left Theory all alone and Vince McMahon’s protégé grabbed the briefcase to become Mr. Money In The Bank.
