Money In Back 2022 Update results, reviews and matches
This year Money in the bank finished. There were plenty of surprising moments, including the fact that Liv Morgan not only won the women’s MITB match, but also successfully cashed in later that night at the Ronda Rousey. That’s right, Liv is the new Smackdown Women’s Champion. Check out all the results for the PPV below, along with the program’s rating.
This year’s MITB PPV takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. Outside of the two ladder matches, there are plenty of championship matches, with the Undisputed Championship being significantly absent. Don’t worry, though, that will be covered at Summerslam at the end of the month.
Across MITB’s two games, there are four championship games on the card, with the most anticipated being Ronda Rousey defending her Women’s Smackdown Championship against Natalya. Also, Bobby Lashley and Theory stopped posing and started fighting for the US championship. The full list of MITB matches is listed below.

There are no matches in the Kickoff Show. However, we were able to watch all of the video packages that we would have watched the rest of the night.
Women’s money match in Bank match
Liv Morgan wins.
Mat: Greet. I’m lonely. Chris is sick. You know what else is sick? Becky Lynch’s Outfits. Are those glasses functional? Who still cares. During the match, I came to the conclusion that ladders are cursed. Amidst a few tough spots and risks, it’s clear that ladders are in place to get to these wrestlers. We’re at a point where we’ve seen a lot of what the opponent can do in these games, so it’s hard to find new things that really wow the audience. We had a few fun moments – such as Liv’s sunset power shot on Lacey from the ladder – and it was fun, but nothing really surprised me here. I loved seeing Asuka and Lynch come together, but the match felt a bit lacking. Anyway, Liv got a well-deserved victory. It’s time to see what she can do at the top of the women’s department. The icing on the cake for the match saw Lynch not suffer a last-minute slump after failing to win.
US Champion Theory vs Bobby Lashley
Lashley wins by submission.
Mat: I was bewildered when Bobby Lashley entered the door, he wasn’t holding a tiny golden statue of himself he was giving to a young fan in the crowd. You could call it “The Golden Bobby.” WWE, I have lots of other great ideas if you want. It’s great to see Lashley in a PPV match that doesn’t have to be against Omos, so Lashley can show that he’s a great power wrestler. He’s fun to watch, especially as a babyface. Lashley winning here is a smart move. I would love to see these two rematch at Summerslam. They have good ring chemistry.
7.5 / 10
Women’s raw champion Bianca Belair vs. Carmella
Belair wins by peg.
Whenever Corey Graves talks about Carmella, I laugh a lot. He talked about how he thought she was beautiful, and that was interesting to me. Did you know they are a couple? Of course you did. We all did. Carmella itself is a great heel. She’s particularly well-suited for a sneaky/smug personality, and while this matchup is a bit short, it’s still better than I thought it would be, mostly because Carmella really leans towards that personality. Belair has always been great, but I underestimated Carmella going into this match, and I’m dumbfounded for it. Carmella’s post-match attack makes it look like we’ll have a rematch at Summerslam, which will be interesting.
Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos vs. The Street Profit
Usos win by pinning.
Mat: This is my main event, the match I’m most looking forward to. These are two great card teams that will put on a show. All four made some great, memorable points, like Dawkins getting flustered when he stepped into a pole outside or Ford getting supercharged while exiting the top wire. Somehow, this exceeded the already very high expectations I had for this one. This is a showpiece for all four men, especially Ford. It tells a great story about title-hungry men joining one of WWE’s all-time great tag teams. It’s easily the match of the night so far and one of the best team fights of the year, even if it’s a bit awkward in the end.
9.5 / 10
SmackDown Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey vs Natalya
Rousey wins by submission.
Mat: Natalya did the biggest heel move on her way to the ring: she gave a young fan a pair of sunglasses. No matter how great this match is, it’s going to be rhythmic and it’s an uphill battle to keep the crowd – and those at home – engaged. What this duo delivers is a technical fight with back and forth kills and reversals. Rousey takes Natalya into the Sharpshooter and makes Shawn Michaels’ patented curl like icing on a cake. This battle was against each other. It went against the audience, and the duo ultimately won over the crowd. Rousey wins make sense here.
Liv Morgan and Ronda Rousey
Liv Morgan wins by peg.
Then Liv cashed out her MITB contract, and it felt a bit premature, and the match looked like it was going to end really quickly with Rousey getting acquitted. However, somehow Liv took the lead. It was a great moment for Liv and the fans. I do not rate this match because it is a very fast match.
Men’s money match in the bank
Mat: The match kicked off with Adam Pierce adding Theory, who had lost the US championship earlier in the evening. So right off the bat, there are a couple of interesting storylines: the boss looking for Theory, McIntyre on a quest to win back the title, and Sami Zayn wanting to “sit in” to a one-year contract. And everything in me wants Zayn to win.
This match is a roller coaster ride, but just downhill parts in the best possible way. That Super RKO on Rollins was a great moment, and everyone – except Theory – threw Omos over the announcer’s desk. Of course, Theory won, and that makes sense, given that he needs to make it to the next step in WWE – although I would have loved another Theory/Lashley matchup. Anyway, it was a great MITB match.
