Money in the Bank Opponents Do Battle

WWE Smackdown reactionDean Ambrose defeated Bad News Barrett

This was a physical and entertaining match from beginning to end. I really like the dynamics between Barrett and Ambrose. Barrett slugs away at Ambrose in the middle of the ring. We come back from a break and Ambrose clotheslines Barrett a few times. Ambrose hits an elbow and then a Tornado DDT attempt fails. Barrett tries a pumphandle slam, but Ambrose hits a massive clothesline again. He plants Barrett with his finisher and Dirty Deeds gives Ambrose the win. 

After the match is the real story. Swagger comes out and runs through Barrett. He tosses him into the barricade and Barrett is hurt. I really hope this injury is not serious because Barrett is on the top of his game. The guys cannot have any serious injuries derail him. If he does, he MUST stay on television. Similar to what Orton did when he was younger and giving injury updates, Barrett can do that as well and make it comical. Either way, let's hope this is not as serious as it looked. 

Rollins, Ambrose, Swagger and Barrett all got some offense in and it was a great build between four guys in the ladder match. The chemistry and the flow of each guy getting offense was really smooth and logical.

Score: 7/10

Paige defeated Cameron

It was a pretty mechanical and quick match. Cameron needs to go away. She is so far away from being a legit competitor in the ring. Naomi and Cameron will split up and it will only show you how different they are in their career. Paige is the champion, yet the build is between Naomi and Cameron? You wonder why people are not completely invested in her. 

Score: 3/10

Bray Wyatt vs. Sheamus 

Sheamus and Wyatt enter a slugfest in this match. Both men lock horns and try to overpower the other. After a commercial, Wyatt hits a snap suplex for a two count. Wyatt slows the pace with a headlock, while The Uso's and the rest of the Wyatt Family looks on. Sheamus hits his ten clubs to the chest and tosses Wyatt back in. He hits a few clothesline and then runs him into the corner. The end comes when Sheamus locks in a Texas Cloverleaf and all men get involved. Sheamus tries a Brogue Kick and Bray escapes. 

Sheamus is so underrated. He explodes into his offensive moves and follows through with all of them. This is something that not everyone can do. I really like this match and would not mind this feud to continue. The only problem is that Sheamus' character has not evolved in the past few years. Hopefully, Bray Wyatt can change that and give us a new Sheamus. 

Score: 6.5/10
