WWE NEW Title REVEALED! Original WWE Money In The Bank Winner SCRAPPED?! | WrestleTalk News May 2019

A new WWE title has been revealed!
The OmniShane’s power increases!
And Brock Lesnar actually shows up for work!
And what were the original scrapped plans
for Money in the Bank?

– as I review the 20th May 2019 edition of
Monday Night Raw!
After closing the previous night’s Money
in the Bank pay-per-view heelishly laughing
at us all for thinking we were rid of him,
Brock Lesnar opened this episode of Raw by
heelishly listening to his briefcase like
it’s a boombox.
Or, for younger viewers, a very large AirPod.
All those questions you had about logic and
who’s really behind letting Lesnar win a
match he wasn’t even in were very helpfully
not addressed at all, with Paul Heyman dismissing
it as conspiracy theories.
Which is almost as unsatisfying as a series
finale to Game of Thrones.
It also leaves the identity of Sami Zayn’s
attacker rather appropriately hanging in the
If Brock didn’t take him out, then who did?
The likely truth is that WWE don’t care
about their angles making sense, and much
of this will never be addressed again, but
it’s a real ineffective use of all the heat
Brock gained by winning the beefcase.
Both Seth Rollins and Kofi Kingston came out
to challenge Lesnar tonight to cash-in on
them, but neither brought up how Brock just
turned up to take the reward for everyone’s
hard work yet again – which to me was the
major heel trait of the angle.
Despite there being no authority figures these
days, Triple H booked Seth and Kofi in a tag
match against Bobby Lashley and…
Baron Corbin for the night’s main event.
Even post-Money in the Bank Raw can’t escape
the pull of Baron Corbin’s midcard vortex!
Also slowly being sucked into the Midcard
of Evil, Sami Zayn asked Lashley backstage
for help against Braun Strowman in their match
next – meaning WWE appear to have forgotten
about their Worst feud of the year contender
in 2018.
I wish I could.
Strowman chased Sami around the building and
then pinned him in the ring, which was all
really a backdrop to building Lashley and
Braun in Saudi Arabia.
SmackDown’s Lars Sullivan was about to speak
for the first time in an ‘exclusive interview’
with Charly Caruso, but the Lucha House Party
came out to get beaten up instead.
Cesaro and Ricochet had a fantastic match
that got the crowd chanting ‘this is awesome’.
I just wish I saw it, because over half of
it came in a commercial break and a shrink
screen promo for The Secret Life of Pets 2.
AJ Styles then slapped Baron Corbin in the
face backstage.
I’ve replayed this segment nine times already.
Roman Reigns continued to be overexposed on
WWE TV by coming out next as Raw’s permanent
Wild Card.
But no matter which brand he’s on, nobody
can escape the OmniShane.
They set up their match together at Super
Arabia, which for some reason brought out
Drew McIntyre.
Because HEELS!
The Usos and The Revival were allowed to have
an actual match next rather than a segment
based on goofy toilet humour.
And shock horror, they had a great TV match
with several amazing near-falls and a ‘This
is Awesome’ chant.
Tag division reminder, though: the champions
are still Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins.
Even when the Firefly Funhouse isn’t a full
segment, it’s still one of the best things
in WWE.
This week, Raw only played an extended opening
credits sequence for the show, which started
off happy, but distorted into shots of crying
children and Bray Wyatt’s scary monster
It was great.
WWE then managed to put on a half-decent Moment
of Bliss segment.
Nikki Cross being fudged into Alexa’s minion
bestie aside – which is still a horribly awkward
character turn – this was actually not painful
to watch for a change, which neatly transitioned
into a six woman between Becky, Alexa and
Nikki beating the IIconcis and Lacey Evans.
Alexa didn’t once get in the ring, though,
just awesomely sipping her coffee on the outside
– implying she still isn’t cleared to wrestle.
And then we got the night’s best segment,
and possibly everyone’s new favourite division
for the months ahead – Mick Foley unveiling
the new 24/7 Championship.
Initially this was met with an audible groan
from the New York crowd, as on first impression
it just sounds like a watered-down PG version
of the Hardcore belt.
But then Foley revealed it wasn’t just Raw
and SmackDown wrestlers who could compete,
it also extends to 205 Live, NXT, NXT UK and
wrestling legends.
In your face, Brand Split.
A scramble ensued with the undercard trying
to become the first champion – including …Drake
Maverick – which Titus O’Neil won!
A reign that lasted barely a minute as Robert
Roode attacked him on the ramp to become the
second champion – which means moustache break!
Hopefully the championship also extends to
inanimate objects, like DDT’s Ironman Heavymetalweight
Title, who’s former champions include a
pint of beer, a steel ladder, a stuffed Hello
Kitty doll, and a miniature Dachshund dog
called Cocolo.
R-Truth tricked Roode in a later segment for
another title change, and he’s still the
champion at the time of writing.
Interestingly, though, the 24/7 belt wasn’t
the only change to WWE Foley announced.
He also promised: “Starting tonight the
third hour of Raw each and every week is about
to get downright mean and nasty, a little
bit dirty…”
And on saying that, the lighting for the arena
changed, taking away a lot of the crowd illumination
and making it more like the presentation of
Sadly, even the darker lights couldn’t diminish
the presence of The OmniShane – where he interfered
to help Drew McIntyre beat the Miz. Roman
chased the heels off at the end.
Samoa Joe revealed Rey Mysterio is injured,
so he should do the right thing and hand him
back his US Title.
Which actually is the right thing, as Joe’s
shoulder was up when he lost it.
The state of the US title will be revealed
next week.
And the main event was the Kofi and Seth vs
Bobby and…
Baron Corbin tag match, which was suddenly
changed to a No DQ stipulation during the
entrances – implying some heel authority figure
The real intrigue was once Kofi and Seth had
won, for Lesnar to come down and tease a cash-in.
He’s going to keep them waiting, though,
and he’ll be on next week’s Raw to announce
who he’ll fight.
The 24/7 Championship is a fun idea, and the
production lighting change in the third hour
gave Raw a different edge to usual.
WWE are trying to improve their product, and
for that they should be commended.
But putting Baron Corbin and Bobby Lashley
in the main event and beating Ricochet in
the 2nd hour isn’t the way to do that.
This week’s Raw is AvRAWge.
Now over to Pete with the news!
Great review Oli, I assume there’s been
at least one more 24/7 title change in the
time you did your review.
Now don’t worry, Luke hasn’t suddenly
gotten shorter and a lot more handsome, it’s
just me filling in for him as he’s had a
busy weekend surrounding the whole ordeal
with Hangman Page and PAC at WrestleGate.
If you haven’t seen what the story is about,
make sure to click the ‘i’ above my head
to be taken to that video now.
PAC has seemingly quit AEW, with a replacement
promised for Page at their debut show, Double
or Nothing.
We’re only 4 days away from the event, and
if you’re in the UK and wondering how to
watch the show, it’ll be available to watch
on ITV Box Office – which you can find more
about by going to www.itvboxoffice.com.
And make sure to follow them on Twitter @ITVWrestling.
The links are in the video description below!
Starrcast II is set to take place in the days
prior to Double or Nothing, however one of
the bigger names announced for the show, has
now been forced to be withdrawn.
Two-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair was recently
taken to a hospital in order to have heart
surgery, with conflicting reports from TMZ
Sports suggesting it was a medical emergency
and he was rushed there, with others such
as Ric Flair’s own son-in-law, Conrad Thompson,
stating it was all a planned procedure in
I think I’d probably believe his family
over TMZ.
The surgery reportedly suffered from delays
and complications, forcing Ric to pull out
of his scheduled appearance at the event.
It has not been confirmed as of yet whether
there will be a replacement for him at the
But in more positive news, it’s being reported
by TMZ Sports via a statement from Flair’s
wife, Wendy Barlow, that the surgery was a
success and that Ric is now in recovery.
Good on ya Ric, woo!
It’s unfortunate that plans have to be changed
so soon to the event taking place, but I’m
sure if Ric was in tip-top shape, the plans
would have remained.
The same cannot be said however, for Vince
McMahon, who once again, seems to have changed
some major plans in WWE whenever he felt like
This past Sunday saw Brock Lesnar make a shocking
appearance back to the ring, winning the Money
in the Bank match, even though he wasn’t
a competitor in the match.
Makes perfect sense.
Wrestling fans were left confused and angry
at the outcome, especially considering that
the reliable WrestleVotes had been reporting
that WWE were looking to push the winner of
the MITB match, and make them “look like
a star”.
Well now WrestleVotes have a follow up, which
also reveals the original plans for the winner
of the match before Lesnar was decided.
“The Brock decision was made last weekend.
Up until that point it was nearly a 50/50
tossup between McIntyre & Ali to take the
As this tweet was made yesterday on May 20th,
it’s unclear whether this means it was the
weekend when Money in the Bank took place,
or the weekend prior, but regardless it’s
clear that Andrade was never going to win
the match and that makes me sad.
The decision to have Lesnar win the briefcase
has been pretty openly lambasted by wrestling
fans, but it’s not just the fans that have
been having their say, as one of the men that
was reportedly touted to win the match has
taken a shot at Lesnar, with Ali tweeting:
“Look at the bright side, @brocklesnar climbing
a ladder is the most wrestling he’s done all
But Ali’s not the only one getting in on
the fun, as AEW’s Chris Jericho chimed in
“Awesome to see @BrockLesnar win the #MoneyInTheBank
match…even though he wasn’t officially
Brock is the future of the biz and this perfect
example of genius booking shows why @WWE will
remain on top FOREVER!
I’m not sure if you guys can pick up on
this, it’s very subtle, but I think, maybe,
just maybe, he might be being a little sarcastic.

  1. How about we have a butter filled sock on a pole match for the womens title and Becky Lynch can get the belt back after she smacks bayley in the face with a butter sock. 👍

  2. Nightmare Gaming GamersAsylum

    Anyone else think they should have brought back the hardcore title? It's the same concept, so why give it such a stupid name instead of just bringing the hardcore title?

  3. This whole ppv was CRAP! And the 24/7 title is just the hardcore 2019 light title and this storyline is just like the rest of the current storylines..OBSOLETE! DELETE them!! DELETE! DELETE! DELETE! DELETE!

  4. Christopher Graham

    I fell asleep watching this ep. Also, I wish Robert Rude's new intro be the "Mustache Break" (also, the "Mustache Break" should be his new finisher)

  5. Ali or Andrade were the perfect candidates for the briefcase, but as usual WWE ruin something that would of really helped another talent establish themselves as a top tier superstar

  6. Wwe’s storyline are friggin everywhere… there’s no friggin structure, main guys from nxt are friggin wasted… stupid finish to mitb and super showdown is fuckin shite… looking forward to AEW STARTING UP..

  7. 24/7 Belt for lower or mid card title. Or a BS title for people in the back something to do..fill time for people at show for piss break..

  8. 24/7 championship exclusively for jobbers. Got no story line? Haven’t appeared on Raw in months? Well boy do we have the championship for you.

  9. Talk Time With Matt and Derik

    2 questions still unanswered, Who threw a pie in Kevin Owens face? and who left Sami hanging upside down?

  10. Brad The Miracle Boy

    I never fully understand the wildcard rule but I guess that dnt matter anymore coz anyone can turn up 4 the new belt

  11. It really sucks that one of the guys that spoke out against Lars Sullivan's racism is now being forced to make Lars look good

  12. How about Miz trying out new moves like a spring board hammer (sloppy but interesting). 24/7 is great for business. Ricochet is hurt but how about Cesaro back to The Bar attire and signs. How about a distraction from there being an automatic cash in on Seth. First time ever the champion is hunting the brief case. The announcement that Brock is going to announce next week who he will target. How about the Lars Sullivan segment was a win for Lucho House part whose sticking with the gimmick and Kalisto showing he is the leader of that team. How about a great explanation to the poor Rey/Joe ref count and an excellent promo cut by Joe whose entering into an excellent rivalry with Rey and his new coming son to the business. I still watch the channel but this is why I unsubscribed.

  13. You all get shocked by decisions made by the guy who RUNS the show. Hilarious. Why did you give away cases of beer??? WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT?!

  14. Fritz XXI-TFK-777

    Maybe the darker lights are to obscure low crowd numbers in the third hour? Is that something that even exists?

  15. That 24/7 belt is a joke. So now we have a "participation trophy" for the jobbers. It's sad watching all these journeymen scrambling around for the ugliest belt in the WWE. While I'm on the topic of jobbers. Why the hell are Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson not in the tag team title circle? These guys clearly aren't jobbers but Vince has done everything he can to bury them. Also I bet EC3 wished he never left TNA. Buried!! Future AEW talent? Probably.

  16. So WWE couldn't just bring back the hardcore title because it was basically the 24/7 championship so why did they have to make a new one?

  17. cannibal social network

    Why are "Superstars" scrambling over a meaningless, non-prestigious title? No one cares about this and it will be dropped and forgotten about soon.

  18. I like the 24/7 title. It’ll give the mid/lower card wrestlers something to do and adds relevant content to Raw and Smackdown (Smackdown doesn’t need it but regardless)

  19. I think the 24/7 Title is moronic and a waste of time but I think that is the point, to use some time up but in a boring and retarded way. I hate this Title and pray it has a short life.

  20. The Pac vs Page was eh, if its suppose to be a feeling out match before the actual match then thats fine but….

  21. The new 24/7 Championship is fucking horrendous. It's not going to do anything to get anyone over, and it's not going to do anything about boosting ratings. Typical Vince McMahon buffoonery.

  22. The concept of the 24/7 title is awesome , that design though worse then the universal & that greatest royal rumble title

  23. Dang…Ali or McIntyre would have been amazing. Andrade straight up murdered 3 people in that match, I would love to see him win it too. but no…it was…sigh…Brock.

  24. Sergio Cristancho

    dear Oli, Learn ! life is full of deception non of your spectations are gonna get full filled by a tv show ( GOT) or a Wrestling Program (WWE) soooo get over it and remind all there is entertaing acts, even when you are not happy you get entertained because they just delivered, your costant complain is pointless but you got a job made of criticism then do it be a critic not a crying baby asking for the next big shiny toy.
    rewievs are going to the vortex that you make funny impression… nowhere!

  25. They need to put a stipulation on the 24/7 title! Something like if someone can hold the title for a month straight they get a world/universal title shot but need to relinquish the belt like the destination x stipulation in tna/impact

  26. I know people are saying Roman Reigns is overexposed with the wild card rule but to be fair everyone is overexposed right now. Its the same people getting air time each week. Don't just focus on Roman, the entire Wild Card rule is terrible.

  27. Wait, Wait, Wait so when WWE pipes (cheers) to Romans entrance it'll look stupid as hell with an audience less than 1,800 😂🤣😆😭

  28. All the 24/7 title is the Hardcore title from back in the day when Wwe used to have it besides WCW and ECW!!!!!

  29. Honestly I was upset when Brock won the mitb but then I thought about it. This A one storytelling Seth became the man by cashing in on Brock and beating Roman. So Brock cashing on Seth to steal the title one last time makes perfect since.

  30. This 24/7 is basically a jobbers championship. We can tell by the people running after it.
    The only thing that is intriguing me is the retro looking lighting of the arena in the third hour of Raw…even though I didn’t understand what’s the point of it

  31. 24/7 belt is great, if you like watching low card talent chasing each other around for an hour. I'm sure that will bring the 3rd hour ratings up…

  32. Vince reminds me of Al Davis former owner for the Raiders he just seems like he’s losing it and just throwing shit together!

  33. AEW is going to crush WWE. WWE needs to get something fresh. Instead of the same BS we get week after week. Just shows WWE doesn't care about its fans. Look at the ratings Vince, we're tired of the same rehashed crap.

  34. Mick didn't say the 24/7 belt was just a men's belt what if the woman could also win the belt also that way it would be anybody at anytime.

  35. Lebogang Mokhondo

    But just to raise the steaks they should say for every 24 hours you the champ you get $5000 and if u have it for 7 days straight the week you get to challenge the US or The Intercontinental Champion if would have more meaning then it just being a 24/7 title and people chasing after it and for what?🤷‍♂️

  36. Why is the 24/7 belt being called "New"? (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNXvCAwwhhY&t=8s) Oli, find a way to show who is hosting these shows. I have found I can only tolerate you and Luke solo shows or with each other.

  37. Lol I had to actually rewind to the mustache break for once because I couldn't get enough of it, it's so damn funny 😆

  38. nothing changed when the lighting did though, it's just a smoke screen to make it seem like it's going to be more edgy when really it won't be
