WWE Money in the Bank: Ronda Rousey vies for a title, but Alexa Bliss walks away the winner

Chicago’s Allstate Arena hosted what many, including myself, consider the fifth-biggest pay-per-view on the WWE calendar on Sunday night, Money in the Bank. Complete with two women’s championship matches, a women’s Money in the Bank ladder match, a men’s Money in the Bank ladder match, WWE Championship match, and Intercontinental Championship match, the card was stacked from top to bottom.

WWE Backlash: Daniel Bryan’s singles return on PPV can’t save an otherwise lackluster show

The Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. was the site for the first WWE pay-per-view after their Superstar Shake-Up, which took place a week after WrestleMania, and it should be noted the card was pretty stacked because of it.

WWE Fastlane: Styles survives, Asuka to challenge Charlotte Flair

The main event featured five guys – but no burgers or fries – and the undercard was less than stellar. Maybe that’s a reason why, after WrestleMania, WWE is doing away with the brand-exclusive pay-per-views.

The final Raw-exclusive brand pay-per-view took place Sunday night as WWE presented Elimination Chamber from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

2018 WWE Royal Rumble: Nakamura, Asuka reign as Rumble winners; Ronda Rousey officially debuts

It had been three years since WWE's Royal Rumble event emanated from the Wells Fargo Center in Philly, and the ending to that one with Roman Reigns standing tall with The Rock trying to get the crowd behind him did not exactly go over as well as WWE had hoped. The recent run of Rumble pay-per-views had left a lot to be desired in terms of the winners and how the crowd would react to them. It's been a while since the crowd really got behind the Rumble winner the way we'd been accustomed to through the years.
