WWE decided to try and make two new stars at this year’s Money in the Bank.
Two stars that have never been to the promise land before have won the Money in the Bank contracts with Big E securing the men’s and Nikki A.S.H taking the women’s.
Nikki A.S.H – where the A.S.H stands for Almost a Super Hero – was the first victor as the Women’s Money in the Bank match opened up the main show.
The Scot defeated Zelina Vega, Natalya, Tamina, Asuka, Liv Morgan, Alexa Bliss and Naomi to take the briefcase just a few weeks after changing her character from the formerly beloved Nikki Cross.
Cross has the formidable task of cashing in on either new and now 14-time world champion Charlotte Flair or the SmackDown Women’s champion, Bianca Belair.
For the men, Big E’s moment finally arrived.
The New Day man outlasted an incredible field that featured Seth Rollins, Ricochet, John Morrison, Drew McIntyre, Shinsuke Nakamura, Riddle and Kevin Owens.
Heading into the event, Big E spoke to talkSPORT and talked about how he felt his career had stalled a little since WrestleMania.
“It’s chaotic here, it’s constant chaos! The plan is always in flux, even when there is a plan the thing can unfold at any time,” said Big E.
“It felt, for me, being inside of it, that there’s a plan here and a path. Then WrestleMania happens and now it feels that plan is off-track. My hope is to get it back on track.
“I think what I’ve done the past couple of months has been nothing to write home about and I was pretty proud of the stuff I was doing earlier this year right up until WrestleMania.”
Big E can either challenge Roman Reigns on SmackDown or, he can try and avenge the dominating loss his New Day brother Kofi Kingston suffered at the hands of Bobby Lashey on the RAW side of things.
