You can see the full results of WWE Money In The Bank here and the complete results of NXT Heatwave right here.

New WWE Tag Team champions on SmackDown

Last Friday on WWE SmackDown, A-Town Down Under’s Austin Theory & Grayson Waller had to put the WWE Tag Team titles on the line against the members of DIY, Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa. The challengers had some chances to become champions earlier this year. First, at WrestleMania in the 6-Pack Ladder match for the Undisputed Tag titles and, later in the month of April, by facing Awesome Truth on Monday Night Raw for the WWE World Tag Team championships. Both times, they came short. But this time, Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa managed to be the better team and they defeated A-Town Down Under by submission to become the new WWE Tag Team champions. They win their first titles together on the main roster. They had been NXT Tag Team champions several years ago, between November 2016 and January 2017.

Tiffany Stratton is your Miss Money In The Bank

This Saturday night at Money In The Bank 2024, a new Miss Money In The Bank was crowned in Tiffany Stratton. The former NXT Women’s champion defeated Chelsea Green, IYO SKY, Lyra Valkyria, Naomi and Zoey Stark to win the briefcase for the first time in her career. She now sets her eyes on championship gold in WWE.

CM Punk screws Drew McIntyre…again

On the Men’s side, Drew McIntyre was the one to win the Money In The Bank Ladder match on the opening contest of Saturday night’s PLE in Toronto. He became Mr. Money In The Bank for the first time in his career. Later in the evening, Damian Priest had to defend the World Heavyweight championship against Seth Rollins. “The Scottish Psychopath” interfered during the contest to make it a Triple Threat match and cash-in his Money In The Bank contract. Unfortunately for him, CM Punk ruined his chances to become champion again by interfering in the middle of the match and hitting him with a steel chair and with the World title belt. This allowed Damian Priest to finish the match by inflincting the South Of Heaven to Drew McIntyre and pinning him to retain the World Heavyweight championship. Damian Priest is still champion, the briefcase has been wasted, and the face of CM Punk is still Drew McIntyre’s worst nightmare.

Ethan Page becomes the new face of NXT

One day after Money In The Bank, WWE presented NXT Heatwave that aired live from the same arena. Trick Williams defended the NXT championship in a Fatal 4-Way match against Ethan Page, Je’Von Evans and Shawn Spears in the main event. “All Ego” Ethan Page pinned Je’Von Evans to win the match and the championship in what was a surprise victory. Trick Williams will request a championship rematch as he was not the man who was pinned, but for now Ethan Page is the new face and champion of the black & gold brand.
