Cody Rhodes puts Dominik Mysterio in his place at Money in the Bank

Cody Rhodes puts Dominik Mysterio

Fans were eager to see how Dominik Mysterio would fare in his match against one of WWE’s great standard bearers, Cody Rhodes, at Money in the Bank.

Was he planning to enlist Rhea Ripley’s assistance, providing fans with the kind of Chyna-approved segments that have been a rare treat for the WWE Universe since she began working with “Dirty Dom?” Would Brock Lesnar, who was instructed he could wrestle with Rhodes at any time, accept the “American Nightmare’s” open challenge and give a beatdown equivalent to Shayna Baszler turning on Ronda Rousey earlier in the card?

As it turns out, none of the above; instead, Rhodes and Mysterio engaged in a cat-and-mouse bout for just over eight minutes, with the “Grandson of a Plummer” securing the pin and pretty much leaving it at that.

So, what’s the deal? There were so many intriguing match alternatives, and instead of pursuing any of them, Paul “Triple H” Levesque effectively used the bout as filler between Drew McIntyre’s homecoming and John Cena’s return.

As it turned out, the answer was yes, and unless RAW has some grander plans for the win, this felt more like a television match than a Premium Live Event showcase, with the bout simply booked to give the “American Nightmare” a massive Money in the Bank pop in the UK. To say the least, perplexing.
