Opinion: This is the part of the year that I dread the most. We’re stuck on the road to Money in the Bank and now it’s about “building momentum” which likely means singles and tag matches between the people who have already qualified. That’s all well and good, until you realize that pinning someone gives you no advantage whatsoever in climbing a ladder, and until you realize that this is all we get every year. In other words, it’s repetitive and lazy, which makes for a long build towards the show.
