Money In The Bank attires, like wrestling itself, used to be fantastic.
Over the prior years, we've seen everybody from Lacey Evans to Kevin Owens deck themselves out in emerald in celebration of the the show's viridescent aesthetic. Wrestlers donning green and gold doesn't just make it explicitly clear what it is they've come to achieve; it looks lovely too.
What may sound like an idle distraction has added value in the current climate. The industry has rolled forward in the face of most others grinding to a halt, batting back criticisms and controversies as they always do to go on acting as if nothing's happening outside, unless you live in Stamford and your outside features 12 wrestlers trying to throw each other off the roof of the building.

With no New Day gear to wax lyrical on this month, these were the pair to watch here, even in defeat.
