The excruciating six-week wait for the first WWE PPV since WrestleMania 35 is finally over, but was it worth it?
With AEW's Double or Nothing set to take place this coming weekend, fans may have expected a pulling-out-all-the-stops showing from WWE, yet truer to form, the results were a mess of entertaining, aggressively mediocre and occasionally brilliant.
While WWE mercifully kept the pace snappy for the most part - burning through three of the twelve matches in under two minutes a-piece - the overall result still felt bloated and sloppy.
Though the show started and ended solidly enough - bar that controversial main event finish - the saggy middle-portion of Money in the Bank 2019 was a sure slog to sit through, encumbered by also-ran bouts that did little for anyone in them.
Refereeing was a disaster across countless matches, the crowd frequently lapsed into disinterest, and it was hard not to feel the same watching at home.
But on the plus side, half of the card was at least good, and the night's dream match more than lived up to the hype...
