Episode notes

It’s a brand new week in wrestling as Money in the Bank is finally on the horizon!

The stage is set for those who will compete in the ladder matches on June 17th, but who’s in the best position to get that golden ticket for the world title match? And has WWE been building this up the contest for all of the entrants in the right way?

Plus, NXT red-hot angle between Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa has continued to pick up steam, and has now incorporated Candice LeRae, Gargano’s real-life wife. But she’s someone who’s known around the country for standing on her own; shouldn’t she be plowing her own path rather than just following in her man’s story?

All of this, plus a look whether or not the Universal Title is relevant, the B-Team barbecue vs. Naomi and Lana’s dance-off and Julian stan’s for the cruiserweight championship match between Cedric Alexander and Buddy Murphy.
