First, the pre-show, a last-minute addition of the WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship and a family affair all round.

It was father and son vs brother and brother and both teams gave it their very all and put it all on their line for their blood.

This content is imported from YouTube. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

The Mysterios nearly had it when Rey cued up a big 619, but Jey took the hit for Jimmy and then returned the favour by cheekily helping him with a rollup when the ref wasn't looking.

At this point in the night then, the Bloodline has all the gold.

The main show opened with what had the potential to be the match of the night, with eight women going for the chance to climb the ladder and become Ms Money in the Bank.

At time it looked like Alexa Bliss would use her rather special powers to get the edge, but even the supernatural can't survive the chaos of a MITB ladder match.

With ladders and women flying around and Liv Morgan and Nattie coming close, it was superhero Nikki ASH who took advantage of the mayhem to scale the ladder and snatch the briefcase.

Next up was another men's tag match, as AJ Styles and Omos looked to defend their Raw crown against a resurgent Viking Raiders.

Resurgent they are and massive in size, sure, but despite their best efforts neither Erik nor Ivar could really lay a finger on the giant that is Omos.

AJ Styles got in all the quick offense before getting the big man in to finish the job, and it all ended with Omos pinning Erik and the odd couple retaining.

With Drew McIntyre at the back of the line, it was the chance for someone else to take a shot at Bobby Lashley.

And last night, that someone was Kofi Kingston, and (nearly) every one of those fans back in the house for MITB was eager for KofiMania to run wild once more.

Unfortunately, it wasn't to be.

In the shortest match of the night, Kofi barely got a look-in as Lashley rode roughshod over the challenger.

He eventually hit finisher after finisher after finisher, and ended things up with a brutal Hurt Lock to put things to bed.

Bad news for Kofi Kingston, and almost as bad for Drew McIntyre, who's still banned from challenging the champ until he loses.

Next up was the WWE Raw Women's Championship, with Charlotte Flair getting her third bite at the apple.

This content is imported from YouTube. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

She failed to get the gold after a Triple Threat at WrestleMania Backlash and one-on-one at Hell in a Cell, but wasn't going to let the title evade her again.

Flair brushed off the crowed clamouring for the return of Becky Lynch and instead just focussed on doing what she does best: winning WWE Women's Championships.

This content is imported from YouTube. You may be able to find the same content in another format, or you may be able to find more information, at their web site.

After some hard-hitting back and forth between both women, Flair made good use of the ring furniture to do some damage before applying a Figure Eight that Rhea Ripley just couldn't escape.

Title a squillion for Charlotte Flair, which sets things up more than nicely for when Becky Lynch does actually return.

The penultimate match of the night was the WWE Men's Money in the Bank Ladder Match, with every one of the eight competitors surely fancying their chances on the way in.

There was chaos. Pandemonium. Massive falls and slams on to ladders, with poor Kevin Owens and Ricochet seeming to take the very hardest hits on to the folding steel.

Ever the opportunist, Seth Rollins looked poised to be the man to take advantage of all the madness and relive his pre-WM31 glory days.

But shrugging off his brother's hefty loss earlier in the evening, the New Day man had other ideas.

Big E hit a big ending on Seth off the ladder, and then slowly, carefully scaled to the top to grab his prize, sending the WWE Universe utterly wild.

Then it was the main event, with Edge FINALLY getting his chance at a 1vs1 against the ever-dominant Roman Reigns.

Edge would have thought he'd have that at WrestleMania having won this year's Royal Rumble, but Daniel Bryan got himself involved and RR took advantage of the extra factors.

A hard-hitting instant classic from the off, this one went past 30 minutes and both men would have thought they had it in the bag with some near falls.

The Usos made their inevitable appearance after the referee was knocked out the picture, but, still smarting from their defeat to the brothers earlier tonight The Mysterios put an end to that interference.

In the end it was Roman Reigns's OTHER family, his estranged Sheild brother Seth Rollins who made all the difference, sticking his nose in not once but twice.

While Edge survived a Superkick from the false messiah, and dished out a Spear not long after, Seth offered enough of a distraction for Roman Reigns to hit a Spear of his own and close things out.

Roman Reigns retains, but he'll have his hands full at SummerSlam with a very different type of challenge.

As Reigns celebrated, a certain Mr John Cena hit the ring, got in his face with a You Can’t See Me, and set us on one hell of a path for the summer.

John Cena made his return to WWE, showing up after Reigns took the microphone and said, “Now the whole world can acknowledge me.” Cena's music hit and he made the sprint to the ring and running the ropes. Cena never said a word, instead moving toward Reigns before delivering the “You can't see me” hand gesture as the show went off the air.

Universal Championship — Roman Reigns (c) vs. Edge: The match started with a pair of collar and elbow ties, first with Roman shoving Edge to the corner and shoving his face and then with Edge returning the favor. After more gamesmanship, Reigns drove Edge from the ring with a big shoulder block. Reigns tried to follow up with strikes, but Edge countered and started working on the arm, driving Reigns into the ring post twice, softening him up for the crossface. Edge's attack was finally cut off when Reigns hit a Samoan drop outside the ring. Reigns tossed Edge around ringside, smashing him into the ring steps multiple times with a methodical pace.

Reigns locked Edge in an extended chinlock, screaming that he could hold Edge in that position all night if he chose to. Edge countered a Superman punch into a backslide for a near fall, giving his first glimpse of hope since the opening of the match. After an Edgecution, Edge again nearly scored the win, finally building momentum against the champ. Edge locked in the crossface but Reigns was able to escape by grabbing the bottom rope. Reigns then countered a spear attempt by locking in a guillotine choke.

After the action spilled back outside the ring, Reigns missed a spear, driving himself through the barricade. Edge stopped the referee's 10 count and left the ring to spear Reigns through a second barricade. Reigns hit a superman punch that also took out the referee when Edge crashed into his knee. With the ref down, Reigns rolled out of the ring and broke the bottom off a steel chair, saying he'd teach Edge a lesson, trying to lock in the assisted crossface. Edge reversed with a series of headbutts before locking in the crossface with the metal pole. The Usos tried to make the save but they were taken out by The Mysterios. Still with no referee in the match, Seth Rollins ran in and superkicked Edge before walking off. Reigns went for a spear, but Edge hit one of his own. A new referee had to run to the ring, giving Reigns enough time to kick out. Rollins returned to the ring, drawing Edge to kick him from the ring apron and allowing Reigns to hit a spear to retain his title. After the match, Rollins jumped in the ring to continue attacking Edge before the two brawled to the back. A slow build led to a very hot finish, overbooked but in the best way, with interference, ref bumps and the “I'd have won if the ref were still here” nonsense that makes wrestling work. Roman Reigns (c) def. Edge to retain the title. Grade: A

Men's Money in the Bank — Ricochet vs. John Morrison vs. Riddle vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Big E vs. Kevin Owens vs. Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Seth Rollins: An all-out brawl got things going at the jump before Rollins and Morrison argued over who truly had “drip.” Ricochet and Riddle both came flying in on Rollins and Morrison, eventually thinning things to Big E and McIntyre in the ring. Morrison had a big highlight early moment, coming off the ladder with a twisting body block. Morrison and Rollins eventually began working together to take out other competitors, also setting up a ladder suspended between the ring apron and the commentary table. Morrison also helped Rollins hit a falcon arrow onto a ladder on Owens after Owens hit a springboard moonsault on both men. Eventually, Rollins turned on Morrison, as expected, striking him with a ladder.

It was then McIntyre's turn to take over, slamming Ricochet into a ladder with a reverse spinebuster and hitting a slipping dive over the top rope onto the rest of the field. McIntyre was taken out of the match when Jinder Mahal, Veer and Shanky ran in and attacked before dragging McIntyre to the back. Ricochet had one of the most iconic moments of the match when he leaped from a ladder as Riddle was tipping it over, hitting the top rope and flipping onto a group on the outside. Shortly after was another big bump as Rollins powerbombed Owens from the ring and through the ladder that was suspended on the commentary table earlier in the match.

As Rollins seemed ready to grab the briefcase, Big E caught him and hit the Big Ending off the ladder. Big E then climbed the ladder and grabbed the briefcase to win the match. The absolute right call for a winner and a great moment in a very entertaining Money in the Bank match. Big E won Money in the Bank. Grade: A-

Raw Women's Championship — Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Charlotte Flair: Flair gave the fans a middle finger at the start of the match, establishing herself as the heel in this somewhat confusing rivalry. Flair then started hot, knocking Ripley from the ring apron before hitting a t-bone suplex into the turnbuckle when the action returned to the ring. Ripley came back by going after Flair's injured knee and dumping her over the top rope. Ripley tried to follow up a big German suplex with a dropkick but instead found herself in a Boston crab as he action continued to swing back and forth with huge moves, including Flair's top-rope moonsault to the outside and Ripley locking in her modified Texas cloverleaf. Flair reversed Riptide into a DDT for a near fall as the crowd began buying into the match in a big way. Flair hit Natural Selection from the top rope for a very convincing near fall, drawing a huge reaction from the crowd. Ripley missed a charge into the corner and Flair took her to the outside, sandwiching Ripley's leg between the post and the ring steps before kicking repeatedly kicking the steps. With Ripley's leg softened up, Flair locked in the Figure-Eight to force the tap and regain the championship. This was an outstanding match that overcame early chants of “We want Becky” to draw “This is awesome” chants as the crowd fully bought in. Charlotte Flair def. Rhea Ripley (c) to win the title. Grade: A-
