In This Corner: Austin Theory captures MITB title | Sports

After losing his United States championship earlier in the show to Bobby Lashley, Vince McMahon favorite Austin Theory captured the Money In The Bank Briefcase in the main event of last weekend’s sold-out Money In The Bank WWE pay-per-view in Las Vegas after Liv Morgan had done the same in the women’s event, stunning mostly everybody in the universe by cashing in the prize on Ronda Rousey and pinning her to become the new Smackdown women’s champion after Rousey had defeated challenger Natalya moments earlier.

The pushes given to such young talents seems to demonstrate the company is finally serious about giving thus far un-established performers the opportunity to carry the ball.
