WWE Money in the Bank 2018 results

Alexa Bliss won the WWE Money in the Bank briefcase then cashed-in to win Raw's women's title and deny Ronda Rousey her first championship.

The Goddess was victorious in a thrilling ladder match last night and did not wait long to capitalise with her contract for a world title opportunity.

After a brilliant battle with the monstrous Nia Jax, former UFC icon Rousey was about to force the Raw Women's Champion to submit to an armbar.

Out of nowhere Bliss appeared and smashed Rousey and then Jax with the briefcase, beat Ronda down, then hit Nia with a DDT and Twisted Bliss.

The crowd at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois went wild and the opportunistic Alexa celebrated becoming a five-time world champion in WWE.

It was the perfect way to hold off on putting the gold on Ronda just yet - despite the megastar once

It topped off a great night for WWE's female locker room, as the women's MITB ladder match was also the better of the two served up on the evening.

Ironically, Bliss was the least active performer in that contest, which took place at a frantic pace, with Ember Moon certainly stealing the show early on.

Many had predicted the former NXT Women's Champion would shine, but a less-heralded star, Lana, also wowed fans, showing she is training very hard.

The night began with The Bludgeon Brothers (Harper and Rowan) defeating Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson in a pretty good tag team match, with a nice finish.

The main show opened with the hugely popular Daniel Bryan again proving size and power is no substitute for technical wrestling ability by tying Big Cass up in knots.

Cass had earlier slammed Bryan after a torture rack, but when he tried again, Daniel landed on his feet, hit a running knee, and then submitted him with a heel hook.

Bobby Lashley has been booked really badly since his WWE return, but he eventually turned the contrary crowd's jeers into cheers in a decent match with Sami Zayn.

Seth Rollins bested Elias in a slow-burner for the Intercontinental Championship, which saw the fighting champion have to resort to pulling the tights in a roll-up pin.

Elias seemingly still has a lot to learn in the ring but he really brought his best in a final stretch where he caught a suicide dive and slammed Rollins into a barricade.

Following the red hot women's MITB ladder match, Roman Reigns defeated Jinder Mahal in the 'cool off' spot on the card, a strange position to see the Big Dog.

It was a decent match and both men worked hard, but the fans could not have cared less, showing once again just how badly Roman's character is failing.

Carmella retained the SmackDown Women's Championship in a solid match against Asuka, which had a great ending and was one of the moments of the night.

Asuka punished Mella for long periods with kicks, hip attacks and suplexes, before the champion wormed her way back into the bout with some classic heel tactics.

The challenger was back on the attack when someone appeared on the apron wearing her mask and robe, with that person Carmella's old ally, James Ellsworth!

The distraction proved enough for Carmella to get the win with a Princess Kick, in reality the only logical way she was going to defeat someone of Asuka's calibre.

AJ Styles just managed to cling onto his WWE Championship in a great Last Man Standing match against his tormentor since WrestleMania, Shinsuke Nakamura.

They slowly cranked up the tension, surviving referee counts building up to seven, eight and then nine, then unleashed nearly all of the tricks in their arsenal.

One highlight saw Nakamura set AJ up on an announce table, then run across all three of the other tables to hit a Kinshasa, leading to a nine count.

He tossed the champion head first through a wooden table in the ring, but injured his knee on an exposed turnbuckle, which AJ then decided to target.

The Phenomenal One made Shinsuke submit to a Calf Crusher, which couldn't win him the match, but could affect his opponent's ability to stand.

AJ smashed his knee with a metal chair, but was too over-enthusiastic and took a low blow, before a Kinshasa got Nakamura another nine count.

The champion then hit a great Styles Clash on Nakamura, jumping off the steel steps onto the floor, but somehow Shinsuke clambered back up.

AJ could not believe his grinning foe had survived the attack, but a kick to the crown jewels dropped Nakamura back down, before a tremendous finish.

Styles hit a Phenomenal Forearm from the ring to the outside, smashing Nakamura through an announce table in the process, to retain his prized title.

It was easily the best match of their feud so far and with the outcome being so close at the end, this is surely not the end of their rivalry.

The men's Money in the Bank ladder match closed the show and saw everyone involved try to bury the biggest threat, Braun Strowman, under a pile of ladders.

They then tried to put him through a table, with Kevin Owens climbing a giant ladder. Yet the monster climbed up and threw KO down through a table himself.

Samoa Joe looked the big man's most dangerous opponent, while Kofi Kingston and Rusev also impressed during the middle section of the encounter.

The Miz - many people's pick to win - was not as involved as expected, while Bobby Roode's most memorable moments saw him on the receiving end.

Rusev applied a triple Accolade on Kingston, Roode and Miz, before the move of the night saw Finn Balor nail Bobby with a gigantic Coup de Grace off a ladder.

Strowman climbed towards the briefcase with Kingston on his back, managing to shove Balor down and shrug off Kofi before becoming "Monster in the Bank".

It was a fun match but it couldn't live up to the drama of the Alexa Bliss title win beforehand and Strowman seems an odd choice as the MITB briefcase holder.

Ideally, he will march out on RAW tomorrow night and simply announce that he is cashing in at SummerSlam and that Lesnar better get ready to lose his belt.
