Damian Priest’s Money in the Bank Botch: WWE’s Internal Reaction

One big thing: Damian Priest’s missed kickout at Money in the Bank wasn’t planned

WWE officials addressed Damian Priest’s failure to kick out of Seth Rollins’ pinfall attempt at Money in the Bank, confirming it was an unintended error.

• The referee stopped the count, recognizing it wasn’t time for the match to end.
• Triple H discussed the incident during the post-show meeting.
• If counted to three, it would have altered Drew McIntyre’s cash-in plans and Priest’s status in Judgment Day.

Why it matters

This incident highlights the high-stakes nature of live WWE events and the potential ripple effects of in-ring errors on ongoing storylines.

By the numbers

• 1 botched kickout
• 3 count avoided
• 2 potential storyline changes (McIntyre’s cash-in and Priest’s Judgment Day membership)

What they’re saying

A WWE backstage source told Fightful Select: “It was an unfortunate situation, but those don’t usually happen with Damian Priest, and he was probably more bothered about it than anyone.”

The big picture

WWE has been incorporating real-life situations into storylines recently. This incident could potentially be used to add an interesting twist to ongoing narratives.

What’s next

With SummerSlam approaching, WWE may choose to address this incident on television, potentially using it to enhance current storylines or create new ones.
