Below are a couple of top Money In The Bank news stories of the day.

• There was a pinfall botch during the World Heavyweight Championship match between Damian Priest and Seth Rollins at Money In The Bank.

Rollins went for a pinfall attempt on Priest and the referee stopped counting at 2 despite Priest not kicking out. You can watch it below:

When asked about this during the post-show press conference, Triple H joked that the referee’s decision is final. Human beings are in the ring, mistakes happen. It is what it is. It’s a shame that that’s all people are going to remember from this match.

According to the Wrestling Observer, Drew McIntyre’s music hitting was NOT supposed to break up the count, and it was just Priest who forgot to kick out.

In an update, WrestleVotes reported that there’s no heat on the referee for this botch:

“I’m told there is no real heat on referee Rod Zapada following the mishap on Saturday night during the World Championship match. A source said, ‘In years past, absolutely.’”

Your fine is now doubled.
