John Morrison had a difficult task ahead of him on tonight’s episode of Monday Night RAW. One of the three qualifying matches for the Money in the Bank ladder match pitted Johnny Drip Drip against The Viper, Randy Orton.
Randy Orton was definitely the favorite to win the bout, but John Morrison pinned Orton for the three count, securing his berth in the Money in the Bank ladder battle.
To begin with, The Viper appeared to be in complete command and appeared to be on his way to assume his place at Money in the Bank. The Miz’s presence at ringside, on the other hand, proved to be a problem.Orton was having trouble handling things, but things became even worse when Riddle came out to aid. This only served to further distract the former WWE Champion, costing him the bout.
It’s quite exciting to see John Morrison qualify for the match, and it adds a fresh and unexpected aspect to the ladder match.
It’ll also be intriguing to see how Randy Orton handles the situation in the future. Particularly because Riddle, his RK-Bro teammate, was the one who cost him the match.
At MITB, John Morrison joins Ricochet as a RAW representative.
After defeating Randy Orton, John Morrison becomes the second WWE Superstar to qualify for the Money in the Bank ladder match. Ricochet joins Johnny Drip Drip, who defeated AJ Styles in a qualifying battle earlier in the night.
Ricochet has been struggling to gather momentum after a string of losses to Sheamus, and this was a major triumph for him.
Drew McIntyre will meet Riddle in the final qualifying match of the night to determine who will be the third superstar to qualify for the ladder match. It will be fascinating to see how things progress.
