The AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura feud may have started out with a dream match at WrestleMania 34 earlier this year, but their rivalry has turned personal. The two of them have faced each other in several more matches since their original WrestleMania match, including at last night’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view. Shinsuke Nakamura and AJ Styles squared off one more time in a Last Man Standing match with Styles’ WWE Championship on the line. It was a brutal war that was arguably the best match in their rivalry so far, but Nakamura was still unable to dethrone AJ Styles. After both men fell to the floor, Styles was able to get back on his feet before the 10-count to retain his title.
AND STILL your @WWE Champion…

Money in the Bank may have been a fantastic show, but there was another interesting piece of new content released by WWE right after the pay-per-view came to an end. A brand new WWE 24 documentary based on Matt and Jeff Hardy premiered on the network last night. The special digs into the careers of the brothers while also talking about their past issues with addiction before, of course, covering their redemption and eventual return to WWE during WrestleMania 33 in 2017. As is usually the case with WWE 24 specials, it provides a unique behind the scenes look that fans do not get to see too often. The documentary is available to watch on-demand on the WWE Network right now.

Former WWE Superstar CM Punk may not have been successful in his second official MMA fight during the recent UFC 225 pay-per-view, but there is no denying that he took a huge risk when he left the squared circle to chase his dream of competing in the octagon. WWE Hall of Famer Booker T recently weighed in with some of his own thoughts on Punk’s loss to Mike Jackson during the Money in the Bank Kickoff show. The former world champion brought up Punk’s fight and claimed that he “got the breaks beat off him.” Although several fans are hopeful that he could return to wrestling at some point, CM Punk has acknowledged that he is no longer fond of the sport and has no desire to come back at the moment.
