*My family and I were invited to this attend WWE’s Money in the Bank live pay per view event and received tickets at no charge. No other compensation was received. All opinions expressed here are strictly my own and were not influenced in any way**

Back in March I chaperoned my youngest son’s class field trip to the aquarium.  On both the bus ride to the aquarium and the ride home, all the little boys talked about was wrestling.  John Cena this and Kane that.  It was really cute, but prior to that, I didn’t realize that my son knew anything about any of the WWE wrestlers.  When we got home that night I asked him about it and he sure schooled me.  He knew them all and talked my ear off for a good half hour about the WWE and mostly John Cena.

When my family received an invitation to attend the live pay-per-view (PPV) event, Money in the Bank on June 29, 2014 at the TD Garden in Boston, I knew it was going to be the highlight of my boys summer!

We arrived at the show about an hour before the event started and my boys were super excited when we got there and they saw the ring all set up!

WWE Money in the Bank PPV

At the beginning of the show, Former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan made an appearance and gave the audience an update on his neck surgery recovery was going.  As soon as they announced his name, the crowd went insane.  They cheered him for a good couple of minutes and after everyone settled down, he told us that he didn’t know when he was going to return and that he actually might need to have another surgery.

There were eight matches took place at the Money in the Bank event and two of them were main events: 1. The traditional Money in a Bank Ladder match (which was won by Seth Rollins) and 2. Another ladder match for the vacant WWE World Heavyweight Championship (won by John Cena).

Here was the lineup of matches for the night:

1. The Usos vs. The Wyatt Family (Tag Team Championship)
2. Paige vs. Naomi (Divas Championship)
3. Damien Sandow (dressed as Paul Revere) vs. Adam Rose

7. Summer Rae vs. Layla
8. WWE World Heavyweight Championship Ladder Match featuring ray Wyatt, Sheamus, John Cena, Alberto Del Rio, Kane,Randy Orton, Roman Reigns, and Cesaro.

This was the fifth annual Money in the Bank event and I am so happy that my boys got to attend this particular event for their first WWE live experience.  I have been to a few live WWE events in the past, but there is nothing like being able to attend a pay-per-view show.  The crowd was so lively and fun & that definitely added to the experience for all of us.

In the audience, there were many hardcore fans with homemade signs that they worked so hard to make, young kids who, like my boys, were attending their first live show and of course, there were many longtime fans who are there just because they go to all the live shows when they come to town.  It was a very memorable experience for all of us.

  1. I love the ladder
    Match and I DONT care what anyone says it is not FAKE

  2. Growing up, my brother was so into wrestling. Back then it was still WWF, but I admit even in his 30s, he and his friends still watch and have gone to a few live shows, too in the past few years. I guess it is a guy thing 😉

  3. I am ahuge fan of wrestling no matter what they say. In fact I think Bret hart is still the greatest athlete in history.

    I am so envious you guys get to watch upclose and live!

  4. I have some family members who are crazy about WWE! They would be so jealous right now!

  5. Wow! Great fun. We used to watch wrestling on the small black and white tv as kids. It’s great fun. Love all the photos!

  6. While I don’t love to watch wrestling, I do appreciate it. It’s all about drama and storytelling. It’s like soap operas for guys.

  7. I’m not a huge fan of wrestling, but I do recognize the athleticism and charisma it takes to pull of the stunts and the intense acting. I’m sure the boys loved it even more than you realize. Boys love wrestling.

  8. You gotta love wrestling. Where else can you see intense physical athletics coupled with high drama. It’s like a sweaty testosterone filled soap opera.

  9. I have never been to a fight like this! I really want to go to a boxing match or maybe some MMA I think it would be a total blast!

  10. I’ve never seen a wresting presentation live, but I’m sure you can get so into it and have fun. Especially knowing that it’s not real!

  11. I grew up in a house where my Dad, brother, uncle and cousins watched wrestling every weekend. This would have been so nostalgic for me.

  12. I’ve never taken my kids to anything like this. I know they would love it. It looks like your boys had a blast. They are all smiles. 🙂

  13. What a fun evening for your boys. It looks like they had a great time!

  14. Sounds like an exciting experience for your boys! Great photos!

  15. Looks like you guys had a ton of fun. Great pics!

  16. wow this sounds super exciting – our boys aren’t into wrestling yet but they are little. Maybe one day we’ll be here!

  17. I haven’t been to one since it was the WWF and Andre the Giant was still alive. Looks like it is still as much fun though!

  18. I have not had a chance to attend an event. Wow so exciting. My son would have a fit to see this.

  19. Wow that looks like fun! I would love to attend a live event.

  20. What a fun experience for your boys. My friend’s husband loves this stuff! He’s been to a lot of events, especially house shows.

  21. Looks like you had fun! I couldn’t take my littles to that – they’d have WWE in our playroom. 🙂

  22. I grew up on wrestling with my cousin and we loved it.. My favorite was GLOW– Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling! I even saw Cyndi Lauper and her dad on that show or maybe it was a different show. So silly.

  23. I can barely watch wrestling on TV much less in person!!!! I am so glad that your boys got to go see it in person since it is something they are obviously interested in.

  24. i used to be so into wwe (wwf when i was a kid) i knew everything going on and i would not miss a show.. I saw it live when Hulk Hogan defeated the Iran Shek! That is so great that your boys liked it so much!

  25. What a great experience. Looks like you had a blast.

  26. Get, I was there that night. Great energy in the crowd! It was one of the best live shows I’ve been to.

  27. I went to one of the Wrestlemanias years ago when it came to Toronto and it was a hoot!

  28. My boys haven’t gotten into this yet. I think they would enjoy going to see it, though!

  29. This is one thing I don’t really let my kids watch.

  30. I’m not a wrestling fan, however I’ve seen this advertised on TV and realize what a big deal it is. Aren’t you the awesome mommy for going! Rock on, Robin!

  31. I Haven’t watched WWE in YEARS but still remember my very first live event. Hulk Hogan and The Ultimate Warrior. I was dressed as a little mini ultimate warrior.

  32. We went to an event on a whim a few years back. The guys in the family thought it was so hilarious! I thought some of the moves were brutal. 😉

  33. I’ve never been to a WWE even in person before.

  34. I went through a phase back in 7th grade where I loved wrestling. I thought The Rock was the greatest, so my older sister and I attended a live show. It was a lot of fun, I’m glad you al had a great time.

  35. I haven’t actually watched this in years, but I know people are crazy for WWE. Also I hear there’s a WWE Divas girl wrestler show or something? That’s kind of fun! Sounds like you had a great time!

  36. I’ve watched WWE on TV a couple of times, though I’ve never been to a live event.

  37. I have never watched it but I have seen UFC and that was fun minus the blood.

  38. My brothers would kill to be at a WWE show!

  39. I have no real desire to hit a WWE show but good for you. I first thought the guy in the first photo was someone from duck dynasty:) I might have gone for that 🙂

  40. I’m not a fan, but one of my best friends is a HUGE fan! What a cool experience for you and your boys!

  41. Oh what fun.. I used to be really into WWE when I was younger but haven’t been into it for a bit. I do think I would still have a blast at one of their shows. They really know how to ‘bring it’ ha!

  42. I know zero percent about it – but looks fun for the kids and fans of it.

    glad you and the boys got to go 🙂

  43. You’re definitely a boy mom. There would be a lot of screaming if I took the EF girls to this match LOL

  44. In my early teens, I loved watching WCW every Monday night. For Christmas when I was about 13, I received tickets to the Atlanta show and had a blast. I was such a tomboy back then!! I still like to watch wrestling every now and then when I have time to catch it on TV.

  45. Wrestling was always something my big brother liked. Looks like fun for the boys in the fam too!

  46. You received an invitation to attend? Might I say that I am mighty envious! We got tickets to the recent event in Philadelphia. It wasn’t Money in the Bank though!! My kids are so into WWE and watching how much they enjoyed it was great. My little guy wore his Cena shirt and his belt. It was really cute!

  47. my boys would SO be into this, what a fun experience!

  48. Wow! That looks like soo much fun!

  49. I haven’t followed wrestling as much as I used to, but I sure love some UFC!

  50. This looks so exciting! Thank you for sharing pictures, it looks like you guys had a lot of fun!

  51. I’m totally lost when it comes to WWE and the likes 😛 Glad you and the boys had so much fun though!

    Ai @ Sakura Haruka

  52. That loos like so much fun! We used to be really into wrestling as a family and went to lots of matches when they would come here to Miami!

  53. Looks like everyone had a ton of fun! What an awesome event.

  54. My son would DIE if I took him! He would love it! His favorite wrestler is Man Kind …. which makes it hard to find anything of him since he is long retired!!

  55. My father in Law loves wrestling. He would love this!

  56. Oh wow! Ashton really likes wrestling! How great that you got to take your kids to it! I’m sure they loved it!

  57. Looks like a fun night!! I have never been to an event like that, I bet it was a ton of fun

  58. It’s been a long time since i’ve watched a wrestling match live.

  59. Looks like you guys and a blast! WWE is not my thing but everyone I know loves it!

  60. I am really surprised to read that your boys knew all about the wrestlers! I don’t think mine could name a single one. Looked like a fun show!

  61. I don’t think I wold enjoy visiting an event like this. Probably would take a book with me to read while the fighting goes on. But I know my son would love this SO much!

  62. It looks like your boys had lots of fun! I know some grown men who would be extremely jealous of them.

  63. Woah this looks like a blast! My son would flip out if he could see this!

  64. What a super fun experience to share with your family. This is something I’ve never done before, but would really want to.

  65. Looks like it was a great time! We’re not big wrestling fanbs, but I lover that it always has a background story!

  66. We’ve never been a WWE family, but it looks like you guys had SO MUCH FUN! Your sons look THRILLED!

  67. So I watched The Wrestler with my son a couple weeks ago, and that guy with the neck injury totally makes me think of it. Is it bad that I don’t want him to return to wrestling because I don’t want his neck to get worse? In any case, as corny as wrestling is, I’m glad it entertains so many people, including your kids!

  68. My mother in law and father in law both used to work for Money Bank! Looks like fun!

  69. I love reading about your fun activities. I know my son would love this. I live vicariously through you 🙂

    • I am with you! Their family has so much fun together, I can;t wait till my kids are a little bigger for more adventures!

  70. I went to a WWF match in Louisville back in the day. It was so very fun!

  71. My husband would be all over this! He has grown up loving the WWE.

  72. I haven’t been to a show since I was a little kid. I definitely want to take my boys one of these days, I think they would have a blast. Loved all of your pictures, looks like ya’ll had a great time!

  73. I have to admit, I am not a huge fan of WWE. You got some great pictures, though!

  74. Oh I’m jealous! We love WWE– so cool that you got to experience that with your boys!

  75. Sounds like there was a nice mix of ages and people in the audience. I’m so glad you all had fun!

  76. Whoa! How awesome is that?!? My hubby and son try to go anytime they are in Chicago. Very cool pictures!

  77. I used to be so into WWE when I was younger, I always wanted to see a match live.

  78. When I was younger I was super into wrestling both the WCW and -what was then – The WWF. Must have been an awesome show.

  79. Love me some WWE! I got to see a live performance several years ago, so much fun 🙂

  80. My husband is a huge fan! Glad you guys had a great time!

  81. We used to go alot. When I say we I mean my mom and dad and brother used to force me to go because my brother went through a WWE phase lol. Sadly I married a wrestling fan as well although he is more into the local indie wrestling so I get stuck in hot sticky sweaty gyms and boys and girls clubs sometimes. You got some good seats! I bet the boys had a great time!

  82. I typically don’t like wrestling, but a live show is much different. I’m sure my husband would have enjoyed watching it!

  83. This seems like a high energy show! What boy wouldn’t love this?!

  84. I don’t like wrestling much, but my FIL enjoys it. Looks like you and the kids had a great time!

  85. Ahhhh! Love this! Isn’t Randy Orton just dreamy? 😉 your event looked amazing. Totally jealous! My sons #1 is Daniel Bryan then Reigns but we’ve yet to see DB! Hopefully one day! Thanks for sharing I’m going to show him:)

  86. I have never really gotten into Professional Wrestling. My hubby always talks about how he watched it with his dad when he was a kid!

  87. I bet that was so much fun. I remember watching those on TV when I was younger. Always so much action! Thanks for the fun post!

  88. Sounds very exciting!! My boys haven’t crossed over into this arena yet, but they would enjoy it!~

  89. You are a really good mom. Not sure I could sit through this kind of a “show!”

  90. We took my brother to a wrestling event back when it was the WWF! IT was a great time. The fans really get into it!

  91. My nephew is soooo into WWE! I think he would think he died and went to heaven if he got to go to a real live show! What a really fun experience for your boys!

  92. I think their performances are so funny. My kids are WWE pros, so I can see them getting into this.

  93. I haven’t attended a show in years! looks like such a great time! Thanks for sharing!

  94. I used to love WWE – its been a while since I watched it though, I should so get back into it – feeling very jealous you got to see it all live in action 🙂 x

  95. Looks like loads of fun if you are a fan. I’d love to see a couple of wrestlers live

  96. I”ve always wanted to go to a WWE event. I need to see when they come near us again.

  97. Another fun place it looks like. I’ve never been to a WW event before.

  98. I saw the PPV since I subscribe to WWE Network and hubby and I watched it Live. I’m a big wrestling fan from growing up with parents who watched it every week. My mom still watches it to this day and would call while it’s showing and give me the run down. 🙂

  99. My husband loves the WWE and I actually bought him tickets to see the show years ago. He went with his father and had a great time.

  100. What a blast! My Husband would totally get a kick out of this!

  101. It looks like you guys had a really great time!

  102. I used to really watching WWF and WWE. It’s like a soap opera for men! This sounds like I would have absolutely loved it! lol! Looks like you guys certainly did!

  103. My husband would be so jealous that you got to attend this! Those all sound like great matches 🙂

  104. I am not a fan of WWE perse but I do think I would enjoy the match if I went to one.

  105. My dad is a HUGE wresting fan! He’d love this show. I sent him to a live show one Christmas and he talked about it FOREVER! LOL!

  106. I am not sure that I have ever watched wrestling before. I am sure this would be awesome for a wrestling fan!

  107. I love watching wrestling but always on television. I am sure watching it live would have been much more fun

  108. That looks like so much fun! 🙂 We love watching WWE

  109. Looks like it was a good time. I used to watch WWE back in the day but don’t anymore. My 20 yoa daughter is a fairly big fan of WWE and she’d be thrilled to attend a PPV event someday.

  110. I can’t say that I’m a fan of wrestling, but my husband is a huge fan! I went to a wrestling event with my husband a few months ago, though. It was quite interesting even though I don’t get into wrestling. 🙂

  111. This is great idea. By bullying is a serious and major problem that we should all work to eliminate.
