In a late addition to the 2017 Money in the Bank card, Breezango defeated The Ascension at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis.
WWE Universe showed Fandango rolling up Viktor for the victory:

JUST LIKE THAT, @WWEFandango BOOKS #TheAscension as the #FashionPolice close another case with a win! #MITB @MmmGorgeous https://t.co/X4ZKBghT4g
The match came about after The Ascension showed themselves to be the culprits of an attack on Tyler Breeze earlier in the week:
Wrestling Inc thought the reveal fell somewhat flat:
And it’s the Ascension. Swing and a miss. #MITB
This would’ve been a great time to have The Authors of Pain make their main roster debut or usher American Alpha back into the fold.
Not only did The Ascension feel like an underwhelming rival for Breezango, it couldn’t even leave Money in the Bank victorious, giving essentially no payoff to the “Who attacked Breezango?” storyline.
On one hand, it’s good to see Breezango getting a pay-per-view win. Not only are Tyler Breeze and Fandango an entertaining duo, they’re also capable in-ring workers. They’d make great champions in the event they captured the SmackDown Live tag team titles.
On the other hand, beating The Ascension does little to raise Breezango’s profile—such is The Ascension’s current state in WWE—ultimately changing very little in the tag team division.
