Come this Sunday it will be one of the most anticipated PPV’s of the year and I am really looking forward to it. Not to mention it’s on my birthday and a PPV has never been on my birthday before, so it’s definitely a mark out moment for myself I will give you a preview of what will take place at the MITB PPV.
Now there has always been a staple in the MITB PPV which showcases the briefcase ladder match, the wrestler that can retrieve the briefcase will have a guarantee title shot for a year. I will provide you with a preview of all the competitors along with their chances to win the briefcase.
Kofi Kingston/ RVD
They will both only be used for their traditional high spots and as two solid mid card wrestlers, they will both try to excite the crowd throughout the match with their spots. I don’t see either man being able to retrieve the briefcase because it does not make sense for either man.
It is pointless to have him involved in this match because he doesn’t have shot and Swagger will not be able to retrieve the briefcase.
Now Dolph Ziggler has always been a fan favourite and he will be looking to continue his winning ways and his momentum, after a big win on Bad News Barrett last week on SmackDown. Ziggler like he always does will steal the show but unfortunately I can’t envision him grabbing the briefcase.
After 3 weeks ago being betrayed from Seth Rollins and constantly having Rollins interfering in Ambrose matches, so Ambrose will finally be seeking revenge on Rollins. I can envision all throughout the match Ambrose will try to screw Rollins at any time to prevent him from retrieving the briefcase.
Bad News Barrett
Unfortunately it was reported by WWE that on Smackdown Bad News Barrett apparently got a shoulder injured after his match with Dean Ambrose. Therefore come this Sunday his spot could be in jeopardy which is shame because injuries do happen at any time and going into this match he was one of the favourites to win.
Three weeks ago Rollins sent shockwaves to the wrestling industry when he backstabbed The Shield, which was probably one of the biggest heel turns in history because nobody saw it coming.
I like this new direction that Rollins is going and he will go down as one of the best in the future or who knows even a WWE HOF mark my words. He is the perfect choice and most logically to win the match because of his heel turn along with a victory would be a huge payoff.
It will be Layla taking on Summer Rae with Fandango as the special guest referee. This match is impossible to predict because anything can happen but if I had to choose I would pick Summer Rae to win. However I could see it end in a no contest and Fandango just walks out on them and this feud will continue in the future.
Big E Langston will seek revenge against Rusev because Rusev has been on his path of destruction within the WWE. Lana and Rusev always boast about how Russia is a superior country compared to the USA. To be completely honest I could care less about this match Rusev will continue his winning ways and be victorious via The Accolade.
Paige will be looking to defend her divas title against her toughest competition to date since her title reign Naomi. This match will be great and exciting because these women are very talented in the ring. Naomi earned her title shot after she defeated Paige on Main Event with a DDT. Paige will figure out a way to survive and successfully retaining her Divas title, with an assist from Cameron interfering and screwing Naomi out of the title.
I am actually intrigued to witness this tag team match between Goldust and Stardust as they will take on RybAxel. It looks like ever since Goldust found his new tag team partner Stardust aka Cody Rhodes, their chemistry has been unbelievable but they will have their hands full with RybAxel.
RybAxel wanted a rematch because they felt that their first loss to Goldust and Stardust was a fluke. However came this Sunday it won’t matter because once again Goldust and Stardust will pick up the win.
A new heavyweight world champion will be crowned this Sunday at MITB. It was announced weeks ago on RAW that Daniel Bryan would be stripped of the title. I was extremely pleased with this announcement and I thought that Daniel Bryan should have been stripped when he got injured.
Now this will make more the PPV much more intriguing because it’s guaranteed that we will see a new champion. I can’t lie this has been a entertaining gimmick PPV for years because now fans hardly get to see ladder matches so it gives them something to look forward to.
If the best for business and will be very intriguing in what direction WWE goes in order to crown their new heavyweight champion, there are 8 competitors battling to be crowned the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion. I will provide you with a preview of all the participants and who I envision becoming the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion.
Come this Sunday Cena could potentially win his 15th Heavyweight championship which is absolutely crazy to imagine. Love or hate him he is a great worker and Cena will always make the WWE a lot of revenue when it comes to merchandise even if his wrestling abilities are suspect.
Cena has his sights on becoming the new heavyweight champion but Cena was in transition from being involved in an entertaining feud with Bray Wyatt. Now the possibilities of Cena winning the title are very high, unfortunately it makes a lot of sense because there are reports that Brock Lesnar will face the champion at SummerSlam. Therefore that being said I still can’t envision him winning the title, because even though it makes sense there are better candidates to win the title in my opinion.
Ever since 2012 when the Shield debut they made a significant impact as one of the greatest factions of all time which is unbelievable accomplishment. Three weeks ago Seth Rollins did the unthinkable and he turned his back on the shield. Now Roman Reigns is focused on becoming the new WWE World Heavyweight champion.
Even though Roman Reigns is the future of the WWE he has evolved so quickly, which is amazing because he was so raw coming into the company compared to now. I believe that Reigns could potentially win the title but it would be way too fast and he needs a proper build up as champion.
Fans often sleep on Orton because fans believe he is boring as a character which I don’t agree; Orton is seeking revenge ever since he lost his title back at WrestleMania XXX.
From that point forward Randy Orton has had his hands tied with the authority whether it was trying to get revenge on Daniel Bryan. All of a sudden HHH reformed Evolution 2.0 without Ric Flair they tried to put an end to The Shield but they were not successfully.
Now that he is focused on one thing only believe or not he is my pick to win the match because he is flying under the radar, and if he were to win the title it would set up an excellent feud with Seth Rollins down the line if Rollins won the briefcase. Then HHH would have to choose either Orton or Rollins and HHH would choose Rollins instead this would be an excellent way to turn Orton face and have him face Rollins in the future.
Cesaro has made himself a household name in the WWE he is quite a unique wrestler that fans have not seen in years because of his skill sets in the ring. At one point in his brief WWE career he had the longest reign as a US Champion before Dean Ambrose’s streak.
When he aligned himself with Zeb Colter along with Jack Swagger to form The Real Americans at the time, it seemed to be a good idea because I enjoyed the faction and them as a tag team. Therefore that being said he was stuck and he wasn’t going anywhere for close to a year.
Eventually down the line there was tension with Cesaro and Swagger which would lead to their break up as a faction. Cesaro fortunes took a turn for the best when he won the first inaugural Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal at WrestleMaina XXX. The day after on RAW he aligned himself with Paul Heyman and everything for Cesaro looked like it was on the rise for him.
Now I wouldn’t mind seeing him win the title but I don’t believe he is there yet he needs a little more overall seasoning as a wrestler.
Bray Wyatt has literally turned the wrestling industry upside down along with The Wyatt Family which is not a bad thing in my opinion. The Wyatt Family is a unique and refreshing faction that fans have never seen before in wrestling and they have become fan favourites for multiple reasons.
Ever since Bray Wyatt and the Wyatt family debuted back in 2012, they have been extremely dominated and made examples out of most of the WWE roster. Moving forward this Sunday I am tore because I could see Bray Wyatt win the title, I have a feeling it would be special. However his rise to fame has been so quick because he has already had big programs with Daniel Bryan and John Cena so I don’t know where WWE would go from here with him as a champion.
I have never been a fan of his however ever since he came back from his injury Sheamus has significantly improved in the ring in my opinion. He is currently the US champion and he has done an incredible job bringing back prestige to the US title. Sheamus is not currently in any serious storylines he is a main stay in a mid card position. I don’t feel that Sheamus will walk out as champion but he will give a valiant effort.
I found it very intriguing that Kane was added so last minute to this ladder match. I don’t know what his exact role will but he might be an enforcer for the authority I don’t envision him winning the title.
Alberto Del Rio
To be honest I don’t know why ADR is involved in this match because his contract expires soon but he is a very underrated worker. He doesn’t have any chance to win.
