This Sunday is the Money In The Bank PPV and it’s being billed as the greatest MITB PPV in history for good reason because from top to bottom every match has significance to it. I will even go one step further it will go down as a candidate for the PPV of the year, and it will beat this WrestleMania in my opinion, I always do I will provide my thoughts and a preview for every match on the card.
The Golden Truth vs. Breezango (Kickoff Match)
I don’t know why this match is even taking place now I know that they had a brief set of matches both on RAW and SmackDown. I don’t even believe this match should be taking place on this PPV in the first place. The Golden Truth will pick up the win because they need the win, even though it wouldn’t matter but they need to get momentum just to take them seriously as a new tag team.
The Lucha Dragons vs. The Dudley Boyz Kickoff Match
This is another match that doesn’t make any sense I am just guessing that the WWE wanted to do something with these tag teams. They just didn’t have any spots because of the stacked fatal four way tag team match for the WWE Tag Team Championships. The Dudley Boyz need to obviously win and go over taking a loss doesn’t make any sense here.
Apollo Crews vs. Sheamus
This is going to be an interesting match the feud started when Sheamus got jealous of the new era and all the new talent, currently that is being brought into the company. Therefore Sheamus took it into his own hands and he assaulted Crews, backstage and then Crews returned the favour next week with own assault on Sheamus. I expect this to be a great match, between quality workers in the ring and Crews to over easy in this match.
Baron Corbin vs. Dolph Ziggler
I am actually surprised that this feud is still going on to be honest because there is nothing left to prove in my opinion. Baron Corbin was victorious in his first encounter live on PPV and then both traded wins back and forth. Then Dolph Ziggler got the last laugh a couple weeks ago, when the two had a rematch on RAW Ziggler hit Corbin with a low blow to send a message. Leading up to this match Ziggler has been scouting Corbin in his matches, it is difficult to predict because this match can go either way, but I leaning towards Baron Corbin and hopefully this spells the end for this feud.
WWE Women’s Champion Charlotte and Dana Brooke vs. Natalya and Becky Lynch
I don’t mind this match at all but I just wished that WWE Women’s Championship was included instead. This feud started with a series of singles matches involving all four women on RAW or SmackDown. That being said I expect a great match with Natalya and Becky Lynch getting the win, and there will be a seed planted between Dana Brooke and Charlotte it will be the start of their demise together.
Titus O’Neil vs. Rusev
A couple of weeks after servicing his 60 day suspension and he got involved in Rusev business, after Rusev constantly dissed the country of the USA and Titus wasn’t having any of it. Then whether on RAW or SmackDown these two would attack each other after their matches. This is an easy match to predict Rusev will retain his US Championship.
Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson vs. Enzo Amore & Big Cass vs. The Vaudevillains against The New Day
This will be a crazy fatal four way match for the New Day look to defend their tag team titles. However they will have their hands full with their toughest test to date all of the teams in the match have a legit shot of winning the gold. I envision The Club will continue to thrive dominate and in the process become the new WWE Tag Team Champions.
Money in the Bank Ladder Match for a shot at the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match contract
Now traditionally in the Money In The Bank ladder match there are seven participants but this year it only has six, which leads me to believe a surprise entrant will be involved in the match such as Bray Wyatt or Randy Orton. Now leading up to the MITB PPV there were qualifying matches on RAW and the winners would get a spot and take part in the match.
The participants in the match are Sami Zayn, Dean Ambrose, Chris Jericho, Alberto Del Rio, Kevin Owens and Cesaro. Now when the participants were announced I immediately thought that Kevin Owens, would be the perfect choice. Due to the fact that his promos would be unbelievable on a nightly basis, in addition to being one of the best heels in the company he would be money no pun intended.
However the WWE has done a fantastic job planting doubts in the minds of the fans about who will win this match. My verdict I am still going with Kevin Owens to win but I wouldn’t be surprised if Dean Ambrose shocked the world and retrieved the Money In The Bank briefcase.
John Cena vs. AJ Styles
The dream match that nobody thought would happen inside a WWE ring that has been 15 years in the making. The Phenomenal AJ Styles will take on the face of the WWE John Cena I believe that AJ Styles has been utilized perfectly, in WWE despite the hate that he constantly receives from the fans I don’t know why.
This is John Cena’s return from his shoulder injury therefore he will look to put on a show. I must say that I have to give respect to both men for their excellent mic work in addition I also like the fact that both didn’t beat each other up, at the contract signing as that is usually what happens. I believe this is AJ Styles best mic work of his entire career in my opinion and that is saying something also I prefer him as a heel.
As far as a verdict for this match is concerned it’s difficult because it’s a tossup and it could go either way. I would be shocked if Cena won clean and I can’t see AJ Styles pinning Cena either. Therefore I envision Cena winning via DQ in order to continue this feud, because I have a feeling we will see a lot of interference and The Club will be involved.
WWE World Heavyweight Championship
Seth Rollins vs. Roman Reigns
The long awaited return of Seth Rollins to the ring since his freaky knee injury, the fact what I love about this feud so far, is that there has been limited physical contact between each. This even adds more significance to this match because the fans are that much invested that much more. This match should be unbelievable and that’s no surprise because Seth Rollins, makes anybody he is the ring look like a million dollars in my opinion. I envision Roman Reigns either wins clear or via interference to retain his WWE World Heavyweight Championship.
