It may not be one of the biggest pay per views that the WWE puts on, but the Money in the Bank match is one of the most important. The Money in the Bank contract is a pretty much guarantee that you will eventually become the next WWE World Heavyweight Champion within the next year. The contract let’s you challenge the current champion at anytime regardless of the situation. This means that when the champion is weak, the Money in the Bank contract holder can cash in their contract and try to pin them to become the new champion. In my opinion, this year’s match is a set up for the Summer Slam pay per view in August.
Let’s take a look at the matches during this Sunday’s Money in the Bank pay per view and make some predictions. This list is from Wikipedia and does not reflect the actual line up of matches.
R-Truth vs. King Barrett – This is a free pre-show match and it has no real consequence. R-Truth has been getting some momentum lately and I think that a win over King Barrett is plausible, but it won’t happen. King Barrett will win.
John Cena vs. Kevin Owens – At the Elimination Chamber pay per view, these two men had one of the best matches I had every seen. I’m not a John Cena fan, but I feel like they are going to stretch this out to three matches. Kevin Owens will win and fight John Cena to end their story line at Summer Slam.
Dolph Ziggler vs. Neville vs. Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Sheamus vs. Kane – This is the actual Money in the Bank match the pay per view is named after. There may be six members in the match, but you’re going to want to only focus on two of them. Roman Reigns and Kane will be the ones who will be after each other while the others just fight to amuse the crowd. Roman Reigns will win and use the Money in the Bank contract at Summer Slam.
Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose – This will be a close match, but Rollins will win and continue the story line that intertwines Ambrose and the Money in the Bank contract winner Roman Reigns until Summerslam.
The New Day vs. The Primetime Players – I don’t know why The Primetime Players went away for a while, but they are a powerful and funny tag team. No one like The New Day and it’s time for them to lose their championship. The Primetime Players will win this match.
Ryback vs. Big Show – The big guy Ryback has been champion for a few weeks now, far too early to see him lose it. On Monday Night Raw this week you saw him pick up The Big Show, which will be what he does when he wins the match.
Nikki Bella vs. Paige – Nikki Bella has been the champion for a long time now, but I think that when Brie tries to help out Paige will counter. Paige will end up winning by pinning the wrong Bella Twin and the referee won’t know, because they tried to switch like at Elimination Chamber.
