Bleacher Report Writers’ Thoughts and Predictions
As usual, the writing team here at Bleacher Report has been sharing predictions leading up to Sunday’s event.
Other Money in the Bank Thoughts
Money in the Bank is one of WWE’s most successful PPV concepts because the winners of the titular ladder matches can change the title picture whenever they want.
This year’s event will feature the usual men’s MITB bout, but we will also get the first women’s MITB match in WWE history.
Unfortunately for Naomi, the women’s title contest will likely be outshined by the ladder match, but at least the entire women’s division is being used instead of just two or three competitors.
Mahal has come into his own as WWE champion in recent weeks, and his rematch against Orton will be a big test of his capabilities.
One has to wonder if we will see either one of the Superstars who wins the coveted briefcases choose to cash in the same night or possibly Tuesday during SmackDown.
Even with the addition of The Hype Bros vs. The Colons, six matches is still light for a PPV, so we could get another bout added at the last minute to fill time. SmackDown has plenty of Superstars who could use the exposure.
