WWE Money in the Bank Preview and Picks


WWE Money in the BankHello everyone again from Minnesota. Once again, WWE has another pay-per-view this Sunday. In ways, I’m excited for it, but again, I’m not. I’m looking forward to at least the Raw Money in the Bank match, but not having two Money in the Bank matches on the same card, and not having the match at WrestleMania anymore. But let’s get into the main matches for the card.

WWE Championship inside a Steel Cage

Sheamus (champion) versus John Cena

I’m kind of excited for this match, and most of you know that I could care less about John Cena or his matches. But I’ll have to admit, this build-up for this match is kind of confusing. Cena has been continuing his feud with the NXT dudes, and Sheamus was leading the heel group, teaming up with the NXT dudes. Then this past Monday, Sheamus came and helped Cena. Why?

[adinserter block=”1″]I think the only reason why is because Sheamus wants Cena to be “100%” to beat him himself inside the 15-foot high Steel Cage this Sunday. But we all know John Cena’s Superman, so he’ll be fine, right? Another thing why I hate Cena and his character, and Creative these days. No one can be Superman, not even Cena.

Prediction: Sheamus, because it’s time to have the title off of Cena and time to push new WWE Champions.

World Heavyweight Championship

Rey Mysterio (champion) versus Jack Swagger

To be completely honest, I find this match to be boring. I feel like Mysterio’s pay for breaking the Undertaker’s face and not going on his month vacation with his family to Hawaii was given the World Heavyweight Championship. But on the other side of the coin, Creative didn’t do well with the build of Jack Swagger months before winning the title and even holding the title. So this rematch, I find, to be would be boring.

Prediciton: Fans get the short end of the stick, but Swagger, because he deserves a better push.

Raw Money in the Bank

Evan Bourne, Ted DiBiase, John Morrision, the Miz, Randy Orton, Mark Henry, Edge, and Chris Jericho

This match consists of Randy Orton, Evan Bourne, John Morrison, Ted DiBiase, the Miz, Mark Henry, Edge, and Chris Jericho. This mixture I like in this match because it’s three main event guys with the rest of the eight mid-carders to lower carders. Having eight guys I think is over kill, but I feel that WWE wanted to put the main eventers on the card to give them a pay day and to help sell the pay-per-view.

I feel like having eight men in a match is hard to tell of the build-up. Too many men with too many strings coming in to tie the knot know as the storyline for the match. But I do think this match would outshine the SmackDown Money in the Bank match because I feel like there’s more main eventers in this match to help carry it out.

Prediction: Chris Jericho, because he’s the absolute best in the world at what he does today, and if memory serves me correct, it was Chris Jericho that came up with the whole Money in the Bank match idea (walk down memory lane!) and he never one the Money in the Bank match yet. Chris Jericho has had a hot start so far this year, this would help end the year hot as well.

[adinserter block=”2″]SmackDown Money in the Bank

Big Show, Kane, Matt Hardy, Christian, Kofi Kingston, Cody Rhodes, Drew McIntyre, and Dolph Ziggler

Two former World Champions, two “ladder match specialist,” a guy from Ghana, a guy from Scotland, a self-professing “Dashing” dude, and a wanna-be of Mr. Perfect. How much more can I say about this match? It would be cool seeing Big Show throwing around turkey in the match (meaning: his Turkey Punch [Knock-Out Punch]), so I’m excited for that. Other than that, I simply don’t care.

Prediction: Drew McIntyre, because he’s McMahon’s “chosen one” and he was slated to win the Money in the Bank at WrestleMania, and didn’t.

That’s the preview and predictions for the card! This is Eric Darsie from Minnesota, until next time J.
