WWE fans are second guessing the booking for Money in the Bank. The Money in the Bank match seemed so obvious yet it was an upset win by Sheamus that has fans asking questions.
[adinserter block=”1″]Sheamus pulled off the upset on Sunday and won MITB. Most presumed it would be Roman Reigns winning Money in the Bank and subsequently going on to win the WWE title as soon as later that night. That didn’t happen and now we have a MITB scenario that will shake up the foundation of the WWE.
The booking seemed obvious going into the summer. Reigns wins Money in the Bank, Rollins keeps the title, and Reigns becomes the next in line to hold the championship and unseat Rollins. Scratch that! Here is where things get real interesting now that Sheamus is holding the briefcase.
What happens next? Brock Lesnar is back, Rollins still has the title, and Reigns looks like he’ll be busy with Bray Wyatt this summer. How does Sheamus fit into this scenario? There are a lot of rumors about a possible Rollins vs. Triple H SummerSlam match with Rollins turning babyface. However, that just doesn’t make a lot of sense right now. Would Sheamus be the new heir apparent as picked by the Authority?
There is certainly history between the Authority and Sheamus. Sheamus and Triple H feuded back in 2010. Even with that said, the choice of Sheamus as a “chosen one” makes very little sense. I also highly doubt that Sheamus will be turning babyface anytime soon. Sheamus cashing in could set the wheels in motion for a Rollins turn, but that just doesn’t make sense.
It would seem to me that there is a middle man in here somewhere. Someone is going to come in, beat Seth Rollins and lose to Sheamus. Who could that guy be? By process of elimination that would probably be Brock Lesnar. Brock does business and shouldn’t have a problem putting Sheamus over. Quite frankly I think a Sheamus vs. Lesnar match and feud has some intrigue. I don’t see any other way out of this scenario.
[adinserter block=”2″]When all is said and done I think the WWE made the right move by putting Sheamus over at MITB. His win shakes everything up, adding a level of uncertainty to the current roster that hasn’t been there in months. How dull would it have been if Reigns won? I am not saying he didn’t deserve it, but the next few months would be as predictable as it gets. Not so much with Sheamus holding the briefcase.
Like him or not, Sheamus’ win does bring some excitement and suspense back to the WWE. For that, I think we should all get a little excited about the unknown his victory will bring to the entire WWE this summer.
