WWE Money in the Bank 2011 Matches & Participants

WWE Money in the Bank 2011 Matches & ParticipantsThe WWE Money in the Bank 2011 card is coming together and on paper, it looks like a real winner. Two Money in the Bank matches and two WWE world championship matches headline the summer replacement to the WWE Bash series.

The remainder of this blog will contain spoilers for the next couple of WWE RAW and Friday Night SmackDown shows. If you wish to avoid spoilers, stop reading now. You have been warned!

If you haven’t read the RAW or SmackDown spoilers, you would think that the WWE is a few weeks away from a show with no matches set. However, the next few weeks of tapings will bring the card together and when it is all said and done, this has the potential to be a damn great show.

John Cena vs. CM Punk will headline the RAW brand with a match for the WWE championship. Unless you have cut yourself off from the wrestling world over the last few days, you know that this isn’t your typical WWE title match. Punk is leaving the WWE and his contract expires the day after this show. The story here is that Punk is threatening to leave the WWE as world champion. Vince McMahon has warned Cena that if Punk leaves the building with the title that he will be fired.

Randy Orton vs. Christian will carry the load for the SmackDown brand in their fourth WWE world heavyweight title match, third on pay per view. Like RAW, SmackDown has dressed this match up a bit with a couple of stipulations of their own. The DQ rule will be waived and Orton will lose his title if he is disqualified. This is an old stipulation that Jim Crockett used to promote all of the time for Ric Flair‘s NWA title matches during his peak. Coming off of the WWE Capitol Punishment controversy, Christian will also be awarded an immediate rematch due to a “bad referee decision.” That could lead to a really interesting finish.

What would WWE Money in the Bank be without Money in the Bank matches? Well, it would be a pretty dull show (although this year would be the exception with the two title matches). RAW and SmackDown will each have a Money in the Bank match with six wrestlers competing for a WWE championship title shot. Wrestlers will have to grab a briefcase to win the match, thus earning a title shot at the WWE championship of their brand anytime over the course of a year.

Rey Mysterio vs. Alberto Del Rio vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Alex Riley vs. R-Truth vs. The Miz vs. Evan Bourne vs. Jack Swagger will compete in the RAW Money in the Bank Match. The poster features John Morrison so chances are pretty good here that Morrison would have been in the match and probably won. This is a real strong lineup if you ask me when it comes to a MITB match. All of these guys are athletic, fairly young, and have a real good shot at tearing the house down in Chicago.

What the SmackDown side lacks in star power will be made up with youth and athleticism. Daniel Bryan vs. Heath Slater vs. Kane vs. Justin Gabriel vs. Cody Rhodes vs. Sheamus vs. Sin Cara vs. Wade Barrett will compete to earn a title shot at the WWE world heavyweight champion. On paper, it looks like more of a Heat or ECW MITB match than something you’d expect from a bigger brand. However, there is a ton of youth here and these guys will rarely have an opportunity like they will have at MITB to steal a show. One of these guys could certainly walk away from this match with a lot more notoriety than he had going in.

Randy Orton’s favorite Diva, Kelly Kelly will also be defending her WWE Divas championship against Brie Bella. With Dolph Ziggler and Mark Henry off the card, I would expect another match to either be announced or pop up unannounced on the broadcast.

WWE Money in the Bank 2011 takes place July 17 from the Allstate Arena in Chicago, IL.
