Some more hours to bear through and we finally get to witness another amazing PPV, Money in the Bank. It is supposed to be great, why not? We have Reigns facing off against Mahal, Rollins putting his IC title on the line against Elias, Styles defending the WWE Championship against Nakamura in a Last Man Standing match. Money in the Bank is surely going to be a hit, but before watching the actual show, here’s a last moment prediction for all the Matches.
● The Bludgeon Brothers v Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson (SmackDown Tag Team Championship)
This match, is quite a sudden match. No one really thought after the transfer of Gallows and Anderson to SmackDown, they will compete for the tag titles. But, the duo proved it wrong. After, they won the #1 contender’s match Gallows and Anderson look strong. The match is going to be a bit greasy, we might expect gore scenes. But, I think the Bludgeon Brothers will have the upper hand.
○ Prediction: The Bludgeon Brothers retains.
● Bobby Lashley v Sami Zayn
In this modern era, it’s quite undisputable that this match has an exciting build up. To Zayn’s humorous personal attacks on Lashley to his cheap tricks. Everything, seems to work here for this scenario. Lashley will go on the attack ffrom the start and as usual, Zayn will play his little mind games, distract the referee and go for cheap shots, whenever he can. I expect WWE to carry on with this feud for quite a well and the audience has no distaste for this as well.
○ Prediction: Sami Zayn defeats Bobby Lashley
● Seth Rollins v Elias (WWE Intercontinental Championship)
This match will be a classic one. Elias is a great person to watch perform in the squared circle while Rollins is the man to look out for. Not a great build to this match, but WWE sure has some future plans alongside this match. Dean Ambrose may return and turn heel by attacking Rollins after his victory and then we expect a Rollins and Ambrose feud for the IC title or maybe Rollins loses to Elias in an epic match, so, he can go on to dethrone the Universal Champion Brock. There are quite a many scenarios.
But, this match will be top notch and from all the situations surrounding it, I guess Rollins El retain.
○ Prediction: Seth Rollins retains the Intercontinental Championship.
● Carmella v Asuka (SmackDown Women’s Championship)
Supposed to be a classic encounter. Fans are very much eager to see Asuka compete in a big match after her loss to Charlotte at WrestleMania. The company hasn’t been giving Asuka the spotlight she used to get. Now, the main question is what will happen tonight? Asuka may win, may not. But, I intercept Asuka’s win will be by disqualification. She might even lose tonight. Because, I think the company is more set to portray Carmella as the heel Champion she is. It is putting a great impact on the show. So, this night won’t go the way Asuka would want.
○ Prediction: Carmella retains the SmackDown Women’s Championship.
● Big Cass v Daniel Bryan
This feud is a very boring one, none is influenced. I think, to put Bryan after his long awaited return in a feud like this would be a complete torture to Bryan and his fans. I think the this rivalry should end immediately so, Bryan can do much better things. Like, challenging for the WWE Championship or even the United States Championship. Bryan clearly has his numbers on Cass.
○ Prediction: Daniel Bryan deeats Big Cass.
● Roman Reigns v Jinder Mahal
Everyone knows, this match is just made, so that people can cheer Reigns, so that he can be made the face of the company. Last week RAW the WWE Universe experienced a decent cheer for the “Big Dog” after quite a long time. So, it seems that this would be an unsanctioned match, with the results depending on the crowd. If the crowd cheers the win is guranteed to Reigns and if not, Jinder gets the win. This match will even affect Seth’s future endeavors. But, I think Reigns will get this done easy.
○ Prediction: Roman Reigns defeats Jinder Mahal.
● Nia Jax v Ronda Rousey (RAW Women’s Championship)
This a no way out situation that the WWE has created. It would be really better if none wins, though that is possible, I think of something else. If Jax is supposed to conquer Rousey, it will degrade Rousey’s bad ass character as she will be handed her first loss in a singkes competition. On the other hand, if Rousey wins, she gets to the top, way too easy, surely the company will be blank when it comes to raising a career building story for the “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey.
○ Prediction: Ronda Rousey is the new RAW Women’s Champion.
● Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match
This match will be stunning. After the women’s revolution, which happened few years ago, the company has been putting up some classic women’s battle inside the squared circle. Hell in a Cell Matches, Elimination Chambers and other amazing battles.
This match will surely be amazing only if James Ellsworth doesn’t come inside the picture. Yes, he’s rumoured to return to WWE and should we consider the return tonight, it is most likely he will play a part in this match or maybe even hand Carmella’s title but I attacking Asuka to give her the win by DQ. Besides that, it is very tough to predict who will take home the Brief Case but from what it seems, I picture Banks.
○ Prediction: Sasha Banks wins the Mrs. Money in the Bank.
● Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match :
I just don’t think, there is an answer for this match. It is inevitable that the “Monster among Men” will finish the competition alone, but will the be able to climb the ladder and grab the briefcase? Or, Bálor has the factor in him to do it? It is a big question and only time will tell, what WWE has actually booked. I think the Mr. Money in the Bank will go to the Blue House.
○ Prediction: The Miz wins the Mr. Money in the Bank.
● AJ Styles v Shinsuke Nakamura (WWE Championship)
Finally, the end is here with the Styles and Nakamura feud. After a double count-out at the GRR and a no contest at Backlash, Nakamura is once again challenging Styles for the Championship. After Nakamura’s clear loss to Styles at WrestleMania 34, Nakamura adopted to the low blow to continue his feud with Styles. It also resulted in a series of mind games and lots of chaotic events.
Nakamura and Styles yet to create the classic they are capable of, after shat we witnessed back in NJPW. After some really low quality matches at the PPV’s before, this one will make the others more relevant. I think, Styles is confident enough to defeat the King of Strong Style.
○ Prediction: AJ Styles retains the WWE Championship.
