Honestly this could potentially be the greatest MITB show WWE has done yet in recent years because of the stacked card and a lot of great matches to look forward for!
You got the MITB Ladder Match itself which is filled with great wrestlers,Seth Rollins will be making his in-ring return after that nasty injury for the World Title facing against Roman Reigns,and of course the "Dream Match" between John Cena and AJ Styles will finally occur!
Below are my predictions for each matches on this PPV. Feel free to leave yours too in the comments.
Let's get through it shall we?
NOTE: This post was edited after WWE moved Corbin vs Ziggler & Crews vs Sheamus at the Main Card and added Breezango vs Golden Truth & Lucha Dragons vs Dudley Boyz at the Pre-Show.
Pre-Show Match #1:
Lucha Dragons vs Dudley Boyz
I didn't even know these two tag-teams are even feuding! But whatever.
If I have to pick a winner then I'd have to go with the Lucha Dragons, they are young and The Dudley Boyz, being the great veterans that they are don't mind putting over young talents.
Pre-Show Match #2:
Golden Truth vs Breezango
It's the rivalry the no one gives a flying fuck about! Golden Truth vs Breezango!
The only positive thing about this whole rivalry is that Tyler Breeze became somewhat relevant again. Even though I think Golden Truth are probably gonna win, I will still pick Breezango.
WWE are just really trying to imitate Booker T & Goldust with this whole Golden Truth ordeal. They say it's what the "WWE Universe wants" but I don't think anybody really asked for it in the first place!
Dolph Ziggler vs Baron Corbin
First off we got Dolph Ziggler vs Baron Corbin for like what... the 100TH TIME?!
At first I didn't mind this rivalry at all because you know Corbin is an up and comer in the WWE and having a few matches with Dolph will certainly get him up to the top but as the months go by it seemed like he is not allowed to feud with anybody else but Dolph Ziggler!
Yes these two can always deliver decent to good matches but I'm just tired of this rivalry already! Hopefully at MITB we will finally see the conclusion of this rivalry with Corbin winning.
Apollo Crews vs Sheamus
I'm glad the newcomer Crews is having a rivalry with someone like Sheamus. I know Sheamus isn't the greatest wrestler but he isn't bad and is a former World Champion himself!
Anyways this feud started when Sheamus attacked Crews in the back while he was having an interview, Sheamus stated that he hates the "new era of wrestlers" and all that B.S.
My pick is Apollo Crews and I'm sure most of you do as well, gotta put over the young talent alright fella?
Rusev (c) vs Titus O'Neil
Up next we got the United States Championship match, Rusev defending it against Titus O'Neil.
As much as I want Titus to actually win this match I think Rusev will still go over in the end. Seems like they are pushing Rusev again as an unstoppable heel and that's the way it should be really.
If Titus wins then I won't mind it for sure! He deserves to win the belt but I don't think this is the right time to do it yet. Rusev will probably have another long reign with the US Championship probably until SummerSlam or even until WrestleMania, we shall have to wait and see.
If Titus ever wins though, they just might pull a Zack Ryder on us again and he will immediately lose the title on the next RAW, which I won't like one bit.
Women's Tag-Team Match:
Charlotte & Dana Brooke vs Natalya & Becky Lynch
Next is a pointless women's tag-team match between the Women's Champion Charlotte and with her new ally Dana Brooke taking on Natalya & Becky Lynch.
I don't really care too much about this feud going on with these women, also I would've rather had a Women's Title match between Charlotte & Becky instead.
My picks to win are Charlotte & Dana, obviously because Charlotte is the Women's Champion after all! Speaking of the belt, I think Sasha Banks might return in MITB after this match and go after Charlotte & her title!
We all know that's the main women's feud were all looking forward for anyway, Charlotte vs Sasha Banks.
Fatal 4 Way Tag-Team Match - WWE Tag-Team Championships:
New Day (c) vs The Club vs Enzo & Cass vs Vaudevillains
For the next match we got this huge Fatal 4 Way Tag-Team Match for the WWE Tag-Team Championships! The New Day will be defending their titles against The Club,Enzo & Cass,and The Vaudevillains.
Now I've seen a lot of people picking Gallows & Anderson to win this match, and if they do then damn I won't mind that at all! But I think The New Day will still successfully defend their titles at MITB.
Then at SummerSlam we get The Club finally winning the tag titles there! As for Enzo & Cass and The Vaudevillains, I'm sure they'll be able to win the belts down the road, as long as they're in a good position of course.
Money in the Bank Ladder Match:
Ambrose vs Y2J vs Owens vs Zayn vs Cesaro vs Del Rio
Next up we got the Money in the Bank Ladder match consisting of all the great wrestlers WWE has right now!
I'm actually happy with anybody winning this match except for Y2J or Del Rio, with all due respect to those guys I don't think they need to win the briefcase, they are already solidified veterans.
It really only boils down to Ambrose & Owens and if I have to pick one, I have to go with Kevin Owens! Just like GoodMicWork said in his own predictions, most wrestlers that have held the briefcase are heels and for this instance Owens fits to be Mr. Money in the Bank perfectly!
I'm sure down the line Ambrose will have another shot at the title too but currently, out of all the wrestlers in this match it is Kevin Owens that is the most deserving to win! I'm sure Sami Zayn & Cesaro's careers won't be affected too when they lose in this match for sure.
On another note though, why are there only 6 men in the MITB this year? They were endorsing it as 7 men at first but they were just like, well fuck that, let's just go with 6 and forget that we ever endorsed a 7th man!
I thought Bray Wyatt was gonna return and become the 7th man for this match but I guess he hasn't recovered well enough yet.
Also as much as I want Bray or somebody else to return and become the 7th man in this match and make a surprise entry in the match itself, I think it would be "unfair" to the 6 other guys who have to earn their spot for the match, that's just me thinking in a realistic/kayfabe standpoint.
WWE World Heavyweight Championship:
Roman Reigns (c) vs Seth Rollins
Woah!!!! Before you destroy me with your keyboards as to why I picked Roman Reigns as the winner of this match, here me out first!
Look most of us want Seth Rollins to become WWE Champion again, I understand that but you don't have to rush things way too quickly. I bet Seth is gonna win back the belt anyway but MITB is not the time.
Also don't worry about Reigns "burying" Seth Rollins because that isn't gonna happen, they are going to have one helluva match together, that's for sure!
Reigns will successfully defend his title on this PPV, but NOT on SummerSlam! So yes, let Reigns hold the belt for now but Rollins will still be able to get the best of him at SummerSlam for the WWE World Title!
John Cena vs AJ Styles
Last but certainly not the least we got the "Dream Match" the "WrestleMania-Caliber Match" or whatever more things they described it, it's John Cena taking on AJ Styles for the very first time!
Now to be honest, I actually don't care about the result because I'm more looking forward for the match itself! I never thought this would happen in the first place, two of the most famous wrestlers of this era facing each other! It's like Hogan vs Rock, but not really?
Anyway the promo wars between these two the past episodes of RAW were just great, especially when AJ spoke about what we've all been saying about John Cena. This is just going to be an amazing feud and I don't know why can't they wait for this to happen at WrestleMania?!
If I have to pick a winner, it has to be AJ Styles. I'm sure Cena will win eventually, because he is John Freaking Cena but let Styles get the first win on this feud.
Thanks For Reading.
