One more spot. We are less than a month away from Money In The Bank and the ladder matches are going to get some serious focus. The matches are the signatures of the event and this year will again feature the men’s and women’s version with eight entrants each. That should make for some big matches, but we need eight people per match. Now another one of those spots has been filled.
This week on Monday Night Raw, Drew McIntyre defeated Riddle and AJ Styles in a triple threat match to earn a spot in the men’s Money In The Bank ladder match. Riddle was replacing Randy Orton, who missed the show due to unknown reasons. The match consisted of wrestlers who had been defeated in their qualifying matches last week. McIntyre joins Riddle, Ricochet and John Morrison from Monday Night Raw and Big E. from SmackDown.
It was a heck of a fight. Check out how the match went and how the participants got here:
Opinion: This isn’t the biggest surprise as McIntyre has been in the main event scene for a long time now. It would make sense to have him get back in the title picture in a hurry but I’m not sure how likely him winning really is. McIntyre needs to do something else for a bit, just for the sake of freshening him up a bit. Spinning him off from the ladder match into something else would work just fine.
What do you think of McIntyre? Who will win the ladder match? Let us know in the comments below.
