Money in the Bank has been cashed-in nineteen times in WWE history. One woman and fifteen men have been successful and become a World Champion. Whoever wins the briefcases this year will have an eighty-four percent chance of doing the same.
After Raw and SmackDown Live this week, the Men’s and Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Matches have been set and the competitors have been chosen. With this match being one of the most unpredictable of the year, it’s hard to predict who will walk out of Chicago with the briefcase. However, WWE officials may have made their decision.
According to a report from DirtySheets.com, The Miz is the current frontrunner to win the Money in the Bank contract for the second time in his career. A lot of people will be pleased if that plan comes to fruition, especially with him on SmackDown Live. It seems WWE officials are putting the briefcase on Miz to push not just one great feud, but two.
Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz is still expected to be a major feud. It’s likely their rivalry will be rekindled for Summerslam and WWE officials want to make Miz as strong a heel as possible. The two men already have a lot of history. Their promo work should be great and the match should follow suit. How their feud ends will depend on Bryan’s contract negotiations with the company, but Miz will move onto bigger things no matter what.
“The Awesome One” knows how it feels to successfully cash-in Money in the Bank:
After the feud with Daniel Bryan ends, “The A-Lister” is expected to cash-in on AJ Styles and begin a rivalry with him over the WWE Championship. Unless something changes, WWE officials have huge plans for The Miz this summer. He’s been patient and earned his way back into the WWE Title hunt and the WWE Universe will be thrilled to see it.
In your opinion, who should win the Money in the Banks contracts this year?
