Don't know about the general opinion, but I find the whole MITB concept has been done to absolute death at this point.

WWE need to retire it for a while, and bring in something a bit different, but gets them the same result. After all, it's really just a way to name a #1 Contender. There are a thousand ways to get to the same point, without having the same gimmick match at a set time of the year, every year, and then having the winners do the same tired "tease what title they're going for" and then "surprise cash in after the champion just won a long PPV match".

Don't get me wrong, it's a great concept and I have enjoyed several of the MITB outings over the years ... but it's just tired now.

This might be a great time to bring back a King Of The Ring PPV ... or maybe even - bare with me here - (shock of all shocks) something NEW?

I´m not a big fan of MITB being a ppv on it´s own. But I think it served it´s purpose as a way to get a multi-man ladder match at WM

MITB to me is the 4th biggest PPV of the year now, replacing Survivor Series.

I don't see the issue in having it. They still do Royal Rumble, Elimination Chamber, HIAC, gauntlet matches, battle royals, etc. every year. Why not something that they can make last throughout the year if they wanted to? Especially at a time like now when they are stuck in the PC with no audience.

Theirs a lot more tourneys and such now to keep peoples interest until things go back to normal. So MITB is probably needed.

I can't feel the concept anymore,it should battle of brand after traditional tag team at Survivor Series and Royal Rumble, sure this concept return again but I feel every participant must do preliminary match to earn their spot,not just say I want to going in, plus they not doing the aftermath (Correct me if I was wrong) for the winner ,like Benoit who want Edge put the briefcase on the line or another Kennedy incident.

The problem isn't the MITB match, the problem is the gimmick PPVs like MITB, HIAC, TLC. It destroys the novelty of it. These matches should only occur when there is an important meaning to them in the storyline.

To the general public it still sells anyway whether you like it or not but for me personally I still love the idea of X wrestler regardless of whether he/she is already well established as a Top player or someone who's promising but never had a previous opportunity to shine banking in unexpectedly on whoever the current champion is it creates drama and sometimes the suspense really leaves you guessing.

Keep it.

Totally Agree with this statement for me it’s
1. Mania
2. Rumble
3. Survivor Series
4. MITB

I think it’s stays, gets a lot of interest and can build a new superstar if done right edge, Rollins etc

I still like MITB and i look forward to it every year especially now that the women have their own match which i think is pretty cool. I also like that it can help a mid-card superstar by giving them an opportunity at a championship.

It's definitely overstayed it's welcome.

It sort of doesn't work now in an era where pretty much everyone can be champion.

I haven’t watched properly for a while. Do they now have 4 money in the bank matches? as in raw, smackdkwn, men and women, or is it just one mens and one women’s match?

I like the Match itself ! it doesn't need to be it's own PPV the match should return to WrestleMania Where it belongs !

The only issue i have with it is the predictability of someone winning the title. People got to cash in and fail more often i think. I wouldnt mind if Black or Corbin failed.
