Re: Menís Money in the Bank Ladder Match
The problem with these sorts of matches is that WWE plans the match before they have the winner in mind. Who is really deserving of being a main eventer here? Orton is up there, but does anyone really want the briefcase on him again, with the knowledge that his title win is coming? I think people have had enough of that.
Andrade might be ready in a year, but it's a gamble.
MITB is a worn-out gimmick at this point. You need main eventers or people that are just waiting to explode into the main event scene to make it work. I guess you could do a "grabbing the dream" story with Mustafa Ali or Ricochet, where people try to get the briefcase off them, but they eventually cash in ahead of time and win the big one in a great moment, even if the reign isn't long. Eh. Braun winning at least allows him to potentially cash in on Kevin Owens or something, which could be a way to get Owens back into babyface position (but why the flip-flopping and the short reign for Owens?). And is Heel Braun vs. Babyface Owens really going to sell tickets? Balor could win and cash in on AJ Styles and enter the Raw main event scene, but that is also uninspiring.
The match is fucked.
