Sami has to win this if WWE has even one brain cell amongst the entire creative team, and that includes the old man too! Sami Zayn is on such an upswing right now, capitalize for once.

Re: Menís Money in the Bank Ladder Match

So I think after the go home shows the picture is pretty clear. Drew and Corbin will be taken out in some big spot by Braun. Ricochet isnt going to be world champion, and as good as Sami has been recently, does anyone really think they're making him world champion? Orton? You would think not, and Balor I think has settled into his role as workrate IC guy.

So that leaves Andrade and Ali. FOX requested Andrade be on their network, his English is getting better, and he has the backing of Charlotte. So I mean, yeah. Ali was supposed to get the Kofi push anyway, and it wouldn't shock me if he won and cashed and took the title to Saudi Arabia.

If I had to put a percentage on it, Id say:

Andrade 70 %
Ali 25%
Drew 5 % ( maybe he finds a way to overcome Braun.)

If they somehow do go with Sami I would shit my pants. What incredible storytelling it would be if Sami wins MITB, KO beats Kofi, and Sami cashes on KO that night to take the belt. I mean it won't happen, but thats juicy stuff.

You would think that Braun has to interfere. I mean the story writes itself since he got screwed by 3 guys. But, I can't tell you how many times I've seen situations where it's clear a guy will or should interfere but they don't and just save it for Raw the next night. So don't be surprised if Braun doesn't show up at all.

So with that in mind, Drew and Andrade are still my top picks.

But if Andrade does win, I want him beating Finn for that IC title first to hold the MITB case and the IC title before getting the top belt.

Re: Menís Money in the Bank Ladder Match

I love the way Sami defeats Braun. Three years ago he beat him by surviving the 10-minute time limit and now Drew and Corbin helped him keep Braun down during the pin

I want to see Sami or Andrade winning this.

Re: Menís Money in the Bank Ladder Match

Sami or Andrade winning would be laughable, so would Ali or Ricochet. McIntyre is the only one they've invested a lot into in the past year so he is the most logical choice. You could make the argument for Corbin as well, but he's won it before and it would be a horrible choice to have him win it again so I doubt he has a chance. Balor has more chance than the first four, but I don't think he'll win it. Orton is the dark horse in this match in my opinion, no one would expect it but given he's the only guy in the match with any resemblance of star power and given how much he's been in the world title picture in the past, I could see it. If Kofi retains against Kevin Owens I could easily see a Orton/Kofi program starting and taking history from their feud in 2009.

Regardless, this is undoubtedly the worst lineup in MITB history and no matter who wins I won't be watching it.

Re: Menís Money in the Bank Ladder Match

I was leaning towards andrade, but this latest "learn English pal" story that's going around about him makes me think it's gonna be Corbin (ugh...!). Here's hoping I'm wrong..

Orton doesn't need MITB for that to happen.

I think this lineup is fantastic. I would be fine with any of Andrade, Sami or Drew winning. Ricochet and Ali will be great to watch.

The year Ziggler won it the lineup was far far worse.

That hasn't stopped WWE in the past.

Every MITB match needs bland spot monkeys. Kofi used to fill that role, but now he's WWE Champion while ratings are at a record low.

Nah, I was big Ziggler and Christian fan. Cody Rhodes was doing good work at the time too. Sandow was a good character. Santino and Tensai while crap, at least had characters. This match is full of bland nobodies and that's on WWE for not giving anyone a defined character anymore. They just expect you to care about a guy who does flips just because he's athletic. The likes of Andrade are talented in the ring, but WWE gives no reason to care about them from a character point of view and all the 50/50 booking in WWE today gets them nowhere. I started watching wrestling and grew to love it because of the characters and storylines, but in present WWE there are so few characters and the booking is trash. 80% of the roster now is bland workrate guys with no personality. I'm not invested in anyone in this match and that is shocking because there is usually one guy every year who I want to win it.

Re: Menís Money in the Bank Ladder Match

Sami winning, and then perhaps cashing in on his "buddy" KO, would make sense. And be poetic after KO betrayed him first, and betrayed Kofi as well.

Andrade winning would be cool, but them having him pin Finn again makes me think that they're probably going to do a IC Title feud between them instead.

Drew McIntyre is obviously the safe bet to win this match. Possibly with a Money in the Bank cash in at Summerslam. Although I could see him beating Rollins clean and turning babyface and feuding with heel Strowman.
