This Sunday WWE Money In The Bank takes place, live on the WWE Network. Emulating live from the Scottrade Centre in St. Louis, Missouri, this is a Smackdown Live! exclusive PPV.
Here is a preview for WWE Money In The Bank 2017.
Jinder Mahal VS Randy Orton: WWE Championship
As unlikely as it ever was, Jinder Mahal became WWE Champion at Backlash in May. A moment which shook the WWE universe, Mahal won his first-ever championship in his WWE career. Since then he has been on a roll, growing better each week. Mahal is on his way to becoming the top heel in the company, mark my words.
On the other hand his opponent Randy Orton, is a veteran in this scenario. As the challenger, he shall go into this match with his back against the wall. However we shall see what the Viper is capable of. Will he become a 10-time WWE Champion?
In conclusion I believe that Jinder Mahal shall retain the WWE Championship. His run is only getting started.
Prediction: Jinder Mahal To Defeat Randy Orton To Retain The WWE Championship
Kevin Owens VS AJ Styles VS Shinsuke Nakamura VS Sami Zayn VS Baron Corbin VS Dolph Ziggler: Money In The Bank Ladder Match For A WWE Championship Contract
The match that builds the PPV; The Money In The Bank Ladder Match. Six of Smackdown’s top superstars battle for the entitlement to a WWE Championship opportunity. At this point, I believe that this is as unpredictable, as I can ever recall. This match possesses a very nice balance, which emphasizes the versatility of the Smackdown roster.
While we may see Shinsuke Nakamura take home the briefcase, the likes of Sami Zayn also attains a good chance of being victorious. One has to remember that Smackdown Live! is the land of opportunity and change, if you will. Therefore with this in mind I have narrowed my prediction down.
I personally believe that either Sami Zayn or Baron Corbin shall take home the briefcase. But while I cannot choose two, I am going with Baron Corbin, sorry Sami.
Prediction: Baron Corbin To Win The Money In The Bank
Becky Lynch VS Charlotte VS Carmella VS Natalya VS Tamina: Money In The Bank Ladder Match For A WWE Smackdown Live! Women’s contract
I’m sure you hope you agree with me, but this is awesome! For the first time in WWE history, there shall be a Women’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match. Five of Smackdown’s women shall battle for the chance to earn a WWE Smackdown Live! Women’s Championship match.
Firstly let me just say, I cannot wait for Charlotte’s moonsault off the top of a ladder, I am calling it. Also just in general, I have been looking forward to this match since its announcement. The likes of Charlotte and Becky Lynch have already been Women’s Champion, however I do not believe that rules them out.
Let’s forget the veteran experience in Natalya, one of the best workers within WWE’s women’s division, she can be considered to be a dark horse. In addition to this the same can be said for Tamina, as she also holds veteran experience.
Overall I believe that Smackdown Live! is going to swerve us once more, Carmella is going to win the Money In The Bank, it might be wild but I am going for it.
Prediction: Carmella To The Win The Money In The Bank
The Usos VS The New Day: WWE Smackdown Live! Tag Team Championships
Don’t you dare be sour! Because the New Day are coming for the WWE Smackdown Live! Tag Team Championships. The longest reigning WWE Tag Team Champions in history were drafted to Smackdown, during the WWE Superstar Shake-Up. Now for the first time, they are challenging for the WWE Smackdown Live! Tag Team Championships.
Their opponents The Usos, have excelled ever since winning the title a few months ago, to their credit they have made their heel persona work. In some ways this a renewal of an old rivalry, as the two teams are not strangers to each other.
While I do believe New Day shall eventually win the titles, it shall not be at WWE Money In The Bank. Therefore I am going with The Usos to retain their championships.
Prediction: The Usos To Defeat The New Day To Retain The WWE Smackdown Live! Tag Team Championships
Naomi VS Lana: WWE Smackdown Live! Women’s Championship
Upon Lana’s Smackdown Live! debut, she was granted a WWE Smackdown Live! Women’s Championship match, which is well, interesting. However perhaps some may be overlooking her a bit? She has been working NXT house shows for a while now, so maybe she has more in her locker than we think.
As for Naomi she has been a great champion, as her singles career has truly managed to lift off the ground and get going. One of the best competitors in WWE’s women division, Naomi is a lot of fun to watch. Not to mention her entrance, I know I feel the glow!
Like I have said on multiple occasions, Smackdown Live! is the land of opportunity, so the potential for Lana to win the Smackdown Live! Women’s Championship is not impossible. But for now, I am going with Naomi to retain this Sunday.
Prediction: Naomi To Defeat Lana To Retain The WWE Smackdown Live! Women’s Championship
