Money in the Bank 2018 : Predictions

 

 

 

  • The Bludgeon Brothers (c) vs. The Good Brothers (For the Smackdown Tag Team Championship) – KICKOFF SHOW: What is WWE doing with their tag divisions? I get that not every superstar can always be featured, but the tag division should be more important than it is. My pick: The Bludgeon Brothers
  • Daniel Bryan vs. Big Cass: Ugh. What a waste of Daniel Bryan, but at least they are using him and hopefully Big Cass is learning everything he can from DB. My pick: Daniel Bryan
  • Nia Jax (c) vs. Ronda Rousey (For the Raw Women’s Championship): Well, I feel it’s too early for Ronda Rousey to be put in this match. I also think it will be bad for wrestling in general if someone who has only been training for maybe a year has the Women’s Championship instead of the women who has been doing this for most of their lives. Also, who’s going to talk for her if she wins? Rousey is horrible on the mic. Granted, her match at Mania was spectacular, and she looked great in the ring, but she was with the best of the best. It’s just not time for her…yet. My pick: Natalya. I believe that Nattie will win MITB and then cash in and put Rousey in the sharp shooter. This will lead to a feud between the so called “friends”.
  • Carmella (c) vs. Asuka (For the Smackdown Women’s Championship): Obviously this match isn’t going to end clean. Carmella will do some type of heel thing to retain the title. She will probably get herself counted out. My pick: Auska via count out or DQ
  • Roman Reigns vs. Jinder Mahal: Sometimes I just hate WWE. Who actually thought this was going to get Reigns cheered. Probably Vince, and only Vince. I’m calling SIX superman punches, SEVEN fist strikes, THREE samoan drops, and THREE spears will be the only moves that Roman Reigns does during this match. His move set is seriously the WORST. Also, Reigns will probably kick out of the Khallas THREE times. My pick: Roman Reigns. (If this match goes on last I expect people to throw shit into the ring)
  • Bobby Lashley vs. Sami Zayn: Boring feud. My pick: Bobby Lashley. Zayn is going to take a beating and make Lashley look strong.
  • Seth Rollins (c) vs. Elias (For the Intercontinental Championship):  Elias has really come into his character. I have been a fan since the Drifter days, and then El Vagabando was genius. I do think that Elias would make a great IC Champ. He’s a great mid card talent that could have a feud with almost everyone. Rollins is doing a great job at making the IC Championship relevant again, but his star power should be used for bigger and better things. My pick: Elias, by cheating.
  • AJ Styles (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura (Last Man Standing Match for the WWE Championship): This feud has been a slow, and somewhat frustrating build. Everyone expected a 5 star match at Mania, but that didn’t happen. The following matches have each grown in greatness, and I expect this one will be the last in the series, and therefor a show stealing match. My pick: Shinsuke Nakamura
  • Lana, Natalya, Alexa Bliss, Charlotte, Ember Moon, Becky Lynch, Naomi, and Sasha Banks (Money in the Bank match): Let’s start with who I don’t want: Lana, Alexa, Charlotte, Ember, & Sasha. Who I’d love to win: Becky Lynch. My storyline for her, however, would be that she got injured in the process of winning the briefcase, so much so that she is out of action and written off TV for months. The announcers only address this at the beginning, the Women’s Champ also celebrates this fact, but that is the last time it’s talked about. Then months down the line Becky’s music hits, huge POP, cashes in, and once again becomes Women’s Champion. But this is WWE and that’s not going to happen. My pick: Natalya
  • Samoa Joe, Kevin Owens, Bobby Roode, Braun Strowman, The Miz, Rusev, Finn Balor, and one member of The New Day (Money in the Bank match): This match is the hardest for me to pick. I’d love Braun to win, only for how much fun Braun teasing casing in would be, but I doubt that he will. Also, a RAW superstar winning doesn’t quite work if the Champion only shows up a few times a year.  My pick: Samoa Joe
