WWE Money In The Bank Predictions and Preview

Well it’s that time a year again – time for WWE Money In The Bank PPV.

As we come closer and closer to MITB, let’s go over the history of the MITB ladder match in a brief timeline format:

2005 – The first MIB ladder match was held at Wrestlemania 21 in 2005, and was won by Edge.

2006 – In 2006, he cashed vs John Cena at the January PPV New Year’s Revolution.  The next MITB Ladder match was at Wrestlemania 22 and was won by Mr. PPV Rob Van Dam, who cashed in at ECW One Night Stand 2 vs John Cena winning the WWE title, but had a really short run as champion after being busted for pot.

2007 – In 2007, Mr. Kennedy won the MITB, but Edge somehow had a match and beat him on Raw I believe, and cashed-in on Smackdown vs WHC the Undertaker.

2008 & 2009 – CM Punk won both MITB matches that year and cashed in both times to win the WHC.  In 09 after turning heel, he beat Jeff Hardy for the WHC.

2010 – In 2010, Jack Swagger the All-american won the MITB and cashed-in on Chris Jericho on Smackdown to win the WHC.  Then later that same year in July, the Miz won the MITB in the very first MITB pay-per-view and defeated Randy Orton that same year to win the WWE title.

2011 – In 2011, MITB winners also were Daniel Bryan and Alberto Del Rio who both cashed in and won the titles.

2012 – Dolph Ziggler and John Cena won their MITB matches.  While Dolph Ziggler used his briefcase to win the WHC.  John Cena became the first MITB winner to lose his title match, falling to CM Punk.

So, this Sunday it’s the 2013 MITB ppv.  The matches are on the pre show.

Tag Team title – the Shield (Rollins and Reigns) vs the USO’s.

WWE Championship – John Cena vs Mark Henry

CM Punk vs. Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton vs. Sheamus vs. Christian vs. Rob Van Dam for the MITB WWE Championship Briefcase in a ladder match

WHC – Alberto del Rio vs Dolph Ziggler

MITB match – Wade Barrett vs. Cody Rhodes vs. Damien Sandow vs. Dean Ambrose vs. Fandango vs. Jack Swagger vs. Antonio Cesaro for the WHC MITB Briefcase

Ryback vs Jericho

Divas Chamiponship – AJ Lee vs Kaitlyn

Intercontinental title – Curtis Axel vs The Miz.

My Predictions:

  • Mark Henry to go over. Do I think he will?  No, but I can’t pick Cena.
  • Daniel Bryan to win his MITB match and
  • I really believe in Dean Ambrose and think he will win his MITB match
  • AJ Lee will win and retain her title
  • Curtis Axel will win and retain
  • Ryback will win vs Y2J
  • The Shield will win and retain the tag titles
  • Alberto Del Rio will win and retain (I see him losing it to Dolph Ziggler at Summerslam next month)

So there are my picks everyone.  Enjoy WWE MITB PPV this Sunday.
