WWE Money In The Bank 2022
Thoughts & Predictions
July 1, 2022
Tomorrow night on the WWE Network and Peacock, it’s WWE Money In The Bank. The Premium Live Event will be coming from the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Are you ready for a few predictions?
WWE Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair vs. Carmella.
This one is way too easy to predict. As much as I love me some Carmella, she is not going to be walking out with a title at this event. Bianca is on fire and being pushed strongly and there is no way in hell she’s dropping the title here. Carmella will give her a fight and we might even see some interference by Zelina Vega in an attempt to help her former partner, but alas, to no avail. Bianca retains.
Winner and STILL WWE RAW Women’s Champion: Bianca Belair
WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey vs. Natalya.
Why is this even a match? Why am I even bothering with a prediction? Why is the sky blue? Why does the fire burn? This one is too obvious and too easy. Natalya has as much chance of winning here as Tammy Sytch has of getting another induction into the WWE Hall of Fame. Ronda wins and retains.
Winner and STILL WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion: Ronda Rousey
Women’s MITB Ladder Match: Asuka vs. Alexa Bliss vs. Lacey Evans vs. Liv Morgan vs. Raquel Rodriguez vs. Shotzi vs. Becky Lynch.
This one is really up in the air and could go to almost anyone involved. Becky is the obvious choice, but she’s just a little too obvious if you ask me. Asuka has won it before and really doesn’t need the MITB contract to demand a title shot. I’d love to see Alexa win, but I think she’s supposed to be a face now and the whole MITB gimmick usually works better with a heel. Let’s go with Lacey Evans. Evans versus Bianca would be fun to see, right?
Winner and New Ms. MITB: Lacey Evans
Men’s MITB Ladder Match: Seth Rollins vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Sheamus vs. Omos vs. Sami Zayn vs. Riddle vs. TBA.
I wonder who the player TBA will be? I don’t see anyone from The Judgement Day represented, nor do I see Mustafa Ali anywhere so for a random guess, I’ll say that either Finn Balor or Mustafa will be the final participant. But that being said, they won’t win. Neither will Drew, Sheamus, or Omos. So that leaves Riddle, Seth, or Sami. Seth is, much like Becky in the women’s match, a bit too obvious for my tastes so let’s take him out. We have Riddle or Sami. I would love to see Sami Zayn with the contract. He’s the type of character that would make a great MITB contract holder because he has no loyalty to anyone and is capable of anything, plus watching him try to explain to The Bloodline why he’s loyal to Roman while holding that contract would make for some great TV. Riddle is so over though and winning here would be the only way to get around that no title shots against Roman stipulation that he’s currently under. This one is hard for me. I think I’m going for the better entertainment with this one.
Winner and NEW Mr. Money In The Bank: Sami Zayn
Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos vs. The Street Profits – Stipulation to be announced.
We’ll get the stipulation tonight on Smackdown, but I really don’t think it should matter. Look for Jimmy & Jey to retain their titles.
Winners and STILL WWE Undisputed Tag Team Champions: The Usos
WWE United States Champion Theory vs. Bobby Lashley.
Lashley is ready for another big push and should not lose, but Theory, he is really getting a big push now as well and I can’t see him taking a loss, especially with the potential for a match with Cena at SummerSlam. I think we’ll see Lashley dominate most of the match, but look for some shenanigans on Theory’s part, maybe a count-out as he flees the ring or even a blatant disqualification to get the match thrown out. Regardless of the final decision, look for Theory to keep his title.
Winner By DQ: Bobby Lashley (Theory retains the U.S. Title)
