Money in the Bank is almost here and in an ever changing world this year’s Money in the Bank looks set to make WWE history as the men and women of WWE prepare to compete in the first ever MITB mashup held inside and on top of the WWE headquarters.
With so much at stake for all competitors, six female superstars in the shape of Nia Jax, Asuka, Shayna Baszler, Carmella, Dana Brooke and Lacey Evans all throw their name into the hat looking to become the 2020 Miss Money in the Bank.
Elsewhere WWE’s Role Model Bayley puts her SmackDown Women’s Championship on the line against rival Tamina who has had the champ’s number on more than one occasion these last few weeks. Will Tamina manage to dethrone Bayley and finally accomplish her dream of Champion in WWE? It’s time for our PPV predictions:
Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match: Asuka Vs Carmella Vs Dana Brooke Vs Lacey Evans Vs Nia Jax Vs Shayna Baszler
Elle: Well this year’s Money in the Bank will certainly go down in history for better or worse and if I’m honest I’m not quite sure where my excitement level is seeing as the men and women’s MITB match will happen simultaneously. I’m hoping that the women get their fair time to shine and aren’t completely overshadowed by the men, especially with the likes of Rey Mysterio vying for the high flying moments which are bound to happen on the roof. Originally when Shayna earned her spot in the match I thought for sure she would win but given that she hasn’t really done much in the last few weeks I wouldn’t be surprised to see her side-lined for a feud with Asuka with one of the other women pulling out a victory. I really wouldn’t be surprised to see Lacey pick up a win here purely because she’s been on a constant rise ever since being drafted to SmackDown and there is no doubt Evans could utilize the MITB briefcase to its best. Prediction: Lacey Evans
Adam(TheInsanityInc): Honestly my expectations for this match are low, especially now that the women’s match will run alongside the men’s match in a likely cinematic match. Plus, no one woman has been pushed as being a favourite so it’s hard to say if a Smackdown or a Raw Superstar will win. That being said, I feel there’s more chance of a Raw talent winning perhaps to set up the potential loss of the Raw Women’s Championship by Becky Lynch. So in that sense, it makes sense to give the briefcase to someone who will ruthlessly use it. Prediction: Shayna Baszler
Smackdown Women’s Championship: Bayley Vs Tamina
Elle: I’ve been quite the fan of Tamina over the years and to see her finally get the spotlight she deserves is such a damn good feeling. This whole situation just goes to prove that none of us really know how good the underutilized talent is until WWE gives them a chance to try something new. I say embrace the unknown and give Tamina a chance to do the one thing she has always wanted in WWE, give her a feel-good moment and please god don’t let someone cash on her in the same night if she does win! Do I think Tamina WILL WIN? Probably not but anything is possible right now in the world so let’s not try to imagine any other outcome. COME THROUGHHH TAMINA!! Prediction: Tamina
Adam: Tamina has certainly made the most of this opportunity have come from nowhere since Mania and shined both on TV and on social media. Sadly, Bayley has been on such a strong tear as the Role Model that I don’t see her losing the title any time soon. We just need to see how and if Sasha Banks gets involved in all of this. Prediction: Bayley
