WWE’s Money in the Bank PPV this Sunday is stacked like a Wrestlemania card with some dream match-ups that have been long anticipated. Roman Reigns will defend the WWE World Heavyweight Championship against Seth Rollins, who is looking to legitimize his WWE title reign by defeating the man who never officially lost the WWE title in the ring. It’s a match we should have seen at WWE’s Survivor Series last year, but it’ll finally happen this Sunday night.
As if that wasn’t enough, we’re going to see the first match between AJ Styles and John Cena. After nearly fifteen years of questioning, both men are in WWE, and both men are finally going to get to settle the argument about who is the better man of the past fifteen years. Cena vs. Styles is about a lot more than titles. It’s about WWE and wrestling immortality.
Also on the main card, The New Day will defend the WWE World Tag Team Championship against Enzo and Cass, The Vaudevillains, and The Club’s Karl Anderson and Luke Gallows in a Fatal Four Way. Of course, there is also the Money in the Bank Ladder match, which is always a show stealer and a major event for the next year of WWE programming.
According to an article from Wrestlezone.com, WWE has added two tag team matches to the Money in the Bank pre-show. On Sunday, we’ll see The Golden Truth versus the team of Tyler Breeze and Fandango. Also on WWE’s pre-show will be The Lucha Dragons vs. The Dudley Boyz. It’s not confirmed why WWE officials decided to add these matches, but they’ve replaced Baron Corbin vs. Dolph Ziggler and Apollo Crews vs. Sheamus on WWE’s kickoff show for Money in the Bank.
However, Corbin vs. Ziggler and Crews vs. Sheamus haven’t been scrapped. They’ve been added to the main card of the event and will get better spots and exposure to show the WWE Universe what they can do. Frankly, the new tag team matches WWE has booked for the pre-show are much more appropriate than the other matches would have been that are attempting to get young talents over into the WWE Universe.
Money in the Bank has become a very big opportunity for Crews to have his first WWE PPV match on the main card, not on the kickoff show. He’s facing Sheamus, who is a former WWE Champion, Money in the Bank winner, Royal Rumble winner, and much more. Apollo Crews being able to get a clean win over Sheamus would be a huge boost for him, but even a great showing against someone as experienced and accomplished as Sheamus is a huge test, especially on the main card.
The changes WWE has made to the Money in the Bank card make sense to give the young talents some more exposure with the WWE Universe as well as get eight more men in the ring to entertain the fans and set the tone properly for what could be the best PPV of the year if the expectations meet with reality on Sunday night at WWE’s Money in the Bank.
