The booking of this Sunday’s Money In The Bank event has been very fluid. Vince McMahon and the WWE creative team are no strangers to last-minute booking decisions, or even changes on the fly for that matter. There have been countless times WWE fans have witnessed a major swerve, and not of the Punk’d-eque, WWE Network reality show variety. We’ve reported more backstage Money In The Bank finishing plans than most pay-per-views in recent memory.
WWE has already made several changes to Sunday’s card, adding two new matches to the kickoff show (Breezango vs Golden Truth and The Dudley Boyz vs The Lucha Dragons), and sliding the Baron Corbin-Dolph Ziggler and Sheamus-Apollo Crews matches to the main show. But, while the outcomes of those matches should have little impact on the main event scene, it’s the top three bouts at Money In The Bank that has everyone buzzing and speculating on what happens in the aftermath.
Nothing has changed in regard to the Money In The Bank main event, with Roman Reigns all but assured to retain his WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Though it’s not all that shocking to expect that result, it’s a little surprising that Seth Rollins doesn’t have a whole lot of support behind him to reclaim what he never truly lost. However, whatever the outcome, it should be expected that this program continues through at least one more pay-per-view beyond Money In The Bank.
Cageside Seats is now reporting that the new favorite to win the Money in the Bank briefcase is Dean Ambrose. A major wild card will be whether the WWE actually pulls the trigger on adding a mystery seventh entrant. It’s been Owens and Ambrose distancing themselves from Cesaro, Sami Zayn, Chris Jericho, and Alberto Del Rio for a while, but it’s easy to examine why Dean has reemerged.
Fans have been clamoring for a triple threat match featuring the former members of The Shield ever since the faction broke up 2 years ago. That dream encounter drew closer to reality this past week when Ambrose, Reigns and Rollins were all in the same ring for a compelling Ambrose Asylum segment on RAW. And now it appears that putting that match together sooner rather than later has gained enough steam to the point that Ambrose could further set the wheels in motion by winning the Money in the Bank briefcase.
