For years since I started this blog, I have analysed the Money In The Bank ladder matches. I have gone through each competitor and labelled their chances of winning, using the tags none, unlikely, possible, dark horse and favourite. I don’t think I’m going to tag everyone in the same way this year, but I’m still going to take each man in the match and assess their chances individually. What am I waiting for, let’s get to it! Continue reading Analysing the MitB Ladder Match 2016
I haven’t posted anything for a while, because in a few ways I haven’t really found WWE TV all that exciting recently. But, having watched Payback and this week’s Raw, there were a few sticking points that came to mind. None of them were really big enough to dedicate entire articles to, so I’ve put them all together here.
The Cyclical World Of Rusev
A: It’s one of the more exciting periods in the WWE calendar, it’s Money In The Bank time! This year is historic, since it’s the first time ever the WWE World Heavyweight Championship will be contested in a MitB ladder match! But of course, you already knew that. This can often be the time of year where we see where the future of the company is headed, and this year should be no different. With potential breakout performances from Cesaro, Reigns, and the chance to make a huge impression in the contract match, this could be a huge night! But there are obviously more than two matches on the card, so let’s get on to talking about them all!
M: Since I started watching again regularly is has been my favourite PPV of the lot, purely because I love the concept of the briefcase. It also has at least one ladder match, which is always a good thing. This time around there’s 2 and they couldn’t be more important! With some of the guys who would usually be in the briefcase match being in the WWE Title match, this will open the door for another up and comer to take the spotlight! Those 2 matches are the only thing going for this show I’m afraid. The tag match should put up some fight but with 2 ladder matches of massive importance on the card, of course everything else will suffer. Anyway here we go. Continue reading Money In The Bank 2014 Predictions
And part two is here! This is of course the second of two columns looking forward to the Money In The Bank Ladder matches this Sunday! The first looked at the contract match, and it can be found here. This column is looking forward to the first ever WWE World Heavyweight Championship Money In The Bank ladder match, where the title is actually on the line! There are 8 competitors in this match compared to 7 in the other, so let’s sink out teeth right into it! Continue reading Who Will Win The WWE WHC Money In The Bank Ladder Match 2014
This has become a favourite annual column from me, for one of my favourite times of the wrestling year. I take a look at each of the competitors in a Money In The Bank Ladder Match and discuss their chances of winning. Last year two of my outside bets won the matches, and in 2012 I called the winners (though that column was structured slightly differently as not all the competitors had been announced at that point). This year I’m pretty confident I can call who will win, though an injury at the Smackdown tapings on Tuesday has thrown a bit of a spanner in the works. This column will focus on the contract match, not the title match. We’ll build up to the big prize. But let’s get to it! Continue reading Who will win the Money In The Bank Contract Match 2014
Hello folks, it’s mid July which can only mean one thing……..that’s right Money In The Bank!
This time it’s me Matt that will be your author as Andrew is away on some musical escapades at T in the park. Lucky sod.
Anyway let’s get cracking as we’ve got a big card to get through.
We’ll start with the first match on the kick off. Continue reading MITB 2013 predictions
This is the second of my columns focusing on the Money In The Bank matches this Sunday. The first was my assessment of each competitor in the All-Stars match’s chance of winning. This will follow the same structure, but will focus on the World Heavyweight Championship MitB match. Here we go! Continue reading Who will win the World Heavyweight Championship Money In The Bank Ladder Match?
I’m back! After a short, unscheduled hiatus (for which I apologise) I have returned to the world of wrestling blogging! First things first, best wishes to Jerry Lawler. Here’s hoping he recovers soon and returns to the commentary desk before long! I know there’s a lot of people out there who don’t like the commentary team right now on Raw, but no one wishes this kind of thing to happen to anybody. Also a lot of credit goes to Michael Cole, Bret Hart, John Cena, CM Punk and everyone else who went out and performed on Raw for the way they handled the situation.
But in true WWE style, the show must go on, and their next show is the Night of Champions PPV in just under 23 hours time! There are 7 matches announced, plus a pre-show battle royal. So, without further ado, here we go! Continue reading Night Of Champions 2012 Predictions
It’s nearly here, the Money In The Bank pay-per-view is tomorrow night and it’s one I’m really looking forward to – partially because it’s one I’m watching, and partially because I’ve always been a fan of ladder matches. I ran down who I thought was likely to win a week or two ago, and I will evaluate the 3 additions to the World Title MitB match later in my predictions. There are only 4 announced matches on the card, which makes me hopeful that all 4 will get a good amount of time, even with the expected addition of a squash or divas match.
