Will Edge win the Universal Championship at WWE Money in the Bank?

The biggest match heading into this weekend is Roman Reigns’ gigantic Universal Title defense against Edge. After pinning the Rated-R Superstar at WrestleMania, Reigns has been on an absolute riot. He’s beaten Cesaro, Rey Mysterio and Daniel Bryan after WrestleMania and has never looked so dominant.

However, the return of Edge three weeks ago sent shivers down Reigns’ spine. The winner of the 2021 Royal Rumble walked out and attacked the Tribal Chief and has taken out members of his Bloodline as well. Their match at Money in the Bank is going to be a banger, but Edge could walk out of the Dickies Center as the new WWE Universal Champion.

Will the Queen become a ten-time women’s champion at Money in the Bank?

Charlotte Flair has been chasing her tenth women’s championship reign for over two years. She last held championship gold in 2020, but the NXT Championship wasn’t the most optimum prize for the Queen. However, that win made Rhea Ripley one of her biggest rivals.

Their Hell in a Cell clash ended in disqualification after Ripley tossed the cover of the announcer’s desk in Flair’s face. That proved Ripley wasn’t afraid to fight dirty, and she could play Flair’s game just as good as her. But will that be enough to take Ripley over the line? Yes, if there’s anyone walking out of Money in the Bank as women’s champion, it’s the Nightmare.

Will we see ‘KofiSlam’ after he beats Bobby Lashley?

Kofi Kingston’s win over Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania was one of the most heartwarming moments in WrestleMania history. It kickstarted a terrific title reign, albeit one that ended disappointingly at the hands of Brock Lesnar. But at WWE Money in the Bank, Kofi can right that wrong by beating Bobby Lashley for the WWE Title.

Lashley has been more than a formidable champion, but he’s been in a bit of slump lately. After losing to Xavier Woods on Raw, Lashley left Raw, only to return and make a defining change. No more bullsh*t Lashley is brilliant, and he’s the one to lead Raw into SummerSlam. Kofi is great, but ‘KofiSlam’ will have to wait.

AJ Styles and Omos to trounce the Viking Raiders at WWE Money in the Bank

The Phenomenal One and his humongous pal have been doing well as the Raw Tag Team Champions. Unfortunately, the rest of the division hasn’t stepped up and the best tag team right now is Randy Orton and Matt Riddle. However, Styles, Omos and the Viking Raiders can reverse the division’s fortune at WWE Money in the Bank.

Erik and Ivar are phenomenal talents and were the cornerstones of the NXT tag team division. They would make excellent tag champs, but Styles and Omos need to cement themselves as the true MVPs of the tag division. One can expect Omos and Styles to take out both the Raiders to record third title defense.

Liv Morgan= future Women’s Champion?

The women’s Money in the Bank ladder match is a star-studded one. Four out of the seven participants confirmed in this match are former women’s champions. Although the eighth woman in this match is not officially confirmed, Liv Morgan is the safest bet as the winner of the match.

Having beaten Zelina Vega and Carmella, both of whom are part of the ladder match (Carmella isn’t anymore), Morgan has proved she can hang with the best in the business. She has the makings of a future women’s champion and a win at Money in the Bank is a step in the right direction.

Will Drew McIntyre become Mr. Money in the Bank?

The men’s Money in the Bank match has the potential to be the best one of all time. With talent like Ricochet, Riddle, Drew McIntyre and Seth Rollins, Sunday’s main event could steal the show. However, the right winner is crucial in sending the fans home happy.

Although the likes of Ricochet, Riddle, Big E or Shinsuke Nakamura would be fine picks, the most obvious candidate to win the ladder match is Drew McIntyre. After a short slump post his loss to Bobby Lashley at Hell in a Cell, McIntyre needs a defining win to straighten his course. Winning the MITB briefcase could be a step in the right direction, although another McIntyre vs Lashley match would p*ss off fans.
