The complete lineup consists of Ricochet, John Morrison, Riddle, Drew McIntyre, Big E, Kevin Owens, King Shinsuke Nakamura, and Seth Rollins. Out of these people, only Seth Rollins have won the briefcase back in 2014.

This year, the line-up is really interesting and each individual has their own thing going on. For Ricochet the opportunity itself is a huge push, John Morrison and Riddle are doing something separately from The Miz, and Randy Orton respectively.

Drew McIntyre, Big E, and Kevin Owens are finally doing something other than chasing titles. Apart from these, King Nakamura and Rollins have their own intricate rivalries with Baron Corbin and Cesaro, respectively.

Now, who will win the match? Out of the past 24 winners, 20 have cashed in the contract to win world titles, hence the pressure is really high even after the win. However, there is one contestant who has a stellar chance this year.

Here’s why Big E is ready to become the next Mr. Money in the Bank

Last year, WWE broke up The New Day amidst huge fan backlash. Reports said WWE will push Big E to be the next big thing, and he will go up after the Universal Champion on SmackDown.

However, that never came to reality. Although E became the Intercontinental Champion, he has been chasing that for a long time now. Big E is still a great performer and entertainer, hence, WWE won’t let him go stagnant.

Hence, it would be a great way to push Big E as the next opponent of Roman Reigns. He can keep the contract and cash it in at the right time. Other people like Ricochet, Riddle, and Nakamura will get plenty of opportunities in the future.

Apart from E, Rollins will compete with Edge in the future. Kevin Owens is busy with Sami Zayn. Drew McIntyre can not challenge Bobby Lashley. Since Goldberg will be back on RAW to challenge the title, contestants from RAW are unlikely to win it.

Apart from this, Big E is the fresh face fans want to see WWE with. His victory will definitely put the show on a higher tone, especially with the fans back in the arena.
