WWE Money In The Bank predictions -6.19.16

19 Jun

I’m hoping for a good event tonight on WWE Network which would be a nice touch in finishing up a great Father’s Day.  Here we go…

Kickoff show
Golden Truth vs. Breezango – Who cares? I’ll go with Golden Truth since they lost the last time.
Dudley Boyz vs. Lucha Dragons – Lucha wins this one, but again, who really cares?

Main card
Dolph Ziggler vs. Baron Corbin – Series tied 1-1.  No way Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal winner Corbin loses the rubber match.

Rusev (U.S. Champion) vs. Titus O’Neill – This is easy. Bulgarian Brute successfully retains the U.S. Title by making the Gator tap out to the Accolade.

Charlotte/Dana Brooke vs. Natalya/Becky Lynch – They’ve been teasing some dissension in the ranks between Charlotte and Dana, so I believe that will come into play and cost the heels the match.  Look for Natalya to get either Charlotte or Dana to tap out to the Sharpshooter, especially since the Women’s title isn’t on the line.

Vaudevillains vs. Enzo Amore/Colin Casady vs. Karl Anderson/Luke Gallows vs. The New Day – Fatal 4 Way for WWE Tag Team Championship
This is a tough one to call.  New Day has held the titles for a long time.  Gallows and Anderson are the new blood and getting a huge push.  I don’t see Vaudevillains or SAWFT taking the belts yet. I’m thinking The Club gets the titles at Battleground or SummerSlam so I’m “banking” on New Day somehow winning the match and retaining the titles with some shenanigans.

John Cena vs. A.J. Styles – A decade in the making. Dream match. Should be great. I’m definitely feeling at least a 3 match series going at least through SummerSlam for these two.  That being the case I’ll be surprised if Styles doesn’t take Game 1. Winner – Styles, clean.

Dean Ambrose vs. Chris Jericho vs. Cesaro vs. Kevin Owens vs. Alberto Del Rio vs. Sami Zayn – Money In The Bank Ladder Match
Zayn – NO
Del Rio – NO
Cesaro – NO
Jericho – NO, although he’s never one this match which was his brainchild. Would be great to see Y2J with the briefcase with the brand split coming next month.
Owens – I could definitely see KO grabbing the briefcase and being that “next in line” guy, but because of the other match on the card.
Ambrose – Unfortunately one of the guys I like least on the roster is probably going to win this match which builds the storyline of him being able to cash in on either of his former Shield brethren.

Seth Rollins vs. Roman Reigns (WWE World Heavyweight Champion) – Rollins is gunning for the title he never lost.  Reigns isn’t a good guy, or a bad guy, he’s just The Guy.  Yeah, right. There’s no way they’re going to make Rollins look bad in huge return, but I just don’t think he’s getting the belt back tonight.  Reigns is going to retain the title via countout or disqualification with Rollins getting the actual victory.  Then Ambrose will likely come out to attempt a cash in of Money In The Bank.  Before the bell rings he’ll get taken out by either Reigns or Rollins and be left laying in the ring, but still with the briefcase.

Projected Greene Family Fantasy WWE league points:
Josh – 5 (R-Truth), 5 (Kalisto), 5 (Corbin), 5 (Becky Lynch), Styles 5 – 20
Adam – 5 (Natalya), 8 (New Day retaining), 20 (Ambrose winning MITB), 10 (Reigns retaining) – 43
Dad – 8 (Rusev retaining), 5 (Rollins) – 13
