Participants: Damien Sandow, Tyson Kidd, Christian, Santino Marella, Tensai, Cody Rhodes, Dolph Ziggler, Sin Cara
Now this is more like it.
A bunch of mid-card talent sprinkled in with a couple of former World Champions duelling it out for the briefcase.
A lot of these guys have come up quite quickly so it will be hard to see them winning it. No offence Sandow and Kidd, although Sandow has been a great addition to the roster and it is nice to see Kidd come back post-Hart Dynasty.
It's always a MITB match when the Intercontinental Champion is involved so Christian has to be in the mix, plus the US Champ Santino.
Christian is finally being used in the right way. Ever since Edge's unfortunate retirement, Christian has been given the ball and he's run with it. An epic rivalry with Randy Orton and keeping his heat through injury has served Captain Charisma well.
Tensai will continue to be dominant but he won't win this match. He could use a bit more time before he gets a World Title put on him. Whether or not he has past WWE experience and was a World Champion in Japan, he's a relatively new/returning face to the company and if pushed right, he'll get that World Title the same way Mark Henry did last year.
Rhodes is a good pick for this contest. He doesn't have the Intercontinental Title. He is just about ready to be a main-event-level star and he has done everything right for himself. He's gotten over with the crowd as a heavy heel and his work in the ring is second to none. Of course, look who is father is.
Ziggler is in about the same boat. He has gotten plenty of title matches recently and we all know it is just a matter of time before he gets a good title run.
Sin Cara is getting back from injury and with all of his previous problems, WWE is keeping a watch for him. It'll be exciting to have him in the match. He will add some high flying to the foray, but that's all.
Overall, Rhodes or Ziggler makes the most sense to win this match. They both have heel heat and are inches away from getting into the World Title picture on a more consistent basis.
