WWE Money in the Bank 2012: Matches Destined to Flop

Justin WeltonAnalyst IIJuly 14, 2012


The WWE has produced many flops at recent pay-per-views. Money in the Bank 2012 won't be any different, unfortunately.

Here are three matches that will be a total flop. 


Kofi Kingston & R-Truth vs. Hunico & Camacho (pre-show match on YouTube)

There is a reason why this match is on the pre-show—it won't be any good. I love to watch tag team action in wrestling, but the division has been weak for so long.

People don't care about the tag team division just like people don't care about the Intercontinental Championship.

Why should I care about this match? This will, obviously, be a match that you forget by the end of the night. 


WWE Championship MITB ladder match: John Cena vs. Chris Jericho vs. Big Show vs. Kane

I can stand watching John Cena perform in the ring, but generally I'm not impressed. Obviously he's the face of the business, but I don't get overly excited to watch him fight in the ring.

Even with three other former champions in a Money in the Bank match. 

Typically I prefer watching athletic superstars who can use the ladder in a plethora of ways instead of wrestlers like Kane and Big Show. 

That's why the other MITB match will be much more enjoyable to watch whereas this one is destined to under perform.


World Heavyweight Championship Match: Sheamus vs. Alberto Del Rio 

This match simply does nothing for me. Sheamus has been a champion for a while, but I don't like him holding the belt. 

Alberto Del Rio has some of the qualities I like to see out of a champion including charisma, arrogance, confidence and swagger.

But one-on-on matches for the World Heavyweight Championship rarely catch my attention unless they involve the dominant forces in the business.

Chalk this championship match failure up to the lack of high-end talent on the roster.
