MITB Spoiler: Participants for World Title MITB Revealed

Gone Baby GoneContributerAugust 16, 2016

It's disclosure time again: If you are not a fan of spoilers, there is no need to read any further.

Especially if you are looking forward to all that WWE has in store for Friday night’s SmackDown!

Alright, with that out of the way, it's time to get down to business.

According to WrestlingInc.com:

The Money In The Bank contestants for the World Heavyweight Championship title shot at next month's Money In The Bank pay-per-view were revealed at tonight's SmackDown taping. The contestants are: Fandango, Wade Barrett, Dean Ambrose, Jack Swagger, Damien Sandow, Cody Rhodes and Antonio Cesaro.

Overall, I am a bit surprised by some of these choices—most notably Fandango. The reason I am surprised by this pick is due to his recent concussion and lack of TV presence since. That being said, I am certain he will shine in this ladder match as he would in any ladder match.

To me, another surprise entry is Jack Swagger. In case you were unaware, Swagger was just found guilty on Tuesday for a DUI that happened prior to WrestleMania 29. So, this stands out because I would think the WWE would want to shy away from any sort of main-event push for him. Especially considering his manager, Zeb Colter, has seemingly moved away from Swagger and is now backing Antonio Cesaro.

Personally, I would like to see Colter screw Swagger at the pay-per-view and move forward with Cesaro. Either way you slice it, this is shaping up to be a solid card and should not disappoint. Ultimately, this event has become pretty popular in recent years and has produced a multitude of champions who have continued to succeed, even after their title run.

In the end, we will have to see what the WWE has in store for us over the next three weeks leading up to the event.
