Welcome to the Bleacher Report live coverage of Money in the Bank 2013. The event emanates from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
This year's MITB is stacked with the two signature ladder matches and five title matches. We also have Chris Jericho against Ryback in a match where the result will be a good indicator of Ryback's future.
Even with all that gold on the line, the two ladder matches are the main focus of this event. Two men will walk out with briefcases containing guaranteed title shots at the time and place of their choosing.
We could even see someone cash in the same night or the following night on Raw. The different possibilities this event presents make this one of the most unpredictable nights of the year.
While the All-Star MITB match contains a few former winners, the World Title MITB match only has one past winner, so there is a very good chance of seeing at least one first-time briefcase winner.
Other than John Cena, every Money in the Bank winner has cashed in and won the title, so winning tonight will almost certainly guarantee a title reign for that person.
The All-Star MITB also has a bit of a surprise element to it since Kane has been taken out of the equation. WWE has not announced the name of the final participant yet, so we could see another big return besides Rob Van Dam, or possibly even one of the losers in the WWE or World title match.
Here is a quick rundown of the card as it currently stands.
- The Shield (c) vs. The Usos (Tag Title Match on the Pre-Show)
- Chris Jericho vs. Ryback
- Curtis Axel (c) vs. Miz (IC Title Match)
- AJ Lee (c) vs. Kaitlyn (Divas Title Match)
- Alberto Del Rio (c) vs. Dolph Ziggler (World Title Match)
- John Cena (c) vs. Mark Henry (WWE Title Match)
- TBD vs. Randy Orton vs. CM Punk vs. Daniel Bryan vs. Sheamus vs. Christian vs. RVD (WWE Title MITB Match)
- Wade Barrett vs. Cody Rhodes vs. Damien Sandow vs. Fandango vs. Jack Swagger vs. Antonio Cesaro vs. U.S. Champion Dean Ambrose (World Title MITB Match)
Two different teams are in the World Title MITB Match together, so we could see some partners turn on each other when they end up on opposite sides of the ladder. We could also see the Wyatt Family make an appearance. Anything could happen.
