It has already been established that the WWE World Heavyweight Championship will be on the line in one Money in the Bank Ladder match. What has not been announced is a second Ladder match with the coveted guaranteed title shot on the line.
Money in the Bank was created with the promise of a Superstar being able to earn a championship opportunity he can cash in at any point over the course of the year. To not have one of those matches on a show that exists solely because of the popularity of that gimmick would be a travesty.
With a stacked roster full of deserving young talent, it would not be difficult to fill six or seven more slots. Kofi Kingston, Dolph Ziggler, Ryback, Cody Rhodes, Jack Swagger and The Miz are six Superstars who have experience in ladder matches and could be significantly rehabilitated with a guaranteed title shot in their possession.
As an opening match, it could pop the Boston crowd and set the bar for the rest of the night's action.
Ziggler has already lost a qualifying match but could easily be interjected in the mix with a win in a "Last Chance" Battle Royal. Swagger and Kingston have played jobber to newcomers in recent weeks, but both have built up enough history with the WWE Universe that a few wins could legitimize their spots in the match.
Rhodes is involved in a storyline in which he grew frustrated with being the weak link in his team with brother Goldust and broke up the duo. What better way to initiate a heel turn than by having the second-generation star win a title shot on his own and then rub it in the face of the brother he split from?
Ryback would serve as the dominant competitor, the muscle of the match responsible for delivering the power-based offense that pops the crowd and makes him look like an unstoppable force.
The Miz is the dark horse of the match. With The Marine 4 in post-production and the company likely to put him in a prominent position on Raw and SmackDown, there is an opportunity to rehab a former WWE Champion desperately in need of it.
He does not have to become the first man to win two briefcases since CM Punk, but a strong performance and an adequate follow-up push would bring some luster back to a character once considered a breakout star for World Wrestling Entertainment.
