He is known as Montel Vontavious Porter in the WWE, or simply just shortened to MVP.

He served his pre-adolescent years in prison, but he has made a step to turn away from that, and I think Vince McMahon should take a step forward also.

MVP entered the WWE as a coveted free agent and was officially signed to the largest contract in SmackDown history.

When he started wrestling in the WWE, the fans mocked his apparel.

Fans chanted "Power Ranger" when he was fighting.

He had his first official feud with Kane, which culminated in MVP defeating Kane in street fights and a steel cage match, but its climax hit at the inferno match at Armageddon where he lost and suffered (maybe) first-degree burns.

When that feud died down, MVP began a feud with the United States Champion, Chris Benoit, and ended up losing to him at his first WrestleMania and at Backlash, but finally won the championship at Judgement Day and credited Benoit for his improved in-ring skills.

He then became WWE Tag Team Champion with Matt Hardy, and you, of course, probably know what happens.

MVP received the "Twist of Fate" while in the M.I.T.B. by Hardy, who was injured by MVP but made an un-announced return.

Hardy then ends MVP's U.S. title reign at a record 343 days, third longest in the title's history.

MVP then had a disappointing five-month losing streak which cost him his contract incentive bonus and the NFL-style tunnel in his entrance.

MVP then turned face by finally beating the Big Show, ensuring Triple H a spot in the Royal Rumble. Shortly afterwards, he won the United States title yet again by defeating Shelton Benjamin.

He then competed in the M.I.T.B. last year, but of course lost.

He was then drafted to RAW and became less cocky and then started a rags-to-riches persona. He was the U.S. champion at the time, but he lost the title to Kofi Kingston on Raw.

He is currently in a tag team with Mark Henry and even faced JeriShow for the unified tag team championships, but lost.

MVP turning face for me was eerily weird, but I still knew that WWE really wasn't going to do anything with this.

When he was not chosen to mentor Skip Sheffield on NXT, this is where my brain started rolling.

His in-ring skills have looked better than ever, and his mic skills and now being a fan favorite gives him a huge advantage to possibly win the Money in the Bank.

WWE should have MVP win, as he knows how to culminate feuds—example Matt Hardy. Being face, I don't know how he can engage in a feud with a monster heel such as Randy Orton, but Vince and Co. will make it happen.

Kane has always been a favorite of mine, but it seems to me he'll be the main jobber in this match.

Dolph, Ziggler and Swagger are definitely two of the few bright spots in the future of the WWE, but just haven't been exposed much to action and main feuds. Just ask Swagger why he's in a feud with Santino. Expect one of them though to win a U.S. title or IC title soon.

Drew McIntyre. The son Mr. McMahon never had.

He definitely has a chance to win it, but this guy's ring set is limited. Expect him to continue a feud with Kane.

Christian and Shelton Benjamin are the top two favorites to win this match. Christian will probably be back in a tag team with Edge if Edge loses, which I think he will.

For Shelton Benjamin, he's been in the Money in the Bank a million times, but always manages crashing into a ladder.

He definitely is the most athletic and one of the best technical wrestlers today, but he will NOT win.

Vince loves the athletic guys, but if you have no charisma, you have no title.

Just ask Charlie Haas.

So, I predict MVP to win the Money in the Bank and cash it in later on in the night against Jericho when he retains the title.

Jericho gets the mic and starts repeating "spear" only for MVP to come out from the crowd with the briefcase and cashes in and ends with MVP hitting "The Playmaker." That's finally where the confetti starts falling, ending the show.

I have my money on him winning (no pun intended) and walking out of WM 26 the World Heavyweight Champion.
