Cashing In: Evan Bourne's "Money In The Bank" Opportunity

Bryan VelosoContributor IJune 21, 2010

It should come as no surprise to anyone that the high-flying antics of one of RAW's smallest stars is a force to be reckoned with. 

Evan Bourne's win over Chris Jericho last night, albeit predictable, couldn't have come at a better time.

He's truly made a name for himself at Y2J's expense, and as a consequence, is being put on the same path that led Sheamus and the All-American American to their current statuses in the organization.

Speaking of the Swagger of Swaggers, we can all recall what changed the aura of the former collegiate athlete—the "Money in the Bank" match.

Historically, the Money in the Bank matches have been focused on the mid-card rosters of both brands. As our favorite commentators have reiterated over and over through the years, winning the Money in the Bank match has been a one-way path to the top.

One would be quite narrow-minded to not entertain the scenario that the WWE's next new pay-per-view has Evan in mind.

So we can assume that the main event of this next production is the Money in the Bank match.

That in and of itself is interesting because as a main event, it will draw more time. While we've seen captivating ladder battles in past WrestleManias, we can at least expect this edition to be the most involved one yet.

There is one other result from last night's pay-per-view that makes a Mr. Evan "Money in the Bank" Bourne scenario even more interesting: the crowning of our new World's Heavyweight Champion—Rey Mysterio. While many have called for Evan to enter the race for the U.S. Championship, which he may do so in the days leading up to Money in the Bank; a clash between Mysterio and Bourne at SummerSlam is too tasty to deny.

But it's not the prospect of gold that's interesting. It's the pursuit.

The very fact that Evan would choose to take the ultimate gold would only solidify the push that started only weeks ago. 

So, what do you do? The Shooting Star can't be denied at this point, the only question is his path.

The climate is right for him to go all the way.
