Bell's 2010 WWE Money in the Bank PPV Predictions

Samuel BellContributor IJuly 14, 2010

My first article here on B/R. Yes, I know literally EVERYONE here is posting their MITB predictions, but I feel like mine are different from everyone's.

Also, in my predictions for the two seperate "Money in the Bank" ladder matches, I will name two people I want to see win and two people I think will win, as it's very tough to predict these matches.

Match One : The Hart Dynasty (c) vs. The Usos for the WWE Unified Tag Team Championships

What I want to happen

I would like to see the Usos win cleanly. They need credibility as they don't get a lot of heat, which is understandable, considering they were pretty much shoved down our throats by creative. A title run would give them that credibility and a new tag team could possibly step up as new contenders, while Smith and Kidd possibly venture into singles territory.

What I think will happen

I think the Hart Dynasty will retain cleanly after a hard-fought fight, and this feud will go on to at least SummerSlam. The Hart Dynasty isn't close to done with their reign yet.

Match Two: Layla (c) vs. Kelly Kelly for the WWE Women's Championship

What I want to happen

I'd like to see Kelly win cleanly, even with interference on Layla's part by Michelle McCool. Kelly Kelly has been with the company for a while now and while she's often viewed as eye candy, I have seen her ring work improve and she is deserving of something for her loyalty.

What I think will happen

Layla retains through interference by Michelle McCool. It's fairly obvious why this will happen, as much as I don't like it.

Match Three: Rey Mysterio (c) vs. Jack Swagger for the World Heavyweight Championship

What I want to happen

I want to see Swagger win the championship back cleanly through his ankle lock. Mysterio, regardless of my bias, needs to take time off and rest his body.

He's been touring and working for the company nonstop for a while now, ever since he came back from his suspension (September 2009), and he planned to take a vacation with his family before the Undertaker got injured and Mysterio stepped up.

Swagger also, in my opinion, needs a new gimmick, as he is not getting heat AT ALL with the audience because he's acting just like Jericho. He needs to go back to his old self—trying to be like Kurt Angle.

What I think will happen

Jack Swagger will regain the championship cleanly through his new Ankle Lock submission, for the reasons I stated above. He'll face Christian (the Smackdown Money in the Bank winner) at SummerSlam.

Match Four: Smackdown Money in the Bank Ladder Match: "Dashing" Cody Rhodes vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Big Show vs. Kane vs. Matt Hardy vs. Christian vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Dolph Ziggler

What I want to happen

I want to see Dolph Ziggler or Christian win. Ziggler is a very talented in-ring competitor who is not being used properly. And, to any one who says "Well, he's never won a championship before," look at Jack Swagger. He won MITB before ever winning a championship. Unless you count stealing Kofi's title belt as a title reign.

Christian is another very talented in-ring competitor who is long overdue for a Championship and has been misused since the termination of the ECW brand. He's paid his dues and he deserves it.

What I think will happen

Either Matt Hardy or Christian will win. Hardy is for the same exact reasons as Christian. Jeff  (Have you seen how fat he is now?) receives all the attention, but Matt is no worse than Jeff in the ring.

Match Five: Alicia Fox (c) vs. Eve Torres for the WWE Diva's Championship

What I want to happen

I want to see Alicia retain here so Melina (my favorite Diva) can come swoop in and take her title back, and possibly feud with the newbie—AJ Lee (look her up on YouTube, she's amazing).

What I think will happen

Alicia retains cleanly. She is another person who needs credibility. She needs a clean win.

Match Six: Sheamus (c) vs. John Cena in a Steel Cage match for the WWE Championship

What I want to happen

I want to see Sheamus retain. Sheamus has grown on me and is now actually one of my favorites. Sure, Cena can rag on him for being a "human jar of mayonnaise," but let's face the music—Sheamus is already more successful than Cena.

In less than a year, Sheamus made a huge run up the ranks and already has two championships under his belt. Cena didn't get his first title run until three years after his debut in a classic with JBL.

What I think will happen

SuperCena will regain his title ONCE AGAIN. He will have a triple threat match at SummerSlam with Sheamus and Wade Barrett.

Main Event RAW Money in the Bank Ladder Match: The Miz vs. Mark Henry vs. John Morrison vs. Ted DiBiase vs. Edge vs. Chris Jericho vs. Randy Orton vs. Evan Bourne

What I want to happen

I want to see either John Morrison or Ted DiBiase win. Morrison is long overdue and DiBiase needs to gain some heat. This is a great way to do it.

What I think will happen

Morrison or Orton will win. They've been making Orton the man standing tall at the end of all the clashes between himself, Jericho, Bourne, and Edge, while DiBiase and Morrison are clashing, and Miz and Mark Henry are going at it. He's a strong competitor (that SSP into the RKO was absolutely INSANE). Morrison deserves it, and he's an amazing in-ring performer who would be a great Champion.
