Amid all the hype around CM Punk's worked-shoot (Well deserved, I might add), this past night on RAW WWE announced the eight men who will be battling it out for RAW's Money in the Bank briefcase at WWE's Money in the Bank PPV. Here's the line-up:
Alberto Del Rio
No huge surprises in the superstars competing, pretty much the entire RAW mid-card. Cena and Punk obviously are fighting over the title, with Big Show probably fighting Mark Henry. Rey Mysterio is notably absent, as he has been for every Money in the Bank ladder match. He seems like a good fit for such a high-flying endeavor, but it's probably because of his injuries. WWE doesn't want to take the chance of Rey being out long-term. Also no Morrison, seemingly because of his injury, which is a shame because you know he'd do something spectacular.
I like this line-up because even though some have more of a chance than others, I think you could make a feasible argument that anyone could win this year. In addition, Kofi, Ziggler, and Bourne could all provide us with some great moments and high spots.
Let's look at each individual's chances of being Mr. Money in the Bank and challenging John Cena, CM Punk, or any other WWE champion we may see.
