I could go with two matches here, and they are two of the three I expect most people would be picking.
Option 1, of course, is the Money In The Bank match itself. 6 men, only one of whom has ever won the match. Ladders. This one ought to be good. It will be, in my opinion, a pretty bold statement for the so-called New Era, because unless Del Rio or Jericho wins it (and there are better odds for one of the other four winning), we will get a completely new face. Someone who hasn’t held the Championship before. That’s pretty exciting, so it’s hard not to really be excited for this one. It’s effectively it’s own championship belt, sort of. It is a pretty big deal. So it’s exciting to see who is booked to win it, and then wondering how they will be booked following the event, in terms of teased cash-ins and such.
Option 2 is the hyped AJ Styles versus John Cena clash, but for me this lands here not so much because of the match-which I think will be quite good-but because of the extracurricular activities I am expecting. Yes, I am well aware that Styles signed the contract on RAW, stating The Club would stay away. But we all know that is a literal loophole. It implies only currently known Club members. It does not say anything about future additions, such as one recently deposed former NXT Champion, who we could assume said his good-byes at the end of TakeOver:The End. Is it so crazy to be excited by this match, for the possibility of Finn Balor’s WWE Main Roster debut?
I agree with John. Money in the Bank and AJ Styles vs. John Cena are the clear favorites. The MITB is interesting because only one entrant (Chris Jericho) has been WWE Champion; so, someone may only be a few steps from reaching main event status. All six men in the match could deliver in a standard contest. Toss in a ladder and briefcase with a WWE title shot on the line and expect to be amazed.
Cena vs. Styles might not be a dream match like WWE is hyping, but it’s interesting. The timing is perfect as there’s no clear winner at this moment. Cena hasn’t fought in a high profile match in over six months. At the same time, Styles is just entering this heel role. Both need the win. I’m more excited about this match because Cena and Styles will bring the best out of each other; and that’s wrestling.
