Why MITB Needs A Women’s PPV Match

The moment where Seth Rollins rushed into the ring and cashed in his Money in the Bank (MITB) briefcase at WrestleMania 31 will never be forgotten. The same can be said with Dolph Ziggler and even CM Punk of previous years. However, what about the ladies of WWE?

The MITB Ladder Match is brutal. It takes a fearless competitor to make these matches amazing and getting injured is almost inevitable. With this being said, the briefcase can add so much to a storyline and increase a superstar’s popularity overnight. The thought of being able to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at any given moment creates fear from the current champion and adds increased entertainment for the moment when they actually cash it in.

Although Rollins’ cash-in may have been more iconic because it was at WrestleMania, the pop that Dolph Ziggler created when he defeated Alberto Del Rio was unheard of.

The post-WrestleMania crowd was so over for Ziggler that night and if it wasn’t for a concussion a month later, that briefcase cash-in could have transformed him into “Daniel Bryan-like popularity.”

Based on the fame that the cash-in can create from the MITB Ladder Match, there’s no reason that the Women’s Division shouldn’t transform this idea. With this being said, there has never been a ladder match in WWE women’s history, so it’s a tough match to execute.

However, the talent pool of women wrestler’s within WWE right now is at its height. Every superstar is a superior athlete and given the opportunity, they should be more than capable of putting on a classic match. Bayley and Banks performed the first ever ‘Iron-Women’ Match in NXT last year, and it was a match of the year candidate. The same would most likely be said if there was a Ladder match.

Is it possible that someone will get hurt? Absolutely. It’s almost guaranteed. Despite the potential of injuries, a true ‘Divas Revolution’ would mean participating in matches like this. The women superstars would see promotion like never before for a Ladder Match and the one who prevails in the match could see their popularity rise to a new status.

Although injury risks are a true reason as to why someone wouldn’t want to participate in a Ladder Match, it’s basically every professional wrestlers duty. Non-stipulated matches aren’t where moments grow. It’s on top of a ladder reaching for a briefcase where dreams come true and superstars are born.

So just like the previous hashtag read #GiveDivasAChance, it’s time to rekindle that and see what they’re made of with their own Ladder match.

    I don’t think wwe would do a multi diva ladder match. Maybe a one on one in the future. But I just don’t think it would be a very good match. I can’t see them taking to many huge bumps.

    I think it can happen sometime in the near future, within the next 2 years. I think it should build up to that type of match. It’ll have to go through stages, like a traditional ladder match, a no dq, possibly a tables match or cage match before a woman’s mitb contract match. When that match happens, participants would be more likely be NXT alumni.

    Maybe in the next few years but only about 3-4 of the women on the main roster now are even people I think would do well in a ladder match.
