|WWE Money in the Bank 2012 Spoilers & Predictions|
WWE Championship: CM Punk (c) vs. Daniel Bryan
One more match between these two makes sense. Punk needs to retain here and Bryan needs to start a feud with someone else. I'd like that person to be Christian (who would be ending his feud with Cody Rhodes). I'm not sure who I'd like Punk to go on to face, though. This match should be good. AJ as the special guest referee could be a burden in it or something that makes it that much better....it's hard to say.
PREDICTION: CM Punk retains.
World Heavyweight Championship: Sheamus (c) vs. Alberto Del Rio
Makes sense to have these two in this match together as they were building up to it before, but it didn't feel big enough. This pay-per-view has the two MITB matches to make up for that. Sheamus will retain here. The true question is whether or not he walks out of this pay-per-view with the title. He could very well be cashed in on by the end of the night by whomever wins the title shot in the Money in the Bank match.
PREDICTION: Sheamus retains.
WWE Championship Money in the Bank Match 2012: John Cena vs. Chris Jericho vs. Big Show vs. Kane
Wow, this is fucking AWFUL. How did we go from 10 up and coming stars that will fly around and go crazy to 2 giants that can barely climb a ladder, one person who considers WWE his backup safety net job, and the guy everyone criticizes about being in the main event and champion too often as the ONLY participants in this Money in the Bank match??? There's nothing about this that I like. Way to fuck up what has the potential to be one of the most fun matches of the year. Just really a bad decision in my mind. You know how many people are going to be ignored because of this? Jack Swagger, David Otunga, Zack Ryder, Kofi Kingston, the Miz, R-Truth, Justin Gabriel, and more...and not only will those people be ignored, but it'll also result in a much worse match. Lose/lose situation.
PREDICTION: Who cares? It won't be Kane, I'll tell you that.
World Heavyweight Championship Money in the Bank 2012 Match: Damien Sandow vs. Tyson Kidd vs. Christian vs. Santino Marella vs. Tensai vs Dolph Ziggler vs Cody Rhodes vs. Sin Cara
The best way I can sum this match up is the words "it's a shame". It's a shame Tensai is in this match. It's a shame Tyson Kidd's push is going to be meaningless and they won't follow through with it. It's a shame they're not splitting Cody Rhodes and Dolph Ziggler up so they can both win the briefcase rather than wasting an opportunity with the WWE title shot one. It's a shame Zack Ryder isn't in this. It's a shame Jack Swagger isn't in this. It's a shame Wade Barrett isn't in this. I'll only be happy if Ziggler or Rhodes wins this match - or to an extent Damien Sandow, but as big of a fan of Sandow as I am, he's not ready. Ziggler and Cody are ready and one of them NEEDS to win. The other needs to be pushed to a main event slot anyway. Santino is already wasting the US title so he certainly doesn't need this (and I'd like to see him drop the US title as soon as possible to someone that can do more with it, like Sandow). Christian doesn't need another world title reign. Kidd has no shot. Tensai BETTER not fucking win. Sin Cara has no shot, he's there to hopefully do a bunch of flips and such and not much else.
PREDICTION: This needs to be Cody Rhodes or Dolph Ziggler. Either one, I'd be ok with, and I hope the other gets his push as well.
YouTube Pre-Show Tag Team Championship: Kofi Kingston & R-Truth (c) vs. Hunico & Camacho
No question whatsoever, Kofi and Truth retain the titles here. I'd bet everything I own on it. They'll have a match with Darren Young and Titus O'Neil eventually and THEY might win the titles, but Hunico and Camacho won't.
PREDICTION: Kofi Kingston and R-Truth, the unnamed tag team which shows you how much effort they gave these two, will retain.
