Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live present WWE Money in the Bank 2019 Spoilers

Men's Money in the Bank Ladder Match: Ali vs. Andrade vs. Baron Corbin vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Finn Balor vs. Randy Orton vs. Ricochet vs. Sami Zayn

Very surprised this isn't a 10-man match that would have included Bobby Lashley, possibly Cesaro, maybe even Robert Roode or Cedric Alexander, Aleister Black, Buddy Murphy, etc. I'm also surprised that they switched Braun Strowman with Sami Zayn, but that at least seems like it'll help push a feud forward, so that's a good thing. I expect Strowman to get involved in some fashion to cost Zayn the match, by the way, and my top picks are still deadlocked in there as Andrade and Drew McIntyre.

PREDICTION: I wouldn't be shocked if Andrade won, but I'm going with Drew McIntyre.

Women's Money in the Bank Ladder Match: Bayley vs. Carmella vs. Dana Brooke vs. Ember Moon vs. Mandy Rose vs. Naomi vs. Natalya vs. Nikki Cross

Very surprised Ruby Riott and Sasha Banks weren't in this match (but not surprised about the Banks backstage issues). Alexa Bliss was taken out of the equation after originally being scheduled for the match. It's not too surprising to me that Zelina Vega, Liv Morgan, The Kabuki Warriors, Mickie James and Sarah Logan aren't involved, but Sonya Deville was a surprise (unless she's helping or costing Mandy Rose the match).

With that being said, I think this match boils down to Mandy Rose or Bayley. Those are the only two that stand out as possibilities, and I think even more so that it's only a Bayley show. She can cash in on Charlotte Flair (if she wins the title) and stay a babyface, or she can cash in on Becky Lynch and win the title in a heel turn and finally refresh her character.

PREDICTION: Bayley wins and the only way she doesn't is if Sasha Banks somehow enters the match.

Raw Women's Championship Match: Becky Lynch (c) vs. Lacey Evans

Lacey Evans did nothing but wait, and somehow, WWE felt like that was a good enough build for her to go straight into a title match. Flawed logic, and I hope it doesn't backfire, because Lacey has a lot of potential and this could kill her momentum before she ever has a chance. I think this is a no-win situation. If Becky wins, Lacey hit a roadblock from day one. If Lacey wins, people will view her as a Roman Reigns type being pushed down their throats. If there's a non-finish, that will seem like an underwhelming stall.

PREDICTION: Becky Lynch retains the title.

Universal Championship Match: Seth Rollins (c) vs. AJ Styles

I thought they would go with Baron Corbin here, so I'm pretty surprised. However, this isn't too wild of an idea. Having Rollins vs. Styles in a face/face feud is easier to pull off when you have something like the Money in the Bank ladder matches as another selling point, because you don't have to build the next few weeks around some bitter feud between the two, and most of the selling points will just be people interested in seeing Rollins and Styles lock up for the first time.

PREDICTION: Seth Rollins retains the title.

WWE Championship Match: Kofi Kingston (c) vs. Kevin Owens

There goes that face turn. I knew they'd reneg on that. That's disappointing. I was hoping to see Owens against some other people like Randy Orton.

PREDICTION: Kofi Kingston retains the title.

Elias vs. Roman Reigns

Didn't they do a random singles match last year at Money in the Bank with Roman Reigns just to keep him out of the ladder match? Wasn't that Jinder Mahal's purpose? Why are we redoing that? Oh well, at least it means that will free up one more spot for someone else on SmackDown to get into the MITB match.

PREDICTION: Roman Reigns wins.

SmackDown Women's Championship Match: Becky Lynch (c) vs. Charlotte Flair

They have had good to great matches, but yeah, I've seen this enough times that I have nothing to say about it. Part of me really thinks Flair can win this and another part of me thinks Becky will just barely retain, only to be cashed in on and lose the title to someone else.

PREDICTION: 51% leaning toward Becky Lynch retaining the title. I wouldn't be shocked at all if Flair won, or if Bayley cashed in, though.

Steel Cage Match: The Miz vs. Shane McMahon

I wonder why they're doing both a cage match and two ladder matches on the same event. That seems strange. You'd think maybe they'd do the steel cage match at the Saudi Arabia show or something instead, right?

PREDICTION: The Miz wins, unless someone interferes to attack him and start a new feud.

United States Championship Match: Samoa Joe (c) vs. Rey Mysterio

It seemed at first like this would be Braun Strowman, but they went ahead and changed that up to being a rematch from WrestleMania. My guess is they'll do here what they originally planned on doing back at Mania, which is why Dominic is still factoring into things. Either he does something to help Mysterio win, or he is the reason why Rey loses.

PREDICTION: 51% Rey Mysterio wins.

Cruiserweight Championship Match: Tony Nese (c) vs. Ariya Daivari

This made sense as the first feud for Tony Nese to brush aside.

Drew Gulak will be busy with Humberto Carrillo and Gentleman Jack Gallagher for a little bit. Oney Lorcan might start a feud with someone else. Akira Tozawa and The Brian Kendrick are still babyfaces. Mike Kanellis is after Daivari, I think, who was touted as being "undefeated for a while" so he seems like the first person to be fed to Nese in order to help establish him as champion, even though I don't think it's going to move the needle.

Then, after we've gone from Daivari to Kanellis, we'll go to Gulak and Nese will drop the belt to him.

PREDICTION: Tony Nese retains the title.

SmackDown Tag Team Champions Daniel Bryan and Rowan (c) vs. The Usos

You shouldn't have to continually bring a Raw tag team over to SmackDown just to have challengers for Daniel Bryan and Rowan. With that being in mind, there's no way The Usos can win this match if the titles are on the line, but it seems as though WWE is making this a non-title match. In that scenario, The Usos can win, and that might be exactly why they are making this with the belts not up for grabs.

PREDICTION: Daniel Bryan and Rowan retain the titles if they're on the line, but if it's a non-title match, The Usos win.
