Men's Money in the Bank Ladder Match: Big E vs. Drew McIntyre vs. John Morrison vs. Kevin Owens vs. Ricochet vs. Riddle vs. Seth Rollins vs. Shinsuke Nakamura

Depending on their plans for SummerSlam, I would think one of the best possible options would be for Big E to win and challenge Bobby Lashley for the title. If they can do the Brock Lesnar match for Lashley, though, then it can go to almost anyone on this list.

However, no matter what the scenario (outside of the "we'll give it to someone random and think that we'll figure it out later, even though we'll likely not have a game plan and we'll lose track of things and it'll all be for nothing" situation like what happened to Otis, which are entirely unpredictable guesses because they follow no logic at all), I would assume...logically...the winner isn't going to be at least Ricochet or Shinsuke Nakamura.

If it's not Big E and if they're just doing something random, my guess is Riddle wins.


Universal Championship Match: Roman Reigns (c) vs. Edge

While this is just a rematch that arguably should have happened straight-up at WrestleMania, without Daniel Bryan involved, WWE could have done far, far worse. Yes, it's lazy in the sense that they did the full build and they're just milking this rerun. However, it's not even 1/100th as lazy as Bayley against Bianca Belair.

Edge is a draw. He'll make the fans pop in attendance. People will be interested to see the match (although not as much as the first time, granted). So yes, it's not the most creative idea to go with, but it's the best possible option they had in an era where they don't want to invest in building new stars and want to do the least amount of work possible.

Roman Reigns is great. Edge is great. The match will be good. Reigns will retain and move on to John Cena since we need others to come in to fill the void.

PREDICTION: Roman Reigns retains.

Women's Money in the Bank Ladder Match: Alexa Bliss vs. Asuka vs. Liv Morgan vs. Naomi vs. Natalya vs. Nikki ASH vs. Tamina vs. Zelina Vega

It baffles me how WWE does things. The Bayley injury changed things up, but it shouldn't have been like that to begin with because they shouldn't have had such little foresight to botch the draft on SmackDown and also release people and then have nobody left to fill in that spot after running something like the sixth Bayley match. Stop the repetition.

Then, it makes no sense to me why they'd just put Carmella on SmackDown in the title match instead of figuring out something for the pay-per-view itself. Another discussion for another day (and that's not a slight at Carmella; it's a negative for booking it on television instead)

Then, why did you bring up Tegan Nox and Shotzi Blackheart (and get rid of their names) and Toni Storm, only to randomly announce Natalya, then wait a few days and randomly announce Tamina?

At the very least, if you're looking to kill time on television, book a qualifying match! Wouldn't that not only give some stakes but also book a match to fill time and give people a reason to watch the show?!

PREDICTION: I'd love to see Naomi win and cash in on Bianca Belair with a heel turn at the behest of Roman Reigns, but that's too innovative and interesting. It's probably just going to Alexa Bliss.

WWE Championship Match: Bobby Lashley (c) vs. Kofi Kingston

Considering how Kingston beat Lashley recently and was thrust into the title hunt, this makes sense. It's the easiest option available and it doesn't take anything away from SummerSlam, nor does it come off as a nothing match, because Kingston's a former WWE champion and the true selling point to the event is Money in the Bank itself.

As great as Kofi is, he's 100% not winning this title. It's simply not happening. But that's okay, as it means The All Mighty will add another month to his title reign.

PREDICTION: Bobby Lashley retains.

Raw Women's Championship Match: Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Charlotte Flair

We all saw this coming. So, what's coming next? Well, I'd imagine there are only three realistic outcomes:

Scenario A) Flair is winning the title and fighting Becky Lynch at SummerSlam. They just toss Rhea Ripley aside, unfortunately.

Scenario B) Flair fails to win the title, but they do something that makes it so Flair will get ANOTHER title match. Becky Lynch challenges both Ripley and Flair in a Triple Threat match at SummerSlam.

Scenario C) Flair wins the title. Ripley calls for a rematch, but somehow, Lynch gets in the mix anyway, and we have a Triple Threat that way.

PREDICTION: Charlotte Flair wins the belt.

SmackDown Women's Championship I Quit Match: Bianca Belair (c) vs. Bayley

Director: "We've got to do the 'Jiminy Jillickers' scene again, Milhouse!"

Milhouse: "But we already did it. It took seven hours, but we did it. It's done."

Director: "Yes, but we've got to do it from different angles...again and again..and again and again and again!"

Update: This isn't happening. Bayley's suffered a torn ACL and will out of action for 9 months or so. Instead, their grand scheme of a replacement idea (because they didn't have anything in mind ahead of time, cause it's too hard to think of backup plans or to fix your lack of depth on a roster for a full year after you screwed it up with the last draft for the millionth time since you always run into that issue of under-staffing SmackDown, was to "just do another match between Belair and Carmella" and, even still, that it'll take place on SmackDown, rather than on the pay-per-view. So now, Carmella is out of the MITB ladder match, she's wrestling a generic match for the title on TV, and this match isn't happening at all. Why was there not a call to give the title match at the pay-per-view to Toni Storm or something, at least? Your guess is as good as mine.

PREDICTION: Bianca Belair retains the title.

Raw Tag Team Championship Match: AJ Styles and Omos (c) vs. The Viking Raiders

I'm glad WWE put this on the pay-per-view instead of doing what's been happening lately where a match like this would be "saved" for the television episodes. This should be a fun midcard filler match. It won't break new grounds, but it'll serve all parties well, Erik and Ivar will have their moments to look strong, Omos will be a juggernaut and Styles will be the glue. At the end of the day, the tag titles are staying where they are, cause they definitely need to face RK-Bro at SummerSlam.

PREDICTION: AJ Styles and Omos retain.

SmackDown Tag Team Championship Match: Dominik Mysterio and Rey Mysterio (c) vs. The Usos

I'm glad this is happening on the card instead of on SmackDown. Of course, if I had things my way, The Mysterios would have won the tag titles at WrestleMania and by now, they would be in a better position to drop them to The Usos. Still, I think that's what's happening here, despite how it'll cut Dominik and Rey's time as champions short to basically a non-reign.

PREDICTION: The Usos win the belts.
