WWE Money in the Bank 2022 Spoilers

Raw Women's Championship Match: Bianca Belair (c) vs. Carmella

Rhea Ripley was scheduled for this match, but was taken out. Carmella won a Fatal 5-Way to become her replacement. This is one of those situations where it feels like I'm crapping on Carmella by saying it's a downgrade and a foregone conclusion that Belair retains, but I'm actually a fan of Carmella, so that's just an unfortunate reality and bad association by proxy.

However...it's still true. Carmella stands zero chance at beating Belair unless they want to do a surprise cash-in and have whoever wins Money in the Bank beat Carmella right after. But I don't think that's going to happen. I think this is just as straightforward as Belair beating Carmella and this only happens to kill time on the pay-per-view.

PREDICTION: Bianca Belair retains.

SmackDown Women's Championship Match: Ronda Rousey (c) vs. Natalya

This is fairly straightforward. Natalya is there just to kill time and be fed to Rousey. There is absolutely zero chance, under any circumstance, that Nattie takes the belt. Next?

PREDICTION: Ronda Rousey retains.

Men's Money in the Bank Ladder Match: Drew McIntyre vs. Omos vs. Riddle vs. Sami Zayn vs. Seth Rollins vs. Sheamus vs. TBD

WWE bounced around like 12 times about whether or not this match would have 6, 7 or 8 competitors. I'm assuming Kevin Owens was planned to be one of the competitors and came down with COVID or something, so they're postponing the final participant until SmackDown as they need to figure out who they want to fill the void. Of course, there are TONS of options, so it's not as though WWE is left with nobody to pick from.

This year is probably a total bust in every way. Cody Rhodes was going to be a big deal for this and he's out. Then, they're just tossing a few of the random people in there. They probably have no idea what they want to do, and even if they do, it's probably that they'll dawdle and have someone lose to Roman Reigns anyway.

Omos isn't winning this by any means. It certainly won't be Sheamus. I still think there's a story to tell with Sami Zayn trying to get into The Bloodline and holding the briefcase, but that requires too much effort and WWE won't want to do that. That means it will either be McIntyre and he'll just say "I officially challenge you for Clash at the Castle" and wastes it, or they'll have Riddle use it for another match against Reigns to avoid the "you can't challenge him anymore" stipulation just to stretch that out for another month, or, more than likely, Seth Rollins wins and they just want to have him tease a potential cash-in over time without actually doing it. I don't think Rollins is taking the belts off Roman and going into Mania with the titles against Cody Rhodes like many others are projecting.

PREDICTION: I guess Seth Rollins wins.

Women's Money in the Bank Ladder Match: Alexa Bliss vs. Asuka vs. Becky Lynch vs. Lacey Evans vs. Liv Morgan vs. Raquel Rodriguez vs. Shotzi

Well, I can tell you 6 people it won't be out of this 7. We're all looking at Becky Lynch. She'll win this and cross over into SmackDown to have another match against Ronda Rousey, as WWE can only do repeats anymore. I would be utterly stunned if anything else happens. They're sure as fuck not giving this to Shotzi, for instance. You know that is a guarantee. So unless they want to waste it on Lacey Evans or give it to Liv Morgan and have her lose just so people get invested in the "maybe" of it all, it is just going to go to Lynch.

PREDICTION: Becky Lynch wins.

Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championship Match: The Usos (c) vs. The Street Profits

Hey. They're doing a title match on a pay-per-view, instead of on Raw and SmackDown. Neato burrito. You know how this will go, as The Usos aren't dropping those belts any time soon. The match will be good, even though the momentum heading into it leaves much to the imagination.

This is supposed to have some sort of stipulation, but in typical WWE fashion, they haven't announced it yet. That means it'll either be announced at random on Twitter, they're waiting until Friday Night SmackDown or the pay-per-view itself to announce it because they want to stretch things out, or they still haven't figured anything out for it and might even drop that idea entirely.

PREDICTION: The Usos retain.

United States Championship Match: Theory (c) vs. Bobby Lashley

Lashley needs to fight Roman Reigns for the world titles down the line. Theory should fight John Cena with the United States Championship on the line. Therefore, Theory retains here. Simple as that.

There's a chance Lashley wins the title, allowing Cena vs. Theory to be without the belt, but I'm sure WWE doesn't really prioritize what the United States Championship is going to be rather than if Cena is appearing at all. It could just as easily be a non-title match and they can try to sell it as if that's not disappointing. "Well, you're getting Cena. That's more important, right? Shut up about the title not being on the line, even though that spoils Cena will win!"

PREDICTION: Theory retains.

More matches will be announced. Stay tuned for updates.
