WWE Money in the Bank 2022 Preview - Triple Threat POV

Posted by Dallas Allsopp Saturday, July 2, 2022

Welcome to another edition of Triple Threat from Smark Out Moment, where three of us get together to discuss three questions based on one big topic going down in the week of professional wrestling.

This week, Dallas Allsopp, Greg Coleman and Robert DeFelice preview WWE Money in the Bank 2022.

Tonight marks one of the more entertaining pay-per-views of the year - but just who will come out on top?

Question 1: Which undercard match are you most looking forward to?

ALLSOPP: None of them really stand out to me as must see matches, but I do like the sound of The Usos vs The Street Profits. Both teams are perhaps the best in WWE right now, and are capable of a 5 star match if given time. WWE seems to struggle with undercard matches at the moment, as they seem to be for little glory, or have been woefully presented and built. This is the best of a pretty short list of candidates.

COLEMAN: The Usos and The Street Profits always have good matches, so I believe that will be the best match of the night if they give them time. The match I would say I’m most looking forward to because I’m curious about how WWE chooses to handle it, is the WWE United States Championship match between Theory and Bobby Lashley. Lashley has been on a roll since WrestleMania, and so has Theory, which means I want to see who ends up taking the loss, does it result in a title change, and what happens after this match for both men.

DeFELICE: Easily the ladder matches stand out to me because they are fun car crashes with high-stakes. At the end of the day, with no World Champion in sight, I at least enjoy that my main events will have stakes to them.

Question 2: Who will win the women’s Money in the Bank match? Will they successfully cash it in over the next 12 months?

COLEMAN: This feels like the right year to put it on Liv Morgan. I think with two dominant champions, Morgan going over either of them to win her first Women's Championship in WWE would be a great boost for her status. I believe Morgan will be successful in cashing in, but it won’t be against Bianca Belair. I think she cashes in on Ronda Rousey.

DeFELICE: This one is a lot more of a toss-up than the men's bout. I'm still going to play it safe and suggest that Becky Lynch wins the Money in the Bank briefcase for the first time in her career. There is something to the possibility of both Lynch and Seth Rollins holding briefcases for the majority of the rest of the year. I think, if it's not Lynch, you have to look at Lacey Evans as a strong possibility, but undoubtedly, Liv Morgan is the sentimental favor for everybody going into the match.

ALLSOPP: I want Asuka to win and successfully cash in. Why? Because I love the ass kicker that is The Empress of Tomorrow. She is a genuine star of the women’s division, and whilst there would be a level of credence and sensibility in having Becky Lynch win, I feel they are playing the redemption game with her that doesn’t require a Women’s Championship.

Question 3: Who will win the men’s Money in the Bank match? Will they successfully cash it in over the next 12 months?

DeFELICE: It seems like a given that Seth Rollins will win the briefcase this year. I'm okay with that. He had one of the last impactful cash ins l, and with Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns looking to compete once again at SummerSlam, an easy story can be told about the potential deja vu. On top of that, this has to all be going towards Cody Rhodes winning the Royal Rumble and beating Rollins for the title at WrestleMania.

ALLSOPP: Before the announcement of Logan Paul’s WWE signature, I would have easily gone with Riddle, as his progress towards the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship has been clear and well thought out. Well, for WWE standards at least. But I cannot look past WWE wanting some mainstream attention with Paul as their new showpiece. It doesn’t make a lick of sense from a storyline perspective, but it does from a media point of view. Either of them will be successful in cashing in, but Paul would be an egregious choice of Champion.

COLEMAN: The Money in the Bank briefcase works best when a heel is holding it, because there is no concern or issue with a heel waiting until a champion is at their weakest to cash in. With this is mind, I am going safe to pick Seth Rollins to win and become Mr. Money in the Bank for the second time. My sentimental pick is Riddle as I think he would be amazing with the briefcase. Before today, I hadn’t thought about this, but after listening to one of my favorite podcasts (The Corner), one of the hosts made an interesting pick that I think would be pretty awesome if they could pull it off: Cody Rhodes comes back and wins the briefcase in a manner like Brock Lesnar won it. (Shout out to Producer Coale... BAY BAY).

Those are our thoughts on the issue, but where do you stand?
