The upcoming Money in the Bank pay-per-view is proving to be one of the most exciting events in recent years.
Usually we see two Money in the Bank ladder matches where competitors compete for a briefcase which guarantees them a championship match within one year.
However this year’s event has been met with mixed reviews by fans as only one of the Money in the Bank ladder matches will feature the traditional briefcase, whilst the other will be for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship itself; as Daniel Bryan was stripped off the gold due to not being able to recover from his injury in time.
With the gold on the line and a massive burden to carry now that Bryan is gone for the next couple of months at least – it looks as if John Cena could be the man the WWE turn to, to capture the championship at the Money in the Bank event in June 29.
F4Wonline have reported that John Cena will be the winner in the main event, and will be crowned as the third WWE World Heavyweight Champion, following in the footsteps of Randy Orton and most recently Daniel Bryan.
Original plans called for Daniel Bryan to remain as champion throughout the next few months – if he wasn’t injured that is – and that would lead to a blockbuster clash against The Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam.
Obviously Bryan’s injury and slow recovery time have scuppered many plans, so much so that the WWE World Heavyweight Championship itself has to be on the line in a Money in the Bank match. But the WWE are still hopeful that Bryan could return in time for that.
If that is the case, then Bryan could face the winner in John Cena at the Battleground pay-per-view and win back the gold he never really lost. Before going on to the biggest party of the summer and trying to defend the title against Brock Lesnar.
With Lesnar’s physical style and Bryan’s neck being a major worry right now, it looks as if we may have to wait longer for Daniel Bryan to get another crack at the championship.
Brock Lesnar is still scheduled to compete at SummerSlam and it may well be against John Cena; in a rematch of their Extreme Rules encounter last year, which John Cena won.
Regardless of who the champion is, Lesnar is expected to walk out with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship as he is coming off a massive win against The Undertaker at WrestleMania XXX; any other result would make that lose its credibility. Lesnar needs to look like an unstoppable beast and this would be the perfect way to do it.
Cesaro and Roman Reigns are two favourites amongst fans, but a Cesaro win would mean he would break off from Paul Heyman a lot quicker than scheduled and his face turn might not have the best reaction as it will be quick.
Roman Reigns is expected to become a champion, but not this early into his almost-singles career.
WWE fans – what do you think? Will John Cena overcome the six remaining competitors on his way to becoming WWE World Heavyweight Champion? Or do you think another superstar will win? Let us know in the comments section below and come discuss all things WWE with me on Twitter @RazK28
