WWE Money in the Bank 2015 Preview

Tonight, live on the WWE Network and on Pay-Per-View, the annual June extravaganza, Money in the Bank, emanates from the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

As well as the Money in the Bank Ladder Match, there is a highly-anticipated rematch from a previous show, and also a ladder match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. So let's take a look at the card.


The customary pre-show match on the show features a match between R Truth and King Barrett. Barrett will be looking for revenge as R Truth pinned the King of the Ring winner, in the Elimination Chamber match for the Intercontinental Championship, at the Elimination Chamber special. Not to mention the fact that R Truth disrespected Barrett's new king attire.

Prediction: King Barrett

Main Card

Ryback (C) vs Big Show (WWE Intercontinental Championship)

Ryback was victorious in aforementioned Elimination Chamber match for the Intercontinental Championship at the previous event, and his first defence comes in the form of the World's Largest Athlete, The Big Show. Big Show returned recently on Raw, and knocked out The Miz at the end of his match with Ryback. Big Show set his sights on the Human Wrecking Ball, and the Intercontinental Championship gold.

They both featured on a segment of Miz TV on the latest edition of Monday Night Raw, in which Ryback delivered a thunderous Shellshock to lay down a marker before their clash at Money in the Bank.

Prediction: Ryback

The New Day (C) vs The Prime Time Players (WWE Tag Team Championships)

The New Day have been invoking the Freebird Rule since they won the WWE Tag Team Championships from Tyson Kidd and Cesaro at WWE Extreme Rules in April 2015. With Xavier Woods, Kofi Kingston, and Big E allowed to defend the titles, they have done well to hold on to the gold so far, especially when all three of them were allowed into the Elimination Chamber match for the titles.

However, with Kofi preparing for the Money in the Bank Ladder Match, it may end up just being Big E and Xavier Woods left to defend the titles in a more fair contest, against Darren Young ad Titus O'Neil (The Prime Time Players).

These two teams were the final two in the Chamber match, and Young and O'Neil have been building a bit of momentum lately, so this could be a good match.

Prediction: The New Day

Nikki Bella (C) v Paige (WWE Divas Championship)

Nikki Bella has now been WWE Divas Champion since Survivor Series 2014, where she defeated AJ Lee. She is approaching AJ Lee's record for the longest Divas Title run in history. Standing in her way this time is Paige, who was the one left out of the decision in the Triple Threat match with Naomi at Elimination Chamber, so she gets her one-on-one shot this time around.

Prediction Nikki Bella

John Cena vs Kevin Owens

This is one of the most exciting rematches in recent times. NXT Champion Kevin Owens shocked the world at Elimination Chamber by defeating the United States Champion, and 15-time World Champion John Cena by pinfall. Unfortunately the rematch for this one comes just two weeks after that shock win.

Cena will be looking to restore his pride, while Owens is dead-set on exposing the lie that is John Cena. Owens could do with another win to establish him as a future main-eventer in WWE. However, it is hard to bet against Cena getting his win back, although this one could be in controversial circumstances.

Prediction: John Cena via DQ or a Double Disqualification

Dolph Ziggler vs Neville vs Sheamus vs Kofi Kingston vs Randy Orton vs Kane vs Roman Reigns (Money in the Bank Ladder Match)

One of the most anticipated matches of the year, the Money in the Bank Ladder Match is always a chaotic affair, which can make a superstar, and a future WWE World Heavyweight Champion. There are seven participants this time around, with high-flyers such as Kofi Kingston, Dolph Ziggler and Neville to amp up the excitement.

However, it seems like there is one major front-runner for the briefcase, who can play into the developing storyline between Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose, which is Roman Reigns. There is an outside chance that maybe Kofi Kingston could shock the world to acquire the contract but Reigns looks most likely to win.

Prediction: Roman Reigns

Seth Rollins (C) vs Dean Ambrose (Ladder Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship)

This rivalry between Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose dates back to when Rollins turned his back on the Shield to join up with the Authority last year. This led to a frantic and awesome Lumberjack Match between them at Summerslam 2014, and then one of the best Hell in a Cell matches in years at the namesake Pay-Per-View. 

However, the rivalry cooled off as Ambrose feuded with Bray Wyatt and Rollins focused on becoming WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Recently, they have crossed paths again, with Ambrose victorious via DQ at Elimination Chamber, therefore gaining another title match at Money in the Bank.

Roman Reigns could play a role in this match, especially if he wins the Money in the Bank briefcase. And with Brock Lesnar's return imminent, any of a number of possibilities for the outcome of this one are plausible. From Ambrose winning the title, to Rollins retaining, and maybe even Reigns cashing in his briefcase (should he win it) could all happen. However, it seems like Seth Rollins vs Brock Lesnar at Summerslam makes the most sense.

Prediction: Seth Rollins
