As we are nearing closer and closer to the upcoming June PPV ‘Money In The Bank’, many wrestling sources and fans are making their predictions on who will become this year’s ‘Mr. Money In The Bank’.
The majority of predictions seem to be for Kevin Owens to win and receive a main event push. However, another big name favoured to win is ‘Bray Wyatt’.
Main event push
Winning Money in the Bank can be arguably the most significant event in any superstar's career as it can catapult them to instant glory.

While names like Owens, Wyatt and even Sami Zayn are expected to compete for the briefcase, Wyatt may have made the first subtle nod to the impending ladder match.
Bray Wyatt recently changed his profile picture on Twitter to portray an image of himself with a ladder and a ring in the background – hinting that his focus is on becoming the winner at MITB.
Whilst it might just be a sign of his desire to win at MITB and go on to challenge for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, it could mean so much more.
It could also be a slight hint that the WWE might be giving him the main event push that he deserves, as the winner of the MITB match tends to be elevated to main event calibre.
Wyatt has made a name for himself on the main roster by perfecting the art of attacking when least expected, so could he be the perfect Mr Money in the Bank?
However, Bray Wyatt still has some unfinished business with another big name on the roster.
Brock Lesnar vs The Wyatts
Due to various injuries this past year, Bray Wyatt has not been able to remain fully engaged in any rivalries.
For instance, the feud between Brock Lesnar and the Wyatt family has been left wide open since the Royal Rumble.
Since January have been rumours suggesting that the Wyatt family might disband in the near future so now could be the time to action this feud.
Given that the Wyatts cost Lesnar his opportunity at the Royal Rumble, it would make perfect sense for Lesnar to interfere at Money In The Bank, and subsequently cost Wyatt his chance at facing the WWE champion.
This would be a subtle way to reintroduce the feud and would show that the Royal Rumble incident hasn’t just been forgotten.
This is a feud that many fans want to see and I think that this would also be a perfect opportunity to break up the Wyatt stable.
Should disbanding the Wyatts be In the interest of the fans & WWE, you could play out the feud in the same way it had been in the build up to Royal Rumble with one slight change.
WWE could get Braun Strowman, Luke Harper & Erick Rowan to deceive Bray Wyatt and turn their backs on him.
This could pave the way for a final showdown between Wyatt & Lesnar, perhaps at Summerslam?
Having the Wyatts implode in this way would achieve two goals for WWE.
Firstly it would allow them to continue using Strowman, Harper and Rowan as a stable with each man having an equal voice and would avoid them falling into relative obscurity like they did last time the faction broke up.
It could also open the door for the formation of a new Wyatt Family and an emerging or struggling tag team being taken under the wing of Bray Wyatt.
