At Money in the Bank, Sami Zayn, Dean Ambrose, Cesaro, Kevin Owens, Chris Jericho and Alberto Del Rio will compete in a Money in the Bank ladder match.

The objective being to climb the ladder and unhook the briefcase suspended above the ring earning the superstar who does this a guaranteed WWE championship match when and wherever they choose within the next 12 months.

A good night for the fans?

History would indicate that a babyface wrestler will win the briefcase this year following the recent heel-heel-face-face-heel-heel pattern associated with the Money in the Bank briefcase.

This would lead everyone to believe that either Cesaro, Ambrose or Zayn will be the leading name to walk away with the treasured briefcase.

One of the names that is a favourite to win at Money in the Bank is Sami Zayn - the newest edition to the main roster out of all the other stars within the match.

The fact is that at this stage in Zayn's career, he doesn't need the briefcase.

It wouldn't benefit him as much as others in the match and Zayn's character is that of an underdog so for him to hold the Money in the Bank contract, it comes with a practical guarantee that he will cash in successfully.

This defeats the objective of someone being the underdog.

Winning the match simply would not fit in with Sami Zayn's character and in the event of him eventually becoming the WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Zayn's gimmick would see him win it with the odds against him.

If he wins the briefcase, the odds are not against him and that will defeat the point of his gimmick despite pleasing the entire WWE Universe.

Superstars such as Kevin Owens or Dean Ambrose would be more suited to the briefcase following an intense and fun rivalry for the Intercontinental Championship at the start of the year.

Giving either man the briefcase would see them come back into the championship scene and re-ignite their careers.

Zayn is still young and fresh and there will be many opportunities in the future for him to win championships but it's still too early for him and he really doesn't need to be rushed into the championship scene.

He's a fan favourite that doesn't appear to be going anywhere anytime soon.
