The Hype Bros vs. The Colons
“The Long Island Iced Z” Zack Ryder is back, baby! He’s teaming up with his partner Mojo Rawley, who has been down on his lucky lately. Can Rawley’s success turn when Zack is on the attack?
The Colons have seriously been kicking ass. I wouldn’t be surprised if they pulled off the victory, since they certainly can use the win. But Ryder just came back. Why ruin his momentum now? Unless they’re planning on turning Rawley or Rider heel. I can see a yuge feud between the two Hyped Bros in the future. But for now, I think the WWE will keep them together, which pretty much guarantees a victory.

WWE SmackDown Tag Team Championship: The Usos (c) vs. The New Day
The Usos have been ultra-dominant as the champions of SmackDown Live. But ya boys, The New Day have arrived on the blue brand, and they want hold of those tag titles. Will The Usos’ penitentiary lock-down The New Day? Or will the power of positivity overcome the bad boy Usos?
The New Day is the WWE tag team watermark. They’re the best Vinnie Mac’s company has to offer when it comes to tag-teaming on that booty. Yup, that doesn’t sound right. But that’s The New Day for ya! The challengers need a win to add an exclamation point to their SmackDown arrival. Xavier Woods is looking to go up-up-down-down all over their asses. Alright, that sounds even worse. But it wins titles…

WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship: Naomi (c) vs. Lana
“The Ravishing Russian” Lana has arrived big-time on the blue brand. She’ll be looking to knock off the champion Naomi and snatch away the WWE SmackDown Women’s http://coed.com/2017/06/16/naomi-vs-lana-photos-wwe-money-in-the-bank-sexy-pictures/. Meanwhile, Naomi seems to be underestimating this blonde bombshell. Big mistake!
SmackDown is in serious need of stars who pop, particularly in their women’s division. Lana may not be the best candidate to knock off Naomi, since she’s practically a novice in the ring. But her crowd reaction is phenomenal for a person who hardly ever gets in the ring. Naomi’s a dominant champion, but her act is starting to get a bit stale. However, I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see her defeat Lana tonight. I see a victory in store for The Ravishing Russian…
Lana defeats Naomi to become the new WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion
Outcome: Dammit! I was on the fence with this match and did think Naomi would win, but changed my mind.
First-ever Women’s Money In The Bank ladder match (winner receives a contract for a match anytime for the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship): Carmella vs. Tamina Snuka vs. Natalya vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch
I expect the women to steal the show tonight. They have a lot to prove tonight in the first-ever women’s Money In The Bank ladder match. Who will make it out with that pearly white briefcase? In my opinion, Charlotte has been in the spotlight for way too long. She doesn’t need this win as much as her colleagues.
Becky Lynch’s fire has dulled as of late. A win for her would revitalize her career. But I think it’s time to turn that orange-haired lass into a bad girl. That will bring back interest to her character.
A member of The Welcoming Committee has a 3/5 chance of winning this match. Those ladies need an extra boost to help continue the momentum of their group. I see one of the three members of that villainous squad coming out victorious. “The Chinless Wonder” James Ellsworth will also be at ringside to make sure his girl friend Carmella walks away with the briefcase. The Princess of Staten Island oozes charisma and would make an excellent first-ever Ms. Money In The Bank. But I think one star needs the win the most…
Tamina Snuka wins the first-ever women’s Money In The Bank ladder match
Outcome: James Ellsworth winning this match for Carmella did cross my mind. But f**k, I didn’t pick her to win.
Money In The Bank ladder match (winner receives a contract for a match anytime for the WWE World Championship): Baron Corbin vs. Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Sami Zayn vs. Kevin Owens vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. AJ Styles
I don’t remember the last time a Money In The Bank event was so unpredictable. But this match may be the hardest to call of them all. Each competitor in this match would make an excellent Mr. Money In The Bank. Dolph Ziggler is the only man in this match to have achieved that designation in the past. But I don’t think tonight is The Showoff’s night.
Baron Corbin has been an absolute beast ever since he stepped front in the blue brand. He’s one of my favorites to win tonight’s big match. However, he’ll have phenomenal competition to contend with.
AJ Styles probably doesn’t need this win, since he’s already a former WWE World Champion. But “The Phenomenal One” needs to get back on his game and a win tonight could do just that.
Kevin Owens is another one of my top picks for victory. He showed that he could hold his own as Monday Night Raw‘s top champion. Despite the fact that he got annihilated by old-timer Goldberg in a matter of seconds for the Universal Championship. Maybe tonight, KO will win back some main-event momentum.
Sami Zayn is literally the underdog of this match. Not many people expect him to win, which may just seal his fate for tonight. But WWE loves to surprise and shock its fans. The crowd would go absolutely insane for a Sami Zayn victory.
Shinsuke Nakamura is the exemplar of the New Era. His star has been fading ever since he arrived on the main roster. That may all change tonight if he walks away with that briefcase. I think he will…
Shinsuke Nakamura becomes Mr. Money In The Bank
Outcome: Baron Corbin was my second pick to win this thing. Naturally, he felt like the better fit for Mr. Money In The Bank. But sh*t…my favoritism for “The King of Strong Style” Shinsuke Nakamura got in the way. And I should have went with my gut feeling about Baron.
WWE World Championship: Jinder Mahal (c) vs. Randy Orton
Jinder Mahal’s rise to the top of WWE is simply unprecedented. He went from jobber-to-the-stars to main-event world champion. Who else has risen to the top so fast? He’s the living example of that Drake song “Started From The Bottom.”
Jinder is about as hard-body as they come, so he definitely has the physique of a champion. He’ll most likely knock off Orton in his first title defense. But “The Bulgarian Brute” Rusev may inject himself into this match-up. Rusev demanded a world title shot for the Money In The Bank even a while back. Rusev will most likely be lurking, looking to cause some trouble. That can either play in Jinder’s favor or not.
But seriously, I don’t see WWE taking the strap off of Jinder so soon. I mean, what would be the point of giving him the title if they’re just going to knock him back down. “The Viper” might as well sit this one out.
