    So the wwe championship have former champs and world heavyweight has anyone wow

  • Azza

    wait, damien sandow and ryder havent been world champions, is this going to be a seperate money in the bank or have wwe decided to forget their rule on monday

    • Callum

      That was only for WWE championship!

    • JamieSNZ

      There will be two. One for the WWE title contract, and one for the WHC contract.

    • christopher525

      You DO know they have TWO "World" titles in WWE, right?

  • Jay

    Why the hell isn’t Cody going to be in the MITB match? Both Santino and Christian already hold championships. Bad decision in my opinion.

    • Lin

      They might cash the briefcase in after they lose their championship.

    • RM

      I know. Wouldn't surprise me if Cody Rhodes competed in the Youtube match against probably Sin Cara since WWE Management has apparently lost faith in Cody.

    • Anand

      I dont mind Christian being in the WHC MITB match but Santino? What is he going to do with WHC? Make it a comic relief like the US championship?

      Leaving out Cody will be a really bad idea. The guy is amazing and deserves to be in the match. We still have a couple of weeks to the PPV so maybe WWE will realize this and add him to the match next week

  • Dave Barton

    I'm really hoping this doesn't mean that the SmackDown MITB match is finalized as just Tyson, Damien, Christian, and Santino.

    • Mohammad Abulawi

      you forgot tensi

  • Swanson

    Sandow and Kidd and Christian that’s awesome. The fact Rhodes isnt gonna be in it is kind of a bummer though.

  • Swanson

    Also lame that Ryder isn’t going to be in it.

  • jdl

    Tyson Kidd beat Swagger? Seriously? Sheesh, what did Swagger do? Murder a writer's puppy? Losing to Tyson Kidd when you're a former champion is… I dunno, it's like getting beaten for Prom Queen by a hobo who doesn't even to your high school. Sure, Kidd is a fantastic high flyer, but he's quite literally at the bottom of the totem pole. Same with Sandow, he's not even remotely proven, he hasn't earned the slot, he shouldn't be in it. At least Kidd is established, has a tag title reign and has put in some of his dues regardless of how poorly he's treated at times… but Sandow? That's ridiculous.

    • Ron

      You do know wrestling scripted right and even if he was given a push Damian has far more potential

      • jdl

        Yes, I know wrestling is scripted. Do you know that replying to someone on a forum like this requires reading?

    • Sam

      Maybe it’s just part of the build? It’s not garunteed he’ll win but I guess we’ll just have to wait and see

  • GgT

    Finally Tyson Kidd in the mitt ladder match

  • christopher525

    What the hell, Tyson Kidd in Money in The Bank???? That is interesting as all hell.

  • Shawn

    Wow smack down is so whack such a waste of time and talent… Let them wrestle..wwe creative sucks so much I could do better with my eyes close

  • lbean

    Why is Swagger being buried so much?

    And no Cody Rhodes in the MITB match?

  • KiddFan

    Please, PLEASE, PLEASE!!! WWE let Tyson Kidd win MITB!

  • mike

    unless tyson kidd ended up winning mitb, i would really like that 😀

  • ghopkins13

    Why would they put Sandow over Ryder, they need to stop holding Ryder back.

  • Dave

    People complain when newer superstars dont get pushed.
    People complain when newer superstars get pushed.
    What is WWE to do? Kudos to them for getting Sandow in a big time match. Although I do not see what they must in Tensai, dude is dull as dishwater to me.

  • Alex

    Why are Justin Gabriel and Cody Rhodes not In MITB but Santino and Christian are and they already are champions!

  • Daniel Lim'ass

    What? No Rhodes? Bummer!

  • Brandon

    World Heavyweight Championship Money In The Bank seems kinda interesting. Five superstars involved already though no Cody Rhodes which is a big letdown.

  • jonathon212

    so wwe mitb is full of past champions who are all boring except jericho and world heavyweight mitb is full of jobbers…uh great job wwe

    • lukeheffernan

      Christian and Sandow are both clearly jobbers. Do you even know what a jobber is?

  • Ace

    What no Cody Rhodes. You serious. He was my pick to win it all.

  • WyFo

    Maybe Ryback should be in the match. Kinda bummed Rhodes isn’t in it. And Santino? Come on! Like Santino is gonna win it. Out of the people in the match already, the only one I want to win is Kidd.

  • Hunter

    Teddy back to making tag team matches, playa! It’s cool to see Kidd get a win and be a part of MITB. AJ as special guest ref should be interesting

    • bradly

      lol teddy has a fetish for tag team matches

  • Adam W.

    I'm a assuming the Money in the Bank these people are being put in are for the World Heavyweight Championship, but I'm unsure. Will it be two separate brands like last years? They don't like to make things easy on us, eh?

  • Yoyoyo

    You people need to stop jumping to conclusions weeks before a PPV and let the storylines play out.. remember.. Card subject to change

  • SDD619

    Its going to be a tag team match next week

  • H.M.

    "In addition, Vickie announces that, over the next two weeks, there will be qualifying matches for the Smackdown Money in the Bank ladder match."

    Chill out people, we still have some qualifier spots that need to filled out. I have a feeling that after Rhodes attack on Christian the week prior, their little rivalry isn't quite over yet and he'll do something to get in. At least that's how I see it.

    And Tensai in the MITB match? Interesting.

    I think it's clear that Swagger's being humbled right now. I honestly stopped caring about him – his character is extremely boring. I think we should be happy at the fact that Kidd is in the MITB match and is getting a break more so than Swagger's fall into obscurity.

    • RM

      I think Cody and Christian's feud is over for the time being.

  • buddah5050

    Alright the two jobber thing is officially boring now!! Enough is enough and it’s time for a change!

  • Guzzie1984

    Hopefully thats kidd getting his push that he deserves for his hard work

  • JJ

    Hopefully they reverse all the decisions in the qualifiers. It should be Ryder, Swagger, Otunga, Rhodes, and Gabriel. Too bad the winner will return next week in Wade Barrett.

  • Razmos01

    You dont ever get many people leaving positive comments, why so negative, let story lines play out guys, cody will somehow find his way in the match, im surprised nobody mentioned the fact Tensai was in MITB match

    • A.C.

      Hey, give it time – Tensai will be a grand slam champion no matter how much we don't want it to happen.

  • Robert olley

    Tyson kidds is the 3rd best wrestler in wwe and I think Damien sandow is gona win mitb

  • They should replace santino with sin cara

  • Chad

    I thought Tyson Kidd quit. And what is Ryder a smack down superstar

  • Steve l

    Santino wins becomes first MITB winner that fails to cash in.

  • Steve l

    Actualy Cody will get in je woild be the perfect guyvto win ot this is just the stepping stome he needs to get into the main event

  • christopher525

    I've got a feeling Swagger will get into the other MiTB match, as well as Ziggler, and possibly Rey, they never said it'd only be 4 people and they're both former champs. At some point a battle royal will be held for the last spot in the Smackdown ladder match and either someone returning will take it, or Cody will slip in through that. I'm still baffled by Santino being put in, not because he's a champion, but because he's a joke. It's a damn shame McIntyre is being held back while a joke like Santino gets to be a title holder AND get into MiTB. Also sucks that Barrett isn't here to take the case.

  • wrldindsk89

    I’m not going to bash the card for the world title MITB yet… if there’s more qualifying matches next week like this says, it wouldn’t surprise me if Rhodes is added.

  • Wes

    Swagger can’t be in raw Mitb it’s for former wwe champs. Just release swagger already he’s worthless. It was fails experiment partnering him with Vickie. He did nothing but hold dolph back just cut him no one would miss him

  • So, I ask: who is in the Smackdown Money in the Bank ladder match?!?! You have both the US Champ and IC Champ in there, Tensai, Tyson Kidd, and Damien Sandow. Kidd I get. You need a guy who can do dangerous spots. Sandow is an up and comer. Tensai I could care less about and hope he doesn't win. Christian I get. He's experienced in ladder matches and can be a ring general in the match. But Santino? Money in the Bank looks disappointing to me.

  • Eddie

    For everybody complaining about Cody Rhodes not being in it dont forget three spots left open meaning it could be for Cody Sin Cara and some one else like Dolph or Alberto
