With Money in the Bank in just a few weeks, it’s time to speculate on who will win this year’s men Money in the Bank match. 

Let’s take an in depth look at each contestant for this year’s Money in the Bank Match, snd see the possible winner, shall we? 

A New Day Member

WWE has been playing this up to where it looks like we will not be having the contestant named until the Money in the Bank PPV. All three men are gifted and have great talents in the ring and on the mic. With rumors and speculations going around recently, it’s leaning towards Big E to be announced for the match. Regardless on who will be picked between the three, I’m expecting a singles push coming for one of these men. As for the match goes itself, I don’t believe we see a win for the New Day member here.

Bobby Roode

Poor Bobby Roode. The man has great talent in the ring, and decent mic skills. His work down in NXT was good, and his character was over like rover. Ever since moving on up to the main roster, Bobby Roode has fell flat. He has gotten lost into the mix, and though it’s nice for him to maybe have some spotlighted moments, I don’t see him getting anywhere near the briefcase or main event push any time soon.

Finn Balor

The first ever Universal Champion, Finn Balor. Coming to WWE was once thought a good idea for Balor, but after his shoulder injury, he just hasn’t been able to crawl himself up the ladder (pun intended) to the main event. I could see Finn being a surprise win here for the Money in the Bank ladder match, but he has had no momentum, and WWE has given their fans no reason to buy into a Balor victory.


The Money in the Bank PPV just so happens to fall on Rusev Day, therefore we will not see Rusev winning the match. Clearly WWE does not want Rusev to be over like he is, and they have bailed on him. This is some of the best work he has done in years and it’s time Rusev gets his chance for a main event push. Unfortunately, I just don’t see that happening anytime until maybe the end of this year.

Kevin Owens 

At this point down the list, we start to discuss the more viable contenders to win the Money in the Bank Match. Kevin Owens is one of the best heels in the company at the moment, and him winning the briefcase could benfit him definitely. I could see him holding onto the briefcase for most of the year before cashing in. Unfortunately, I do not see Kevin Owens winning.

Samoa Joe 

Man, having Joe win this match would be awesome as a fan of his because he is a straight up monster. Looking at the situation, as he is in the top three for me to win the briefcase, I just don’t see it happening. Take a look back in the tract records, almost every big match that Joe has, WWE makes him look out to be a joke. Ever since returning from injury, the booking of Joe has been better. For now, I think it would be best to have him in a feud for the United States Championship, and give him a lengthy run as US Champ.

Braun Strowman 

In most people’s eyes, I think everyone is quick to choose Strowman as their pick to win this match. I see why. WWE has built this man as a beast that cannot be stopped. WWE has their eye on Strowman to be Universal Champion, but at Money in the Bank, I don’t see him winning the ladder match. Sure, he will go on a rampage of destruction, but WWE has a start and stop push on him, and I don’t see it happening here.

The Miz

In my eyes, the true winner couldn’t be any clearer. The Miz is considered a workhorse for WWE, along with Seth Rollins. He truly is the best heel in the company today, and within the past couple years, he has proven why he deserves to be on top. I know Miz has been a Money in the Bank winner before, but this could be the right time for him to go on top. A run with the briefcase could be a ball with him, showboating it whenever he could. My fantasy booking would to have Miz win here, and cash in sometime between Summerslam and Survivor Series. Let him run on top as WWE Champ, and have Daniel Bryan with the Royal Rumble next year. The two could then face at WrestleMania 35 in one of the main show attractions, or possibly main event.
