WWE Money in the Bank is less than two months away, as WWE hits Las Vegas for its next big stadium show.
Taking place at Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, Nevada on July 2, the annual show will give two more superstars the chance to win a contract that will guarantee them a world title at all times.
Yesterday we looked at five favorites for the men’s Money in the Bank match, but who is in contention for the women?
GiveMeSport takes a look at five possible contenders for this year’s Money in the Bank women’s match.
With Sasha Banks busy with Naomi in the ranks, SmackDown is calling for another big babyface in the women’s division, and they’re not coming on the mark much more than Big Mami Cool. Now that Charlotte Flair will be off our screens for the foreseeable future, WWE would be wise to turn Ronda Rousey’s heel and create a roster of believable faces for her to compete against – with Rodriguez front and center.
To get her there though, and to build some credibility for the blue brand for fans who haven’t seen her great work on NXT, having Raquel dominate a Money in the Bank match and then win the briefcase would be a solid way to do it. To do. Given the good story as well, maybe once they warm up to Women’s Champion Rousey again, her cashing wouldn’t have to be the ‘noble’ match request we often see from match-winning faces. . Rodriguez is bad enough to cash in the traditional way while still staying true to her character.
New to Monday Night Raw and somewhat surprisingly positioned as a heel, Lacey adds something new to the women’s division, especially with her new personality. After ditching the Southern Belle look and swapping it out for a more realistic character that plays on her upbringing and time with the Marines, this Lacey Evans looks like she might finally reach the top of the WWE tree and it could start with a win in the Women’s Money in the Bank match.
WWE has a mega babyface star in Bianca Belair as champion, so a new heel with a chip on her shoulder and a briefcase under her arm would be something the WWE EST has yet to face in her reign. of championship. This means Evans could continue to establish herself in feuds away from the title, then when the time is right and she’s finally ready to win championship gold, a ready-made rivalry and match awaits. the two stars.
There seems to be plenty of stock in Liv Morgan, who rarely misses TV time on Raw, but she has yet to get her hands on that title. What she’s almost become by default is the underdog of the women’s division, which seems to be constantly thwarted in her attempts to win championship gold in WWE. Her bid for the Women’s Tag Team Titles ended when her partner, Rhea Ripley, turned against her after WrestleMania, and it’s the latest in a series of setbacks for a star that fans and peers believe were destined. to be champion.
We saw at last year’s event that an underdog winner can be a popular pick, and Morgan already carries more weight with fans than Nikki ASH’s short-lived run as Raw Champion, and it would give his character a new edge that he may have lacked in the past. Or to really spice up the division, would a win for Liv see her cash in the night and really throw a blue-eyed wrench in the works for Raw’s female heavyweight stars.
Back in the WWE fold and back almost looking like his old self. We’re not sure which version of Alexa we have in our hands now, but there’s more “Goddess” Bliss in the presentation than we’ve seen in a long time. What we definitely haven’t seen in a long time – too long in fact – is Miss Bliss in the mix for the World Championships.
Alexa was the first female star to win the Raw and SmackDown titles and it’s time we saw her lift gold behind her head again, like only she can. She’s tasted victory in a Money in the Bank match before, cashing in on the night to upset Ronda Rousey’s first run in WWE and another victory, and a longer run with the case would add another layer to someone. ‘one that’s all about character.
Like his new stablemate Damian Priest, Ripley has someone in his corner who knows all about winning a Money in the Bank match, with Edge the concept’s first winner in 2005. Now as the leader of The Judgment Day, what better way for the new faction to dominate Monday Night Raw than to see their two members holding Money in the Bank briefcases. This would add an element of real danger to the group and is something that hasn’t been done with the Money in the Bank concept before – often a problem after more than fifteen years of annual matches.
For Ripley, too, it’s quickly getting her back into the world title picture, having been moved into a tag team gig pretty much since she dropped the Raw Women’s Championship to Charlotte Flair on the MITB show. ‘last year. For too long, Raw has lacked a formidable faction and what could be more formidable than a group led by a Hall of Famer who, at any moment, can change the brand landscape by cashing in on a new world champion.
