I don't think WWE has ever been more exciting.
If many of you WWE fans out there remember, a few years ago right after Wrestlemania 31, WWE took part in a massive women's revolution that took place around a few different entertainment industries, such as multiple sports teams, movies, and other entertainment brands. WWE, as of NXT Takeover: Chicago, which took place on May 20, 2017, has officially gotten rid of all of their pink-colored women's title belts, and replaced all the belts with new ones that look just like the ones male superstars wear. The other thing that's changed is that the women of WWE are no longer called "Divas" (except for on E!s "Total Divas") instead they are now called "Women" or "Women Superstars" and some pretty awesome matches took place over the past year, and not only did these women push themselves to the limit, but they also looked good doing it.
As we all know, the Money in the Bank match is a match that takes place every year, which used to take place at Wrestlemania, but now takes place at its own exclusive PPV named after the match. It's every man (or in this case, woman) for him (or her) self, and the goal is to get one of about fifty ladders around the ring and basically beat each other to death over a briefcase. Now, to those reading this just because your BFF shared it on Facebook or Twitter, I know it sounds stupid, however, the briefcase has a meaning: The briefcase can be used anytime for up to one year, and when used, or "cashed in" on a champion, the championship must be defended at that place at that time. Now that we've gotten that out of the way, let's go over a few things, and then I will make my predictions.
The way that Money in the Bank works is that there are six or seven (maybe even eight) participants. However in this case (so far) there are only five participants: Tamina Snuka, daughter of WWE Legend and Hall of Famer Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka (Rest in Peace), Natalya Hart, daughter of Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart and neice of WWE legend and Hall of Famer Bret "The Hitman" Hart, Charlotte Flair, daughter of the 16-time world champion, WWE Legend and Hall of Famer Ric Flair, Carmella, and Becky Lynch. Of course, having Carmella in this match would mean a very awkward and unwelcome appearance by the ever-so-popular babyfaced scumbag, James Ellsworth, who will likely come across as a douchebag who finally grew a pair big enough to push a woman off a ladder, and will later be suspected to be Bruce Jenner in disguise, trying to get on WWE TV. On the June 20th episode of "205 Live" James Ellsworth will join the Cruiserweights for a WWE Network Exclusive interview with "Gentleman" Jack Gallagher, who will lecture Ellsworth over tea over how to properly be a gentleman. This will likely, of course, end in a pillow fight until Big Cass makes a special appearance to rip James Ellsworth limb by limb for coming onto his girlfriend.
Now, just a reminder: These women will be climbing ladders, and falling off ladders. In the past year, we've seen women's steel cage matches, a women's Hell in a Cell match (which, if you never saw the actual match you need to go watch NOW), the upcoming Kendo Stick on a Pole match between Bayley and Alexa Bliss (which will likely end with the non-surprising but still awful win from Alexa Bliss) and it's amazing to see how far WWE has come over the past few years, from "Bikini Battle Royals" and the Romance (which is coming back) and all those Playboy "___ on a Pole" matches to a Kendo Stick hanging from a pole, and while its clear that RAW hasn't improved much more than switching that item on a pole, what is clear is that Shane McMahon is doing a hell of a job with Smackdown. The roster isn't that great, but the matches make up for it. And in my opinion, with the roster given, it is very clear to me that the participants for this match were well chosen. With that, let me make my predictions for this match.
Who's the 6th participant?
Besides the already amazing five women chosen for this match, there are still a few more women both on the SmackDown roster, and those who are expected to make a return soon, who could very well be the final participant in this match, because to really make history is to follow tradition and have six participants in the match, and since Naomi is the current champion, it would not make sense to have her in this match as it would be obvious she would have to lose the match. Here are some women I think could make a return in this match
How do you think this year's Women's Money in the Bank match will end? Comment down below with your predictions and don't forget to subscribe to the WWE Network (which, by the way, is only ....... *everyone* "9.99!!!") and watch Money in the Bank on June 18th, because now this PPV will be truly amazing.
