wwemitbbanner
Think you know what’s going to happen at tomorrow’s Money in the Bank Pay-Per-View event? Prove it by testing your predictive mettle against Dave and make your mark on the next Cheap Popcast episode!

Hey all! If you haven’t heard the latest Cheap Popcast, I brought up a new element to spice up future episode recordings. Namely, predictions pieces! Wrestling fans like to think they’re in the know, and what better way to prove it than by testing your predictive mettle against me! Here’s how it goes. I’m going to make my predictions in this here article, and then open up the replies to you awesome listeners. You will then pick a winner for each match (including methods of victory and specific situations for tag matches just as I do), and then, just in case there’s a tie for correct predictions, pick a running time for the final match listed (the presumed main event) as a tiebreaker.

What does the winner get? Well, you can make your mark on the next Cheap Popcast episode by choosing the next show’s closing theme. Pick the wrestler theme and include a YouTube URL to a wrestler’s theme alongside your predictions and I’ll give you a shout-out before throwing to our episode-ender. Perhaps we’ll make the prize bigger for future predictions pieces, but this is a fun way to start. Alright? Let’s kick off the predictions, then!

TAG TITLE MATCH: THE USOS VS. THE SHIELD (CHAMPS)
Poor Usos. They’ve been in the WWE for YEARS, and still haven’t won the tag straps, despite the fact that they’re the purest tag team on the roster (twin brothers!). They won’t win here, especially if it’s on the pre-show, but hopefully this will lead to a longer-running angle where the bros win big. Roman Reigns pins Jimmy Uso, Shield retains.

CHRIS JERICHO VS. RYBACK
What’s Jericho’s winning percentage since he returned before the Royal Rumble last year? It’s gotta be under 25%. Y2J is teflon, so he’ll drop this one so that Ryback can prove he’s a monster once more. Ryback pins Chris Jericho.

DIVAS TITLE MATCH: AJ (CHAMP) VS. KAITLYN
I liked AJ and Kaitlyn’s match at Payback, and I like the template of these two former friends hating each other (I could do without fat jokes and slut accusations, though). It’s easily the best Divas title angle in years, so it’d be foolish to end it so soon. Kaitlyn’s retribution should wait until Summerslam, so AJ makes Kaitlyn tap out to retain.

INTERCONTINENTAL TITLE MATCH: THE MIZ VS. CURTIS AXEL (CHAMP)
Axel still needs to look strong for a few more weeks, and The Miz doesn’t need his 15th IC title reign of this decade. Axel pins Miz to retain.

HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MONEY IN THE BANK MATCH
While I like the concept of a briefcase-toting Fandango dancing to the ring to cash in, it’s too early for him. Ambrose too. I see the two power duos (Cesaro-Swagger and Sandow-Rhodes) bickering enough for Barrett to finally break through to the next level (as he was rumored to be primed for an MitB win back in 2011 before an injury). Barrett snags the briefcase.

MONEY IN THE BANK ALL-STARS MATCH
There will probably be a replacement for Kane, but short of The Rock returning, I don’t think that person will win. RVD’s contract is reportedly part-time for he ain’t getting it either. Sheamus and Orton don’t need a win, Christian needs one but won’t get it, and Brock will neutralize Punk. Bryan’s on a roll and needs just a *tiny* nudge to get back into the championship fold, so Bryan snags the briefcase.

HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE MATCH: DOLPH ZIGGLER VS. ALBERTO DEL RIO (CHAMP)
Boy, I hope the WWE doesn’t try to stretch this one out another month. I do like the idea of Ziggler winning the title by pin, then once again suffering a super-short reign as he’s cashed in against. Eh, maybe not. Even I don’t think Barrett will get that quick a push. I won’t bold that second half, then.

HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE MATCH: MARK HENRY VS. JOHN CENA (CHAMP)
Still too early for the WWE to take the main strap off of Cena, and there’s no way Henry main-events Summerslam, so I say Cena pins Henry to retain in a 15:45 match.

Alright, there’s my picks. Sound off below with your match predictions, (including the exact combination in the tag match and the Cena-Henry running time) as well as a YouTube link to your wrestler theme pick. Good luck, everyone!

  1. The Shield – Top rope knee from Reigns to Jimmy Uso then pin.
    Ryback – Ryback Shell shocks Y2J then pins.
    Kaitlyn – Big E betrays AJ somehow.
    Axel – Perfectplex for the win.
    Sandow – Sandow and Rhodes top ladder. Rhodes steps down to let his bff win.
    CM Punk – Brock Lesnar interferes leaves bodies everywhere.
    Mark Henry – Swan song title run. I’m a price is right you 15:46
    Outro Eddie Guerrero Latino Heat

    1. Forgot Ziggler vs Del Rio. Aj is going to go crazy because she lost title and distract Ziggler and Ricky Rod hits Ziggler with a non acoustic guitar . Del Rio pins Ziggler after match shreds solo on said guitar.

  2. Ok Shield wins by Reigns pining Jey. Jericho wins by making Ryback tap with the Walls of Jericho. They keep playing up Ryback’s knee. Kaitlyn pins Aj . Axel pins Miz. Screw it Fandango gets the case for some reason. Bryan wins the second case. Dolph pins Del Rio. Mark Henry pins Cena. Bryan cashes in the case against Henry and wins. Not going to happen this way but I would find it funny if it did.

  3. 1. Reigns pins Jay Uso to retain
    2. Ryback pins Jericho
    3. Kaitlyn pins AJ (they want to get the strap on the Bellas for the E show and they’re heels so they’ll pin the face champ Kaitlyn in the future)
    4. Axel pins Miz with Heyman interference
    5. Swagger wins because I think he was in line to pin Del Rio back at Mania but then he had his arrest. Ambrose doesn’t need it, Cesaro and Fandango and Cody and Sandow are all too low tier to get pushed so hard right now (while I think Rhodes is the future the WWE does not feel the same way, they never have) Barrett could win it but Vince likes the Zeb Colter angle to much to let it go out with a wimper.
    6. Orton wins, he hasn’t won MITB yet and has been very patient in not being champ for so long. Bryan winning makes sense but his losing gives him something to do, whereas if Orton losses he will be as aimless as ever.
    7. Del Rio pins in a fluke fashion setting up the Ziggler AJ split. If AJ wins her match Dolph wins his.
    8. To be different I’ll say Henry wins in 20 minutes. Vince likes big men and Henry has served the company well over the years. He’s on his way out so it would be a nice gesture of thanks to give Henry the belt er, championship on his way out. Cena can win it back at Summerslam.

  4. 1) Rollins pins Jimmy
    2) Ryback pins Jericho
    3) AJ pins Kaitlyn because Langston is distracting her
    4) Miz wins by DQ because Paul Heyman hits him with the IC Title
    5) Barrett wins the briefcase
    6) Bryan wins the briefcase after CM Punk gets attacked by Brock Lesnar, Big Show replaces Kane
    7) Dolph pins Del Rio but Barrett cashes in on him, Dolph and AJ break-up with Langston adding insult to injury, AJ starts dating Del Rio
    8) Mark Henry wins by pinfall, the match lasts 18:30

  5. 1.) Rollins pins Jay Uso after using his curbstomp style finisher
    2.) Ryback over Jericho
    3.) Aj makes Kaitlyn tap
    4.) Axel over The Miz
    5.) Cody Rhodes wins the Briefcase
    6.) Bryan, because it kind of makes sense…though I think Sheamus could win
    7.) Ziggler goes over Del Rio
    8.) Cena over Henry at 20:30. Show ends with Bryan staring down Cena.

  6. 1 – Romain Reigns pins Jay Uso because jay is gonna be on total divas so gotta keep him strong
    2 – Ryback pins Jericho because he is leaving to go on tour with fozzy
    3 – Kaitlyn pins Aj after the spear
    4 – Curtis Axel pins the miz he needs a legit win no shenanigans
    5 – I think Cody Rhodes will get the briefcase although I would love Claudio/Cesaro to win but it’s to early for him maybe after him and el generic/Sami Zayn on nxt gets shown he’ll get a push even a little one
    6 – Brian gets the briefcase beats cena at summerslam punk wins the rumble brian punk at mania.It’s fun to dream.
    7 – Dolph pins Del Rio because wwe realizes no one cares about del rio
    8 – Cena pins henry 20:32

  7. 1. Seth Rollins pins Jimmy Uso – because Usos ain’t going over the Shield (again)
    2. Ryback pins Chris Jericho – because Ryback has looked consistently weak for the last forever, and Jericho is solely there to make guys look good
    3. AJ d. Kaitlyn by submission – tough one, i can’t see Kaitlyn winning but i dunno if it’ll be the same finish as last time
    4. Axel pins The Miz – Might not be a clean one
    5. Barrett wins the blue case – IT’S HIS TIME, DAMMIT
    6. Bryan wins the red case – I mean everything has been building to it, unless they SWERVE us which would totally blow but I don’t know who else they’d have win it
    7. Ziggler pins ADR – yeah
    8. Cena pins Mark Henry in 15:30 – I don’t like it, but I can’t see otherwise
