Money In The Bank Qualifiers, updates, and predictions
WWE Money in the Bank qualifying action began on Monday Night Raw, a day after Hell in a Cell PPV. Here are the results:
Riddle defeated Drew McIntyre
John Morrison defeated Randy Orton
Ricochet defeated AJ Styles
Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross defeated Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler
Asuka & Naomi defeated Eva Marie & Doudrop
In the mens' division, Riddle, Morrison, and Ricochet eliminated former world champions. Each superstar held titles other than a world championship. However, things could change if Jinder Mahal or Cedric Alexander keep their threats and cause a stir in Raw. In the meantime, three Raw superstars clinch their way to Money In the Bank. Who will represent Smackdown?
Here are the possible superstars that can make their way to the MITB Ladder match:
Big E - former 2-time Intercontinental Champion
Cesaro - former United States Champion
Baron Corbin - former United States Champion
Sami Zayn - former 2-time Intercontinental Champion
Jey or Jimmy Uso - former tag team champions
Three of these superstars are more than likely going to clinch their way on Friday Night Smackdown.
On the female side, Alexa Bliss, Nikki Cross, Asuka, and Naomi won their way to the MITB Ladder match. Will there be an additional four superstars or two from Smackdown? While Bayley and Bianca Belair may have their continued feud, here are potential candidates for the MITB:
Carmella, Liv Morgan, or Sasha Banks/Bayley.
The female superstars are at a minimum. Therefore, could there be a possibility that there can be a NXT call up? There has not been much new competition for any titles. WWE can sure use a boost in this division.
MITB Match Cards:
WWE Champion Bobby Lashley vs. Kofi Kingston
WWE Raw Women's Champion Rhea Ripley vs. Charlotte Flair
