WWE: Unlikely scenario for Money in the Bank

This Sunday WWE will present it’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view. A blockbuster card is slated as two ladder matches will take place. One will award an up and coming superstar the classic money in the bank contract while the other match will crown a brand new WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

There’s a lot of different directions these matches could go. One scenario, however, would be a huge twist and make for an entertaining storyline. The focus would be on the former members of the Shield.

Let’s look at ladder match number one:

The traditional Money in the Bank ladder match will feature Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose, Dolph Ziggler, Kofi Kingston, Rob Van Dam, Jack Swagger and Bad News Barrett.seth rollins

The main storyline is that Triple H made Rollins the very first entree into the match and didn’t include Ambrose front he start. On Monday’s RAW, after an attack by Ambrose on Rollins, Rollins asked Triple H to put Ambrose in the ladder match so he could get his hands on him. Triple H agreed and said that if anything went wrong, it was on him [Rollins].


While the match features a lot of talented superstars who will be sure to put on an entertaining and exciting ladder match, all eyes will be Rollins and Ambrose. One has to assume one of these two will come away with the briefcase (or Ziggler….please?).

How about this? The match concludes with the two of them on the ladder reaching for the brief case. Ambrose gets the upper hand and comes away as the winner. Mr. Money in the Bank, Dean Ambrose…has a nice ring to it.

This sets Triple H and Rollins off. Rollins will surely seek revenge for Ambrose claiming the contract, it will also put Rollins in hot water with Triple H.

Makes sense, right?

So that’s that and let’s move on to the WWE World Heavyweight Championship ladder match:

This match features, John Cena, Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt, Roman Reigns, Alberto Del Rio, Kane, Sheamus and Cesaro.

A star-studded match, but as mentioned early, this is focusing on the former members of the Shield. So who wins?

Roman Reigns of course.

While Ambrose and Rollins have been going at it during the coming weeks, Reigns has shifted from them to eyeing the gold.

He comes away with his first major title…but not for long.

Ambrose’s music hits. He cashes in the brief case and walks out of the pay-per-view as the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion.Video thumbnail for youtube video WWE: Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose could be legendary | isportsweb

This creates a big ball of hate between all three former members of the Shield. It makes for a interesting angle and puts three of the most popular superstars in the lime light. Ambrose is an unlikely champion, but it could work.

This is a fun theory but it has a lot of flaws, such as where does the story go down the road, where do other names fit into this?

Ultimately whoever walks out of Money in the Bank with the strap will probably hold it until SummerSlam and it would throw some kinks into possible plans for that pay-per-view.

I’m about 99 percent sure this won’t happen, but it’s an interesting angle. If by the one percent chance this does happen, we’re in for a heck of a ride.

What say you, WWE Universe? Like the idea? Hate it? Share your thoughts with me.

    I really wish this article would come true it would be brilliant. Even if ambrose chose not to cash it in right away. Keep feuding with Seth through battleground over ‘stealing’ his win. Then cashes it in on Roman to set off their feud too resulting in a 3 way match between all ex-shield members. Best match ever!

    Cena wins. Economic uncertainty in WWE after Vince’s big money loss means that a sure thing has be champ in order to put butts in seats. Breaking up the Shield was a dumbass move. They were the best thing to happen to the WWE in a decade.
