5 Best options to become 'Mr Money in the Bank'
With the so-called new season of WWE beginning post WrestleMania, It is time to start predicting the directions that the top Superstars might follow and the storylines that will unfold. The build will begin to the second biggest show of the year, SummerSlam. There are three PPV events before SummerSlam, one being Money in the Bank.
The Money in the Bank Ladder Match is one of the key components of the WWE year that gives us a view into the future. It addresses the questions like which Superstar is destined to head to the next level, or which established wrestler is ready to make way for the World Championship.
With WrestleMania 34 in the history books and the Superstar Shakeup on the horizon, these are the five best candidates to become the Mr. Money in the Bank, 2018.
#5 Finn Balor
There are a variety of ways for Superstars to capture their first world championship opportunity. The Money in the Bank concept needs to fit the character that guarantees a successful payoff.
An example of a character that does not fit the Money in the Bank concept would be Braun Strowman. Whilst he should certainly be favourite should he find himself in the match, he never should be placed in the match.
His strength and larger than life persona suit a more traditional chase to the World Championship, when he can earn his opportunities through wins and eventually bag the title. This does not mean that Superstars earning their Championship via the cashing-in their MITB briefcase are weaker, but as mentioned, it needs to suit the character.
Finn Balor is a perfect example of a character that is well suited to capture the Money in the Bank Briefcase. His quick and lethal offence is much suited to the Ladder match and a character that the WWE Universe would be thoroughly behind when cashing in on a World Champion. Due to his slightly lesser build which may have unfairly held him back in the past, this would be the perfect avenue to the next level for Balor.
