It was made official on this week's show. Roman Reigns will go one-on-one with Jinder Mahal in a singles match at Money in the Bank. The last time Reigns wrestled on pay-per-view against Samoa Joe, he was booed quite mercilessly. Will he fare differently this time?

Jinder Mahal has a chance to establish himself as a top superstar on RAW by competing with Roman Reigns. It will be interesting to see whom the crowd roots for during the match. Neither man has been a particular favourite of the WWE Universe.

I will discuss 5 ways this match could play out at Money in the Bank. Be sure to leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.

If booked right, this has the potential to be a very interesting match.


#5 Double turn, Reigns cheats to win

Could we see Reigns snap and tap into his dark side?

WWE has tried almost everything with Reigns. The crowd simply won't buy into the idea of him as the face of the company. So much so, that in London, Mahal got cheered over Reigns. Bear in mind that Mahal was the most hated heel on SmackDown Live.

Could we see a double turn during their match at Money in the Bank? Could we see Mahal wrestling by the rules and Reigns cheating to win, thereby becoming a heel? Fans have wanted Reigns to go heel for a while now, because then the crowd would naturally boo for the man!

An even tougher task may be to convincingly sell the idea of Jinder Mahal as a babyface to the WWE Universe. While he did get cheered against Reigns, he'll get booed versus almost any other opponent.
