7 early picks to win the 2017 Money in the Bank Ladder Match

The winner holds the key to their own destiny.

The winner gets a shot at Smackdowns top prize!

We are roughly two months away from one of the most exciting and pivotal pay-per-view events of the year – WWE Money In The Bank 2017. The Money in the Bank ladder match is a concept that actually began in 2005, at Wrestlemania 21 when Edge became the first person to ever scale the ladder and claim the briefcase, which guaranteed him a shot at the WWE title.

Since it’s inception, the Money In The Bank contest has turned into a complete spectacle of its own and in 2010, the concept became a pay-per-view event. In the years since, Money In The Bank has grown to become one of the most exciting and highly anticipated events on the WWE calendar. since, Money In The Bank has grown to become one of the most exciting and highly anticipated events on the WWE calendar. since, Money In The Bank has grown to become one of the most exciting and highly anticipated events on the WWE calendar. since, Money In The Bank has grown to become one of the most exciting and highly anticipated events on the WWE calendar. since, Money In The Bank has grown to become one of the most exciting and highly anticipated events on the WWE calendar. 

Now that the company is using the split-roster format once again, the pay-per-views alternate between RAW and Smackdown, with Smackdown Live getting exclusive rights to this year's Money in the Bank event. With that in mind, it’s time to start speculating who will most likely climb the ladder and capture the elusive golden ticket known as the Money in the Bank briefcase.

Here's a look at 7 Smackdown Live Superstars that I believe have the best shot at winning this year's Money In The Bank Ladder Match.


#7 Drew McIntyre

He didn't come back to have a 3MB reunion!
 

Sure, this will be a Smackdown Live exclusive event, but who's to say a few rules won't be bent? Do not be at all surprised if Drew McIntyre gets fast-tracked back to the main roster in time to make a surprise appearance as one of the participants in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match. While it may not be the most likely of scenarios, stranger things have indeed happened, especially within the confines of the WWE. 

McIntyre was one of those who was previously released without ever getting the opportunity to showcase his true potential. Don't forget, this is the same guy that Vince McMahon once dubbed “The Chosen One”, and not to mention his success after leaving the company. Drew spent his entire post-WWE run showing the world just how good he was, by winning championships everywhere he went.

Now that he's back, it seems as if Drew McIntyre has a chip on his shoulder, he has a need to prove to everyone that he is better than they perceive him to be. This will be his greatest run of his career, and it could get a huge boost at Money In The Bank.
