Money in the Bank 2019: 5 Mistakes that WWE cannot make at Money in the Bank
While WrestleMania 35 and the Superstar Shake Up essentially rebooted the entire company in terms of champions and roster moves, the first PPV to follow both events is Money in the Bank.
MITB is already one of the most anticipated shows of the year due to the unpredictability of the ladder matches. It also allows the potential for different stars to move one step closer to becoming top champions in the company.
WWE needs to really hit a home run with the first PPV after 'Mania and there are several things that could help the company going forward. Choosing the right people to win the briefcases is the first thing that WWE will either completely muffle or hit the mark.
Matches like the women's title matches and the WWE and Universal Championship matches could have outcomes that potentially hinder the WWE even further if champions lose the titles they just recently won. Since the WWE needs to nail practically every match this Sunday, here are five mistakes that WWE cannot afford to make at the Money in the Bank PPV.
# 5 Kofi Kingston and/or Seth Rollins lose titles
Both Kingston and Rollins won their titles at WrestleMania 35. That was a month ago. Since they both literally became champions a little over a month ago, it would be detrimental to both men to book have either champion drop their title.
WWE invested several months in building up the story behind Kingston's journey to the title. He finally reached the top of the mountain after 11 years in the company. And as for Rollins, his storyline practically lasted throughout the entirety of 2018 as Brock Lesnar held the Universal Championship.
Beating Lesnar was a huge milestone in WWE history and the man who was picked to beat him was not going to be taken lightly. It's why only Rollins and Roman Reigns have been allowed to topple 'the Beast' over the last year.
Having either Kingston or Rollins lose their titles in any fashion at MITB would damage the credibility of either man and is something that should happen much later in the year. The shock value of a cash-in would be a surprise, but not all surprises are good.
