WWE Money In The Bank 2019: 4 potential winners this year
Now that WrestleMania has come and gone, the WWE has a clean slate to build towards SummerSlam. Creative usually takes a downward turn this time of year as they suffer from what's known as "WrestleMania Hangover".
If you remember last year, WrestleMania was quickly followed by "The Greatest Royal Rumble" and then "Backlash". Both shows were creative disasters. Backlash was main evented by the infamous Samoa Joe/Roman Reigns match that was so boring it caused the crowd to walk out early and started chants of "beat the traffic".
Things were looking better going into Money In The Bank last year when Braun Strowman walked out with the briefcase. WWE are kicking off Post-Mania season this year with MITB, and this leads me to wonder who will walk out of the event with the guaranteed championship match?
I assume it will be a cross-brand match like last year, with superstars from RAW and SmackDown fighting for one case.
With that said, here are my 4 predictions for this year's Money in the Bank winner.
Andrade managed to make a big impact by defeating Finn Balor on Monday night. He could be a major player on the red brand going forward. The WWE has been looking for a new South American star for years and Andrade could be just the guy to fill that spot. His in-ring ability is exceptional, he has a great look and Zelina Vega is a perfect mouthpiece for him.
A good run with the briefcase would really launch him up the card. They could have him hold onto it for a while and put him in a feud with Rey Mysterio for the summer. A heel with the briefcase is perfect for a face champion like Seth Rollins. With Andrade always there waiting to cash in, it will immediately add an extra layer to any story they tell.
