Rumor: We Could See A WrestleMania Rematch At SummerSlam

Now that Money in the Bank is officially behind us, we can all look forward to tomorrow’s Raw show, where Roman Reigns will make a big announcement regarding his plans for this year’s SummerSlam.


According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE wants to “plant seeds’ for a Roman Reigns vs. Undertaker match at SummerSlam. The Observer also noted that the match isn’t confirmed, but they want fans to think that we’re going to see a WrestleMania rematch this August.

WWE is planning on making SummerSlam bigger than ever this year, so don’t be surprised to see some of the “part timers” come out of the woodwork for the event. It already looks like we’re going to see Kurt Angle vs. Triple H on the show, which is huge. And if they’re able to add Undertaker to the show, they’d likely accomplish their goal of making this year’s SummerSlam the biggest one yet.

Rumor: Daniel Bryan to Make Major Announcement on Tuesday

YES…..MAYBE! Daniel Bryan has been off WWE TV as of late as his wife Brie Bella gave birth to their daughter last month. Now it’s time for him to make his return to “Smackdown Live” this coming week, and as luck would have it he’s coming back with something special to do.


According to F4Wonline.com by way of Wrestlinginc.com, Bryan will be coming back to make a special announcement for “Summerslam 2017”. While there is no word on what the announcement is going to be, it is going to be designed to help make the show feel like a much bigger deal, which is a major priority for WWE this year.

Opinion: I’m not sure what Bryan’s announcement is going to be but I can’t imagine it’s going to be him getting back in the ring. That ship seems to have sailed and I don’t think it’s ever going to happen again. Maybe it’s going to be announcing a match for “Summerslam 2017”, just not one with him involved.

Who is Mr. Money in the Bank?

The lone owner. The Money in the Bank briefcase has become one of the most used way to make someone a World Champion. While it might not always be the most interesting story, it does have quite the track record and is a great way to launch someone from the midcard to the main event scene. The question this year was the same as always: who would be making the jump this time around?


As it turns out, Baron Corbin won the briefcase, defeating Shinsuke Nakamura, Sami Zayn, AJ Styles, Dolph Ziggler and Kevin Owens to become Mr. Money in the Bank. Corbin attacked Nakamura before the match began and then shoved both he and Styles off the ladder to win. This is Corbin’s first Money in the Bank win.

Opinion: Corbin was the best option here and there’s nothing wrong with that. It makes more sense to have the briefcase go to a heel as you can only have a face try to sneak attack a champion so many times without making them look heelish. Corbin makes sense for something like this and that’s a good thing for his future.

Did you like the idea of Corbin winning the briefcase? When do you think he’ll cash it in?

Finn Balor Discusses Where “The Demon King” Has Been


Finn Balor has quickly become one of the faces of the WWE since his rise to stardom last year. He is the longest holder of the NXT championship title, is a former holder of the WWE Universal title, and was recently named the sexiest man in professional wrestling by Pro Wrestling Illustrated. Despite all these accolades, however, Balor has remained humble.

Last week found Balor in Singapore to promote the WWE’s upcoming show in the Singapore Indoor Stadium on June 28th. Singapore’s leading newspaper, The Straits Times, caught up with him to speak about his career. He spoke of his training in both the UK and Japan, stating:

“There’s a lot of attention to detail. It’s almost like I was trained twice.”  He also went on to say that his training in Japan, “developed into a cultured human being and kept myself on an even keel with everything I’m doing now in WWE.”

He also discussed his usage of the Demon King gimmick, and its lack of usage recently. He stated:

“In recent times, I haven’t been put in a situation whereby I needed to draw on that power. I’m sure in the future that will be something that will be needed,” alluding to the likelihood that it might see a comeback soon.

Mike and Maria Kanellis Make Their WWE Debuts


Put a little love in your Smackdown. As is so often the case, WWE has added a few more names to their already lengthy roster. In this case it’s a man and a woman who happen to be married outside the ring. The pair was rumored to come to WWE for a long time now and they made their debut at “Money in the Bank 2017”.

At the pay per view, Mike and Maria Kanellis made their debuts in a quick segment. The name Bennett, which Mike has wrestled under for his entire career, was never mentioned. The pair’s gimmick seems to be that they love each other very much and want to show the WWE the power of love. After Maria spoke about it for a bit, the two danced as a love song played.

Opinion: The fact that they were both introduced with the last name Kanellis tells you all you need to know about Mike’s value. Maria always did seem like the bigger star of the team and she’ll have a little name value to her. I’m not sure how far their gimmick is going to go but it’s better than toiling in Impact Wrestling.

Which of the two are you more interested in? How far do you think they’ll go? Let us know in the comments below.

Who is Miss Money in the Bank?

To the pay window! This year’s “Money in the Bank 2017” pay per view featured the first ever women’s Money in the Bank ladder match. After the Women’s Revolution took the company by storm last year, this is quite the milestone for the division and wrestling as a whole. That just leaves the big question of who won the thing.


As it turns out, Carmella became the first Miss Money in the Bank as she defeated Natalya, Charlotte, Tamina and Becky Lynch to win the briefcase. The ending was a bit controversial though as James Ellsworth was the one to climb the ladder and throw the case down to Carmella, which was ruled as a fair victory.

Opinion: Really bad ending aside, this was the pick that a lot of people had and it’s not the biggest surprise. Carmella is someone who could be a big player and seems like a natural heel, which is something the division can always need. Charlotte and Lynch will be back and the other two aren’t likely to ever get near the title.

Money in the Bank 2017 Live Coverage

Join the live coverage!

Money in the Bank 2017
Date: June 18, 2017
Location: Scottrade Center, St. Louis, Missouri
Commentators: Tom Phillips, John Bradshaw Layfield, Byron Saxton

It’s time to climb. Tonight is all about the ladders and the briefcases, which could be cashed in tonight, assuming we have a bit of luck. This has the potential to be an interesting show with a five match card, though two of them are major ladder matches whose entrances alone will take about ten minutes. Let’s get to it.

Kickoff Show: Hype Bros vs. Colons

This is the Hype Bros’ first match since December after Zack Ryder’s knee injury. Epico shoulders Ryder down to start but the Bros take over without much effort. Primo decides to slap Mojo in the face, which just fires him up. The Colons get in a shot to Ryder’s knee though and we take a break. Back with Ryder’s knee still in trouble until a neckbreaker drops Primo. The hot tag brings in Mojo for Hyperdrive (something like a release F5) and the running punch in the corner. The Hype Ryder is good for the pin on Primo at 8:11.

Result: Hype Bros b. Colons – Hype Ryder to Primo (8:11)

Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match Odds

Tonight, WWE will continue to make history in the women’s division, as the first-ever women’s Money in the Bank ladder match will take place. As of right now, there are five announced participants — Charlotte Flair, Tamina Snuka, Natalya, Becky Lynch, and Carmella — however, it’s being rumored that there will be one more participant added to the match during tonight’s show.


It’s been reported that former TNA and Ring of Honor couple Mike Bennett and Maria Kanellis are in St. Louis, and they could make an appearance during tonight’s show. It’s also being reported that Maria will be added to the women’s Money in the Bank match tonight. However, as of right now, she’s not being listed in the latest odds, which you can check out below.

  • Carmella (-245)
  • Charlotte Flair (+350)
  • Natalya (+650)
  • Becky Lynch (+900)
  • Tamina Snuka (+5000)

Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match Odds

At tonight’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view, we’ll see two MITB ladder matches, one involving the men, and one involving the women, and if you look at the odds, you’ll likely be disappointed with who the two favorites are. But, for now, let’s just stick with the men’s match.


Earlier this week, WWE teased a Shinsuke Nakamura Money in the Bank win, however, the odds suggest that their current plan, which involved Baron Corbin winning the briefcase, is the plan they’re going with tonight. You can check out the odds, which are courtesy of Five Dimes, below.

  • Baron Corbin (-300)
  • Shinsuke Nakamura (+500)
  • Sami Zayn (+1150)
  • AJ Styles (+1200)
  • Kevin Owens (+2000)
  • Dolph Ziggler (+5500)

The prospect of having a show where Jinder Mahal is the champion, while Baron Corbin holds the MITB briefcase is absolutely terrifying. However, if Corbin does win, he probably won’t cash in on Jinder, unless WWE is planning on making him a babyface, which, most likely, wouldn’t work at all.

WWE Money in the Bank Odds: Jinder Mahal Vs. Randy Orton

Tonight’s Money in the Bank show will take place in St. Louis, Missouri, which is the hometown of Randy Orton, who is set to challenge Jinder Mahal for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship on the show.


According to Five Dimes, Randy Orton is a significant underdog, so it looks like the former champ won’t be able to please his hometown fans tonight. You can check out the odds below.

  • Jinder Mahal (-9000)
  • Randy Orton (+500)

As for what’s next for Mahal following the Orton match, well, it’s being rumored that he’s going to feud with John Cena for the rest of the summer. So, it looks like this could be the final match in the Orton vs. Jinder program, as Cena is scheduled to return within the next couple of weeks.
