What a great weekend we have, (some) sports are on! The first event to take place this weekend is UFC 249 followed by WWE's Money in the Bank PPV. This will be WWE's second event since the coronavirus quarantine started. Just like WrestleMania did, MITB will have a slightly new format as well. "Who can climb the corporate ladder" is the motto this year. This year, they will be battling throughout WWE Headquarters. Just like the last event, make sure to CHECK THE RULES.
Every year on the Raw after WrestleMania, there are some surprises. This year saw the return of Nia Jax, who has been out for over a year. She returned in strong fashion by picking up a quick win against Deonna Purrazzo. She has been on a path of destruction since the return, taking out Kairi Sane to qualify for the Money in The Bank match. Even though she is not the odds-on favorite in this match, she is a major player who could end up going the distance to win.
One of the top names to watch in the Men's Money in the Bank is Aleister Black. This would be a major step in his career to take him to the next level. He would have to take out some huge stars on his way to winning, such as AJ Styles, Daniel Bryan, Rey Mysterio, and even the 2017 MITB winner Baron Corbin. Walking into this event, he has favorable odds to win, which should show you he will make it far in the match and even pull off the win.
This will be a fun matchup with "The Monday Night Messiah," Seth Rollins. Unlike his WrestleMania match, this one should end up going a little bit longer. With that being the case, it gives them more of a chance to stock up on points. The most points awarded during this contest come from winning the match itself. This match is the only one that could really be set in stone as to who the winner is. We should not be seeing the title change at this point.
