Money in the Bank 2015 - Smartie Cup Predictions

June 14th, 2015

Predictions

WWE Money in the Bank 2015

Featuring Mike the Ref, Andre C, The Wrestling Mind Brian Hamilton and "MRB 1.5" Ryan Passmore

 

R-Truth vs. King Barrett

Mike – R-Truth.  They haven’t booked Barrett strong since he won KOTR.  However, all bets are off if there is another pre-show match on the card.

Andre – King Barret for the win. Why would he loose to R-Truth

Brian – R-Truth

Ryan – Barrett.  He has to win this one.


Money in the Bank Ladder Match

Neville vs. Shaemus vs. Randy Orton vs. Roman Reigns vs. Kane vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. Kofi Kingston

Mike – Reigns.  Thinking Kane maybe to set up a Battleground match, but all signs point to the Golden Boy.

Andre – Roman Reigns wins the Money in the Bank

Brian – Reigns

Ryan – Reigns.  Cause he’s Roman.  Thinking he may turn heel tonight.

 

Divas Championship Match

Nikki Bella (c) vs. Paige

Mike – Nikki Bella.  94 days away from breaking AJ’s record, as well as Paige leaving for Tough Enough tapings.  However, I do see the debut of Charlotte tonight to "change the landscape" as Paige put it.

Andre – Paige. But the question is does it really matter.

Brian – Paige by DQ.  Nikki retains

Ryan – Nikki retains in a good match

 

Intercontinental Title Match

Ryback (c) vs. Big Show

Mike – Big Show.  Saw the Shell Shock on Raw, now the world gets shocked when the Big Slow wins the belt.

Andre – Ryback retains his belt. There is absolutely no reason that The Big Show needs that belt

Brian – Ryback

Ryan – Ryback.  No one really wants to see this match.

 

Non-Title Match

John Cena vs. Kevin Owens

Mike – Owens.  Wins clean here.  Cena going nuts after this wanting one more chance, but will not get it until he puts the belt up.  Since Owens will not have a belt after July 4 (losing to Balor in Japan), Owens will want a prize on the line.

Andre – Kevin Owens. The win will probably be a cheap finish.

Brian – Cena

Ryan – Cena.  Will be another great match, and Cena does not lose on consecutive PPV’s

 

Tag Team Championship Match

New Day (c) vs. Prime Time Players

Mike – Prime Time Players.  With Kofi injured after MITB, New Day does not get to use free bird or numbers advantage.  Sets up another title change at Battleground

Andre – The Clappy Crappy Trio retain their titles

Brian – New Day

Ryan – New Day, due to outside interference, with a hot crowd

 

WWE World Heavyweight Championship Ladder Match

Seth Rollins (c) vs. Dean Ambrose

Mike – Rollins remains the champ… At least until the end of match.  May smell a cash in during this match similar to Wrestlemania (both men out and MITB winner enters into a ladder match, a lot easier to win)

Andre – Seth Rollins retains the title.

Brian – Rollins.

Ryan – Rollins.  Could see Ambrose winning title, but not yet

 




Show Record

Mike 5-2

Andre 2-5

Brian 3-4

Ryan 3-4

Overall Record

Mike 20-10-3

Brian 17-14-3

Ryan 16-13-3

Andre 14-16-3
