WWE Money in the Bank 2016 Preview: Matches & Predictions

Charlotte and Dana Brooke vs. Natalya and Becky Lynch


Predictions & Winners: Charlotte needs to have someone by her side at all times. She once had her Hall of Famer father singing her praises and helping her win matches, but now she’s ditched him for Emma’s old running mate. Dana Brooke is rolling with her now, but she’s caught the ire of Natalya and Becky Lynch. All that back and forth between all four ladies has led us to this tag team encounter. The babyface lads present here need a big win, in our opinion. Plus we see them transitioning their win into a triple threat match with Charlotte for her title at the next PPV. So count on Natalya and Lynch getting the win, which means we’ll see more dissension between Charlotte and Dana.

John Cena vs. AJ Styles


Predictions & Winner: My, oh my. If someone told us these two wrestling greats would be having a marquee match on the WWE stage, we’d have laughed in your face and tell you to lay off the pipe. But, here we are. Styles has tapped into his inner badass, which is something we enjoyed watching him be during his NJPW run. And it’s the perfect time for him to do so since he’s having his first match with John Cena. Cena’s back to full health and Styles is at the top of his game, so you know this could end up being match of the night. AJ’s running mates will come out at some point during this match and distract Cena. This will result in Styles using this moment to catch Cena off guard and add an extra accomplishment to his already long list: AJ Styles defeated John Cena during his 2016 comeback.

Sami Zayn vs. Cesaro vs. Chris Jericho vs. Dean Ambrose vs. Kevin Owens vs. Alberto Del Rio (Money in the Bank Ladder Match for a WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match Contract)


Predictions & Winner: We have five awesome Superstars here (we don’t care about Del Rio, to be quite honest) for 2016’s official Money in the Bank Ladder Match. This is our 2nd pick for expected match of the evening. There are two guys here that could benefit the most from grabbing the golden briefcase and a future shot at the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. And those two gentleman are Dean Ambrose and Kevin Owens. It’s always fun when a heel has the briefcase, so we think it’d be awesome to see Owens as the new Mr. Money in the Bank. But Ambrose has been a roll lately. He’s gotten big wins over Jericho and he always seems close to getting embroiled in a triple threat feud for the title. We’re going to give it Ambrose here, who we think will cash in his title shot sooner rather than much later.

Roman Reigns (c) vs. Seth Rollins (WWE World Heavyweight Championship)

Money in the Bank 2016

Predictions & Winner: Roman’s most heated rivalry has kicked up once again. Seth Rollins has returned with a vengeance and he’s eyeing the championship he never lost in the ring. These former stable mates will re-enter into a hate filled beef encounter that almost took place at the 2015 Survivor Series. This match will be great, no doubt. But we all know there’s going to be some type of shenanigans involved. We can’t even fathom what will happen during this match’s closing moments, but the end result will come under some type of controversy. We think there’ll be a definitive winner here. This feud has to go on until SummerSlam, so expect to see Reigns and Rollins heading into a special stipulation rematch at the next PPV.
