While the Money in the Bank ladder match for a WWE Championship contract (quite a mouthful) might boast four of the most successful main eventers in the company, a lot of eyes will be firmly focused on the World Heavyweight Title contract MITB match.
While I’m not arguing that the match between Kane, Big Show, Chris Jericho and John Cena will be dull, all four are seasoned veterans who have battled for the WWE Championship on numerous occasions.
On the other hand, none of the eight participants in the other MITB match are consistent main eventers, making the result hard to predict and all the more interesting.
This is a great opportunity for one of them to take the step up to the next level and possibly win the World Heavyweight Championship. But who would this opportunity benefit the most?
Since the start of 2012, the ‘Show-Off’ has been on the brink of a major breakthrough. Ziggler may have been awarded the title in 2011, before losing it on the same night, but many believe his time has come to have lengthy run with one of the WWE’s top titles.
Ziggler has proved himself a great all-rounder, coming on leaps and bounds in the last year, and it’s become noticeable that he’s garnered a following. The crowd erupted when he pinned Christian and became a number one contender several weeks ago on Raw, perhaps showing that the audience is ready for Ziggler to become a main eventer.
If there was any reason for Ziggler not to win MITB, it would be that even if he isn’t triumphant it probably wouldn’t be long before a successful title challenge. Therefore the opportunity may be better suited to someone who needs a push to reach that title scene.
