2022 WWE WrestleMania Cash within the Financial institution predictions
Seth Rollins vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Sheamus vs. Omos vs. Sami Zayn vs. Riddle vs. Madcap Moss (Males’s Cash within the Financial institution ladder match)
Whereas there are many good decisions right here — McIntyre and Rollins would each make stable briefcase holders — it appears like they blew it with Riddle’s program with Roman Reigns. The group was on hearth for Riddle to knock off Reigns and it actually now’s a match that might carry a pay-per-view along with the long-term drama of Reigns realizing Riddle is biding his time and ready for the proper second to money in. McIntyre is probably going getting his shot at Conflict on the Fortress and Rollins can all the time be slotted into any spot at any time. Riddle, in the meantime, solely has one path to getting even with Reigns, and that is successful Cash within the Financial institution. Decide: Riddle wins — Brent Brookhouse (additionally Shakiel Mahjouri)
Lacey Evans vs. Alexa Bliss vs. Liv Morgan vs. Raquel Rodriguez vs. Asuka vs. Shotzi vs. Becky Lynch (Ladies’s Cash within the Financial institution ladder match)
It appears like Morgan’s time however, frankly, it all the time appears like Morgan’s time. Morgan has a devoted fanbase and has improved noticeably over time. Followers would definitely get behind her Cash within the Financial institution victory and chase for a world title. WWE appears noncommittal on Alexa Bliss. Raquel Rodriguez has been offered effectively since debuting on SmackDown this 12 months and would not want the briefcase fairly but. Asuka and Becky Lynch had been simply within the title image. Shotzi has zero momentum. The one different possibility that stands out is Lacey Evans, whose real-life upbringing has been woven into her face flip. The one hesitation with Evans was her transient character change on Uncooked that WWE shortly walked again on. Liv Morgan all the best way. Decide: Liv Morgan wins — Mahjouri (additionally Brookhouse)
Uncooked Ladies’s Championship — Bianca Belair (c) vs. Carmella
Belair had a full circle second at WrestleMania, defeating Lynch for the title after “The Man” embarrassed her with a brief, one-sided victory ultimately 12 months’s SummerSlam. No disrespect to Carmella, however she shouldn’t be the particular person to dethrone Belair. The “EST” of WWE ought to count on an extended, wholesome reign and solely lose the title when the result has severe which means. Belair and Ronda Rousey retaining their respective ladies’s championships are the surest issues at Cash within the Financial institution. Decide: Bianca Belair retains the title — Mahjouri (additionally Brookhouse)
SmackDown Ladies’s Championship — Ronda Rousey (c) vs. Natalya
Natalya has already beat Rousey convincingly of their battle of promos and social media posts, drilling Rousey on mainly each embarrassing a part of her profession or character. Within the ring shall be a special story. WWE is not even barely contemplating Natalya because the one to take the title off Rousey, who they nonetheless view as a high star even when this latest run has fallen flat with the followers. This has been a pleasant little run to inject some life into Natalya’s already legendary profession, but it surely would not finish with a title. Decide: Ronda Rousey retains the title — Brookhouse (additionally Mahjouri)
United States Championship — Idea (c) vs. Bobby Lashley
That is truly one thing of a troublesome name. Idea appears set to enter a SummerSlam program with John Cena, however that is a program that does not want the title concerned in any respect. Then again, Lashley has been elevated previous secondary title standing and successful the US title would really feel like a step within the unsuitable route. Provided that I feel Cena ought to win if the pair face off at SummerSlam, I feel it’s a must to transfer the title off of Idea. In fact, that will imply Idea taking two losses in a row on huge reveals and that does not really feel proper both. It is a powerful alternative, however Lashley successful could be the proper play. Decide: Bobby Lashley wins the title — Brookhouse
Vince McMahon and firm are clearly very excessive on Idea. So excessive that an eventual matchup between Idea and John Cena — Idea’s childhood idol — is consistently being hinted at. Idea received the U.S. title off Finn Balor in April and it feels too quickly to strip him of it now. Some kind of disqualification, depend out or no-contest looks like the easiest way to increase Idea’s reign whereas defending Lashley. Decide: Idea retains the title — Mahjouri
Undisputed WWE Tag Workforce Championship — The Usos (c) vs. The Avenue Earnings
The Usos and Roman Reigns are nonetheless completely dominant. It is laborious to see that ending in what appears like a “feud of the month” towards the Earnings. The Usos’ success is so carefully tied to what Reigns is doing and a loss for them damages his positioning because the dominant character in WWE. With that in thoughts, it ought to be one other evening of success for The Usos. Decide: The Usos retain the titles — Brookhouse (additionally Mahjouri)
