Several sources have reported that there will be no Money In The Bank match at Wrestlemania XXVII. Instead, the concept will now become exclusive to the gimmick PPV event. This dramatic change in the format of Wrestlemania is likely an attempt to keep the match fresh while avoiding the possibility of having several briefcase holders at once. However, removing this match will likely lead to some horrible booking decisions in the very near future. If WWE were to keep this match on the Wrestlemania card, Jack Swagger, Christian, Drew Mcintyre, Evan Bourne, and John Morrison would have a place on the card that people actually enjoy. Without the match, these superstars will likely be placed in mixed tag matches and thrown together matches that take away from the overall quality of the show.
The best option for WWE would be to keep the match at Mania; the winner of this briefcase would then challenge any champion of his choosing. The Miz and Kane would both confined to specific branded briefcases, there should be no problem with three different briefcases. Giving the win to someone like John Morrison at Wrestlemania would allow him to challenge The Miz in the future. Wrestlemania is intended to be the blow off for a year of feuds. Allowing the MITB match to remain at Wrestlemania would help to springboard mid-card talent into main event feuds. If the creative staff at WWE is serious about making new stars, Money In The Bank should remain at Wrestlemania.
This week on In the Room, Brady Hicks, DJ, and Kevin McElvaney focus on WWE Raw and NXT, what both shows are doing right, and where each could stand to improve. They also take some time to address some of TNA’s recent signings, including offering a shoutout for friend of the show Becky Bayless.
