Here’s a preview and prediction for every match on the card at the 2018 edition of WWE Money in the Bank.

WWE Money in the Bank has grown into one of the biggest pay-per-view events on the WWE calendar and outside of a couple matches on the card, this has the chance to be a very solid show, something that is desperately needed right about now. Following a stretch of three pay-per-views in less than a month with WrestleMania, Greatest Royal Rumble and Backlash, we got a little break but it’s time to get back into things and start the build towards SummerSlam.

The tag division takes a little bit of a hit here as it hasn’t been announced (as of this writing anyway) whether or not The B-Team (which I’m loving) will get their title shot against The Deleters of Worlds that would finally pit Bo Dallas vs. Bray Wyatt, who are real-life brothers for those who don’t know, against one another. As for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship bout, Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson are finally back in the title picture and get rewarded for that by having their bout with The Bludgeon Brothers on the kickoff show. I thought this match deserved more, certainly more than the first match I’ll talk about, but I’m hoping they go out and try to prove something anyway. I think Harper and Rowan retain for now but I’m hoping for a title run for The Good Brothers soon.

So let’s take a look at the rest of what we’ll see on Sunday night on the WWE Network.

Bobby Lashley vs. Sami Zayn

This is one of the matches on the card that I really have no interest in seeing. It’s not that these guys can’t work but the whole thing seems very forced. I don’t think Bobby Lashley is getting the reaction WWE was looking for when he returned to the company for the first time in more than a decade and this storyline isn’t helping matters.

The basis here is that Sami Zayn was upset that Lashley upstaged him in his return to Monday Night RAW and then gave him a case of vertigo that caused him to miss the show in Saudi Arabia (we all know what really happened there). So how does he exact revenge? He brings out three dudes dressed as women to portray Bobby Lashley’s sisters. I mean, I guess that’s what I would have done in that same situation. WHAT? But here we are anyway. Oh yeah, let’s not forget about that deadly handshake. Yikes.

Prediction: One has to assume that Bobby Lashley walks away with the win here and hopefully we can all just move on with this and forget it ever happened.
