Backstage News on Money in the Bank, Lesnar Expected Back Before August, Superstars

– Matches for today’s WWE Superstars episode are Ezekiel Jackson vs. Hunico, Zack Ryder vs. Drew McIntyre plus tag team action with Curt Hawkins and Tyler Reks vs. Tyson Kidd and Justin Gabriel.

– While WWE is advertising Brock Lesnar for the August 13th go-home RAW Supershow for SummerSlam, he will likely be back earlier than that, perhaps on the 1,000th RAW.

– Alberto Del Rio vs. Sheamus for the World Heavyweight Title will likely take place at the July 15th Money in the Bank pay-per-view. Like last year, there will be two Money in the Bank ladder matches on the card. Money in the Bank is a bit of a throw-away pay-per-view as they’re gearing more for SummerSlam in August with Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar headlining.

    @Pyro Wade isn’t injured anymore Dil weed. He has a Small Role in a WWE Film shooting right now.

    If Wade Barrett doesn’t win a MITB match, I don’t care. He won’t make it back in time, though, and even if he did they’d probably give it to somebody else, sadly. Way past time he got his world title.

  • sdp

    It annoys me that they don’t do Major title matches as the main event to often anymore instead you get Brock vs. HHH or Cena vs. Show… well Cena vs. anyone basically they put over any title match because to have him be a mid carder would just shut down the company? or so they act

  • JohnCena33

    Cena will win RAW MITB and Rhodes will win Smackdown.

  • ant

    personally i would have dolph ziggler win the raw mitb and cody rhodes or tyson kidd to win the smackdown mitb

  • scooter

    yet it was the best wwe ppv two years in a row funny that eh?

  • OGitchida

    anyone for a M.I.T.B. Wade Barret return ???….

  • The Awesome One

    hears a thought have a guy cash in on the championship then the other guy who won the mitb cash in on the guy who just won the title

  • What cena’s not main eventing summerslam what a shocker about time he will probably face cm punk

  • @TrevorAllen23

    Wait if Wrestlers compete on both shows… what’s the point?

  • The_electrifying_one

    Why is it a throw away PPV? Can’t they remember the attitude era? or even more recent than that say 2004/5 when they used PPV’s to for plot twists and build up to the big 4 e.g. No Way out the month before Mania was a build up PPV and that was never a throw away.

    So why does money in the bank have to be a throw away PPV. Have something crazy like Brock returns wins the Raw MITB and then cashes it in. HHH V Brock for the WWE title at summerslam.

  • Jimbo

    Would be happy with Barrett, Rhodes, Ziggler, or Christian winning MITB.

    @ ButterCastle shut up and go make a castle out of butter

  • Buttercastle

    I’m about as hyped for the Triple H / Lesnar match as I was for the Santino / Ricardo match at NWO.

  • finallythekingjoinsin

    @Maxwell….or both. @Sam Peters…I agree. That gives them time to build Ziggler as the main eventer he deserves to be. I wish Cody could win one but its obvious they want Wade Barrett to win. Barrett shoulda been pushed to main event just cause he had several good opportunities to do so. Why waste a briefcase on somebody that only needs a good series wit someone an he’s back n serious contention for a world title. I loved when Cody and Ziggler was the midcard champs together. They made both belts mean something again, it was the workhorse titles again. Give them both MITB an make it mean even more.

  • Sam Peters

    Wade Barrett to return at MITB and win the MITB for Smackdown and Dolph Ziggler to win the MITB for Raw

  • SYM

    Money in the Bank has never had a bad PPV. Its always been good. They should Treat MITB like a SummerSlam or Royal Rumble. Have 5 Big PPV’s instead of 4.

  • False Idol

    That’s it…WWE have offically lost the plot. I can’t believe MTIB is a ‘throw away ppv’!! Has Orton been supplying the board with the green stuff?

  • Albert

    can we have a divas MITB 🙂 pleeeeeeaaaase!!! or even have divas get a chance at the smakcdown or raw one lol would be cool if Beth cashed in for WWE and wins … just saying!!!!!!!

  • Maxwell

    If Ziggler Or Cody Rhodes don’t win a MITB Match, we riot!

  • Sammo

    How can anyone refer to Money in the Bank as a “throw-away PPV”?!

    It will produce two new briefcase winners who will play a major role in the main event scene(s) in the immediate aftermath!
