Eight men will compete in tonight's Money in the Bank ladder match, with the winner having the opportunity to receive a championship match whenever and wherever they want over the next year.
Now, plans always change at the last minute under Vince McMahon's watch, but we already have a good idea about the winner. According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio (h/t Ringside News), Drew McIntyre "was going to win at one point," though Meltzer emphasized that "things can change."
A McIntyre victory wouldn't be all that surprising, because it's well-known how much Vince values him. McIntyre has been rumored for a massive push for a while now, and having him win the MITB contract would be a great starting point.
It's worth noting that the Observer suggested that Braun Strowman - who lost his spot to Sami Zayn - would play a big role in the match. It was said that he'd "play a part in the winner" which would "best be served for Ricochet."
McIntyre and Baron Corbin interfered in Strowman's match on Monday Night Raw, attacking The Monster Among Men and holding him down in order to ensure that Zayn picked up the pinfall victory. But if Strowman does interfere - and if McIntyre still ends up winning - it'll be interesting to see how that all plays out tonight.
It should be noted that Baron Corbin vs. Seth Rollins for the Universal Championship has been advertised at Extreme Rules. That means Corbin will likely enter a feud with The Architect soon, so if McIntyre wins Money in the Bank, it's unlikely he'd cash it in against Rollins any time soon.
What This Means
Again, things can always change in WWE. Vince has reversed the booking decision in monumental matches many times. But it makes all the sense in the world to give this one to McIntyre, who's on the path to getting his main event push once and for all.
