Who Is Favored To Win Money In The Bank If Baron Corbin Isn't?

Baron Corbin came close, but Shinsuke Nakamura won the Money In The Bank preview event at the recent Smackdown - so who will win the real thing?

Money In The Bank is one of the most exciting PPV events of the year. Not only do we get a ladder match, but the consequences of the match are huge - the winner gets a guaranteed shot at the title whenever he decides to cash it in. And if you look at the history of the event, the winner of MITB has almost always gone on to become Champion.

Over the months since the six competitors for the match were announced, the speculation among most observers is that Baron Corbin would be the one to emerge with the briefcase. Corbin is a strong competitor, the organization is high on him, and there has been a lot of talk about him getting a big push going forward - and a great way to give him that push would, of course, be to have him win MITB.


Also, if you check out gambling odds sites you will see that Corbin is still the odds-on favorite. But, as everyone knows with the WWE, things can change fast...


In fact, Cageside Seats is reporting a rumour that Corbin is no longer favored to win and that recent NXT call-up, The King of Strong Style, Shinsuke Nakamura is the man that will win the Money In The Bank ladder match.

Now, this might not come as a huge surprise to those who caught SmackDown this week and saw that exact outcome teased when the six MITB competitors had a preview match. Corbin was just a few inches away from grabbing the briefcase before Nakamura was able to knock him off the ladder and climb up to grab it himself.

Yes, speculating is fun but, in just a few days, on Sunday night in St. Louis, Missouri the speculating will end and one of these six men (Nakamura, Corbin, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Dolph Ziggler, A.J. Styles) will walk away with one of the most sough-after prizes in the WWE.
