Top 15 Wrestlers Who Might Win This Year's MITB

The Money in the Bank pay-per-view event is one of the most-anticipated shows on the yearly World Wrestling Entertainment calendar. Fans tune in to see which WWE competitor will end up with the MITB briefcase, which contains in it a (storyline) contract for an upcoming World Heavyweight Championship match. A plethora of superstars have utilized a MITB victory to propel themselves into the main event picture in the past, and the perception is that those who purchase the MITB show or who attend it live and in-person are watching the crowning of who will be the next big star in WWE.

Seth Rollins was the last case of a former midcard wrestler using a MITB contract to win the World Heavyweight Championship. Rollins was the first person to cash in his briefcase on the biggest stage in all of North American professional wrestling when he stormed to the ring during the Roman Reigns versus Brock Lesnar match at WrestleMania 31 and then pinned his former “Shield” teammate to win the top title in the company. Some fans and insiders have, since WrestleMania, viewed Rollins as being nothing more than a transitional champion, and thus he could be a potential back-to-back MITB winner.

The WWE has seemingly moved to a booking system that involves champions holding onto their titles for longer than just a month or so, and thus it may be foolish to suggest that Rollins is not going to remain the company's top champion up through at least SummerSlam 2015. What is not all that crazy of a suggestion is that one of the other two former members of the Shield will end the MITB show standing tall atop the ladder with briefcase in hand. Which of those two is chosen, if either man gets the rub, will depend on how the WWE pushes those two individuals.

Logic suggests that the time for Dean Ambrose to win the MITB contract and emerge past a stale midcard status has arrived this spring. It is hardly a secret that the WWE has been high on all three Shield members since that faction was called up to the main roster, and Ambrose is the last of them to be pushed up to the top of cards. What is a further positive for predicting Ambrose as the favorite to win the 2015 MITB briefcase is that he has the mic skills and in-ring abilities to play either babyface or heel, and thus he could cash in his opportunity in a variety of ways over a year-long period.
