WWE’s Money in the Bank premium live event takes place Saturday at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto. The popular event, considered to be on the same prestige level as SummerSlam, Survivor Series, Royal Rumble and WrestleMania, features two separate ladder matches — men’s and women’s — that guarantee the winners a championship opportunity at any time.

This year, the men’s side features Carmelo Hayes, Jey Uso, Andrade, Chad Gable, LA Knight and Drew McIntyre. For the women, Iyo Sky (2023’s Money in the Bank winner), Lyra Valkyria, Tiffany Stratton, Naomi, Zoey Stark and Chelsea Green will be competing.

In the history of Money in the Bank, there have been 30 total winners, with 25 of them successfully cashing in to win a WWE championship. Every women’s winner has successfully cashed in while there have been five unsuccessful attempts on the men’s side, with Austin Theory being the last to fail in 2022.

In addition to the Money in the Bank matches, there are three other contests scheduled. Here is a look at the full card:

Men’s Money in the Bank ladder match — Carmelo Hayes vs. Jey Uso vs. Andrade vs. Chad Gable vs. LA Knight vs. Drew McIntyre

Women’s Money in the Bank ladder match — Iyo Sky vs. Lyra Valkyria vs. Tiffany Stratton vs. Naomi vs. Zoey Stark vs. Chelsea Green

World Heavyweight Championship match — Damian Priest (c.) vs. Seth Rollins (If Rollins loses, he can never challenge Priest again for the title. If Priest loses, he must leave the Judgment Day)

Intercontinental Championship match — Sami Zayn (c.) vs. Bron Breakker

Cody Rhodes, Kevin Owens and Randy Orton vs. The Bloodline

  • Money in the Bank predictions

    Men’s Money in the Bank ladder match — Carmelo Hayes vs. Jey Uso vs. Andrade vs. Chad Gable vs. LA Knight vs. Drew McIntyre – This match’s participants can essentially be broken up into two groups, contenders and pretenders (in the sense that they can actually be booked to win). Hayes, Andrade and Gable are incredible competitors and the latter two were both top champions in NXT, but you’d have to twist yourself into a pretzel to put them into the championship picture right now. That leaves us with Uso, Knight and McIntyre. Uso is a top babyface right now and you could argue he’ll never get hotter so why not cash in (pun intended), Knight will always be a fan favorite and can make anything work at any time I believe and McIntyre was screwed by the MITB briefcase at WrestleMania and then again at Clash at the Castle last month. Ultimately, with CM Punk looming again potentially over McIntyre, I think Uso walks out with the contract. Prediction: Jey Uso wins the men’s Money in the Bank ladder match

    Women’s Money in the Bank ladder match — Iyo Sky vs. Lyra Valkyria vs. Tiffany Stratton vs. Naomi vs. Zoey Stark vs. Chelsea Green – Unlike the men, the women’s side feels a little more wide open, with a case that could be made for any of the competitors. That said, Sky, Stratton and Naomi have all lost to Bayley during her recent title reign and it doesn’t quite feel like Stark or Valkyria are at that main-event level just yet. That leaves us with Green, who’s more often than not a comedy act. Green winning would be a complete stunner (in a good way) and potentially lay the groundwork for the first-ever failed women’s cash-in. Prediction: Chelsea Green wins the women’s Money in the Bank ladder match

    World Heavyweight Championship match — Damian Priest (c.) vs. Seth Rollins (If Rollins loses, he can never challenge Priest again for the title. If Priest loses, he must leave the Judgment Day) – These two met at WrestleMania 40 in a very strong match to open Night 2, so running it back will not draw any complaints here. The timing of when this match takes place will be important, as the men’s MITB winner could look to strike, especially if it is McIntyre. I don’t think either stipulation will be a cause for concern in long-term storytelling as I see Priest winning against Rollins and potentially getting cashed-in on right away. Prediction: Damian Priest retains his World Heavyweight Championship

    Intercontinental Championship match — Sami Zayn (c.) vs. Bron Breakker – A major clash of styles here should result in one of the more unique matches on the card. Zayn is a great Intercontinental Champion, but it does feel like Breakker’s momentum could carry him to a victory here. If not, Zayn could utilize his experience to gain an upper hand and win here, setting up a rematch at SummerSlam. I was wrong in predicting Zayn to drop the belt to Gable at Clash at the Castle, but I’m going to bet against him again. Prediction: Bron Breakker wins the Intercontinental Championship

    Cody Rhodes, Kevin Owens and Randy Orton vs. The Bloodline – What inning are we in? The Bloodline story continues to deliver on a weekly basis, and it has completely transformed under the guidance of Solo Sikoa. That said, I think we’re heading for split storylines coming out of this match. WWE and Orton have been dropping subtle hints about a potential challenge to Rhodes for the Undisputed WWE Championship, so win or lose, I think (hope) we’re getting that at SummerSlam. As far as the Bloodline goes, we’re on a collision course for a Roman Reigns return and potential reuniting with the Usos for yet another civil war. It may not happen as soon as next month at SummerSlam, but I think we’ll take another step toward that at Money in the Bank. Prediction: The Bloodline wins
