With the very first installment of the WWE Payback pay-per-view now in the books, the WWE heads to the city of brotherly love on Sunday, July 14th, 2013 for the fourth annual WWE Money in the Bank pay-per-view at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
And so, here's what to expect at Money in the Bank:
WHO WILL CHALLENGE JOHN CENA FOR THE WWE CHAMPIONSHIP?
After Cena defeated Ryback in a very grueling Three Stages of Heck match at Payback, it looks as if Cena's feud with Big Hungry is over for the time being.
And so, who will be Cena's next challenger? As reported here, Mark Henry will be making his return to Monday Night RAW tomorrow and so, that's a possibility. Another strong possibility is CM Punk, who made his presence felt when he made his return to the WWE after a two and a half month absence when he defeated Chris Jericho at Payback.
THE WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP PICTURE BECOMES CLOUDY
After Alberto Del Rio defeated Dolph Ziggler to become the World Heavyweight Championship at Payback, Del Rio sort of acting kind of heelish in his post-match promo. And so, who will challenge Del Rio now that Ziggler has reportedly suffered an injury at the hands of Del Rio? Randy Orton? Daniel Bryan? Ryback? Hello?
A NEW FORMAT FOR THE MONEY IN THE BANK LADDER MATCH?
In the past three Money in the Bank pay-per-views, there have been two Money in the Bank ladder matches: one for the WWE Championship (RAW brand) and one for the World Heavyweight Championship (SmackDown brand). Now that WWE Brand Extension no longer exists, how about just one Money in the Bank ladder match where the winner gets either a future WWE Championship match or World Heavyweight Championship match. And not only that, have all the participants of the Money in the Bank ladder match be all former WWE and World Heavyweight Champions due to the fact that Vince McMahon has virtually no faith in the mid-card division (with the exceptions of The Shield, Curtis Axel, and Fandango). And also, could Rob Van Dam be making his long-awaited return to the WWE in the Money in the Bank ladder match?
FINALLY, A SERIOUS DIVAS FEUD
Not since Lay-Cool antagonized the Divas from 2009-2011 that we finally have a very interesting feud between former best friends nor enemies Kaitlyn and A.J. Lee. Lee defeated Kaitlyn to become the new Divas Champion at Payback following a bitter feud between the former BFFs. Will this feud spark interest in the Divas division?
