The next pay-per-view (PPV) on the WWE schedule is the Money in the Bank show set to take place on Sun., June 29, 2014, at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. While the concept of the "Big Four" has long been dead, if it were revived this event would likely replace Survivor Series as the number four show on the calender.
We're three weeks out from showtime and nothing is official for the card, but that's largely due to the uncertainty surrounding Daniel Bryan's neck and whether or not he'll be able to wrestle.
So here is the current plan, with rumors indicated as such:
- Daniel Bryan vs. Kane (WWE world heavyweight title Stretcher match)
This match is wholly contingent on Bryan getting cleared by a doctor just a number of weeks removed from neck surgery. It seems unlikely, and if recent reports are to be believed his rehab is moving along slower than expected. Still, this is what WWE is hoping for. If he cannot get clearance...
- Money in the Bank ladder match
Instead of a briefcase hovering above the ring with a contract for a guaranteed WWE world heavyweight championship match anytime over the next year inside it, the WWE world title(s) would be on the line. It's possible there would be a second ladder match added if that's the route they have to go. So far, Alberto Del Rio is the only man who has qualified for the match.
- Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose*
This one is just a rumor for now, but when Rollins turned heel and broke away from The Shield he did so by destroying Ambrose with about 58 chair shots, far more than he did to Roman Reigns.
- Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton*
Also just a rumor, but when Rollins turned heel and broke away from The Shield he did so by destroying Ambrose with about 58 chair shots, far more than he did to Roman Reigns. Instead, he left that up to Orton.
- Rusev vs. Mark Henry*
Another rumor but Henry isn't doing anything else and Rusev needs some form of progression. The fact that Henry would be the guy to do it will surely lead to further speculation that the Nation of Domination will reform, even if that seems silly in 2014.
That's the card as it stands right now, Cagesiders. Your thoughts?
