Five Reasons to Watch WWE Money in the Bank 2015

With WWE Money in the Bank just around the corner, some of you may still be thinking; "is this worth my time?" Well, here are five reasons why you should skip your Shake Weight workout and watch:

1. Money in the Bank Contract Ladder Match - It's a long match title, but make no mistake, it's an important one. The winner gets a shot at the WWE world heavyweight championship whenever they decide to cash in their opportunity. Those in contention are: Sheamus, Roman Reigns, Kofi Kingston, Randy Orton, Kane, Neville, and Dolph Ziggler. Reigns is the odds on favorite to win, but this field includes three former briefcase winners and four world champions, so it won't be an easy win. Like most ladder matches, this should have some insane spots that are simply can't miss.

2. Roman Reigns - If you're a Reigns fan, you may be in luck, as his fingerprints could be all over this pay-per-view. Not only is he in one of the bigger matches of the night, it's been rumored if he wins Reigns could cash-in on the same night! It's no secret he would like to get his hands on Rollins, should he retain the WWE title. It's also been whispered that he could turn heel against his good buddy Dean Ambrose and go for the title. There's a lot of different paths for Reigns to take, but which one will he travel down?

3. The New Day vs. Prime Time Players - This is the third show in row where the tag team division has been mentioned in this series. I'm hoping people are becoming as excited as I am about what these guys are doing. With the power of positivity -- sorry, Bo -- Kofi Kingston, Big E, and Xavier Woods have been a joy to watch each week. If you have yet to see their ringside antics or watch Kofi and Xavier hoist Big E on their shoulders, you're missing out. The Prime Time Players are on a bit of a hot streak and should give The New Day a run for their money. Don't sleep on this division, plenty of solid teams are coming together to make for some interesting match-ups.

4. John Cena vs. Kevin Owens: The Rematch - At Elimination Chamber, these two put it all on the line and it was beauty of a match. Cena did everything he could to put away the NXT champion, but came up just short as Owens pinned Cena clean in the middle of the ring. Tonight they go at it again, and it will be interesting to see if it's possible to top their previous match. Can Cena get back his loss or does Owens simply have his number?

5. R-Truth - To be honest, some of the match-ups are a bit tired -- I'm looking at you Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins and Nikki Bella vs. Paige -- so why not give R-Truth some love? He's going to be on the Kickoff Show going up against the struggling "King" Barrett. Yes, Truth just muddles around the mid-card, but whenever he makes an appearance, it's usually good TV. Last Monday, he came out to cut a promo with the other MITB contenders, unfortunately for Truth, he didn't realize he wasn't actually in the match. The video below will show you the insanity, and his even funnier Raw Fallout interview.
