Having The Men's MITB Ladder Match Is A Moot Point Right Now


The 2022 edition of the WWE Money in the Bank pay-per-view will emanate from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in suburban Las Vegas on Saturday, July 2nd, 2022. With six matches currently scheduled, the card looks to be pretty stacked even though Roman Reigns is not scheduled to defend his titles on the show.

Looking at the participants of the Men's Money in the Bank ladder match, with the exceptions of Matt Riddle and Seth Rollins, none of the men have any character or personality in them. Instead, the match consists of Random Guy #1 vs. Random Guy #2 vs. Random Guy #3 and so forth. As a result, the men's mid-card matches have become the period where the WWE Universe can either use the restroom or get a snack from the concession stands as nothing exciting ever happens during these matches. And with the WWE wanting to keep Roman Reigns as the "Face of the WWE Men's Division," the chances are very likely that the winner will end up failing to cash in his MITB briefcase.

The same however cannot be said about the Women's Money in the Bank ladder match as fans don't treat women's matches as the bathroom break/popcorn match as they did during the WWE Divas Era. The WWE Women's Division has unique characters and looks as opposed to the days when most of the women were bland and generic models with no personality whatsoever. We have the likes of "The Man" herself Becky Lynch, the Geisha Girl Asuka, the demonic Alexa Bliss, the sadistic Shayna Blaszler, the underdog Liv Morgan and the punk rocker Shotzi Blackheart, among others. Put together with the likes of the Rasta Girl Bianca Belair, the Queen of Harts Natalya, the narcissistic Carmella and of course, the Biggest Woman on the Planet, Ronda Rousey, makes for a very entertaining roster.

With a very lackluster Men's Money in the Bank ladder match, look for the WWE to throw a wild card as I expect one of the lesser participants to be replaced by maybe either John Cena, Goldberg or even Brock Lesnar. But unless that happens, look for the Women's Money in the Bank ladder match to outperform the Men's Money in the Bank ladder match when all is said and done.
