MOC Predictions – 2017 Money In The Bank Pay-Per-View

As we inch near to Sunday’s Money in the Bank PPV, you can already hear the collision between skin and steel, or wood, as some of the ladders are painted silver to make it appear as if their steel. BUT, I digress; Sunday will be filled with a ton of excitement as we get two MITB matches, a tag team title match and a Women’s championship match.

Let’s review the matches and provide our predictions for the show to come. Make sure to share yours as well either through the comments below, Twitter or Facebook.

Naomi (c) vs. Lana
-Smackdown Live Women’s Championship-
Singles Match

In my honest opinion, Lana getting a title match is a bit ridiculous. Especially since Naomi did want to fight her and would fight her nonetheless, but her putting up the title didn’t need to be incorporated. But it’s WWE, so they’ll give the opportunity to Lana while the rest of the deserving women compete in a ladder match for it. But here’s what I see going on. WWE did accidentally mention that the Women’s MITB match would incorporate SIX women, and not the regular five that have been advertised. See the tweet below.

https://twitter.com/WWE/status/875533598283018240

Here’s what I feel will happen. Rusev will make a return causing a distraction allowing Lana to pick up the win over Naomi. Thus Lana becomes the new Smackdown Women’s Champion. Naomi angry about the situation gets added to the Women’s MITB match. Remember Naomi did show interest in being in the match a few weeks back on Smackdown Live. So it wouldn’t surprise me if she did get added on.

So my prediction moving forward is that Lana wins, following a distraction from Rusev. Naomi gets added to the MITB match.

MOC Prediction: Lana (New Smackdown Live Women’s Champion)


The Usos (c) vs. The New Day
-Smackdown Live Tag Team Championship-
Tag Team Match

The Usos face a big challenge as the New Day make their Smackdown Live PPV debut at Money in the Bank. New Day have already gone in the record books for being the longest reigning WWE Tag Team Champions in history, and look to make more history by capturing the Smackdown Live Tag Team titles, but the Usos are no joke and will put up  a fight against the Unicorn Ice Cream Boys.

In my honest opinion, I feel that the Usos will come out victorious this Sunday. Claiming that Smackdown Live has a stronger Tag Team division than Raw, and that’s why New Day managed to keep those titles for so long. This builds the Usos up as a serious tag team which won’t be beaten easily and that their claim over those titles goes hand-in-hand with their new attitudes. As much as I would love to see the New Day become champs, I honestly feel Usos will come out victorious in this, for now.

MOC Prediction: The Usos (retain)


Charlotte vs. Natalya vs. Tamina vs. Becky Lynch vs. Carmella (potentially Naomi, Maria and or an NXT talent added)
Women’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match

Sunday will mark history as this will be the very first ever, MITB ladder match contested in the Women’s division. Frankly I feel this will be a heavy hitting match and am interested to see what these women come do with the ladders. Let’s be honest, they can also use any other weapons as well. When it comes to winners, it’s hard to tell cause you gotta ask yourself, will we have a last minute entree, will James Ellsworth somehow get involved to help his supposed girlfriend Carmella. Not sure  but if I had to pick I would assume Charlotte comes out on top. She’s been a landmark in historical matches in WWE and I feel the win will only add to her prestige.

Like I said though, it’s unknown if there will be a last minute entree, which could change things up.

MOC Prediction: Charlotte (1st Ever Winner of the Women’s MITB match)


Jinder Mahal (c) vs. Randy Orton
-WWE Championship-
Singles Match

Listen I’ll admit it, typing in Jinders name as the WWE champion is still a bit odd, but I feel he’s been doing a great job at keeping the heat on him now that WWE has given him this huge spotlight. Jinder may not be many fans pick to be champion, but he’s a character in development and holds the gimmick of the “Modern Day Maharajah” very beautifully. I love the way it sounds and it brings a new visual to WWE TV, whether people like it or not.

Jinder is developing a ton of heat and with the addition of the Singh brothers by his side, he’s being portrayed as a proper heel who has to steep to underhanded tactics to win. That’s the job of a heel and I feel he’s doing a great job at it. When it comes to winners, I think Jinder retains his title. Whether he retains due to the Singh brothers causing a problem, or a potential NXT call-up by the name of Jeet Rama causing an distraction giving Jinder the win. You never know what could happen, but I feel Jinder will remain champion moving forward.

MOC Prediction: Jinder Mahal (retains)


Kevin Owens (c) vs. AJ Styles vs. Sami Zayn vs. Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Baron Corbin vs. Dolph Ziggler
Money In The Bank Ladder Match

This is probably one of the most stacked matches I’ve seen in a while. So many great talents in one match, fighting for a chance at the WWE Championship. Let’s face it, there are reasons why every one of these men deserve the opportunity to potentially be that the next WWE champion.

For me, I’m picking a surprise winner, just as Jinder was a surprise winner for the WWE title, I feel surprises is one thing that could set a match apart, and for this one I’m going with Sami Zayn. Sami has been a guy who has been made to look as the underdog in many of his matches and even in this one, he gives the appeal that he’s not the guy to win. But this could be a turning point for Sami and would add at least some credentials to his WWE run.

This match will be one that will last in our memories as I anticipate many big spots and close calls. And I feel Sami will be in the right place, at the right time.

MOC Prediction: Sami Zayn (2017 Money In The Bank Winner)

MOC Predictions – WWE Payback Pay-Per-View – April 30, 2017

What’s going on guys and welcome to the MOC Predictions for this Sunday’s WWE Payback PPV.

Below you will find the announced matches and graphics (sourced from WWE.com) for the event. Remember to stick with MOC as we will be covering the show live with results, highlights and whatever else comes at us.

Special Edition of Miz TV
-KICKOFF-

Now I’m not really sure what this is intended for, but if Bray Wyatt doesn’t attack, or tease an attack on Balor…. I’m done.


Big Cass & Enzo Amore vs. Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows
-KICKOFF MATCH-
Tag Team Match

Following the attack on Raw where Karl and Luke laid out Enzo Amore, this wasn’t a surprise that this match was made. But I still can’t see Enzo and Cass coming out on top. This may not be the most popular decision, but I see Enzo as a weak point in his team. I feel that they won’t get those titles anytime soon as they’re too Jokey of a team to be honest. I like them, but I can’t see them coming out on top… Actually one thing I could see if WWE wanted to give Cass his own opportunities is to have him show fraustration over Enzo for being that one guy who always has them losing. Personally I can’t remember when Cass has been pinned. So for this one, I’m going for the Club for the win.

MOC Prediction: Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson


Austin Aries vs. Neville (c)
-WWE Cruiserweight Championship-
Singles Match

These two had an amazing match at WrestleMania 33, and even though it was on the KICKOFF show, this could have very easily been a main card spot. But nonetheless their getting the opportunity once again to shine at Payback. Last time we saw Neville come out on top, and I’m pretty sure TJ Perkins may try and poke his head in this match, but I personally feel that the king may be dethroned as Aries will pick up his first even WWE title victory and become the new Champion of the Cruiserweights.

MOC Prediction: Austin Aries (New WWE Cruiserweight Champion)


The Hardy Boyz (c) vs. Sheamus & Cesaro
-Raw Tag Team Championship-
Tag Team Match

It’s still surreal to see that the Hardy Boyz are back in the WWE, but it’s still a cool site when they perform nostalgic moves which brings back so many memories. Sheamus and Cesaro though have been a power force in the Raw tag team division and are two guys that not only can take a beating, but deliver it too.

For the past couple of weeks the Hardy’s have had the advantage over them, with Sheamus and Cesaro offering their hands in respect for the team. But at Payback I believe that the respect will get thrown out the window as I feel the Hardy’s may get a distracted victory over Sheamus & Cesaro, which will send them into “pissed mode.” I personally see Sheamus & Cesaro beating down on the Hardy’s and fully turning heel. This could potentially lead to another match down the line utilizing weapons and or, ladders.

MOC Predictions: Matt & Jeff Hardy (retain)


Seth Rollins vs. Samoa Joe
Singles Match

These two have unfinished business as Seth tries to put himself together after being victories at WrestleMania 33 against Triple H. Joe vs Rollins will be a match you don’t want to miss. Tensions have been the base of this rivalry as Joe nearly re-injured Rollins knee back in March after an attack. But Rollins fought back, beat Triple H and needs to end his ongoing problems with Samoa Joe. Though, I don’t think this will end at Payback. This is not a “one-off” match in my opinion and it’s a rivalry that can distinguish both men. As we’ve seen Rollins has moved away from the Pedigree and is now focused on a new finisher which he hopes will give him the victory, though I feel that Rollins will get a victory…. a DQ victory as Joe will utilize some type of weapon to cost him the match. Thus leading to more matches down the line.

MOC Predictions: Seth Rollins via DQ.


Bayley (c) vs. Alexa Bliss
-Raw Women’s Championship-
Singles Match

Listen, I have been losing support for Bayley these past few weeks. For me there are very few women on the Raw women’s division that a stand behind, and primarily it’s because of how they cut promos. Many of them are great in the ring don’t get me wrong, but when it comes to personality and delivery Alexa Bliss just has….. IT! Bayley is just so whiny, and Sasha just sounds as if she has a mouth full of socks when she talks. Now I’m not sure if Sasha somehow gets involved in this match, and potentially costs Bayley the win, but in my honest opinion I feel Alexa leaves as the new champion.

MOC Predictions: Alexa Bliss (New Raw Women’s Champion)


Kevin Owens (c) vs. Chris Jericho
-WWE United States Championship-
Singles Match

Now this match is a bit predicable. Not saying the story-line is predicable, but because Chris Jericho will be leaving the company temporarily to go on tour with his band Fozzy. So right away you gotta think to yourself that WWE won’t allow another title such as Brock Lesnar & The Universal Title, to be absent off of WWE TV. This is why I believe that Owens comes out on top. And to be honest, Owens is the one who benefits the most by ending this feud with Jericho. It’s been entertaining and honestly their chemistry together has been great. But as a send off to their feud, I’m seeing Kevin Owens come out on top.

MOC Prediction: Kevin Owens (retains)

Side note: Loving that two Canadians are fighting to the US title.


Randy Orton (c) vs. Bray Wyatt
-NON TITLE MATCH-
House of Horrors Match

Ok, so WWE has confirmed that this match will NOT be for the WWE Championship as many thought it would be. But, we’re still unsure exactly what a “house of horrors” match actually is. Is it set in a factory, will it be in a cage surrounded by fire with fire eating ants crawling around? We have no idea. So it’s one of those things that we’re just gonna have to wait and see. BUT, not having the title on the line changes things. The reason is becuase Bray has potential to win. Originally I thought that the Title could come to Raw, but it would make sense to keep it on Smackdown Live, therefor I believed if the title was on the line, Bray would lose. But now that it’s been removed, Bray has potential to end this feud with a win. Thus giving him momentum moving forward and winning in a match of his creation. Randy beating Bray at his own game would just kill any momentum he’s built.

So as far as the match is concerned…  I got no clue what’ll be apart of it, but no matter what I see Bray Wyatt coming out on top.

MOC Prediction: Bray Wyatt


Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman
Singles Match

Roman Reigns makes his return to WWE TV after suffering a “story-line” beat down from Braun Strowman where he was thrown off a loading dock while strapped to a stretcher, and while inside the ambulance, get flipped by Braun Strowman. The updates we received on his health was that he had injured ribs, dislocated shoulder and more. So you gotta ask yourself, how healed up is Roman Reigns?

It’s no surprise to anyone that Braun has been on a dominating streak, especially as a man his size. You know when you big, working for Vince you’re already in his good books. But it won’t surprise me if Roman has his “look strong” moments which i’m anticipating. Though when it comes to winning, I can’t see Braun lose again. As some of you remember Braun lost the dumpster match on Raw against Kalisto, and I know that was a gimmick match, but I feel Braun losing a standard singles match could kill his big guy momentum. So I feel that Roman comes into this match beaten up, and leaves…. dead…. just dead…..

MOC Prediction: Braun Strowman
