Money in the Bank 2020 Predictions 2020

With WWE determined to keep the show rolling, Money in the Bank 2020 will be staged at the organization’s global headquarters building in Stamford, Connecticut.

The pay-per-view event will take place on Sunday, May 10, without a live audience, while many of the sport’s biggest stars will be in action.

There is no denying that this will be the strangest edition of MITB to date. But there are still a lot of exciting matchups on the card and numerous titles on the line.

So, without further ado, let’s dive into my WWE Money in the Bank 2020 predictions for every match.

Bayley to Beat Tamina

As the defending champion, it’s no surprise that Bayley is the firm favorite to win the SmackDown Women’s Championship match.

She blew away her challengers — including Tamina — in a five-way elimination bout at WrestleMania 36, so I’m backing her to get the better of Tamina once again and maintain her control over the blue brand.

Tamina defeated Bayley’s close companion Sasha Banks to set up a title match at Money in the Bank 2020, but it’s highly unlikely that the 42-year-old’s hot streak will continue on Sunday.

Bayley has been unstoppable since clinching the belt back in October, and with WWE reportedly plotting a future match against Banks, the reigning champ should cruise to a comfortable victory over Tamina.

Braun Strowman to Beat Bray Wyatt

There is a distinct lack of matches at this year’s Money in the Bank that are built on a decent storyline. But the Universal Championship clash between Braun Strowman and Bray Wyatt is an exception.

Strowman entered the world of WWE as a member of Bray’s former group “The Wyatt Family.” However, the two men have gone their separate ways in recent years and no longer get along.

At WrestleMania 36, Strowman clinched his first-ever world title by overcoming Goldberg, while Wyatt — performing as his alter ego “The Fiend” — beat John Cena.

The Fiend has become a force to be reckoned with, but Wyatt won’t be acting as his alternative character at MITB. For that reason, I think Strowman will win.

Wyatt hasn’t had much success on his own recently, so Strowman should hold onto the title for a little while longer.

Drew McIntyre to Beat Seth Rollins

It’s difficult to imagine anything other than a Drew McIntyre win when he puts his WWE Championship title on the line against Seth Rollins.

“The Scottish Psychopath” swiftly dispatched of Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania last month before successfully defending his title against Big Show. He is expected to see off Rollins in a similarly speedy fashion.

After losing to Kevin Owens at the Show of Shows, it seems strange that Rollins has been given a title shot at MITB. But the current circumstances have forced WWE’s hand, so the Championship bout is set to be a one-sided affair.

McIntyre is in the form of his life right now, so you have to fear the worst for Rollins.

Lacey Evans to Win the Women’s Championship Ladder Match

This year’s Money in the Bank ladder match for the Women’s Championship will see six fighters battle to get their hands on the much-desired briefcase.

Shayna Baszler, Nia Jax, Lacey Evans, Asuka, Dana Brooke, and Carmella have all qualified for the bout, with Baszler being touted as the favorite to win. However, I don’t think this match will be as clear-cut as the bookies are suggesting.

Following her WrestleMania defeat to Becky Lynch, Baszler has blown hot and cold recently. Meanwhile, Jax and Evans are both looking strong at the moment, and you can’t completely rule out the other three contenders.

This is one of the tougher MITB matches to call, as WWE could take the story in various different directions. But the more I think about it, the more I can see Evans coming out on top.

She has been in contention for a title challenge for a while, and with some tasty odds on offer, it makes sense to back Evans here.

The New Day to Win the SmackDown Tag Team Championship

The New Day will need to fend off The Miz & Morrison, The Forgotten Sons, and Lucha House Party if they want to hold onto their SmackDown Tag Team belts.

Big E and Kofi Kingston reclaimed the title last month after John Morrison and The Miz had defended it at WrestleMania. But with two other teams in the mix this time around, this is likely to be a lively encounter.

The Forgotten Son’s meteoric rise has seen them go from main-roster debutants to genuine title contenders in a matter of weeks, while LHP will be eager to prove themselves after a quiet period.

But ultimately, this match should be centered around the ongoing feud between the two favorites, and I think The New Day will eliminate their rivals to defend their title.

Aleister Black to Win the Men’s Championship Ladder Match

AJ Styles comes into this match as the favorite. But just like the Women’s Ladder Match, I don’t think the Men’s main event will be a straightforward affair.

Aleister Black and King Corbin are also on the card, while Otis, Daniel Bryan, and Rey Mysterio — quite literally — make up the numbers.

Styles may be expected to win, but I can see Black and Corbin having a big say in this match. Both fighters have been making waves recently, and it feels like either one of them could snatch the briefcase.

In my opinion, Black is more likely to win. “The Dutch Destroyer” is the bookies’ second favorite for this match, while the lofty odds for the Corbin win suggest that he won’t be in contention.
