E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness Recap w/ Titus O’Neil – AEW’s New TV Deal, MITB PPV Predictions, O’Neil’s Talk With Lars Sullivan, More!
Edge says he’s looking forward to Sunday’s Money in the Bank PPV. He notes that the MITB briefcase has basically replaced the Intercontinental Title as the major stepping stone for talents on their way to the main event picture. It’s also used as a way for WWE to give a talent who they’re not real sure about a chance to succeed, like Jack Swagger a few years ago.
Edge points out that Braun Strowman really didn’t need to win the briefcase last year because Strowman’s character should never need an advantage to beat someone. He doesn’t think WWE put a lot of thought into that last year.
Edge and Christian both point out that there’s a lot of talent in both MITB ladder matches. Edge likes that Dana Brooke is being given an opportunity in this year’s match because she works really hard and deserves it. Edge and Christian both think Mandy Rose might win the women’s MITB match, but Edge would like to see Bayley win followed by a heel turn so she can chance a babyface Champion.
Christian thinks Sami Zayn will win the men’s MITB match, and Edge thinks Drew McIntyre has a good chance of winning as well, even though he doesn’t really need it. They both agree that a case can be made for any of the men in that match.
