• Current Money In The Bank Cash-In Plan Revealed (Major Spoiler)
According to Dirtysheets.net, The Miz is currently scheduled to win the Men’s Money In The Bank ladder match and become a two time Money In The Bank match winner.
However, there’s a possibility that these plans could change as WWE officials want The Miz to have a lot of heel heat heading into his feud with Daniel Bryan and they’re afraid The Miz might receive “you deserve it” chants when he wins the Money In The Bank ladder match.
Also, The Miz winning the Money In The Bank ladder match solely depends on Daniel Bryan re-signing with WWE, as WWE officials want the Bryan-Miz feud to involve the WWE Championship.
If Bryan doesn’t decided to re-sign with WWE, then Bryan will be booked to lose to The Miz in a singles match (possibly at SummerSlam 2018) on his way out of the company, but that is highly unlikely.
As of right now, Miz is scheduled to become Mr. Money In The Bank 2018 and is expected to cash-in on “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles to become a two time WWE Champion.
Dirty Sheets also revealed the original plan for the Men’s Money In The Bank ladder match.
“The Monster Among Men” Braun Strowman was originally scheduled to win the Men’s Money In The Bank ladder match and cash-in on the same night after the Brock Lesnar – Roman Reigns Universal Title match.
But these plans have been nixed as Lesnar vs. Reigns isn’t happening at Money In The Bank 2018 PPV and Reigns will be facing Jinder Mahal instead.
