WWE Money In The Bank 2022 Predictions

WWE Money In The Bank 2022 is here and after two solid shows in a row in WrestleMania Backlash and Hell in a Cell, can they do it for a third time in a row before we hit SummerSlam?

Our Sports Obsessive experts Jeremy Thomas, Jon Shartzer & Katrina Blake are all here to give you their predictions for the big show. So, without further adieu, we present our Sports Obsessive Money In The Bank 2022 predictions!

Austin Theory vs. Bobby Lashley

Jeremy: I don’t think that WWE can have Lashley outright lose this match. He needs to regain his monster persona after a back-and-forth feud with Omos. I believe Lashley wins by DQ after some interference from the Miz. Logan Paul could come out to save Lashley to set up a big-name Lashley/Logan Paul vs. The Miz and Theory encounter at SummerSlam.
Prediction: Bobby Lashley (by DQ)

Jon: Man, they’re going to use Lashley to get Theory over. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I get it. Theory is clearly on track for a match against John Cena at SummerSlam. They’ve got big plans for the kid. Those plans obviously include beating Bobby Lashley on the way to bigger things in Nashville in late July.

Prediction: Austin Theory

Katrina: I think the best option is to make both guys look good here. I think Theory retains, but Bobby will win this via a DQ or something.

Prediction: Bobby Lashley (by DQ)

RAW Women’s Champion Bianca Belair vs. Carmella

Jeremy: There is no way that Belair will drop the title to Carmella this early in her title reign. I wish that Carmella would have gotten a bit more time on the mic to set this match-up because I feel that she is underutilized on the mic at times and she is great as a heel.

Prediction: Bianca Belair

Jon: This is by far the easiest match on the card to predict. Bianca was originally penciled in to defend her title against Rhea Ripley, but that match was scratched after the Judgement Day member was pulled with an injury. Carmella then won the opportunity to fill Rhea’s place. I firmly believe that there is zero chance that Mrs. Graves walks out as the new Raw Women’s Champion. Bianca retains and hopefully they start to build back towards the EST vs The Nightmare.

Prediction: Bianca Belair

Katrina: Speaking with all bias right now, I don’t see Bianca losing. Bianca retains.

Prediction: Bianca Belair

SmackDown Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey vs. Natalya

Jeremy: I’m looking forward to this match after their controversial promo on SmackDown last week. Ronda definitely got a bit personal with Nattie, and some thought that she went a bit too far. If you haven’t seen it then you should check it out. Rousey will make Natalya tap out to the arm bar.

Prediction: Ronda Rousey

Jon: Yawn I’m sorry, but both of these women are boring to me and I have basically no interest in this match. Like the Raw Women’s Championship match, the outcome of this one feels pretty obvious. Natalya is just a roadblock in the bigger picture of Rousey’s second championship run as we get closer to SummerSlam. The real question is “Who’s next after Nattie?”

Prediction: Ronda Rousey

Katrina: I wouldn’t mind seeing Nattie as the champ again, but I don’t see Ronda losing just yet. Going with Ronda to retain.

Prediction: Ronda Rousey

Men’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match: Seth Rollins vs. Drew McIntyre vs. Sheamus vs. Omos vs. Sami Zayn vs. Riddle vs. TBA

Jeremy: I don’t see a clear favorite in the field. I think a lot of people believe that it has to be Seth Rollins to take the briefcase since he is coming off three consecutive losses to Cody Rhodes. Seth is so good that he can endure a losing streak and still maintain his relevance though. I would like to see Sami Zayn walk away with the briefcase so that he will be the guy that causes Roman Reigns to lose the title when he attempts to betray the Bloodline and cash in on Roman Reigns’ match with Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam.

Prediction: Sami Zayn

Jon: I really like this lineup so far. There’s a nice mixture of bigs to act as anchors for the “smaller” guys to do their things. With the exception of Omos, Sheamus, and probably Sami, I could realistically see any of these men becoming the next Mr. Money in the Bank. Drew will most likely be headed for a title match soon anyway, so I doubt it will be him. The best option here, in my opinion, would be to go with Rollins and lead to Seth vs. Roman in an epic showdown.

Prediction: Seth Rollins

Katrina: Out of all the men that are in this, I can see Seth Rollins taking this and using it to his advantage. Considering he has lost many of his feuds recently, this could be a nice way to get him back into the title picture.

Prediction: Seth Rollins

Women’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match: Lacey Evans vs. Alexa Bliss vs. Liv Morgan vs. Raquel Rodriguez vs. Asuka vs. Shotzi vs. Becky Lynch

Jeremy: I hope that we see the return of Bayley in this match but I feel that they may wait until SummerSlam now to bring her back. Without her being in the match, I believe that WWE may surprise everyone and give the briefcase to Shotzi since she has been so prominently featured in WWE programming recently.

Prediction: Shotzi

Jon: Now this match should be great. A legit argument could be made for any woman in this match, including Shotzi. Maybe not so much Liv Morgan, but whatever. Becky Lynch doesn’t need the MITB to get a title match whenever she wants, so that takes her out. My money is on either Alexa Bliss or Raquel Rodriguez. In my opinion, Raquel could be the perfect looming threat for either women’s champion to look over their shoulder for.

Prediction: Raquel Rodriguez

Katrina: So, I can see this going a few ways. I can see Shotzi getting a win and hopefully WWE using it correctly. I can also see Becky if they want to play with Becky in the Bank or Backs in the Bank or something like that—especially since they made her work extra to get a spot in the MITB match. Lastly, I can see Raquel winning as she can give Ronda a run for her money and it seems WWE is behind her. I said all of that to say, I’m going with Raquel.

Prediction: Raquel Rodriguez
