WWE Money in the Bank 2023 early match card predictions

This year’s WWE Money in the Bank premium live event will take place on July 1st, 2023, at The O2 Arena in London, England. This will be the first time the Money in the Bank event or match has taken place outside the United States. This is coming off the success of WWE’s first UK premium live event in years, Clash at the Castle.

There is no doubt WWE will try to top the success of that event with this one. With just under a month before the event, let’s take a dive into the potential match card.

Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match

The two matches we are guaranteed to see at the event are the Money in the Bank ladder matches for both the men and the women.

The major prediction comes in as far as participants are concerned. WWE has been holding qualifying matches on both Monday Night RAW and Friday Night Smackdown. Shinsuke Nakamura, Ricochet and LA Knight have already qualified for the match, leaving three spots left. Based on the qualifying matches left, I believe Butch and Mustafa Ali are going to take two of those spots.

There is no final qualifying match announced, but it will most likely come from RAW. I am going to predict Finn Balor to take the last spot, making our participants Nakamura, Ricochet, Knight, Butch, Ali and Balor. This would have the potential to be one of the best Money in the Bank matches of all time.

Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match

The only confirmed competitor for this match thus far is Zelina Vega.

Coming hot off her match against Rhea Ripley at WWE Backlash and the reemergence of the LWO, she is incredibly over right now. Becky Lynch has a qualifying match against Sonya Deville, but based on her current program with Trish Stratus I am expecting her to be left out of the match.

Based on the remaining qualifying matches, I am predicting Zoey Stark, IYO SKY, and Bayley will also participate. The last remaining spot will most likely go to a woman from the RAW roster — my guess is Raquel Rodriguez. This would leave us with a matchup of Vega, Stark, Deville, SKY, Bayley and Rodriguez. Both Money in the Bank matches have the potential to steal the show.

WWE Tag Team Championship Match: Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn (c) v Imperium

It seems as if Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn are finally done with The Bloodline. You never know what could happen, but it seems that The Bloodline’s main focus has become internal.

In recent weeks, Owens and Zayn have had repeated run-ins with Imperium. They defeated them in a non-title match before watching Imperium score a victory over Alpha Academy while Owens and Zayn were on commentary. It seems as if this will be leading to the championship match in Imperium’s home continent.

Intercontinental Championship Match: Gunther (c) v Drew McIntyre

At this year’s WWE Wrestlemania Gunther and Drew McIntyre had a hands down match of the year candidate along with Sheamus, even though we have never seen the two of them face off in a singles match.

This would have the potential to be the match of the year. Gunther is one of the most consistent wrestlers today when it comes to giving high-level performances, and McIntyre has shown he can go with the best of them. Drew has been away from television since Wrestlemania, but now is the perfect time for a return.

RAW Women’s Championship Match: Asuka (c) v Bianca Belair

Asuka recently ended the historic title reign of Bianca Belair at WWE Night of Champions. After such an excellent reign, it is unfathomable to think Bianca Belair will not be first in line for a shot at the title she just lost, especially considering the current standings are at one win a piece for each Asuka and Belair.

Bianca Belair has been teasing a heel turn, and I think we get finally get it at Money in the Bank. I honestly do not know how the matchup will play out, though I cannot imagine Asuka losing the title this soon. However, a Belair heel turn might be the perfect way to put it back on her.

Becky Lynch v Trish Stratus

Stratus and Lynch delivered an impressive match at WWE Night of Champions. Stratus was able to score the victory after a surprise alliance with Zoey Stark helped her. With Stark focused on the Money in the Bank match, here is the perfect time to have Becky Lynch get her victory back over Trish Stratus. This would even them up at one win each, leading to a rubber match at WWE Sumerslam.

World Heavyweight Championship Match: Seth Rollins (c) v Dominik Mysterio

Seth Rollins is undoubtedly the most popular wrestler on the planet today. He cannot enter an arena all over the world without the crowd singing his song at the top of their lungs.

There is no better person for him to face than the most hated heel in all of wrestling today, Dominik Mysterio. Dominik Mysterio hears deafening boos every time he enters an arena. The reaction is by far louder than almost any other in wrestling today. Combine that with how over Seth Rollins is, you have a recipe for a match that will have the crowd invested and screaming at the top of their lungs.

Dominik with Rhea Ripley at his side, combined with the potential of Finn Balor winning Money in the Bank as an insurance plan, could lead to a really fun first program for Seth Rollins as World Heavyweight Champion.

Roman Reigns & Solo Sikoa v The Usos

The collapse of The Bloodline is finally happening. After dominating the WWE for the last few years, Roman Reigns has lost control of the faction that helped the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion maintain that control.

Jimmy Uso delivered not one, but two super kicks to the Tribal Chief at WWE Night of Champions. It seemed as if Jimmy had enough of Roman’s abuse. He attempted to apologize at Roman’s 1000-Day celebration, but The Tribal Chief instead had Solo Sikoa attack his own older brother.

There is no question The Usos will not forgive Roman Reigns for turning their own little brother against them. Roman Reigns is not going to forgive The Usos for turning their back on him. This is one of the most anticipated matchups in years and has the potential to be the culmination of the greatest storyline in decades.
