Backstage News on Money in the Bank, Lesnar Expected Back Before August, Superstars

Posted by Matt Boone June 21, 2012 10 Comments

- Matches for today’s WWE Superstars episode are Ezekiel Jackson vs. Hunico, Zack Ryder vs. Drew McIntyre plus tag team action with Curt Hawkins and Tyler Reks vs. Tyson Kidd and Justin Gabriel.

– While WWE is advertising Brock Lesnar for the August 13th go-home RAW Supershow for SummerSlam, he will likely be back earlier than that, perhaps on the 1,000th RAW.

– Alberto Del Rio vs. Sheamus for the World Heavyweight Title will likely take place at the July 15th Money in the Bank pay-per-view. Like last year, there will be two Money in the Bank ladder matches on the card. Money in the Bank is a bit of a throw-away pay-per-view as they’re gearing more for SummerSlam in August with Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar headlining.

      Put Ryback in a MITB with 5 local wrestlers

      I wish they’d get rid of MITB and replace it with “War Games” WCW style. The whole concept of MITB is ridiculous, even in storyline. I’d much sooner see a decent title match, than someone jump in the ring and pin an unconscious opponent for his strap.

        Wasn’t wargames like survivor series in a cage, i would love to see that come back.

    • wwe sucks

      one money in the bank per year is enough.. he can choose any champ to cash.. but two is dumb where obvious two both title will change hands in next year.. there is no suspence etc… and one should cash in a good match also… rvd did on cena.. if i remember… not jst always the idea of cashing on lying pray… wwe has become more and more obivious.. one can gues all the senerios that will happen..

      I want MITB to go back to Wrestlemania…

      @RealDustyRhodesNot War Games were played out at WCW Fall Brawl generally. It was usually a 2 team, 2 ring, double sized cage affair. Each team started out one on one, then at alternating intervals a team member from each side entered the cage. Once every member of each team was in the cage, the match beyond began. The match ended when a member of either team gave in, making the other team the winners.
