Possible Winner of WWE Money In The Bank Revealed


Jinder Mahal’s huge win on Smackdown Live last week was one that sent the internet into a frenzy. As soon as Mahal pinned the beloved Sami Zayn for a 3 count, #JinderMahal began trending worldwide. It was a surprise moment that sent the minds of fans thinking of what the plans are going forward with the WWE Championship. This moment was not the original plan that WWE had set in place.

Dave Meltzer reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that the original plan for WWE Backlash was to have Baron Corbin challenge Randy Orton for The Viper’s recently won WWE Title. The plan was changed and Jinder Mahal was called upon to step in to that spot as number one contender. Meltzer said the decision was a part of their push in the India market. The Indian viewership is in the top 3 of the WWE’s demographic. The push of Mahal could mean even bigger numbers for the blue brand

Baron isn’t left in the dust however as he is being billed as the next winner of the “Money in the Bank” event and will soon be pushed as the top Heel on Smackdown.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
