For the third month in a row, the WWE gave us another new PPV concept. Money In The Bank was a fast-paced show with plenty of action and questions left unanswered. As always here at N1P, I keep track of my PPV predictions and provide a running tally of my record. Below is the card in order along with my picks and the actual outcome.

Smackdown Money In The Bank Ladder Match

Predicted winner: Drew McIntyre

Winner: Kane (Drew was SO close!)

0-1

Alicia Fox v. Eve Torres – WWE Divas Championship

Predicted winner: Alicia Fox

Winner: Alicia Fox

1-1

The Hart Dynasty v. The Usos – WWE Unified Tag Team Championship

Predicted winner: The Hart Dynasty

Winner: The Hart Dynasty

2-1

Rey Mysterio v. Jack Swagger – WWE World Heavyweight Championship

Predicted winner: Rey Mysterio

Winner: Rey Mysterio (with the Angle/Eddie “loose boot” twist)

3-1

Kane then cashes in his MITB briefcase on Mysterio to become the new WHC (I was half-right; I did say the Smackdown MITB winner would cash it in on Mysterio).

Fun fact (via PWInsider): Kane is the first wrestler in WWE history to hold the WWE, World Heavyweight and ECW Championships under the auspices of the WWE. The Big Show has won all three, but his WHC reign occurred while the title was still in WCW.

Layla El v. Kelly Kelly – WWE Women’s Champion

Predicted winner: Kelly Kelly

Winner: Layla El

3-2

Raw Money In The Bank Ladder Match

Predicted winner: John Morrison

Winner: The Miz

3-3

Sheamus v. John Cena – Steel Cage Match for the WWE Championship

Predicted outcome: No contest

Outcome: Sheamus

Final Total: 3-4
