WWE Money in the Bank Predictions, Pay Per View Matches, Schedule: Home-State Advantage for Dean Ambrose?
The WWE is back in Dean Ambrose's home state of Ohio, and it could be the location where he becomes, officially, the World Heavyweight Champion.
"Kickoff" Show: King Bad News Barrett vs. R-Truth:
"WWE Money in the Bank" begins with the "Kickoff" show featuring King Bad News Barrett in a singles match against R-Truth. The match was thrown in randomly with a small build up during "SmackDown" as Truth mocked Barrett by wearing his "King" wardrobe during his match.
In all honesty, both Barrett and Truth should have a role in the Money in the Bank briefcase ladder match. In the end, Truth will likely get the win to start the show on a positive note.
WWE Intercontinental Championship: Ryback (c) vs. Big Show:
Ryback's first major feud since winning the Intercontinental Championship is against Big Show. It isn't bad feud since it will help Ryback establish himself, and the championship, further if he defeats Big Show.
The feud has potential to continue for at least another pay-per-view event, but regardless, Ryback will end victorious.
WWE Tag Team Championship: The New Day (Big E and Xavier Woods) (c) vs. The Prime Time Players (Darren Young and Titus O'Neil):
The tag-team division has been a highlight during the past few months, and some credit goes to The New Day since officially becoming heels. The New Day, specifically Kofi Kingston and Big E, won the titles but with Kingston participating in the Money in the Bank briefcase ladder match, Xavier Woods will step in. The Prime Time Players have also been on a momentum streak, following weeks on consecutive video promos and among the final tag teams in the Elimination Chamber match, Darren Young and Titus O'Neil have definitely proven themselves to be potentially tag-team champions.
It is a tough one to call. The Prime Time Players deserved a tag-team title run ever since their first stint together, but the decision to put the titles around them never came. The New Day are too over with the crowd to lose the titles. In the end, the Prime Time Players aee the prediction; however, The New Day, rightfully, deserve a second reign sooner rather than later.

WWE Divas Championship: Nikki Bella (c) vs. Paige:
Paige gets another title shot against champion Nikki Bella. The storyline has been the same while Nikki has been tossed from heel to face -- specifically during her feud with Naomi -- to heel again in a matter of weeks. Paige said she wants to revitalize, or save, the Divas division from The Bella Twins, but the prediction will not be positive for her.
Nikki, surprisingly, has had a nice reign as Divas Champion, and it is time for that to end. Paige, however, should not be the winner against Nikki. With "Total Divas" set to return in a few weeks, one of the storylines is Nikki as Divas Champion, and it might be awkward to have her lose the title while she's carrying it on the "reality" show. Paige, eventually, will get her third reign, but it won't be on Sunday night.
John Cena vs. Kevin Owens:
Considered as one of the best matches at "Elimination Chamber," the rematch is confirmed that same night. John Cena will not defend his United States Championship nor will Kevin Owens put up his NXT Championship. The feud continues to be about Owens having the true veteran status - wrestling across the independent wrestling scene for 15 years, while Cena appearing on WWE television for almost as long. Cena says he's the veteran, but Owens disagrees.
Owens already has a victory, and the wild guess would be for Cena to equal the game - 1-1. The prediction, however, is for another Owens victory.
Money in the Bank Briefcase Ladder Match: Dolph Ziggler vs. Neville vs. Roman Reigns vs. Randy Orton vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Sheamus vs. Kane:
It is the annual match, and this year there is a mixture of new-names and veterans. One name, however, has received most of the spotlight: Roman Reigns. Sunday night could be his night. But with Reigns getting most of the attention, the WWE could swerve viewers by awarding the briefcase to another name - perhaps "the newest sensation" Neville or Randy Orton.
Some participants are automatically not winning, namely Kane, Kingston and Ziggler. Sheamus won't win either and a loss won't hurt him here. Neville won't win either, since it will be too soon since his main-roster debut, and honestly, he's likely in the match to fly off a ladder. The eyes should be on Reigns and Orton. For Orton, it is unknown when his next World Heavyweight Championship title shot will occur, but he is still a main event. Reigns could win it, except most Money in the Bank winners encounter losing streaks and we all know the WWE is building Reigns as its next top star. It might be too obvious to pick Reigns to win, but then again, it was also too obvious he would win the Royal Rumble and yet he did. With that noted, Reigns wins the match because Vince McMahon says so.
WWE World Heavyweight Championship: Seth Rollins (c) vs. Dean Ambrose:
Seth Rollins is still champion, but since "Elimination Chamber," Dean Ambrose has held onto the championship. Since their last match, Rollins has managed to alienate members of The Authority and will likely enter Sunday night without support. Ambrose has the support from the WWE Universe no matter his actions.
An actual, and official, win for Ambrose would be great, but Rollins will maintain the title. A Rollins victory would ensure that he could capture a victory without The Authority's help.
