Brock Lesnar won the 2019 edition of Money in the Bank to make most of the pro-wrestling fans angry about it. First of all, it does mean that he is coming back in the championship picture. (If not winning the title) Secondly, there were more deserved winners who put their bodies on the line during the match who saw an outside taking away the prize.
Thirdly, when it comes to the cash-in context of Money in the Bank, future planning is bound to make the fans upset. If the current plans remain intact then there will be no thrill part in it as Brock Lesnar will cash-in the contract earlier than the match completely ruining the anticipation. Moreover, it will set up an expected match for the Universal Championship.
As reported by Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Brock Lesnar will demand a Universal Championship match against Seth Rollins via Money in the Bank contract. The match will go down at the Super ShowDown event in Saudi Arabia as one of the main events of the night. As we all know, this is going to be the rematch between these two from Wrestlemania 35.
Meltzer highlighted the fact that Heyman mentioned his client Brock Lesnar will attend next week’s Monday Night Raw. He will reveal the champion he would target i.e. either Seth Rollins or Kofi Kingston. Interestingly, WWE has already announced Kofi vs. Dolph Ziggler for the WWE Championship on Smackdown. So there’s no option available for Lesnar to cash-in other than Rollins, anyway.
The reliable source delivered the following statements that would definitely disappoint the WWE fans,
“At the end of the show they actually instead said that Brock Lesnar’s gonna say who he’s gonna wrestle whether it be Seth Rollins or Kofi Kingston next week what he’s going to do which I’m figuring is just going to be the match in Saudi Arabia that he was always going to do anyway.”
One of the most important parts of Money in the Bank matches comes with the uncertainty about the cash-in. When someone like Brock Lesnar predominantly announce it, there’s no point of hosting the ladder match, anyway. Additionally, there’s no point of giving away the briefcase to Brock Lesnar who could have demanded the title match just because he can. WWE already wasted the 2017 and 2018 men’s division MITB winners. If Rollins continues his title reign, the fate of the 2019 winner will be no different.
