WWE Money in the Bank 2017: 3 Last-Minute Predictions

1. Lana Wins the SmackDown Women’s Championship

Talking of the SmackDown Women’s Championship, are you ready for Lana to shock the world? You should be, because it’s going to happen at Money in the Bank.

The more the Superstars on SmackDown put Lana down and mock her lack of experience in the ring, the more I think she’ll find a way to steal victory and the championship from Naomi.

This kind of reverse psychology isn’t uncommon in the WWE. Lana isn’t built as a legitimate threat to the Women’s Champion, as was evident when Naomi, along with all five competitors of the Money in the Bank Ladder Match, burst into laughter when she requested to be added to the match.

This probably didn’t help Lana’s role as a heel. Along with the “We want Lana” chants that echoed throughout the arena, the fact she was being belittled by her peers made you feel sympathy for her.

Naomi’s overconfidence may come back to haunt her by taking Lana lightly, and don’t think for moment The Ravishing Russian will care how she wins, whether it’s via a rollup or even by bending the rules to her advantage.

How long Lana holds the championship is an entirely different question. Maybe she will lose the gold within minutes of winning it, all depending on whether the Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match takes place before the Naomi-Lana contest.
