The innovative concept of the Money In The Bank briefcase has been a career catapult for many wrestlers in WWE, with the majority being able to make the jump from the middle of the card straight into the main event scene by winning the ladder match and cashing in. Unfortunately, This brilliant concept has been hampered within the past couple of years, with the big problem is that a lot of the most recent holders of the briefcase (specifically Asuka, Brock Lesnar, Alexa Bliss  Bayley & The Miz) have been wrestlers that have reached the top of the mountain before, leaving the concept stagnant.

However, this year feels different as both Money in the Bank Ladder matches are filled with performers that had either been underutilized or had never been given the chance to shine. If there was ever a time to catapult someone from the slumber to the top of the chain, it is now, and perhaps there is no option as fresh as SmackDown wrestler, Liv Morgan.

The Women’s Money In The Bank Winner Should be Liv Morgan

She has experienced a career of Ups & Downs since joining the company in 2014, with her being trusted with gluing together the RAW Women’s division as part of the Riott Squad with Ruby Riott and Sarah Logan. Unfortunately for her, she was never highlighted as a singles competitor until the start of 2020, where she was brought back after 6 months of no TV appearances as a part of the feud between Bobby Lashley and Rusev, being revealed as Lana’s Kayfabe former lover.

As popular as this story was and as talented Liv Morgan was, it did not work out for her as the storyline was quickly dropped after she beat Lana in a singes match, which led to a feud with her former Riott Squad partner, Ruby Riott. This feud was short-lived and she was off the television during a big portion of WWE’s run in the Performance Center. She briefly reunited with Ruby Riott once WWE went to the Thunderdome, but their run was cut short after Riott was released from her WWE contract on June 2nd. This move seemed to be what would put a halt to her future in WWE, but things took a turn for the positive in a quick fashion.

After getting a three match winning streak, which included her beating a returning Zelina Vega clean as a whistle, Liv Morgan was inserted into the Women’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match. She was inserted after Carmella dropped out of the match to challenge Bianca Belair after the former challenger, Bayley, got an injury that would sideline her for 9 months. While the opportunity comes from an unfortunate circumstance, she has to be the top candidate to become the winner for the Briefcase.

She has the right profile tailor-made for MITB holders, as she is someone that has not been given the chance to shine on her own. In fact, her journey is very similar to that of Edge, the first-ever holder of the briefcase. Both were separated from their Tag Team partners after they left WWE, were given significant momentum when they became singles competitors and, most importantly, both are a breath of fresh air to the Title picture.

SmackDown’s Women’s division has been stagnant with most of the titles feuds involving some sort of rematch or redo of the previous storyline, and adding Liv Morgan to the mix and feuding with some of the new members of the Smackdown roster (Mia Yim, Tegan Nox, Shotzi & Toni Storm) and the fresh champion in Bianca Belair, the Women’s Division would be in the best position since Smackdown moved to the Thunderdome. WWE needs new and legitimate stars, and if Liv can manage to have a fraction of the impact that the Rated-R Superstar managed to have on WWE’s Main Event scene in 2005, the company will be in a very good position. All that is left to say is that we should Watch Her.
