Money in the Bank is a week away and there are few favorites to win the men’s briefcase. Seth Rollins jumps off the page as an individual who remains hot with fans and would excel in that antagonistic role. However, Sami Zayn should be the one to win the match, giving him that main event push that has eluded him throughout his run on the main roster.
Zayn is doing some of the best work of his career. The character he’s playing since 2020 remains one of the highlights on WWE television. Yes, he’s filling in a role as a comedic performer, but when he’s given the opportunity to wrestle, he quickly reminds viewers that he can go with any other superstar on the roster. His performance with Johnny Knoxville at WrestleMania 38 stole the show in a way no one expected.
Image Zayn with the briefcase while attempting to remain in the good graces of Roman Reigns and The Bloodline. It’s already comical enough that he’s cozying up to Heyman and the crew but giving him the briefcase and watching him attempt to cash in for the title shot would be hilarious. Is there a glimmer of hope that he could get a run with one of the two titles? Perhaps, but there hasn’t been a lot of evidence that WWE wants to put him in the top position on either show.
Much like Kevin Owens, Zayn is a performer who can do wonderful things even with the little that is given to him as a part of the main roster. He has a long track record, both within the WWE and outside the promotion, which proves he can get the job done when booked as the top star. Look like his run with WWE NXT is yet another example. Giving him the briefcase and perhaps placing him as a champion would spark the interest of fans as it would be a breath of fresh air at the top of the card. One that is needed to shake things up in the promotion.
WWE Money in the Bank is a chance for WWE to do something that captures the attention of fans who think the promotion has lost touch with creative booking. Putting the briefcase in the hands of Sami Zayn, and letting one of the best, all-around performers in the industry do his thing would be the right choice and it’s the exact shot in the arm that the men’s division needs right now.
