@JoeyStyles: I’ve been saying this frequently in predictions; picking a winner in a seven-Superstar Ladder Match really is a guess. Still, based on his recent career trajectory, I’m guessing Roman Reigns will win the contract as karma for Seth Rollins cashing in his contract at WrestleMania on Reigns. WINNER: Roman Reigns
@HowardFinkel: This is one of my favorite matches. It’s a mixed bag of Superstar styles and strategies that will end with one competitor gaining possession of the vaunted briefcase and contract within. And I truly believe that fate will be in the corner of Sheamus. For some reason, I just feel that The Celtic Warrior, who looks great to me, will be primed to outlast the field and lay claim to the valuable piece of luggage at the top of the ladder. WINNER: Sheamus
Jeff Laboon: Kofi Kingston is one of the most athletic, acrobatic Superstars ever, but he’s never challenged for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship one-on-one in his eight-year career. Big E and Xavier Woods will do their part to fix that. WINNER: Kofi Kingston
Matthew Artus: Everybody loves a Cinderella story, which may make Roman Reigns or Neville a trendy pick. Yet, Kofi Kingston is one appearance shy for the most Money in the Bank Ladder Match entries without a victory. He won’t tie Christian’s record. WINNER: Kofi Kingston
Bobby Melok: Though he has been on the main roster for a few months, I expect Money in the Bank to be Neville’s coming out party. The New Sensation won the NXT Championship in a Ladder Match, so will surely be out to show why he’s called The Man That Gravity Forgot, and pick up a guaranteed WWE World Heavyweight Title Match along the way. WINNER: Neville
Kofi Kingston: 2, Roman Reigns: 1, Sheamus: 1, Neville: 1
