WWE Money In The Bank is still five months away but betting odds for the first pay-per-view after WrestleMania 36 have already begun surfacing in the IWC.
According to Sky Bet, former NXT North American Champion Velveteen Dream is the odds on favorite to win the Men’s Money In The Bank ladder match next year. The young star is closely followed by ex-Universal Champion Kevin Owens.
Reigning NXT Champion Adam Cole comes in at #3, sharing the same odds as Finn Balor, Big E and Seth Rollins.
Who will grab the coveted briefcase is anyone’s guess, but it’s interesting to see Dream topping the list for now. The 24-year old Superstar has been sidelined with injuries since September.
On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that Roode and Dolph Ziggler were set to challenge The New Day for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship at TLC. However, plans have been changed following Roode’s suspension.
“Wednesday of last week when I got the card for TLC the card was New Day against Bobby Roode and Dolph Ziggler so that injury was not meant to be a long term injury so I think that the injury wouldn’t have anything to do with it because I was told it was Bobby Roode and Dolph Ziggler I was told that there could be a chance this might be changed.”
Meltzer further noted that WWE is likely aware of the failed drug tests for quite a while because the guilty Superstars aren’t suspended immediately.
“You know I know guys who they announced it and suspended them months after [failing the drug test] — I won’t say months, but six weeks. I know of one guy who failed a test six weeks and wasn’t told about it for six weeks because they — whatever they’re going to suspend them when they get around to suspending them. It’s not like it’s gonna be the next day.”
