It’s time for just the second WWE PPV event in front of a live audience since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The organization heads to Fort Worth, Texas, on Sunday night for Money in the Bank with a quintet of title matches as well as the namesake matches for the event on both the men’s and women’s side.

That said, Lashley is very unlikely to drop the title here. WWE has just started to tell the story of Lashley’s aura of dominance beginning to crack and he hasn’t completely descended to where it makes sense to move the title yet. Kingston will give a spirited effort before ultimately coming up short. Pick: Bobby Lashley to retain the…
