Quote According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, it was also speculated on the radio show that one of Kevin Owens or Alexa Bliss could win the Money in the Bank match this weekend, but likely not both since WWE will probably want one winner from each brand. The main reason for this speculation is that both Owens and Bliss fit the mold of the type of character who would try to cash in the briefcase at an opportune time.
 
Kevin Owens I can see having a chance as he needs to be back where he should be towards the top of a card.
 
Alexa I think would have zero chance. She's been overexposed for so long and now it's a chance for others to shine.
 
We don't need to see her fueding with Nia again.

Sometimes Meltzer comes out with some absolute bollocks mind

"The both fit the type that would cash in at an opportune time". Surely everyone would hence why they are in the MITB.

This just looks like hes throwing names around that people havent really leaned towards yet and is trying to justify it with one of the most obvious points ive ever heard.

I dont think there has ever been a MITB winner that has tried to cash in when the odds of success have been less than even and therefore not opportune

Only one. Rob Van Dam. He challenged a much more heavily favoured opponent but used his choice of arena to throw Cena off. It was great storytelling.

I do think Meltzer is just pulling names out of nowhere. One thing you'll notice with the WON is that over the course of the build he will predict every single possible winner and then people will attribute whichever one turns out right to have been the sole prediction. It's not even him that does it; fans just decide the right guess was the only guess.

There's no doubt that Alexa is a true opportunist and her character on Smackdown Live was built like that. On Raw however those elements are absent to the point of nonexistant. I hope to see them again soon because she was developing that Edge-like quality. 

That said, I'd put Owens and Bliss very low down on the totem pole of potential winners.

Keeping it spoiler free:

Bryan v Cass was crap
Zayn v Lashley was one of the worst matches ive ever seen
Rollins v Elias was awesome
Womens MITB was awesome
Carmella v Asuka was crap
Reigns v Jinder was too full of rest holds - plus the crowd really hated on it
Styles v Nakamura was boring again and they really have failed to live up to the hype in this feud
Jax v Rousey was MOTN for me
Mens MITB was average - not as good as the womens

Overall Show - B-/C+

I'll post our full review but personally my quick recap is:

-Bryan vs Cass was far better than first showing and it was a hell of a lot better than some think.
-Zayn vs Lashley was dog shit
-Rollins vs Elias was good but never hit that next gear for me
-Womens MITB was fantastic
-Carmella vs Asuka was weird
-Reigns vs Jinder was boring
-Styles vs Nakamura was freaking incredible.  And the thing that pissed me off the most about it was the fact I knew I woild get online and see people shit all over it.  That was a GREAT match and EASILY match of the night and a solid MOTY candidate.
-Jax vs Rousey was pretty good and Ronda was better than Nia,  LOVED the finish.
-Mens MITB was a hell of a lot of fun.  Probably not as good as womens but still really good.  The spots were fantastic.

Full Review video

Bryan/Cass: Test Lite tapping again was great and Bryan did the best he could with the opponent he got dealth.

Zayn/Lashley: Pointless squash please let it be the end of it.

Rollins/Elias: As entertaining as the matches Seth puts on as part of Raw every week.

Womens MITB: Lots of predictable ladder spots and not much else. Took the women ages to move the ladder into place and struggling to unhook the briefcase despite being up there alone.

Carmella/Asuka: Ellsworth did his best to save the borefest.

Reigns/Jinder: Typical smarky Chicago crowd of CM Puke fans trying to make it about them with a this is awful chant when it wasn't and a Mexican wave.

Styles/Nakamura: Another great match between them. The best of the night and the best these two have had on their current run. Styles Clash on the stairs was fab.

Jax/Rousey: Too short so didn't live up to the hype at all. Another easy night for Rousey on her bumper pay.

Mens MITB: Seven guys couldn't take out one Sleepy Nothing memorable about it.

Overall I would say B- in that it's what I am used to now of an event that 4:15 for 2.50 a week on the Network I can't complain. But if it had been the days of 14.99 on Sky Box Office I wouldn't have felt value for money.

Didn't see the pre show and missed the Daniel Brian vs Big Cass match but that's forgettable so who cares.

Lashley vs Zayn was a big squash Lashley needs something more then a vertical suplex as a finisher.

Women's money in the bank match was good I really wanted Becky to win the match I was quite upset when Alexa won it

Roman vs Jinder was actually not bad I'd give it a 3 out of 5 which better then most matches involving Jinder the crowd though just destroyed it by being the smark crowd Chicago usually is.

Elias vs Rollins was great probably Elias best match he's had on the main roster.

I enjoyed his musical concert especially when the crowd chanted we are morons he just looked confused by their reaction.

Mens money in the bank was good Braun was just an absolute beast in there and Mizs reaction was just perfect when Braun Ran through the ladder.

Ronda vs Nia was good easily Nias best match she was great on offence and that tease for the armbar was good even the cash in by Alexa was good (I still would've preferred Becky being miss money in the bank).

Carmella vs Asuka was good for the most part right until once more James Elsworth showed his chinless face again god I hate this guy like my hatred of him is on par with Kondors hate of Elias.
