    What route would you take for MITB?

    Now that Jeff Hardy is out and suspended, as sad as they may be, it's time to look forward. I think WWE has a lot of possibilities here. You have Kennedy who has a lot of history with the briefcase and a promise to fulfill, you have Jericho who just won the I.C. strap and is in desperate need of a longterm storyline, and you have Matt/MVP who could potentially feud over the briefcase and in turn could elevate their rivalry to main event status with both men coming out of it looking equally as viable a contender.

    Thought and opinions, please.

    Re: What route would you take for MITB?

    I wouldnt mind seeing matt hardy getting into money in the bank and winning it and get elevated into the main event scene where I think jeff was heading by winning it this year. Kennedy would be a horrible choice to win it, what has he done latley? boring as sin! he was better when he was on roids now his in ring ability is punching and kicking, what horrible matches with him and hhh and cena that could be on the horizon if he wins. Those ppvs would not be worth the money. MVP also could be eleavted with a win and could have a decent fued with edge and undertaker in the main event

    Re: What route would you take for MITB?

    I like the idea of Hardy and MVP fighting over it but I am not sure how well that would work with The Undertaker as the champion. At this point, I would really like to see Jericho win but I would predict Kennedy. As long as they don't give it to Punk to cash in against Chavo I am cool. Also, I don't see any of the entrants actually carrying the belt for more than a month if they do actually win it.

    Re: What route would you take for MITB?

    I agree with you, whoever wins it will not have it long at all. It might be a very loooooonnnng spring and summer with HHH vs cena main events, if thats the case ill just watch the shows each week and forget about buying the PPV's, I love WWE but Enough is Enough with repeating matches after matches and weak PPV's except for NO WAY OUT I really enjoyed that and to this day I think they had to good of a PPV before mania. I got an investment in ROH dvds after mania instead of buying WWE PPV's

    Re: What route would you take for MITB?

    Good answers so far. I think its important to bring the MITB case back to its original roots. Instant credibility for a sneaky heel win ala Edge. I love the idea of a heel winning it and cheating to win his first title.

    Although I see Jericho most likely getting it as he seems to need it the most, but it would have to be against Edge once he regains it off The Undertaker post mania. Like JohnnyMayCry said, whoever wins this MITB is in for a long spring and summer holding a briefcase because there wont be any time or room to play off a new rivalry.

    It would almost be better if whoever won the MITB case didnt actually carry it around all the time. The announcers could simply mention it in passing. It would be nice to see the winner only bring the case out whenever its relevant. For example, if the champion is in a 3 in 1 handicap match against the MITB winner and two other dudes. Once they win, he hands in the briefcase type of thing. Or the MITB winner could start randomly showing up to the champions matches and kinda just hovering around the outside of the ring with the briefcase and tease using it.

    There are many possiblilities. I would have preffered to see them let Punk have a chance, but whoever wins this one it wont be all that special to me unless they go heel.

    Re: What route would you take for MITB?

    ive heard they arent filling jeffs spot, and keeping the MITB down to 7 men. which means matt wont be in it =[.

    i think jericho should win..

    im a jeff fan of course...

    this is what i would like see play out.

    y2j snags the breifcase and when jeff comes off his suspension gets his IC rematch. Y2J arrogantly accepts saying he can beat him easily, so jeff ups the anti saying then put the MITB case on the line as well... jeff wins both and his wwe title push is restored...


    thats just me

    Re: What route would you take for MITB?

    I definitely don't see them letting Jeff take the MITB off the winner. He won't be just pushed to the moon again after coming back from his second suspension. All the faith McMahon and co apparently had in him will now all have to be regained now.

    Anyways, with the Matt Hardy idea which I quite liked clearly not going to happen, I want Punk to win and go after some of the "bigger" gold outside of ECW. However, I'm thinking Jericho's the man who needs this most as he needs a long-term storyline to push him back to the main event and this is pretty much the obvious answer.

    And he scores goals...!

    Re: What route would you take for MITB?

    There is no way Jeff will come back from the suspension he received whilst in the midst of a title push to receive another one. That would just be moronic.

    I'm going with Kennedy, simply for the fact that he needs it. I don't like the guy, but it could really make his career, much like it did with Edge, who was a glorified midcarder for life until he cashed in his MITB shot. Punk is an outside chance, and the title holders in Jericho and MVP have no chance. Carlito and Shelton are just filler. I wouldn't be surprised seeing Matt Hardy enter as the eight man, but he has little chance of winning too, especially since he needs to get even with MVP and take his title.

    What I would like to see is Carlito or Shelton win. It'd be surprising to see a real underdog win. Secondly, he could go on to cash it in that night and lose to the Undertaker. It'll then be 17-0 and that massive 20-0 match just got closer. It would seriously break the mold of predictable winners and MITB winners (much like Rumble winners) always going on to win the gold.

    I know Kennedy said he'd challenge that night, but Carlito or Benjamin is a better choice since they're massive underdogs, and would get a better match out of Taker than Kennedy would.

    Re: What route would you take for MITB?

    Carlito or Benjamin cashing in against Taker after the main event is very anti-climatic and would be a total squash if it happened. Heels are sneaky, not stupid so the only way I see it happening is if Edge and his buddies beat down Taker and then Kennedy comes out and cashes in, thus forming an alliance with Edge. That doesn't make sense either though because Edge would want a title shot and logically Taker would just end up with the belt again anyways.

    A heel Jericho takes it. Kennedy sucks if he doesn't have a mic in front of him.

    ^That would be an awesome idea. I would love to see Y2J turn heel and win the MITB and then take the title off the RAW champion.

    Another possibility I could see would be CM Punk winning the MITB. I would possibly have Punk drafted over to Smackdown then going after a heel champion(possibly Edge) after the Undertaker's reign is over. I wouldn't have Punk chasing the ECW title any longer because I feel that he has actually out grown the title and should be pushed harder towards one of the other World titles.

    As I mentioned in the Predictions thread, I can see a possible - but longshot - idea of Jericho winning then cashing in on Taker to end the streak. I just can't see Undertaker losing the streak to Edge, nor can I see Undertaker walking out of WM with the title. He's not a good champion and needs a good feud at this point as he hasn't been involved in anything remotely close to an angle for awhile.

    If Taker is going to lay down it will have to be to someone in the locker room he respects and out of the MITB entrants, I can only see Jericho qualifying. Of course, McMahon could decide on an easy way out and have Edge disqualified or some other nonsense.

    But back to the MITB match itself, without Hardy there really is only 2 guys I can see winning: MVP or Jericho. If Morrison or Punk wins it, I can see a potential cash-in after Chavo defends the title: If a face wins it like Kane, Morrison may come in and steal it immediately afterwards, if a heel wins it Punk does the same.

    So at least there is *some* intrigue and possibilities for the winner. Now, will they do anything creative with it or leave us all yawning?
