Money. Money, Money, Money, Money! It’s all about the MON-AY!
With the “blockbuster” announcement of the vacating of the WWE World Heavyweight Championship Monday on Raw, the Money in the Bank ladder match has taken on an increased importance this year and the field of contenders for the championship is taking shape.
Already qualified for June 29th’s Money in the Bank match for the Vacant WWE World Heavyweight Championship in Boston: Alberto Del Rio, Randy Orton, United States Champion Sheamus, & Cesaro. This Friday on Smackdown Bray Wyatt & Dean Ambrose will tussle for the 5th spot in the bout leaving only two spots in the match left, if WWE’s own match graphic shown on Raw is to be believed.
While, it doesn’t take a genius to surmise that with a match of this profile John Cena won’t be far behind, but forecasting who will fill the final spot this Monday on Raw from Cleveland is a bit trickier. Let’s examine the candidates.

At long last I had the above in my grubby little hands, the first collaboration between WWE Studios and Warner Brothers Animation, Scooby-Doo! Wrestlemania Mystery. Starring the titular Scooby-Doo and the rest of the mystery solving gang, Fred, Daphne, Wilma and Shaggy, it also features voice work from WWE Superstars; Kane, The Miz, John Cena, Triple H, Brodus Clay, Santino, AJ Lee, Michael Cole and Vince McMahon. Also featured in non-speaking roles are, Big Show, Alberto Del Rio, Sin Cara, Sgt. Slaughter, Jerry Lawler and Jimmy Hart. Somewhat miffed Sarge didn’t get to say anything considering he was a major cartoon star in GI Joe: A Real American Hero. I am reviewing the Blu-Ray version which includes the full 84 minute feature, making-of featurette and a bonus episode of A Pup Named Scooby-Doo. The following review will contain a synopsis of the film, so naturally, there are spoilers ahead.

Still on a high from the close of last night’s Raw? Keep it going with a hot new edition of WWE Main Event!
The second to last segment last night featured a schmozz between all 30 participants in the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal; two of those combatants — Sheamus and the Miz — go toe-to-toe as tonight’s featured match. As is now the custom, check out WWE Main Event on WWE Network tonight and the replay tomorrow night on Ion Television.
Sheamus vs. the Miz
Wednesday night means it’s time for fights! WWE Main Event has got just what you’re looking for in the form of three big-time bouts. The card:
1. Intercontinental Champion Big E Langston vs. Curtis Axel (non-title match)
It’s really great how there’s no period after the E in Big E Langston. Apparently his full name is just E. I knew someone like that once. Also, I’m blaming Curtis Axel for the Prime Time Players splitting up. Darren Young’s blood is on your hands, Axel.
2. Alberto del Rio vs. Zack Ryder
Back-to-back TV appearances for the Long Island Iced Z! That’s good news, but the even better news is that ADR’s character has been given new depth now that his dissatisfaction with Batista has been given some context. It’s interesting how ADR/Batista is shaping up to reprise the same themes as John Cena/Rock the past two years, except Alberto is a heel playing the role of Cena and Batista is the returning superstar, but still trending as a babyface. Definitely something to keep an eye on in the coming weeks.
3. Fandango vs. The Miz
Everyone seems confused as heck by Miz’s brief tirade during Monday Night Raw. Perhaps Miz can let out some of that frustration tonight against the ever-so-nimble Fandango, who will no doubt be accompanied to the ring by the lovely Summer Rae.
Clearly the hottest topic of conversation from Twitter in regards to last night’s Raw was the Dazzler, Daniel Bryan joining the Wyatt Family. So where better to begin this edition of 140 Charaters with the man himself:
Lotta people divided on the Bryan/Wyatt situation, many infuriated that Daniel joined the family but Dolph Ziggler gets it:
Many members of the WWE Universe were simply stunned:
