With only a day until the Money In The Bank PPV, the odds coming out of Vegas are actually quite surprising in one of the MITB ladder matches.
Seth Rollins has been expected to win the Briefcase Ladder Match since it was announced, with Dean Ambrose and Bad News Barrett being the only other legitimate options for a victor. With a planned rivalry between Ambrose and Rollins soon coming and Barrett potentially being knocked out of the match after suffering a shoulder injury on Smackdown, reports coming out of the Vegas betting odds in the last 24 hours have a very different and unlikely option in mind: Dolph Ziggler.
Ziggler is easily one of the most talented people on the entire WWE roster from top to bottom, but has been injury-prone throughout his career. Since suffering a severe concussion in May 2013 at the hands (or rather the foot) of Jack Swagger, which forced him to relinquish the World Heavyweight Championship Belt, he has not seen any real opportunities at gold again due to his injury risks.
Triple H said that while we don’t believe he likes Ziggler much, he wants him in this match, which is really high praise coming from an in-character Triple H.
Now Dolph seems to be the betting favorite to walk away with the briefcase, once again holding the opportunity to have one of the biggest moments of the year as he did when he cashed in against Alberto Del Rio on April 9, 2013. The fans have only reacted to a moment with that kind of fervor once since then, and that was when Daniel Bryan won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania XXX.
That’s what it could mean for Ziggler to walk away with the win tomorrow night.
While I question whether or not Ziggler would actually be allowed to win, I can’t wait for another possible show-stealing moment like the one on Raw that Monday night in April.
