The X-Axis will be up… mmm, probably Monday night at this rate. Best get this post done first, since there’s not much point previewing a show after it’s happened.

Anyway. Time again for one of the more important B-shows in the WWE pay-per-view calendar. The winners of the Money in the Bank ladder matches win title shots – one for the WWE Title, one for the World Heavyweight Title – that they can cash in whenever they want. That rule has been taken absolutely literally, so the winner basically gets to hang around for months on end waiting for an ambush attempt. Once in a blue moon a well-meaning babyface actually plays fair and uses his title shot to headline a major show, but that’s not a very smart idea.
So in practice, the winners of these matches will go on, at some point in the next year, to be major players. That’s why this show matters. This is the point where they really win the title; the actual cashing-in is usually a bit of a formality.
Will I be watching this one? Um, probably not, because I don’t have time. Still, let’s see what’s on the card…
