Joel Embiid Should be Considered an MVP Candidate
It is only January and a lot of people are talking about either James Harden or Giannis Antetokounmpo to win the MVP, but what about Joel Embiid?
The Money in the Bank is perhaps the most destructive and devastating match in the field of sports entertainment. However, with high risks, comes high reward. Whoever wins the MITB match, is rewarded with a contract which guarantees the wrestler with a Championship contract which he or she can cash it anytime to become a Champion.
This year, the Women's MITB will be extremely exciting to watch as the wrestlers are extremely talented and are great performers. For the Women's division, this is the second Money in the Bank match and the inaugural winner was Carmella. Let us look at the five favourites for this year's match.
5. Sasha Banks
Sasha Banks is entering the match as one of the favorite contenders for the contract. Banks is a former NXT Champion and also four times RAW Women's Champion. She is one of the best in ring female competitors in the WWE. Banks has taken down several wrestlers in the past and has proved to the world that she is a champion material. In the MITB match, Banks has the ability to take down the fellow competitors and walk out with the contract. Hence, she can become the winner.
4. Alexa Bliss
The former RAW Women's Champion can very well retrieve the briefcase and cash the contract to become the next Champion again on RAW. She is a former two times SmackDown Women's Champion and also a former two times RAW Women's Champion and is the only women till date to obtain this unique feat. Bliss competed in a triple threat match against Mickie James and Bayley to qualify. If she wins the MITB match and cashes the contract she will become a 3 times RAW Women's Champion and 5 times overall Champion in the WWE.
Naomi is also a strong contender to win the MITB ladder match. She is a former two times SmackDown Women's Champion and also a the winner of the 2018, inaugural WrestleMania Battle Royal. She is a highly athletic player and can fly-high above the ring to take her opponents out. Naomi is capable of delivering excellent promos and was a fantastic Champion during her reign. WWE Universe loves her and would be waiting for her to walk out with the briefcase.
2. Ember Moon
Ember is also a former NXT Champion in WWE. Recently, she made her debut on RAW and seems unstoppable. She has taken out some of the big names in the RAW female roster. Her intentions are clear, she would not rest until she lays her hand on the Championship. She will try to grab the briefcase anyhow and would love to cash it to become a future Champion in WWE. Maybe, it is just a matter of time before her dream becomes a reality.
1. Charlotte Flair
Charlotte Flair is the former SmackDown Women's Champion, which she lost to Carmella when she cashed her MITB contract upon her. Flair would love to utilize this match to grab the opportunity to become a champion again. She is a former Divas Champion, 4 times RAW Women's Champion, former SmackDown and NXT Women's Champion as well. Charlotte has the size advantage over other competitors and has an outstanding physique. She will be a real threat to all the other competitors in the match.
