This year’s WWE Money in the Bank is gearing up to be one of the most unforgettable events of the year, but what is the main event?
With a bitter World Heavyweight Championship bout and a ‘Bloodline Civil War’ already slated, there is no shortage of intense rivalries to look forward to.
Yet, amidst all the raw emotion and fierce competition, it’s the match between Cody Rhodes and Dominik Mysterio that’s reportedly taking centre stage as the main event at The O2 Arena in London, England’‹, according to PWInsider.
A Clash Between a Veteran and a Rising Star
Over the past weeks, Mysterio has been gaining the upper hand against ‘The American Nightmare,’ Cody Rhodes.
His strategy has involved a combination of cheap shots and swift evasions from Rhodes’ verbal jabs. But as the match draws nearer, Mysterio may find fewer places to hide.
That said, Mysterio is expected to have support by his side, so a thrilling showdown is expected when these two competitors finally lock horns inside the squared circle’‹.

In the realm of singles matches, Mysterio’s record is nothing short of impressive. He hasn’t lost a televised one-on-one contest since WrestleMania 39 when his father, WWE Hall of Famer Rey Mysterio, emerged victorious.
Rhodes, on the other hand, has had a more mixed record since his return to WWE at WrestleMania 38. He has only lost two singles matches: one to Roman Reigns in the main event of WrestleMania 39, and another to Brock Lesnar at Night of Champions in May’‹.
The Spectre of Brock Lesnar’s Return
Another intriguing angle to this match is the possibility of a return from Brock Lesnar. He’s been off the WWE radar since he defeated Rhodes at Night of Champions.
While ‘The Beast Incarnate’ isn’t officially scheduled to appear at the Money in the Bank event, rumours have been swirling that he might make a surprise appearance.
If these rumours turn out to be true, it will likely be to the detriment of Rhodes, setting the stage for a third and final showdown between Lesnar and Rhodes at SummerSlam’‹.
