Money in the CM Bank

Tonight is CM Punk's last night (for the time being) in the WWE. It is also the Money in the Bank PPV.

First of all, I don't like them taking a great WrestleMania match and turning it into a PPV in which two guys will end up with a briefcase by the end of the night.

Now that I've made that clear, I believe the idea of the PPV works perfectly with the main storyline going into it.

CM Punk threatens to take the belt with him if he wins. John Cena is fired if this happens. This is so big, even CM Punk's rants have been on ESPN.

I believe CM Punk will win in his hometown tonight. But, he won't be taking the belt home with him...

See, this is where PPV works. Whoever wins the Money in the Bank will cash it in during Punk's celebration.

We are saved from two MITB winner storylines (one is pretty entertaining, but two at once would be too much). Cena may even get to save his job since the belt never leaves the company.

Will it work? Yes. The crowd will be in shock at Cena's lost (many will be happy, then shocked when they realize what it means for the belt), then someone's music will play to a huge reaction because they won't expect it (even though I just predicted it...).

And, then, we will have storyline of a champion who must prove himself to the locker room, and, possibly, even a former champion (Cena) who must prove himself to Vince McMahon.
