The 2013 edition of WWE’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view is just a few days away, but the excitement surrounding the event is already at a fever pitch.

While the show will feature superstars reaching the next level of stardom, there will be several huge names that take a devastating loss on Sunday.

All of the following wrestlers will be handed a heartbreaking defeat in Philadelphia at Money in the Bank.


Chris Jericho

There isn’t a member of the WWE Universe that wouldn’t want to see wrestling legend Chris Jericho get a few more wins, but as he has stated in an interview with Ring Rust Radio, wins and losses don’t matter to him.

That’s good news, because Jericho will lose to Ryback at Money in the Bank.

Ryback has booked much differently than he has been over the last several months—went from a monster heel that was unstoppable to a crybaby that quits mid-match and hugs Vickie Guerrero—and that is a sign of a new push to the top.

As Ryback begins his re-ascension to the main event, a huge win over Jericho would end his PPV losing streak, give him a great win over an in-ring legend and convince the fans that the whiny heel is still a monster.

While Jericho doesn’t need the win, Ryback would be ruined without it.



Kane is one of the stars that has won a Money in the Bank ladder match in the past, but there is no doubt that after Raw his focus is more on Bray Wyatt and his family than it is about Sunday’s PPV.

Add in the fact that Kane was stretchered out of the building, per WWE.com, and the WWE is making sure that the fans understand that he won’t be the superstar that pulls the briefcase down in Philadelphia.

There is a chance that Kane could just be a random victim in the Wyatt’s assault on the WWE, but there Big Red Monster will want retribution. If Kane is the centerpiece of Bray’s first feud, there is no way he wins at Money in the Bank.


The Miz

The Miz appeared to get an assist from Chris Jericho on Raw when the veteran beat intercontinental champion Curtis Axel just a few days before their title match, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth.

Axel will successfully retain the championship.

While the WWE helped The Miz look strong standing up to Axel on Monday and assisting in Jericho’s victory with his distraction, the third-generation superstar is in the process of a huge push with Paul Heyman by his side.

There is no reason for Axel to lose the title right now, and with The Miz involved in no storyline, winning the championship wouldn’t make much sense.

Expect a perfect performance from Axel.
