At WWE Money in the Bank 2013, at least six All-Star Superstars will compete for an opportunity at the WWE championship briefcase. The Big Red Monster, Kane, may not make it to the pay-per-view after an attack by the debuting Wyatt Family.

According to WWE.com,

As the WWE Universe witnessed Monday night on Raw, The Wyatt Family has arrived. No one is more aware of this fact — and the repercussions of their arrival — than Kane, who was targeted as The Wyatts' first victim. Interrupting Kane’s match against Christian, the duo of Erick Rowan and Luke Harper attacked, viciously assaulting Kane with the steel ring steps.

Following the ambush, Kane is now doubtful to compete in the Money in the Bank All-Stars Ladder Match, sources told WWE.com Tuesday afternoon.

With the uncertainty about Kane’s status for Money in the Bank, who will replace him in the All-Stars match?


Winner of Ryback vs. Chris Jericho

At Money in the Bank, Ryback and Chris Jericho will go head-to-head in a meaningless match. The only reason for this match could be to give Ryback a much-needed pay-per-view win.

I had written an article at the end of June suggesting that this match be given a stipulation. One of the suggested stipulations is that the winner be put into the Money in the Bank All-Stars match.

Jericho has a history of replacing Superstars and winning. At Unforgiven 2008, Jericho replaced CM Punk in the Championship Scramble and won the World Heavyweight title.

With a spot open as a result of Kane’s injury, Jericho or Ryback could find themselves performing double duty on Sunday.


Loser of a World Title Match

Two world titles will be on the line this Sunday. John Cena defends the WWE title against Mark Henry, while Dolph Ziggler challenges Alberto Del Rio for the World Heavyweight championship.

The loser of each world title match could also have the opportunity to perform double duty at Money in the Bank. This scenario would allow WWE to move one of these Superstars to a different storyline while keeping them in the main event.

Assuming these matches occur prior to the All-Stars match, the losers of each match are options to replace Kane.


Missing in Action Superstar

Perhaps the Superstar who will replace Kane is someone WWE fans haven’t seen in a while.

Superstars who come to mind for this scenario are Big Show, Rey Mysterio or even SmackDown general manager Booker T. All of these Superstars are former world champions and would certainly fit under the category of All-Stars.

Of these three, Mysterio or Booker T would be more interesting, as it has only been since Extreme Rules since we saw Big Show in action.

Mysterio was last seen in a tag team with Sin Cara, but he could return to singles competition when healthy.

Booker T previously had a short-lived feud with Cody Rhodes until he returned to commentary and then the front office of SmackDown. With Teddy Long manning the reigns of SmackDown, perhaps Booker T wants to give the world title one more shot.
