Speculation on Daniel Bryan vs. Big Cass Match; Other MitB Matches Likely to be Kept Short

-- On the latest Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez speculated on a finish for the upcoming Daniel Bryan vs. Big Cass match at Money in the Bank match. The suggested scenario would see The Miz interfere and cost Bryan the match in order to set up a match between the two at SummerSlam, which is one of the programs that WWE was planning since Bryan was cleared to return to the ring.

-- The length of the Money in the Bank PPV was also discussed as the event has two more matches than Backlash, but the event is also technically being planned to be an hour longer since wrestlers/matches from both brands are being featured. Alvarez speculated that at least two matches - Nia Jax vs. Ronda Rousey and The Bludgeon Brothers vs. Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows would be kept relatively short.

-- Other matches on the card on paper could also be kept short - such as Asuka vs. Carmella and Bobby Lashley vs. Sami Zayn - in order to give enough time for the two big ladder matches as well as the Last Man Standing match between Shinsuke Nakamura and AJ Styles.
