Backstage News on WWE Trying to Elevate a Wrestler; Speculation on MitB Matches

-- According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, WWE is making an effort to elevate Ruby Riott as a women's title contender. He added that whoever comes out as champion after Money in the Bank, Riott could begin to be positioned as a possible challenger based on the commentary on Raw.

-- It was also speculated on the radio show that one of Kevin Owens or Alexa Bliss could win the Money in the Bank match this weekend, but likely not both since WWE will probably want one winner from each brand. The main reason for this speculation is that both Owens and Bliss fit the mold of the type of character who would try to cash in the briefcase at an opportune time.
