WWE’s next pay-per-view offering, the tenth annual Money in the Bank, is a mere 31 days out, taking place on Sunday, May 19, emanating from the XL Center in Hartford, CT.
With the Superstar Shake-Up having concluded, the company can now begin properly building to the card, with everybody (save for a certain titleholder who was not on this week’s TV) in their designated places.
According to Dave Meltzer in this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the show will be similarly formatted to last year, with men’s and women’s ladder matches that will each be inter-brand.
Among the rumored non-ladder matches for the show include Braun Strowman taking on United States champion Samoa Joe. Joe was due to switch to Raw (mirroring IC Champion Finn Balor’s crossover to SmackDown) on Monday, but missed the show due to illness.
Additionally, Drew McIntyre seems to be set up to challenge for Seth Rollins’ Universal title. Lacey Evans will likely be facing off with dual Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, though it’s not clear if the match would be for the Raw title, or for both belts.
