Report: WWE Holding Money In The Bank In July

A little reshuffling among the events

WWE announced on Sunday night that the annual Hell in a Cell pay-per-view would take place on Sunday night, June 20. This is in stark contrast to the event's near-annual placement in the month of October through the years.

This also begged the question of what would be done with Money in the Bank, which had taken place in either May or June every year since 2014.

According to Andrew Zarian of The Mat Men Podcast, Money in the Bank is being moved back to its original month of July, and will be held Sunday night, July 18.

The apparent reasoning for moving the event to July is that WWE wants to hold the event in front of a live crowd. SummerSlam on August 22 was a near lock to be held in front of a live crowd, so it appears WWE will be returning to the road earlier. AEW intends to resume its touring on July 7, as CDC and local guidelines in the United States continue to loosen.

Money in the Bank has been an annual event since 2010. If Zarian's report is true, this year's event would be held on the 11-year anniversary of the first Money in the Bank pay-per-view.

With this reshuffling, it's not clear when Extreme Rules (a spring/early summer staple since 2009) would be held. The event has been staged in July every year since 2018.
