Held annually since July 2010, the WWE Money in the Bank premium live event has become one of the ‘Big 5’ WWE cards of the calendar year, joining the Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, SummerSlam, and Survivor Series. Moving forward, though, it appears the event is about to reset.
In a new interview with GiveMeSport’s Louis Dangoor, WrestleVotes addressed the future of the event itself under the regime of Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque. It has previously been discussed that Levesque is looking to cut back on the amount of gimmick premium live events, with Money in the Bank seemingly one for the chopping board:
“Putting Money in the Bank on WrestleMania, one night women’s and one night men’s is something I’ve heard. I know since Hunter has taken over, the idea of one night women and one night men is alive.”
The most recent Money in the Bank event took place on July 2, and saw Austin Theory and Liv Morgan walk away with the briefcases.
Money In The Bank Was A WrestleMania Tradition
Prior to becoming its own event in the summer of 2010, the Money in the Bank match was traditionally held on WrestleMania. Beginning with WrestleMania 21 in 2005, the match featured across six different WrestleManias until 2010’s ‘Mania XXVI.
These matches featured Edge, Rob Van Dam, Mr Kennedy, CM Punk twice, and Jack Swagger walking away as Mr Money in the Bank and, bar Kennedy who dropped the briefcase to Edge, all became WWE or World Heavyweight Champion. Edge took the longest to cash-in at nine months, while Swagger did so in just a few days.
WrestleMania 39 is currently scheduled for April 1 and 2 from Los Angeles, California’s SoFi Stadium, marking the fourth annual two-night ‘Mania. No matches are thus far official, with only Roman Reigns vs. The Rock being heavily reported as taking place.
