On January 5th it was announced that WWE Money In The Bank would be heading to London in 2023.
The event will take place at the O2 on July 1st. Money In The Bank has become a staple of WWE’s Premium Live Event calendar since becoming a standalone show in 2010. The announcement came as a surprise to some after there had been significant speculation that the event was set to dropped, with the match itself being moved back to WrestleMania where it began life.
There were also fans who questioned the choice of venue, given WWE would likely to be able to sell out a stadium as they did with Clash At The Castle.
Report Gives Insight Into WWE Money In The Bank
A new report from Fightful Select has now attempted to answer some of the questions around the event and it’s future. The report notes that a source said WWE see the O2 Arena as the “MSG of England” and as a venue they want to travel to as reasons behind not running a stadium. The report added the show heading to England helps push the importance of Money In The Bank being one of WWE’s biggest shows. Fightful also dismissed suggestions that the show was set to be scrapped.
At time of writing there are no plans with regard to potential winners, despite conflicting reports in recent months. The decision to hold the event in the United Kingdom was said to be a collaborative effort, after Nick Khan was credited with landing big venues and locations shows in 2022.
