Money In The Bank Ladder Matches have resulted in numerous famous WWE moments and set up some of the most famous World Championship wins in history. The match, which first made it’s way onto WWE screens at WrestleMania 21 entitles the winner to a title match of their choice at some point during the next 12 months.
After the success of the match at WrestleMania, it became a standalone Premium Live Event in it’s own right in 2010. However, back in October it was reported that change could be on the way. Following suggestions that WWE’s Triple H-led new regime could be looking to scrap ‘themed’ PLE’s, it was noted that the Money In The bank event could be scrapped, with the two Ladder Matches moved back to WrestleMania.
New Report Shoots Down WWE Money In The Bank Rumours
However, as speculation begins to gather pace, and new report has attempted to cut through the noise. The report from Fightful Select claims that “several members of creative and higher ups” have said that while switch isn’t impossible it “hasn’t come across their desks as of yet.”
There was also speculation that SmackDown star LA Knight has already been earmarked as a potential winner. Although Fightful claim that there is no truth to this particular rumour. One source stated that while they like LA Knight WWE simply haven’t planned that far in advance. Furthermore, if they wanted him to hold the briefcase it would have been simple enough to give him the contract from 2022 men’s winner Austin Theory.
In addition, the source has “never heard him discussed” in relation to Money In The Bank.
The winners of the 2022 Ladder Matches enjoyed very different fortunes following their wins. While Liv Morgan won the SmackDown Women’s Championship the same night from Ronda Rousey, Austin Theory failed to successfully cash-in his contract against United States Champion Seth Rollins on the November 7th edition of Monday Night Raw.
