And then there were sixteen. We’re less than three weeks from Money In The Bank and one of the biggest questions is who will be filling in the show’s namesake matches. Those are some important spots on the show, as the winners will be in line for a nearly guaranteed World Title feud. Monday Night Raw has already announced their half and now we have their SmackDown Live counterparts.
This week on SmackDown Live, the men’s and women’s Money In The Bank ladder match participants were announced. The men’s match will include Andrade, Finn Balor, Randy Orton and Ali while the women’s match will include Bayley, Mandy Rose, Carmella and Ember Moon. Of these eight, Carmella and Orton are both former Money In The Bank winners. Money In The Bank takes place on May 19.
And now, the red counterparts. Check out the Monday Night Raw participants being announced:
Opinion: Works for me. These matches are unique as it’s really just a bunch of people being thrown into some matches. The seven losers aren’t going to be heavily damaged by not winning, but the win means a lot to whoever gets the briefcase. Now we get a few weeks of the participants wrestling each other in matches that don’t mean much, but at least the ladder matches should be good.
Who do you think wins the briefcases? Will they win their title matches? Let us know in the comments below.
