It’s going to be a long night. Much like this year’s WrestleMania, this year’s Money in the Bank is going to be the most unique edition of the show ever. Your mileage may have varied on WrestleMania 36 and that is understandable, but it was certainly memorable. WWE is going to try something with Money in the Bank that might make it even harder to forget.
Last week, news broke that WWE was going to be running both the men’s Money in the Bank ladder match and the women’s Money in the Bank ladder match at the same time. Given that the match is going to take place inside WWE headquarters with the briefcases hanging above a ring on the roof, the match was always going to be nuts. Now, we have an idea of just how nuts.
According to PW Insider Elite Audio, the ladder matches will be taking place throughout the course of the pay per view, with the segments being wrapped around the live matches at the Performance Center. The clips will take place throughout the night rather than as one traditional match. The idea is to have the clips serve as a way to keep the fans entertained and engaged throughout the show.
The match won’t be like these. Check out Money in the Banks of the past:
Opinion: Maybe it’s just me being old fashioned, but back in my day you didn’t need entertainment to keep fans engaged during the night of entertainment. I know these are extraordinary circumstances, but maybe it’s time to rethink things if you need a reason to keep fans watching throughout the night. That being said, assuming the fans are watching on the WWE Network, wouldn’t WWE already have what matters most anyway: their money?
What do you think of this idea? Who will leave with the briefcases? Let us know in the comments below.
