Add another one to the list. We’re coming up on Money In The Bank, which will of course be headlined by the two World Title matches and the two Money In The Bank ladder matches. That covers a lot of the card but it isn’t enough to cover the entire thing. As a bonus, WWE is going to need to add in a few more matches to the card. One of those was taken care of this week.
Here’s how it went down. Check out the announcement of the new pay per view title match:
WWE has released a new video on its YouTube channel with 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick announcing that #1 contender Ariya Daivari will receive his title shot at Cruiserweight Champion Tony Nese at Money In The Bank. Daivari became #1 contender last month when he won a fatal four way match on the April 16 episode of 205 Live. This will be Nese’s second title defense.
Opinion: You had to know that this was coming, but the bigger question is whether or not the match will take place on the Kickoff Show or the main card. The match might not be the most thrilling showdown in the world but these guys have worked hard and at some point deserve something better than just the Kickoff Show. The title matches have been entertaining and hopefully they get a better chance to showcase themselves at some point.
Who should win the title match? Will it be on the Kickoff Show? Let us know in the comments below.
