WWE held it’s 2022 Money In The Bank premium live event last Saturday (July 2), and the show was a big success for the company.
After initially being slated for Allegiant Stadium, the event was eventually moved to the smaller MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, a building which WWE sold out.
Despite moving to a smaller arena, last weekend’s Money In The Bank show actually drew the second largest gate in the history of the Money In The Bank event.
Furthermore, last weekend’s show was also the most-viewed Money In The Bank event in history, as well as merchandise sales being up 95% from last year’s event, which is also the largest in event history.
The show was bookended by two of the titular ladder matches, with Liv Morgan capturing the women’s briefcase in the opening match, while Theory took home the men’s briefcase in the main event.
The show also saw the crowning of two new champions. For a full tracker of every title change in WWE for 2022 so far, click here.
