‘Money In The Bank’ has now become one of WWE’s ‘big five’ pay-per-views alongside Royal Rumble, SummerSlam, Survivor Series and obviously WrestleMania. Since 2014, WWE have held Money In The Bank in June, but this year they have opted to move it forward to May, with it being the first pay-per-view after WrestleMania.
Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio is speculating that WWE might have made the decision to move Money In The Bank forward to May to distract from All Elite Wrestling’s ‘Double or Nothing’ show which is set to air from Las Vegas six days after WWE’s show.
“They moved Money In The Bank up this year though for that reason — is it for that reason? To — you know, who knows? I think it probably was you know Money In The Bank is a stronger show so why would you do that change. Because coming right out of WrestleMania they usually go in there with that one month where they’re like, ‘Well we don’t wanna do a big pay-per-view so June’s a better time for that, but yeah they’re gonna go with Money In The Bank in May.”
The show on May, 25 is set to be headlined by former WWE star Chris Jericho as he takes on Kenny Omega.
