A new update has provided insight into what WWE might have planned for Money in the Bank next year.
The Money in the Bank concept started in 2005 at WrestleMania 21. The idea was that there would be a ladder match with multiple wrestlers competing by climbing up a ladder and retrieving a briefcase that contained a contract leading to a title shot any time the winner chooses.
Since 2010, WWE made Money in the Bank a pay-per-view (now known as a Premium Live Event) of its own usually taking in the months of May, June or July.
Looking ahead to 2023, there was a report recently from Wrestlevotes noting that WWE was considering a change to Money in the Bank by doing the Men’s Money in the Bank match on one night of WrestleMania and the Women’s Money in the Bank match taking place on the other night since there are two nights of WrestleMania.
To update the story, Fightful Select reported that they asked several members of the WWE creative team as well as some higher-ups in the company who said that while a MITB move to WrestleMania is possible, it hasn’t come across their desks yet. In other words, it’s just a rumor for now.
The report from Fightful went on to mention another rumor about LA Knight possibly winning Money in the Bank. A source within WWE shot that down quickly noting that it far too early to know who might win that match: “I like LA Knight, but we don’t even have definitive plans across the board for months down the line, much less next year’s Money in the Bank.”
As the source continued, they noted that while it could happen, it apparently hasn’t been discussed likely due to the fact that Money in the Bank is still far away on the timeline of big events coming up.
