The next WWE pay-per-view is Money in the Bank on May 10 and during last night’s edition of WWE Monday Night Raw, they added a match as well as some competitors in the Money in the Bank contract matches.
During the opening promo on Raw, Drew McIntyre challenged Seth Rollins to a WWE Title match at Money in the Bank. That’s because Rollins attacked McIntyre at the end of Raw last week. Late on Raw, Rollins accepted the challenge and the match was made official for Money in the Bank. Rollins lost clean to Kevin Owens at WrestleMania earlier this month, yet Rollins is getting a WWE Title match while Owens hasn’t been on Raw for the last two weeks. The way McIntyre explained it is that Rollins has accomplished a lot in WWE, so Drew wants to test himself against him.
In addition to that, three male Raw wrestlers won Money in the Bank qualifying matches to qualify for the six-man ladder match contract match. Aleister Black beat Austin Theory, Apollo Crews beat MVP and Rey Mysterio beat Murphy.
This Friday on Smackdown, King Corbin will face Drew Gulak in a Men’s MITB Qualifying Match and Sasha Banks will face Lacey Evans in a Women’s MITB Qualifying Match.
There was also a 30-second commercial that aired during Raw that showed how WWE set up a ring on the roof of WWE’s Headquarters aka Titan Towers. There have been reports that WWE has already filmed the part of the Men’s and Women’s matches on the roof, but it’s not known if they filmed the whole matches yet. They have until May 10 anyway, so whether they taped it already or they tape it at some point in the next two weeks, they have plenty of time to do it.
