There were two more matches added to the WWE Money in the Bank lineup this week.
On Monday during Raw, it was announced that Samoa Joe will defend the US Title against Rey Mysterio. Joe beat Mysterio easily at WrestleMania, but Mysterio beat Joe on Raw two weeks ago in a non-title match, so that’s why Mysterio gets another shot at the US Title.
On Tuesday afternoon, WWE also announced that Cruiserweight Champion Tony Nese will defend his title against Ariya Daivari. Here’s 205 Live General Manager Drake Maverick making that announcement.
If I had to guess, I would expect that Cruiserweight Championship match to be on the Kickoff Show like they usually are on WWE PPVs.
Here’s the lineup for Money in the Bank on May 19 in Hartford, CT.
Universal Championship: Seth Rollins (c) vs. AJ Styles
WWE Championship: Kofi Kingston (c) vs. Kevin Owens
Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match: Baron Corbin, Braun Strowman, Drew McIntyre, Ricochet, Ali, Randy Orton, Andrade, Finn Balor
Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match: Alexa Bliss, Natalya, Naomi, Dana Brooke, Bayley, Mandy Rose, Ember Moon, Carmella
Smackdown Women’s Championship: Becky Lynch (c) vs. Charlotte Flair
Roman Reigns vs. Elias
Raw Women’s Championship: Becky Lynch (c) vs. Lacey Evans
Steel Cage Match: Shane McMahon vs. The Miz
United States Championship: Samoa Joe (c) vs. Rey Mysterio
Cruiserweight Championship: Tony Nese (c) vs. Ariya Daivari
The three titles that are currently not on the show are the Smackdown Tag Team Championships (held by Daniel Bryan and Rowan), the Raw Tag Team Championships (held by Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins) and the Women’s Tag Team Titles (held by the IIconics).
The Intercontinental Title held by Finn Balor won’t be defended at Money in the Bank because he’s part of the Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match.
