WWE Money in the Bank Pay-Per-View Event® is still several weeks away, but with respect paid to the concept of “card subject to change,” local advertising may have spoiled the entrants to both the men’s and women’s Money in the Bank ladder matches.
The show is set to take place on May 19 — someone give Kane a heads up — in Hartford, Connecticut. Local ads for the show, presumably with great tickets still on sale™, dropped the following names for the men’s ladder match: Drew McIntyre, Cesaro, Rey Mysterio, Ricochet, Aleister Black, Andrade, and the officially debuting Lars Sullivan. You can see the purported image in a Tweet below, best viewed by standing to the side of a television and looking over your shoulder.
The women’s match has a similar graphic, announcing Tamina, Sasha Banks, Natalya, Naomi, Bayley, Carmella, Ember Moon, and Sonya Deville.
Promotion for Monday night’s episode of Raw is advertising Alexa Bliss having a “money” exclusive that she’d announce on her in-universe talk show revealing the entrants for the men’s and women’s Money in the Bank ladder matches. So either that’ll be WWE’s effort to get out in front of the local advertising that’s already aired, or the old “plans change” chestnut with all-new participants being decided upon on Monday afternoon.
If we’re assuming these are official, and that Sasha Banks isn’t gone forever, a make-good for Banks and a make-several-good for Drew McIntyre seem like safe bets.
