Money in the Bank, one of the most beloved PPV events in all of wrestling, is only a few weeks away. The ninth event under the MITB banner is set to feature an impressive list of noteworthy matches, including Ronda Rousey’s singles debut, both the male and female ladder matches, and the latest round in the Shinsuke Nakamura vs. AJ Styles rivalry.
That said, there are still some empty slots on the card that need to be filled, namely the title slot left by Brock Lesnar, who will not be defending his Universal Championship at Money in the Bank. This leaves the United States Championship, the Intercontinental Championship, and the RAW Tag Team Championships, one of which will likely be announced on the remaining episodes of Monday Night RAW or SmackDown Live in June.
