A recent rumors report has surfaced that major changes might be coming to one of WWE’s popular pay-per-views. While not one of the big four, the Money in the Bank event dictates a lot of storylines moving forward as the winners of both the men’s and women’s matches walks away with a briefcase and an automotic opportunity at their respective division’s championship titles.
While not confirmed, the current belief is that the WWE Money in the Bank PPV is changing things considering the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. And, when you consider the matches require a number of people in the ring at the same time, it’s hard for WWE to pull that off right now.
Other reports suggest the event will not be taking place in Baltimore, MD on May 9th as scheduled. That means, plans for the matches and Twitter account @WrestleVotes noted the following:
There was an interview done earlier this week where Triple H confirmed WWE had given some thought to postponing WrestleMania but as that was WWE’s biggest show and they knew they could use the Performance Center to pre-record that pay-per-view, they were able to pull it off. There’s a lot more uncertainty surrounding upcoming events like Money in the Bank and WWE has already cancelled all April live events.
Triple H also noted that WWE is currently playing things by ear with this pandemic, which means that should logistics change, the decisions surrounding Money in the Bank may change too.
