Don't miss WWE's 2013 Money in the Bank pay-per-view (PPV). Live from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA, the show is headlined by a WWE championship match, but is known for its signature ladder match. This year there are TWO - and All-Star version for a contract to challenge for the WWE title and a Futures line-up competing for a shot at the World Heavyweight Championship (WHC).

The show features

Two of the eponymous concept matches, as seven six All-Stars (Daniel Bryan, Christian, Randy Orton, CM Punk, Sheamus and a returning Rob Van Dam) will go after a briefcase containing a contract for a WWE championship match at a time of their choosing. Seven future stars (Dean Ambrose, Wade Barrett, Antonio Cesaro, Fandango, Cody Rhodes, Damien Sandow and Jack Swagger) will try to climb a ladder to claim a version good for a WHC shot.

The co-main event(s)

While it will probably go on last and is therefore the technical main event, I doubt that many reading this are buying the PPV specifically for the WWE championship match between title holder John Cena and challenger Mark Henry. One of these strongmen will leave with the company's greatest prize.

Dolph Ziggler lost his title to Alberto Del Rio at Payback, when Del Rio got a measure of that by defeating the man who had cashed in his own Money in the Bank briefcase on him after a match with Swagger. But most feel the Mexican went too far in targeting the Show Off's head when he had just returned from a concussion.

In other action

AJ Lee defends her Divas belt against Kaitlyn in another Payback rematch, and the Intercontinental championship is on the line when Curtis Axel defends against The Miz.
