Kane added to Money in the Bank WWE title ladder match

Last night's episode of Monday Night Raw featured a main event of every participant in the Money in the Bank WWE championship ladder match competing in a tag match as a preview of this weekend's match in Boston at the pay-per-view (PPV) of the same name.

After, Kane came out and started wrecking shop. In response to this, Triple H walked out and, for some reason, added Kane to the match to bring the total number of participants to eight. has it:

This Sunday's WWE World Heavyweight Championship Ladder Match has added a demonic new twist with its newest entrant: Kane. WWE COO Triple H announced the devilish addition on the June 23 edition of Raw. Kane, often considered The Authority's unofficial "muscle," joins previously announced competitors Roman Reigns, John Cena, Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt, United States Champion Sheamus, Cesaro and Alberto Del Rio in the historic Ladder Match, which will be fought for the vacant WWE World Heavyweight Title. While The Viper and The Devil's Favorite Demon were placed into the contest by The Authority, the remaining six Superstars all won qualifying matches to earn their coveted spots.

This is an odd addition if only because there was no real story leading in to it. Is he there to assist Randy Orton? Is he out for himself and hoping to win the WWE title?

Here's the updated Money in the Bank match card and line-up:

- Money in the Bank ladder match (WWE championship)
- Money in the Bank ladder match (Briefcase)
- The Usos vs. The Wyatt Family (Tag team championships)
- Paige vs. Naomi (Divas championship)
