WWE Money in the Bank 2018 match card, rumors

The next pay-per-view (PPV) on the WWE schedule is the Money in the Bank show set to take place on Sun., June 17, 2018, at the Allstate Arena in just outside of Chicago, Illinois. While the company has moved to regular co-branded events now, they also treat this show as a “Big 5” PPV, so it should be even more eventful.

We're just two weeks away from the show, but the card looks all but full:

  • Women’s Money in the Bank ladder match

The field is set: Ember Moon, Alexa Bliss, Natalya, and Sasha Banks from the Raw side and Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Lana, and Naomi from the SmackDown side. Early odds indicate the winner will come from the red brand.

  • Men’s Money in the Bank ladder match

The field is set: Braun Strowman, Bobby Roode, Finn Balor, and Kevin Owens from the Raw side and The Miz, Rusev, Samoa Joe, and a member of The New Day from the SmackDown side. We still don’t know who the New Day member will be and may not find out until showtime. Early odds indicate the winner will come from the blue brand.

  • AJ Styles (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura in a Last Man Standing match (WWE Championship)

They couldn’t settle up in a No Disqualification match, with both unable to answer a 10 count follow low blows at Backlash. Naturally, then, they’ll be wrestling a Last Man Standing match here. It’s probably the blow off to this feud.

  • Ronda Rousey vs. Nia Jax (Raw Women’s Championship)

It started slow, with an angle at the NBC Upfronts to kick it off, but they’ve since heated it up with a Stephanie McMahon promo and a Nia Jax turn to help get Rousey over. She’s rapidly improved as a pro wrestling performer as far as all the non-wrestling stuff goes. It’s been good, but doubts about potential match quality remain.

  • Carmella (c) vs. Asuka (SmackDown Women’s Championship)

This was booked for no particular reason other than “Asuka isn’t in the Money in the Bank ladder match but is still a top star in the division who needs something to do.” We’ll see if that something is putting Carmella over.

  • Roman Reigns vs. Jinder Mahal

Shortly after his jump to Raw, Mahal did what any young prisoner may do and went after the biggest dog in the yard. Now, he’s got a match at one of the bigger PPVs on the WWE schedule.

  • Bludgeon Brothers (c) vs. Gallows & Anderson (SmackDown Tag Team Championship)

The Good Brothers defeated The Usos to become top contenders, earning this match. They’ve got two weeks to build a story around it.

  • Seth Rollins (c) vs. Elias (Intercontinental championship)

Rollins interrupted a musical performance and took a guitar shot to the back for it. There was only one way to go with this from there.

  • Bobby Lashley vs. Sami Zayn

Sami tried to “expose” Bobby but it went really poorly in one of the worst Raw segments in a while. Still, it set up a match between the two.

  • Daniel Bryan vs. Big Cass

These two aren’t done with each other yet. Bryan beat Cass clean at Backlash, then took out his knee days later on SmackDown. Cass is out for revenge.

That’s 10 matches, which is a lot, even with adding another hour to the program. They could be adding another, with a tag team battle royal booked for Raw this week to determine the top contender to Bray Wyatt and Woken Matt Hardy’s titles. With how much time the ladder matches need, we should expect some of these bouts to end quickly.
