We still don’t have a location for the show - it will almost certainly emanate from the WWE Performance Center in Orlando just like everything else the company is doing during the coronavirus pandemic - but we are starting to get a look at how The ‘E will determine who gets in Money in the Bank’s titular matches on Sun., May 10.
On SmackDown last night (April 10), they announced two qualifying bouts, one each for the men’s and women’s ladder matches.

There’s no reason to think Raw won’t take a similar approach to selecting their entrants in the six-person battles for briefcases containing a shot at their brand’s top title. Like tournaments, these qualifiers are a good way to fill airtime during closed set episodes. And if each show does two qualifiers a week for three weeks, they’ll have time to hype the final line-up on their ‘go home’ before the PPV.
Let us know who you’ve got in Daniel Bryan vs. Cesaro (and how excited you are for more Daniel Bryan vs. Cesaro!) and Dana Brooke vs. Naomi. Feel free to fantasy book the other qualifiers, and give us your dream ladder match line-ups for May 10, too!
