As they are wont to do, WWE broke some news on The Bump this morning (Weds., April 29).
On the Mon., May 4 edition Raw, we’ll learn who replaces the injured Apollo Crews in the men’s Money in the Bank ladder match. It’ll be the winner of a “Last Chance Gauntlet Match”.

No word yet on who the participants in this gauntlet match will be. Does “Last Chance” imply that the wrestlers who lost qualifying matches to Crews, Aleister Black, and Rey Mysterio will take part? That would mean Austin Theory, Murphy, and MVP.
Three men do not a gauntlet make, however. Will any of our leading suspects make the cut? Andrade and Jinder Mahal would seem to be viable options for the Last Chance Gauntlet. Triple H and Jeff Hardy? Not so much...
The next episode of Raw, and the Money in the Bank “Climb the Corporate” ladder matches, have already been filmed - the former last Monday at the Performance Center in Orlando, the latter on April 14 at company headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut. So lots of somebodies know who’s in the matches we’ll see on May 4 and 10.
When will they tell us? Will word leak out before they do?
