Each year, the WWE Money in the Bank pay-per-view produces new potential champions for both the men’s and women’s divisions.
It’s unknown if that will happen this year, but the official details for the WWE Money in the Bank 2020 have been revealed, so fans know when and where to check out the matches.
WWE Money in the Bank 2020 PPV details released
The Money in the Bank ladder match typically features a contract inside a briefcase hanging over the ring. Generally, five or more competitors battle it out with multiple ladders available around the ring.
The first competitor to get up a ladder in the ring and pull down the briefcase wins.
They not only get their name in the history books but also get to carry a briefcase that contains a contract for a championship match inside.
Based on previous years, the one holding that briefcase has up to one year to “cash in” on the champion for a title match. They can do that at any time, any place they choose.
Last year, WWE’s annual pay-per-view featuring the men’s and women’s Money in the Bank ladder matches was held at the XL Center in Hartford, Connecticut.
For WWE’s Money in the Bank 2020 PPV, it remains in the same general region of the U.S. as Baltimore, Maryland, will feature the event. The Royal Farms Arena will serve as the host venue.
It’s the first time there’s been a pay-per-view there since 2017’s Extreme Rules.
The official date for the MITB event is May 10, 2020, as revealed by a Facebook event post for Royal Farms Arena.
According to Wrestling Inc, the 2020 Money in the Bank tickets go on sale for the general public on Friday, March 13, at 10 a.m. Eastern Time.
There’s also a Citi Card pre-sale at 10 a.m. ET on March 10 as well as a Ticketmaster pre-sale on Wednesday, March 11, at 10 a.m. ET.
Visit the Ticketmaster website for more details about ordering or pre-ordering tickets.
Money in the Bank 2020 matches
As of right now, it’s anyone’s guess who will be featured in the MITB ladder matches. That will depend a lot on the outcomes of the upcoming matches at Elimination Chamber and WrestleMania 36.
However, one has to think some of the usual participants will be featured. Some of the competitors who’ve appeared in more than a few of the matches over the years are Randy Orton, Kofi Kingston, and Sheamus.
Orton and Sheamus have each won the match before.
At the 2019 PPV in Hartford, Brock Lesnar surprised everyone by coming out to win the match despite never being an official participant announced beforehand.
Other competitors included Ricochet, Drew McIntyre, Baron Corbin, Ali, Finn Balor, Andrade, and Randy Orton.
For the women’s match, it was the current WWE SmackDown Champion Bayley, who won the MITB briefcase.
She was in a field that also included Mandy Rose, Natalya, Dana Brooke, Naomi, Nikki Cross, Ember Moon, and Carmella.
Bayley went on to cash in the same night and win the SmackDown Women’s title from Charlotte Flair, who had just defeated Becky Lynch for it.
All eyes will be on the upcoming pay-per-view, but especially WrestleMania, as it takes place the month before MITB.
At the upcoming WrestleMania 36 PPV, Drew McIntyre challenges Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship while Roman Reigns challenges Goldberg for the WWE Universal Championship.
Additionally, Bayley is expected to defend her title against Naomi while Becky Lynch is expected to defend the RAW Women’s Championship against Shayna Baszler.
Based on those matches, it wouldn’t be too surprising if any of the losing parties in the matches get into the upcoming MITB ladder matches or championship rematches.
It also wouldn’t be a stretch if WWE brought in some NXT competitors as part of the event.
WWE’s Elimination Chamber takes place on Sunday, March 8, while WrestleMania 36 is on Sunday, April 5. WWE Money in the Bank 2020 takes place on Sunday, May 10.
