Fans of the WWE can gear up for another thrilling Pay-Per-View event, Money in the Bank, which will be held on the morning of Monday 19 July 2021 at the Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas. SuperSport will air the event live, with prime-time repeats later the same day.
This will be the 12th edition of Money in the Bank and the first to take place in the ‘Lone Star State’, with WWE returning to performing in front of live audiences. The Money in the Bank gimmick features matches in which multiple Superstars use ladders to retrieve a briefcase hanging above the ring. The briefcase contains a contract that guarantees the winner a match for a world championship of their choosing at any time within the next year, thereby giving them a ‘fast track’ to glory.
There will be both a Men’s and Women’s Money in the Bank match, while the rest of the Pay-Per-View is dedicated to championship showdowns, including Bobby Lashley v Kofi Kingston for the WWE Championship; Roman Reigns v Edge for the WWE Universal Championship; Rhea Ripley v Charlotte Flair for the Raw Women’s Championship; and Bianca Belair v Bayley in an ‘I Quit’ match for the SmackDown Women’s Championship.
“You’re talking so much about hierarchy, it’s almost like you forgot about the fact that I beat Daniel Bryan to become the WWE Champion at WrestleMania,” said Kingston in challenging Lashley. “It’s almost like you forgot about the fact that in this very ring right here, I beat you.”
Edge’s return to challenge Reigns for the Universal Championship will be one of the main highlights, with the ‘Rated R Superstar’ confident in his ability to dethrone ‘The Tribal Chief’.
“Now that I’ve been one-on-one with Roman Reigns in this ring, I know that I can beat him,” said Edge. “More importantly, Roman, you know that I can beat you. We’re the only ones that truly know, because you felt it and I felt it.”
Yet the most brutal clash will surely be between Belair and Bayley, with the ‘I Quit’ stipulation ensuring that this will be an all-out war for the SmackDown Women’s Championship.
“Bianca, you and I both know that you are not the champion you are portraying yourself to be,” said Bayley. “You have no chance of winning this match.”
