Money in the Bank winner will reportedly not be guaranteed a match at WrestleMania
Rumors have been circulating about a potential change in rules for the Money in the Bank premium live event in July this year. It has now been reported that the winner of the men’s and women’s MITB matches will not be guaranteed an opportunity to main-event WrestleMania.
Earlier this month, Cody Rhodes shared a promo for for the event, which is scheduled to take place on July 2nd at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. Rhodes stated that the winner would get a chance to main-event The Show of Shows.
This led to speculation on whether WWE had changed the rules for the MITB ladder match. Previously, winners of the event’s titular bout would get a chance to cash in their MITB contract for a title opportunity of their choosing.
Recently, Steve Carrier of Ringside News reported that the winner of the MITB ladder match will not be guaranteed a match at WrestleMania:
“We were able to confirm one big point of confusion. A tenured member of the WWE creative team confirmed to us that the winner of MITB is not set for a Mania match & no one knows why that is being said. It’s been brought up in meetings. Writers & producers were confused too.”
