WWE will hold its second pay-per-view without fans on Sunday when Money in the Bank hits the airwaves.
After holding last month’s WrestleMania in an empty WWE Performance Center in Orlando, the company is moving forward with its previously scheduled pay-per-view events despite the global pandemic. The state of Florida gave WWE the go-ahead to resume taping fresh TV content by including pro wrestling under its list of essential businesses, and WWE, after initially airing some broadcasts live, has been taping shows in advance at the PC.
Money in the Bank is an annual event for WWE, named after the briefcase to be won in a ladder match that grants you a title opportunity whenever you want to cash it in. This year, the men’s and women’s ladder matches were pre-taped at WWE’s Stamford, Conn., headquarters, known as Titan Towers. While the briefcase will be suspended above a ring that sits on the roof of the office building, the match will begin on the building’s ground floor and the wrestlers will work their way up to the roof.
WWE has not announced where the other matches on the card will take place, but it seems logical that they would be filmed at the Performance Center.
