WWE is finally back to performing in front of sold-out crowds. After Friday’s SmackDown, Sunday’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view is the second full-capacity show in the company’s return to touring.
Money in the Bank was originally slated for May and later for June, but as WWE began planning its return to the road, Hell in a Cell took the June PPV slot and Money in the Bank was moved to July. That decision should prove to be a good one for WWE. The two Money in the Bank ladder matches are always crowd pleasers and having them take place in front of a full house in Fort Worth should create for an exciting atmosphere.
On top of the two eponymous ladder matches, there are five more bouts on the card, all with title implications. The universal championship match pitting Roman Reigns against Edge should be the evening’s main event.
The show will be an important building block as WWE prepares for SummerSlam next month. That show will likely end up being the company’s marquee event of the year, after WrestleMania was forced to be held in front of a reduced-capacity audience.
