Raw General Manager Kurt Angle is wasting little time determining which Raw Superstars will compete in the Men’s and Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Matches next month, having confirmed two Triple Threat Qualifying Matches for tonight’s Raw.
Roman Reigns will take on Finn Balor and Sami Zayn for the right to enter the Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match, while Sasha Banks, Ember Moon, and Ruby Riott will collide to be the first entrant confirmed for the Women’s bout.
Reigns and Riott are both coming off wins at Backlash. Reigns defeated Samoa Joe in the main event, while Riott beat Bayley on the pre-show. The story of Riott vs. Bayley was that Banks didn’t accompany Bayley to the ring to help even the odds against The Riott Squad after Bayley watched from backstage and didn’t help Banks against the group last Monday.
On Sunday’s Backlash post-show, it was revealed that The Miz would also be in a Qualifying Match on this week’s SmackDown LIVE.
Money in the Bank takes place on June 17 at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois.
Here are Mike Rome and Cathy Kelley making the announcement.
