Money in the Bank 2023 Takes Place at the O2 Arena in London, England

WWE brings the annual Money in the Bank pay-per-view to England for the first time since 2003 with Saturday’s event. Winners of the men’s and women’s ladder matches will earn contracts that allow them to challenge for any title at a time of their choosing.

Iyo Sky and LA Knight won their respective matches to set up future world title opportunities, while the main event saw The Usos reunite to defeat Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa in a Bloodline Civil War match. CBS Sports was live streaming the entire show.

The Venue

The 14th edition of WWE’s annual Money in the Bank pay-per-view event will take place on Saturday, July 1. This year, the event is taking place at the o2 arena in London, England. This will be the first time that Money in the Bank takes place outside of the United States, and it will also be the first major WWE live event held in London since 2002’s Insurrextion.

The main events of the show are the men’s and women’s Money in the Bank ladder matches, where winners will earn a briefcase that can be cashed in for a world championship match at any time over the course of the next year. Past winners of these matches have included Liv Morgan, Austin Theory, and Ronda Rousey.

This year’s event is expected to be the biggest and most spectacular yet, and it will also feature a number of other exciting matches. WWE has announced that Matt Riddle will attempt to end GUNTHER’S year-long Intercontinental Championship reign, and former UFC star Ronda Rousey will return for a match with Shayna Baszler. The event will also see Cody Rhodes face off against Dominik Mysterio in their first singles encounter.

Aside from the marquee matches, there are a few other interesting storylines to watch out for. For example, Gypsy King Tyson Fury is set to make a cameo at the event, and there’s also a possibility that WWE will air a Raw-exclusive episode of SmackDown on the eve of MONEY IN THE BANK.

Fans can look forward to an action-packed night at the o2 arena, which can accommodate up to 20,000 fans. The action will get underway at 8 pm BST, which is 5 pm ET. Fans can follow the event by tuning into the official WWE streaming service, Peacock, which will broadcast the show live from the o2 arena. They can also find out more about the event by visiting its dedicated webpage. This page includes the full match card, ticket information, and more. WWE will be streaming this event on both the UK and US versions of the WWE Network.

The Matches

The prestigious WWE Money in the Bank pay-per-view is making history in 2023, with its first appearance outside of the United States at the O2 Arena in London. The event saw a star-studded lineup of matches, including the men’s and women’s Money in the Bank ladder match — with winners earning briefcases that can be cashed in for a title shot at any time. It’s a staple of the WWE calendar and has resulted in some of the most memorable moments in wrestling history.

The men’s ladder match featured a stacked roster, including Ricochet, Shinsuke Nakamura, LA Knight, Santos Escobar, Butch and Damian Priest. The crowd favored LA Knight, who climbed to the top of the ring to chant “I want a title shot!” It looked like he would cash in his briefcase, but his attempt to take down the rest of the field backfired and he was knocked off the ladder by Logan Paul. It was then a matter of the champions taking care of each other, as Priest distracted Rollins, giving him the opportunity to hit a curb stomp and retain his title.

In the women’s match, Iyo Sky earned the final spot on the ladder by handcuffing Becky Lynch and Bayley together at the base of the ring. She had a great advantage over the other five wrestlers, but it was all down to her skill as she took out each of them in quick succession. It was a smart finish that left the crowd erupting in applause, and it set the stage for a big main event matchup between The Judgment Day members.

In the main event, Cody Rhodes challenged Dominik Mysterio to a singles match, and The New Day accepted. This was a big booking for The New Day, as it showed that they can compete with the best in the business. It was a well-wrestled match, with Mysterio proving why he’s one of the most underrated performers in WWE.

The Appearances

WWE brought a pay-per-view to England for the first time in 20 years with Saturday’s MONEY IN THE BANK event. The event’s stacked card saw some incredible matches, including the men’s Money in the Bank ladder match, which saw Roman Reigns lose to the Usos after Solo Sikoa climbed to the top of the ropes and hit Reigns with several superkicks before Jey Uso hit him with a frogsplash to pin him. The Usos’ win also marked the first time Reigns had been pinned since December 2019. Damian Priest and Iyo Sky won their respective men’s and women’s Money in the Bank ladder matches. The winner of each gets a contract for a title match at a future date of their choosing, which has become one of the main storytelling devices for WWE’s summer events.

The main non-ladder matches at MONEY IN THE BANK included Seth Rollins defeating Finn Balor in a tag team match, as well as Raquel Rodriguez and Liv Morgan winning the women’s tag team championship from Ronda Rousey and Shayna Baszler. However, the main talking point of the night was the appearance of Tyson Fury. The ‘Gypsy King’ made his debut at MONEY IN THE BANK, knocking out Austin Theory and then pinning Drew McIntyre to close the show in front of an electrifying crowd. Fury’s appearance came after he and Braun Strowman went toe-to-toe at WrestleMania earlier this year.

There were some rumors about a surprise appearance by John Cena, but the 16-time World Champion did not appear at this event. He has been spotted in the UK, but has not officially announced his return to wrestling.

There is also speculation that English YouTuber KSI may make his return to the WWE ring at MONEY IN THE BANK 2023. The pair has a long history of rivalry and KSI is a big fan of WWE.

The Final Words

WWE’s tradition of delivering a can’t-miss Premium Live Event in major international cities continues tonight with Money in the Bank, which emanates from the O2 Arena in London. The show will feature two traditional ladder matches – one for the men and one for the women. The briefcase holders’ names will be announced over the next few weeks via qualifying matches on RAW and SmackDown.

Ladder matches are a popular match type that can add an extra level of drama to a regular WWE main event, especially when the stakes are higher. Last year, Liv Morgan and Austin Theory both successfully snatched their Money in the Bank contracts and earned themselves a title opportunity. It’s a great way to keep the WWE Universe on pins and needles, as well as push more storylines forward.

But the rumors suggest that we won’t see Cody Rhodes and Brock Lesnar go head-to-head at MONEY IN THE BANK 2023, as the match would likely set up another rubber match at SummerSlam. Instead, WWE is reportedly planning for Cody to take on Dominik Mysterio in the main event. The match could be a mixed tag team bout or a standard singles match, depending on how WWE’s writers decide to plot out this storyline. Either way, the O2 will be rocking with some of the loudest and most excited fans in recent memory.
