WWE to bring historic Money in the Bank show to the UK for the first time ever

Wrestling giants WWE are bringing one of its biggest shows to the UK.

London's O2 Arena will play host to the annual Money In The Bank premium live event, the first huge show WWE has held in London for more than 20 years.

Hot off the success of the Cardiff-based stadium show Clash at the Castle, WWE has now decided to bring the Money in the Bank show to the UK for the first time in its history.

It is set to feature WWE’s biggest Superstars and will also bring the Money In The Bank ladder match with it, with each winner receiving a briefcase containing a contract for a championship match at a time and place of their choosing anytime within the next year.

The show has been known to be one of the company's most chaotic events of the year, with ladders flying everywhere – while top stars compete for a year-round title opportunity.

Previous winners include John Cena, Liv Morgan, Brock Lesnar and The Miz.

“The O2 is one of the world’s premier venues and the perfect home for Money In The Bank. We are excited to bring one of our ‘Big five’ events to the UK and look forward to welcoming the WWE Universe to London on July 1,” said Dan Ventrelle, EVP, Talent at WWE.
