Elias vs. Roman Reigns is set for the Money In The Bank pay-per-view. Following an attack during the opening segment on this week’s SmackDown Live, Elias made the challenge to Reigns. Later in the show, Reigns accepted. Elias will have Shane McMahon is his corner and it looks like WWE is doing another rehashed authority figure angle with McMahon making things difficult for Reigns.
Also, Becky Lynch will be wrestling twice on the show. Charlotte Flair became the number 1 contender by defeating Bayley this week on SmackDown Live. Flair will challenge for the SmackDown Women’s Championship at the MITB PPV.
It looks like Kofi Kingston will defend the WWE Championship against Kevin Owens but that match has yet to be officially announced.
Here is the updated card for the MITB PPV:
WWE Universal Championship
Seth Rollins (Champion) vs. AJ Styles
WWE Raw Women’s Championship
Becky Lynch (Champion) vs. Lacey Evans
