Previewing WWE Money in the Bank for 2021

| July 14, 2021 6:07 am PDT

Hate it or love it, Money in the Bank remains one of the biggest pay-per-view shows in pro wrestling. This year won’t be an exception and some of the brightest stars of the sport will be in action.

Since we know most matches and the event is only days away, it’s time for my WWE Money in the Bank 2021 preview. I share the key facts about the show, as well as a full list of matches.

I’ve also included my initial thoughts on all WWE Money in the Bank 2021 fights that have been announced so far.

WWE Money in the Bank 2021 Key Facts

The 12th edition of WWE Money in the Bank is scheduled for July 18. This makes it the first that will place in this month since 2013.

The show is going to take place in Fort Worth, Texas, and that’s the first time since March 2020 when a WWE pay-per-view is outside the state of Florida.

The WWE Money in the Bank 2021 is the beginning of a tour that would go through 25 American cities. The goal of the organization is to give as many fans as possible the opportunity to watch their favorite wrestlers right after the long and gruesome health crisis.

At this point, we have two ladder matches on the Money in the Bank fight card and a bunch of titles on the line, so the show is guaranteed. Here are all the confirmed fights.

  • Men’s Ladder Match for a World Championship Contract
  • Women’s Ladder Match for a Women’s Championship Contract
  • Bobby Lashley vs. Kofi Kingston for the WWE Championship
  • Rhea Ripley vs. Charlotte Flair for the WWE Raw Women’s Championship
  • Roman Reigns vs. Edge for the WWE Universal Championship
  • AJ Styles and Omos vs. The Viking Raiders (Erik and Ivar) for the WWE Raw Tag Team Championship

I assume more matches might be added, but that’s an excellent start. Let’s move on to my previews of all Money in the Bank 2021 matches.

2021 Money in the Bank Ladder Match Previews

The ladder matches that open the door to a championship are the bread and butter of the WWE Money in the Bank event. The organization often uses them to promote rising stars or boost the careers of promising wrestlers that have shown potential.

The matches include multiple contestants, so there are always plenty of twists and turns. Let’s take a look at the 2021 Money in the Bank ladder matches.

Men’s Ladder Match

We know all the contestants in the men’s match, and it will be heated on July 18! It’s a good mix of stars and unproven entrants. Here are the wrestlers that will be part of the WWE Money in the Bank 2021 men’s ladder match.

  • Ricochet
  • John Morrison
  • Riddle
  • Drew McIntyre
  • Big E
  • Kevin Owens
  • King Nakamura
  • Seth Rollins

It’s really hard to figure out who’s going to win this one, but I think Drew McIntyre might be the most likely favorite at this point.

The Scotsman was involved in a weird feud against Bobby Lashley that is finally over, and he needs a new direction. A win at Money in the Bank would open the door to many different opportunities.

The recent change in McIntyre’s behavior is another sign of new developments, but the likes of Big E or Seth Rollins make sense as potential winners too.

Women’s Ladder Match

After Natalya qualified for the women’s ladder match, we only have one spot left. The roster is exciting, and the fight should be a joy to watch. Here are the contestants that have booked a place up to this point.

  • Asuka
  • Naomi
  • Alexa Bliss
  • Nikki A.S.H.
  • Liv Morgan
  • Zelina Vega
  • Natalya

Asuka won the previous Money in the Bank edition, and I am not sure if back-to-back victories make sense. Alexa Bliss might be in a good position, but the same can be said about some of the other wrestlers like Nikki Cross.

We don’t even know the last name on the sheet, so I will abstain from any predictions at this point.

More Money in the Bank 2021 Matches

The other matches on the Money in the Bank 2021 fight card should be exciting as well. There’s a belt on the line in all of them, so the stakes are high.

Here’s what we know about each of them so far.

  • Bobby Lashley vs. Kofi Kingston – After an awkwardly long feud with Drew McIntyre, Bobby Lashley will finally defend the WWE Championship against another opponent. It’s hard to see Kofi Kingston winning here, but you never know in pro wrestling.
  • Rhea Ripley vs. Charlotte FlairFlair defeated Ripley last time around but she didn’t get the WWE Raw Women’s Championship because it was via disqualification. She has another shot at the title at WWE Money in the Bank 2021.
  • Roman Reigns vs. Edge – These two were supposed to fight for the WWE Universal Championship at WrestleMania before Daniel Bryan crashed the party. Edge demanded another match and he got it for Money in the Bank.
  • AJ Styles and Omos vs. The Viking Raiders – I’m not sure what to expect from this one, but can you bet against AJ Styles and Omos? I think the duo is poised for a long reign.

I expect more matches to be added and I will make sure to add them to the list in the build-up to the event.
