WWE has introduced two Money In The Bank qualifying matches for tomorrow’s SmackDown show. Drew McIntyre will compete against Sheamus in a men’s qualifying match, whereas Lacey Evans will compete against Xia Li in a women’s qualifying fight. Evans’ first match in over a year will take place tomorrow. Evans recently returned from maternity leave. Her second daughter was born in October of last year. She was supposed to return to the ring on Memorial Day on Raw, but WWE instead sent her to the Coca-Cola 600 race.
As previously stated, Evans has been moved several times since her WWE return, first to SmackDown, then to Raw, and now back to SmackDown. WWE Money In The Bank 2022 will take place at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday, July 2nd. Last year’s event was held in Fort Worth, Texas, and the Men’s Money In The Bank winner was Big E, and the Women’s Money In The Bank winner was Nikki A.S.H. Money In The Bank results from last year are available here.
The following is the updated SmackDown lineup for this week:
• Match for the Intercontinental Championship
• Gunther vs. Ricochet
• Cash in the bank Qualifying Match for Men
• Sheamus vs. Drew McIntyre
• Cash in the bank Women’s Qualification Match
• Xia Li vs. Lacey Evans
• Max Dupri will disclose the first client of his organisation, Maximum Male Models.
After tickets were announced, the upcoming WWE Money In The Bank 2022 premium live event has officially sold out, with WWE hoping a crowd of around 12,000 people. The show will take place on Saturday, July 2nd at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, and tickets have already sold out, according to a source. The preorders sold 9,000 tickets, with the public sale assisting to shift the remaining WWE Universe tickets.
WWE’s Money In The Bank premium big event actually changed venue, as it was originally scheduled to take place at Allegiant Stadium. The firm had Cody Rhodes do a commercial for it in the stadium, which aired on WWE television, but that was then shifted to the MGM Grand Arena, with WWE labelling it as an intimate venue.
Fan base who had previously purchased tickets for the earlier venue were given priority when purchasing them again, as well as a fully automated refund for their first purchase. According to the source, even though the company had not sold out Allegiant Stadium, there were more tickets sold for Allegiant than for the sold-out MGM Grand. Before the event’s new location, WWE had moved 16,826 tickets.
