Money In The Bank 2021 Match Card, How To Watch, And PPV Predictions
Find out everything you need to know about the upcoming WWE PPV.
WWE's Money in the Bank PPV heads to Peacock this Sunday, July 18, and there will be a live audience in attendance. Coming from the Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas, this should be a really fun event with some highly-anticipated matches.
To mark the occasion of the return of fans, WWE put out a video on Twitter showcasing the importance of the WWE Universe for the company's wrestlers. That's right, fans will be at this year's MITB PPV. This is the second time this year WWE will play in front of a live crowd, with the first being Wrestlemania. To celebrate this occasion, which slowly marks the return to normalcy, WWE has a real solid card for the PPV, with two MITB matches and four title matches so far. More bouts may be booked leading up to the event.
If you want to watch MITB, you'll need to subscribe to Peacock--or WWE Network if you're outside of the US. While Peacock has a free tier, you'll need to subscribe to Peacock Premium ($5 a month) or Peacock Premium Plus ($10 a month). The difference between the two is that Premium Plus is not ad-supported. However, both tiers of Peacock play the same stream of the PPV.
The MITB PPV main card begins at 8 PM ET / 5 PM PT, and there will be a Kickoff Show beginning one hour prior. This preshow can be watched for free on WWE's YouTube or Twitter. Typically, there will be one match on the Kickoff Show, and most of the time, it's not announced until the day of the PPV. Check out the match card below, and we'll keep updating it as more matches are added.
- Rey & Dominik Mysterio (c) vs. The Usos (Smackdown Tag Team Championship) [KICKOFF SHOW]
- AJ Styles & Omos (c) vs. The Viking Raiders (Raw Tag Team Championship)
- Rhea Ripley (c) vs. Charlotte Flair (Raw Women's Championship)
- Men's Money in the Bank
- Women's Money in the Bank
- Roman Reigns (c) vs. Edge (Universal Championship)
- Bobby Lashley (c) vs. Kofi Kingston (WWE Championship)
The biggest change for this year's Money in the Bank PPV is that both MITB matches won't be taking place at Titan Towers. Because of the 2020 pandemic, last year's event saw WWE superstars racing to the roof of Titan Towers in order to get the contract in the briefcase. It was one part wrestling match, one part comedy sketch, and one part food fight that was the breath of fresh air we needed during the pandemic era of wrestling.
This year, there are two traditional MITB matches. The men's will feature Kevin Owens, Drew McIntyre, Matt Riddle, Ricochet, John Morrison, Big E, Shinsuke Nakamura, and Seth Rollins. The women's will feature Zelina Vega, Asuka, Naomi, Alexa Bliss, Nikki A.S.H., Liv Morgan, Natalya, and Tamina.
The card may not be final as of this writing, but GameSpot's professional wrestling podcast Wrestle Buddies has a special episode for you right now going over who they think will win and lose each match at Money in the Bank. Additionally, their sophisticated AI PredictionBot 3000 returns to make some predictions of its own. You can check that out for yourself above.
Speaking of coming back, make sure to return to GameSpot on Sunday for live coverage of the event. And while you wait, why not check out recent episodes of Wrestle Buddies? Earlier this week, NXT's Johnny Gargano talked about his love of theme parks, and last week, ROH's Dalton Castle came on, and we think he might be stealing dogs.
