WWE Money In The Bank Preview: Match Card, Start Time, Predictions, How To Watch The 2020 PPV

It’s time for WWE’s PPV Money in the Bank, and if you want to know more, check out GameSpot’s live results for WWE’s Money in the Bank PPV. As for the match card, after the May 8 episode of WWE Smackdown, two more matches for were booked for the PPV; however, neither of them title matches. Cesaro will face Jeff Hardy on the Kickoff and on the main card, MVP will face R-Truth. That’s only eight matches in total for the entire PPV evening.

Today, WWE’s next PPV, Money in the Bank, comes to the WWE Network. Men and women wrestlers will have to climb the corporate ladder–very literally–in order to get the MITB contract for a WWE Championship match. For the 2020 event, it will be taking place at the Performance Center in Florida and at WWE Headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut–for the actual MITB ladder matches. Much like Wrestlemania 36, there will be no live audience.

This year, the classic Money in the Bank ladder match is being changed up, as competitors won’t be climbing a ladder in order to get the MITB contract. They’ll be trying to get to the roof of WWE Headquarters, also known as Titan Towers. Depending on where you live in the world, the PPV could be happening in the early evening, in the middle of the night, or bright and early in the morning.

Money in the Bank main card start time:

  • 4 PM PT
  • 6 PM CT
  • 7 PM ET
  • 12 AM BST (May 11)
  • 9 AM AEST (May 11)

Keep in mind that there will be a Kickoff Show starting one hour prior to the main card. You can watch the preshow for free on WWE.com, WWE Network, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and Twitch.

How to watch Money in the Bank:

In order to watch the upcoming PPV, you’ll need one of two things. You can either purchase it through your cable or satellite provider or subscribe to the WWE Network streaming service. Those who are new to the service get one month for free, so you could watch MITB for the low cost of $0. Normally, the WWE Network costs $10 a month.

In addition to watching live-streamed events, the WWE Network has past episodes of Raw, Smackdown, NXT, and a vault including PPVs from years past along with episodes of programming from WWE, WCW, ECW, and more. There is also original programming like the upcoming docuseries about The Undertaker.

Money in the Bank match card:

As of this writing, there are eight matches booked this far. However, two of these matches will be happening at the same exact time. Both the men’s and women’s MITB matches will take place at Titan Towers. Everyone involved will have to make it to the roof in order to get the contract. It’s going to be utter chaos and probably a bit too much to follow. Fans will be getting something new and unique though.

As for the rest of the card, Tamina will finally get a shot at the Smackdown Women’s Championship, but she’ll have to go through Bayley to get it. Tamina hasn’t had a solo championship match in years–ignoring the fact she was very, very briefly the 24/7 Champion last year. Considering she was a part of the Wrestlemania 36 five-way Smackdown Championship match, this seems like we’re getting a decent rivalry between her and Bayley.

  • Jeff Hardy vs. Cesaro (KICKOFF SHOW)
  • R-Truth vs. MVP
  • New Day (c) vs. Miz & Morrison vs. Lucha House Party vs. Forgotten Sons (Smackdown Tag Team Championship)
  • Bayley (c) vs. Tamina (Smackdown Women’s Championship)
  • Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Seth Rollins (WWE Championship)
  • Braun Strowman (c) vs. Bray Wyatt (Universal Championship)
  • Women’s Money in the Bank match (Carmella, Nia Jax, Shayna Baszler, Dana Brooke, Asuka, and Lacey Evans)
  • Men’s Money in the Bank match (Otis, Aleister Black, Daniel Bryan, AJ Styles, Rey Mysterio, and King Corbin)

Predictions:

Money in the Bank matches:

Both of these matches are happening simultaneously. This is not a great idea, but it is what it is. The whole idea is to get to the top of the building in order to get the contract. This won’t be a wrestling match, so you have to look at who is on the rise at WWE and which person winning makes the most sense. On the women’s side, I could see Asuka back in the main event spotlight, but it seems like this match was crafted for Baszler to win, if only to continue the rivalry with Becky Lynch. On the men’s side, I have no strong opinions on this, but it sure would be nice to see Daniel Bryan come out on top.

Winners: Shayna Baszler and Daniel Bryan

Braun Strowman (c) vs. Bray Wyatt (Universal Championship)

Finally, Bray Wyatt is back on track to get the Universal Championship, which was handed off to Goldberg for a few months for no real reason at all. Now, Wyatt–not The Fiend–will face Strowman. It will be great to see the Monster Among Men face his former mentor in the ring, and while many people may think the title will land back on Wyatt, that won’t be the case. Strowman will retain; however, it will lead to another match, down the road, where The Fiend will face Strowman and reclaim his title.

Winner: Braun Strowman
