As first reported by Mail Sport, WWE will return to the UK for the Money in the Bank event. The PLE will emanate from the O2 Arena in the nation’s capital on Saturday, July 1st.
The announcement has been made following the success of the Clash at the Castle Premium Live Event that took place in Cardiff, Wales back in September 2022.
A press release from WWE has stated the following regarding the upcoming British event:
STAMFORD, Conn., January 5, 2023 – WWE (NYSE: WWE) today announced that The O2 in London will host Money In The Bank on Saturday, July 1, 2023. Money In The Bank marks the first WWE Premium Live Event to be held in London in over two decades.
Money In The Bank will feature WWE’s biggest Superstars and will also bring the Money In The Bank ladder matches to the UK for the first time in history, with each winner receiving a briefcase containing a contract for a championship match at a time and place of their choosing anytime within the next year.
