WWE’s annual Money In The Bank pay-per-view is scheduled for May 10th and will be streaming on the WWE Network. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event was set to emanate from the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, Maryland. With the pandemic continuously growing, it was announced on the Royal Farms Arena’s Twitter account that the Money In The Bank pay-per-view will not be taking place at their venue on May 10th.

“The WWE Money In The Bank event originally scheduled for Sunday May 10 in Baltimore has been cancelled. Refunds are available at all points of purchase.”

This past Monday on RAW, the Money In The Bank pay-per-view was still being promoted for May 10th but without a location officially announced. Last year’s Money In The Bank event featured Kofi Kingston defending the WWE Championship against Kevin Owens, and Brock Lesnar winning the men’s Money In The Bank Ladder match. Lesnar went on to cash-in on Seth Rollins at Extreme Rules to win the Universal Championship. The following month at SummerSlam, Lesnar lost the title back to Rollins and in October of 2019, Lesnar defeated Kofi Kingston to become WWE Champion.
