WWE used to have “Big 4” PPVs – Royal Rumble, WrestleMania, SummerSlam & Survivor Series. These are WWE’s longest running PPV events and are dual-branded shows.

WWE wants Money In The Bank PPV to join this series and become a part of the now “Big 5” events as Money In The Bank 2018 PPV will now be a dual branded show (both Raw & SmackDown Live brands).

Not only that, Money In The Bank 2018 weekend will also feature an NXT TakeOver event.
