• WWE’s Plan For Money In The Bank Ladder Matches & Tonight’s Main Event, Braun Strowman Predicts MITB Winner
According to WrestleVotes, the Women’s Money In The Bank ladder match is set to open tonight’s Money In The Bank 2019 main show and the Men’s Money In The Bank ladder match is expected to close the show.
This means that Seth Rollins vs. AJ Styles for the Universal Championship won’t be the main event of the show.
Below is the message that Rollins sent to Styles ahead of tonight’s PPV:
15 years I’ve been waiting for this match with @AJStylesOrg. I haven’t scratched and clawed and put in the work all this time to be second best. Time to stoke the flame. #burnitdown #WWEMITB

Speaking of tonight’s PPV, Braun Strowman was interviewed by The Sun and Strowman gave the following prediction regarding who will win the Men’s Money In The Bank 2019 ladder match:
“I don’t see anybody stopping Drew McIntyre for climbing up that ladder and taking that briefcase.
He’s been a constant thorn in my side and probably one, if not, the greatest adversary I’ve had in pretty much the last eight to 10 months. The Claymore kick is not a fun thing to take to the face.
I could 100% see myself and Drew McIntyre main-eventing WrestleMania for the Universal Championship for years to come.
He’s someone that I’ve been chomping at the bit to get him to go one on one with.
I haven’t had a one on one match with him yet without any kind of interference without some backhanded bs that goes along with that group of those guys that are running around together right now.
So if opportunity for the Monster versus the Scottish Psychopath I think no matter where you put it, we’re going to sell the arena out, people are going to be in for a fight.”
