WWE's next pay-per-view is Money in the Bank, and last night on Monday Night Raw, the company already started revealing participants via qualification matches for one of the marquee bouts of the event, the Monday in the Bank contract ladder match.
Five participants out of a possible seven qualified for the match last night on Raw for a chance to win the briefcase that will allow them to have a WWE World Heavyweight Championship match, anytime, anywhere.
This could be against either Roman Reigns or Seth Rollins for the time being, depending on the outcome of their match for the title on the same night.

Sami Zayn, Cesaro, Chris Jericho, Dean Ambrose and Kevin Owens all gained a spot in the clash after defeating Sheamus, The Miz, Apollo Crews, Dolph Ziggler and AJ Styles, respectively. This leaves two remaining spots in the match yet to be filled.
Several superstars could fill these remaining spots, and the WWE is likely to announce who the last two superstars will be over the next couple of weeks before the pay-per-view takes place on June 19 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. However, it should be these two superstars that are given the nod to compete in the match.

Bray Wyatt has been out of action since he picked up a right calf injury during WWE's European tour earlier this year. However, if you believe the rumor pages, he is expected to be back competing in the ring sometime in the next couple of weeks.
The New Face of Fear has the potential to be the biggest heel in the business and they need to start building him that way. His charisma, promo skills, and in-ring work tick all the boxes to be a WWE World Heavyweight Champion so he could be a true contender to win if he is inserted into the match by the company.
However, this match could also set up a face turn for Wyatt as well if booked correctly. He is widely speculated to have a feud with Brock Lesnar at this year's SummerSlam, and if The Beast was to attack Bray as he climbed the ladder to reach the briefcase, this would give them a reason to feud.
Neville is another that could be returning to in-ring action soon. He's been out since before WrestleMania 32 when he fractured his ankle during a match with Chris Jericho in March. He was expected to be out for two to three months, so a return could be on the horizon.
Prior to picking up his injury, it was rumored that the British superstar could have been part of the Intercontinental Championship match at WrestleMania with the likes of The Miz, Owens, and Zayn. Being inserted into this match could ignite a feud once more with one of those superstars, perhaps even Cesaro has he got in the IC title picture the night after WrestleMania.
Neville is unlikely to win this match unfortunately if he does qualify, but Bray Wyatt does have a chance in my opinion. If The New Face of Fear is inserted into the match, himself alongside Ambrose and Owens are the favorites in my eyes to climb up the ladder and grab the Money in the Bank briefcase.
