WWE’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view is now only a couple of weeks away and rumors for the event are already increasing in number.
What we know for certain is that Roman Reigns will defend his WWE World Heavyweight Championship against Seth Rollins on the show, and Sami Zayn, Cesaro, Chris Jericho, Dean Ambrose, Alberto Del Rio and Kevin Owens will be part of the Money in the Bank ladder match.
Rumored cards have also speculated several other big matches including Rusev vs Titus O’Neil for the United States Championship, Sheamus vs Apollo Crews, The New Day vs The Club, as well as AJ Styles going one on one with John Cena.

At the moment, however, there is still one spot remaining to be filled in the Money in the Bank ladder match.
Several superstars could fill that spot for what is expected to be a brilliant clash if you are to go by the fantastic matches Owens, Zayn and Cesaro have put on while competing for the Intercontinental Championship at Extreme Rules, as well as Jericho and Ambrose’s performance in their Asylum match too.

However, according to the Wrestling Observer - via a report by Wrestling Inc - there may never be a seventh participant in the Money in the Bank ladder match.
Their report said: “As of right now, there will not be a 7th participant in the Money In the Bank Ladder Match later this month. WWE originally planned on 7 Superstars in the match but as of now, there will only be 6.”
The star power already involved in this Money in the Bank ladder match with so many promising future stars means there actually isn’t any need for another superstar to be added, otherwise it will limit the spots each superstar will get in the match.
With the brand split just around the corner as well with both Raw and SmackDown getting unique rosters, there will be plenty of opportunities over the next couple of months for people that would have been included in this match to shine and receive a push.
There are several superstars worthy of this spot such as Randy Orton, Bray Wyatt or Neville if they were to make a return from injury, or Big Cass as a reward for his brilliant push recently, but none of them have received the type of booking expected for a Money in the Bank ladder match winner before he gets his hands on the briefcase.
If no more superstars are added to the match, Owens will be a solid favorite to win the clash, followed closely behind by Ambrose. The Prizefighter is a main eventer already and needs to be booked that way too. A win at Money in the Bank will do just that.
