Money in the Bank is the next pay-per-view in the WWE, and the company is already making moves for that highlight clash of the night, the Money in the Bank ladder match.
Five competitors have qualified for the clash so far after Monday Night Raw this week, with only two places left to fill. Sami Zayn, Cesaro, Chris Jericho, Dean Ambrose and Kevin Owens all gained a spot after defeating Sheamus, The Miz, Apollo Crews, Dolph Ziggler and AJ Styles, respectively.
However, the latest news on the rumor mill is that this might not be the only Money in the Bank ladder match on the night, as the Women's division could have their own Money in the Bank ladder match as well.

While the Women's division has had ladder matches in the past, this would be the first time they would have a multi-woman ladder match, so it would be making history in the WWE, and it would fit perfectly into what's been happening in the division over the past year.
With the Divas Revolution seeing the Women of the WWE being given more opportunities in the company, putting on some brilliant matches and most recently dropping the 'Diva' term, you can see why a Women's Money in the Bank ladder match might be in the works. However, there are several reasons why it shouldn't happen this year.
While the Women's division is on the up thanks to the Divas Revolution, it isn't as strong as it could be at the moment. First of all, less than a handful of women on the roster have been pushed since WrestleMania, those being Charlotte, Natalya, Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks, Emma, and Dana Brooks.
With Charlotte champion, Natalya recently defeated, and Emma and Banks injured, Brooks and Lynch are the only superstars that would make sense to be in the ladder match. Anyone else included would just feel like a filler.
The only other available women are Alicia Fox, Lana, Eva Marie, Paige, and Summer Rae, as the rest of the roster - Naomi, Nikki Bella, Tamina, and Rosa Mendes - are inactive due to injuries or maternity leave. Some of them could be ready to return soon and you could call up women from NXT like Bayley as well but there really is no need.
With the higher risk of injury in a ladder match as well, WWE really can't afford to have such a match right now and lose more women to injury, and there is no need for one either. Almost every single woman on the roster has been given a chance to go for the title so far this year, and more opportunities will open up once a new champion is crowned possibly later this year.
A Women's Money in the Bank ladder match is a fantastic idea as a concept and it should come to fruition in the future, but as of right now, it isn't needed.
