With the Money In The Bank just a few days away, the focus of the WWE universe is once again on who will walk out of Las Vegas with the coveted briefcase.
A contract that allows the holder to cash in whenever and wherever they choose, for a world title match, is one of WWE’s greatest ideas and has created some of the most exciting moments in WWE history.
The contract has become popular enough to earn its own Pay-Per-View in the WWE calendar, however, this is a decision not favoured by all in the WWE universe.

For the first five years of its existence, Money In The Bank was a fixture of WWE’s biggest show, WrestleMania. Beginning at 'Mania 21, the ladder match took place on six shows in total, before being moved to its own personal Pay-Per-View in 2010.
Whilst the decision to give the match its own Pay-Per-View has made some fans happy, it has angered a fair few others, but should WWE really consider moving it back to WrestleMania?
The argument could be made that since Money In The Bank is so important, it should take place at WWE’s most important show. Money In The Bank has important ramifications throughout WWE, so it could be said that it’s a match worthy of WWE’s grandest stage.
Not only might it increase the significance of the match to have it at WrestleMania, a show many more casual fans would watch, but it might also get better performances out of its participants as many wrestlers often go the extra mile for WWE’s biggest annual event.
WWE clearly miss Money In The Bank at WrestleMania as they’ve basically held it for the past two years, replacing the briefcase with the Intercontinental Title.
Ladder matches can be incredible to watch with the right participants, and, if previous WrestleMania ladder matches are anything to go by, changing the venue would not affect the quality of the match one bit.
It also gives a chance for those who may not receive a spot on the card to have their WrestleMania moment.
Money In The Bank is all about the next top stars getting their chance, so surely having these stars fight on the grandest stage of them all falls in with this ethos. Giving mid-carders, who may not necessarily have a match at WrestleMania, is a huge reason for Money In The Bank returning to the grandest stage of them all.
Money In The Bank as a Pay-Per-View is a good idea, it makes the match seem important, gives fans something to look forward to in between WrestleMania and SummerSlam and has produced many great moments.
However, WWE should return the match to WrestleMania as not only would the match not suffer, it might even improve in quality and prestige. Money In The Bank is one of the most exciting fixtures of WWE programming, one that deserves its spot on the grandest stage of them all.
