Becky Lynch is reportedly scheduled to be at the WWE Money In the Bank pay-per-view.

There is no word on if Lynch will make her return at the pay-per-view, but PWInsider reports that as of this morning she is scheduled to be in attendance at Money In the Bank.

Lynch was working out in the ring with Indi Hartwell at the WWE Performance Center a few weeks back, as part of the process of getting cleared for her return to action.

Lynch gave birth to her first daughter, with Seth Rollins, back in December. She has been out of action since WrestleMania 36, where she retained the RAW Women’s Title over Shayna Baszler. She then relinquished that title to Asuka a few weeks later, announcing her pregnancy.

It’s believed that WWE is saving some of their bigger returns for when they return to the road later this week, beginning with Friday’s SmackDown on FOX from Houston. Money In the Bank will take place from the Dickies Arena in Fort Worth.

Report: Major WWE Star Will Be at Money in the Bank 2021

ComicBook.com 15 July, 2021 - 05:04pm

WWE reportedly has quite a few surprises lined up for the next couple of weeks, and a big one might be on the way at Money in the Bank this Sunday. According to PWInsider, Becky Lynch will be at Dickie's Arena in Fort Worth, TX on Sunday for the pay-per-view, though it's not clear if she'll appear onscreen. "The Man" has been absent from WWE television since announcing her pregnancy in May 2020, though she did tease returning at both the Royal Rumble and at WrestleMania 37. It's also entirely possible that she'll be back on Friday's edition of SmackDown in Houston, which marks WWE's official return to the road.

"Becky Lynch is scheduled to be at this Sunday's Money in the Bank PPV, PWInsider.com has confirmed," Mike Johnson wrote. "There is no word yet whether Lynch will be appearing on camera but as of this morning, she is slated to be in attendance at the PPV."

Lynch stated in interviews shortly after her pregnancy announcement that she has every intention of wrestling full-time as a mother. She and Seth Rollins welcomed their daughter, Roux, back in December.

"That's something that I've always preached and wanted women to have that equality," she said in an interview with ESPN at the time. "And of course, to be on the level with the male performers and be on the same level in terms of pay, in terms of treatment. But also, this kind of goes hand in hand where a guy can go and have a kid and doesn't have to miss a beat in his career. Unfortunately, we do. But that's also a fortunate thing because we get to experience things that they never will, but also it just doesn't mean that it's got to be the end for a career in any line. And I think a lot of people have proved that, and I hope to join them."

"It's one of those things where I know what I feel and think as a person without a child," Lynch added. "I don't know what that's going to look like when I do have one, and that's my priority. I'll tell you, it'll give me more motivation than ever, I could imagine. But this isn't the end of me, one way or the other."

WWE Rumors: Becky Lynch Scheduled to Be in Attendance at WWE Money in the Bank PPV

Bleacher Report 15 July, 2021 - 05:04pm

WWE Superstar Becky Lynch is reportedly scheduled to be present for Sunday's Money in the Bank pay-per-view in Fort Worth, Texas.

According to PWInsider (h/t WrestlingInc.com's Marc Middleton), Lynch will be in attendance at Money in the Bank, but it isn't yet known if she will make an on-screen appearance.

Lynch's last appearance on WWE programming was on the May 11, 2020, episode of Raw when she surrendered the Raw Women's Championship to Asuka and announced she was pregnant.

Lynch gave birth to her daughter with now-husband Seth Rollins in December, and speculation regarding her return has run rampant in the months since.

Prior to taking time away for her pregnancy, Lynch had established herself as one of the biggest wrestling stars in WWE history.

At WrestleMania 35 in 2019, Lynch competed in the main event, beating Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair in a Triple Threat for the Raw and SmackDown Women's titles. That marked the first women's match to ever headline WrestleMania.

Becky would go on to hold the Raw Women's title for over a year, beating Shayna Baszler at WrestleMania 36 in her final title defense before relinquishing it.

It was previously reported by Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (h/t Lennard Surrao of SportsKeeda) that WWE had discussed plans for Lynch to make her return at WrestleMania 36 in April by interrupting Bayley.

Meltzer noted that it didn't happen because Lynch hadn't yet signed a new contract at that time, but she has signed a new deal since.

Money in the Bank would be the perfect setting for Lynch to make her return since fans will be in attendance.

Aside from WrestleMania 37, WWE has not had fans present for a pay-per-view in well over a year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, so the WWE Universe should be ready to provide huge pops for any big moments they witness in Fort Worth.

It should also be noted that there is still one open spot in the women's Money in the Bank ladder match, meaning the possibility is present for a surprise.

Having Lynch take that spot would result in a massive reaction, and it would likely see her win the match as well, which would make for some interesting angles coming out of the pay-per-view with her having a guaranteed title opportunity to her credit.

WWE: 'Cool and exciting' surprises planned for shows this weekend

GIVEMESPORT 15 July, 2021 - 05:04pm

WWE fans are set to return to shows later on this week on Friday Night SmackDown, with fans also slated to be in attendance for Money in the Bank two days later. With these two big shows, WWE is reportedly planning some "cool and exciting" surprises that fans should look out for.

Reliable Twitter source WrestleVotes is reporting that WWE sources have told them that the company "has come cool and exciting things planned" for the SmackDown and Money in the Bank shows this week.

The report also notes that fans would "expect a surprise or two", before going on to state these being the first shows with fans in over 17 months means this is a "pivotal time" for WWE:

With the ThunderDome officially behind them, source states that WWE has some cool & exciting things planned for this weekend….. Expect a surprise or two. Truly a pivotal time in recent WWE history.

What we do know is that the surprises won't stop this week, as reports have suggested that WWE is planning on having John Cena appear on the July 23 episode of Friday Night SmackDown, which you can read more about by clicking here.

As we have seen with the debut of Malakai Black (Aleister Black) on AEW Dynamite last week, promotions seem intent on having big debuts and returns on their first shows back with fans, so this should be a very exciting time for WWE and wrestling fans.

GiveMeSport will have live coverage of both Friday Night SmackDown this week and Money in the Bank this weekend, so make sure you stay tuned for that.

Report: Exciting Surprises Planned For WWE's Return To Touring This Weekend

After almost 18 months without having fans in attendance, with the exception of WrestleMania 37 in April, WWE will finally return to a touring schedule and putting on events in front of the WWE Universe from Friday.

This week's SmackDown will mark the return of the WWE Universe with a host of big matches, including a SmackDown Women's Championship bout between Bianca Belair and Carmella, and a six-man tag-team match putting Universal Champion Roman Reigns and The Usos against Edge and SmackDown Tag Team Champions Rey and Dominik Mysterio.

Following SmackDown, WWE will present Money In The Bank on Sunday before Raw on Monday evening, and according to WrestleVotes, fans can expect some exciting developments at the coming shows this weekend.

The reliable account wrote: "With the ThunderDome officially behind them, source states that WWE has some cool & exciting things planned for this weekend….. Expect a surprise or two. Truly a pivotal time in recent WWE history."

In terms of surprises, John Cena has been tipped for an imminent return to the WWE ring, while rumours around the likes of Brock Lesnar and Becky Lynch also persist.

Big E Surges Past Drew McIntyre As New Money In The Bank 2021 Favorite

Forbes 15 July, 2021 - 05:04pm

Big E has risen to the top of the field in the WWE Money in the Bank 2021 odds, surging past previous favorite Drew McIntyre. McIntyre, with 7/4 odds (per BetOnline.ag), was listed as the favorite as recently as Saturday, however Big E now has those same odds with the top babyface McIntyre now positioned at third with 4/1 odds.

Money in the Bank emanates from Fort Worth, Texas this Sunday, in front of a live crowd, in WWE’s first pay-per-view with an actual audience since WrestleMania 37. Of course, Money in the Bank odds are best taken wit ha grain of salt given the unpredictability of match winners itself. Last year, AJ Styles (-125) had the best odds with eventual winner Otis a +400 underdog.

In 2019, the Money in the Bank winner came from off the board as Brock Lesnar shockingly—and infamously—won the briefcase.

Big E being listed as the favorite, however, bodes well for the rising babyface as he continues to build a head of steam in a slow-burning singles run. Big E winning the briefcase would also play into current Raw storylines as Big E’s fellow New Day member Kofi Kingston is set to challenge Bobby Lashley for the WWE Championship. Kingston is currently listed as a massive +700 underdog, and based on Bobby Lashley’s fiery go-home promo in the final WWE Raw from the ThunderDome, a squash very well could be in order.

Provided Big E wins, Lashley, who shockingly lost to Xavier Woods this past Monday, and his continued rivalry with The New Day could open the door for Big E to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase on the top Raw star.

Lashley’s matchup against Kingston this Sunday will be the first time in WWE history that two black men will compete in a one-on-one match for the WWE Championship. A Big E win would mean even more black history as the former Intercontinental champion would become the first black WWE Superstar to win the Money in the Bank briefcase, which has an aggressively white history of winners.

WWE has taken major strides toward not only implementing diversity among its top stars, but also—and more importantly—leaning into black culture as a means to attract a younger audience.

WWE’s pursuit of Cardi B to possibly host SummerSlam remains the worst-kept secret in wrestling, while next week’s WWE SmackDown will feature a joint broadcast with the Rolling Loud hip-hop concert.

As WWE continues to crawl over the fence toward the right side of history, while also in need of credible babyfaces, a Big E victory could be a boon that can simultaneously check several boxes of priorities that the promotion desperately needs to address.

Sunday's show will be the first major WWE pay-per-view, apart from WrestleMania 37, to have fans in attendance in over a year, as the promotion returns to live events and a touring schedule.

Let's not forget last year's Money In The Bank show however. Largely performed from the WWE Performance Center, the two titular matches were instead presented in cinematic format, emanating from WWE Headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut. 

I, for one, am looking forward to explaining it all to my kids and grandkids in years to come. 

Anyway, Money In The Bank 2020 was a decent show and a nice distraction from the perils that surrounded us last year. But how many of the involved performers can you remember? 

That's today's quiz! Name everyone involved at WWE Money In The Bank 2020. Good luck, and let us know on social media how you get on!
