When Is Money in the Bank 2021 WWE?

Money in the Bank is an upcoming professional wrestling pay-per-view and WWE Network event produced by WWE for their Raw and SmackDown brand divisions. It is scheduled to take place on July 18, 2021 at Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas. wikipedia.orgMoney in the Bank (2021)

One of the last spots in this year's women's Money in the Bank ladder match has now been filled.

WWE announced on Monday that Natalya will be taking part in the women's Money in the Bank ladder match. The announcement was made via a tweet from WWE authority figure Sonya Deville.

Deville wrote: "With all the changes and challengers for #MITB and #Smackdown, I will be the one to establish some consistency for this Sunday and there is NO ONE more consistent than 1/2 of our @WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions…@natbynature. Nattie, welcome to the MITB Ladder Match!"

Natalya joins Asuka, Naomi, Alexa Bliss, Nikki Cross, Zelina Vega, and Liv Morgan in the women's Money in the Bank ladder match. There's still one more wrestler left to be announced for the match.

Carmella had originally been announced as one of the women's Money in the Bank participants. But with Bayley injured and out of her scheduled match against SmackDown Women's Champion Bianca Belair at Money in the Bank, it was announced that Belair will instead be defending her title against Carmella on this Friday's SmackDown. Morgan was then announced as Carmella's replacement for the women's Money in the Bank ladder match.

Natalya & Tamina are the current WWE Women's Tag Team Champions. They lost a non-title match to the debuting Shotzi Blackheart & Tegan Nox on SmackDown this past Friday.

Money in the Bank is taking place at Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas this Sunday (July 18). Here's the updated card for the pay-per-view:

WWE Raw LIVE coverage and commentary w/ Kevin Christopher Sullivan (07.12.21)

Wrestling News World 12 July, 2021 - 06:42pm

Hey, kids. Kevin Christopher Sullivan here. You can call me Kevin. Or Sully. Heck, you can call me John Jacob Jingleheimer-Schmidt if you want, as long as you're interacting with me.  On second thought, maybe don't call me that. I would probably get confused. Whatever. Tweet at me @HeyImKevinSully, use the hashtag #WNWRaw, or use the comments down below. Come say hi.

Tonight is a night of lasts on Raw. It's the last Raw before Sunday's Money in the Bank PPV. It's the very last (for now, anyway, unless those Delta Variant boogeyman stories turn out to be true) Raw from the ThunderDome. The last... er... that's about it, I think. Let me know if I forgot something. Tweet, hashtag, comments - that old chestnut.

(9:59pm) Lashley is gonna beat up Kofi Kingston on Sunday, he says. He sounds like he means it.

(9:57pm) Lashley sends the ladies out of the ring, and then yells at MVP, blaming him for his recent losses.

(9:56pm) Lashley finally comes to the ring, looking very glum. Maybe he's worried about Hamburgo Camino.

(9:55pm) MVP introduces Bobby Lashley to the ring but no Lashley. Where could he be??

(9:49pm) The VIP Lounge w/ special guest WWE Champion Roberto Lashlinino will be on right after these commercial messages.

(9:47pm) It looks like Charlotte really did a number of Ripley's knee. WILL SHE BE 100% BY SUNDAY FOR HER MATCH?!!1

(9:46pm) Charlotte attacks Rhea after the match and how was Rhea not even, like, kind of expecting that? 

(9:44pm) Natalya gets the Sharpshooter on Rhea, but Rhea flips her over into the turnbuckles.

(9:34pm) Rhea Ripley is in the ring and she's going to have a wrestling match against Natalya, who is now coming to the ring. And so is Tamina. Because they are friends.

(9:17pm) Natalya says she wants to be the first woman to hold all the WWE women's division championships at once. She's got Raw Women's Champion Rhea Ripley tonight. Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke make fun of her and Tamina and Tamina pushes Dana Brooke and Brooke wants to fight but Mandy stops her and tonight's Raw coverage is brought to you by run-on sentences.

(9:13pm) Ricochet rides the back of Miz's wheelchair down the ramp and uses it to leap onto Morrison!

(9:11pm) RIcochet attempts to throw Morrison into the video screen on the top of the ramp but forget that it's just, like, a projector screen and not an actual monitor so it was like he interrupted a school flipstrip.

(9:05pm) Morrison struggles to get to his feet on the floor, and Ricochet is apparently tired of living as he bolts across the ring, jumps to the top turnbuckle, then to the top of the ringpost and then a FRIGGIN' SHOOTING STAR PRESS (because of COURSE he did) onto Morrison and now they have both died I think.

(9:04pm) Ricochet leaps off the security barricade and just NAILS Morrison with a 450 splash onto the concrete-though-covered-with-a-mat floor!

(9:00pm) John Morrison is beating up Ricochet.

(8:33pm) The New Day and Lucha House Party have a nice pleasant conversation and then a reporter comes over and tells them that Bobby Lashley has come back to the ThunderDome. Woods and Kofi don't seem concerned.

(8:24pm) He's also really strong, as he's got Erik in a bearhug and it's working. That, or Omos is a hugger.

(8:22pm) Holy f***, Omos is tall.

(8:15pm) Well, Ivar is pretty much decimating A.J. right now, which probably means we're going to go to a commercial and when we get back, Styles will have the advantage.

(8:11pm) "Salmonella infested" is the type of insult you get when you don't script everybody's promos, you guys.

(7:40pm) Nikki A.S.H. and Riddle meet up backstage and Riddle does more of his dopey stoned guy act and I'm all about it. Also, there's a Fatal Four Way between her, Asuka, Naomi, and Alexa Bliss. After we watch 13 commercials for the new Space Jam movie.

(7:38pm) Oh, look, I was right.

This is also the point that I remind everybody that a) Raw is about more than the matches, b) there's a lot of Raw left and c) Lashley is probably going to destroy Woods backstage before the end of the show. Hell, I'd say before the end of the hour.

(7:20pm) Coming up next - Eva Marie and Doudrop are the guests on Alexa's Playground which I'm betting is going to be a nice, civil chat and nothing ridiculous will happen whatsoever.

(7:17pm) Lashley picks up Woods into a Fireman's Carry and then just tosses him into the ring post. Ouch.

(7:14pm) Woods is trying to make a comeback here, reversing a side slam into a tornado DDT - then follows it up with a somersault plancha onto the floor because that sounds like the right follow-up. :/

(7:07pm) And we're kicking off the action with Xavier Woods taking on the WWE Champion and guy who is probably about to murder Xavier Woods Bobby Lashley.

(7:02pm) Raw starts out with a recap of the Hurt Business/New Day feud.
