Tomorrow night will mark the return of the exciting Money in the Bank ladder match concept. This year the host of the PPV is going to the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri. Not one but two separate ladder matches will take place in the event of both male and female roster. Plus, the WWE championship will hang in balance between the champion, Jinder Mahal and Randy Orton.
According to the source, Wrestling Observer, WWE is planning to host a segment featuring multiple legends in the middle of the ring, tomorrow night. This will be an attempt to bring some star powers back to sell out the show. Although this has not been confirmed by the company, till date with the reliable source reporting, it is evident to happen.
It is being stated that names like the legendary Ric Flair, Randy ‘Cowboy’ Bob Orton, Larry Hennig, Baron Von Raschke, and Greg Gagne have been contacted to make an appearance. These names are confirmed to make an appearance on the show.
Apart from these names, Gerald Brisco, Rocky Johnson,
and Ted DiBiase are also rumoured to make their presence felt. However, the latter three names are still being speculated rather than confirmed.
It is still not known in which capacity these legends will be utilized. But, considering the recent happenings, they are likely to focus on the WWE Championship match between Randy Orton and Jinder Mahal. Brewing the storyline for the title match, The Viper has mentioned various legends kept on contacting him for his lost against Jinder at Backlash.
Furthermore, Randy had a sit down with Ric Flair in the WWE Network exclusive episode of Table for 3, a few days ago. This association of the legends in this angle will continue when multiple legends including Randy Orton’s father will make appearances at Money in the Bank.
The legends’ names for the night were chosen on the basis of their popularity at St. Louis. Almost all of them were big draws for wrestling promotion during their peak time. Plus, this segment is supposed to fill a void of a match on the PPV card. Only, five matches were announced for Money in the Bank for a show that will be ongoing for three long hours.
