Coronavirus: 2020 Money In The Bank & WWE European Tour Officially Canceled
As reported earlier, The Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore, Maryland announced last afternoon that 2020 WWE Money In the Bank pay-per-view has been canceled. The wake of coronavirus pandemic left the host arena with no choice but to call off the show releasing an official announcement on Twitter,
“The WWE Money In the Bank event originally scheduled for Sunday May 10 in Baltimore has been canceled. Refunds are available at all points of purchase.”

It does not mean that Money In The Bank would entirely be pulled off from the WWE schedule as WWE is still advertising the show. It is likely to be postponed or possibly taped from the WWE Performance Center due to the COVID-19 outbreak as the company continues to tape shows from the venue.
WWE has not announced what will happen to the pay-per-view, but this announcement from the Baltimore arena confirms that the original venue won’t host it, next month.
At present, WWE does not have Money In The Bank listed in its 2020 pay-per-view event schedule. It was originally supposed to be the post WrestleMania pay-per-view.
But the status of the show is up in the air, for now. Perhaps, we may get a hint of what WWE would do with the show when tonight’s episode of SmackDown takes place from the PC.
Apart from Money In The Bank, the annual post-WrestleMania 36 tour of WWE to the United Kingdom has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It was announced that the following live events and SmackDown tapings have been rescheduled to October 2020 and April 2021:
* Glasgow Scotland – moved from May 3 to October 7
* Birmingham, England – moved from May 5 to October 4
* Cardiff, Wales – moved from May 6 to October 5
* Sheffield, England – moved from May 7 to October 6
* London, England – moved from May 8 to October 9 (SmackDown on FOX taping)
* Newcastle, England – moved from May 4 to April 30, 2021
Several episodes of NXT UK have also been rearranged amid the coronavirus outbreak around Europe. There were some uncertainties around WWE’s weekly programming i.e. Raw, SmackDown and NXT but the taping was somehow reorganized from tonight onwards at the Performance Center. Several new episodes of the three brands will be carried out those will be aired, as per schedule.
