However, nothing has been confirmed yet, and it will be interesting to see how the final lineup for the high-stakes bout shapes up in the coming weeks.
Meanwhile, this would be the first MITB premium live event outside of the USA and WWE's first major event in England since 2003. Fans can expect a stacked card for the premium live event besides the traditional ladder matches.
LA Knight is rumored to win the Men's Money in the Bank Ladder Match
For those unaware, a recent report suggested that LA Knight is the leading candidate to win this year's Money in the Bank Ladder Match in London, England. The veteran has made a name for himself in WWE courtesy of his character work and promo skills. His recent run has earned him huge praise from fans and critics alike.
In a recent exclusive chat with Sportskeeda, wrestling veteran Dutch Mantell shared his thoughts on Knight.
"I think he’s a very valuable performer to them, and they wanna take their time with him. I’d rather [suggest] they take their time instead of trying to rush him. I think that helps him in the long run, and that helps WWE (…) He kind of puts off a little bit of Stone Cold vibes to me.“He goes, ‘Hey, let me talk to you,’ and people like that. I think he can go out there, and as the old saying goes, he can talk them into the building.“You give him something hot, and I think he’s gonna take off and run.” [32:37 - 33:17]
Knight has struggled to find his footing on the main roster following his feud with Bray Wyatt. Nonetheless, if there is any truth behind the recent reports, fans can expect a significant push for the 40-year-old shortly.
