The Ladder To Potential Failure Still Has Me intrigued

This year's WWE Money in the Bank matches are going to be intriguing.

Usually, the male and female matches to crown a Money in the Bank winner is done in a ladder match with the briefcase held above the ring. The winner is the first person to get to the case and remove it.

This year, with WWE having to change things up due to the Coronavirus outbreak, will film the two matches inside - and on top! - of its headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut.

Instead of hanging above a ring, the briefcases - for both matches - will be left on the roof of the office building. The wrestlers have to start out on the ground floor and work their way up to the roof to get the prize.

As I said, it's an intriguing idea. It's making the most out of a bad situation and allows for WWE to film the sequences like an action movie in a similar way to the boneyard match that was done for WrestleMania 36.

With that said, WrestleMania 36 had a falls count anywhere match inside the WWE Performance Center which dragged and I can't help but feel that the Money in the Bank match will be more like Edge .vs. Randy Orton than The Undertaker .vs. AJ Styles.

Still - it's something to watch just to see

The tagline of the match gets two thumbs up from me, though.

The company is plugging the bouts as 'Climbing The Corporate Ladder'.

WWE Money in the Bank is scheduled to air on the WWE Network on May 10th.
