For fans in the UK, Detroit might be a bit far – but, thankfully, Money in the Bank will be much closer to home.
In January, it was announced that Money in the Bank 2023 would take place at London’s O2 on Saturday 1 July.
The Money in the Bank happening in London comes after WWE hosted Clash at the Castle at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff last September. It will also be the first WWE Premium Live Event to take place in London since SummerSlam in 1992, which took place at Wembley Stadium.
