Money In The Bank Qualifying Matches Set For Tonight's WWE Raw

WWE confirmed on Twitter this morning that Money in the Bank qualifying matches will indeed get underway tonight when the May 29 edition of "WWE Raw" comes to the MVP Arena in Albany, New York. However, for the time being, they are remaining coy on who the participants will be. That isn't the case for this Friday's "WWE SmackDown," though. It was confirmed last week that LA Knight will be facing off against Montez Ford while Zelina Vega takes on Lacey Evans in their respective qualifying matches.

One potential participant we can almost certainly already rule out on the women's side of things, though, is last year's winner Liv Morgan. Due to a recent shoulder injury, her and Raquel Rodriguez were forced to relinquish their WWE Women's Tag Team Championships a couple of weeks ago. While there remains no timeline for a return, in even more unfortunate news it was reported that Morgan's injury was worse than expected. In fact, she may require surgery.

With Night of Champions in the rearview, it will be interesting to see if any past winners throw their name in the hat. On "Raw," Braun Strowman, The Miz, Otis, Seth Rollins, and even Brock Lesnar have secured the briefcase before. Though with Rollins becoming the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion over the weekend, that likely takes him out of the equation. When it comes to the women of "Raw" aside from Morgan, the likes of Nikki Cross (then Nikki A.S.H.) and Alexa Bliss are past winners as well. And with so many recent call-ups from "WWE NXT" to consider, the possibilities for these qualifying matches are endless.

Until then, Money in the Bank is scheduled for Saturday, July 1 in London, England.
