WWE Chairman Vince McMahon might have some new plans for WWE WrestleMania 39. The company’s recent promo for the upcoming Money in the Bank premium live event drew the attention of the fans. One of the top stars of the company Cody Rhodes appeared to say that the winners of the coveted MITB briefcases would go on to get a title shot at WrestleMania. Fans immediately noted the huge changes for the show.
The ad was re-aired on the Raw after WrestleMania Backlash. This led even more people to believe that the stipulation will be that the Money in the Bank winners goes to WrestleMania instead of a traditional cash-in. WWE sources are not confirming anything either way.
Vince McMahon seemingly doesn’t have definitive plan for the show
In this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer discussed the MITB situation. It was reported that the only direct word from WWE is that nothing has been definitively planned either way. It was also noted that Vince McMahon already has plans in place for WrestleMania 39’s main events, but that the briefcase winners are not set to be involved.
“There was an interesting note in the new ad for the 7/2 Money in the Bank show. Rhodes talked about how the winners of the MITB matches get a shot at the title at WrestleMania. He didn’t say that you get cash it in whenever you want. A lot of people quickly jumped to the conclusion that it was a mistake, including in the company where the belief was that this year’s MITB stipulations would be the same as for every other year. Some said they believed it was a mistake that wasn’t caught, but then WWE played the same commercial he next day on Raw and the day after on NXT. On NXT after the commercial when they pushed the show, they didn’t acknowledge what the winners of the two matches get.
The only direct company word regarding that question was there is nothing definitive either way. Another person said that Vince has plans already in place for the top matches at Mania and the winners of MITB in the title matches wouldn’t be that, although that commercial aired three times without an edit.”
