As we journey down the pathway to the Money in the Bank event, all roads lead to next week's episode of "WWE Raw," set to emanate from the bustling city of Hartford, Connecticut. The lineup for this much-anticipated episode features an enthralling showdown between Becky Lynch, known widely as "The Man," and the resilient Sonya Deville.
This bout will serve as a qualifier for the coveted women's ladder match, offering an opportunity for these fierce athletes to secure their spot in the upcoming high-stakes event. In addition to this compelling matchup, the Raw audience will be treated to another exciting face-off as Zoey Stark, the rising star, goes head-to-head with the seasoned veteran Natalya in another qualifier match.
The evolving alliance between Stark and Trish Stratus has piqued fans' interest worldwide, and the ongoing rivalry with Lynch is bound to add an extra layer of excitement to the impending Money in the Bank ladder match.
"Stark-Lynch Rivalry Intensifies for Bank Match"
On the heels of Stark's recent intervention that led to Stratus' victory over Lynch at the Night of Champions and the subsequent attack on Lynch during a promo segment on Raw, it's evident that if both Stark and Lynch manage to qualify, this hatred will translate into a fascinating dynamic during the Money in the Bank ladder match.
Before these electrifying qualifying matches on Monday, WWE will determine the first entrant into the Women's Money in the Bank Ladder Match this Friday on "WWE SmackDown." Fans are holding their breath as Zelina Vega, despite her recent losing streak, squares off against Lacey Evans, who's been absent from television since her tag team matches on the March 24 "SmackDown." The contest has become increasingly unpredictable, with fans split over who they believe will emerge victorious.
While Lynch vs. Deville and Stark vs. Natalya are the confirmed battles for the next episode of "Raw," other segments and matches remain in mystery. Nevertheless, WWE has hinted at Matt Riddle potentially earning a shot at a Money in the Bank qualifier match following GUNTHER's challenge on Raw.
The competition is heating up with Nakamura and Ricochet already qualified and either Montez Ford or LA Knight poised to join the fray on Friday. This year, the Money in the Bank event will take place in London's illustrious O2 Arena on July 1, promising to deliver an unforgettable spectacle.
