The card for the Money in the Bank pay-per-view is truly beginning to take shape as every single member of both of the titular ladder matches were confirmed earlier in the week. In addition to the ladder matches, a few other championship matches from Raw and Smackdown have been confirmed for the show recently as well. Another match was announced for the Money in the Bank pay-per-view earlier today, and it appears to be a rematch from last month’s Backlash show. Although Daniel Bryan defeated Big Cass at that show, it is clear that the feud is far from over. As a result, WWE has just confirmed that Bryan and Cass will face each other once again at Money in the Bank later this month.

It was common for a wrestler to be accompanied to the ring by a manager back in the day, but that trend has largely been diminished over the years. Aside from Paul Heyman working as Brock Lesnar’s advocate, there are no male managers on WWE programming right now at all. According to former WWE writer Jimmy Jacobs during an interview with Fightful, the company had a policy in the past that stated that they do not hire male managers anymore. Jacobs does believe that the trend may return over time, but WWE will mostly be sticking to having valets accompany wrestlers to the ring. WWE had The Authors of Pain split away from their manager Paul Ellering after they were called up from NXT to Raw earlier this year.
A ton of top WWE talent first became recognized in a promotion called Ring of Honor. The likes of AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Roderick Strong, Adam Cole, Daniel Bryan, and several others all made a name for themselves in ROH before they arrived to WWE. There now appears to be an additional name from the promotion that the company is interested in hiring. According to PWInsider, current ROH World Champion Dalton Castle in on WWE’s radar. It was mentioned that Castle is the only member of the current ROH roster that WWE is likely to pursue aggressively after his current deal with the promotion expires. Castle is heavily rumored to be losing his ROH title to Cody Rhodes before the All In show on September 1st.
