Money in the Bank is the first post-WrestleMania pay-per-view of the year, and that means there is a lot of pressure on this event to keep fans interested during a slower time of year for WWE.
The company has booked 10 matches for the main show and a tag team bout for the pre-show, so there will be plenty of action to enjoy from every division.
Let's take a look at everything you need to know about Sunday's event.
Venue: XL Center in Hartford, Connecticut

Other Money in the Bank Thoughts
The event is a chance for WWE to reset after WrestleMania and begin pushing some new stars. Whoever wins the coveted briefcases will be guaranteed to receive a major push after the event.
The great thing about this year's show is how nobody really stands out as guaranteed to win the briefcases in the men's or women's matches.
We could see a veteran like Randy Orton or a newcomer to the main roster like Ricochet climb the ladder to achieve victory. Unpredictability is something WWE needs right now, and this event is the perfect opportunity to book a few surprises.
Six will also be on the line, so we could see some new champions at the end of the night even without anyone cashing in their title shot.
With All Elite Wrestling holding its first major event—Double or Nothing—May 25, WWE needs to show the world why it is still the No. 1 organization in pro wrestling.
