Big E Confirms Plans To Cash In His MONEY IN THE BANK Briefcase During Tonight's Episode Of RAW!
After AEW Dynamite beat RAW in the 18-49 demographic, Randy Orton's WWE Championship match against Bobby Lashley was moved to tonight's show...however, SmackDown's Big E plans to cash in his MITB briefcase!
WWE may still be drawing more total viewers than AEW, but after last week's Dynamite topped RAW in the key 18-49 demographic, Vince McMahon is in panic mode. The WWE Championship match with Bobby Lashley and Randy Orton has already been moved from Extreme Rules to tonight's show, but there are more big plans being put in place.
After rumours started doing the rounds about current Money in the Bank briefcase holder Big E being on RAW (he's a SmackDown Superstar), The New Day member has now confirmed that.
However, he's also revealed that he intends to cash in on Lashley, so it should be very interesting watching how this plays out. Big E becoming WWE Champion would be huge, but if WWE screws this up...well, they could lose a lot of goodwill from fans excited to see him get a main event push.
Monday Night Football is back too, so the odds will be stacked against RAW in terms of ratings.
Whether this promised cash in will work remains to be seen, but it seems like competition is definitely bringing out the best in WWE. Needless to say, we'll keep you updated later this evening!
Let’s let that cat out of the bag…I intend on cashing in my Money in the Bank contract tonight and cashing in to become WWE Champion.— Ettore “Big E” Ewen (@WWEBigE) September 13, 2021
