Big E won the SmackDown Tag Team Championship for The New Day on the April 17, 2020 edition of SmackDown, marking the eighth Tag Team Title reign for The New Day. While that is a huge accomplishment, it also put a huge target on them as several tag teams are now after their gold. The former champions, The Miz and John Morrison, are looking to reclaim the titles. The Lucha House Party have been overlooked during their time on SmackDown so far, but now they’re looking to claim the top spot in the tag team division. Finally, there’s the blue brand’s newest acquisition, The Forgotten Sons, who have been putting the entire tag team division on notice after picking up victories over both the Lucha House Party and The New Day.

It’s going to be a vicious Fatal-4-Way for the titles at Money in the Bank. Since a member of The New Day doesn’t even have to be pinned or tap out for them to lose the match, will they be able to beat the odds and hold on to the titles?

Bayley has been able to hold on to the SmackDown Women’s Championship for many months now. She was even able to defeat four other challengers at WrestleMania, albeit with a little help from Sasha Banks. One of those challengers was Tamina, who was eliminated by everybody else in the match. Tamina was able to defeat Sasha Banks one-on-one to receive a shot at Bayley’s title.

Tamina will seemingly be fighting a two-on-one battle as Sasha Banks is sure to be at Bayley’s side. However, Lacey Evans has helped out Tamina before in scuffles with Bayley and Banks, so the odds may be even come Money in the Bank.

One of the biggest feel-good moments of the year was Drew McIntyre finally becoming WWE Champion at WrestleMania. He’s been on a tear ever since winning the title, beating competitors such as Big Show and Andrade. “The Monday Night Messiah” Seth Rollins has set his sights on McIntyre and the WWE Championship. Rollins claimed that McIntyre will be a great champion someday, but he’s not a leader.

McIntyre won’t just have to worry about Rollins, but will have to watch out for Rollins’ disciple, Murphy, as well. Be that as it may, McIntyre has proven so far that he is a fighting champion and will take on all comers, even all at once. This is McIntyre’s chance to prove to Rollins that “someday” may be here already.

It started to seem like Braun Strowman was never going to become a World Champion. That is, until he upset Goldberg for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania. “The Monster Among Men” immediately caught the attention of his former leader, Bray Wyatt. Wyatt feels betrayed that Strowman left The Wyatt Family with no explanation and he wants revenge — and, of course, to regain the Universal Championship.

Strowman won’t be facing “The Fiend” at Money in the Bank, instead he’ll be facing the leader of the Firefly Fun House. Even so, there’s no telling what Wyatt has up his sleeve.
