Seth Rollins attacked Drew McIntyre last week following his match against Andrade on Monday Night Raw, this then began speculation that suggested that Rollins would be McIntyre’s next challenger for the WWE Championship match at Money in the Bank.
Interestingly, it was McIntyre who laid down the challenge this week for Rollins to fight for his Championship next month at the annual Money in the Bank pay-per-view following the beating he subjected at the hands of the Monday Night Messiah.
Rollins answered the challenge by stating that he was accepting but only out of necessity, while also pointing out all of the things that he and McIntyre have in common.
Rollins went on to state that he would take the WWE Championship from The Scottish star on May 10th, not because he wanted to, but because he had to.
In one of the biggest shocks of the night, Apollo Crews was able to find a way past MVP, who returned to the company for another one-off match tonight on Raw. The former United States Champion was looking for one last push in WWE with a win in tonight’s qualifying match, but Apollo Crews’ push to the top continued this week when he was able to find a way past MVP with The Chariot.
It was one of the more interesting match-ups announced as a Money in the Bank qualifier since MVP hasn’t been seen on Raw since he was RKO’d by Edge ahead of WrestleMania, but The Playmaker announced the matchup last week from the VIP lounge and many fans expected him to find a way through to the ladder match.
As of writing, Apollo Crews, Daniel Bryan and Aleister Black have qualified for the Men’s Money in the Bank ladder match, with three slots still yet to be decided.
