Following the great success of Clash at the Castle in Cardiff last year, WWE will head back to the United Kingdom in 2023 for one of the company’s ‘Big 5’ events.
The O2 Arena in London will be hosting Money in the Bank on July 2, which will mark the capital of England’s first Premium Live Event in over two decades.
After Triple H became WWE’s Head of Creative, it was speculated whether Money in the Bank would still remain a standalone show or if the signature ladder match would be incorporated within WrestleMania.
However, this morning’s announcement confirmed that the Premium Live Event is here to stay and should be the final stop before SummerSlam.
WWE’s Executive Vice President of Talent, Dan Ventrelle expressed his excitement about the news and said The O2 Arena was the right venue for Money in the Bank to take place.
“The O2 is one of the world’s premier venues and the perfect home for Money In The Bank”, he said.
“We are excited to bring one of our ‘Big 5’ events to the UK and look forward to welcoming the WWE Universe to London on July 1.”

The Senior Programming Director at The O2, Christian D’Acuña was equally as thrilled about the announcement and is eager to bring the WWE Universe to the arena for Money in the Bank.
“We are honoured to be hosting the first ever Money In The Bank event taking place in the UK here at The O2″, he said.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming back WWE fans to The O2 this summer for an unforgettable night with some of WWE’s biggest Superstars.”
Last year’s Money in the Bank briefcases were won by Austin Theory and Liv Morgan, as the former failed his cash-in while the latter had much better luck and became the Smackdown Women’s Champion on the same night.
Drawing back to the Cardiff show’s remarkable achievements, Clash at the Castle became WWE’s most-watched International Premium Live Event in its history. The show also broke the record for their largest-ever European gate and sold the most merchandise for a non-WrestleMania event.
It was unknown whether WWE would return to the United Kingdom in 2023, but this announcement could be a step in the right direction for yearly shows to take place in the country.
