PHILIPPINES – WWE made its return to live crowds this weekend with two back-to-back sell-out arena shows: Friday Night SmackDown® and Money in the Bank®, which broadcast live on Pay-Per-View, The Peacock, and WWE Network from the Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas.
The WWE Universe around the world was treated to an exhilarating night of back-to-back action at Money in the Bank® 2021. Nikki A.S.H and Big E were the evening’s Money in the Bank winners, guaranteeing them a shot at any world championship at any time of their choosing.
In singles action, WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Bobby Lashley, successfully defended the title against former champion, Kofi Kingston, and Charlotte Flair defeated Rhea Ripley to recapture the Raw Women’s Championship for the fifth time in history.
