Each year WWE’s flagship event, WrestleMania, takes place in early April and features top-tier matches and returns from big-named superstars of years past.

One of the more unique pay-per-view events on the WWE calendar is Money in the Bank, which features ladder matches with a briefcase suspended in the air. The briefcase contains a contract for a championship match, which goes to whichever wrestler who can climb a ladder and nab the briefcase. Whatever wrestler wins the match can cash in their contract at any point in time in the next calendar year for an immediate world championship match.One of the most notable cash-ins was Dolph Ziggler back in 2013, who traded in his briefcase the night after WrestleMania, defeating Alberto Del Rio after the latter was injured in a match. The crowd went wild as Ziggler made his way to the ring, and he eventually pinned Del Rio to become the World Heavyweight Champion.
This year’s Money in the Bank pay-per-view is scheduled to take place on May 19, at the XL Center in Hartford, CT. The XL Center is home to the AHL’s Hartford Wolf Pack and has a seating capacity of 15,564 for wrestling events. SHOP MONEY IN THE BANK TICKETS
