Money in the Bank was a professional wrestling pay-per-view and WWE Network event produced by WWE for their Raw and SmackDown brand divisions. It took place on July 18, 2021, at Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas. It was the 12th event in the Money in the Bank chronology and the first to take place in the state of Texas.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, WWE had presented their shows for Raw and SmackDown from a bio-secure bubble called the WWE ThunderDome since August 2020, with the exception of WrestleMania 37 in April 2021, which was the company’s first major event to have live ticketed fans since the pandemic began in mid-March 2020. With the decline of cases and the development of vaccines, WWE announced that they would be leaving the ThunderDome and returning to a live touring schedule in mid-July 2021 with Money in the Bank being the first pay-per-view on this initial 25-city tour. This was the WWE’s first pay-per-view held outside of the state of Florida since Elimination Chamber in March 2020.
Seven matches were contested at the event, including one on the Kickoff pre-show. In the main event, Roman Reigns defeated Edge to retain the Universal Championship. Additionally, Big E and Nikki A.S.H. won their respective men’s and women’s Money in the Bank ladder matches. In other prominent matches, Bobby Lashley defeated Kofi Kingston to retain the WWE Championship and Charlotte Flair defeated Rhea Ripley to win her record-tying fifth Raw Women’s Championship and 13th overall singles championship in the women’s division. The event also saw the surprise return of John Cena, appearing for the first time since WrestleMania 36 in April 2020.
