WWE Money in the Bank Opener:
We open the show with a video that hypes the Money in the Bank matches, and the fact that everyone who has cashed in their briefcase has gone on to win the title.
The pyro hits and Michael Cole welcomes us to the show. There are ladders galore around the entrance ramp and ringside. Some of the ladders stand about 3/4 of the way up the Titan Tron. It's a pretty amazing sight. It looks like we're going to open with the Smackdown MITB match.
