Additionally, it presents a golden opportunity for Riddle to vie for singles championship glory once again, as he aims to bounce back from his previous unsuccessful attempt at capturing the United States Championship from Seth Rollins on the October 17 edition of Raw.
The highly anticipated WWE Money in the Bank event is scheduled to take place at the iconic O2 Arena in London, England, on Saturday, July 1. Wrestling fans around the world can expect an electrifying night of action and suspense as these two talented competitors clash for the Intercontinental Championship.
