Money in the Bank (2018) was a professional wrestling pay-per-view (PPV) event and WWE Network event, produced by WWE for their Raw and SmackDown brands. It took place on June 17, 2018, at the Allstate Arena in the Chicago suburb of Rosemont, Illinois. It was the ninth event under the Money in the Bank chronology.

The card comprised eleven matches, including one match on the pre-show. In the main event, Braun Strowman won the titular ladder match on the men's side, while Alexa Bliss won the women's ladder match. Bliss cashed in her contract later in the night to win the Raw Women's Championship from Nia Jax after causing a disqualification in the previous title match between Ronda Rousey and Jax. On the undercard, AJ Styles retained the WWE Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura in a Last Man Standing match, and Carmella retained the SmackDown Women's Championship against Asuka with help from the returning James Ellsworth.

Result List
WWE Championship -- AJ Styles (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura (Last Man Standing): Nakamura chose the stipulation after beating Styles in a one-on-one match on SmackDown. It will be the fourth time they square off with the title on the line (fifth overall one-on-one) dating back to WrestleMania 34.
Raw Women's Championship -- Nia Jax (c) vs. Ronda Rousey: In a major shocker, this match was booked at the NBC upfront presetnation on the red carpet. Most expected Jax to get a new opponent (or fight Bliss again) with it looking like Rousey would take on Mickie James or be in Natalya's corner in a match against James.
SmackDown Women's Championship -- Carmella (c) vs. Asuka: Carmella stunningly earned a clean win over Charlotte Flair at Backlash, but with the knee injury tossed into the finish and Flair in the MITB match, Paige named Asuka the new challenger.
Men's Money in the Bank Ladder Match -- Braun Strowman vs. Finn Balor vs. The Miz vs. Rusev vs. Bobby Roode vs. Kevin Owens vs. New Day member vs. Samoa Joe: The men's Money in the Bank match field is technically not completely set as a member of the New Day will be the final entrant. It is looking like that will not be announced until the show itself.
Women's Money in the Bank Ladder Match -- Ember Moon vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Alexa Bliss vs. Becky Lynch vs. Natalya vs. Lana vs. Naomi vs. Sasha Banks: It is Banks who earned the last spot, but with Bayley not involved in the match directly, one must wonder whether she plays some type of role over the course of the evening. Natalya has been nursing a storyline knee injury that could also play a role in the match's outcome.
Intercontinental Championship -- Seth Rollins (c) vs. Elias: Following an incident on Raw in which Elias smacked Rollins with a guitar, tossing him from atop the announce table, Rollins accepted a challenge for his title on Twitter.
Roman Reigns vs. Jinder Mahal: After repeated altercations with one another on Raw, this one-on-one bout was made official on the May 21 edition of the show. If anything, it'll be quite interesting to see how the Chicago crowd takes to this matchup as a whole.
Daniel Bryan vs. Big Cass: After Cass attacked Bryan following their triple threat match on SmackDown, WWE announced on Twitter that the two will square off against one another in Chicago. Bryan was victorious in their first match at Backlash when he made Cass tap out.
Bobby Lashley vs. Sami Zayn: After the horrific segment on Raw featuring Lashley's "sisters," the match was made on the May 28 edition of Raw where Lashley confronted Zayn to challenge him for Money in the Bank. The match is on, so now we'll see where things go from here.
SmackDown Tag Team Championship -- Bludgeon Brothers (c) vs. Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson (Kickoff Show): In a bit of a surprise, the Good Brothers beat The Usos clean to win a No. 1 contendership and shot at the titles. Anderson also got a clean singles win over Harper. Gallows & Anderson previously won the Raw tag team titles on a kickoff show, so nothing is impossible, but the titles changing hands here would be unlikely.
