A change has been made to the men’s Money in the Bank match.

WWE announced tonight following Raw that Apollo would be unable to compete in the men’s Money in the Bank match, writing: “Apollo Crews suffered a knee injury that left him unable to continue in his United States Championship Match with Andrade on Raw. Due to that injury, Crews will no longer be able to compete in the Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match on Sunday, May 10.”

The storyline injury happened towards the end of a United States championship match between Apollo and champion Andrade. Apollo jumped off the top rope and fell down immediately afterwards, clutching his leg. The referee checked on Apollo and stopped the match, awarding Andrade the win.

Later in the show, Apollo was shown walking away from the trainer’s area with ice wrapped around his knee. Charly Caruso asked if this will hinder his progress. He didn't answer and walked away, upset.

Daniel Bryan, Rey Mysterio, Aleister Black and King Corbin are set for the men’s Money in the Bank ladder match. A match between Otis and Dolph Ziggler this Friday on SmackDown will determine the fifth participant.
