WWE has revealed how Apollo Crews' replacement for Money in the Bank will be decided.

It was announced on this morning's episode of WWE's The Bump that a last chance gauntlet match will air on Monday's Raw, with the winner becoming the final wrestler to qualify for the men's Money in the Bank ladder match. The participants for the gauntlet match weren't announced.

Aleister Black, Rey Mysterio, Daniel Bryan, and Baron Corbin have qualified for the men's ladder match. SmackDown's final participant for it will be determined by a qualifying match between Otis and Dolph Ziggler this Friday.

In Raw's qualifying matches, Black defeated Austin Theory, Mysterio defeated Murphy, and Crews originally qualified by defeating MVP. Bryan defeated Cesaro in his qualifying match, while Corbin defeated Drew Gulak.

Crews was pulled from the men's ladder match after being involved in an injury angle on this week's Raw. Crews challenged Andrade for the United States Championship on Monday's show, but it ended in a stoppage after Crews tweaked his knee.

This year's Money in the Bank ladder matches are taking place at WWE headquarters. Shayna Baszler, Asuka, Nia Jax, Dana Brooke, Lacey Evans, and either Mandy Rose or Carmella will be in the women's ladder match.

Monday's Raw is the brand's go-home show for Money in the Bank. In what appears to be a non-title match, Raw Tag Team Champions The Street Profits will face off with The Viking Raiders on the episode.
