6. Four Matches Set For Next Week’s SmackDown Live (Including A Money In The Bank Ladder Match)
As seen on this week’s episode of SmackDown Live, SmackDown Live General Manager Daniel Bryan stripped Carmella off the Money in the Bank contract and announced a second Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder match for next week’s episode. Below is what WWE posted:
Second-ever Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match to take place next Tuesday on SmackDown LIVE
The women of SmackDown LIVE will get another opportunity to make history next Tuesday in the second-ever Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match. The first match at WWE Money in the Bank was supposed to be a historic occasion, though it was arguably tarnished when James Ellsworth knocked Becky Lynch off a ladder, then climbed it himself. He retrieved the briefcase and tossed it down to a waiting Carmella. The Princess of Staten Island and Ellsworth gloated on SmackDown LIVE, flaunting in the faces of the WWE Universe that they had done nothing wrong by the letter of the law in the WWE Rulebook.
However, Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Natalya and Tamina saw things differently, and the four women urged SmackDown LIVE General Manager Daniel Bryan to “do the right thing.” After considering all options, Bryan revealed that all five women would compete in another Ladder Match for the guaranteed title opportunity. Bryan took the briefcase from an astonished Carmella and announced on WWE Talking Smack that Ellsworth will be banned from ringside.
With Ellsworth’s meddling out of the equation, will Carmella be able to retrieve the briefcase, or will one of the other four Superstars be calling themselves Ms. Money in the Bank? Find out next Tuesday on SmackDown LIVE at 8/7 C on USA Network!
Below are the four matches that’ll take place next week on SmackDown Live:
– Women’s Money In The Bank Ladder Match: Carmella vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch vs. Tamina Snuka vs. Natalya
– SmackDown Women’s Championship Match: Naomi (c) vs. Lana
– SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos vs. The Hype Bros (If Hype Bros win, they’ll receive a Tag Team Title shot)
– Mr. Money In The Bank Baron Corbin vs. Sami Zayn
