On tonight’s episode of SmackDown Live, another Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match will be held. Who can become the official Ms. Money in the Bank? Plus, Naomi faces Lana in a Women’s Championship rematch, and The Hype Bros face The Usos for the chance to become number one contenders for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship. SmackDown Live will air tonight at 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the USA Network. Check back in at 8 for match results and spoilers, and read on for a preview of the night’s events.
At Money in the Bank on June 18th, Carmella won the Women’s Ladder Match, but this was only because James Ellsworth interfered. As a result, Daniel Bryan declared the result invalid, stripping Carmella of her Money in the Bank contract and deciding that there would be a rematch on June 27th. Once again, the participants are Tamina, Natalya, Charlotte, Becky Lynch, and Carmella. So who will win this time? Might Carmella earn the contract again, but doing so by legitimate means this time? Will James Ellsworth again try to interfere?
Plus, at Money in the Bank last weekend, Naomi defeated Lana and retained her SmackDown Women’s Championship. But on the subsequent episode of SmackDown Live, Lana demanded a rematch. Although she isn’t owed one, Naomi decided to grant Lana that rematch, which will take place tonight on SmackDown Live. Will Naomi be able to hold on to her title once again? And since Rusev is rumored to be showing up on SmackDown Live soon, might he get involved in the match?
In addition, there will be a tag team match tonight between The Hype Bros and The Usos. The Hype Bros last fall became the number one contenders for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship, but unfortunately, Zack Ryder was legitimately injured during this match. He was subsequently taken off of television for months, only to return in June 2017. As soon as Ryder came back, he and Mojo Rawley asked Daniel Bryan for the shot at the title that they weren’t able to capitalize on last year, and although Bryan would not grant them this match, he did decide to give them an opportunity to become number one contenders again. So can The Hype Bros emerge victorious in this match against The Usos? Or have they missed their chance to become SmackDown Tag Team Champions?
Tonight’s episode of SmackDown Live will also feature a match between Sami Zayn and Baron Corbin. Corbin and Zayn have been feuding for weeks now, and Zayn was able to score a victory over Corbin at Backlash. However, at Money in the Bank, Baron Corbin was the one who scored the contract win and became Mr. Money in the Bank. Will Corbin be able to capitalize on his momentum and secure a victory against Sami Zayn this evening?
