Now Smackdown General Manager Paige says the match with Samoa Joe and Big Cass has been replaced by Daniel Bryan and Jeff Hardy. The winner will go on to face Samoa Joe next week. 

Both Hardy and Bryan lost qualifying matches in the past few weeks. Hardy lost to the Miz and Bryan lost to Rusev. Samoa Joe has never been in a Money in the Bank match but both Hardy and Bryan have been participants in the past. Bryan won the briefcase in 2011.
