Men's Money in the Bank
Our pre-show is underway, initially with a panel of Jonathan Coachman, Sam Roberts, Charly Caruso and David Otunga. We begin with a quick run-down of tonight's card before moving to an interview with Becky Lynch. She says that tonight, she evens the odds, showing Lacey what Charlotte already knows, 'The Man' is hard to beat when the pressure is on. While Becky could duck or dodge, she's here to make her title reigns meaningful, not plentiful. Tonight, the double-champ dishes out double-beatings.
In response, Lacey Evans says that Lynch is like trash, the longer it sits, the longer it rots. Tonight, Becky ends up in the bin and Evans takes her belt, just like Flair will later.
A preview of the WWE Title match followed, Kevin Owens says it's simply of how he wants to win tonight. Either way, he ends Kofi Kingston's dream and gives him a reality check. He says Kofi is a great role model and as a result, should leave Woods backstage tonight.
Selfie promo time next as Nikki Cross says that she's giving Alexa a chance. While it upsets her that Bliss can't compete tonight, she has to make the most of her opportunity. Following that, Beth Phoenix and Sonya Deville joined the panel. Zelina Vega soon interrupted, dismissing Deville and constantly bickering with her from there.
Daniel Bryan and Rowan vs. The Usos
The Usos cut a pre-match promo here, calling their opponents "Spongebob and Patrick" and getting fans fired up. Once the bell rung, Jimmy and Bryan got this one underway, with the RAW team building momentum early until Rowan tackled Jey to the mat in an instant. He then slowed things down, grabbing a hold in center ring. Bryan then joined in on the act, landing his patented corner dropkicks but then running into a Samoan Drop. Jey then avoided Rowan too, tagging in Jimmy and allowing him to run wild on the big man.
Rowan then turned the tide though, landing Jackhammer out of nowhere before heading up top to superplex both. That allowed Bryan's entry, trading strikes with Jey before falling victim to a Superkick. He avoided The Uso Splash though, catching LeBell Lock until Jimmy broke it up. Both then combined, wiping out Rowan and closing the show via Double Uce on the former WWE Champion.
Winners: The Usos
Women's Money in the Bank
A brawl got this one underway, with Cross retrieving a ladder and flooring a group of foes right away. Ember and Dana then took control, with the former spearing her foe as Cross grabbed a sleeperhold. She was slammed free for her troubles, with Rose then running up the ladder for a big knee. Carmella then removed her but Natalya came in too, with Naomi soon flurrying regardless. Bayley and Rose then met in center ring but Carmella soon stood alone, landing a superkick but being cut off by Mandy.
Ember was swiftly back on top either way, will all the women then grabbing ladders as Naomi used them as her own mini-obstacle course, taking out all involved until Natalya cut her off. Brooke and Ember then clashed, with the former coming out on top until Bayley rallied in response. She then had a chance to climb the ladder but Rose halted those plans, combining with Natalya to sandwich her in the middle. Split-legged moonsault followed and after a wild race, only Brooke remained.
She positioned the ladder but Rose met her at the top. Brooke hung from the briefcase in response and others scrambled up the ladder themselves. Natalya took them out though, turning into an Eclipse as Moon was then taken out by Rose. Carmella then returned, halting Rose and leaving her laying on the ramp-way. She then looked to climb the ladder herself but Deville stopped her, yanking Carmella's leg and landing a spear. Sonya then sent Rose back in, hoping she'd climb the ladder for the win.
Instead, Deville had to carry Rose up the ladder but Bayley cut them off, pushing both down and taking the briefcase.
In her post-match interview, Bayley said that she's on SmackDown to prove a point. Tonight, she showed she's not just Bayley, she's Ms Money in the Bank.
- Elsewhere, Triple H spoke on the phone as Sami Zayn looked for Shane McMahon. He told Helmsley that he can't prepare due to Strowman's antics but was told to calm down as Braun has been banned from the building. Helmsley refused to offer Zayn protection though.
WWE United States Title
Rey Mysterio vs. Samoa Joe (C)
The champion went to work with strikes right away, flooring his foe but then being stunned by a hurricanrana. Seated Senton followed but Joe fired back, landing a sudden chop until out of nowhere, Rey countered a power-bomb for the roll-up win. It seemed Joe had his left shoulder up though.
Winner and NEW US Champion: Rey Mysterio
Post-match, Dominic came down to celebrate with Rey but Joe halted them, assaulting Mysterio and then focusing on his son. While staring Dominic down, Joe launched Rey to the mat. daring him to enter as he landed a senton. Joe then bailed, proud of his handywork.
- Elsewhere, Braun went to work, destroying the backstage area in his hunt for Sami Zayn.
Shane McMahon vs. The Miz
'The Best in the World' immediately looked to escape, being dragged back to center ring as he looked for nothing but safety. Miz dominated instead though, running wild until Shane caught his kick and power-bombed him into the cage. McMahon was now in control, landing an array of strikes and launching his foe into the fence. Coast to Coast was his next plan but Miz caught him, applying the Figure 4 Leglock. Shane scurried to the door in response, kicking free but being dragged back in by Miz.
McMahon brought a chair with him, being cut off as Miz took the chair instead. He made his foe pay, unleashing an assault with the chair and then hitting Skull Crushing Finale on it too. McMahon got his foot on the bottom rope though and the referee incorrectly stopped his count. A Super Skull Crushing Finale was his next thought but McMahon barely fought free. He then began to climb but Miz used a chair to cut him off, heading up as a brawl commenced.
Miz came out on top, yanking McMahon off the top and hitting a splash for 2. Shane fired back, catching the triangle choke. He then looked to escape through the door but Miz halted him again, forcing McMahon up and thinking superplex. However, McMahon slid free of his shirt, falling to the floor and scoring the win.
Winner: Shane McMahon
Backstage, Triple H and others found Sami Zayn hanging by his feet.
