-We open the show with Shane coming down to the ring which is full of the women's division. Shane talks about the women's money in the bank match and the six woman tag match before unveiling the money in the bank briefcase which is a plain gold as opposed to the blue or green the guys have. Each woman says they're going to win before Lana comes out to the ring. Lana says that she wants in the match before Naomi laughs and mocks her before Lana says she can beat her. Lana wants a title shot, but Shane refuses, then she leaves before we go to commercial.
Charlotte, Naomi & Becky Lynch vs Natalya, Carmella & Tamina
Charlotte and Natalya start it off with Charlotte in control, backing her into their corner and tagging in Becky. Natalya tags in Carmella before Becky rolls her around the ring like Liv Morgan. Carmella sends Becky to the floor before Natalya clotheslines as we go to commercial.
Natalya backs Becky into her corner as we come back from commercial, Natalya quickly tagging in Tamina who beats on Becky before putting her in a headlock that she's quick to get out of. Tamina drops her again and gets a quick two count before tagging Natalya back in, Natalya smashing her face into the mat repeatedly before hitting a falcon arrow for a near fall. Natalya tags in Carmella who knocks Charlotte off of the apron before Becky tags in Naomi who takes out Carmella. Everyone gets in the ring as Lana comes back to ringside before she distracts Naomi, then yanks her feet out from under her. Once she recovers Tamina drops her with a lariat for the pin and the win.
Winner: Natalya, Carmella & Tamina via pinfall

They exchange right hands before AJ drops Dolph with a clothesline, then Dolph counters an ushigaroshi into a famouser for a near fall. Dolph sets AJ on the top rope before AJ counters when he goes for a superplex, then AJ hits The Styles Clash for the pin and the win after Dolph counters The Phenomenal Forearm twice.
