Shane McMahon, Becky Lynch, Carmella, Charlotte Flair, Tamina, Natalya, Naomi and Lana In-Ring Segment:
What’s up Rochester? It’s Shane’s honor and privilege to introduce the participants in the first ever Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match. Shane reveals the briefcase for this historic match. It’s a white mixed with green briefcase. The question is which superstar will have this briefcase in hand on June 18th. This match is very dangerous and each women will leave a piece of them. The winner will get an opportunity at the SmackDown Women’s Championship any time and any place. History has shown that the winner’s have ultimately became the champion. Ellsworth doesn’t want Shane to explain what goes behind the Money in the Bank Ladder Match. Carmella says that she’s going to be the only woman who will be standing at the top of the ladder while looking down at the four other stunad’s.
Charlotte interrupts Carmella. The queen has something to say. We all know that Charlotte is more genetically superior to any woman in this match. Charlotte will indeed add on to her legacy, WOOO! Natalya can’t stand Charlotte ripping off her father. This is Natalya’s moment. Becky says that the only thing Natalya is the best at is ripping off her uncle. Becky want’s to break everybody’s arm while she becomes the very first Ms. Money in the Bank. Tamina is going to shut up everybody in St. Louis. Naomi comes down to the ring.
Naomi wishes she can be part of this match because she knows it’s going to be LIT. Whoever wins this contract will have to face Naomi and she’s ready. Lana finally makes her debut on the SmackDown Live Roster. SmackDown is all about the land of opportunity, but this is not the right time. What works for Lana will work for Shane. Naomi can’t compete in this match, but she can. All the women in the ring are laughing at Lana. Naomi calls Lana Bugs Bunny. Does Lana really think she can handle a Ladder Match? Who has Lana ever beat? Naomi will be waiting. Lana says that she can beat Naomi. Lana and Naomi talks smack at each other. Without all due respect, the SD Money in the Bank Ladder Match is something Lana has to earn. Lana snaps and exit’s the ring. Shane says that it’s time for action. We have ourself a six woman tag team match coming up next.
