A new segment has been announced for tonight's edition of SmackDown.

Ahead of Money in the Bank, Drew McIntyre will appear on SmackDown tonight and "explain the path he will take to claim the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship." McIntyre will be one of the participants in the men's Money in the Bank ladder match at the Saturday, July 2 pay-per-view.

"After a double disqualification in a brutal Money in the Bank Qualifying Match, WWE Official Adam Pearce ruled that both Drew McIntyre and Sheamus will compete for the coveted Money in the Bank contract," WWE wrote.

"Tonight, The SmackDown Warrior will explain the path he will take to claim the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. Don’t miss Friday Night SmackDown at 8/7 C on FOX."

McIntyre, Sheamus, Seth Rollins, and Omos have already qualified for the men's Money in the Bank ladder match. A qualifying match between Sami Zayn and Shinsuke Nakamura is set for tonight's SmackDown.

Earlier this month, McIntyre issued a challenge to Roman Reigns for an Undisputed WWE Universal Championship match at Clash at the Castle this September. The event will be WWE's first major PPV to take place in the United Kingdom in 30 years.
