Lacey Evans qualified for the women’s Money in the Bank ladder match on tonight's SmackDown, while the first men’s qualifying match ended without a winner.
Evans defeated Xia Li on tonight’s SmackDown to qualify. A second qualifying match, Sheamus vs. Drew McIntyre for a spot in the men's ladder match, ended in a double count out after the two brawled outside of the ring. Later in the show both McIntyre and Sheamus complained about the result to WWE official Adam Pearce. However, a follow up regarding both McIntyre and Sheamus’ status for Money in the Bank never materialized.
The winners of the men’s and women’s Money in the Bank match will receive a briefcase with a title match that can be cashed in at any time during the next year. Last year’s winners were Big E and Nikki A.S.H., both of whom were successful in winning their championship match.
Here is the current lineup for Money in the Bank, which takes place July 2 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas:
- Bianca Belair vs. Rhea Ripley for the Raw Women’s Championship
- Ronda Rousey vs. Natalya for the SmackDown Women’s Championship
- Women’s Money in the Bank ladder match, with Lacey Evans qualifying
