The first three wrestlers have qualified for this year's women's Money in the Bank ladder match.

Shayna Baszler, Nia Jax, and Asuka will be representing Raw in the ladder match. They each won a qualifying match on Raw tonight, with Baszler defeating Sarah Logan, Jax defeating Kairi Sane, and Asuka defeating Ruby Riott.

Baszler and Jax's wins tonight were both in squash matches. Baszler hit hammerfists to a grounded Logan and then stomped on her elbow before the match was stopped. Logan was originally announced as the winner, but the finish was then clarified and it was said that the ring announcer got it wrong.

Jax pinned Sane after hitting a press slam into a Samoan drop. WWE is calling the move the Annihilator.

Asuka got the win against Logan by submitting her with the Asuka Lock.

Money in the Bank is set for Sunday, May 10. The qualifying matches for the women's Money in the Bank ladder match will continue with Naomi vs. Dana Brooke taking place on SmackDown this Friday.

The qualifiers for the men's Money in the Bank ladder match haven't started yet. Daniel Bryan vs. Cesaro on this week's SmackDown will determine one of the participants for the match, while three qualifying matches have been announced for next Monday's Raw. Those qualifiers are: Rey Mysterio vs. Murphy, Aleister Black vs. Austin Theory, and Apollo Crews vs. MVP.
