The SmackDown Women's Championship will be on the line at Money in the Bank next month.

WWE has announced that Bayley will defend her SmackDown Women's title against Tamina at the pay-per-view. Tamina getting the title shot was a stipulation of her defeating Sasha Banks on SmackDown tonight.

In storyline, Bayley volunteered Banks for the match against Tamina and Banks didn't appear to be happy about it last week. Bayley distracted Tamina during the match and went to attack her with a shoe, but Lacey Evans ran down and laid Bayley out. Tamina pinned Banks after hitting a superkick.

Banks and Evans will face off on SmackDown next Friday, with the winner qualifying for the women's Money in the Bank ladder match. The men's and women's ladder matches are both taking place at WWE headquarters.

Money in the Bank is set for Sunday, May 10. Here's the updated card for the PPV:

  • Women's Money in the Bank ladder match (Shayna Baszler, Asuka, Nia Jax, and Dana Brooke have qualified thus far)
  • Men's Money in the Bank ladder match (Daniel Bryan is the first wrestler to qualify)
  • Universal Champion Braun Strowman defending against Bray Wyatt
  • SmackDown Women's Champion Bayley defending against Tamina
