Carmella qualified for the women's ladder match by defeating Mandy Rose on SmackDown tonight. For the men's ladder match, Otis qualified by defeating Dolph Ziggler.

Sonya Deville appeared on the stage during the women's qualifying match and tried to distract Rose. When Deville went to come down to the ring, Rose was distracted and Carmella hit her with a superkick to get the win. Deville then laid out Rose after the match.

All six participants for the women's Money in the Bank ladder match have been confirmed. Shayna Baszler, Asuka, Nia Jax, Dana Brooke, Lacey Evans, and Carmella will be in the match.

Five of the six participants for the men's Money in the Bank ladder match are set: Aleister Black, Rey Mysterio, Daniel Bryan, Baron Corbin, and Otis. The final participant will be determined by a last chance gauntlet match that's airing on Monday's Raw.
