**********

Daniel Bryan made his way down to the ring. He noted that in nine days, he competes in the most unique Money In The Bank ladder match in history. This year the match isn't taking place in the ring but at WWE Headquarters. Bryan pointed out that all competitors are going to climb to the top of WWE headquarters to retrieve the Money In The Bank briefcase. 

Bryan noted he wrestled in strange places but never in an office. Bryan wondered about the rules and asked about taking the elevator to the top. Bryan pointed out that he won the briefcase before and cashed it in on The Big Show to win the World Championship. 

Bryan is excited to compete at Money In The Bank, but he's sad. Bryan was hoping to compete against Drew Gulak, but that's not happening because of King Corbin. Bryan demanded Corbin come out for their match. 

King Corbin walked out onto the ramp. Corbin showed footage of Corbin defeating Gulak with Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura's help last week. Corbin promised he's going to stand tall on the ladder on top of WWE Headquarters and will look down on Bryan.

Bryan noted that Corbin won Money In The Bank before, but Corbin failed when he cashed it in. Bryan pointed out that Corbin is only one of four winners to fail at the cash in. Corbin said he's stronger then he was before and promised to win at Money In The Bank.

Braun Strowman Promo

Strowman noted last week they looked at his time with The Wyatt Family. Before Strowman could continue, The Firefly Funhouse interrupted. Bray Wyatt has a special story to read called The Black Sheep. 

In the story, a shepherd saw a black sheep wandering alone. The shepherd brought the black sheep home and raised the sheep. They had a great time together until the black sheep left the shepherd. The shepherd was devastated and lost everything. The story fell apart at the end because the government took the shepherds land, and reptilians showed up. 

Wyatt didn't like the sad ending, but he can change it. He continued with the story and said the shepherd takes the black sheep to the slaughterhouse, but Strowman interrupted. Strowman's finished with the puppets and Firefly Funhouse. He challenged Wyatt to come to the ring. Wyatt just waved goodbye, and Strowman stood in the ring.
