Renee Young interviewed Shinsuke Nakamura backstage regarding the recent events between himself and AJ Styles. This was in retaliation for Woods pinning Sheamus last week.

Bodyslam - Neither Styles nor Nakamura are cleared to compete tonight, but the wound on Styles' face really sells it. It was also confirmed that there will be four RAW Superstars and four SmackDown Superstars in each match.

Charlotte Flair has become just the second name to qualify for the upcoming women's Money in the Bank ladder match, defeating Peyton Royce in a great back-and-forth match tonight on Smackdown Live. As I said, Rusev deserves the spot, and he'll be a good fit alongside the other ladder match participants, and the promise of him winning will surely get the PPV crowd fired up.

Of course, the ex-RAW Women's Champion's task won't be easy as Royce will be backed by her fellow IIconics member Billie Kay.

Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville were in the middle of plotting their dirty deeds pre-match when Paige approached them and put her foot down about the end of Absolution by barring Sonya from ringside.

So if you've seen an advertisement for Money In The Bank featuring three briefcases, it might or might not be legit.

Two of WWE's most popular stars faced off in the main event of Smackdown Live this week.

Early on, Rusev man-handled Bryan and caught him off the Suicide Dive, throwing him across Smackdown's announce table. But one thing seems to be for sure and that's the fact that WWE still has a very big announcement planned for the tag team division at Money In The Bank. It could lead to something bigger between the two and it was a surprise we did not Big Cass make an appearance after losing to Bryan at Backlash.

The Destroyer, however, lost to Roman Reigns last Sunday and is not going to Smackdown with the desired momentum. It begs the question, where does Bryan go from here?
