TOLEDO, Ohio — SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon kicked off the proceedings this week by announcing the loaded lineup for this year’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match:
- AJ Styles
- Baron Corbin
- Sami Zayn
- Dolph Ziggler
- Shinsuke Nakamura
- Kevin Owens (added to the match by Shane McMahon after petitioning or running his mouth, depending on how you want to view it)
However, that announcement was only the beginning, as tensions immediately rose between all six combatants with disrespect soaring through the air just like the Superstars will be in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match itself. Shane-O-Mac implemented some problem-solving, though, and made two major matchups for tonight: AJ Styles & WWE’s Rockstar, Shinsuke Nakamura, teaming up to take on Dolph Ziggler & Kevin Owens and, in a WWE Backlash rematch, Sami Zayn vs. Baron Corbin.
