An impromptu Good Old Fashioned Battle Royal took over SmackDown and featured established Men’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match combatants Riddle, Seth “Freakin” Rollins, Sheamus, Sami Zayn, Omos and Drew McIntyre. The match also included Ladder Match hopefuls The Miz, Madcap Moss, Happy Corbin and Ezekiel, each of whom had their eyes on the final spot in the high-stakes showdown for the coveted Money in the Bank contract.
