Tonight, WWE Smackdown Live comes to the Philips Arena in Atlanta, GA. The Smackdown brand is moving towards Money in the Bank, which takes place on June 18th, and tonight we’ll find out who will be challenging Naomi for the Smackdown Women’s Championship at Money in the Bank.
There’s going to be a five-way elimination match tonight on Smackdown between Charlotte, Natalya, Carmella, Tamina, and Becky Lynch. The winner will head to Money in the Bank to take on Naomi.
Meanwhile, AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Baron Corbin, and Dolph Ziggler are all on a collision course as the six men who will compete in the Money in the Bank Ladder match. Last week Styles and Nakamura teamed up to defeat Owens and Ziggler, but in just under three weeks there will be no place for friendship when a guaranteed shot at the WWE Championship is on the line. What’s going to happen between these six superstars tonight?
Last week saw the coronation of Jinder Mahal as WWE Champion, and now the champion is poised to defend his title against former champion Randy Orton at Money in the Bank. The Viper is ready to strike though, so might Orton get some revenge on Mahal ahead of Money in the Bank?
Smackdown airs tonight at 7pm CT on USA Network.
