- We found out the final two participants from SmackDown for this year's Money In The Bank Ladder Matches.
Daniel Bryan kicked off SmackDown and said that he was excited for the Money in the Bank match that will take place on the many floors of the WWE Headquarters. He had hoped that Drew Gulak would be able to accompany him in the match but last week thanks to Baron Corbin, he was injured. He called Corbin out and The King said Daniel should be careful what he wishes for before they agreed on a match.
Daniel Bryan vs. King Corbin
Bryan got some offense in right away but Corbin managed to grapple him onto the mat, slowing things down. Corbin continued his onslaught and maintained control of the match as he sent Bryan into the steel ring post.
Bryan turned things around with a dive to the outside and then a missile dropkick in the ring before locking in the ankle lock. Corbin headed outside and as Bryan followed him, Baron sent a ladder into Bryan's face, earning a disqualification.
