WWE SMACKDOWN REPORT: THE FUTURE OF THE BRIEFCASE, WELCOME BACK DANIEL, KEVIN OWENS LOVES AMERICA, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2017-06-20 21:57:00

We are back and Kevin Owens makes his way to the ring.

He says the only reason he does not have the Money in the Bank briefcase is because the other five men conspired against him because they knew he was the best man in the match.  That was an injustice.  He is in the ring tonight, unbroken, the New Face of America, and your United States Champion.  Kevin says Shane McMahon loves to say that Smackdown is the land of opportunity.  Kevin says the United States was the original land of opportunity.  Kevin says it is his job to make Smackdown the Land of Opportunity.  He will give someone from Dayton a chance at his title. 

AJ Styles makes his way out.  AJ says it is unfortunate for Kevin Owens.  What is better than being United States Champion is beating you for the United States Championship. 

Kevin says AJ is the typical rude American sticking his nose where he does not belong.  This match is against someone from Dayton.

Chad Gable makes his way to the ring.

Kevin says Chad isn't from Dayton. 

Chad says he is here to answer Kevin's challenge.  He says he just moved to Dayton.

Kevin asks Chad for his address and AJ says he knows that place.

We are back and Daniel Bryan makes his way to the ring.

Daniel says it is great to be back.  They just had the first Women's Money in the Bank Ladder Match.  They have been meeting for the last few days and he has been told to take his emotions out of it and he has to follow the WWE Rule Book.

Daniel brings out the five women who were part of the Money in the Bank Ladder Match.

Carmella comes to the ring with her bag and her personal luggage James Ellsworth.

Daniel says his decision involves all of them and he says Carmella has some valid points.  It is a no disqualification match and the rules say that you can have someone else climb the ladder and unhook the briefcase.  It says the first woman to hold the briefcase wins the match.

Daniel mentions interference in other Money in the Bank matches.  There has never ever been someone who has climbed the ladder, unhooked the briefcase, and hand it to someone else.

James wants to know what got into Daniel.  Being a daddy to a vegan hippie baby has gotten him soft.

Daniel tells James if he talks about his baby again, he will punch him in the face and fire him.

Everyone starts to talk but they all get cut off by someone else.

Daniel says everyone needs to calm down.  On Sunday, you competed in the first Women's Money in the Bank Ladder Match.  Carmella is the first woman to have to turn over the Money in the Bank briefcase.  Daniel will not let someone like Ellsworth interrupt one of the most important moment in Women's Wrestling.  They will do the match again next week on Smackdown.
