By Richard Trionfo on 2017-06-06 21:58:00

We start off with a look back at what was supposed to be the number one contender match for the Women's Title, but it would not happen and we got the announcement of the first Women's Money in the Bank Ladder Match.

We are in Rochester, New York and your announcers are Tom Phillips, Byron Saxton, and John Layfield.

Shane McMahon makes his way to the ring as only Shane McMahon can.  As he makes his way to the ring, we see the five women who will be in the Money in the Bank match and James Ellsworth.

There is a table that is waiting for something special to be added.

Shane welcomes everyone and he introduces the women in the Money in the Bank Ladder Match.  

Shane says that he has something to reveal and he wants a drum roll as a briefcase is lowered onto the table.  Shane removes the cover to the case.

Shane asks who will be holding this briefcase on June 18th.  Shane says this match will be dangerous and everyone leaves a piece of themselves, physically or emotionally.  With great risk, there is great reward.  Inside the briefcase, there is a guaranteed shot at the Smackdown Women's Champion any time and any place.  Shane says that whoever cashes in in the past has gone on to be the champion.

Ellsworth interrupts and says you don't have to explain how the match works. We know what will happen in the match.

Carmella says there will be one chick standing on top of the ladder looking down on all of you.  It will be her.  

Charlotte interrupts and thanks Shane on behalf of her four opponents for allowing them to brush up with greatness.  She says she is more genetically superior than everyone.

Natalya tells Charlotte to stop ripping off her father.  Natalya says this is her moment and she rips off her uncle.

Becky points out that Natalya is ripping off her uncle.  Becky says she rips off arms and she will do it on her way to winning.

Tamina says that you all talk, but in St. Louis, she will take that and shut you all up.

Naomi's music plays as the lights go out and she makes her way to the ring.

Naomi says she had to come out and say as much as she loves being the Women's Champion, she wishes she could be in the match.  This match will be historic and whoever wins will have to face her.  

Lana's music plays and she makes her way to the ring.

Shane says this is about the Land of Opportunity but this is not the right time and this is not working for him.

Lana says what works for her, she will make work for him.  Naomi cannot compete in the match, but she can.  

Naomi starts laughing at the idea of Lana being put in the match and Lana wants to know what is so funny.

Naomi asks if Lana can hang in this Money in the Bank ladder match.  She says Lana hasn't had a singles match yet.  Naomi asks Lana who has she beaten and she hums the Jeopardy theme.

Lana says she can beat Naomi.

Naomi wants to go.

Shane says you need to earn a Smackdown Women's Title Match.

Lana storms out of the ring.

Shane says the Six Woman Match is next.

We go to commercial.
