The show kicks off with all five ladies that will be participating in tonight’s Fatal 5-Way elimination match to determine the new #1 contender to the WWE Smackdown Women’s Championship. They take turns telling the fans why they deserve to win, in pre-recorded videos.
#1 Contender’s Elimination Match
Charlotte vs. Becky Lynch vs. Natalya vs. Tamina Snuka vs. Carmella
A brawl starts out the match with all five women going after each other, and the action immediately spills to the floor. Becky goes flying off the barricade to take down Carmella in the timekeeper’s area. Snuka goes crazy and starts ripping apart the commentary table, throwing monitors everywhere. Charlotte takes her out from behind and hits a huge moonsault off the top turnbuckle, all the way to the floor to take down three of them. Carmella flies over the barricade with a splash on the Queen, but turns around into an Exploder Suplex from Becky. Natalya spears Charlotte and it’s absolute chaos, as the match technically hasn’t even started yet. Multiple referees come out and try to get control of the match, but it has zero effect. Natalya tries to put Charlotte through the commentary table, but the Queen throws her into the steel steps instead, then puts her through the table with a powerbomb. A loud “holy s—” chant erupts as all five women are down.
Shane McMahon comes out and applauds the women for creating an awesome moment for the fans. He says they all want to become #1 contender so badly, that this can’t end in just any match here tonight. And so, there will officially be a five-way Women’s Money in the Bank ladder match at the upcoming pay-per-view!
