LA Knight vs. Logan Paul vs. Santos Escobar – Men’s Money in the Bank qualifying match

The lead-up to WWE Money in the Bank continues on SmackDown. LA Knight, Logan Paul and Santos Escobar collide in a triple threat qualifier for the high-stakes match-up.

Knight and Escobar were involved in a physical altercation on SmackDown last Friday, which ended with a BFT to the “Emperor of Lucha Libre.” However, the distraction allowed Logan Paul to put away “The Megastar” with a stiff right hand.

Which of these three men will advance to Money in the Bank? We will find out on SmackDown.

Two women’s Money in the Bank qualifying matches

Tiffany Stratton versus Candice LeRae versus Jade Cargill is one of the two women’s Money in the Bank qualifying matches set for SmackDown this week. Can Jade take the lead after her tag team partner Bianca Belair lost her qualifying match last week on the blue brand?

Naomi will face Blair Davenport and Indi Hartwell in the other qualifying match of the night. Davenport and Naomi have had several tense conversations in the lead-up to tonight’s match.

WWE SmackDown acknowledges the “new” Bloodline

The WWE Universe bore witness to the arrival of one Jacob Fatu on SmackDown last Friday. The Samoan Werewolf took out Cody Rhodes, Kevin Owens and Randy Orton in what was a display of pure dominance. Fatu planted KO on the steel steps, put Orton through the barricade and crash-landed on Cody Rhodes through the announce table.

WWE announced that The Bloodline will have their acknowledgment ceremony on 6/28 SmackDown. Solo told Heyman last week that Roman Reigns isn’t coming back. Does this mean he’s looking to have himself acknowledged as the new “Tribal Chief?”

Wrestlezone’s live coverage of SmackDown begins at 8 pm ET.
