In-Ring Segment: Drew McIntyre

McIntyre says when he first came to SmackDown he said he had no problem starting from the bottom and working his way to a title shot. No matter how many matches he wins, or moments he makes he still hasn’t gotten a shot. Their Tribal Champion has been ducking him. So he’s going to win Money in the Bank to solve that problem. No matter who wins at SummerSlam, Lesnar or Reigns, whoever manages to get to their feet, they are going on a one-way trip to Claymore Country. Sheamus and his buddies interrupt. Sheamus says McIntyre doesn’t belong in the MITB Match. McIntyre has never won one, but Sheamus has and he cashed in on none other than Roman Reigns. Paul Heyman and Adam Pearce walk out on the stage.

Heyman plugs the last man standing match at SummerSlam. He promises the victor of the match will be Roman Reigns. After the last-man-standing match, Reigns will be vulnerable. Heyman is here to make sure no one can take advantage of it. Pearce says he may have been a bit hasty in putting them both in the MITB match. Due to pressure from Heyman WWE Managment has overturned Pearce’s ruling. They are both out of the MITB match. Sheamus calls Pearce spineless. Pearce announces Sheamus and McIntyre can earn their way in if they defeat Jimmy and Jey Uso tonight.

The New Day vs. Jinder Mahal and Shanky

Woods and Kingston say no one wants to see this match.

Ronda Rousey’s music hits. Natalya is dressed up as Rousey and pushing a baby carriage.

In-Ring Segment: Natalya

Natalya mocks Rousey and claims that she almost tapped out to the Sharpshooter last week. She realized that the Sharpshooter is much better than the armbar. She is just going to tap out right here right now. The best thing for her to do would be to just hand the SmackDown Women’s Championship to Natalya and leave while she can. She refers to herself as the “Saddest” Woman on the Planet.

Ronda Rousey inturupts. Rousey says she almost didn’t recognize Natalya without her tits out. They are nothing alike. Rousey would never mutilate her body to chase impossible industry beauty standards. The closest Natalya will ever come to being a star in the company is dressing up like her.
