United States Champion Kevin Owens hosted his own version of the Highlight Reel and brought out his guest and fellow Money in the Bank match opponent, Shinsuke Nakamura. Owens reminded Nakamura of the last "rock star" he had to deal with when he ended Chris Jericho and said that Money in the Bank would be the day that the music died. Baron Corbin then interrupted and showed highlights of his destruction of Sami Zayn last week so Owens told him to get lost. Corbin then referred to Owens as "Cartman" just before Nakamura reminded Owens that he pinned him last week and that Sami beat Corbin twice in a row. Zayn then ran in to make the save as Nakamura was attacked by both Owens and Corbin. Sami suggested a tag match with he and Nakamura taking on Owens and Corbin right NOW.
1) Sami Zayn & Shinsuke Nakamura def. Baron Corbin & United States Champion Kevin Owens by pinfall in 11:11 when Nakamura pinned Owens with Kinshasa following some miscommunication with the heel team.
Tag Team Champions The Usos stood in the ring and cut a promo about how the people thought that American Alpha or Breezango would take their titles but they still stand tall as champions. They were then interrupted by the Smackdown debut of The New Day! The trio quickly made their desires known for the Smackdown Tag Team Titles and announced that Shane McMahon has made it official - The Usos will defend their titles against the New Day at Money in the Bank.
A lengthy video package highlighted the recent successful run of Jinder Mahal as he picked up wins, won the WWE Championship and had his Punjabi Celebration last week.
Another edition of the Fashion Files was shown with Fandango doing a film noir parody of The Man Who Knew Too Much. Tyler Breeze was "still undercover" and the duo had found their next case.
The five-way elimination women's match didn't even get a chance to start as all the women brawled all over the ring and outside the ring, culminating in Charlotte powerbombing Nattie through the announce table. Shane then came out and announced that there would be a rematch in the first-ever Women's Money in the Bank Ladder Match.
2) Breezango def. The Colons by pinfall in 8:03 when Breeze (dressed as "Carl the Janitor") got the pinfall following the Unprettier.
AJ Styles cut a promo on facing Dolph Ziggler later tonight. Ziggler interrupted to offer his own promo in response.
Randy Orton came out to cut a promo on facing WWE Champion Jinder Mahal at Money in the Bank. He talked a lot about his family legacy and then wrapped it up but he was interrupted by Mahal's music and the champion appeared on the big screen alongside the Singh Brothers to cut a promo of his own.
3) Dolph Ziggler def. AJ Styles by pinfall in 11:52 when he hit the superkick while Styles was tied up in the ropes.
