SmackDown kicks off with the wrestlers involved in the men’s Money in the Bank ladder match all sitting on top of ladders inside of the ring, except for Omos who stands down on the mat. Rollins welcomes the Phoenix, Arizona crowd to SmackDown. Rollins alludes to the upcoming match, where he says that whoever wins should cash in at SummerSlam when Lesnar and Reigns compete in a Last Man Standing match. Riddle interrupts Rollins to insult Roman Reigns as Sami Zayn gets defensive and says that he is in the match to win it for the Bloodline to ensure that Reigns’ championship will be safe. MVP speaks on behalf of Omos to remind everyone that Omos is the odd-on favorite. Sheamus then says that he has already won and cashed in on Roman Reigns. McIntyre then brings up how he’s beaten Lesnar before.
The men in the ring are then interrupted by The Miz who comes out to the ring. Miz reminds McIntyre that he cashed in on Drew McIntyre. Elias’ brother Ezekiel then makes his way out to make his case to be in the ladder match, and then Happy Corbin comes out to do the same, and then Madcap Moss comes out and makes a joke about Corbin embarrassing himself by cashing in again. Everyone out there begins to argue incoherently before Adam Pearce comes out to announce a battle royal with every wrestler out there.
The newly-announced battle royal match begins with several wrestlers going after Omos in the middle of the ring. McIntyre throws Miz over the top but Miz rakes the eyes to avoid elimination as he hangs on the apron. Omos throws Ezekiel over the top rope to eliminate him from the match. Madcap Moss then goes after Omos and Omos eliminates Moss and The Miz tries to sneak up from behind and Omos eliminates the Miz too. Omos and McIntyre lock up in the middle of the ring.

Omos stares down Seth Rollins, Rollins looks up at the briefcase, laughs and then hops over the top rope to eliminate himself. Riddle, McIntyre and Sheamus all team up to eliminate Omos from the match.
The battle royal continues live with Riddle avoiding elimination on the ring apron.
