As WWE returned to London’s O2 Arena for their second straight night of television tapings, AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura faced off in the main event.
Nakamura won the non-title match and will now pick the stipulation for when he challenges for the WWE Championship at Money in the Bank. Near the finish, Nakamura faked like Styles hit him with a low blow while the referee wasn’t looking, then capitalized on the distraction by hitting a reverse exploder and the Kinshasa for the win.
There were also two Money in the Bank qualifiers. Becky Lynch joined the lineup for the women’s ladder match by beating Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville, while a member of The New Day will be added to the men’s match after they beat Cesaro & Sheamus.
Also on SmackDown, Daniel Bryan opened the show and beat down Big Cass, Women’s Champion Carmella vs. Asuka was announced for Money in the Bank, and Andrade “Cien” Almas and Zelina Vega made their debuts.
