Building up that money. We’re less than a month away from Money in the Bank and that means it’s time to really start cranking things up. However, with the majority of the sixteen participants across the two matches already set, there’s only so much you can do in the meantime. There are still some matches to be set up, but at the same time we can at least build up a few other matches on the card. That’s what might be done this week on SmackDown Live.

What happened on last week’s show? Check out the full results right here. has released its official preview for this week’s SmackDown Live, which will be covering more building towards Money in the Bank. There will be two more qualifying matches taking place, but we’ll also find out which member of the New Day is going to be in the match after the team earned a spot for one member of the team. Finally, we’ll also be finding out what kind of stipulation Shinsuke Nakamura is picking for his upcoming match with WWE Champion AJ Styles. Here are the stories featured in this week’s preview.

Opinion: I’ll take what I can get with the qualifying matches instead of the matches going on for weeks for the sake of building momentum. Other than that we might have something interesting with Jeff Hardy vs. Daniel Bryan, though I’m not sure what they mean by implications. That doesn’t sound like a qualifying match, but maybe they’ll be put into another match later on. Either way, at least they’re giving us what should be a good match.
