Relive the best moves and moments from last week’s SmackDown
Daniel Bryan and Rusev will go head to head on SmackDown tonight in one of three qualifiers for Money In The Bank.
Bryan has been hugely active in WWE since being medically cleared to return to action after three years on the sidelines due to concussion injuries.
He will challenge for the right to compete in one of the ladder matches at Money In The Bank on June 17, in which whoever takes the briefcase will be entitled to a world title shot.
Also attempting to qualify on tonight’s SmackDown will be The Miz, who bids to recover from his failed Intercontinental title shot a Backlash with a match against United States champion Jeff Hardy.
In the women’s division, Charlotte Flair continues her path back to the SmackDown women’s championship with a Money In The Bank qualifier against one half of the IIconics, Peyton Royce.
Three Raw competitors have already booked their places at Money In The Bank by winning qualifiers on Monday night, with Finn Balor, Braun Strowman and Ember Moon all going through.
There was no decisive outcome in the match between Shinsuke Nakamura and AJ Styles for the WWE title at Backlash
Will Paige intervene in Nakamura-Styles rivalry?
The program between WWE champion AJ Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura did not reach a conclusion at Backlash, with both men unable to answer a 10-count after delivering mutual low blows.
The feud is becoming increasingly aggressive with neither man able to score a decisive victory over the other.
With the Money In the Bank pay-per-view more than five weeks away, SmackDown general manager Paige could be forced to intervene to settle the dispute before it gets even further out of hand.
