Men’s Money in the Bank ladder match participants started the show

The show kicked off with Drew McIntyre, Riddle, Sami Zayn, Seth Rollins, and Sheamus perched on top of 5 ladders while Omos and MVP were standing inside the ring. Rollins said that whoever wins the Money in the Bank contract, the best place to cash in will be at SummerSlam where Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar will beat the hell out of each other.

Zayn said that he will protect the Tribal Chief from the “vultures” when he wins the Money in the Bank contract. MVP said that nobody has a chance against the 7-foot-3 giant Omos. Sheamus said that he already has the experience of winning the MITB contract and he previously cashed it in on the current WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns. Drew McIntyre stated that he defeated Brock Lesnar in under 5 minutes so he is the perfect guy to win the contract. The Miz, Ezekiel, Happy Corbin, and Madcap Moss came out to the ring one after the other and stated how they are the best fit to become Mr. Money in the Bank this year.

All men got involved in a war of words when Adam Pearce made his way to the stage area and announced a battle royal.

Good old-fashion battle royal

Sami Zayn almost eliminated Riddle once the match got underway but the former United States Champion saved himself. Ezekiel became the first person to be eliminated thanks to Omos.
