Women’s Money In The Bank Qualifying Match
Becky Lynch vs. Sonya Deville

After the opener wraps up, Corey Graves and Kevin Patrick run down the advertised lineup for tonight’s show and then the familiar sounds of Becky Lynch’s theme hits. Out comes “The Man” to kick things off inside the ring on this week’s show.

As “Big Time Becks” settles inside the squared circle, we head to a pre-match commercial break. When we return from the break, we see Lynch settled into the ring when her music cuts off.

The theme for her opponent plays and out comes Sonya Deville accompanied by her Complaint Department tag-team partner, Chelsea Green.. Deville settles in the ring and the bell sounds to get this one off-and-running.

Lynch looks for her Man-Handle Slam early on, but Deville avoids it and starts to take over on offense. The commentators talk about the WWE Money In The Bank pay-per-view coming to the O2 Arena in London, England this July.

As Becky starts to fight into the offensive lead, out of nowhere we hear the theme song for Trish Stratus. As the WWE Hall of Fame legend distracts Lynch, we head to a mid-match commercial break as the action continues in this women’s MITB qualifier.

When we return, we see Trish and Zoey Stark still standing at the top of the entrance ramp while Deville beats down Lynch in the ring. She takes Becky to the top rope and connects with a super-plex for a close near fall. We see Chelsea Green watching on from ringside as well.

Becky starts to fire back up but Green gets involved at ringside, hitting a pump kick on Lynch on the floor and then rolling her into the ring, where Deville immediately covers her. Lynch kicks out and the match continues.

The action continues with Green once again trying to get involved at ringside. This time, however, Lynch bounces Green and Deville off the barricade over and over again. Back in the ring, Lynch finishes Deville off for the win to qualify for the women’s Money In The Bank. After the match, we head to another commercial break.

Winner and QUALIFYING for Women’s Money In The Bank: Becky Lynch

Women’s Money In The Bank Qualifying Match
Zoey Stark vs. Natalya

After we see highlights of the Seth Rollins and Damian Priest segment from earlier in the show, we see Priest working out live backstage as he prepares for tonight’s WWE World Heavyweight Championship main event.

Now we shoot back inside the XL Center where Trish Stratus’ theme hits. Out comes the WWE Hall of Fame legend, who stops. Her music dies down and then the theme for Zoey Stark plays and out she comes.

The two head to the ring for our second of two Women’s Money In The Bank qualifying matches scheduled for tonight’s show. As she settles inside the squared circle, we head to another commercial break.

When we return from the break, we hear the sounds of the legendary Hart family guitar screech as Natalya makes her way out. The women’s wrestling legend heads to the ring and settles inside.

From there, the bell sounds and we’re officially off-and-running with this one. Nattie controls Stark early on, taking her to the mat and schooling her with some mat-based grappling skills. We see Trish watching on from ringside.

Nattie sells her knee early on. Trish points this out and shouts instructions to Zoey and then we see the newcomer from NXT start to focus her offensive attack on the lower limb of the women’s wrestling legend.

We see Zoey dominate the offense for a few minutes and then Nattie manages to slap her Sharpshooter finisher on her. Stark screams in pain but eventually crawls to the ropes, forcing the referee to break the hold.

Now we see Trish sneak in a cheap shot, kicking the weakened knee of Nattie. Back in the ring, Stark hits her Z-360 finisher and score the pin fall victory. With the win, she qualifies for the Women’s Money In The Bank match.

Winner and QUALIFYING for Women’s Money In The Bank: Zoey Stark
