SmackDown general manager Paige kicked off the show, surrounded by Naomi, Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch and Lana, all of whom will compete in the Money in the Bank ladder match this Sunday night.
Paige admitted that she does not care who wins as long as the briefcase comes to SmackDown.
Charlotte and Lynch, two close friends, argued back and forth until Naomi casually reminded them that there are six other women in the match, too.
Billie Kay, Peyton Royce, Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville all interrupted the proceedings, and a brawl between the eight women erupted. An Eight-Woman Tag Team match was booked for the night’s main event.
Charlotte, Naomi, Becky Lynch and Lana were forced to band together and put their differences aside as they teamed with Asuka to battle SmackDown women’s champion Carmella, Mandy Rose, Sonya Deville, Peyton Royce and Billie Kay in a massive Eight-Woman Tag Team match to cap off Tuesday’s broadcast.
The heels isolated Lana and beat her down in the corner before a tag to Lynch sparked the babyfaces. That rush of energy was short-lived, as Royce and Kay took the fight to The Lass Kicker ahead of the break.
The heels continued to control the bout until Charlotte was able to break free and tag Asuka. The hot tag ignited chaos that included all of the competitors hitting the ring. Each delivered some form of trademark offense before Asuka and Carmella were left alone in the center of the ring.
