Four MITB Qualifiers Scheduled for June 9 SmackDown

In an exhilarating update for WWE enthusiasts, WWE recently disclosed the line-up of four Money in the Bank qualifying matches for next week's episode of "WWE SmackDown." Fans are already waiting with bated breath for these matches, eagerly anticipating the results.

Two qualifying matches will take place on the men's side. Butch from The Brawling Brutes will face off against Baron Corbin, while Santos Escobar from The LWO will compete against Mustafa Ali. These contests will determine two additional participants for the coveted Men's Money in the Bank ladder match, where they will join the ranks of Ricochet, Shinsuke Nakamura, and LA Knight, who have already secured their spots.

Matt Riddle's candidacy for the final entrant spot was hinted at on last week's WWE Raw. Following a backstage face-off with Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER, a qualifying match for Riddle was suggested, raising excitement and speculation amongst the fans.

Despite the anticipation, WWE has yet to affirm this qualifying match officially.

Damage CTRL Stars in SmackDown

On the women's front, two members from Damage CTRL will be in action in next week's SmackDown. IYO SKY will contend against Shotzi, while Bayley will match up against Mia "Michin" Yim.

Both matches are expected to be action-packed events, setting the stage for the upcoming ladder match. So far, Zelina Vega is the sole confirmed participant in the Women's Money in the Bank ladder match, having clinched her spot through a victory over Lacey Evans on Friday.

Additional participants will be determined in next week's Raw, featuring qualifiers between Becky Lynch, Sonya Deville, and Zoey Stark versus Natalya. By next weekend, the entire roster for the women's ladder match is projected to be settled.

The Men's and Women's Money in the Bank ladder matches, a significant highlight of the WWE calendar, are slated to take place at the prestigious 02 Arena in London on July 1. Currently, these matches are the only ones confirmed for WWE's upcoming premium live event, promising an exciting line-up with WWE fans on the edge of their seats.
