Welcome to SmackDown Live.
We are in London, England and your announcers are Tom Phillips, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves.
Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring.

Miz thanks Roman for the invite and he says it is good to be back in London and good to be back in blue. Today could be the day that you and I beat Elias through and through. Miz says he must not be a good singer, just like Elias. Five days until Shane cannot run or hide.

Shane says just because the Big Dog invited you, it doesn’t make you the wild card. Shane says that Miz disgusts him and Shane will invoke his privilege and he will ban Miz from the ring and building.

He will prove why Vince chose him as the biggest acquisition in Smackdown history. You will see what the McMahon found out . . . that WWE stands for Walk With Elias.

Elias, Daniel Bryan, and Rowan argue with Shane about what just happened. Shane says they will take on Roman Reigns and the Usos. If Miz comes anywhere near the match, the cage match on Sunday is off.
Randy Orton says on Sunday, he is going to climb this ladder, grab the briefcase and become Mr. Money in the Bank for the second time. Then the three most dangerous letters for the WWE Champion will be R . . . K . . . O.
Zelina Vega says everyone is so sensitive when it comes to spoilers nowadays. It could be Game of Thrones, it could be Avengers: Endgame. They don’t care about spoilers. Andrade wants you all to know his end game. Zelina says they will ruin Money in the Bank right now.
Almas says in five days, he will climb the ladder, take the contract, and become Mr. Money in the Bank.
