WWE has announced the following Money In The Bank qualifier matches for Friday Night SmackDown:
– Drew McIntyre vs. Sheamus
– Lacey Evans vs. Xia Li
Evans makes her return after weeks of vignettes hyping her return to action after taking time away last year for her pregnancy. Evans was initially scheduled to be part of the SmackDown brand and then was moved back to Raw. Within the last week or so, she was moved back to SmackDown and she is reportedly going to be a heel.
Also announced for SmackDown is an Intercontinental Title match featuring champion Ricochet against Gunther.
Dave Meltzer reported this week that Roman Reigns will not be part of the Money In The Bank pay-per-view, which means that he is unlikely to appear on SmackDown until the hype for SummerSlam begins.
