Jermaine Royster reporting

Smackdown comes to us live from the Blue Cross Arena in Rochester, New York and tonight we two firsts on Smackdown Live as Shinsuke Nakamura faces the new face of America, United States Champion Kevin Owens. Also the long awaited debut/return of the New Day happens tonight and its interesting how they fit in the Smackdown Tag Team division. The Womens Division will be on full display as the Welcoming Commitee will face Naomi, Charlotte & Becky Lynch in Six Womens action. If that isn’t enough we have an instant rematch between Dolph Ziggler & AJ Styles.
Shane McMahon’s music starts off the show and the Commissioner makes his way down to the ring while all five of the Womens Money In The Bank participants are in the ring. Shane introduces all five women then reveals the Womens Money In The Bank Breifcase which is all white the green. Shane then informs all of them that the reward is great but the risk is even greater. James Ellsworth interupts and he says there is no need to explain the rules because we already know Carmella will win the match. Charlotte Flair then chimes saying that she is the superior to them all but Natalya doesnt like this and she says she is….Becky Lynch steps in and tells her to stop ripping of Bret Hart, Tamina chimes in but then the lights go out and the Champion Naomi shows up. Naomi says she is jealous because she wishes she could be in this match but then she interupted by the long awaited…Lana. Lana prances o the ring in a sparkling blue dress then enters the ring with a microphone. Shane says hello then says this isnt the correct time for her to debut, Lana says she will make it work for him because she wants to compete in the Money In The Bank Ladder Match. Naomi starts to laugh but Lana doesnt think this is funny, Naomi states that she hasnt even beaten anyone yet. Lana fires back saying she can beat her and then both women have to be seperated by Shane McMahon. Lana then storms off speaking another language and the crowd chants, “WE WANT LANA!”
