Paige To Host Women’s Money in the Bank Summit:
Just days before the Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match, SmackDown LIVE General Manager Paige will gather Team Blue’s entrants for a summit tonight.
Charlotte Flair, Naomi, Becky Lynch and Lana each had to earn their way into the battle in Chicago, and they’ve been trying to gain all-important momentum in the weeks since. Naomi and Lana have been at each other’s throats following a heated Dance-Off, while Flair and Lynch put their friendship to the test in a thrilling one-on-one battle this week that saw The Irish Lass Kicker defeat her pal with the Dis-arm-her.
What will happen when all four are in the same ring? How will Paige handle what is sure to be a high-tension situation?

Jeff Hardy To Battle Shinsuke Nakamura After War Of Words On Twitter:
Shinsuke Nakamura is just days away from what is sure to be a brutal Last Man Standing Match against WWE Champion AJ Styles, but before he steps in the ring with The Phenomenal One, WWE’s Rockstar must deal with another titleholder on SmackDown LIVE – United State Champion Jeff Hardy.
It all started when Nakamura tweeted a picture of him and Hardy in the ring, but he declined to caption the photo.
