Read WWE.com‘s preview to the match below:
“The SmackDown LIVE Women’s division is once again about to prove just how ground-breaking it can be. At WWE Money in the Bank, Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, Natalya, Tamina and Carmella will compete in the first-ever Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match.
The fuse for the unprecedented showdown was lit during the May 30 edition of SmackDown LIVE when all five Superstars competed in a 5-Way Elimination Match to determine the new No. 1 contender to SmackDown Women’s Champion Naomi at the highly-anticipated June 18 pay-per-view.
None of the athletes proved willing to wait for the bell, though, and a pre-match brawl inevitably broke out, setting the stage for all-out bedlam.
As the dust cleared, SmackDown LIVE Commissioner Shane McMahon picked up the mic and acknowledged just how hungry the five competitors were for a chance at the prestigious title. Taking pride in Team Blue being The Land of Opportunity, Shane-O-Mac seized the moment to make history by declaring that all five Superstars will square off in the first-ever Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match.
With ladders placed all around the ring, who will conquer the opposition, climb the dangerous rungs, grab the Money in the Bank briefcase and capture the coveted contract to earn an opportunity to challenge for the SmackDown Women’s Championship anytime they wish in the next year?”
WWE.com also caught up with Natalya ahead of the big match:

“At SmackDown LIVE’s WWE Money in the Bank pay-per-view, Lana will make her blue brand in-ring debut when she challenges Naomi for the SmackDown Women’s Championship in a match that was made following the turbulent events of the June 6 edition of SmackDown LIVE.
Angered over Commissioner Shane McMahon’s decision to deny her from entering the first-ever Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match, The Ravishing Russian suddenly attacked Naomi during the titleholder’s Six-Woman Tag Team Match.
In response, Naomi’s glow turned red, and she demanded that Shane-O-Mac grant Lana a title match against her at the June 18 pay-per-view and promised to “snatch her bald.”
Irate over the actions of her Total Divas co-star, the SmackDown Women’s Champion is ready for an out-and-out fight. But what will happen when she stands across the squared circle from an opponent with an in-ring style she knows nothing about?”
