Last night, Shane McMahon unveiled the look of the Women’s Money in the Bank contract in the presence of the entire women’s roster. It was indeed another historic moment from the Smackdown commissioner to come up with.

The segment was cut short with Lana showing up on Smackdown Live for the first time ever. The audience was delighted to see her on the show, finally after vignettes around her continued to air, every single week.

Quite expectedly, she continued with her demand which was revealed on Twitter, previously. She wished to participate in the inaugural Women’s Money in the Bank ladder match. But, Shane did not allow her to do so since she has not competed in a single competition on the blue brand, till date. Lana became irate and left the show, at that moment.

But, being the heel she did not let a chance go to make a statement. In between the six women tag team contest, she returned to the ringside to provide the distraction to the champion, Naomi who was in control of the match.

She pulled Naomi’s leg off the apron to ruin her momentum. This allowed Tamina to connect with the superkick and pin the champion. This was a massive upset for Naomi and she quickly went to Shane McMahon begging for a match against Lana at the Money in the Bank PPV.

The commissioner was not willing to hand her the matchup. But, Naomi was so desperate that she wanted to put her title on the line in order to receive the first-time ever contest.

So, the wish was granted, officially, as Shane declared that on June 18th Naomi will now defend the Smackdown women’s championship against Lana at MITB. The PPV is set to be hosted by the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri.

Also, this will mark the in-ring debut of the Ravishing Russian in a big way as part of Smackdown Live. Previously, she was a part of a tag team action at Wrestlemania 32. This time, the scenario is different since she will have to prove her efficiency as a solo superstar. The contest is going to be exciting considering both the performers are extremely agile.
