Lana is shown getting ready backstage ahead of her qualifying match against Billie Kay, and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Aiden English sings Lana out.
The Iconic Duo cut a promo on their way out, saying this calls for a duet. They spend a moment warming their voices up by making bird noises and begin singing their song, an acapella number about how Lana is a loser. When they win Money in the Bank, SmackDown will be Iconic.
Billie Kay vs. Lana (Money in the Bank Qualifying Match)
Aiden English clears his throat as they square up and walks at ringside holding a giant “Lana Day” sign. They Iconics go and confront him about it, Peyton slapping him in the face. Lana slaps her back and puts her into the barricade! Billie takes it to her, throwing her back inside, Lana with a roundhouse kick…
Lana wins by pinfall with an X-Factor, qualifying for the women’s Money in the Bank ladder match.
One of SmackDown LIVE’s remaining spots in the Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match will be decided next Tuesday when Lana clashes with The IIconics’ Billie Kay.
The Ravishing Russian is looking to join her husband Rusev, who has already qualified for the Men’s Ladder Match, in Chicago. Lana is already having visions of she and her husband lording their contracts over Team Blue as Mr. & Mrs. Money in the Bank.
However, Billie Kay will not be a pushover. The Femme Fatale, in a word association game with Peyton Royce, declared that she is a winner, the Money in the Bank briefcase is a perfect accessory, the contract will make her a champion and the future will be, of course, IIconic.
The IIconics get a handcam promo and do some word association, running London and Lana down and putting themselves over before declaring the future to be iconic.
