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.
