On Friday’s edition of “WWE Smackdown,” the playing field for the upcoming Money in the Bank ladder match became clearer as Chelsea Green, Carmelo Hayes, and Andrade secured their spots by winning their respective qualifying matches. The event, set to take place in just over two weeks, will feature these competitors vying for the coveted Money in the Bank contract.

In the opening bout, Green faced off against Michin and Bianca Belair. Despite Michin’s strong offense, including landing Eat Defeat on Belair and catching Green with a Styles Clash, the tide turned when Belair hit Michin with a clean KOD. Green capitalized on the situation, shoving Belair off of Michin and stealing the win to secure her place in the women’s Money in the Bank ladder match.

The Bloodline’s influence was felt in the following two qualifying matches. Hayes battled Randy Orton and Tama Tonga in the middle of the show. Although Hayes and Tonga briefly joined forces to take down Orton, the veteran quickly recovered with a hanging DDT. The match took a chaotic turn when Tanga Loa appeared at ringside to distract Orton. Kevin Owens, who had his own qualifying match later that evening, intervened to fight off Loa and Tonga. However, the distraction allowed Hayes to roll up Orton for the win.

Andrade’s path to Money in the Bank was not without controversy. In a match against Owens and Sheamus, Andrade found himself on the receiving end of a Brogue Kick from Sheamus. As Sheamus attempted to pin Andrade, Solo Sikoa emerged from the crowd and pulled the referee out of the ring. In the ensuing confusion, Andrade managed to score a quick pin on Owens to punch his ticket to the ladder match.

With Green, Hayes, and Andrade now confirmed for Money in the Bank, the stage is set for an unpredictable and high-stakes battle. As the event draws closer, fans eagerly await to see who will climb the ladder and secure the contract that could change the course of their career in WWE.
