They’re running out of spots. WWE isn’t in the best place at the moment as everything has been about Money in the Bank. With less than three weeks left to go before the pay per view, there is one spot left in both namesake matches. That will be decided this week on SmackDown Live, but we need more than one big main event. Some emphasis on some of the other matches would be a good idea, but that’s easier said than done. How is WWE trying get it done? has released its official preview for this week’s episode of SmackDown Live. While the main event and biggest story of the show is Daniel Bryan vs. Samoa Joe in the final Money in the Bank qualifying match, there are other stories as well. This time around that means a look at the upcoming WWE Title and SmackDown Women’s Title matches at the upcoming pay per view. Here are the stories featured in the preview.

Opinion: It’s nice that there seems to be at least some focus on stuff other than the Money in the Bank match. It also helps to have something other than a singles match between the people involved in the ladder match. Throw in some other names for the sake of some flavor and continue to tease which New Day member will get the spot on the match. It makes for a more interesting show, which is what WWE needs right now.
