- SmackDown opens with the theme and we go right to CM Punk's entrance. The Money in the Bank briefcase is hanging above the ring as we see footage from Monday of Punk and Curtis Axel. Punk stands with his arms crossed and takes in the massive "CM Punk" chant. He says if he was John Cena, he would give a heartfelt speech about the 4th of July, but he is CM Punk. He says the 4th is about independence and not conforming; blazing your own trail. He says he is independent to a fault. Punk wants to get his hands on Brock Lesnar and his second goal is to win the Money in the Bank and become WWE Champion again.
Alberto Del Rio interrupts and walks down in a suit. He says he is the World Champion and this is his show. Del Rio gets in the ring and they have a back and forth. Del Rio insults the fans and calls them lazy and fat. Punk talks about how just recently, Del Rio was championing the USA. Punk says he fans saw through his façade. Del Rio orders Punk to leave his ring. Teddy Long comes out and says there will be fireworks in the main event when Punk faces Del Rio.
- Paul Heyman approaches CM Punk in his locker room and tries to give him advice. He wants him to pull out of the main event tonight and let him be at Punk's side at MITB. Punk thanks him but as his friend, tells him to please stay out of it.
- The Usos make their entrance and we see a graphic for their match at Money in the Bank Kickoff against Reigns & Rollins for the tag titles.
The Usos vs. Team Rhodes Scholars
Sandow takes control of Jey Uso and hits the Elbow of Disdain for 2. Cody tags in for some double teaming but Sandow and Rhodes get double superkicks. The Usos hit simultaneous splashes from opposite corners on Sandow for the quick win.
Winners by pin: The Usos
The Shield appear on the Titantron and cut a promo on the Usos. They say they are as strong as they have ever been and The Usos will need more than luck to take the tag titles from them. Ambrose chimes in with some words for Christian and he says he will be Mr. Money in the Bank and he will own the world. This was very good. The little nuances and facial expressions among the 3 men are fascinating with slight suggestions of tension.
Alicia Fox vs. Kaitlyn
Back and forth. Kaitlyn starts to build momentum as AJ's music hits and she skips around the ring with her title. Kaitlyn is distracted but still holds her own. Kaitlyn goes to strike AJ off the apron and Alicia rolls her up from behind for the win.
Winner by pin: Alicia Fox
