The men’s Money in the Bank ladder match was already looking stacked heading into tonight’s episode of SmackDown where Drew Gulak was looking to join his teammate Daniel Bryan in the match with a victory over King Corbin.
Money Night Raw has already seen all three of their representatives announced with Aleister Black, Rey Mysterio, and Apollo Crews all taking their places in this year’s match, while Bryan was the only man in the match representing SmackDown.
Gulak could have been enough to overcome the threat of The King if it wasn’t for the interference from Shinsuke Nakamura and Cesaro, who took Bryan out at ringside before providing the distraction that was needed for Corbin to push Gulak into the steel post and then deliver End of Days.
After the match, Corbin continued the assault when he took out Gulak with his scepter, which will now see Gulak added to The King’s list of victims alongside Elias. There is now just one place left in the men’s Money in the Bank ladder match but while it’s known that it will be a SmackDown representative, the two participants are yet to be announced.
The final match in the qualifiers may still be up in the air, but former World Champion CM Punk definitely got WWE fans talking on social media when he responded to WWE’s post announcing Corbin’s qualification.
Punk has quite the history when it comes to the Money in the Bank ladder match since he won two years in a row back in 2008 and 2009.
The self-proclaimed Best In The World responded to the Tweet that pointed out that there was still one place left in the multi-person ladder match, and while it’s highly unlikely that Punk would make his WWE return and even more unlikely that he would announce it on Twitter in this way, it’s interesting that Punk has felt the need to comment at all.
