We are looking for reports for those attending the show.

The two always put on wrestling clinics, and with the British crowd ready to welcome Styles back after his title win in Manchester in November, the match could be a classic.

- Carmella held a "Royal Mellabration" and was interrupted by Paige, who announced Carmella vs. Asuka for the Smackdown Women's Championship at Money in the Bank.

With Backlash now out of the way, it's time to look at which matches are set while speculating on others that could be booked ahead of the big show. AJ doesn't reveal the stipulation he has in mind but he knows what he's going to pick.

- Andrade "Cien" Almas beat Ric Constantino. He said that he's happy to wrestle again and wants to be the top guy in WWE again. Rose says her match with Lynch should have qualified her for MITB. This is still developing.

- There was a backstage segment with Samoa Joe trash-talking and setting up a match against Big Cass for next week. We'll now wait to see which six women will join them in the bout. The New Day will get to select a member to enter the men's Money in the Bank Ladder Match. She runs down how she's better than everybody in Great Britain because Mella is Money.

-AJ Styles vs. Shinsuke Nakamura in a non-title match with the victor choosing the stipulation for their WWE Championship match at Money in the Bank.

- Segment 6: Shinsuke Nakamura is interviewed backstage about his match at Money in the Bank against Styles. It would make sense for this feud to reach a quick conclusion at the show.
