Lacey Evans is the first superstar to qualify for the Women’s Money in the Bank match.
Evans defeated Xia Li on the June 10th episode of SmackDown to become the first participant in the ladder match. Evans had no ring rust on the return, showing great athleticism on her return. Evans would hit the Woman’s Right onto Li to pick up the pinfall victory.
It should be noted that the graphic that followed the match showed that there are 6 vacant spaces still to be filled for the Money in the Bank ladder match.
This was the first time that Evans has competed inside a WWE ring since February 2021. Evans would take time away from WWE as she was pregnant with her second child. Vignettes promoting the return of Lacey Evans began on April 8th 2022.
The other qualifying match on SmackDown saw Sheamus face off against Drew McIntyre. However, this match would end in a no contest following a disqualification.
