– As noted, next week’s WWE SmackDown will feature Lana vs. Billie Kay in a Money In the Bank qualifying match. Below is backstage video of Lana talking to Dasha Fuentes after last night’s SmackDown in London. Lana interrupts Dasha and says she just wants to make sure everyone understands that she is proof that if you fall flat on your face and get back up to work hard and chase your dreams, then anything can happen. Lana says people call her the best because she gets back up when she makes mistakes or fails. Lana says she will redeem her losses next week by crushing Billie. Lana says she will go on to win Money In the Bank and make history with Rusev by becoming the first Mrs. & Mr. Money In the Bank. Lana says this is all simply because good things happen to good people, and she is good people.

Don't be fooled by my "Nice Guy" smile. There is a reason why I haven't been defeated since December.
There is a reason why I'm #CruiserweightChampion.
