WWE kicked off their 2019 Money in the Bank PPV with dramatic women’s division action when Bayley became the third Miss Money in the Bank in the show’s opening match. With Becky Lynch scheduled to defend both the Raw and Smackdown Women’s Championships later that night, it seemed inevitable that Bayley would cash in.
Lynch’s first defense of the show was against Lacy Evans, who she defeated by submission with the Dis-Arm-Her to retain the Raw Women’s Championship. Charlotte Flair entered the arena right after the match to challenge for the Smackdown Women’s Championship, surprising Lynch and the audience. Flair defeated Lynch with some unexpected help from Evans, whose hair pull and Women’s Right to Lynch while the ref wasn’t looking allowed Flair to score a pinfall victory and become a nine-time champion.
Things got chaotic after the match ended, with Lynch attacking Evans, looking for revenge. Evans and Flair got the better of Lynch together and beat her up as the crowd chanted “We want Bayley.” The audience soon got their wish when Bayley ran into the arena carrying her briefcase.
Bayley took out Flair, then visibly decided to cash in on her fellow NXT Horsewoman, which you can watch here:
Their match consisted of one diving elbow drop, after which Bayley pinned Flair to become the new Smackdown Women’s Champion. She celebrated in the crowd as commentary described the moment as “life-changing.” Bayley has now won every current women’s championship in WWE.
