Becky Lynch won the Six-Pack Challenge to become the first SmackDown Women’s Champion

RICHMOND, Va. — In the opening contest of SmackDown LIVE’s first solo pay-per-view, Becky Lynch made history by overcoming five other competitors in a Six-Pack Elimination Challenge to become the first SmackDown Women’s Champion!

The rules of the Six-Pack Challenge were a recipe for chaos from the start, as all six women had to battle until five were eliminated and one Superstar was left standing. 

In the complete free-for-all that followed, Naomi pinned Alexa Bliss, Natalya made Naomi tap out to the Sharpshooter and Nikki Bella eliminated Natalya. In addition to Becky, this left Nikki and Carmella in the running — two Superstars who clearly have had no love lost for each other in recent weeks. Although Carmella ultimately found a way to score a quick win over her adversary, the Fearless Superstar continued to tangle with her after the bell.

When Nikki exited, a determined Irish Lass Kicker went to war against The Princess of Staten Island and ultimately reigned supreme with a series of suplexes and the Dis-arm-her.

With Becky’s monumental victory, SmackDown LIVE finally has the Women’s Champion it has been waiting for. How long she will stand at the front of the pack remains to be seen.
