Charlotte Flair def. Becky Lynch to become the new SmackDown Women’s Champion; Bayley cashed in her Money in the Bank contract to win the title

Charlotte Flair def. Becky Lynch to become the new SmackDown Women’s Champion; Bayley cashed in her Money in the Bank contract to win the title

HARTFORD, Conn. — Goodbye, “Becky Two Belts.” And goodbye, Charlotte Nine Times. In a stunning turn of events, the SmackDown Women’s Championship left WWE Money in the Bank with neither the woman who carried it into Hartford, nor the woman who won it from the champion. Instead, it belonged to the woman who won the Women’s Money in the Bank contract less than two hours earlier, Bayley.

That’s right, Bayley is your new SmackDown Women’s Champion, having taken advantage of a truly chaotic conclusion to the latest installment of the eternal Lynch-Flair rivalry. Despite immediately swooping in on Becky while she was depleted from a match with Lacey Evans, The Queen struggled to put The Man to bed until Lacey herself intervened, blasting Becky with the Women’s Right she never got a chance to hit in her own bout. Despite a last-ditch roll-up attempt, The Man was out on her feet after that, and a big boot from Charlotte relieved Becky of “One Belt,” though The Queen’s victory lap would be short-lived.

Amid a two-on-one beatdown from Lacey and Charlotte against The Man, Bayley made her presence known, clearing Lacey from the ring and alley-ooping Charlotte face-first into the ring post when The Queen moved to dispatch her. Following some initial hesitation, Bayley did what needed to be done, cashing in her contract and flattening Flair with a top-rope elbow drop to claim her first SmackDown Women’s Championship. And all things considered, Charlotte perhaps should have known better. It’s not the fist time Bayley has shocked the WWE Universe, or even Charlotte specifically. It’s been proven, time and again, that given the opportunity, Bayley will make believers out of those who write her off. It was a lesson foolishly forgotten and learned the hard way, once again.
