Asuka def. Mandy Rose
SmackDown Women’s Champion Carmella joined the commentary team, preparing to watch her challenger at WWE Money in the Bank, Asuka, take on Mandy Rose. However, during The Empress of Tomorrow’s entrance, Asuka was blindside attacked by Rose’s cohort Sonya Deville, who sent her crumbling to the ramp. Insisting on continuing, Asuka proceeded with the match despite clearly being in pain.
God’s Greatest Creation immediately pounced on Asuka as soon as the bell rang, trying to capitalize on Deville’s attack. However, despite Deville’s pre-match assault and Rose’s vigilant attack, Asuka rallied and defeated Mandy with the Asuka Lock for a mightily impressive tapout victory.
Asuka would not have too long to celebrate, however, as Carmella boldly walked right into the ring and raised her championship directly in the face of The Empress of Tomorrow.
Mella’s message? She ain’t scared.
