WWE News: Huge Title Change at Money in the Bank 2019!
The New Miss Money in the Bank, Bailey, has become the new SmackDown Women’s Champion. Earlier in the night, Bailey won a 8 women ladder match to become the 3rd women to carry the coveted briefcase and the hugger made the contract count on the same night. In the process she became the 2nd women overall and consecutively (After Alexa Bliss) to cash in the case on the same night they won.
Becky Lynch, the defending champion took on Charlotte Flair immediately after defending her Raw women’s championship against Lacey Evans. It looked like Lynch would walk out of money in the bank with both her titles intact. However, she lost the match after a Lacey Evans interruption. Charlotte celebrated her 9th title reign. The Frustrated Becky then attacked Lacey but Charlotte and Lacey ganged up on the fallen ‘Man’.
Bailey then ran in for the save but was taken out by Charlotte. The Queen in trying to add to Bailey’s misery, went for the spear. The Hugger got out of the way instead causing Flair to crash in to the turnbuckle.
Sensing an opportunity, Bailey immediately cashed in her contract and pinned Charlotte to win her first SmackDown Women’s Championship.
