Tonight at the 2019 Money in the Bank pay-per-view, multiple championships were on the line, along with the two briefcase matches of the same name. But how did the champions fair throughout the evening?
Two titles changed hands tonight as Rey Mysterio defeated Samoa Joe to win the United States Championship, and Charlotte Flair defeated Bayley to become the new Smackdown Live Women’s Champion.
Check out some action from the women’s match:
Sometimes, the old saying sums it up best: What goes around, comes around. One month after defeating Rey Mysterio in less than a minute, United States Champion Samoa Joe was dethroned by the legendary luchador at WWE Money in the Bank in similarly sudden fashion, with Rey notching a flash pinfall that was so out-of-nowhere, it took both champion and challenger a second to register what had happened.
And also from WWE.com:
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.
However, the night would not end there for The Queen, as Bayley would immediately cash in her Money in the bank contract that she won earlier in the night to become the new Smackdown Live Women’s Champion.
I am so happy for Bayley! She is finally back on top of the mountain where she belongs!
