There are a lot of unanswered questions heading into SmackDown Live! tonight after the Money in the Bank PPV. Alexa Bliss took the win in the Women’s MITB match and since she is from RAW this means SmackDown came back empty handed. Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair left their friendship at the door as they slug it out at the top of a ladder. Will this create any type of rift between the tea friends?
Naomi was moments away from winning the MITB match. Her fingers were wrapped around the hook that the briefcase was attached to, but she was unable to unhook her chance. How will she react after her close win? Lana impressed many with her outing in the event. Did she impress General Manager Paige enough that she may get more matches on a weekly basis?
As far as our Smackdown Women’s Champion, the trash talker herself, Carmella, is still at the top of the mountain. She was able to take advantage of a distraction for Asuka and pick up the win. Mella in the bank received assistance from an old friend in a returning James Ellsworth. He shocked the fans and Asuka herself as he appeared dress up in an Asuka outfit. What will Asuka have to say about her defeat?
Check out WWE’s official preview listed below:
“Becky Lynch was inches away from becoming Ms. Money in the Bank on Sunday until Alexa Bliss dashed her dreams and claimed the contract for herself. Despite the setback, The Irish Lass Kicker has been on a roll in recent weeks on SmackDown LIVE, which she’ll look to continue in one-on-one competition against Billie Kay of The IIconics. Can Lynch bounce back, or will Kay ensure The Irish Lass Kicker continues to have a bad week?”
“Carmella pulled off what many in the WWE Universe thought was impossible at WWE Money in the Bank, defeating Asuka to retain the SmackDown Women’s Championship. The Princess of Staten Island had a shocking assist from the returning James Ellsworth, who helped her pick up the victory. How will the champion follow up her big win? Is another Mellabration in the cards? Will Carmella have to deal with Asuka, who will surely be out for retribution? “
