Carmella Says Becky Lynch Was Planned To Win MITB Rematch In 2017

Carmella became the very first Ms. Money in the Bank when she won the briefcase in 2017. However, this win was sparked with controversy as it was James Ellsworth to unhook the briefcase and drop it down to Carmella below.

A rematch of this match took place and had all the same participants: Carmella, Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, Natalya, and Tamina. In this, Carmella won again, but this time on her own.

While speaking on The Nikki & Brie Show podcast, Carmella said it was planned for Lynch to win in the rematch.

Originally, it was supposed to be Becky, she was winning it the second time, that was the plan. We had another match a week later, the plan was for Becky to win it, but because I came on SmackDown after Money in the Bank and I cut a promo opening SmackDown that night. I remember I opened SmackDown with the promo and we had physicality later in the night when Bryan [Daniel Bryan] was the GM and he was supposed to talk about us having another match. The physicality was me on top, I was supposed to knock everyone out of the ring, and because the promo was so good, that they changed it in the end where Becky and Charlotte I was down and out and they were up at the end of the night because I ended up winning it the following week. I’m so grateful it went the way it did.”
