WWE’s annual Money in the Bank is happening tonight at Hartford, Conn. at the XL Center. Diva Dirt’s own Simon Hannig is making his overall predictions along with one bold prediction. Here’s what is on the card for the women’s side of the show.
- Women’s Money in the Bank ladder match
- Becky Lynch (c) vs. Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship
- Becky Lynch (c) vs. Lacey Evans for the Raw Women’s Championship
Women’s Money in the Bank ladder match prediction
Mandy Rose wins. It has been previously reported that Vince McMahon is very fond of Rose and how he thinks she can be a huge star within the company. Tonight can be her night when she changes her fortunes and wins a title opportunity, any time and anywhere. It will be interesting to see the type of reception from the crowd Rose will receive if she does in fact win. All the signs are pointing to her winning, whether you like it or not.
Becky Lynch (c) vs. Charlotte Flair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship
When we thought Lynch would get a new challenger instead of Flair for the title, we were wrong. For the second time this year, these two will battle it out for the title. With Lynch doing double duty tonight, it will be interesting to see how the company handles both matches and the time frame for both. Lynch will be the winner for this one. It is Lynch’s time to continue to shine in the women’s division and to take the spotlight over Flair.
Becky Lynch (c) vs. Lacey Evans for the RAW Women’s Championship
A lot of us in the wrestling community have been wondering for months what the WWE was going to do with Evans, as she made random appearances after random appearances. Now, it seems like the company was saving her for this title opportunity with “The Man.” Although “The Man” will be doing two title matches tonight, Evans will still fall short. Evans is still relatively new to the main roster audience after getting called up from NXT. It is still too early to crown her a champion. It is Lynch’s time to run the Raw women’s division, where Ronda Rousey held the title for almost a year.
One bold prediction
Mandy Rose will cash in for the SmackDown women’s title and win over Lynch. WWE can make this a repeat of last years MITB where they had Alexa Bliss cash in on the same night to defeat Nia Jax for the title. Rousey was challenging Jax for the title that night and had her undefeated streak on the line. This is how the Bliss-Rousey feud got started. With Rose cashing in, the company can start a new feud between her and Lynch.
If WWE wanted too, they can also throw Flair in the feud. To spark some buzz, Mr. McMahon could do something like this to shock the wrestling community. This could very well happen if what Mr. McMahon feels about Rose as a top contender is accurate.
