Taking it back a few years to Money in the Bank 2019 and when Becky Lynch was Becky2Belts and had to defend both championships at the pay-per-view.
She first defended the Raw Women’s Championship against Lacey Evans. Evans was still rather new to the main roster at the time as she was called up at the start of 2019. She appeared in the Royal Rumble that year as entrant number one and would last nearly 30-minutes.
After months of appearing on both Raw and SmackDown simply walking out to the crowd, waving and smiling, she was drafted to Raw during the Superstar Shake-Up post-WrestleMania. Her first major feud was with Lynch which led to this match.
After going for a high-risk maneuver by Lynch in which her opponent moved out of the way, the final moments of the match had Evans get a near fall off of a knee strike. After a roll through off the ropes, Lynch would quickly focus on trying to lock in the DisarmHer to get the submission victory. Evans was near the ropes to cause a break.
Evans delivered a chop block and rolled up Lynch but the official couldn’t see if both shoulders were down. Lynch rolled through into the Disarmher and cause Evans to tap out quickly.
Later in the night, Lynch would defend her SmackDown Women’s Championship against Charlotte Flair. Flair would defeat her becoming champion as mere seconds later Bayley would cash in her Money in the Bank briefcase that she won earlier in the night to become SmackDown Women’s Champion.
Lynch would go on to hold the Raw Women’s Title until she went out on maternity leave over a year later. She handed the belt to Asuka after Asuka won the 2020 Money in the Bank match.
