Two more women have qualified for the 2023 women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match. A match that will take place on July 2.
Heading into the June 5 episode of Raw we only knew one out of six women for the MITB match. That woman is Zelina Vega who qualified on Friday’s SmackDown after defeating Lacey Evans. Now, two more women join Vega and those are Becky Lynch and Zoey Stark.
Speaking of Stark, she would be the second woman on Raw to qualify after taking out the veteran Natalya with a Z360. This result came after Stratus tripped up Nattie at the ropes unbeknownst to the referee. It is very good for Stark to have a Hall of Famer in her corner!
We will find out who will take spots four and five this week on SmackDown. As a reminder, Michin takes on Bayley as IYO SKY battles Shotzi.
A third women’s match took place on Raw. The new WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Shayna Baszler and Ronda Rousey continued to feel confident after their victory and encouraged any other tag team to stand up to them. NXT Alum and former NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions and newcomers to Raw – Kayden Carter and Katana Chance – did just that. The KC’s had their in ring debut against the champs in a non title affair.
The match was given a good length of time and the KC’s took the champs to their limits. They even delivered the After Party which gave them so many wins in the past but Shayna Baszler made sure to pull Chance off of Rousey to continue the match. Rousey even went for the ankle lock which Chance was able to escape. Eventually, the champs would win after Baszler locked in the Kirifuda Clutch on Carter who tapped out.
The SmackDown Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley was a feature on Miz TV as Dominik Mysterio was a special guest. He traded words with Cody Rhodes before slapping him and running scared behind Mami to protect him. Of course Cody wouldn’t touch Rhea but perhaps another Rhodes would.
Lastly, Maxxine Dupri appeared backstage with Alpha Academy. They talked about her interaction with Valhalla last week and they think she is ready to take her own. Gable says he will help train her but she has to get her gear on.
