Bayley is the new SmackDown Women’s Champion after cashing in her newly-won briefcase on Charlotte following Charlotte’s victory over Becky Lynch.
Charlotte defeated Lynch during Lynch’s second championship defense with help from Lacey Evans, who lost to Lynch in a matchup for the Raw Women’s Championship. After the match Evans and Flair double team Becky until Bayley made the save. She then cashed in her briefcase with an elbow drop and a win over Charlotte, who is now the shortest-reigning SmackDown Women’s champion in WWE history.
This marks the second consecutive year the women’s Money in the Bank briefcase was cashed in the night of the event after Alexa did the same last year to Nia Jax.
