WWE Money in the Bank 2019 aired live from the XL Center in Hartford, CT. Here are 10 takeaways from the PPV:
10Bayley Won The Women’s MITB Ladder Match
Carmella, Mandy Rose, Dana Brooke, Nikki Cross , Ember Moon, Natalya, Naomi, and Bayley competed int he women’s MITB Ladder Match to start off the show. Nikki Cross trapped Carmella and Dana Brooke in the ring apron and unloaded a flurry of punches. Cross then put a ladder over her head and started spinning around. Cross took everyone out before Brooke hit her with a Dropkick.
Nikki applied a Sleeper Hold to Moon but Ember slammed Cross into the ladder. Carmella cleared out the ring and set up a ladder in the corner. Natalya launched Carmella into the ladder but then turned around into an Enziguri from Naomi. Carmella hit Bayley with a Superkick. Mandy then booted the ladder into Carmella and she grabbed her knee. Rose went to attack Carmella but Carmella told her to get away and rolled out of the ring.
The medical staff started bringing Carmella up the entrance ramp as Dana Brooke set up Moon on the ladder. Dana flipped onto Moon and then traded shots with Bayley. Natalya and Mandy sandwiched Bayley inside a ladder and slammed it on her several times. Naomi then hit Bayley with a Moonsault as Cross leveled Natalya with a Spear.
Cross through Naomi to the outside and then hit Ember with a spinning Neckbreaker. Dana bounced the ladder off of Nikki’s face and then made her way towards the briefcase. Mandy joined her on the ladder and started trading punches. Bayley and Naomi hopped on the ladder and Nikki tried to climb to the top. Natalya shoved over the ladder and then turned around into an epic Eclipse from Ember Moon.
Mandy Rose slammed Moon onto a ladder and was then alone in the ring. Rose set up the ladder and Carmella started limping down the entrance ramp. Carmella bashed Rose’s face off the ladder several times and then launched her into the barricade surrounding the ring. Carmella made her way towards the briefcase but Sonya Deville dragged her to the canvas. Deville leveled Carmella with a Spear and then rolled Rose back inside the ring.
Sonya lifted Mandy onto her shoulders and started climbing the ladder. Bayley climbed up the other side and shoved both Deville and Rose to the mat. Bayley then grabbed the briefcase and won the match.
Bayley absolutely deserved to win this match and capture the MITB contract. In a perfect world, I would have liked to see someone like Ember Moon win this match since she has been completely overlooked since joining the main roster.
