The Boss threw a bunch of steel chairs in the ring and a couple of them landed on top of Becky. Banks hit Becky with a chair a couple of times and climbed to the second rope. Lynch threw a chair at Banks’ face and planted her with an Exploder Suplex on top of the chairs. Lynch locked in the Dis-Arm-Her for the submission victory.
Becky and Sasha put on an excellent match tonight at WWE Hell in a Cell 2019. The crowd was fully behind Banks’ return as a heel but WWE proceeded to do nothing with it in the weeks leading up to the PPV. I’m assuming Sasha Banks will be making her way to SmackDown in next week’s draft following this loss.
