Bayley is on top of the women’s division on the blue brand of WWE and “The Man” is holding one less title.
The reign as WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion for Becky Lynch has ended as she lost the strap to Charlotte Flair at the WWE Money In The Bank pay-per-view event in Hartford, CT. The finish of the match saw Lynch toss her to the floor and they did a near count out spot. Lacey Evans ran back down to the ring and punched Lynch. Flair with a big boot for the win.
Post-match, Flair and Evans beat down Lynch until Bayley ran down to the ring to make the save. Bayley cashed in the MITB contract where she would beat Flair. Bayley is now the SmackDown Women’s Champion.
Back on the April 23rd episode of SmackDown Live, Flair beat Bayley to become the new #1 contender for the SmackDown Women’s Title. As a result, Flair earned the right to challenge Lynch for the title at this show.
Lynch has dethroned Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair when she beat the women in a Triple Threat Match to win the RAW and SmackDown Women’s Titles at WWE WrestleMania 35, which ended up serving as the main event. This marked history as it was the first time that women have headlined the biggest event of the year for the company.
Going forward, it will be interesting to see which title that Lynch chases after.
