Huge Change To Title Match At Money In The Bank

Raw Women's Championship Belt

One of the title matches at Money in the Bank isn’t taking place as originally planned!

On the June 20th episode of Monday Night Raw, Bianca Belair addressed the crowd and revealed that her scheduled match against Rhea Ripley wouldn’t be taking place at Money in the Bank because Ripley is not medically cleared to compete. Ripley showed off her dental injury on social media, though it is unclear whether the injury occurred at Hell in a Cell or on last week’s episode of Raw.

However, the champion made it clear that she still plans to defend her title at the Premium Live Event.

Belair then announced that Alexa Bliss, Liv Morgan, Carmella, Asuka, and Becky Lynch would face off in a fatal five way match to see who faces her at Money in the Bank. Originally, Becky Lynch was scheduled to go one on one with Asuka in a Money in the Bank qualification match. This brought out Becky Lynch, who complained about not receiving her one-on-one rematch after Bianca defeated her for the Raw Women’s Championship.

Asuka came out next to confront her long-time foe, and after that, Liv Morgan addressed the fact that she’s already qualified for Money in the Bank but would gladly trade that opportunity to face Bianca Belair at the Premium Live Event instead. Carmella then joined the fray, asking why Liv was out here when she’s not a former champion.

Alexa Bliss was the last to join the promo train, telling Carmella to stop being a hypocrite and messing with Liv Morgan. Belair shut down the talking and said that the crowd was ready for some action, and announced that the fatal five way match would be coming up next.

After a bout that elicited “this is awesome” chants from the crowd, Carmella emerged victorious when she pinned Liv Morgan. Corey Graves was ecstatic on commentary as his wife posed atop the ring post, facing off with Bianca Belair, who held up her Raw Women’s Championship.

Enraged, Becky Lynch confronted Adam Pearce backstage about how unfair it was that she wasn’t champion. During the match, Becky looked to have a victory secured, but Asuka pulled her out of the ring. Adam Pearce then announced that the original Money in the Bank qualification match between Lynch and Asuka would take place tonight after all.
