Highlights are shown from last night’s Money in the Bank event.
Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch’s music hits, and she comes out without the title and holding the Money in the Bank briefcase won by Asuka last night. Lynch says tonight is a tough night for her. She’s torn between joy and sadness. She’s at a point in her life where things are going to change. Lynch asked the decision makers to change the stipulations to the Money in the Bank match and they did.
Before she gets to all that, she walked through these doors in the Performance Center not knowing anyone in a new country and didn’t know if anyone would care about a loudmouthed Irish woman. She learned that people did care, put her on their shoulders, and carried her to history. Through injury and triumph, the fans stood up for her and had her back. She grabbed onto the fans when she didn’t have anyone else. It is the people at home that deserve to hear this from her first. She has to go away for a while. Lynch is openly crying.
Asuka’s music hits, and she wildly comes down to the ring shouting. She’s mad Lynch has the briefcase. Lynch says Asuka beat her when no one else could. Asuka is the best wrestler around. Lynch is happy this is happening to Asuka. The match last night wasn’t for an opportunity to win the title. It was for much more. Asuka wasn’t able to unlock the briefcase… Lynch unlocks the briefcase and inside is the Raw Women’s Championship. Lynch says she can’t fight anymore so Asuka is the champion. Asuka happily celebrates in the ring and grabs the title before running off hooting and hollering. Asuka dances around.
Lynch looks genuinely happy. Lynch says as happy as Asuka is, Lynch is a little happier. Lynch says, “You go and be a warrior because I’m going to go be a mother!” Asuka looks so happy, hugs Lynch, and chants her name. Lynch is crying and hugs Asuka. Lynch tearfully walks away from the ring and looks around before walking to the back. Lynch looks into the camera and says, “I’ll miss you guys.”
Asuka’s music hits, and the new Raw Women’s Champion celebrates in the ring with some wild dancing.
