Quote Charlotte comes out to the ring, and she's got a mic. She talks about her WrestleMania loss to Becky Lynch in their triple threat match with Ronda Rousey. Charlotte says she was robbed at WrestleMania, and she wants Becky to come out and explain why she thinks she's the rightful Champion when she didn't beat Charlotte. Becky comes out and gets on the mic. She tells Charlotte that it was a winner takes all match, and Charlotte must not have understood what that meant. Becky says she beat the woman Charlotte couldn't beat - Ronda, and Becky has beaten Charlotte more times than she can count. They continue to talk trash until Bayley comes out to interrupt. Bayley says the Superstar Shakeup was supposed to be a fresh start, but all she sees is a rerun between Charlotte and Becky. Bayley says Becky has never beaten her. Charlotte tells Bayley to get in the back of the line because this is Charlotte's show. Bayley challenges Charlotte to a match to determine the #1 contender, but Charlotte says she's not worth her time. Bayley slaps the microphone out of Charlotte's hand, and it looks like we might have a match now.

- Charlotte vs. Bayley: Charlotte starts off strong and backs Bayley into the corner off the opening bell. Charlotte shoves Bayley, and Bayley shoves her back and knocks her down. Charlotte misses a spear and Bayley comes back with a neckbreaker. Charlotte fights back and slams Bayley into the corner. They trade slaps to the face now and Charlotte gets the upper hand and drops Bayley. Bayley rolls up Charlotte for a two count, then hits a springboard cross body for another two count. Bayley hits some strikes in the corner, but Charlotte ducks one and takes out Bayley's knee. Charlotte starts focusing her offense on Bayley's knee now, and Bayley rolls out to the apron for a breather. Charlotte looks for the Figure Four, but Bayley fights out and drops her. Both women are down now and Bayley is selling the knee. Charlotte escapes a suplex attempt, then she drops Bayley with a big boot for a two count. Charlotte goes for a moonsault off the top, but Bayley rolls out of he way. Bayley follows up with a German suplex. Bayley hits a sunset flip into the turnbuckle, then pins for a two count. Bayley misses a shot and Charlotte answers with a spear. Charlotte immediately pins for the three count.

 Winner: Charlotte

Bayley appears to be in the dog house and getting punished because Sasha isn't around.

She's a really popular babyface and shouldn't be losing clean to a heel after just one Spear.

Her brand switch will likely be to use her to make others look better.

They need to change her character, the hugger gimmick is boring and fans tired of it a long time ago which is why she's getting negative reactions. It seems they tried to make her the female Cena which is ironic as her fan reaction has gone much the same way his always did. 

I would maybe embrace the reaction and try her out as a heel.

People were obviously behind Bayley. I'm not sure why WWE are so hell-bent on overexposing their top talent. Going away did Reigns some good, it would do Charlotte some good. The silver lining is that Bayley is still undefeated by Becky.

Quote Carmella vs. Naomi vs. Nikki Cross vs. Mandy Rose vs. Ember Moon vs. Bayley vs. Dana Brooke vs. Natalya: This women's Money In The Bank ladder match is to determine who will get the Money In The Bank contract, which they can cash in on either the RAW or SmackDown Women's Champion. Sonya Deville is at ringside. All the women got at it in the opening moments of this one, and the ladders get brought into the match early on. Mandy starts working over Carmella's knee and Carmella sells a knee injury now. Ember knocks down Mandy, then it looks like everyone is ganging up on Naomi. She dodges all their attacks until Natalya suplexes Naomi on to a ladder. We see Carmella at ringside, and it looks like trainers and a referee are escorting her to the back. Dana throws Ember into a ladder in the corner, then Bayley sunset flips Dana into the ladder. Natalya and Mandy come in and work over Bayley with a ladder now. Noami fights back and clears the ring, then starts climbing the ladder. Ember Moon runs in and throws Naomi off the ladder and starts climbing. Dana Brooke knocks her down, then Mandy runs up the ladder and fights with Dana. Dana hangs from the chain the briefcase is on, and he knocks Mandy off the ladder. Mandy, Naomi, Nikki and Natalya all run in now and fight with Dana on the ladder. Natalya pushes the ladder over and knocks them all down to ringside. Ember Moon comes in and takes out Natalya. Mandy then takes out Ember, and it looks like Mandy is the only woman standing. She sets up a ladder, and Carmella limps back down to the ring from the back. Mandy runs out to meet Carmella on the ramp, and Carmella brawls with Mandy at ringside. Sonya gets involved, and Sonya helps a near-lifeless Mandy climb the ladder for the briefcase. Bayley runs up the ladder and pushes off both Mandy and Sonya. Bayley grabs the briefcase for the win.

Winner & new Money In The Bank contract holder: Bayley

 - Bayley does an in-ring interview after the match, where she says she reminded everyone what she's capable of.


Becky Lynch (c) vs. Charlotte Flair: The opening bell sounds and Charlotte immediately spears Becky into the corner, then starts pummeling on her. It's all Charlotte in the opening moments, until she goes up to the top rope and Becky throws her down to the mat. Charlotte and Becky trade chops to the chest now, and Charlotte gets the upper hand. Becky comes back with a kick, but when she goes for another kick, Charlotte reverses it into a Boston Crab. Becky fights out and trades punches with Charlotte now. Charlotte misses a Natural Selection attempt and she falls to ringside. Lacey Evans runs down and hits a cheap shot on Becky when the ref isn't looking. This leads to Charlotte hitting the big boot on Becky for the three count.

Winner & new SmackDown Women's Champion: Charlotte

- Becky attacks Lacey after the match and beats her down at ringside. Charlotte gets involved and attacks Becky from behind. Lacey takes Becky in the ring, and they double team Becky. Bayley runs down for the save and she suplexes Lacey out of the ring. Charlotte drops Bayley from behind, then goes back to stomping on Becky. Charlotte misses a spear and crashes into the ring post. Bayley picks up her Money In The Bank briefcase and tells the ref she's cashing it in.

- Bayley vs. Charlotte (c): The opening bell sounds and Bayley immediately goes up top and hits a flying elbow drop for the three count to win the SmackDown Women's Championship.

 
Winner & new SmackDown Women's Champion: Bayley

Gotta hand it to management. They are doing all they can to try and keep her happy so she doesn't piss off like her sulky best mate has.

It could have been booked better though as it's always heelish to cash in on a beaten down champion and she's suppose to be babyface.

Also it's known the champion has to be on their feet for a match to start, so Bayley shouldn't have been allowed to win.

No, it really could NOT have been booked better. Having her come to Becky's rescue and then decide to cash in on the heel champion who was being a cunt anyways, is probably the best possible way to book a babyface cash in.

Credit where credit is due, WWE booked this exceedingly well.

On the Wade Keller podcast this week they were saying that Bayley desperately needs a heel turn and that her current character is a turn off, I agree.

In NXT it worked, she was the loveable underdog who seemed genuinely in awe about being in WWE and being around the talent, she acted like a starstruck childhood fan and played the role well and the fans enjoyed it.
But on the main roster she seems to have a arrogance about her now which makes her unlikeable, I often skip her matches and segments as she just doesn't interest me and her matches are normally missable.

She needs a change, a new character and change of direction otherwise I think she will lose the belt soon and sink into a enhancement talent role.

Yeah, IMO she's the best in-ring of all the four horsewomen, but she's being poorly utilized. Like no one really seems to know how to manage a character like the Bayley character and it just comes off poorly. She needs to figure something out or she'll be a casualty and future endeavored soon.

On the other hand, she might be a very good fit for AEW with her normal character.

Really? I would have said shes the worst in the ring of the four women.

Bayleys matches always seem a bit flat to me, she knows what shes doing and her work is solid but she never seems to produce the match quality we've seen from Becky, Charlotte and Sasha. Even in NXT I wasnt that high on Bayley as a worker.

I think shes loyal to WWE unless something goes horribly wrong but she does need to change it up quick before the fans start really rejecting her.
