If you’re reading this, you’re fully aware that I am a big fan of the women’s revolution that has gone in the WWE. After the recent Superstar Shake-Up, I’m less hot on the Raw side. But the Smackdown side is killing it right now. All six women in the division; Naomi, Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Carmella, Natalya and Tamina Snuka are all very unique with their own personalities. Sure there are some such as Tamina who have yet to really shine but you can see the potential there. I was getting a little wary of the women’s wrestling in the WWE once again as they were all frequently put into multi woman matches and individuality was not let to shine. But after the most recent Smackdown exclusive pay per view or event, it was announced there would be a five woman multi match to determine a number one contender.
The day finally came and the match didn’t even officially get started. Instead all women immediately started brawling with one another. It was clear that they were out to make a highlight of the night and they achieved that. All of the women got a moment to shine during the brawl. It ultimately culminated with Charlotte putting Natalya through a table (with Natalya breaking character with a grin on her face as she heard the cheers).
The Smackdown Commissioner Shane McMahon came out and quickly announced that all of the women involved would be in the first ever woman Money in the Bank match. I’ve never actually seen a Money in the Bank match other than highlights on YouTube and such. This will be my first time watching not one but two Money in the Bank matches and one is making history. The following week, the women even got their own Money in the Bank briefcase (which has a feminine touch to it).
Becky, Charlotte and Natalya are the three that I am not worried about. Those three are some of the best performers working in the WWE at the moment. Though I have only seen her in action in small bits, Tamina should do just fine in the match as well. The biggest question mark is Carmella. Now I don’t think she’s the worst wrestler but she falls somewhere in the middle. This will be a true test to what she can bring to the table. If her performance in the skirmish is anything to go by, she should be okay. Plus I expect her to win because she has that x-factor in James Ellsworth by her side.
Either way it should make for an interesting match to say the least. It might be bad all things considered but that doesn’t take away the importance of the match. As the women’s roster continues to grow and grow, it is only a matter of time before we start seeing specialty matches that have been exclusive to the men become part of the women’s roster as well. I have been saying for some time I think there should be a midcard and tag team belt in the women’s roster. Now it is only a matter of time before that happens.
