WWE Money in the Bank 2017: Who Needs Women’s Briefcase the Most?

1 of 6

The women of WWE continue to make history as they will participate in the first women’s Money in the Bank match next Sunday.

It is an opportunity of the biggest proportions for the Smackdown ladies.  Five women will get the chance to make history as they will fight tooth and nail to capture the first women’s Money in the Bank briefcase on June 18.  The women’s division has continued to thrive in 2017, with expectations climbing to see if they can live up to the standards the Money in the Bank match provides.

What is interesting about this is that three of these women are second and third-generation Superstars – Natalya, Charlotte Flair, and Tamina will build onto their legacies next Sunday.  They have much to prove that they are the best women that could be in this match.  However, Becky Lynch and Carmella are not to be looked over as well.  Lynch has been building her own legacy since coming onto Smackdown.  She became the first Smackdown Women’s Champion followed up with engaging in a six-month feud with Alexa Bliss.  Carmella had a decent feud with Nikki Bella upon her return to the ring – she isn’t shy about doing what it takes to make it to the top of the Smackdown Women’s Division.

But who is willing to put it all on the line next Sunday night?  Who will bear the consequences of ladders and high-risk moves to get a guaranteed Championship match?  Most importantly, who will stand alone as she makes history in St. Louis?

Things are definitely firing up for the Smackdown Women’s Division which is been blowing the Raw Women’s Division away for awhile now.  It worked out perfect that Money in the Bank is a Smackdown-exclusive event for the fact that all the talent has been used properly.  Each woman is a contributing factor to the blue brand and it’s proven to work well.  It was only appropriate that the ladies are granted the same opportunities that Raw has been doing with their PPV’s, etc.

The booking must be crucial when it comes to the match and beyond.  It will set the standard for more of these matches for women in the years to come.  Additionally, the cash-in success rate is very high – only two cash-ins were unsuccessful in the twelve-year history of Money in the Bank.  A failed cash-in for the women would be detrimental to the success of the Women’s Division as a whole.
