The MITB match ended in a controversial way with James Ellsworth handing away the briefcase to his partner, Carmella
The first-ever Money in the Bank match for the women’s division was held back in June 2017.
Five women from Smackdown Live got to compete in it, creating history. The match ended in a controversial way with James Ellsworth handing away the briefcase to his partner, Carmella was declared as the winner of the match.
But, the angle continued as all the women in the match kept in complaining about this for weeks to come. Hence, a second Money in the Bank match was held on Smackdown Live where Carmella won again with the help of James Ellsworth to cement her name in the history books of the WWE, permanently.
Now, all of these happened a long time ago on WWE programming. In between this, we have barely seen her on WWE TV programming. She has nowhere to be found on Smackdown on a weekly basis. Furthermore, she is yet to achieve the status of a champion on the women’s roster. So, the question remains as to what will happen to her contract.
Recently, Brad Sheperd gave an update on a potential cash-in by Carmella. While talking about the same topic on Backstage in WWE, famed pro wrestling journalist stated there are chances that she might have to cash it in at Wrestlemania. He had received the update from the insider sources about this current planning, (quoted courtesy Bodyslam.net)
“Carmella, I’m told could very well cash in her Money in the Bank at WrestleMania and lose.”
As you can see, the source stated the former Lakers Girl would not be able to win the championship on that night. The creative team of the same had already informed her in recent times. Apparently, she does not have any problem with the decision taken by the officials. These are the further updates from the source,
“Well apparently from what I’ve heard she’s okay with it. She’s down to do it. She basically knows Asuka is going to be champ and she doesn’t have a chance of winning the championship from her so it’s kinda like, “You might as well make the most of losing. Why not WrestleMania?”
If this does happen at Wrestlemania, then it is going to be the first-time ever that two Money in the Bank winners will fail to cash-in their contracts in the same year.
Previously, Baron Corbin lost his contract in the same way after he failed to beat Jinder Mahal just before the Summerslam PPV. John Cena acted as the distractor, on this occasion.
