1. Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match – 2018
My personal favorite Women’s Money in the Bank match so far has to be 2018’s installment. I’d have to argue that this one featured the most star power, and quite frankly, should’ve set the standard as the first match.
This one had three of the Four Horsewomen (Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, and Sasha Banks), three former champions (Natalya, Alexa Bliss, and Naomi), plus two first-time competitors (Ember Moon and Lana).
This match benefitted from having eight competitors who were ready to take what they thought they deserved. As a result, we witnessed incredible spots from these queens. We even had a preview of what was to come when Charlotte and Becky met each other at the top of the ladder.
Even though Becky was a favorite, everything worked out perfectly for her in hindsight. Alexa Bliss pulled off the win and became the first woman to cash-in on the same night. Oddly, it was her last major pay-per-view win before spending months out of action.
Going into 2020’s anomaly of a match, it’s hard to narrow down who should walk out as the winner. It seems more likely that a Raw superstar will win based on current booking trends. Asuka may have already lost to Becky a couple of times this year, but she’s certainly the most entertaining star at the moment.
On the other hand, Nia Jax is just waiting to feud with “The Man,” and Shayna Baszler is ready to avenge her WrestleMania loss. The SmackDown stars are almost dark horses at this point. Hopefully, they can make the best of the situation and deliver a match to remember.
How would you rank the previous ladder matches? Who do you think will win this year? Sound off below!
