Sasha Banks made a statement in the Last Chance Women’s Money in the Bank Qualifying Gauntlet Match, outlasting six other Superstars to secure the final spot in the Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match.
Sasha Banks claimed that winning a Gauntlet Match would come down to “guts, skill and luck.” The Boss hit the nail on the head there: Thanks to all three of those intangibles, Banks won the Last Chance Gauntlet Match to earn the final opening in Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match.
Initially, the match looked as though it was Bayley’s to lose after the confident Huggable One immediately pinned Liv Morgan (No. 2) and outlasted Sarah Logan (No. 3), but a two-on-one attack teed her up for elimination at the hands of Ruby Riott (No. 4). Ruby took control of the match from there, eliminating a game Dana Brooke (No. 5) and rolling up hometown hero Mickie James (No. 6) with a handful of tights before Banks came calling at No. 7.
By this time, Riott was worn down and fighting on wobbly legs, and The Riott Squad quickly returned to their leader’s side once The Boss locked in the Bank Statement down the stretch. But Banks sprang with a quick rollup in the chaos and reapplied the excruciating Bank Statement to get the tapout win and earn entry into the Money in the Bank Match. Chalk that win up to guts and skill. Let’s see if her luck holds up.
