– Sasha Banks made a statement in the Last Chance Women’s Money in the Bank Qualifying Gauntlet Match on Raw, outlasting six other Superstars to secure the final spot in the Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match. In this post-match interview with Mike Rome, Banks basks in her Gauntlet Match victory and says she plans on becoming a five-time Raw Women’s Champion.
To kick off the match, Bayley 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 Dana Brooke (No. 5) and rolling up Richmond, Virginia’s Mickie James (No. 6) with a handful of tights before Banks came calling at No. 7. Banks then forced Riott to submit to the Bank Statement.
