WWE has officially confirmed the SmackDown Women’s Championship match for Money in the Bank 2022 event.
The Champion Ronda Rousey will defend the title against Natalya at the show.
Natalya won the 6-pack challenge #1 contenders match two weeks back at SmackDown. The match also involved Shayna Baszler, Raquel Gonzalez, Shotzi, Aliyah and Xia Li. Natalya pinned Shotzi to get the win. At the time, WWE only announced that Natalya will get a future title shot.
Last week on SmackDown, Ronda Rousey came out and said she will face Natalya at Money in the Bank. Ronda went on to defend the title against Shotzi later in the show. Natalya attacked Ronda after that match, which led to Ronda getting injured and getting treatment in the trainer’s room.
Later in a post-show interview, Natalya said she will decide when its time to fight. WWE did not confirm or deny the match at that time. The confirmation only came on Monday after WWE RAW.
RAW Women’s Championship match between Bianca Belair and Rhea Ripley is already confirmed for the show last week. Money in the Bank 2022 will take place on July 2, 2022, at MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas, NV.
We will keep you updated with the latest news from the event.
