Becky Lynch should win the women's Money in the Bank Ladder Match in 2018
With Becky Lynch floundering in the Smackdown Women's Division, a win in the Money in the Bank match could give her a second win
With the Money in the Bank pay-per-view around the corner, and along with it coming the Women's Money in the Bank match, there isn't a better option to have won the match this year than Becky Lynch.
Lynch, who was the first ever Smackdown Women's Champion in 2016, is arguably the most likeable and underrated woman on the entire WWE roster. However, since dropping the belt and failing to regain it, she has been overshadowed by other women like Charlotte, Naomi, Alexa Bliss, Carmella, and others. If she was to win the Money in the Bank match though, that could all turn around.
If Lynch were to win the Money in the Bank contract, not only will it put her back into the spotlight, but it could open up the doors for many storylines for her. The main storyline that I have in mind for Lynch would involve cashing in on Charlotte and a heel turn. If you remember, a couple of weeks ago on Smackdown, Lynch was confronted backstage by Absolution and they called Lynch "Charlotte's sidekick."
It could mean nothing, but if Lynch goes on to win the contract next month, that can be used in their story. Lynch has also gone on the record in interviews in the past saying she would want to be a heel one day, so this would be the best time to do it.
While Charlotte is much better as a heel than a face, we have seen her as a heel for a while, and she still has some traction as a face. Lynch, on the other hand, I feel has done everything she can as a face, and a heel turn will do wonders for her career. If Charlotte wins the title back from Carmella, which I see happening as I don't see Carmella being a long-term champion.
Down the line, Lynch can cash in on Charlotte, and after she cashes in she can say that she is tired of being overshadowed by Charlotte and that it is her time to be in the spotlight.
I mentioned in a previous article that no one on the Women's roster was built up well enough to beat Asuka except Charlotte. The same can be said here that no one is built up well enough or doesn't need the contract, everyone that is except Becky Lynch. A win next month in Chicago and a heel turn after she cashes in can give her a second wind.
