IYO Sky’s big moment finally came at SummerSlam as she cashed in the Money in the Bank contract and became Women’s Champion. Now the Damage CTRL member is riding quite a wave, but how much notice did she get?
Some WWE SummerSlam matches were a bit long as well. You can click here for more details on that.
Sean Sapp noted behind Fightful’s paywall that IYO Sky’s Money in the Bank cash-in at SummerSlam was not a last-minute decision. That being said, it’s unclear when they told IYO about her big win.
We’re not told how far ahead IYO SKY was informed she’d be winning the title, but we were told it wasn’t a last minute booking decision.
IYO Sky will now carry the Women’s Championship, and a very interesting situation with Bayley is certain to develop as well. Only time will tell where this is all heading, but there are several options at play.
Bianca Belair could want that title back, as a short and frustrating reign like that could only give her more motivation for a heel turn. At the same time, IYO Sky could eventually get tired of Bayley speaking for her and claiming that win as her own. As we previously reported, despite her SummerSlam cameo, Dakota Kia still has long way to go before she will make a return to the ring.
WWE is leaving things open, but they obviously have a plan. Now that IYO Sky is officially Women’s Champion, it appears that they are well on their way to getting to their desired destination.
