Today In History: Alexa Bliss Wins And Successfully Cashes In MITB Contract (June 17, 2018)

On this day in history, 2 years ago, Alexa Bliss made more history at 2018 Money In The Bank. After outsmarting seven other women to become only the second Miss MITB, Bliss didn’t waste her time to cash in the contract during the Raw Women’s Championship match between Nia Jax and Ronda Rousey. She swiftly attacked from behind, bashing Rousey in the back with the briefcase to earn Ronda a disqualification win over the champion. However, after Bliss tossed Rousey over the announce table and brutalized Nia’s arm with the briefcase, it became clear what was about to happen: The cash-in was called, a DDT and Twisted Bliss were administered, and Bliss swiftly became a five-time Women’s Champion. She became the first woman to win the contract and cash it in successfully in the same night. A year later, Bayley would do the same.
