IYO SKY cashed in her Money in the Bank contract at WWE SummerSlam and became the Women’s Champion.
Last night, the former champion Asuka was in a match with Bianca Belair and Charlotte Flair. The match was called a “Triple Threat Match.” Belair won the title and became the new winner at the end of the match.
But just seconds later, SKY and Bayley made their way to the ring, and the women on the ramp and in the ring were taken out by the Damage CTRL team. The Genius of the Sky then took advantage of the situation and did a moonsault over Belair. SKY became the new king when he pinned The EST.
After winning her first singles title on the main team, SKY posted a heartfelt message on Twitter.

“Wanting to become “the best in the world”, he threw away the “best in Japan” position he had at the time and flew to America. I crossed the sea thinking that I was mentally and physically stronger than anyone else, but the wall in the world was so high that I was knocked down in an instant by such arrogance. I tried to say (or rather, said) “I can’t do it anymore”, but each time I remembered the faces of everyone who cheered me on and managed to endure it. I cling desperately and build up little by little, and in a foreign land, I finally reached number one in the world today. “Being number one in the world” was my dream, but it is definitely thanks to everyone that I was able to make it come true. Everyone in Japan, everyone in America, everyone in the world, thank you so much.” wrote SKY
