WWE Raw women's champion Becky Lynch had a huge announcement to make on the opening of Monday Night Raw on May 11, 2019. Becky Lynch, the Raw women's champion, came out to the ring along with the MITB briefcase, that Asuka won the previous night, to state that she the night wasn't 'ordinary. Becky Lynch said, " I am torn between joy and sadness coz I am at a place in my life where things are about to change and I had to do something about it."

Becky Lynch revealed that she asked WWE's decision-makers to raise the stakes at the Money In The Bank ladder match for a WWE title contract. A fuming Asuka entered the ring surprised as to why does Becky have the MITB briefcase. It was then when Becky Lynch revealed details that the MITB match was not for a contract at a WWE title shot but in fact, was for the Raw women's champion. Becky Lynch then went on to say that she cannot fight now and that Asuka is the new Raw women's champion.
