Bianca Belair is set to defend the SmackDown Women’s Title against Sasha Banks at SummerSlam, but there are a lot of questions about that match now. Both competitors were pulled from multiple house shows, and there are many questions. Some are concerned that they might have to miss the biggest party of the summer and their big match.
During Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez covered Banks and Belair’s current situation. The company isn’t shy about falsely advertising people, but at this point there is no word about what WWE is going to do with the two popular Superstars and their high profile Las Vegas match.
We still don’t know what is going on with Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair. They were pulled from multiple events. Obviously, they were in the ring together on Friday. They were still advertising Sasha Banks vs Bianca Belair for SummerSlam both on the WWE.com website and during RAW, but of course, they advertised Charlotte for Charlotte for weeks when they knew she wasn’t going to be there. So, I don’t know if I would read anything into that. I guess we’ll see. We’ve got a SummerSlam card on Saturday.”
That reference about promoting Charlotte Flair for Charlotte was talking about this weekend’s house show. WWE granted Flair permission to have time off, but they advertised her anyway. Flair was in Mexico City for TripleMania with Andrade and her father The Nature Boy instead of at WWE’s live event.
We’re hoping for the best with Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks. As of this writing, WWE has not cancelled their match or made any alteration to the SummerSlam card.
