Bianca Belair was set to face Sasha Banks with the SmackDown Women’s Title on the line at SummerSlam, but The Boss was pulled from the event. Becky Lynch filled in and the EST of WWE lost her title after a cheap shot and one Manhandle Slam. That was a decision that caused a lot of controversy within the fan base, and Belair isn’t okay with it either.
While speaking to WNML, Belair commented on her feelings about that loss at SummerSlam. Her time in Allegiant Field was met with disappointment, but she intends to regain that title from a heel Becky Lynch.
“I’m still very hurt by how I did lose the title at SummerSlam. I was excited to get in there with Becky. I wasn’t expecting the title match to happen so quickly. Right now, I’m just trying to regain what I lost as quickly as possible. Just as quickly as I lost, I’m trying to gain it back. Becky has been ducking and dodging me, I finally got her to sign the contract for my rematch. I know that if we really go toe-to-toe in a long match, the outcome is going to be different. I’m excited for that.”
Those comments might have been in character, but they were also spoken with passion. It’s hard to believe that the real person isn’t a bit upset along with her televised persona.
WWE booked a SmackDown Women’s Title match with Lynch vs Belair for their September 22nd Extreme Rules event. We will have to see if Bianca Belair pulls down the gold, but she certainly has a lot of determination to reclaim that top spot. She also doesn’t appreciate Becky Lynch’s heel ways in the process.
