WWE continues to build the card for the upcoming WrestleMania Backlash premium live event. It was previously announced that Charlotte Flair would defend the SmackDown Women’s Championship against Ronda Rousey in an I Quit match. Cody Rhodes will also take on Seth Rollins in another WrestleMania 38 rematch. Today, WWE announced another addition to the show.
Bianca Belair will take on Sonya Deville for the Raw Women’s Championship. Sonya attacked Bianca on this week’s Raw. Now, Bianca is out for revenge.
Belair defeated Becky Lynch at WrestleMania to regain the title she lost when Becky returned at SummerSlam last year. Bianca had a huge celebration, as her birthday fell right after Mania. Montez Ford even gifted Belair a boat.
Sonya Deville’s position as an authority figure in WWE adds some intrigue to the matchup. Bianca will be playing the fan-favorite who has to take on the corporate machine. It’s a classic WWE storyline that will now play out at Backlash.
Sonya Deville teased that she had an opponent for Bianca Belair on this week’s Raw. Adam Pearce asked who it would be. Sonya said she didn’t have time to talk and stormed off.
Bianca Belair beat Queen Zelina in a short match. Afterward, Sonya announced that she was Bianca’s next opponent after the sneak attack. Now the match is official, and the two will square off at WrestleMania Backlash for the title.
