Banks is the current Smackdown Champion. 2021 Royal Rumble winner, Bianca Belair has hinted that she might be coming after her title. We might see Banks and Belair battle it out for the Championship at Wrestlemania 37.

But Banks also has to take care of Carmella and her assistant, Reginald. Carmella, recently, has been trying to win the Championship, but has been unsuccessful so far. The feud with Carmella involved a mixed match too. Banks faced Reignald in a match, in which she picked up a comfortable win.

So far, Banks has not been announced to appear on WWE’s upcoming PPV, Elimination Chamber.
