Bianca Belair is finally back on top. Her dream run in WWE had kicked off last year at the 2021 Royal Rumble, where she had emerged victorious in the Women’s Royal Rumble match. She capitalized on the win and went on to won the Smackdown Women’s Championship after pinning Sasha Banks in the main event of Night One of Wrestlemania Saturday.
The EST of WWE held on to the title for several months – but her reign came to a screeching halt at Summerslam 2021. Becky Lynch made her return to WWE after a maternity break and managed to pin Belair in a shocking 26-seconds! Since then, Belair and Lynch have been drafted to Raw, but the battle for the title has continued.
Bianca Belair emerged victorious in a match inside the Elimination Chamber and became the No.1 Contender for the Raw Women’s Champion. The EST of WWE and Big Time Becks collided at Wrestlemania Saturday – where after months of trying, Belair managed to win the Raw Women’s Championship!
Bianca Belair and Becky Lynch delivered one of the best matches of the night. While Belair kicked off her first reign as the Raw Women’s Champion, she walked away with some serious battle scars too. During the match, Lynch flipped off the second rope and wanted to deliver a kick to the head, but her heel ended up hitting Belair’s eye.
After the match, as Belair celebrated the win, something seemed wrong with her eye. As she appeared on the latest episode of Raw, the seriousness of the injury could be seen as Belair’s eye was completely black! You can checkout a clip of the same above.
Bianca Belair will now look for a new challenger
After picking up a decisive win over Becky Lynch, it is quite unlikely that the feud between the two Superstars would be continuing. As a result, Bianca Belair will be looking for a new challenger to step up to her. Interestingly, the choices are limited considering most of the women are currently involved in the Tag Team division.
Among the singles Superstars, Alexa Bliss is a strong contender to go after the Raw Women’s Championship. But she has been missing from WWE for quite some time now. On the other hand, WWE could decide for a surprise opponent – which could be either Bayley or Asuka.
