Bianca Belair was already set to challenge Bayley with her SmackDown Women’s Championship on the line this Sunday at Hell in a Cell. On tonight’s Friday Night SmackDown, Belair made the challenge for Bayley to meet her INSIDE Hell in a Cell.
The two were set to have a “face-to-face” encounter tonight but when Bayley didn’t come out to the ring when the champion requested, Belair issued the challenge. Their feud has been built around Bayley playing mind games with Belair and laughing at her weekly. This has made Belair feel the same way she did when she was younger and being bullied. Now, Bianca says she’s not that little kid anymore and she is loud, proud, and unapologetically herself.
This finally got the attention of Bayley as she marched her way to the ring. She went right after the champion but Bianca fought her off initially and tossed her outside of the ring. After slamming Bayley’s face on the announce table, the champion tossed her upcoming challenger over the barricade.
Bayley took the rest of the segment to do damage to the champion. She pulled the braid of Bianca which landed the EST right into the barricade. Back in the ring, Bayley hit a running knee to the face of Belair before hitting the Rose Plant.
Bayley then firmed stood on the braid of Bianca as she held the SmackDown Women’s Championship over her head. The Thunderdome monitors changed to the image of Bayley with the title in her hand.
Can Bayley take the title from Belair on Sunday? Or will the EST’s reign continue?
