On the show, Belair teamed with Liv Morgan and Rhea Ripley to take on Lynch, Doudrop and Nikki A.S.H. During the bout, Lynch grabbed Belair’s braid and a tug of war ensued. Belair fought off Lynch to cease control of her hair before whipping the holy hell out of her WrestleMania 38 opponent.
The exchange sent Big Time Becks scurrying before Belair delivered the KOD to A.S.H. for the win.
The RAW Women’s Champion took to social media after the show to reveal the extent of the damage left by the EST’s attack along with a stark warning to her title challenger.
“This is not a Wrestlemania preview. This is the barbaric use of an illegal weapon . At Wrestlemania I was going to beat you. But now, I will beat the shit out of you…. And then beat you.”
Lynch and Belair face off the RAW women’s title at Night 1 of Wrestlemania 38 after the EST was victorious at Elimination Chamber in Saudi Arabia last month.
The rivalry between the two WrestleMania headline winners began at last year’s SummerSlam. Lynch made her long-awaited return to WWE to defeat Belair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship in just 26-seconds.
Since the controversial win, Lynch has rubbed the victory in Belair’s face multiple times and cost her a number one contender shot against Doudrop. Belair now has her chance to get revenge on Lynch at the biggest wrestling show of the year.
