Since Becky Lynch returned last month, she has been on the top of the division as the SmackDown Women’s Champion. Once Lynch defeated Bianca Belair at SummerSlam in 26 seconds, Belair has done everything in her power to get back to the title. She won a Fatal 4-Way to earn a rematch and she had Lynch on her toes at the contract signing.
Lynch has fired back by crashing Belair’s homecoming last week, but this week Belair got the last laugh heading into their championship match this weekend at Extreme Rules.
Belair, showing off her fashion as always with a jacket listing her successes, rattled off all the ways that she has matched The Man’s accomplishments – and in a way shorter time frame. Winning the Royal Rumble, main eventing WrestleMania, becoming SmackDown Women’s Champion…and all in the same year. She also won an ESPY.
This started to anger Lynch who claims to be the greatest woman to ever hold the SmackDown Women’s Championship. After Belair declared that she will become champion on Sunday she went for a handshake but Lynch smacked The EST right in her mouth. The two then started to brawl in the corner and Lynch went for the Manhandle Slam but Belair countered into the Kiss of Death.
Belair made her way up the ramp to end the segment.
These two battle it out on Sunday at Extreme Rules in just one of three women’s matches. The RAW Women’s Championship will be defended as Alexa Bliss challenges Charlotte Flair. And Liv Morgan will get her second singles match at a pay-per-view as she goes against Carmella.
