Bianca Belair had a WWE SummerSlam to forget in 2021.
Belair entered the night at the WWE SmackDown Women's Champion and was expecting to face Sasha Banks. Instead, she was greeted by Carmella and then a returning Becky Lynch, who quickly dethroned Bianca to win the SmackDown Women's Title.
Speaking to Peter Rosenberg on Cheap Heat, Bianca reflected on her experience at WWE SummerSlam and dealing with the loss to Lynch.
"SummerSlam, that was a day. That whole day was so chaotic. Everything was so last minute. This one sitting beside me here [Montez Ford] really kept me intact and constantly checked my perspective. I was champion and then to lose my title in 26 seconds, it's a hard blow, especially because I feel like I was just getting started and it got snatched away so quickly. It's a marathon and usually, I don't go online and look at comments, but after my mom was like, 'You have to go online, people are rooting for you.' They got behind me even more and were mad about it. My fans understand and see something special in me and want to see me thrive and are rooting for me. My perspective, I just have to keep that in mind and know that I want to be the best at what I do, whether that's going out there and performing and putting on a great show no matter who I'm in a match with and have great chemistry with them. What's for me will be for me and nobody can stop that. The cream is gonna rise to the top and I'm gonna eventually get back to the top," she said.
Belair had a chance to get the Raw Women's Title from Lynch on the November 1 episode of WWE Raw, but was once again defeated.
Belair competed in the five-on-five women's elimination match at WWE Survivor Series, representing Team Raw. You can find Fightful's full report on WWE Survivor Series by clicking here.
