Nikki Bella Admits She Was Not A Fan Of The Manner In Which Bianca Belair Lost At WWE SummerSlam

Nikki Bella did not have a favorite moment from SummerSlam. She did have a least favorite one, though.

Speaking with Scott Fishman, the WWE Hall of Famer admitted that she was made frustrated by the SmackDown Women's Championship being lost in under a minute. She said the following:

"I can tell you what wasn't my favorite moment, and it was when she [Biance Belair] lost. That definitely was not my favorite moment. I don't know if I actually had a favorite moment because, you know, I always back the women and I'm always for the women and you have someone like Bianca, who's such an incredible talent, and you can't help but get frustrated when you see moments like that, of a championship that meant so much, and was lost within seconds. So I have to admit, for this SummerSlam, there truly wasn't anything that was my favorite."

At SummerSlam, Bianca Belair was scheduled to face Sasha Banks, but after the EST of WWE made her entrance, it was announced that The Boss would be unable to compete. After Carmella came out, seemingly as Belair's new opponent, Becky Lynch made her long-awaited return to the ring. The Man had been out of action since May 2020 when she announced her pregnancy.

After tossing Carmella out of the ring, Lynch challenged Belair to a title match, one which was accepted. A mere 30 seconds after the bell sounded, Becky delivered one punch and a ManHandle Slam to win the match and belt.

Bianca Belair first won the SmackDown Women's Title in the main event of WrestleMania 37 (Night One) against Sasha Banks. That same weekend, Nikki and Brie Bella were inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.
