Bianca Belair defended her SmackDown Women's Championship against Bayley inside Hell In A Cell.
The two women have been feuding ever since Bianca won the title from Sasha Banks at WrestleMania 37. Belair won their first encounter at WrestleMania Backlash, but a rematch was granted after Bayley argued that she was cheated in that encounter.
Bayley would spend the weeks leading up to Hell In A Cell trying to get under Bianca's skin, laughing at her every chance she got. The EST of WWE didn't back down though, challenging Bayley to a match inside the unforgiving structure. The Role Model accepted.
Inside the Cell, Bayley used her experience to gain the upper hand, utilizing weapons and the steel structure. She would also tie Bianca's hair to the ropes and a chair but wasn't able to sustain those attacks very long. Bianca would come back strong and eventually earn the victory after planting Bayley with the K.O.D. onto a ladder.
Here is a rundown of the action:
