New Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair has revealed the one match type she will never compete in.
Before Bianca Belair became embroiled in her months long feud with Becky Lynch, she had been scheduled to defend her SmackDown Women’s Championship against Bayley at Money In The Bank.
The bout in July wasn’t meant to be just any match, it was going to be an I Quit Match as tension between the pair reached new heights. However, Bayley sustained a serious knee injury in a training session just prior to the match and is yet to return to action.
Ahead of her match with Lynch at WrestleMania 38, Belair spoke with SHAK Wrestling, and explained that she hoped she would get to have her match with Bayley somewhere down the line.
“Oh man, the I quit match that I was supposed to have with Bayley. I still get sad when I think about the possibilities of that match. So hopefully, we can revisit that when she comes back,”
However, Belair said that there is one stipulation that she’ll never consider, a hair vs. hair match.
“No. I don’t have an answer for that. I mean, listen, she (her braid) has her own name. I mean, the braid stays. Everything else can go. We all know the answer to this one. I don’t even want to say it because I don’t want to put it out there,”
Following Bayley’s injury, Belair ended up back in a rivalry with Sasha Banks, who she had defeated at WrestleMania 37 to win the SmackDown Women’s Championship. This led to a match being between the pair at SummerSlam, but with Banks unable to compete on the night, she was replaced by Becky Lynch who made her surprise comeback after more than a year out.
Lynch then defeated Belair in a matter of seconds to claim the gold. This began a heated feud which ran all of the way until WrestleMania 38. At the spectacular, Bianca Belair finally got her revenge for her SummerSlam loss, pinning Lynch to win the Raw Women’s Championship.
