Before the announcement, Belair appeared in an interview with Kayla Braxton. She reiterated how winning the Royal Rumble changed her life. Braxton then asked her if she was ready to make the ultimate decision.

Belair said how people warned her to take her time and think about her opponent at WrestleMania, but the ‘EST’ knew who she wanted to face. That is why she was on SmackDown after all.

During the segment, Belair praised both the RAW and SmackDown Women’s Champions, but she knew that if she wanted to put the ‘EST’ at WrestleMania, she had to face one particular woman.

Just when she was about to announce her WrestleMania opponent, Reginald, Carmella’s associate, interrupted the segment. He asked her to think about her decision once again.

Carmella came out next and bragged about beating Banks twice and said, she can do the same to Belair as well.

The Boss‘ entered the ring. She applauded Belair for winning the Royal Rumble and said that she had been noticing Bianca for the past few weeks.

While Banks agreed that Belair is the strongest and the best, she believes that Belair is far from the best. Banks claimed that Belair won’t be the best until she gets the WWE SmackDown Women’s title.

Banks said, “So if you’re gonna choose me, then choose me. Because you have it all, but you don’t have this.” Bianca was again on the verge of announcing her opponent when Reginal interrupted again.

This time, he proclaimed Bianca got lucky at the Rumble, but if she chooses Sasha Banks, Bianca will lose. After hearing Reginald’s ‘over-excitement’ for a while, Belair had had enough and started whipping Reginald with her hair.

While Belair seems very confident about her WrestleMania opponent, she might want to change her mind. After all, everyone wants a title win at the biggest show of them all.

It could also become a triple threat match between Carmella, Banks, and Bayley. After today, we are sure that Reginald will play a more prominent role in the future matches of Carmella.
