Becky Lynch had the opportunity to get back the WWE Raw Women’s Championship from Bianca Belair at this year’s WWE Hell in a Cell Premium Live Event. Lynch defeated Asuka on WWE Raw to earn the right to challenge for the title tonight in Chicago.

Just a few days ago, Bianca Belair successfully defended the WWE Raw Women’s Championship against Sonya Deville on WWE Raw. And this time, she has successfully defended her title at WWE Hell in a Cell 2022. But here, she got the victory in a unique manner. Belair robbed Becky Lynch of the win tonight.

‘The EST of WWE’ earned the victory via pinfall. But she did not hit her finisher, K.O.D, on her opponents. In fact, she did not have to hit any of her moves at the last moment of the match. She got the pinfall victory after Lynch hit the Manhandle Slam on Asuka.

Towards the end, Asuka locked in the Asuka Lock submission to hold on Big Time Becks. Bianca Belair broke it and ‘The Empress of Tomorrow’ then tried to take out Belair with the hip attack.

However, the WWE Raw Women’s Champion showed her strength and countered it. She lifted Asuka and threw her right at the corner turnbuckle.

In the meantime, Lynch recovered and came back right into the action. She caught Belair and threw her outside. Soon after that, Big Time Becks executed the Manhandle Slam on Asuka.

Further, Lynch looked destined for the win after she hit her finishing move on ‘The Empress of Tomorrow’. But before she could successfully pin Asuka, Belair came back into the ring and threw Lynch outside. The EST of WWE then pinned Asuka for a successful three count to continue her reign as the WWE Raw Women’s Champion.

It might not be the ideal way Bianca Belair would have wanted to win this match. However, a win is a win, and she is still the WWE Raw Women’s Champion.

Not only that time, Asuka broke the pinfall on Belair on a couple of other occasions as well. Sometimes, a triple threat match can become a disadvantage for the champion. But this time, it looked like the triple threat rules played a key role in Bianca Belair’s recent title defense.
