The war between WWE and AEW is definitely ON!

Becky Lynch is the new SmackDown Women’s Champion

Initially, Sasha Banks was supposed to face Bianca Belair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship title. However, she couldn’t be present at SummerSlam 2021, and Carmella replaced her. While Belair wasn’t happy about it, she was ready to move forward with it.

However, even before they could begin, the music started and out came Becky Lynch! The crowd cheered and she hi-5’d the fans on her way to the ring. Upon entering, she ensured to dismiss Carmella first. Next, she took the mic and asked Belair if she was ready to give the WWE Universe an epic match between The EST of WWE and The Man, and Belair agreed.

The bell went off, and Lynch put her hand out to Belair for a handshake. Unfortunately, that was a trap. She attacked Belair, and put her down, pinned her, and became the new SmackDown Women’s Champion.. all of this in under a minute!

The WWE Universe and Bianca Belair were completely shocked. Belair walked away from the ring disappointed and at the verge of tears and rage.
