SummerSlam 2021 was an absolute blast. John Cena and Roman Reigns brought the roof down, Brock Lesnar and Becky Lynch returned, and so much more. But, if there’s one thing that did not sit well with the WWE Universe, it’s Bianca Belair losing the WWE SmackDown Women’s Title.

Several individuals have expressed their frustration over WWE booking Becky Lynch to squash Belair in under a minute, 26 seconds to be precise, and take the title from her. One of the recent individuals who have commented about this is Ric Flair when he was on Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette.

“I didn’t like it. Sometimes, I don’t understand what they do with anybody, Ashley included. I didn’t like it at all. I thought Bianca worked so hard. She’s really a nice person. I like her husband, they seem really close. There are a lot of things that make her unique. I was hoping that someday, I think Bianca and Charlotte could be huge one day. Obviously, the two best athletes in the women’s division. That’s a whole different way of telling a story and building up to the event. Plus, the fact that they can do some stuff that no one else can.” H/t Oral Sessions With Renee Paquette

To be honest, he’s correct. Bianca Belair has done much to prove why she is worthy of the SmackDown Women’s title, and maybe squashing her wasn’t the way to go.

Bianca Belair is the number one contender for the title

After SummerSlam 2021, Becky Lynch cut a promo on SmackDown revealing that she’s going to be ruthless because now she’s not just fighting for herself, but for her family. Therefore, it’s not going to be the old Becky anymore, and she’s not sorry about anything.

At that point, Belair interrupted and told her that Lynch cannot erase her achievements within 26 seconds. Unfortunately, Lynch did not accept Belair’s challenge. On the other hand, Carmella, Liv Morgan, and Zelina Vega thought they deserved the Championship match.
