At the start of the segment, Bianca Belair was in the ring with Kayla Braxton. Consequently, the latter congratulated Belair for keeping the title with her for 100 days and asked how she sees the next 100 days playing out.

Belair then thanked the crowd for their support and explained how she loved defending the title at Rolling Loud, winning an ESPY Award, and main eventing WrestleMania 37.

However, she was interrupted by Carmella who came out with a microphone and said that the 100 days milestone is nothing. She later said that the champ should give another title shot to a woman who has previously held the championship for 130 days.

Post that, Zelina Vega came out and interrupted Carmella, saying that she should “better slow her roll” and added that losers should not get second chances.

As she entered the ring, she addressed Belair and said that WWE Universe wants to see Belair challenge a rising star like Vega. She then challenged the champ to which Belair said “she’s on!”. Carmella then hit Belair from behind and teamed up with Zelina for a 2 on 1 action against the champion.

To everyone’s surprise, Sasha Banks made her surprise return to a huge pop and ran to the aid of Belair dropping Carmella first, then Vega. The former champion then cleaned house and helped Belair get back up and held Belair’s arm in the air as she the champ looked visibly confused.
