What is next for Bianca Belair?

Thankfully, Belair can have a sigh of relief as her title reign would not get jeopardized by the MITB contract. Earlier this week on RAW, Nikki Cross A.S.H. cashed in her MITB contract on Charlotte Flair.

However, Belair has a plethora of contenders in SmackDown. Apart from Carmella, the likes of Zelina Vega, Liv Morgan, Toni Storm are more eager than ever following MITB loss.

There is no news on when The Boss would be back, although SummerSlam is a good time to make an in-ring return. Maybe we would see some other contenders turn up in the meantime. Who do you think would turn up next in line for Bianca Belair’s title?
