To settle the score once and for all, the women faced each other on the go-home edition of SmackDown (29/1/21) before Royal Rumble. For the uninitiated, both women will be participating in the 30-women Battle Royale.

Coming back to SmackDown, Bayley announced before the match that she would send Belair to the “darkEST hole in her life” after defeating her. Belair made her entrance first, and Bayley followed.

Both women taunted each other in the beginning before Bayley took charge and exploited the arm of Belair. Last week, ‘the Role Model’ had slammed Belair’s arm into a basketball post.

Bayley went for pin attempts with quick offenses, but Belair broke out of it each time. After some more pin attempts from Bayley, Bianca took control.

Bayley was trying to target her arm, but a resilient Bianca hit the ‘Role Model’ with a standing moonsault for a close two count. Bayley and Belair locked horns once again as we cut to commercials.

Bianca Belair got the biggest win of her career

Back from the break, Bayley faced some more pain as she was slammed face-first on the mat. However, Bayley got an opening when she slammed her knee onto Belair for a close two count.

Despite Bayley’s efforts, Bianca Belair got a clean win after delivering a huge KOD. Following the match, Belair celebrated the biggest win of her career so far.

She joined Kayla Braxton on the ramp for a quick interview. She said, “This is the biggest win of my career. But I’m not stopping at Bayley. The Only thing that could top beating Bayley, is winning the Women’s Battle Royale and being the EST at WrestleMania.

Last year, Belair came out in the Rumble at number 2 and eliminated eight participants before the eventual winner Charlotte Flair eliminated her.

In this year’s Royal Rumble, 12 out of the 30 women are confirmed so far and in the men’s match, 17 are confirmed. Do you think Bianca can have her WrestleMania moment this year after winning the Battle Royale? Let us know in the comments below.
