Becky Lynch will face Bianca Belair in a RAW Women’s Title defense at WrestleMania 38. The fight was on the cards ever since Lynch beat Belair in 2021 for the SmackDown Women’s Title. Their feud, which began on the blue brand, carried over to Raw after the 2021 WWE draft.
Ahead of WrestleMania, 38 Becky Lynch and Bianca Belair faced each other on RAW in a six-woman tag team match. The match featured the team of Bianca Belair, Rhea Ripley, Liv Morgan vs Becky Lynch, Nikki A.S.H., and Doudrop.
Becky used this match to soften her WrestleMania opponent. She went for Bianca’s secret weapon, i.e. her strong long hair, which she uses as a whip in her matches.
This strategy didn’t sit well with Bianca as she brutally whipped the champion with her braid. WWE tweeted images of the after-effects of the attacks and wrote, “You know what they say about payback…
Becky Lynch retweeted and replied, “This is not a Wrestlemania preview. This is the barbaric use of an illegal weapon . At Wrestlemania I was going to beat you. But now, I will beat the sh*t out of you…. And then beat you.”
Becky Lynch paid the price for her actions tonight and will be aware of the threat of Belair’s hair whip as she prepares to live up to her promise.
Becky Lynch and Bianca Belair to make history at WrestleMania 38?
Both brands’ Women’s Title matches are scheduled for Day 1 of WrestleMania 38. However, the main event is still up in the air. If either of the women’s matches for the title serves as the main event on the first night, those two women will make history for main eventing WrestleMania twice in their career.
As of now, there are only five women who have main evented WrestleMania. Becky, Charlotte Flair, and Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 35; Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair at WrestleMania 37- the first night.
