One of the most anticipated women's matches of the night in Hell in a Cell was undoubtedly the one valid for the Raw Women's Champion title, with the champion Bianca Belair who was called to defend her belt from the attack of not one but two opponents: Becky Lynch and Asuka.
Until the eve of the PPV, however, this feud had important criticisms from fans and insiders, since the WWE did not commit itself too much to the preparation and construction of the feud, so much so that even the WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray had lashed out at the company, saying: "Whether he doesn't care about Asuka or Asuka goes over in the PPV.
Dave this is a way to get all three women on TV before the Hell in a Cell event, right? Are we one week from the event? Here we go, it's a way to have all three women there and carry on the whole story, without making any effort."
Bianca Belair is a true champion
As many fans already expected on the eve of the PPV, to keep the belt was Bianca Belair, with the WWE champion who won the three-way contest against her opponents, thanks to a robbery pin on the Japanese Asuka.
After undergoing Becky Lynch's Manhandle Slam, in fact, Asuka was pinned by Bianca Belair, with the champion who managed to end the contest that went on for almost half an hour, to the delight of the fans of the company, who lived the match intensely, from start to finish.
Becky Lynch had also come very close to winning, when hitting the champion with her finisher she reminded everyone of the last Summerslam, when she pinned the former Smackdown champion in a few seconds, tearing her belt after a few months of reign from Wrestlemania.
This time, however, the Irishman's victory was not repeated, with Bianca keeping her red show champion belt firmly at her hips. On the latest episode of the After The Bell podcast, host Corey Graves noted that Belair is now wearing more than one braid.
With two opponents vying for her title on Sunday, he questioned whether The EST has a special plan for Asuka and Lynch. “This is the debut,” Belair said. “I had to do something new for you guys, so I came through with the two braids.
This is the debut of the two braids. Now you’re starting something [asking if we will see two braids at Hell in a Cell]. I don’t [know]. First we gotta get this one a name because the one braid, her name was Destiny”.
