As noted earlier, Sasha Banks was not expected to wrestle SmackDown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair at WWE SummerSlam. Banks was not at SmackDown last night and she was not at last weekend’s live events. The reason given by WWE was that she was out due to “unforeseen circumstances.”
Before the match got started, Becky Lynch’s music played and she walked out to the ring. This is Lynch’s first appearance on WWE TV since she left in April of 2020 because of her pregnancy.
UPDATE: Lynch won the title with the Manhandle slam.
