The match was set up on Monday’s episode of Raw after Belair beat Zelina Vega in a quick bout. Deville came out to the ring to discuss who Belair's next opponent would be and ran down a long list of potential title challengers. Belair said she was ready to face any of them.
Deville had an open contract in her hand and Belair signed it without knowing who her opponent would be. This led to Deville attacking her from behind after making it seem like Belair’s opponent was about to make their entrance.
