“I finally get my revenge on Bianca Belair. You know, for months I was sitting at home healing that wound that she did to me after she cheated with that braid,” Banks continued, explaining her absence from WWE programming in kayfabe.
“I would never drop that low if I was the champion. No, no, no, no. I brought people up,” Banks added. “Just like I brought Bianca up. Just like I helped her get an ESPY. Just like I helped her get all these accolades that she wants to claim that she’s the biggest star now.”
“She’s the EST of WWE? Well, I’m the Legit Boss, and I’m coming back for my SmackDown Women’s Championship,” Banks concluded.
Banks and Belair will be competing for the SmackDown Women’s Championship at SummerSlam, and the RAW Women’s Championship will also be on the line when Nikki A.S.H defends against Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley.
