Becky Lynch To Defend Title Against Bianca Belair
The first time Becky Lynch and Bianca Belair faced each other, the match lasted only 23 seconds. It was an impromptu match, one not announced ahead of time and one that Belair had no idea was about to happen. It was at SummerSlam, and Lynch was making her return to the ring after taking time off for the birth of her first child.
Lynch sucker-punched a surprised Belair and gave her the Manhandle Slam. Within seconds, Belair had lost the title she had won at WrestleMania. Now she'll get a chance to take the RAW Women's Championship away from Becky at this year's WrestleMania. Scroll down to reveal what led to these two being pitted against each other once again.

Bianca Belair won the women's Elimination Chamber match in Saudi Arabia over the weekend. She last eliminated a returning Alexa Bliss to earn the victory. Much like she had done last year when she won the Royal Rumble, Belair earned the right to challenge the champion at WrestleMania.
Later in the show, Becky Lynch would defend her title against Lita to determine who will move on to WrestleMania as the champion. Lynch came away from that match the winner and with that, the rematch between Belair and Lynch was set.
