Bianca Belair has opened up about her 26-second loss to Becky Lynch from last year’s SummerSlam.
Following her historic win at WrestleMania 37 over Sasha Banks, The EST of WWE was scheduled for a rematch against The Boss at The Biggest Event of The Summer. But the latter’s absence led to Lynch’s return.
In a recent interview on Corey Graves’ After the Bell podcast, the RAW Women’s Champion expressed that her husband, Montez Ford, helped her get through that rough period in her career.
“So it was rough, like, um, you know, my husband, like, help check my perspective,” said Belair. “And, you know, I like hung around my family that night, and to like, cheer me up. But, you know, I just like, I always try to keep a perspective of like, okay, well, when I was champion, my thing was, I never wanted to just be about me, like, I want to be about my fans, I want people to feel some like, I wanted to be about my impact.”
Bianca Belair added that despite suffering a crushing defeat to Big Time Becks, her goal was to look at the positive side of things.
“So like, yeah, I lost SummerSlam in 26 seconds, but my impact that I have on people is gonna last way longer than 26 seconds. And so I was just trying to turn this negative into a positive. And then, for me, like, I’m all about moments, like, I want to be a part of huge moments in WWE, like the most talked about moments in WWE SummerSlam, granted, I lost 26 seconds, but my name was in the conversation of the most of the biggest moment at SummerSlam.” contiuned Belair.
