Tonight’s WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view kicked off with the Raw Women’s Championship match between champion Bianca Belair and challenger Becky Lynch.
This is a rematch from last year’s event when Lynch returned and shocked everyone by quickly beating Belair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship.
Belair won the match after hitting a Spanish Fly off the top and the KOD. It was the second KOD of the match as she hit it earlier on the floor but Lynch was able to get back in the ring before the 10 count. This was a great match with tons of false finishes and the fans were hot for everything.
After the match, Belair celebrated and then Lynch walked out to shake her hand. They hugged and it appears that Lynch has turned babyface, one year after her heel turn.
After Lynch left the ring, Bayley’s music played and she walked out to the ring. She was followed out by the returning Dakota Kai and Io Shirai. There was a 3 vs. 2 faceoff in the ring but no physicality because the heels backed off.
