WWE Smackdown caught up as Kayla Braxton interviewed Bianca Belair about splitting her focus so close to her match against Sasha Banks.
Belair said she was wondering when she’d get to see the real Banks, and the Legit Boss showed up after she slapped the soul out of her body.
She wants to face the real Banks, the one that’ll do whatever it takes to win.
She then said Carmella has a huge chip on her shoulder and it’s her fault they have to deal with Reginald, so she’s not looking past her, she’s going through her.
Carmella vs. Bianca Belair
Carmella attacked Belair as she climbed into the ring and threw her into the barricade, and then the steel ring steps before mocking her as Belair rolled around in pain as we headed to commercial.
Back from commercial, Carmella had Belair in a sleeper hold or headlock and was on Belair’s back and Belair slammed her into the corner several times to break the hold.
Carmella climbed into the ropes and locked in a leg scissors, but Belair pulled her up, forcing Carmella to hit a hurricanranna and a bronco buster for a near pinfall.
Carmella then tied Belair’s hair to the bottom rope and stomped her down.
Belair hit a clothesline and another before hitting a dropkick and then she hammered away on her. She faked out hitting Carmella with her hair and caught her with a kick and a right.
Belair then somersaulted off the ropes for a splash but Carmella rolled away.
Carmella then hit a superkick for a near pinfall.
Carmella mocked Belair, saying she was the best, and Belair hit the KOD for the win.
Well, that was anti-climactic.
Banks then attacked Belair from behind and Belair spun away and told her to wait until WrestleMania, not today.
The match was rough at best and the ending removed Banks as threatening in any way. This could’ve/should’ve been planned so much better.
King Corbin’s promise
Backstage, King Corbin said he’s tired of the disrespect he gets on Smackdown, so when he heard about Bobby Lashley’s offer for a championship match if he takes out Drew McIntyre, he decided to grab it.
He promised to take McIntyre out and face Lashley at WrestleMania.
Apollo Crews said none of his Nigerian ancestors ever faced the amount of disrespect Big E showed him at Fastlane, and this time they’ll do it right.
He challenged Big E to a Nigerian Drum Fight at WrestleMania and there will be no rules or limitations.
WWE Smackdown Results are looking forward to this match. It should be a good one.
