Bianca Belair Describes Becky Lynch's WWE SummerSlam Return As "Bittersweet"

Belair lost her title on Saturday

Bianca Belair has described Becky Lynch's WWE return at SummerSlam as "bittersweet."

The Man had been off TV for over a year to have her first child, but she was revealed as Sasha Banks' last-minute replacement for SummerSlam. Lynch then faced Bianca Belair and pinned her within 25 seconds to win the SmackDown Women's Championship.

Speaking to Denise Salcedo of Instinct Culture at the SummerSlam after-party, seemingly in character, Belair admitted she was trying to wrap her head around what had happened during the pay-per-view.

"Right now, I'm just trying to collect my thoughts and get my mind together. Everything happened quickly and so fast. I was ready to fight Sasha Banks, and Becky came out, which was an amazing moment and I'm happy to be part of that moment, but I lost my title and right now, I'm just emotional and trying to wrap my mind around it. I have to be honest, I feel defeated right now and okay with being vulnerable and being honest about that. I'm ready to get my title back," Belair said.

Commenting on the moment she heard Lynch's music, Belair added: "It was bittersweet. Becky Lynch, what she's accomplished inside and outside the ring, she's The Man and a legend in the making. It was bittersweet to know she was coming out and to hear that pop from the crowd and hear the vibration from the WWE Universe, it's nothing like you've ever felt before. So to be in the ring and feel all of that was amazing, but at the same time, I was the SmackDown Women's Champion and I knew she was coming for my title. It was bittersweet and I can't help but to be a little sad about the situation and ready to get back in there and get my rematch because I deserve a rematch."

Belair was originally scheduled to defend her title against Sasha Banks, but The Boss was unable to compete at SummerSlam. 

Even though she doesn't have the SmackDown Women's Title anymore, Belair still wants to face Banks for a second time. 

"Tonight, it couldn't happen with Sasha Banks, but coming soon it will be a point in time where it will be Sasha Banks and I in the ring again. We're gonna definitely finish what we started off. It's been a tough couple of weeks with Sasha Banks and I was ready to put an end to her tonight. Whenever that time happens, I'm gonna be ready to put an end to her again and then move over onto Becky," Belair stated.
