Bianca Belair Details What John Cena Told Her After WWE SummerSlam Loss To Becky Lynch

Use the moment to propel forward

While fans were happy to see Becky Lynch upon her return at SummerSlam 2021, that excitement quickly turned to bemusement after Big-Time Becks defeated Bianca Belair in 26 seconds to win the SmackDown Women's Championship, with criticism being aimed at WWE's booking. 

Belair caught up with John Cena - who challenged Roman Reigns for the Universal Title at the show - backstage following her loss and she revealed what the 16-time world champion told her while speaking to talkSPORT

"I really got to talk with John Cena a lot after the 26 seconds moment at SummerSlam. He really just gave me a lot of great advice and keep the right perspective of everything. Basically the gist of what he said was 'moments like this you can really use to propel you. You see how much the fans really get behind you.' For me, out of that, I was able to look at the longer picture, the bigger picture and hopefully one day it'll come back full circle, who knows," Belair said.

"But for me, I took it as you can use this as an opportunity to show who you are without that title. I'm still the EST of WWE and I'm still going to go out there and show out every single time I step in the ring and you really get to see who's behind you. Ironically, I think that moment really propelled me and made me a bigger star."

Following the loss, Belair was drafted to Monday Night Raw along with Lynch and she went on to unsuccessfully challenge The Man for her gold. Belair has the opportunity to earn another shot at the title on Saturday, though, in an Elimination Chamber match.
