The WWE Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair is known for her positive outlook on life, but just like anybody in pro wrestling, she has taken some hard hits too and recalled receiving a black eye during a big match.

Bianca Belair has had some huge WrestleMania moments in back-to-back years. After winning the 2021 Royal Rumble, she went on to challenge and defeat Sasha Banks in the main event of night one of WrestleMania 37. That outstanding match also won an ESPY for WWE Moment of the Year.

After losing her Smackdown Women’s Title to Becky Lynch in a shocking match at SummerSlam 2021 with Lynch winning in just 26 seconds. It took a while, but Belair bounced back.

Belair earned a title shot against Lynch at WrestleMania 38 in 2022 and that match saw Belair become the Raw Women’s Champion for the first time.

While speaking to Kenny McIntosh of Inside The Ropes, Belair shared that there was a moment in her WrestleMania match with Lynch that left Belair with a black eye. The spot when Lynch kicked Belair in the eye. Belair recalled what happened during that moment:

“Probably when Becky with the big boots hit me in the eye at WrestleMania. I still have a little bit of that black eye. It’s like still a thing, So probably WrestleMania, Becky Lynch.”

The next night on Raw, Belair showed off that black eye she received from that WrestleMania match with Lynch:

Belair beat Lynch again at SummerSlam on July 30th to put an end to that rivalry. Lynch is currently out with a shoulder injury, although she hugged Belair to show that Lynch will be a babyface and ally of Belair whenever Lynch returns to the ing.

On the September 12th edition of Raw, Belair defeated Sonya Deville to retain the Raw Women’s Title. After the match, Belair was confronted by Bayley and the Damage CTRL group, but Belair was saved by her friends Asuka & Alexa Bliss.

Since Bayley pinned Belair in a six-woman tag team match at Clash at the Castle, it’s likely that Belair will defend her title against Bayley at Extreme Rules on October 8th.
