The EST of WWE is still smarting from losing to Becky Lynch at SummerSlam last year and losing her SmackDown Women’s title to Big Time Becks in just twenty-six seconds – something she’s yet to avenge.
Speaking ahead of Elimination Chamber this weekend, Belair admits that she wouldn’t be happy if she wasn’t the one to take the Raw Women’s Championship off Becky Lynch, as she prepares to defend it against Lita on Saturday.
“It would be a cool moment to see Lita as champion again, reaping the benefits of all the work she’s sewn for the women’s division. I think she has a great chance. But I can’t lie, I want Becky to win! Only because I want to be the person to take the Title off of her at WrestleMania. I will be upset if I’m not the one that gets the chance to take the Title off Becky!”
Belair will be a busy woman herself at Elimination Chamber, stepping into the structure for the first time to take on Liv Morgan, Doudrop, Rhea Ripley, Nikki A.S.H. and Alexa Bliss, with a title shot at WrestleMania on the line. And the 32-year-old sees the match as the perfect way to book her ticket back to a championship match at WrestleMania.
“I know what it feels like to be at WrestleMania. I know what it feels like to become champion at WrestleMania. I had a great year with so much momentum after becoming champion…and to have that taken away in 26 seconds at SummerSlam…it was tough. I tried to keep my perspective positive and keep my head up, but at the end of the day it was taken away from me, so it would mean the world to me to bring it full circle and be able to become champion again at WrestleMania.”
The women’s Elimination Chamber match is just one of Saturday’s massive matches, on a card that sees Roman Reigns take on Goldberg for the Universal Championship and Bobby Lashley defending the WWE Title inside the Elimination Chamber against Brock Lesnar, AJ Styles, Riddle, Seth Rollins and Austin Theory.
