Belair returned on the October 20 episode of WWE SmackDown, as she saved Charlotte Flair from Damage CTRL. Belair had been absent since the trio attacked her on the August 18 episode of WWE SmackDown.
Speaking with Graham GSM Matthews of Bleacher Report, Bianca Belair discussed her return.
“I feel like I was champion for a very, very, very, very long time,” Bianca Belair said. “It’s great to be at the time, but I feel like it’s been a change of pace and Iyo Sky is amazing. It’s going to be very hard to knock her off of that throne, especially with her surrounded by Bayley and now Dakota’s back in the mix.
“It was just a change of pace for me and I’ve never wanted to mess with what I had going on because if it’s not broken, don’t fix it. I was champion for so long and it wasn’t broken. I’m not saying it’s broken now, but [I’m] just coming back with a different mentality.”
Bianca Belair Targets IYO SKY
Bianca Belair also made it clear that she is determined to win the WWE Women’s Championship. In doing so, she aims to finish her feud with Damage CTRL.
“Right now, I’m just focused on coming back and going after IYO,” Bianca Belair said. “When you’re fighting Iyo, you’re fighting three people essentially, and I’ve been fighting Damage CTRL for what feels like two years, so we’re stuck together at this point. But I’m not going anywhere.”
Belair is set to appear on the October 27 episode of WWE SmackDown. WrestleZone will coverage of the show as it airs on Friday.
