Bianca Belair Doesn’t Want Her 26-second Loss To Becky Lynch To Define Her Legacy

In 2021, Bianca Belair had a remarkable year. When she beat Bayley at Hell in a Cell to become the first-ever female winner of the Royal Rumble, she became just the second black wrestler in history to do so. She was subsequently defeated by Becky Lynch at SummerSlam, and all of her momenta looked to be interrupted by Lynch’s comeback.

This weekend’s Elimination Chamber pay-per-view features WWE superstar Bianca Belair, who recently went on My Love Letter To Wrestling to discuss her goals after losing the SmackDown women’s championship to Becky Lynch at last year’s SummerSlam in only 26 seconds.

“I say I want to show who I am. Without the title, I feel like I’ve done that. But now it’s time for me to get the title back. That doesn’t mean I don’t want the title, I definitely do and that’s definitely the goal,” Bianca said. “At the end of the day, I’m checking my perspective and trying to stay positive after SummerSlam. But I, at the end of the day, still have that feeling of I want to come full circle, and I want to get my redemption and rewrite the history of the 26 seconds,” said The EST of WWE.

She claims that she does not want her 26-second defeat against Becky Lynch to be associated with her legacy.

“So that’s definitely my goal, going into Elimination Chamber and trying to win and hopefully, bring things back full circle and go back to WrestleMania, I feel like I had a great year, and I just don’t want my legacy to be trumped by the 26 seconds, I want to overcome that and just, too, be an inspiration for other people. I feel like people give up on their dreams so easily, you know, and you just got to keep going. You can’t let up,” Bianca concluded.

Due to the fact that she won a Gauntlet match on Monday, February 14, 2022, Bianca will have a decent chance of winning the Elimination Chamber since she will enter the match last.
