Leah Van Dale (famous as Carmella) is an American professional wrestler, Hip hop dancer, and model. At present, she is signed up for WWE since June 2013, where she performs on the SmackDown brand under the ring name Carmella. She was assigned to their developmental brand NXT in Orlando, Florida.

In October 2014, she aligned herself with Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady and became their manager. In July 2016, she made her main roster debut on SmackDown. In April 2018, she won the first-ever Women’s Money in the Bank Match (and the second), defeated no less a talent than Charlotte Flair to win the SmackDown Women’s Championship, and won the second-ever WrestleMania Women’s Battle Royal.

Being a former Laker girl, the so-called “Princess of Staten Island” - Carmella won both the WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal and then the WWE 24/7 Championship (twice). Known for her creativity, she thrived in everything through her hard work. She exploded in the freewheeling sideshow of the Mixed Match Challenge, where she joined forces with R-Truth to originate an endearing seven-second dance break en route to winning the competition.

From fairing in as a hairdresser or a moonwalkin’ to trash-talkin’ girl from the 718, Carmella proved everyone all wrong, and fabulously so.

Early life

Born on 23 October 1987 in Spencer in Massachusetts, Leah Van Dale is the daughter of Paul Van Dale who is a former mixed martial artist and professional wrestler. Growing up in Spencer, Massachusetts, she graduated from David Prouty High School in 2006.

She graduated from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth in 2010. Van Dale was a cheerleader for the New England Patriots for three seasons, ending in 2010. She successfully auditioned for the Los Angeles Lakers dance team, appearing as a Laker Girl during the 2010-2011 season.

Personal life

Van Dale is a certified fitness instructor and a personal trainer and has cited Miss Elizabeth as her idol since childhood. She came into a relationship with fellow wrestler William Morrissey, famous as Big Cass. In 2019, Carmella entered a relationship with fellow WWE employee Matthew Polinsky, better known as Corey Graves.

Professional Wrestling Career

World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE)

NXT (2013–2016)

Van Dale applied to be a part of WWE Tough Enough in 2010 but after being accepted as a Laker Girl she moved to Los Angeles, withdrawing from the selection process. Three years later, in June 2013, she signed a contract with WWE where she was assigned to the company's developmental territory NXT in late September.

Later, she adopted the ring name Carmella debuting on the 4 September 2014 episode of NXT and portrayed as a hairdresser in a segment with Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady.

Two weeks later on NXT, Carmella appeared in another segment with Amore and Cassady at the WWE Performance Center. There she announced about losing her job as a hairdresser because of the actions of Amore and Cassady, asking for a job at NXT. She made her in-ring debut on the October 16 episode of NXT, wrestling an unnamed opponent whom Amore and Cassady dubbed Blue Pants.

Carmella defeated Blue Pants on two occasions, but later on the 1st January 2015 episode of NXT, Carmella lost to her after Amore accidentally caused a distraction. In March, Amore and Cassady began a rivalry with the NXT Tag Team Champions Blake and Murphy while Carmella rejected Blake and Murphy's advances on several occasions.

On the May 13 episode of NXT, Carmella was defeated by Alexa Bliss after a distraction by Blake and Murphy. On May 20 at NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable, Bliss attacked Carmella during the NXT Tag Team Championship title match, ensuring the win for Blake and Murphy.

While continuing to manage Amore and Cassady, Carmella began feuding with Eva Marie. This led to a match between the two on the August 26 episode of NXT, which Carmella lost. In January 2016, Carmella won a battle royal, becoming the number one contender to Bayley's NXT Women's Championship.

On February 10, Carmella unsuccessfully challenged Bayley for the title. After the match, Eva Marie and Nia Jax attacked the two, which led to a tag team match on the February 24 episode of NXT, which Carmella and Bayley lost.

Carmella made her first appearance on WWE's main roster on March 12 at Roadblock where she accompanied Amore and Cassady for their match against The Revival for the NXT Tag Team Championship.

On the May 25 episode of NXT, she competed in a triple threat match against Alexa Bliss and Nia Jax to determine the number one contender to Asuka's NXT Women's Championship at NXT TakeOver: The End, but she was pinned by Jax.

SmackDown Women's Champion (2016–2018)

She was drafted to the SmackDown brand on July 19 as part of the 2016 WWE draft. However, Carmella made her main roster debut for the brand a week later and confronted the brand female talents before she was interrupted by Eva Marie.

On the August 9 episode of SmackDown Live, Carmella achieved her first victory on the main roster by defeating Natalya. On August 20 at SummerSlam, she participated in a six-woman tag team match, alongside Becky Lynch and Naomi, which was won by their opponents Alexa Bliss, Natalya, and Nikki Bella after Bella pinned Carmella. Two days later on SmackDown Live, Carmella attacked Nikki Bella, turning heel in the process and started a storyline feud between the two.

On September 11 at Backlash, Carmella took part in a six-pack elimination challenge to determine the inaugural SmackDown Women's Champion. She was the last woman eliminated by Becky Lynch.

Meanwhile, Carmella was also part of Team SmackDown in the traditional five-on-five Survivor Series match that took place on November 20 at Survivor Series against Team Raw, where she was the first one to be eliminated by Alicia Fox.

On December 4 at TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs, Carmella lost to Nikki Bella in a no disqualification match to end their feud.
In 2017, Carmella moved into a storyline with James Ellsworth, professing that she found him "uniquely attractive", who then, started accompanying her to her matches.

Carmella made her WrestleMania debut, on 2nd April 2017, competing in a six-pack challenge for the SmackDown Women's Championship, but was unsuccessful. In late April, Carmella formed an alliance with Natalya and Tamina - dubbing The Welcoming Committee, and the three started a feud with Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair, and Naomi.

The two teams faced off in a six-woman tag team match on May 21 at Backlash, where The Welcoming Committee was victorious.

On June 18 at Money in the Bank, Carmella won the inaugural women's Money in the Bank ladder match after Ellsworth obtained the briefcase and dropped it to her. Two days later on SmackDown, Carmella was stripped-off of the briefcase and the second Money in the Bank ladder match was set by SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan.

On June 27, Carmella regained the Money in the Bank briefcase after she won the second match with the help of Ellsworth. In November, Carmella ended her association with Ellsworth after he lost to Becky Lynch in an intergender match. On January 28, 2018, at the Royal Rumble, Carmella participated in the first women's Royal Rumble match.

She entered at number 17 and lasted over 18 minutes before she was eliminated by her former rival, Nikki Bella. She then appeared in the first WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal at WrestleMania 34 but was the first woman eliminated from the match by Sonya Deville.

She held the contract for 287 days, the longest recorded period for a wrestler to hold the contract. After a few unsuccessful attempts to cash in her briefcase on Charlotte Flair, Carmella officially cashed in her contract on the April 10 episode of SmackDown Live. She defeated Flair to win the SmackDown Women’s Championship for the first time in her career after The IIconics (Billie Kay and Peyton Royce) attacked Flair.

In her first title defense, Carmella defeated Charlotte Flair at Backlash. Shortly after, Carmella feuded with Asuka which ultimately led to a title match between the two at Money in the Bank, where Carmella won after a distraction by the returning James Ellsworth.

And then again in a rematch between the two, Carmella defeated Asuka and retained her title (with Ellsworth suspended in a shark cage). After losing to both Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair in non–title matches, it was announced that Carmella would face both of them in a triple threat match at SummerSlam on August 19. At the event, Flair pinned Lynch to win the championship, ending Carmella's reign at 131 days. Two weeks later, Carmella received her rematch against Flair but she was unsuccessful in regaining the title.

Alliance with R-Truth (2018–2019)

Around the end of her title reign, R-Truth demanded a “title match by pinning her” and thereafter, Carmella was placed in a storyline with R-Truth. On the September 4 episode of SmackDown Live, Carmella turned face for the first time since 2016, after she agreed to manage Truth for his match with The Miz to avoid Maryse's interference.

Shortly after, Carmella started managing Truth and the two were also announced as tag team partners, calling themselves – “The Fabulous Truth”, for the upcoming season two of Mixed Match Challenge.

Carmella once again took part in Survivor Series as part Team SmackDown in November, eliminating Tamina before she herself was eliminated by Bayley.

Carmella and Truth lost the first three matches of Mixed Match Challenge, but defeated Rusev and Lana and qualified for the playoffs. The two of them went on to defeat Jeff Hardy and Charlotte Flair in the quarter-finals and then, the previous winners The Miz and Asuka in the semi-finals.

In the final of the Mixed Match Challenge at the TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs pay-per-view that took place on December 16, Carmella and Truth defeated Jinder Mahal and Alicia Fox.

This earned them the number 30 spots for their respective Royal Rumble matches at Royal Rumble. At Royal Rumble, she participated in the Royal Rumble match but was eliminated by Charlotte Flair.

In February, Carmella started teaming up with Naomi. The duo participated in a six-team Elimination Chamber match for the inaugural WWE Women's Tag Team Championship at the namesake pay–per–view, where they were the first team eliminated.

At WrestleMania 35 on April 6, Carmella won the WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal, eliminating Sarah Logan in the last. In May, Carmella took part in the Money in the Bank ladder match at the namesake pay–per–view, where she once again displayed a knee injury and was ultimately unsuccessful in winning the match.

The "knee injury" was used to spark a feud between Carmella, and Fire and Desire (Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville). However, it ended soon as Carmella continued to manage R-Truth, who won the WWE 24/7 Championship and she helped him escape and defend it against various competitors.

On the September 23 episode of Raw, Carmella rolled–up Truth to capture the 24/7 Championship from him. Her title reign came to an end 11 days later, during SmackDown's 20th Anniversary on October 4, when she was pinned by Marshmello backstage.

Later that night, Carmella regained the title from Marshmello in a segment that took place in the parking lot. During the Hell in a Cell, Tamina pinned Carmella to end her second reign with the title at only 2 days, but a few minutes later, Carmella helped Truth defeat Tamina to win the 24/7 Championship.

The alliance between Carmella and R-Truth was ended abruptly during the draft when Truth was drafted to the Raw brand and Carmella remained on the SmackDown brand.

Various storylines (2019–present)

On the November 8 episode of SmackDown, Carmella and Dana Brooke defeated Fire and Desire to qualify as part of Team SmackDown at Survivor Series, but they lost to Team NXT at the event. At the Royal Rumble on January 26, 2020, Carmella participated in the Royal Rumble match but was eliminated by Shayna Baszler.

On the April 24 episode of Smackdown, Carmella and Dana Brooke unsuccessfully challenged Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross in a title match for the Women's Tag Team title. On the May 1 episode of SmackDown, Carmella defeated Mandy Rose to qualify for the Money in the Bank ladder match.

Other Ventures

Carmella made her video game debut as a playable character in WWE 2K17, later appearing in WWE 2K18, WWE 2K19 and WWE 2K20.

Carmella joined Total Divas as a main cast member for the show's seventh season in June 2017. Despite being a guest in the eighth season, Carmella returned to the show as a series regular in the ninth season that was premiered in October 2019. The season featured Carmella's real-life relationship with Corey Graves.

WWE Extreme Rules 2021: New Match Announced; Updated PPV Card

In response to the poor booking of the women’s division, WWE has now confirmed a new matchup for Extreme Rules 2021. Carmella vs. Liv Morgan has been made official for the show in what appears to be a matchup between the two underutilized performers. It will be a big deal for the two as they share the ring in a PPV show.

This week’s SmackDown on FOX saw Morgan and Toni Storm defeat Carmella and Zelina Vega via count-out after Carmella assumed that her nose was broken by Morgan. After the match, Morgan issued a challenge to Carmella for Extreme Rules 2021. She also promised to make her look as ugly on the outside as she is from the inside.

WWE Officials Adam Pearce and Sonya Deville later confirmed Morgan vs. Carmella for Extreme Rules 2021 during a segment in the trainer’s room. Vega then declared that in order to get Carmella at the PPV, Morgan first has to face her next Friday on the go-home SmackDown episode. WWE then also announced Morgan vs. Vega match lineup for next Friday.

Morgan and Carmella have been feuding all this summer. While Mella has been wasting opportunities, Morgan barely gets one, which is the main issue of the storyline. Carmella defeated Morgan on the June 4 SmackDown, while Morgan then pinned Carmella on the June 11 and June 25 SmackDown shows.

WWE Extreme Rules 2021: New Match Announced; Updated PPV Card 2

Carmella vs. Liv Morgan booking at Extreme Rules 2021 has also received praise on the internet since WWE nixed out a tag team match scheduled for the bygone MSG edition, last week. Not only the same tag-team lineup was hosted this week but two of those names will now get to share the ring at a PPV. Plus, this will also mark the first singles outing for Liv Morgan on a PPV card.

Carmella and Liv Morgan are involved in a feud which was further dragged on Twitter while they have also appeared on Talking Smack.

As reported earlier, a match was pulled from this week’s SmackDown, due to time constraints. It was reported that the match was about to feature Liv Morgan and a partner vs. Carmella and Zelina Vega. In an update, it has now been revealed that Morgan’s partner was scheduled to be Toni Storm, according to John Pollock. There is still no update on if that match will happen at a later date.

In the meantime, all these four superstars were gearing up for a big Smackdown appearance at the historic venue to be remembered, forever. Unfortunately, they were cut off but they did have times to show off their looks from the bygone episode which was never showcased. Liv Morgan and Carmella previously throw tweets only written … to declare their frustrations.

Then Carmella posted a picture of her hot in-ring gear that was never displayed. It was a brand new pink gear as she could have showcased a lot of cleavages just like her recent outfits. As you can see in the picture, Mella got herself snapped in front of the Madison Square Garden writing to indicate that this was the gear reserved for her for the bygone show.

It would have been very special for Zelina Vega to perform at MSG on the company’s September 10th episode of Smackdown. Her father lost his life in the 9/11 attacks twenty years ago as she certainly expected to give a performance. She was a part of the 9/11 ceremony where she will be given the honor of reading names.

Then she posted a picture of her in-ring gear alongside the caption “nevermind” to let her frustrations knew about getting chopped off the show. Even, Toni Storm has trended on Twitter for the past few hours during and after SmackDown as fans have wondered why she isn’t being used. She made her main roster debut with a win over Vega on the July 23 episode but has not been used since then.

Storm shared a picture of her with Tegan Nox on her back from the backstage of Smackdown. WWE Talking Smack host Kayla Braxton was also super excited to make an appearance on the show as she shared glimpses of her hot outfit as you can see in the pictures.

Super Smackdown: WWE Cancels A Number Of Segments Featuring Top Superstars

WWE conducted a Super Smackdown from the historic Madison Square Garden in New York City, this week. As noticed on the show, the number of segments and matches was less than usual as they couldn’t fit everything on the show that they had planned. This explains why some of the superstars sent out frustrated tweets once the show went off the air.

It was noted by Fightful Select that a women’s tag team match was scheduled for Super Smackdown, but nixed due to time restraints. The match was to feature Liv Morgan and a partner vs. Carmella and Zelina Vega. There is no word yet on who was planned to be Morgan’s partner, or whether the match would be planned for next week.

It appears like the Naomi – Sonya Deville storyline was also nixed from this week’s Super SmackDown. Naomi was originally expected to feature in a match booked by Deville which never took place. There’s no word either on if this context was related to the tag team match that got nixed from the show.

She was again promised to have something for next week.

Fightful also reported that a segment with Kevin Owens and Happy Corbin was canceled from Super Smackdown. Their absence from this week’s show was noticed as the duo has been involved in storylines in the ongoing weeks.

“That segment was cut during the actual show, while a planned segment between Kevin Owens and Happy Corbin was cut from the program this afternoon,” the source noted.

Corbin appeared after SmackDown where he was beaten up by The Demon and then he lost to Drew McIntyre in a singles contest. WWE had a lot planned for this week but that wasn’t executed for some reason. Carmella and Live Morgan also tweeted out “….” and fans wondered what has been going on between the two.

Becky Lynch Receives First Challenger For Her WWE Smackdown Women’s Title

Bianca Belair has officially become the new number-one contender for the SmackDown Women’s Championship held by Becky Lynch. The post-SummerSlam edition of WWE SmackDown on FOX opened with the new champion coming out to the ring to discuss her big SummerSlam return and the quick title win over Belair.

Becky Lynch mentioned that it feels to be back on top. When she gave up the RAW Women’s Title last year it felt like she was giving up a part of her identity but since then she’s been working hard every day to get back where she was. She does have a new life now, and a new set of priorities but we might have no idea how deadly she’s about to be from now onwards.

Becky Lynch also addressed the backlash among the fans over how she defeated Belair at SummerSlam. For that, she’s sorry but for absolutely nothing. In the WWE, it’s all about the timing, and how she had been waiting for that moment for a long time. Belair then interrupted and said she’s not here to make excuses but she was also not cool with what happened at the pay-per-view.

Bianca Belair vs. Becky Lynch rematch set

Belair mentioned working hard, too for a long time only for Becky Lynch to erase it all in 26 seconds. Hence, she wanted a rematch for the title. She was interrupted by Zelina Vega, who also wanted a title shot. Then they were interrupted by Carmella, who believed that she deserved another title shot. Then Liv Morgan came out with the same pledge.

Becky Lynch was in no mood of defending, on the show as she simply left the ring. A brawl then broke out between Belair, Morgan, Carmella, and Vega which ended with Morgan standing tall. Then a number-one Contender’s Fatal 4 Way Elimination Match took place with these four names performing in it.

Belair pinned Vega for the first elimination with the KOD finisher while Morgan pinned Carmella for the second elimination by the ObLivion move. Then Belair finally pinned Morgan to win the match and become the number-one contender for the Women’s Title. WWE has not announced when Bianca Belair vs. Becky Lynch rematch will take place. Chances are high that these two might collide at Extreme Rules.

WWE Summerslam 2021: Becky Lynch Returns To Win Smackdown Women’s Title

Becky Lynch is back and she’s the new Women’s Champion from the Smackdown brand at WWE Summerslam 2021. In what appeared to be a surprising set of incidents at the bygone PPV event, the original matchup for the blue brand title match was off the card and the returnee became the new challenger for the title. She then captured the title in the least effort possible.

Going into WWE Summerslam 2021, we have learned that Sasha Banks was off the card and her match against Bianca Belair was also not taking place. No specific details were given regarding her absence. Sasha was not at the Footprint Center for SmackDown this past Friday night. While she and Bianca Belair also missed last weekend’s non-televised WWE Supershow live events in North and South Carolina.

The crowd of WWE Summerslam 2021 booed the hell out of Carmella as she made her entrance. Belair took the mic and said that she will eventually Sasha Banks in the ring, but until then she’s just going to take her frustrations out on Carmella, right there. They argue as the bell hits but the music interrupted and out came Becky Lynch to a huge pop from the audience. Lynch was fired up as is the crowd as she headed her way to the ring with a brand new t-shirt that said, “The Man’s Back In Vegas.”

Becky looked at both the competitors, then kicked Carmella and threw her out of the ring. Becky then sent Carmella into the steel ring steps. Before stepping back into the ring and have a staredown with the champion before proposing a title match right there at WWE Summerslam 2021.

Carmella is currently portraying “The Most Beautiful Woman in All of WWE” shtick. While talking to the Out of Character Podcast, she revealed that she had to hire her own crew at home to help her create vignettes to pitch to WWE. Thankfully, the creative team loved her new take on shredding that Princess of Staten Island character, so it worked out. So, her money for hiring a crew for a pitch wasn’t wasted, after all.

“Then they said they wanted to give my character a ‘fresh coat of paint’ and at first I’m like, ‘I love my character, and I don’t want to change.’ Then I thought it was a good thing to change and show some growth. If I was going to have a new character, I wanted something that would resonate and something I would feel. I made vignettes at home. I hired people, created them, and sent them to WWE. They were like, ‘This is great, we love it, this is what we’re going to do.’”

Former WWE show-host Cathy Kelley commented that she was the perfect woman while names like Natalya, Cassie Lee fka Peyton Royce, and WWE Bump host Kayla Braxton also reacted to those hot photos. While Mella will continue to make some splash on social media, it’ll be interesting to see how WWE would utilize her in the near future.

Carmella received a few title match opportunities

A few weeks ago on SmackDown, it was announced by WWE Official Sonya Deville that Carmella, a former SmackDown Women’s Champion, will be taking Bayley’s (torn ACL) place against Bianca Belair for the title on the first in-person event in over a year and a half. While many fans criticized the move, the woman herself had enough reasons for herself to get such opportunities.

“Some people say I don’t deserve it. Are you kidding me?” Carmella angrily asked. “Not only am I the most beautiful in all of WWE, I have a hell of a lot more to offer than just being a pretty face.

“You want to talk about the best of the best in the women’s division; let’s talk about it. Let’s talk about Charlotte Flair. I beat her. Asuka. Beat her, too. Alexa Bliss. Beat her. Let’s so who else is there; Sasha Banks. Beat her. Becky Lynch, I beat her. So, why the hell are we talking about me? Yes, I’m beautiful, but I can also go in the ring.” (quotes courtesy Wrestling INC)

Video: Carmella’s Top Opend Up During WWE Live Event

Carmella claims herself to be the most beautiful woman in all of the WWE for a reason. Every time she comes out with her new music and entrance, she wears attires that are more than just gorgeous. It flashes a lot of skin and cleavages, literally forcing the fans to get mesmerized by her. She continues to do the same, every week on Smackdown and thereby garnering some attention.

As seen on Friday night’s Carmella makes appearances in extremely hot attires which might not be always safe to wear during a match. Due to their short lengths, it comes up with the chance of causing a wardrobe malfunction, for sure. It’s now proven as a disastrous happening that went down during a house show where the ex-challenger for the Smackdown Women’s Title had to deal with a nightmare.

During a live event in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Smackdown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair successfully defended her championship against Carmella, once again. Prior to the match, the challenger forced Smackdown announcer Greg Hamilton to mention her as the most beautiful woman in all of the WWE.

As the match progressed, Belair and Carmella were tangling in a spot when suddenly the latter’s tiny crop top tore down. The challenger took it, sportingly as she continued to wrestle with that torn top. She was covering her assets with her hand to prevent herself from getting fully exposed. Belair realized the disaster as she quickly hit the KOD finisher on Mella to end the match. You can check out the video given in the article.

Carmella reacted to the wardrobe malfunction

Carmella herself tweeted on the incident as she posted the following,

After Bayley went down with a torn ACL, WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair was suddenly without an opponent for the 2021 Money in the Bank PPV. WWE decided to move Belair’s title defense to SmackDown against Carmella, two nights prior to the PPV event.

Six days of time for preparation wasn’t enough for the challenger who got victimized by the champion. In a rematch from the Rolling Loud festival in Miami, Florida, Belair again defeated her current rival for the title which might have ended the program for good.

Sasha Banks Returns On WWE Smackdown; Attacks Bianca Belair

Sasha Banks is back on SmackDown and she is seemingly focused on gaining back the gold she lost at WrestleMania. In a couple of appearances, yesterday night, the returnee made it clear that she will be coming after Bianca Belair, right away.

This week’s SmackDown on FOX from the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota featured an in-ring segment with Kayla Braxton interviewing SmackDown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair as she was celebrating 110 days as the champion. (She won the belt from Sasha Banks at WrestleMania and crossed the 100-day landmark a couple of weeks ago to solidify her status as a strong champion).

Belair was interrupted by Carmella, who wanted a third shot at the title. Zelina Vega also interrupted the session and made her point to get a title shot. Belair then accepted Vega’s challenge but was quickly attacked from behind by Carmella with a cheap shot. Vega and Carmella then double-teamed on Belair, beating her around the ring.

At this point, the music hit as Sasha Banks came out to a big pop from the crowd. She rushed to the ring and took out Carmella and then Vega. She helped Belair up as they hugged to end the segment. Sonya Deville later announced in a backstage segment that this week’s SmackDown main event will feature Banks and Belair vs. Vega and Carmella in a tag team action.

Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair then teamed up to face Vega and Carmella in the main event of SmackDown. The match finish witnessed Banks hitting Carmella with the Backstabber and then applying the Bank Statement for the win. After the main event, the match-winners celebrated until Banks turned on Belair from behind, dropping her with a Backstabber.

The Target Center showered Sasha Banks with boos as she continued beating Belair around the ring and taunting her with the title belt. Banks hit a tornado DDT and applied the Bank Statement as the referee tried to separate her from Belair who was screaming in pain. Banks then stood tall with the SmackDown Women’s Title as the show went off the air.

Sasha Banks vs. Bianca Belair has been rumored to happen at the WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view on Saturday, August 21 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. However, the match is yet to be confirmed by the WWE. The potential next challenger for the title has been away from WWE since dropping the belt to Belair in the main event of WrestleMania 37 Night One back in April.
