Earlier this month, Bianca Belair captured the WWE Women’s Championship by defeating Asuka and Charlotte Flair in a Triple Threat match at SummerSlam. However, a moment later, Iyo Sky cashed in her Money in the Bank contract on Belair to become the new champion.
The EST last competed on the August 18th episode of SmackDown, where she teamed up with Charlotte Flair to defeat Bayley and Iyo Sky. Damage CTRL then attacked Belair in a backstage segment. They hit Belair’s left knee with a chair.
Fightful Select reported that the former WWE Women’s Champion will be taking time off from WWE. As of now, no timeframe for Belair’s return. Fightful Select noted that she will be out for a few weeks or possibly three months.
“Belair was planned for some time off, and was factored in creatively. However, we’ve heard differing things on how long she could be out, ranging from a few weeks (under a month) to possibly three months. We’ll update you on the latest that we hear on her absence.”
