Bianca Belair And Shayna Baszler Return On Raw With Big Statements

Bianca Belair

It’s been months since Raw’s newest women appeared on the show, but both returned on the same night. Bianca Belair and Shayna Baszler were set up to be the future of Raw around WrestleMania and have instead both been put on the back burner and recent months. On Monday night, both reappeared in separate dominating fashions to once again establish themselves as main threats and top women on the show.

First up in the night of returns was Bianca Belair, who aided Ruby Riott in her efforts against The IIconics. “The EST of WWE” showed the world why she was the toughest, fastest, smartest, and greatest all over again with her dominance when tagged into the match. She captured the win for her team with the K.O.D. finish and getting the pin. This marked Riott’s first win since returning to television. Belair’s dominance was a bright light in her future after many had doubted what was going on with her following the sudden appearance. “The EST” seems to be building to something.

Shayna Baszler’s return may have been even more shocking considering her complete disappearance from WWE programming. “The Queen of Spades” walked down to the ring as R-Truth attempted to defend the 24/7 Championship against Akira Tozawa. Baszler choked out all of Tozawa’s ninjas leading to both the challenger and champion to retreat. Baszler then grabbed the microphone and was visibly angry. Angry that the women in her division, the champions that they had, were acting as though she didn’t exist. She made it quite clear that she would be the reality check that the entire division needed now that she was back.

This is a start, as the return of both will freshen up the Raw women’s division for the better.
