It’s “Boss Time”, as Sasha Banks is back.
“The EST” repeatedly proved why she’s called the “strongest” woman in WWE, as she overpowered Lynch at various points in the match.

Still, “The Man” showcased the skills that drove her to the top of the women’s division. She focused on Belair’s arm and nearly made the challenger tap out at a few points. In the end, Belair was seemingly closing in on the victory, but the shocking return of Sasha Banks cost both competitors the chance to win the match.

Banks attacked “The EST,” so the referee rang for the bell. Once the match ended via this disqualification, Banks kept attacking Belair. “The Boss” briefly stared Lynch down before she attacked the champion. Belair tried to fight back, but Banks ultimately left both women lying before she told them she’d see them on Friday.
Banks had been absent since WWE SummerSlam; she had been scheduled to challenge Belair for the title at the show, but she was deemed unable to compete. Her absence led to Lynch’s return at the pay-per-view, and “The Man” defeated Belair in 26 seconds to win the gold. Belair won the title when she defeated Banks at WWE WrestleMania 37, so all three women are clearly interconnected in the title scene at this point.
