Bianca Belair vs. Becky Lynch title match set for WWE SummerSlam

Belair will defend the Raw Women's Championship against Lynch on July 30.

A Raw Women's Championship match is official for WWE SummerSlam. 

Bianca Belair will defend the Raw Women's title against Becky Lynch on Saturday, July 30 at SummerSlam in Nashville. The match was officially announced during this week's Raw episode. 

Lynch announced on Raw that WWE officials had informed her that she will face the winner of a Belair vs. Carmella title match at SummerSlam. Belair then defeated Carmella to retain her title in a match where she could have lost the title by countout. 

After Belair vs. Carmella, Lynch and Belair had an interaction involving the Raw Women's title belt. Lynch grabbed the belt and teased handing it to Belair, but instead dropped it, playing off a Lynch and Charlotte Flair segment on SmackDown in the build to last year's Survivor Series. 

Lynch returned after maternity leave at last year's SummerSlam in Las Vegas as a surprise replacement for Sasha Banks in a SmackDown Women's title match, defeating Belair in under 30 seconds to win the title. 

Belair and Lynch then rematched at WrestleMania this year over the Raw Women's title, where Belair defeated Lynch. 

Seven matches are now official for SummerSlam. Here is the lineup to this point:
