Bianca Belair vs. Sasha Banks set for WWE SummerSlam

A rematch of the WrestleMania 37 night one main event will take place at SummerSlam.

WWE has announced that SmackDown Women's Champion Bianca Belair will defend her title against Sasha Banks at SummerSlam. Belair won the title by defeating Banks at WrestleMania 37 this April.

Banks returned to WWE television last Friday and continued her feud with Belair. Banks had been off TV since the post-WrestleMania episode of SmackDown.

Banks initially saved Belair from an attack by Carmella and Zelina Vega on SmackDown last week. But after Belair & Banks defeated Carmella & Vega in the main event of the episode, Banks turned against Belair and put her in the Banks Statement twice.

During the opening segment of tonight's SmackDown, Banks addressed why she attacked Belair. Banks said she returned last week to reclaim her spotlight. Banks claimed that Belair would be nothing without her.

Belair then came out and responded to Banks. But Vega also made her way down and reminded Belair that -- before Banks returned last week -- Belair accepted a challenge from Vega. Belair vs. Vega in a non-title match was announced for later tonight. A title match between Belair and Banks was also announced for SummerSlam.

SummerSlam is taking place at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Saturday, August 21. Here's the updated card for the pay-per-view:

  • Universal Champion Roman Reigns defends against John Cena
  • WWE Champion Bobby Lashley defends against Goldberg
  • SmackDown Women's Champion Bianca Belair defends against Sasha Banks
  • Raw Women's Champion Nikki A.S.H. defends against Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley in a triple threat match
  • Edge vs. Seth Rollins
  • SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos defend against Rey & Dominik Mysterio
