WWE Women's Champion Bianca Belair def. Io Shirai

Updated: Jul 25, 2021

Year V Women's Royal Rumble winner Io Shirai earned the opportunity to derail the momentum and snatch away the reign of "The EST" as the top female in sports entertainment when she challenged Bianca Belair for the WWE Women's Championship but the challenger learned quickly that the leading lady of the BDC is just built different

Fighting this match with her friends (Asuka and Kairi Sane) on her mind, Shirai took the fight to Belair right out of the gate having the champion reeling at every turn, including nearly putting The EST away following a piledriver through the announce table but somehow Bianca kicked out.

Bianca on the other hand kept coming back with her constant display of power until she was caught getting cocky and Shirai made quite the comeback including a Tombstone Piledriver following up by the Tiger Feint Kick (619) before putting all the eggs in her basket and attempted the moonsault but Bianca was ready when she caught her mid-air and transitioned it into the K.OD. and that was the Kiss of Death to Shirai's hopes and dreams as Bianca retained the Women's Championship in the first main event (within this series) to feature the women.

Has Bianca Belair reached her final form on the Grandest Stage of Them All? Can anyone stop the reign of THE BEST?!
