At WWE Hell in a Cell 2021, Bianca Belair faced Bayley inside the devilish structure. The champion had her work cut out for her as Bayley was not ready to go down too easily. The two had what was possibly the best match of the night after they opened the show.

Bianca Belair and Bayley had been feuding for an extraordinarily long time before they finally faced each other in the cell. After the match, Belair said that she would never forgive Bayley, but after having defeated her multiple times, hopefully, the feud is at an end.

Now Bianca Belair will need a new opponent for herself and her SmackDown Women’s Championship after Hell in a Cell. There are quite a few women on the roster who could challenge for the title at the moment.

The article will talk about five women who could realistically challenge Bianca Belair for her SmackDown Women’s title next.

#5 Sasha Banks could ask for a rematch against Bianca Belair

Bianca Belair defeated Sasha Banks to become the new SmackDown Women’s Champion at WrestleMania.

Sasha Banks is one of the top names in the world of wrestling right now. Be it in the women’s division or otherwise, Banks is quite well known. Since losing to Bianca Belair, Banks has been conspicuous by her absence from WWE for the better part of quite a few weeks now.

When Banks eventually returns to the roster again, she will need a feud for her to pick up, and what better match could there be than a rematch against Bianca Belair.

It would be perfect for both women as it would give Belair a chance to prove that she didn’t win thanks to a fluke while it would also give Sasha Banks another run in the main title scene.

The two women have a lot of chemistry together as well, as their match at WrestleMania proved. Whether this match happens or not, Belair and Banks together would be magic once again for the WWE Universe.

#4 Carmella could stake her claim against Bianca Belair

Bianca Belair could face an unlikely challenge from Carmella for the SmackDown Women’s title.

Carmella is one of the wrestlers on the current SmackDown roster who has been overlooked for a long time. Ever since she returned with Reginald at her side, she seemed to showcase that she could do it all. However, since then she has done very little on the main roster since her return.

While she has attempted to challenge for the title and failed, Carmella needs a run in the main title scene, even as a challenger, to keep her as a viable threat. Otherwise, she has lost too many times and the WWE Universe will have a hard time taking her credibly. As such, Carmella is an excellent wrestler and could put on some amazing matches if given the chance against Bianca Belair.

For the moment, however, it seems extremely unlikely that Carmella could even come close to winning the title. Her future remains up in the air on WWE SmackDown.

#3 Mia Yim could redeem herself by challenging Bianca Belair

Mia Yim’s run on the main roster could be redeemed by challenging Bianca Belair. She was brought up to the main roster as part of RETRIBUTION and was given the extremely odd name of Reckoning.

Immediately after transitioning to working as Reckoning, she didn’t really get that many wins. Towards the end of RETRIBUTION’s run, it was Mia Yim who had enough of Mustafa Ali’s abuse and abandoned him by walking out on him.

She was later assigned to WWE SmackDown, but since then, is yet to debut for the Blue brand. As part of the main roster, Mia Yim might not have done match, but she was one of the most dominant superstars when she was in NXT.

Now, she could finally debut on WWE SmackDown and make her mark separate from what happened with RETRIBUTION. She could hopefully start anew under her own name and then challenge Bianca Belair for the SmackDown Women’s title. The feud would need to be built well to make her a convincing opponent, but Yim and Belair could easily deliver top-quality matches.

#2 Natalya could challenge Bianca Belair to become a dual-champion

If Bianca Belair faced Natalya, she could possibly meet her match.

Natalya is currently in the middle of what might be her best-ever WWE run. She is in what could be the best form that she has seen in years. Ever since she teamed up with Tamina, WWE has capitalized on the duo’s experience.

As a result, she was not pretending to be anything else other than exactly what she was – a veteran technician who can go in the ring with anyone else.

Currently, Natalya is the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion. She won her match against Mandy Rose at WWE Hell in a Cell, forcing her to tap out in the KickOff show.

With one title around her waist, Natalya could challenge Bianca Belair for a second title.

Bianca Belair showed what she was capable of in the Hell in a Cell bout against Bayley. However, Natalya is a completely different sort of opponent and a match between the two could be one of the most interesting in WWE.

#1 Sonya Deville could return to challenge Bianca Belair for the title

Bianca Belair might have her work cut out for her if Sonya Deville decides to return to the ring. Ever since she returned to WWE, Sonya Deville has focused on developing a rather unique and interesting character as an authority figure.

While her motivation is not exactly clear at the moment, Sonya Deville was one of the best in-ring workers in WWE’s women’s division – though not always treated that way. She has been absent from the ring for a long time now, ever since she lost to Mandy Rose last year.

Returning now to the ring to face Bianca Belair as a heel authority figure, Sonya Deville could do wonders.

Belair has already battled Sasha Banks and Bayley over the period of quite a few months and now a new opponent would go a long way.

Sonya Deville would also be able to match Belair’s technical proficiency n the ring, making for rather interesting matches. With that being the case, it remains to be seen if Deville chooses to return to the ring anytime soon.
