That should do fine. With Summerslam less than a month away, it is time to start getting everything ready for the biggest show of the summer. That means WWE needs to really hammer home some of the build, which could include more than a few big matches. Some of them might even need to be bigger than others, with one of the most important being set up this week.

Sasha Banks made a surprise return this week on SmackDown, saving Bianca Belair from a two on one attack at the hands of Carmella and Zelina Vega. Banks and Belair teamed up to defeat Carmella and Veta in the main event, only to have Banks turn on Belair after the match was over. This was Banks’ first appearance since the SmackDown after WrestleMania 37, when she had no comments on losing her SmackDown Women’s Title to Belair at WrestleMania.

It’s the latest chapter. Check out how we got here:

Banks and Belair are confronted by the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions: SmackDown, Feb. 12, 2021

Bianca Belair closes in on WrestleMania gold: WrestleMania 37 – Night 1 (WWE Network Exclusive)

Banks returns to help Belair neutralize Vega and Carmella: SmackDown, July 30, 2021

Opinion: This is the kind of match that needed to be set up, as there is really no one else near Belair’s level at the moment. WWE did not exactly have the time to set someone else up for Summerslam so going with the pretty easy rematch is the best idea that they had. The match worked at WrestleMania and it should work just as well at Summerslam in front of an even bigger crowd.
