Bianca Belair reflects on the Women's division
by SIMONE BRUGNOLI | VIEW 2104
Bianca Belair is one of WWE's best overall Superstars right now. In addition to being the current champion of Monday Night Raw, the 33-year-old from Knoxville also once held the SmackDown Women's Championship and won the 2021 edition of the women's Royal Rumble match of the eponymous ppv.
In early 2022, Bianca showed off thanks to a very heated rivalry with Becky Lynch, culminating in Wrestlemania 38 (where she finally managed to beat her). In a lengthy interview with 'WJBF NewsChannel 6', Belair admitted that she never thought of becoming a pro-wrestler.
Bianca made her official WWE main roster debut in 2020, entering SmackDown with no great expectations. After dominating the royal brawl in 2021, she starred in a starring role on WrestleMania 37 'Night One' alongside Sasha Banks.
New details on Bianca Belair
Bianca Belair recently revealed in an interview that Olympian Simone Biles inspired her. During the interview, Belair recounted her story as a collegiate athlete and how mental health was important.
In her latest interview with NBC Sports, the current WWE red show champion wanted to say that women will be the ace in the hole of the pro-wrestling world and more precisely of the WWE, in the coming years, saying: "I am in WWE in a truly wonderful time.
Women are truly well regarded and are also the future of WWE. I was able to be a part of Wrestlemania 37 where I attended our main event with Sasha Banks. We were the first two black and female athletes to ever be in a Wrestlemania main event.
Women are having main events on a weekly basis now in WWE ... it's really cool for young girls to see all of this, but also - and equally important - that it's definitely important for young boys to see women. they have a duty to be under the same lights as them.
So, I just want to be part of this great legacy WWE is creating with women and be a representative for women and little girls to do whatever they want, albeit in a completely male-dominated space." She detailed how Olympian Simone Biles inspired her by prioritizing her mental health and pausing her run at the recently concluded Tokyo Olympics.
Bianca Belair stressed that athletes are human as well, and sometimes it is okay to prioritize the human aspect over the competition. The EST's current run in WWE as a SmackDown Women's Champion has been nothing short of phenomenal.
Since the start of the year, she has won the Royal Rumble match, main-evented WrestleMania, and defended the title on multiple occasions.
