In a recent development, WWE Raw Women's Champion Bianca Belair, and her husband, Montez Ford, known for his tag team title wins, are set to venture into the world of reality television. The couple has filmed a series for Hulu, a streaming platform owned by Disney, manifesting Disney's strategic move to showcase the power couple as part of its network family.
The official WWE public relations team shared a snapshot of Belair, Ford, and the soon-to-be ESPN host, Pat McAfee, backstage at Disney's yearly upfront presentation. This platform is designed to entice potential advertisers and sponsors.
The mission for Belair and Ford at this event was to generate buzz for their upcoming reality show. Meanwhile, McAfee was present to advocate for his new contract with ESPN, a deal reputedly worth an eight-figure sum that will bring his self-titled show to the Disney-controlled network.
Bianca Belair & Montez Ford Reality Venture
The new series featuring Belair and Ford, which is yet to be given a formal title, is set to air on Hulu. It was fabricated by WWE Studios, marking their inaugural original reality show production for the platform.
Hulu traditionally broadcasts second-run WWE content from NBCUniversal and Fox. The pair indicated their show has been two years in the making, having produced a sizzle reel back in 2021. They expressed both excitement and apprehension at the prospect of giving reality show audiences a peek into their private lives.
The series promises a blend of their domestic life and behind-the-scenes experiences at WWE events, coupled with the chaotic lifestyle synonymous with the WWE touring schedule. In a statement made earlier in February, Belair confessed, "I never thought I would be someone to do a reality series type of thing." However, she seems eager to share her life off the stage, offering viewers a chance to witness her personal journey beyond her WWE persona.
