Bianca Belair is sitting on top of the world and the Raw women’s roster as the Raw Women’s Champion. She has had an extremely impressive past two WrestleMania experiences. Big wins at WrestleMania 37 and 38, becoming champions both times, and becoming one of only five women to ever main event on the biggest stage in wrestling.
While speaking to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful during Money in the Bank, Belair revealed that she and Sasha Banks had found out about their headlining the event from Twitter and at the same time that everyone else did. And just the day before the event.
“I feel like we found out at the same time as everyone else on Twitter. It was a lot of back and forth between who was going to main event and who wasn’t. A lot of our fans on Twitter were doing hashtags and really pushing for it. We found out, I believe, the day before WrestleMania that we were going to be the main event. Some people think maybe that’s scary, but it didn’t give me time to think or get too nervous. We just had to go out there and do what we do and that’s what we did.”
Belair would add about how she handles high pressure situations. She has been put into positions as well where she has had to switch opponents at the last minute also. She has had matches change where she was supposed to originally face Bayley, Banks, and most recently Rhea Ripley. She has developed her EST persona which she now has to live up to no matter what.
“I definitely look forward to them. I’ve been an athlete my whole life. So I’ve learned how to embrace the feeling of nervousness and not get scared of it. My daddy always taught me, ‘It’s okay to be nervous, just don’t be scared.” said Bianca.
“When you’re in WWE whenever someone asks you what your goals are, it’s always to go to WrestleMania or main event WrestleMania or become champion. I’ve done that at back-to-back WrestleMania’s.”
“So I’m developing this reputation that I’m gonna have to continue to live up to. I’m looking forward to living up to that reputation and just continue to show that I am the E-S-T of WWE and I want continue to be the talk of WrestleMania’s from the last two years and years going forward.” said
Belair currently does not have a match planned for SummerSlam but she has many options that could take place. On this place week on Raw, several women such as Carmella, Becky Lynch, Asuka, and Alexa Bliss all staked claim on wanting a championship bout.
