Bianca Belair has had quite the 2021 thus far.
”It’s been like being a kid waking up on Christmas day, every single day,” said Belair. “It’s more than I could have imagined. It’s been an amazing year. It’s been a fun, wild ride. It’s been even better finally having all of our fans back and being able to be at SmackDown this year. Being out, being able to walk out in front of a crowd and share that moment with the crowd, it’s been more than I could ask for. I just feel very blessed and fortunate to be in the position that I’m in right now.”
Belair also sjared her excitement for having fans back, and she reflected on getting the chance to perform at Rolling Loud this past Friday night.
“…It reminded me of WrestleMania,” said Belair. “That’s the type of feel that it had and that’s the type of nerves that I had before going out there in front of that crowd. It was like those WrestleMania nerves all over again.
“It was amazing to be the person in that position to be able to go out there and showcase what WWE is, what we’re about, and show them that WWE is inclusive. It’s for everyone. That’s what’s amazing about WWE. It just transcends across all different religions, races, gender. It doesn’t matter. Anybody could look at the WWE and see someone that looks like them. There’s so much representation there. I feel like we were really able to showcase that at Rolling Loud and just being on the same stage as the most known and successful hip-hop artists. We were on the same stage as them and that was an amazing feeling. And that just shows how big WWE is. That we can get out on the same stage as them.”
