Bianca Belair is set to compete in another remarkable SmackDown Women’s Championship at WWE Crown Jewel ; on October 21, she’ll face Sasha Banks and the champion, Becky Lynch in a Triple Threat Match for the gold.
In an interview with the Hindustan Times, Belair made it clear that she’s looking forward to the bout, as it will both give her a chance to regain the title and continue to make women’s wrestling history.
“I am just excited for the match,” said Belair. “For one, I am excited to have another chance to get my SmackDown Women’s Championship back. I was this close to winning it back before Sasha Banks came in. So, at least I am getting another chance. But now it’s going to be even more harder because now I am going up against two women.
“But I am even more excited because I am coming to Saudi Arabia, it will be the third women’s match ever there – the first-ever women’s triple threat match there. So, I am excited to compete with Sasha and Becky there – to be in Saudi Arabia and showing representation. Making change not in the ring, but also outside the ring, so I feel fortunate and blessed to be a part of that moment – and a part of that stamp in history.”
Likewise, Belair reflected on her historic WrestleMania 37 main event match with Banks and explained how it represented her “why”, as representation and inspiration are two of her top priorities as a wrestler. She noted that having a powerful impact on fans is what ultimately matters at the end of the day.
“That’s what this is about,” said Belair. “I feel in WWE, I always try to find my ‘why’. My purpose of why I do what I do. Definitely, my ‘why’ in WWE is the representation and being a role model for everyone out there. Anyone who looks to me as an inspiration is why I do this. Even at WrestleMania, that was the being thing – bringing the representation.
“Coming to Saudi Arabia, bringing representation for other women and young girls. I always think about the role models I had when I was a little girl. They really made me feel how big I could dream, they made me feel I could do things that I did not think I could do before. And because of them, I went and did what I did, and I am where I am now. So, I may have the same impact on girls or boys or anyone – it does not matter. But that is what this is really about. And it’s a bigger purpose than just winning a match or winning the championship – it’s about inspiring everyone.”
