Bianca Belair doesn’t know what will happen at WrestleMania but she can’t wait to experience it at take it all in.
“The EST” recently spoke with author Adeline Bird for SportsNet about the opportunity she has at WrestleMania 37 next month, where she will challenge Sasha Banks for the SmackDown Women’s Championship. Belair spoke about being into fashion since she was a little kid and said it’s not only something that got her foot in the door in WWE, but now it’s something that fans come to expect from her.
“I’ve been making clothes since I was a little girl. My mom had a little tin cookie jar and hers had needles and thread and I just used to go in there and sew pillowcases together. I was just sewing and I have just always been into fashion, designing clothes and CrossFit. I was making tutus and big ol’ bows, and I was making all of my clothes. That’s what actually got me discovered by Mark Henry, who is a Hall Of Famer in WWE now. He was the one that contacted me and was like, ‘Have you ever thought of being a WWE Superstar? I can get you a tryout but you have to get yourself hired.’”
“So once I got in WWE, making my own outfit and clothes is what got me here. I had this extra pressure on me and I have conditioned fans to think every time I come out I am going to have different gear on. I have done it to myself. And I have WrestleMania coming up and now I’m just like, ‘Oh my God!’ I have to make a gear which lives up Wrestlemania.”
Belair was asked what WrestleMania means to her personally, and she said winning the Royal Rumble match was a huge accomplishment on its own, but once she saw the WrestleMania sign on her side, she remembered she “immediately just started shaking in the ring” but said being on the Grandest Stage Of Them All is the main goal.
“I get to go there. I could possibly be walking out as champion, and I have no idea what it’s going to feel like to be in that moment, but I can’t wait to be in that moment and live in that moment. That’s going to be something that I’m going to carry with me for the rest of my life.”
