Bianca Belair Discusses Double Save With Naomi At WWE Royal Rumble, Praises Naomi's Talent

Bianca Belair stole the show in the Women's Royal Rumble, lasting nearly an hour in the match and winning the whole thing. 

Belair was on the verge of elimination multiple times during the match, but none closer than when Naomi grabbed her hair from the outside as a way to save herself. Naomi and Bianca ended up dangling from the apron together, before helping each other swing back into the ring.

Speaking to Complex, Bianca discussed the spot and what it meant to her to work with Naomi. 

"That's definitely one of my favorite moments of the match," she said. "I got to be in the ring with Naomi last year for the Royal Rumble for a very short time. But having that moment with her, we both almost being eliminated and dangling off of the rope and realizing like, 'Look, if we got to do this together, we have to work together.' And when we finally work together, we end up saving ourselves in the process. So that was an amazing moment to have with her and shared everything with her and I've always looked forward to like just getting in the ring and creating magic with her because she's so athletic and she's so talented. I remember right before I went to NXT, I went to a show in Atlanta when I was living there. I believe it was like a six women tag and Naomi came out. It was my first time seeing her live. It's crazy how I just naturally just gravitated towards her. I was about a month away from going to the Performance Center and seeing her in the ring really helped me imagine seeing myself in the ring; I could see myself through her. So, just remembering that moment from seeing her before I got to NXT so now being able to share the ring with her and actually working together with her to save ourselves, that was an amazing and special moment in the Royal Rumble."

Belair would win the Rumble by last eliminating Rhea Ripley to punch her ticket to WrestleMania. 

It is unknown which Women's Championship Belair will challenge for at WrestleMania.
