Bianca Belair is now a full-time member of the Monday Night Raw roster and she feels that’s because of the work she put in day in and day out to get there.
Bianca Belair was the EST of NXT for well over a year before making the transition to Monday Night Raw on the night following WrestleMania 36. Leading up to that point, she had many opportunities to show her worth in front of the main roster audience such as her stellar performance in the 2020 women's Royal Rumble match. She, along with Shayna Baszler, are the co-holders of the record for the most eliminations for the women's match.
Speaking with Muscle and Fitness, Bianca reveals she never asked for an opportunity because she believes that her work speaks for itself and that whatever she is doing at that moment is exactly where she is meant to be and what she deserves to be doing.
“When you ask for an opportunity, actually I don’t ask for opportunities because I feel like whatever comes my way is what I deserve and I don’t have to ask for it, but I’ve been sitting here proving myself over and over, and I finally got that spotlight,” she said. “A lot of people were like, ‘Who is this girl?’, ‘Where has she been hidden?’ or ‘Oh, she’s so good now’. It’s not now, I’ve always been good, it’s just now you finally know who I am and now you are seeing what I’ve been saying [all along]. For me, pressure is just a part of the game, and part of competition. I’ve been competing since I was a little girl so I am used to it, I’m always ready for whatever comes my way.”
Now, you can catch the EST of WWE every Monday night on USA Network beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
