Bianca Belair wants to prove that she is the best woman to ever walk through the doors of WWE.
At WrestleMania 37, Bianca Belair defeated Sasha Banks in the first-ever women's singles main event of the annual spectacular to become the SmackDown Women's Champion.
Prior to WrestleMania, Bianca was feuding with Bailey at the start of this calendar year. Now having defeated both members of The Golden Role Models, Bianca says she wants to defeat both Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch and be the only one to defeat all Four Horsewomen, solidifying a new era in WWE and cementing her legacy.
Speaking with Sports Illustrated, Bianca says that she takes inspiration from the way that Sasha Banks conducted herself as champion and she is honored to be the one in this position now.
“I’m representing the whole company, the whole women’s locker room,” Belair says. “I look at the way Sasha did it. She modeled the way. I need to represent. This is my moment, and I want to inspire people and make an impact. That’s really what this is about, and I’m honored to be in this position to make a difference around the globe.”
She continued, “I had a feud with Bayley right before the Royal Rumble and I pinned Bayley, and now I beat Sasha. Now I want to go after the other two [in the] Four Horsewomen. I want to be the one to beat all of them, and prove I am the EST of WWE. I want to represent the new generation of WWE and show that we’re coming.”
Becky Lynch, who has not appeared in a WWE ring since announcing her pregnancy, did congratulate both Sasha and Bianca for making history at WrestleMania 37. Learn more here.
