Bianca Belair is set to participate at the Rolling Loud festival on WWE SmackDown.
Belair will defend her SmackDown Women's Championship against Carmella from the rap festival, which will be headlined by Travis Scott, Post Malone and A$AP Rocky.
Speaking to Alfred Konuwa of Forbes, Belair explained what it means to her to be part of Rolling Loud on Friday.
"It’s going to feel like home to me because that’s my environment, that’s what I’m all about,” said Belair of Rolling Loud. “One of my main goals, even when I first arrived in NXT/WWE, was to bring as many eyes to the product as possible and bring more eyes in the urban market, the hip-hop market. I want to bring more eyes to the product, and that’s what we’re going to get to do at Rolling Loud. I go out there with my baby hairs, and my bamboo earrings, I love to bop around so I hope I’m received well because I’m gonna feel like I’m at home. I hope they receive me like I’m coming to the cookout and they’re giving me the invite to come in.”
Belair continued by naming some artists she would like to work with.
“I would love to work with Megan Thee Stallion, City Girls, Cardi B, Nicki Minaj—I’m in love with Nicki Minaj—a few of these people are actually going to be there, so maybe I can go talk to them and see if we can have a tag team or partnership in the future," she said.
Though one stage at Rolling Loud collapsed on Thursday, WWE SmackDown will not be affected as the matches will take place on a different stage.
Fightful will have live coverage of WWE SmackDown beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
