Today, Bianca Belair is one of WWE’s biggest SmackDown stars. The EAST of WWE has become something of an escape star after her record-breaking performance in the 2020 Royal Rumble, and she could be heading for a similar run in the 2021 match.
Recently, Bianca Belair participated in an interview with Illustrated sports. The popular star discussed her current SmackDown rival, her upcoming Chronicle episode, and how she got to WWE.
When asked about the transition to her current full role on SmackDown, Bianca Belair said the following:
“I have been an athlete my whole life. I have been playing sports since I was five years old. Competition is part of who I am and I have always wanted to rise to the occasion. My dad always taught me to never be afraid of anything, so whenever there is a challenge I am excited to face it and conquer it. “
Bianca Belair also reflected on coming to NXT as a rookie wrestler, compared to some of her teammates who had wrestled all over the world:
“When I came to NXT, I was the girl who arrived with no experience. I wasn’t from India, so I felt like I was constantly trying to prove myself. I had a different background than everyone else, but I still worked my ass to get there. And the work has not changed. I introduced myself and I showed myself, and now the opportunity arises. This is what I am working towards. I prove myself everywhere on Smack down. I am ready to seize all the opportunities that present themselves to me and make the most of them “
