Bianca Belair started her WWE career as part of the Mae Young Classic tournament before she made a mark in NXT. Belair became a featured star in NXT and was then called up to the main roster, something that initially worried her. Belair also doesn’t think her SmackDown Women’s Title run was all that good.

The EST of WWE became one of the most dependable talents in all of WWE. She won the Smackdown Women’s Title after beating Sasha Banks for the title at WrestleMania 37.

She would end up losing the title at WWE SummerSlam, as Becky Lynch squashed her in 26 seconds. While speaking to Andreas Hale & Kel Dansby on the Corner Podcast, Bianca Belair stated that she believes she did not live up to her full potential as the champion.

“No, it’s difficult, and it gets frustrating for me sometimes. Even with my SmackDown Title reign, I didn’t feel I was able to live up to the full potential as SmackDown Women’s Champion with how short the reign was, and also with my feuds. Bayley getting injured, which I can’t wait for Bayley to come back, Carmella having to step in at SummerSlam.

Not being able to have these amazing matches that I could have had in my title reign and being able to go up against other really really great competitors to prove that I’m champion, and then it getting cut short. Fast forward, it’s like deja vu. It’s happening all over again. My competitors that I’m supposed to have, I’m not having. So it gets frustrating, but I try to look at it as I have to adapt and it’s making me a better competitor and making me stay on my toes.”

Bianca Belair is also open to unifying the women’s titles as well. It remains to be seen whether she will have a much better reign as the RAW Women’s Champion or not.
