Bianca Belair began her WWE career as part of the Mae Young Classic tournament before she made a mark in NXT. Belair became a top star in NXT and was then called up to the main roster, something initially worried her. She also lamented over not winning the NXT Women’s Title.
The EST of WWE went on to have a successful career in WWE, as she won the Royal Rumble and then became the Smackdown and RAW Women’s Champion. However, she was never able to win the NXT Women’s Championship during her time on the brand.
While speaking to Andreas Hale and Kel Dansby on The Corner Podcast, Bianca Belair revealed that she placed validation on the NXT Women’s Championship, which she never won.
“I did [question herself in NXT]. I go out there and talk about being the EST of WWE and that’s where I started in NXT and I feel like that was my home and I felt like there, I was constantly trying to prove that I belonged there… I placed so much validation with that title (NXT Women’s Title) and it was so many times when I thought, okay, this is my time, this is my time and it never happened… I was like man, I wanna prove and show that I’m worthy and that I’m good and I’m capable of being the face of NXT and being a champion.”
It remains to be seen whether Bianca Belair will make her way to NXT and try to win the title she never was able to. In that case, Mandy Rose will certainly have to be careful.
