Bianca Belair is a professional wrestler signed to WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment). Born on April 9, 1989, in Knoxville, Tennessee, Bianca started her career as a track and field athlete. She was a standout athlete in high school and went on to earn a full scholarship to the University of South Carolina.
Bianca discovered her love for wrestling during her time in college. She began training at a local gym and eventually made her way to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, where she signed a contract with WWE in 2016.
Bianca made her WWE debut in 2017, wrestling in NXT, the company’s developmental brand. She quickly became known for her athleticism, strength, and unique hair whip maneuver. Bianca’s impressive performances in the ring earned her the nickname “The EST of NXT,” which stands for “The Strongest, The Fastest, The Toughest.”
Bianca’s talent and hard work paid off in 2020 when she won the women’s Royal Rumble match, earning herself a shot at the Raw Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 36. In a historic moment, Bianca defeated former champion Sasha Banks to become the new Raw Women’s Champion. The match was not only a milestone for Bianca but also for women’s wrestling as it was the first time two black women headlined a WWE pay-per-view event.
Bianca’s reign as Raw Women’s Champion came to an end in August 2021 when she was defeated by Becky Lynch at SummerSlam. However, she quickly bounced back and became the SmackDown Women’s Champion by defeating former champion Sasha Banks once again.
Bianca is not only a talented wrestler but also an inspiration to many. She uses her platform to advocate for body positivity and encourages others to embrace their individuality. Bianca’s determination and hard work have made her one of the most exciting and dynamic wrestlers in WWE today.
