Bianca Belair on not being content in NXT

WWE NXT has a roster full of talented Superstars, many of whom have yet to show their true potential. Bianca Belair proves she is capable of more on a regular basis.



Belair spoke on After The Bell, where she provided an explanation as to why she is not content in NXT. She simply wants more opportunities to showcase what she is truly capable of.

“I’m not gonna say that I’m content. I’m not really that content. I’m always wanting more, but what I will say is NXT is my home. I consider it my family, and I love my journey that I’ve had in NXT. I feel like, three and a half years in, I still have so much that I can do if I do stay in NXT for a while. I’m still chasing the title, and I haven’t run out of things [to do] so I think I can have a really long career in NXT if that’s the case. With that being said, I know Bianca Belair. She’ll shine wherever she’s at whether it’s NXT, RAW or SmackDown, and I just go with the flow. I really believe what’s for you will be for you, so I just continue to stay in my lane.”

“I stay focused on myself. I do what I’m supposed to do. I don’t take days off,” Belair said. “Even if things don’t go my way, I still don’t take days. I just really believe that what’s for you will be for you. Regardless if that’s RAW, NXT or SmackDown, I’m gonna shine and stand out like I always do. Wherever it takes me, I’m ready for the journey, and my husband is on RAW so if I went to RAW, I would get to see him a lot more. But I’m just excited for the future. I think I have endless possibilities whether it’s on RAW, NXT or SmackDown.”

Belair is certainly one of the most talented performers in the NXT roster. She is scheduled to square off against Rhea Ripley for the NXT Title at NXT TakeOver: Portland. She will certainly prove she is the best if she manages to win the title.

  1. Society, by it’s very definition, demands a certain level of conformity, be it dress, attitude, work ethic, or appearance. Do what you want, but you don’t get to choose to be different than everyone else and then complain that you are excluded. If you choose to cuss, you don’t get to complain when you aren’t invited to the party. When you choose to be loud, you don’t get to complain when no one wants to hire you. When you choose to wear clothes different than everyone else you don’t get to complain when you don’t have any friends. Not saying Bianca or your sisters are guilty of that, not at all, just using that as examples that apply to anyone who chooses not to be part of society.

  2. Not racist, just pointing out the implicit bias that you seem to be unaware of. Not that my race matters, but I am black and have had to endure my own sisters being held to the wack ass standard that their hair is only acceptable if it’s chemically straightened or that they need to tone down aspects of their appearance or personality to make OTHERS feel comfortable.

    It’s not their problem if some random guy “gets it” or not. Their hair and appearance is part of their characters, just like the over the top appearances of The Fiend, The Undertaker, Velveteen Dream, the countless dudes on the roster who (in some folks’ opinion) need a damn haircut, or the Carmellas and such with ridiculously long hair extensions. For all of those mentioned and more, it’s about personal expression.

    The difference, whether you see it or not, is that black women’s appearances are all too often regarded as either too tacky, too raunchy, too hood/”ghetto” and then that label becomes a criticism of the performer herself and her propensity for success.

  3. That’s a really racist thing of you to say. I would say the same thing about anyone on the roster who had hair that stuck out that far from their head, regardless of race. It’s just not a good look, period.

  4. Your issue seems more about them being “too black” than anything inherently wrong with their styling or character. Bianca’s character would get over because she would stand out from all of the vanilla characters on the main roster. The issue is that the writers would have zero idea how to showcase her.

  5. If she ever makes it on the main roster 100% they make her tag with Naomi.
    WWE has NO idea how to use minority wrestlers other than make them into a tag team and make them use a gimmick that’s completely about their colour. They would be a female version of the Street Profits or heck, they would put them all into a Street Profits Stable

  6. Naomi needs to do something with that hair. She looks like a Chia pet. She looked better when she had the long straight hair. She used to condition and straighten her hair but then cut it all off and went to extensions, which looked terrible.

  7. The hair is all fake so they can do anything they want with it. So many of the female wrestlers use hair extensions, it was refreshing to see Naomi go back to her natural hair. I like long hair and all but not when it is just a bunch of extensions.

  8. Not to cast any aspersions on her talent, but I have never liked her gimmick or character.
    I just don’t see it working on the big stage.

  9. Everything about her needs to change for her to work on the main roster. She needs to drop the bouncing, the crass butt slapping, the rip off Nicki Minaj music, the whole “EST” thing. She should also take about 7 or 8 inches off that hair.
