Bianca Belair Shares What Drives Her Now, Believes She’s Just Getting Started

Bianca Belair says her passion for the business and the fans’ love motivate her to continue.

The former Raw Women’s Champion spoke with Wade Barrett at WWE World, discussing her motivations for wrestling after achieving so much in the WWE.

She cited her passion for the business as one factor, but mentioned fan support as another.

“I had a quick rise to the top, and with that you have to have something that drives you, because you get complacent. And honestly, its the love and the passion for what I do. It might sound cliche, but its you guys [gesturing to the fans]. I love you too, I really do. It’s you guys. It’s the little EST’s that I see every single meet and greet,” Bianca explained.

“You guys put smiles on my face. We always say our job as WWE Superstars is to put on you guys’ faces, but it’s those moments where you guys put smiles on our faces that. When I get to walk out there at WrestleMania, and I hear those “EST” chants, and I get to look each and every one of you guys in the eye and I can see the love and the passion, and appreciation, for what we do, that’s what drives me. It does get tough. It does get hard.”

Bianca Belair continued. She claimed she wanted to emulate the likes of Sasha Banks, and put help build up young talent. She also noted superstars like Rhea Ripley and Charlotte Flair were ones she’d love to face at WrestleMania.

Bianca Belair Wants To Pay It Forward

“But I know there’s a bigger meaning and purpose to it. I love getting to meet you guys. I have a passion for what I do. Now I think it’s a different era. The future is coming in. My position is changing, where I get to start doing for others what others did for me. What Sasha [Banks] did for me in that WrestleMania match, I couldn’t wait until I got to the point where I felt I was at the mountaintop. Some people want to get to the mountaintop because they want to feed their ego, but I want to because I want to do to others what they did for me. For me, that’s when I know I’ve made it. I know I’ve made it when I can pass that torch to someone else, or I can do for others what they did for me. That’s what’s driving me now.

“To bring more people in, and to share this platform with them. To help elevate them, and that’s what’s driving me. At the end of the day, I’ve cemented my legacy as a history-maker. I feel like I’m just getting started. I’ve only been here for four years, and there’s so much more that I want to do. I’ve never had the tag team titles. There are some other titles I’ve never held. I’ve never had a WrestleMania match with Charlotte Flair. I mean, maybe we’ll be fighting for the title of “Miss WrestleMania” someday? We have Rhea Ripley I would love a match with. We have Tiffany that I want to have a WrestleMania match with. Jade Cargill. The possibilities are endless.”
