“They were like, listen, ‘we’re gonna grab Bianca by the hand”- When Natalya credited Sasha Banks and Bayley for uplifting Bianca Belair’s WWE career

Sasha Banks and Bayley were memorable feuds for Bianca Belair's career

Current Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair commonly phrased as the EST of WWE is undoubtedly one of the most athletic and strongest performers today. She was brought up to the main roster initially during the WWE’s thunderdome era on WWE Raw where she competed in some random matches without any major feud in particular. Belair’s first major accomplishment came when she won the Women’s Royal Rumble match next year after which she chose to face Sasha Banks in the main-event of Wrestlemania for the Smackdown Women’s Championship.

This was being set- up as a historic match in WWE history as it was for the first time ever that two black women were standing toe to toe at the grandest stage of them all. At the event, Belair defeated Banks to capture the Smackdown Women’s championship after pinning her with the Kiss of Death finishing maneuver. This was the first major championship win for her in WWE and notably a prominent feud with Sasha helped Belair a lot.

Belair’s next major rival came in the form of Bayley, although she was previously been involved with an initial program with Belair earlier on, this time around it was all about the Smackdown Women’s championship. Bayley challenged Belair and fought her for the title at Wrestlemania Backlash and Hell in a Cell events but lost of them. However they were also scheduled for an “I Quit” match at Money in the Bank premium-live-event last year but unfortunately Bayley got pulled from the match due to unfortunate injury days before the event. Surely this was another major milestone feud Belair got a chance to get involved into against Bayley who surely elevated her as a babyface.

Calling upon the impact of these two above mentioned programs of Banks and Bayley in the career or Bianca Belair, former Smackdown Women’s Champion Natalya poured huge praise over the former Women’s Tag Team Champions for shooting up the career graph of Bianca as a performer. Nattie spoke on Taylor Wilde’s ‘Wildy On’ podcast and revealed her thoughts on the same by saying,

“Sasha [Banks] of course has transcended even beyond WWE having been a part of The Mandalorian which is huge. I mean to be a part of a Star Wars trilogy but, Sasha and Bayley, I witnessed first-hand, those two women did so much to help Bianca [Belair] last year when Bianca was on her rise in WWE, when Bianca needed all the help she could get.

Sasha and Bayley, they were two women that I was so impressed by that they had the star power being The Four Horsewomen and they helped. They were like, listen, ‘we’re gonna grab Bianca by the hand, we’re gonna make sure she shines, we’re gonna help her get to where she needs to go until Bianca can soar on her own“.

The reason behind Rhea Ripley being removed from her announced match came out after she suffered a brain injury quiet possibly some sort of concussion.
