Fresh off her victory against Bayley at WWE Extreme Rules, current Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair is set to make history once again in WWE.
Bianca Belair defeated Becky Lynch at WrestleMania 38 to capture her first Raw Women’s Championship. Since her championship win, ‘The EST of WWE’ has only been pinned by one person – that being Bayley – and has remained on top of the women’s division for months.
Now that Belair has toppled the Damage CTRL leader at Extreme Rules, she can now focus on making history once again. During an interview with BT Sport, the Raw Women’s Champion discovered that she’s about to become the first black woman to hold a WWE title for over 200 days.
“We gotta make this happen. That’s a huge milestone. I want to keep breaking those barriers and be that person that shows like this is possible, keep riding with it. So, even more pressure.”
Bianca Belair is no stranger to making history in WWE. At WrestleMania 37, she and Sasha Banks became the first two black women to headline ‘The Show of Shows’. She also holds the record for the longest time in a women’s Royal Rumble match as, in 2021, she entered third and survived for nearly one hour before winning the whole thing.
It’s unclear who will step up to challenge ‘The EST’ next for the Raw Women’s Championship following Extreme Rules, though Charlotte Flair recently teased possibly going after the title at some point.
