Bianca Belair

Bianca Belair has claimed top spot on the PWI Women’s 150 list beating out the likes of Sasha Banks, Britt Baker and Deonna Purrazzo.

2021 has undoubtedly been the biggest year in the short career of Bianca Belair. The EST of WWE started out by winning Royal Rumble on January 31st before capturing the SmackDown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 37. The match headlined night one of the extravaganza meaning that the two Superstars became the first Black women to feature in the show’s main event.

Despite losing the SmackDown Women’s Title at SummerSlam to Becky Lynch, Belair has remained fixture at the top of the blue brand.

As part of the 2021 WWE Draft Bianca Belair was drafted to Raw on night one as the number two pick for the brand and the fourth pick overall.

For the first time ever, the PWI Women’s list was expanded from 100 to 150 with Belair moving up from 23rd spot in 2020 to take the crown. The 2020 list was topped by Belair’s long-time rival Bayley.

Long-reigning IMPACT Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo was another big climber, moving from number 30 to number three, while AEW Women’s Champion Britt Baker rose from 22 to claim forth. The top five was rounded out by Baker’s rival Thunder Rosa at five, with Stardom’s Utami Hayashishita coming in second.
