Bianca Belair Reaches Historic Wrestling Milestone WWE

Bianca Belair has continued to break barriers during her time on the main WWE roster, as she once again made WWE history this week.

Her latest feat comes just one year after becoming the first African American woman to main event WrestleMania, after securing the coveted spot of Night One of WrestleMania 37 with fellow black female star Sasha Banks.

According to Fightful, Belair’s reign as the WWE Raw Women’s Champion has reached 200 days. As a result, she is now the longest reigning (male or female) black world champion in WWE history.

Her reign began at the first night of WrestleMania 38 on April 2, where she defeated Becky Lynch to win back the title Lynch had taken from her at SummerSlam the previous year (well, technically Belair had lost the SmackDown Women’s championship to Lynch, who then traded it with Charlotte Flair for the Raw equivalent when the two switched brands during the next WWE draft, making the two titles part of the same continuous reign).

Belair most recently retained her belt in a ladder match against Bayley at WWE Extreme Rules on October 8.
