At last year’s WrestleMania 36 event, Bianca Belair made her main roster debut, saving the Street Profits from an attack at the hands of Zelina Vega, Austin Theory and Angel Garza.
Speaking on the After The Bell podcast, Bianca Belair noted that she was frustrated with her position after getting called-up to the main roster, as she wasn’t used well for months:
“For me, I would say always try to figure out what your why is,” Belair said. “For me, a lot of it is being a role model, representation, look at the bigger picture. When I was in NXT, I was going after the NXT Women’s Championship and it never happened, I would constantly check in on my perspective. I was there during the Shayna [Baszler] reign, and that was Shayna’s time but to me at the same time, I was a part of it. I was a part of pushing it forward and pushing it to the next storyline.
“Even when I got to RAW and I was backstage, I wasn’t doing much, I would have people come up to me and say ‘It’s okay, aren’t you upset, aren’t you frustrated?’, and I was just like ‘Look, what’s for me will be for me and I would rather them put me out there when they have something for me than for them to just kind of shuffle me.’ My perspective was more of, it will all come together and I’m a firm believer in being able to clap for people even when it’s not your turn because when it’s your turn, you’re going to want people to clap for you. It’s just focusing on the things you can control like you’re going to drive yourself crazy focusing on some things you just cannot control.”
