WWE’s Bianca Belair is No. 1

Bianca Belair’s historic emergence as one of WWE’s top female competitors will include yet another honor.

The former University of Tennessee track star topped the 2021 Pro Wrestling Illustrated Women’s 150 list, PWI contributing writer Kristen Ashly revealed during an appearance on Renee Paquette’s podcast.

Belair won the women’s Royal Rumble match at its namesake pay-per-view event to earn a title shot at WrestleMania 37 against then-SmackDown Women’s Champion Sasha Banks, with both becoming the first Black women to compete in the main event at WrestleMania, which later won an ESPY award for ‘Best WWE Moment.’

Belair defeated Banks and held the title for four consecutives months before dropping it to a returning Becky Lynch, who had vacated her RAW Women’s Championship after announcing she was pregnant with her first child.
