Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair has admitted that following her match at Crown Jewel in early November, she broke down backstage.
At Crown Jewel, Bianca Belair and Bayley made history when they became the first women to compete in a Last Woman Standing match in Saudi Arabia. Belair came out of the contest as the winner, hanging on to her Raw Women’s Championship in the process.
Speaking on the Notsam Wrestling podcast, Bianca Belair admitted that following the match she broke down in tears as she took a moment to reflect on the enormity of another great accomplishment in her career:
“A lot of times, I feel like I’m on autopilot where I’m just pushing through and trying to get to what’s next and you really have to stop and reflect on what’s happening and how big moments are and that actually happened to me after the match in Saudi Arabia.”
“I got backstage and just, I broke down and a lot of people were coming up to me like, ‘Oh my God, are you okay?’ And I’m like, ‘No, they’re happy tears, it’s good tears’ because everything happens so fast and you really have to soak in the moments and realize how big the moments are.”
“But then you get right back on the plane and you go to Raw and now, like you said, challenging people to WarGames and on to the next, the next big thing so, it’s always just pushing forward and moving through but trying to take the little moments and stop and reflect on how big the moments really are.”
