Several WWE stars have sent their support to Bianca Belair.

WWE 2K24 goes on general sale on March 8th, and the game has already been shrouded in controversy. Following a lawsuit alleging sexual assault and sex trafficking, Vince McMahon has been blurred out several cut scenes, and Brock Lesnar has largely been removed from the game altogether.

Cody Rhodes is the cover star of the standard edition, while Rhea Ripley and Bianca Belair share the cover of the deluxe edition. In a new post on Instagram, WWE Games shared a photo of all three cover stars. However, in the comments, Belair was the target of several disgusting racist comments.

As the comments began to spread across social media, fans and wrestlers all around the world came out in support of the star. Big E was one of the first people to comment, calling out the abuse faced by black women in wrestling.

The black women in this industry face a regular barrage of racism & misogyny from “fans.” And have for far too long. You cannot diminish their light. You cannot erase their contributions to this industry.

Bianca Belair Is A “History Maker And Trailblazer”

Meanwhile, Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley also sent a message of support, describing Belair as a “trailblazer.”

EST ain’t just a nickname… @BiancaBelairWWE is a history maker, a trailblazer, and one of the nicest humans that you would have the privilege to ever meet. Y’all just mad that she’s better than you 💁🏻‍♀️ #EST

Zelina Vega offered support to Belair, adding that the so-called “fans” who made the comments should be ashamed of themselves.

Bianca is one of the best this business and WORLD has ever seen. When I think of a hard worker, stand out, path paver, and someone who is genuinely a proud representation of her culture, it’s Bianca. She deserves everything she’s gotten and MORE. She EARNED the name EST.

The “fans” that took part in the blatant disrespect and hate towards her and other black men and women should be ashamed and embarrassed. It’s disgusting. But your hate will never EVER dim their shine. We love you B. You continue to be an inspiration to all of us.

The likes of Michin, Keith Lee, Joe Gacey, Sean Waltman, Ivy Nile and more also went to bat for the star.
