3. Bianca Belair
This has been a good year for Bianca Belair.
The “EST of WWE” spent the longest time in the Women’s Royal Rumble – eliminating seven competitors in the process, she fought for the NXT Women’s Championship in February, she was called up to the main roster on the Raw after WWE WrestleMania 36 and she eliminated the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions during the 5-on-5 women’s elimination match at WWE Survivor Series three weeks ago.
That is an impressive list of achievements for an ordinary wrestler – Belair is far from that. The University of Tennessee graduate has only shown a glimpse of what she is capable of – her potential is limitless.
Bayley is Belair’s next opponent – they are set to face each other on SmackDown next week.
Other than a brief run with Zelina Vega, this will be Belair’s first feud on the main roster – she will be testing herself against one of the best, a win would set her up for a huge 2021.
Belair will learn a lot from the former three-time Women’s Champion, that experience will help her development.
Belair has not been pinned or submitted since moving to the main roster in March – that run must continue into next year. She is one of the favorites to win 2021 Women’s Royal Rumble.
A match against Sasha Banks, for the SmackDown’s Women’s Championship on the Grandest Stage of Them All, is a dream contest for the WWE Universe.
If Belair maintains this momentum, she could leave that event with gold around her waist for the first time in her career.
