“Sasha Elevated Her” – WWE Producer Reveals Why Bianca Belair Became the EST of WWE

Bianca Belair has quickly become one of the biggest female WWE Superstars of all-time. The EST of WWE has won back-to-back WrestleMania title matches and the Royal Rumble in her 1st couple of years alone. And according to WWE Producer TJ Wilson (fka Tyson Kidd), Sasha Banks played a large role in that.

 

Bianca Belair is one of the fastest-rising young athletes in modern WWE history

Looking at the way she moves in the ring, you couldn’t tell that she’s only been doing this for 6 years. And yet that is the case! The EST of WWE was signed to a developmental deal in 2016, when she was recruited by pro-wrestling’s best scout; Mark Henry. Within a year, she’d make her NXT debut. 

 

Though Belair spent 3 years on the Black-and-Gold without the latter, her fortunes in WWE were about to turn around big-time; no pun intended. After a brief yet excellent feud with then-NXT Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair, Bianca was called up to the main roster. She’d go on to have the best debut year in recent memory; winning her 1st Royal Rumble, and the SmackDown Women’s Championship in her 1st WrestleMania single’s match. Now, the producer of that match has opened up on what makes her the EST of WWE.

Tyson Kidd thinks Sasha Banks unlocked the full potential of Bianca Belair

WWE Producer TJ Wilson, fka Tyson Kidd, is a driving force behind women’s wrestling taking center-stage on WWE programming. He was on production duty for the main event of WrestleMania 35 as well as WrestleMania 37 Night 1. While discussing the latter with DropKick Podcast, he revealed his true thoughts on the match, and what it did for Bianca Belair in particular.

 

At the 43 min 15 sec mark, you will hear him say “Sasha elevated her”, and he is not wrong in saying that. Up until that point, the EST of WWE had been a moniker bestowed upon her. However, her performance that night proved that she more than deserved it; and a lot of it was up to Sasha Banks. The Boss brought her A-game to make sure her opponent would shine, and in doing so, created a brand-new global superstar in a single night. 

 

After having experienced the kind of pressure that a WrestleMania main event brings with it, it is no wonder that Bianca Belair had the best match at WrestleMania 38. And we are more than confident that the EST of WWE is going to wipe the floor with Sonya Deville at Monday Night RAW tonight. The only question that remains is; who will challenge her at WrestleMania Backlash? Guess we’ll find out soon enough.
