In a recent interview with Hindustan Times, Bianca Belair discussed potentially feuding with Rhea Ripley on WWE Raw, who she’d include in her all-women’s faction on the main roster, and much more. Here are some highlights:

Bianca Belair on her upcoming triple threat match with Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks at Crown Jewel: “I am just excited for the match. For one, I am excited to have another chance to get my SmackDown Women’s Championship back. I was this close to winning it back before Sasha Banks came in. So, at least I am getting another chance. But now it’s going to be even more harder because now I am going up against two women. But I am even more excited because I am coming to Saudi Arabia, it will be the third women’s match ever there – the first-ever women’s triple threat match there. So, I am excited to compete with Sasha and Becky there – to be in Saudi Arabia and showing representation. Making change not in the ring, but also outside the ring, so I feel fortunate and blessed to be a part of that moment – and a part of that stamp in history.”

On potentially feuding with Rhea Ripley on Raw: “Anytime I get into the ring with Rhea Ripley, I am excited. The ending of the whole Royal Rumble where it was just me and Rhea – and we got to showcase what the future has in store at the end of Royal Rumble. She became RAW Women’s Champion, and I became SmackDown women’s champion – and we gave everybody a taste of it. To know we are on the same brand, and we can get into the ring once again, and create magic – show this new era of women’s wrestling that is peeking through, I can’t wait for that. To create magic with Rhea Ripley again. In NXT we came up together, we are still on our way. Rhea is special – and anytime, we are in the ring, I am excited.

On who she’d include in her all-women’s faction on the main roster: “I think, if we can all get along – me, Sasha and Naomi will be a great faction. We would mesh really well. We could work really work together. I just can’t trust Sasha right now. So, we cannot create this faction right now. But I have seen on social media as well, that they want this faction. I think it would be cool. But I don’t know if it would ever be possible, because we just cannot seem to get on the same page.”

On who she’s rooting for in the Queen’s Crown Tournament: “I am definitely going to keep an eye on that. I cannot wait because our locker room has so many great talents who are waiting for an opportunity to showcase what they can do. In the locker room, we all know what we are capable of and I am excited for the world to see that. You are going to see a lot of breakout stars and new women stars being made. Me, personally – I am rooting for Liv Morgan. or Rhea Ripley. I don’t know who all are in it – but I am rooting for all women, but I would love to see Rhea or Liv come out on top.”
