All of these accolades have made her the #1 ranked female wrestler in the Pro Wrestling Illustrated rankings.

Belair lost her SmackDown title in a controversial manner when Becky Lynch defeated her in under 30 seconds. However, this barely sidelined Belair as she created history when she became part of the first-ever women’s championship at the WWE Crown Jewel PPV in Saudi Arabia.
