“And after you put an idea in my head and somebody tells me I don’t know if you can do that, I’m like, well now I’m going to go and do it. And I did it,” the 143 lb star added. The former SmackDown Women’s Champion confesses that her fitness competition fell in around a “rough time.” It was during her Last Man Standing match against the Role Model, Bayley at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia.

It was tough for Bianca Belair, as she would sometimes reach her hotel at 1 o’clock in the morning after finishing her duties. She mentions that despite having a super busy schedule, she did it all. She says it was “a personal journey” for her because of her “unhealthy relationship with food and struggle with her eating disorders.” 

The Raw Women’s Champion takes pride in stating that she did it. And it was “an amazing feeling and an amazing journey” for her.
