Booker T Names Bianca Belair As WWE's Most Improved Performer Of 2021
High praise from the WWE Hall Of Famer
Booker T has named Bianca Belair as the most improved wrestler in WWE over the last year.
Belair enjoyed a terrific 2021, winning the Women's Royal Rumble and claiming the SmackDOwn Women's Championship in the main event of Night One of WrestleMania 37, as well as putting on match of the year candidates with Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch at 'Mania and Crown Jewel, respectively.
Speaking on his Hall Of Fame Podcast, Booker said: "I would say Bianca Belair, championship material, but more importantly most improved. I try not to put the carriage before the horse. Bianca is really, really good but I just do not want to put that pressure on her to be thinking like that when, then again, she’s good, she’s really, really good.
“As far as being ranked number one, I would give her that honor but it’s not just from a wrestling perspective. It’s how far Bianca Belair has come so quickly, so quickly.
“I mean she like rose out of the ashes to be a contender like Rocky Balboa against Apollo Creed and then go out and win. Not because of any other reason than she’s talented just like Rocky. So, yeah man give her the props."
