Knoxville Citizen – WWE Superstar Bianca Belair, A Knoxville native, loses a close match at NXT Championship

Bianca Belair, a WWE Superstar who ran track at Austin-East Magnet High School and the University of Tennessee, competed in the NXT Women’s Championship Sunday evening in Portland, Oregon.

During her time at Austin-East she impressed the state by winning TSSAA state titles in the 100m hurdles and 300m in 2006 and 2007, helping the Roadrunners win the 2007 state title.

The Match!

Belair took on Rhea Ripley for the NXT Championship and while it was a hard fought battle, Ripley eventually overcame adversity and won the battle.

There was an intense exchange of blows after Ripley had climbed high upon the top turnbuckle, but Belair gained the advantage as she lifted Ripley over her head and slammed her with with many would call a military press slam!

Ultimately, Belair fought a good fight, but it ended quickly as Belair was hit by the Riptide for the 3 count and Rhea Ripley retained the NXT Women’s Championship belt.

The Knoxville native joined the WWE franchise in April of 2016 and she continues to do our community proud.
