In a riveting WWE Crown Jewel 2023 spectacle in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Bianca Belair made a triumphant return to the squared circle, aiming to capture the prestigious WWE Women’s Championship from IYO SKY. Although her quest fell short on that night, “The EST” already envisions her future beyond championship pursuits, expressing an eagerness for a dream feud—one that involves none other than the illustrious Charlotte Flair.
Belair’s Forward-Looking Aspirations:
In an interview, Belair disclosed her ambitions and shed light on a longstanding desire to engage in a legitimate singles feud with Charlotte Flair. While her immediate focus remains on challenging IYO SKY for the Women’s Championship, Belair sees a potential clash with Flair as a defining moment in her ongoing WWE journey.
“We’ve never actually had a legit feud in [a] singles match,” Belair said “For me, that’s at the top of my list. Of course, you know right now, it’s IYO SKY, getting my title from IYO SKY. She’s the champion right now, I’m going for her.
Reflecting on her admiration for Charlotte Flair, Belair shared, “When I first came into WWE, Charlotte was one of the first people I looked up to. Ric Flair’s her dad, but she came into WWE with zero wrestling experience; she was a collegiate athlete, so I saw myself in her.” The prospect of a “Belair versus Flair” showdown ignites her excitement, with hopes that this significant encounter will materialize sooner rather than later.

Belair and Flair’s Limited History:
While recent episodes of “WWE SmackDown” have seen Belair and Flair forming an alliance against the common threat of Damage CTRL, their history in singles competition remains relatively limited. The dynamic duo has crossed paths only three times, with clashes occurring on both “WWE NXT” and “WWE Raw.”
“And I remember being in ‘NXT,’ being like, ‘If I’m ever where Charlotte is, I want to have a match with her.’ I think that Belair versus Flair, that’s a big match, so I’m hoping one day that it happens. I look forward to the day that it happens because that’s one person I’ve been kept away from for the most part.”
Their inaugural encounter transpired on “WWE NXT” in February 2020, with Charlotte Flair emerging victorious. Their second bout unfolded on “WWE Raw” on October 4, 2021, witnessing Belair secure a notable win via disqualification. Despite a subsequent title defense where Flair retained the “Raw” Women’s Championship, Belair’s fervor for a comprehensive feud with the accomplished Flair remains unabated.
Future Feud Brewing:
Belair’s aspirations signify not just a desire for in-ring competition but a strategic move towards creating memorable storylines within the WWE narrative. The prospect of a Belair-Flair feud brings together two powerful and dynamic forces in women’s wrestling, promising a clash that could captivate the WWE Universe.
As Bianca Belair continues her pursuit of championship glory, the anticipation surrounding a potential feud with Charlotte Flair adds an extra layer of excitement to her already illustrious career.
