Bianca Belair Could Reportedly Be Off WWE TV Up To 3 Months

Two weeks ago on WWE Friday Night Smackdown, following a tag team victory alongside Charlotte Flair over Damage CTRL, Bianca Belair was attacked by the all-female faction backstage. Bayley initiated the blindside by hitting The EST of WWE in the back with a chair before IYO SKY and a currently injured Dakota Kai jumped in to help. The three women threw Belair into production cases and eventually got her to the ground, where Bayley wrapped a chair around her left leg, and SKY hit her in the knee with a chair of her own. It was a brutal-looking attack, and the intensity appears to have been intentional.

Fightful reports that Belair will be off WWE TV selling her knee injury for between one and three months. The former WWE Raw and Smackdown Women’s Champion has been scheduled to get time off, and this injury angle was something the company factored in as a way to remove her from TV. It was noted that during Belair’s historic 420-day run as WWE Raw Women’s Champion, she impressed a lot of people backstage with the “insane” media and community events schedule she agreed to.

I can personally attest to that schedule, as Belair has been a regular at all WWE on-site media events during their premium live events. Her husband, Montez Ford, has routinely attended many of the same events alongside her and, during WWE SummerSlam week, gave Haus of Wrestling an update on his and Belair’s Hulu reality show project.

“We’ve basically been filming all the way up since January,” he began. “We kind of finished wrapping up yesterday, just yesterday, and it’s been pretty much ongoing like Smackdown, live event, live event, sometimes Raw, and then you will film, film, film, film, and then you go back home, and pretty much also, you go back on the road, and then you do the live shows again. So, we’ve been doing that non-stop for the last, pretty much, eight months.”

Between defending her title regularly, making media and community event appearances, and filming a reality show, it seems Belair is more than well deserving of a little time away from the ring. Ford, on the other hand, is busier than ever on WWE TV, with him and his The Street Profits partner Angelo Dawkins beginning an alliance with Bobby Lashley on Smackdown and popping up on WWE NXT last night.
