• Reason Behind Bianca Belair Being Off WWE Programming
Bianca Belair made her WWE main roster debut at WrestleMania 36 by showing up during The Street Profits’ RAW Tag Team Championship match against Angel Garza and Austin Theory.
Belair worked a few episodes of RAW after that, and then disappeared suddenly. She was last seen on TV on the April 20th episode of RAW, where she wrestled Santana Garrett.
Dave Meltzer discussed this on the F4WOnline message board:
“She was introduced. Then somebody decided on wacky skits she didn’t fit in. So they didn’t put her on TV because she wasn’t in any program. Now it’s a new cycle and we’ll see.”
It looks like that The EST of WWE won’t be back until the creative team has a proper program for her.
