One of the biggest moments for the WWE in recent times is the completion of their merger with UFC and coming under the common ownership of Endeavor. The merger led to the formation of TKO Holdings, whose stocks were listed on the New York Stock Exchange. To mark the first day of trading, Vince McMahon, Triple H, Ariel Emanuel, Mark Shapiro, and Dana White made it to the building.
The EST of WWE, Bianca Belair, had an incredible 420-day run as the WWE Women’s Champion before she was dethroned by Asuka. But after her triple-threat match against Asuka and Charlotte Flair, she lost the title to Iyo Sky who cashed in her MITB. She has been written off the TV screen after a backstage segment where she was attacked by Damage CTRL members on August 18th.

Despite her break, she made time to appear for the historic moment for WWE by going to the New York Stock Exchange. Speaking exclusively to Metro.co.uk, she said, “It was exciting just to be part of a historic moment. Being able to be there representing WWE was an honor. It’s very exciting because it’s a new chapter.”
She felt excited being part of the historic moment and felt honored as 34-year-old Belair and her husband Montez Ford accompanied Triple H. She considers the listing of TKO Holdings on the NYSE to be the beginning of a new chapter for WWE as it will lead to new opportunities.
She further stated, “Everyone is on the edge of, “What’s coming? What’s happening next?” so I’m just excited for whatever can come out of this and what’s going to come out of this. It’s going to be great.” But what else is she doing in her break to keep herself busy?
Bianca Belair worked tirelessly during her 420-day title reign when she also became the longest-reigning African-American WWE Champion. However, she is still doing things to keep herself engaged even during her break.
In the Interview, she stated how she is trying to write children’s books and other DIY projects to stay occupied. The WWE couple is also busy shooting for their Hulu reality series The Crawfords, which will probably drop at the beginning of next year. Bianca further stated that she is also binge-watching all five seasons of Temptation Island during her break.
