The EST with WME. According to a new report from Variety, WWE superstar Bianca Belair has signed an exclusive contract with the William Morris Agency, the oldest and longest-running talent agency in America.
The report states that with the signing, the powerhouse Hollywood agency will work to build her business across podcasting, acting, marketing, and more.
Belair was originally a track and field standout at the University of Tennessee, where she earned All-SEC and All-American Honors. She first signed with WWE in 2016, joining the sports entertainment giant’s developmental brand, NXT. During her time there, she challenged for the NXT Women’s Championship on multiple occasions and went on a winning streak that lasted just over a year.
She was promoted to the main roster in 2020 with her debut on “Monday Night Raw” following WrestleMania 36. She was drafted to the “SmackDown” brand shortly thereafter. Since then, she has quickly established herself as one of the top figures in the company.
Belair is currently slated to team with Asuka and Alexa Bliss to take on the team of Bayley, Dakota Kai, and Iyo Sky at the upcoming Clash at the Castle premium live event.
This move makes complete sense on both sides, and I’m incredibly happy that she is going to get this opportunity. She is incredibly marketable, both inside and outside of the ring and I think she has a bright future and is doing whatever she wants to do in the entertainment world!
