Bianca Belair may not be one of the most recognizable names in the NXT Women’s division, but she sure is one hell of a talent, which makes it even more unfortunate what happened to her during NXT’s live show in Mississauga, Ontario over the past few days.
Bianca was wrestling against Ember Moon, and as we know, her Eclipse is one of the most beautiful and devastating maneuvers in wrestling today. Unfortunately it can result in injury, and it may have done just that. Belair took the move very awkwardly, as you can see in the attached video, and immediately everyone involved knew something was wrong. While Bianca awkwardly kicked out of the pin, the referee counted it anyway to avoid any further damage. Following this, she was ushered to the back safely, and fans in attendance note that she was clutching her neck the whole way to the back, which definitely isn’t a promising sign.
We haven’t heard any further details on the situation unfortunately, but WWE are usually quick to let fans know what the situation is, so we will report on this further when we hear any more details emerge.
This is a tough situation for everyone involved, because it may hinder the growth of Belair as a performer and may slow her rise to a full-time member of TV. Although we doubt this will happen, it may cast doubts over how safe Ember Moon is as a performer. This is all just speculation, because accidents happen, and it seems this is just another one of those cases, so hopefully nothing more comes of it.
So what do you guys think? Does Belair have the potential to be an NXT Women’s Champion one day? Does this cast doubt over Moon as a safe performer? Let us know all your thoughts and ideas in the comment section below.
