As seen below, WWE released video of Belair’s first moments as champion. There’s also footage of husband Montez Ford celebrating with Belair as she returned backstage.

Belair also appeared on the WWE Watch Along stream as soon as she got backstage. You can also see footage of that appearance below.

“It’s just an amazing feeling,” Belair said. “I knew I had to give it my all, Sasha Banks is amazing and I can’t thank her enough. I love competition and she brought it. I wanted to face the best Sasha Banks and I had to bring my best. I will say I am ready for a rematch because I want to prove that tonight… I want to cement it, that I am the EST of WWE.”

Belair also thanked Triple H and Vince McMahon for the opportunity. You can see her first post-match interview below.
