It’s well worth 30 minutes of your time. Most WWE Documentary features are, but I’d give this one a spot near the top of my power rankings. That’s largely because Belair is such a charismatic, relatable person - and one with a powerful story.
This edition of Chronicle is motivational, as Bianca opens up about overcoming eating disorders, and a bout of depression that led to hospitalization. It’s romantic, as we learn how she and hubby Montez Ford met in NXT and fell in love. It’s also powerfully of the moment, as Belair speaks about how important it is for her to be a representative of Black culture.
Another cool thing about the release of this episode is it’s given a lot of people a chance to celebrate Bianca - notably her colleagues.
Bianca is so obviously a star. I didn’t know her story but she’s going to positively impact so many lives. She’s so easy to root for. https://t.co/Hzc9YMwkgM— Florida Man (@WWEBigE) January 24, 2021
Really excited to see this @BiancaBelairWWE Chronicle (also my dude @redlight24fps ain’t too shabby at what he does) but I’ve always been admittedly kinda fascinated by Bianca. Stars like her don’t just come around. A bright light in and out of the ring!— Renee Paquette (@ReneePaquette) January 24, 2021

Just had the pleasure of watching my girl’s #WWEChronicle and it is truly an inspiring story. Her work ethic is unmatched & I’m honored to have teamed with her & call her a friend. pic.twitter.com/dzu01LSinj
Now, it’s not unusual for Superstars to stick together and hype one another’s projects. Maybe it’s the nature of Bianca’s story, but the support felt a little different this time around. It’s earnest, and if you watch Chronicle, I think you’ll agree it’s earned.
It’s why it’s no wonder NXT’s Josiah Williams declared Sunday...
