Tennessee honors Bianca Belair ahead of her homecoming on SmackDown

Yesterday (Sept. 16), the Tennessee Senate officially honored Bianca Belair in a joint resolution.

And this thing is legit, scripted fight fans. They used her shoot name!

The process of earning a WrestleMania title shot via throwing people out of the ring at Royal Rumble is now documented by the legislature of one of the United States of America. And they say our political system is broken...

Belair’s big day on Thursday will lead to another celebration on Friday. WWE’s announced a homecoming celebration for The EST tonight when SmackDown comes our way from Bianca’s hometown of Knoxville:

After a groundbreaking year, Bianca Belair returns to home to Knoxville to be honored on SmackDown!

Join the blue brand and a proud city as The EST of WWE is recognized for her tremendous achievements, from winning the 2021 Royal Rumble Match to headlining WrestleMania in a history-making SmackDown Championship Match against Sasha Banks to her monumental title reign.

No mention there of the current SmackDown Women’s champ, but with a Belair vs. Becky Lynch rematch booked for Extreme Rules next weekend, expect The Man to make her presence felt.

The late preview for the Sept. 17 edition of the blue brand also includes follow-up from Seth Rollins’ attack on Edge last Friday, and Rick Boogs vs. Robert Roode.
