WWE superstar Montez Ford couldn’t contain his emotions as he watched his wife, Bianca Belair, make history on Friday Night SmackDown. Standing alongside Jade Cargill and Naomi, Belair’s presence in the ring marked a significant moment for representation in the WWE.

Speaking exclusively to Us Weekly, Ford expressed his pride, highlighting the groundbreaking nature of the moment. “I’ve never seen SmackDown close out that way. Ever,” Ford said. “I’ve never seen three African American women point to the WrestleMania sign, letting their stake be known.”

Belair, Cargill, and Naomi are set to compete in a highly anticipated match on Night 1 of WrestleMania XL, showcasing the diversity and talent within the WWE roster.

As Ford emphasized, this moment is just the beginning for his wife and her partners. “They’re letting everyone know that they’re here, man,” he said. “The aura of seeing them standing there and joining together in unity, there were so many things in that small time period that got everybody excited.”

Reflecting on his own journey with WWE, Ford noted the company’s growing diversity and the wealth of talent it represents. “It just shows how much talent is truly in the company. We’re a melting pot,” he explained. “There are so many different cultures, beliefs, and attributes. There are just so many different elements.”

Despite their busy schedules, Ford and Belair find inspiration in their family, whose support keeps them grounded. “Seeing them gives us motivation,” Ford shared. “Seeing the smiles on their faces, it just gives us the extra edge to go out there and do more just so we can get back and see the same thing.”

With WrestleMania XL on the horizon, both Ford and Belair are ready to continue their ascent in the WWE, fueled by their passion and the unwavering support of their loved ones.
