Watch WWE Superstar Bianca Belair Conquers World's Tallest Building ahead of Night of Champions
The RAW Women's Champion is already in a conquering mindset as she prepares for Asuka, as the big day is finally here!
The WWE Universe is now only mere hours – not months, weeks, or days – away from Night of Champions, an event promising high-stakes matches usually reserved for events like WrestleMania.
Despite the immense pressure on the shoulders of every WWE Superstar slated to compete Saturday, some competitors have learned to alleviate some of that stress by doing what any "normal" person would do in this scenario – be the best tourist they can be. In the case of Bianca Belair, Montez Ford, and Mustafa Ali, that means heading to Dubai and scaling the world's tallest building!
Three WWE Superstars' Personal Search for Motivation
WWE's official Twitter account documented the trio's journey – a warning for those scared of heights, though. The Burj Khalifa is over half a mile tall, easily winning the award for tallest skyscraper ever.
(We don't know about you guys, but we're dizzy just watching this video.)
The trio reflected on their trip to the top of the Burj Khalifa, reporting that not only was it thrilling and a once-in-a-lifetime memory they now share, but it also gave them the motivation they were looking for to win their respective matches at Night of Champions. Although Montez Ford isn't slated for action, Mustafa Ali will be vying for the Intercontinental Championship against Gunther, while Bianca Belair will try to fend off Asuka in a WrestleMania rematch for Bianca's RAW Women's title.
These two matches are just a piece of the impressive Night of Champions lineup, an event that Triple H promises will be "historic."
Historic Matches Will Take Place at Night of Champions
The World Heavyweight Championship will be decided for the first time in nearly a decade as Seth Rollins and AJ Styles will clash in the tournament finals that have taken place over the last few weeks to decide the titleholder. Although it may seem that both competitors are focusing more on Roman Reigns lately than the task at hand, the WWE Universe will undoubtedly be treated to one of the most impressive in-ring performances in recent memory – that's how good Rollins and Styles are.
Monday Night RAW has been clamoring for a fighting champion ever since Roman Reigns took the WWE Championship away from RAW many months ago. Whoever wins the World Heavyweight Championship will be expected – by both the WWE Universe and the WWE locker room – to lead the brand into an exciting new direction.
Night of Champions will also see Cody Rhodes and Brock Lesnar face off again as the American Nightmare looks for revenge after Lesnar's vicious attack on his arm in recent weeks. Toppling the Beast Incarnate may be too tall of a task for Cody, however, especially in light of Triple H's recent announcement:
Despite a broken arm (Cody does not have the best luck in staying healthy since he returned to WWE), the American Nightmare's match against Brock Lesnar in Saudi Arabia is still on – a testament to Cody's grit and determination. Injured or not, Cody is facing an uphill battle: It's hard enough for a WWE Superstar to defeat Brock Lesnar, let alone twice in a row.
However, the action doesn't stop there: The Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships will be on the line as Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens defend against the super-team of Roman Reigns and Solo Sikoa! The four men have been intertwined for the better part of a year, and any fan who thought this classic rivalry was slated to end at WrestleMania turned out to be sorely mistaken.
Many things are at play here, from the continued significance of Roman Reigns' historic stranglehold over the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship to the seemingly-unraveling alliance between the two Bloodline members. If the Bloodline wins, Reigns will collect yet another title – whether the WWE Universe likes it or not.
The rest of the Night of Champions lineup reads like a who's-who of professional wrestling. Becky Lynch and Trish Stratus will meet in a grudge match that transcends generations. Rhea Ripley will defend the SmackDown women's title against an unsure Natalya. This is all, of course, in addition to the Intercontinental Title match and RAW Women's Championship bout mentioned earlier.
Wow. It's OK to take a breath, everyone. Night of Champions promises to be historic, just like Triple H said.
There's nothing left to be said except sit back, relax, and enjoy Night of Champions – and if you ever need motivation, we heard going to the top of the Burj Khalifa does the trick.
