Sam Roberts left a clear thing during the premiere panel of TakeOver Phoenix from NXT … he does not think that Bianca Belair deserves to be in the show.
The conversation occurred when Sam was debating about the NXT Women's Championship championship with Charly Caruso and Pat McAfee.
"It's not worth taking Takeover," Roberts said. "Bianca Belair, she is a good athlete … but, like … look at the list of women's champions. You have Shayna Baszler, you have Charlotte, you have Sasha Banks, you have Asuka, you have Kairi Sane! This is a list of women's champions. Elite women in wrestling. And Bianca Belair is not close to this list. "
Sam also says Bianca vs. Shayna would be good at NXT TV, but not on TakeOver.
Probably, the time was a script before way, but it definitely attracted many viewers out of the guard, as Roberts usually plays directly during pre-shows.
