Bianca Belair Reveals When She Found Out She Was Main Eventing WrestleMania 37

Bianca Belair Reveals When She Found Out She Was Main Eventing WrestleMania 37 WWE

The second-ever women’s WrestleMania main event took place on WrestleMania 37 Night One, when SmackDown Women’s Champion Sasha Banks defended her championship against 2021 Royal Rumble winner Bianca Belair.

The match was one of the best of the night, and saw Bianca defeat Banks to make history to capture her first women’s championship.

The show also saw several other big matches, including Bobby Lashley vs Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship, which ultimately ended up opening the show.

Bianca spoke to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful recently, where she revealed that there was back and forth in the company about what match would be main eventing the show, and that she found out that her and Sasha were main eventing at the same time as everyone else.

She said:

“I feel like we found out at the same time as everyone else on Twitter. It was a lot of back and forth between who was going to main event and who wasn’t. A lot of our fans on Twitter were doing hashtags and really pushing for it. We found out, I believe, the day before WrestleMania that we were going to be the main event. Some people think maybe that’s scary, but it didn’t give me time to think or get too nervous. We just had to go out there and do what we do and that’s what we did.”

Bianca would go on to have another match for a women’s championship against Becky Lynch the following year, which many people advocated to be the main event of that show as well.
