Bianca Belair has been on a rocket straight to the top in 2021. She won the women’s Royal Rumble match in January and recently made the announcement that she will be facing Sasha Banks at WrestleMania.
This match will have a lot of firsts for WWE as this will mark the first time two African-American women will compete in a singles match at WrestleMania. Belair is well aware of the opportunity before her as she recently talked about how she is going to WrestleMania to create history. Here is the quote, courtesy of Wrestling Inc.:
“I say stay ready so you don’t have to get ready but it’s WrestleMania, you have to prepare for WrestleMania no matter what,” she said. “But now I can start getting ready and I can start wrapping my mind around the fact that I will be at WrestleMania on The Grandest Stage of Them All with Sasha Banks. Two Afro-females, black Afro-females… what it represents is, really sending a powerful message to the world. She motivates me, I see everything she’s doing and I’m happy for her, but I wanna do it, too.
I’m going to WrestleMania to create history, but I’m also going there to become a champion. That’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to show everybody that I am the strongest, and the fastest, the roughest, the toughest, the quickest, the greatest, that I’m the B-E-S-T, since Sasha wants to call herself the best. When it’s all said and done, and I’m standing there raising the title over my head, the proof will be that I am exactly what I say I am, that I’m the EST of WWE.”
Bianca Belair made the decision to face Sasha Banks on last week’s SmackDown. They will battle over the SmackDown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 37.
