Two WWE talents have voiced their displeasure with the Smackdown Women’s Championship WrestleMania 37 build.
At Fastlane on Sunday, Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair challenge Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles. This is less than a month before Belair challenges Banks for her Smackdown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 37.
Corey Graves and Vic Joseph are not excited for the Fastlane match. On WWE After The Bell, both noted that Banks and Belair do not need the tag titles for their already highly anticipated WrestleMania clash.
Graves and Joseph explained that they just want the two women to show what they can do in the ring, without complicating their WrestleMania build.
Here is the full quote:
“I think they can co-exist but I’m riding the fence on this. WrestleMania 23 your main event was John Cena and Shawn Michaels they were your tag team champions going into that main event. As time went on over the years, the event before WrestleMania for whatever reason, the main events always meshed in tag team matches. I was always like, I don’t want to see this, save it for me.
“The Nia / Shayna story is about two foes that became partners so I’ve seen it enough. I’m out on it, I would love to see them as tag team champions but not what is leading into a WrestleMania story because I believe the two individuals themselves have a great story just based on Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair, the Tom Brady vs. Patrick Mahomes scenario. I don’t need anything to water this down. Let it breathe on it’s own, let it naturally blossom into what I believe will be a phenomenal WrestleMania moment come April.”
“Could not be any further out as it pertains to the tag team title match,” Graves said. “Sasha and Bianca don’t need it. Two mega stars, this is one of the matches that is simple. Just let it be! It’s fine, Sasha Banks arguably the best female performer in the world right now, Bianca Belair is not there yet, but guess what? You know what will put her a hell of a lot closer? A win at WrestleMania.
“I’m here, I’m curious, I’m a fan, I just want to watch that happen, let it unfold. The more you muddy the waters, the less I wanna drink it.”
Sasha Banks won the Smackdown Women’s Championship from Bayley in one of the best WWE matches of 2020 at Hell in a Cell. Bianca Belair last eliminated Rhea Ripley to win the 2021 women’s Royal Rumble match.
Belair officially challenged Banks for WrestleMania 37 at the end of February. Since then, the two single stars have been feuding with Jax and Baszler.
WrestleMania tickets went on sale yesterday. It is being reported that tickets didn’t sell out instantly as some expected them to, less than a month away from the two-night event.
