WRESTLEMANIA 37: Banks vs Belair to officially headline night one

Posted on 4/10/121 by Colin Vassallo

WWE has officially announced that Sasha Banks and Bianca
Belair will be headlining night one of WrestleMania 37

Its going to be a historic night for Banks and Belair as
they become the first African-American women to headline a
WrestleMania and it is only the second time that women have
had this honor following WrestleMania 35 where Becky Lynch,
Ronda Rousey, and Charlotte Flair had their moment.

In comments given to TheUndefeated.com, an emotional Banks
thanked those who came before her for allowing her the
opportunity to be able to do this. I hope it just means to
them that their hard work and efforts didnt get unnoticed.
Its because of everything that they did that Im here now,
and I thank them so much.

Belair also echoed her statements saying that both she and
Sasha are a representation for all the Black women that came
before them who laid a foundation and all the groundwork
before them.

Its us physically in the ring, but they are in this match
right along with us. So I just want them to know that were
paying tribute to them, were honoring them, were
representing for them. I want people to know that when they
see us, I want them to see them as well. Because without
them, this wouldnt be happening, she said.
