Bianca Belair discusses how she handles high-pressure situations she's faced and how she found out that she and Sasha would main event WrestleMania 37.
The day before Money in the Bank, the WWE took part in a community event at the Three Square Food Bank in Las Vegas to help support families in need. Fightful's Sean Ross Sapp had the chance to speak with the WWE Raw Women's Champion Bianca Belair who was at the event volunteering.
Bianca Belair has had two WWE Championship matches at WrestleMania 37 and 38, and she explained how she handles high-pressure situations.
"I definitely look forward to them. I’ve been an athlete my whole life. So I’ve learned how to embrace the feeling of nervousness and not get scared of it. My daddy always taught me, ‘It’s okay to be nervous, just don’t be scared." said Bianca.
"When you’re in WWE whenever someone asks you what your goals are, it’s always to go to WrestleMania or main event WrestleMania or become champion. I’ve done that at back-to-back WrestleMania's."
"So I’m developing this reputation that I’m gonna have to continue to live up to. I’m looking forward to living up to that reputation and just continue to show that I am the E-S-T of WWE and I want continue to be the talk of WrestleMania's from the last two years and years going forward." said
Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks would face off one-on-one in the main event of WrestleMania 37. Bianca would explain how she and found out that they would main eventing.
“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.”
It was only the second time in WWE history that a Women's Championship match would main event WrestleMania.
