Sasha Banks is ready to make history at WrestleMania 37.
At night one of WrestleMania 37, Sasha Banks will defend her SmackDown Women's Championship against Bianca Belair in a historical matchup pitting two African-American women against each other for a major championship at WrestleMania for the first time ever.
Speaking to Erika Nardini on Token CEO podcast, Banks discussed the magnitude of the match and how she's been calling her best friend to help get her through.
"I've been crying all morning. It's Monday, WrestleMania is on Saturday. I can't believe this 10-year-old girl is about to live her dream and main event WrestleMania, I truly believe that. To see someone like Bianca Belair, who is brand new and just came into the game. She won the Royal Rumble, she's so athletic and so incredible. She is the future of WWE, and so am I, I'm younger, don't forget. At WrestleMania, we will be main eventing. This is my first singles match at WrestleMania and it's the first time it's two African-American women will be headlining WrestleMania. This is crazy because it's bigger than me. The beautiful thing is, everything I've done with WWE, not only has it been for me, but it's been bigger than me because of the impact it's made on so many amazing people all over the world of every color and race. I'm letting it all sink in. I've been calling my friend Bayley all morning, 'Oh my God, I'm freaking out.' I'm so thankful," said Banks.
WWE has not confirmed if Banks vs. Belair or Drew McIntyre vs. Bobby Lashley for the WWE Title will headline night one of WrestleMania 37. McIntyre has often stated in interviews that he would be fine opening the show.
