Sean Waltman On Bianca Belair vs. Sasha Banks: I Felt Feelings I Haven't Felt In A Long Time

Count Sean Waltman among the many who enjoyed Bianca Belair against Sasha Banks in the main event of WrestleMania 37.

Belair and Banks made history at WrestleMania 37, becoming the first Black women to main event WrestleMania and the first to compete in a singles match for a Women's Championship. It was an emotional moment for both women and many in the arena and watching at home, including 2020 Hall of Fame inductee Sean Waltman.

"Nothing came close to Bianca and Sasha," Waltman said on his Pro Wrestling 4 Life podcast when discussing WrestleMania 37. "That was huge. Cheers to TJ Wilson for producing that. I felt feelings that I haven't felt in a long time for a pro wrestling match. It was really important. Some people might go, 'it's not Black history, it's not women's history, it's just history.' No, this is historical for Black women. In general, Black women do not get the credit that they deserve. To see that and to see Bianca out there trying to hold back the tears. I'm trying not to cry right now. I know them. I worked with Bianca at the Performance Center and I've known Sasha for a while when she was with FCW. It was so cool to see it. It was important and it was a great match. A great main event."

Banks and Belair couldn't hide their emotions before and after the match with Belair soaking in the moment before the two touched and Banks smiling at the barricade after losing.
