Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair main evented night one of WrestleMania 37. Banks didn’t know she was in the main event until the day before the show. She also talked about how hard it was to be the main event of the first show with fans after a year and a half due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sasha appeared on The Kurt Angle Show and talked about the experience of finding out she was going to be on WrestleMania. She said it was TJ Wilson who told her. She said she cried when she heard the news.

“I didn’t know that we were going to main event WrestleMania but I was praying and dreaming about it. I felt like I was competing with Drew [McIntyre] and Bobby [Lashley] and that whole week. I was like ‘do I talk to Vince? Do I not?’ I was like yanno what, if he thinks I’m frickin good and can main event then let it happen. Next thing you know, I get to frickin WrestleMania and I find out I’m main eventing. How frickin cool is that? The day before, I’m like wow.

Everything can come into fruition if you just don’t give up on your dream. I went out there and I was on a whole different level and zone, I’ve never been in the ring like that. This was our first time back in front of fans for a year and a half that I just couldn’t believe even happened.


To wrestle without fans is one of the hardest things I’ve ever experienced but I’m so thankful to know that I can do it and I can do anything. To be rewarded with WrestleMania 37 against Bianca Belair, who her talent just speaks for itself. She came in so fast, so quick and got it. She is incredible and I just loved to see her growth. For her to come in so quick and fast and get like this, I can’t wait to see in the next five years how good she’s going to be.”

Sasha Banks said the emotion of the moment made it hard to stick to her heel character. She put aside the emotion and got through the match. It will always be remembered as a landmark WrestleMania moment.
