Sasha Banks defended her Smackdown Women’s Championship against Bianca Belair on Night One of WrestleMania 37, in its main event. It was a historic match as the two competitors gave it their all including the kitchen sink in order to win the match. Ultimately, it was Bianca Belair who emerged victorious in the title match and became the new Smackdown Women’s Champion in the process. The two also had a genuine moment where they shed tears in the ring.
Sasha Banks recently spoke on Rasslin’ with Brandon F. Walker, where she talked about John Cena returning to WWE and then proclaimed that her match against Bianca Belair at WWE SummerSlam will be better than John Cena vs Roman Reigns at the same pay-per-view.
“Well the feeling is it’s great to have someone like John Cena back,” Banks said. “What a legend. What a freakin legend. Just someone that’s lending their name to the WWE history. He’s just great. At the house shows I’m watching him and you look around and you see the fans. Little kids that have probably never seen John Cena because he’s been gone for the last five, six years. But they still know who he is and they’re still so entranced with his work and what he does.
And Roman Reigns? He’s on a whole different level. He’s on a whole different game with having Paul Heyman and having the Bloodline by his side. He’s hungry to prove that he is the top dog in this business. So I think that match is definitely one to watch. But it’s definitely not going to be better than Bianca vs. Sasha Banks.”
