“Just the thought of Sasha Banks and I having a match at WrestleMania gives me goosebumps,” Belair said. “I’ve said this before, it’s not about feeding my ego, it’s so much bigger than just having a wrestling match. Just having two strong women whose characters stand for, you know we are alpha females.
“We want to empower women, and having two females who stand for the exact same thing and two African-American women standing in the same ring, that is top-level representation right there and that’s for women, that’s for black women.”
Last year @BiancaBelairWWE only had a few hours to prepare for the Royal Rumble…
She still threw out eight women and lasted over half an hour 😳
