Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair put up an excellent performance during the event. The EST of WWE showcased her pure strength when she carried The Boss overhead and carried her to the ring. On the other hand, Banks played her role well and sold every move throughout the match.

Keeping the match apart, the entire build up to the match was a thrilling experience. Since the moment Bianca Belair won the Royal Rumble women’s match to them stepping inside the ring together, everything was stellar.

Moreover, with this match, the duo created another history. They became the second time for women to headline the WrestleMania main event. The first one was at WrestleMania 35 when Charlotte Flair, Ronda Rousey, and Becky Lynch headlined the main event in a triple threat match.

Keeping Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair’s WrestleMania 37 match aside, other moments nominated are Edge’s Royal Rumble victory, Bianca Belair’s Royal Rumble victory, and Bad Bunny’s debut.

Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair are yet to have their rematch

Usually, Superstars have a rematch after a title match. However, after WrestleMania 37, The Boss and The EST of WWE did not have their rematch. Banks took a break from the ring while Belair moved on to a storyline with Bayley.

It’s not yet confirmed if Sasha Banks will return to the ring anytime soon. There were some reports which claimed The Boss will return to the squared circle on July 16th, 2021. This is the same day WWE is restarting the tours.

It’s possible the company deliberately did not book a rematch between Sasha Banks and Belair. This rematch will reel in the audience. And having it in front of the live audience will generate much more revenue than if it happened when the audience was watching events via virtual means.
