The 2021 Women’s Royal Rumble Winner recently joined FOX Sports’ Ryan Satin for an exclusive interview. She talked about everything from Triple H’s influence to her Royal Rumble victory, including a potential match with ‘The Boss’ at WrestleMania.

Bianca Belair said, “A match between Sasha Banks and I would be very special. I don’t know who I’m gonna challenge yet. I’m emotional right now, it’s a huge decision. I think it would be a great match either way, but I’m so emotional right now, I want to wait till I keep my emotions in check and weigh my options.”

The ‘EST of WWE’ weighed in on the buzz online to see her vs Sasha Banks and said a match between the two would be more than a normal wrestling match. We cannot disagree!

She said, “It would be a great match. It’s more than just the match. You have these two alpha females who represent women’s empowerment. Just us standing in the ring, without us even doing anything or saying anything, it could really push a message that everyone can relate to and be inspired by.”

Belair hasn’t chosen her opponent for WrestleMania, and there is a lot to look at. She has never won a championship in the WWE, but it’s highly unlikely that she would go for the NXT Women’s Championship when there is already a big-money program with Sasha Banks.

Although Bianca Belair is denying constantly, we all know she will challenge ‘The Blueprint’ for the SmackDown Women’s Championship. The simple thought of their encounter at the ‘Show of Shows‘ gives one chills! Imagine what the actual match would be like.
