Sasha Banks Reveals How And When She Found Out She Was Main-Eventing WWE WrestleMania 37 Night One
Banks and Belair tore the house down at WrestleMania 37
Sasha Banks has revealed how TJ Wilson was the one to tell her she would be main-eventing Night One of WWE WrestleMania 37.
Banks and Bianca Belair clashed over the SmackDown Women's Championship in the final match of Night One of WrestleMania 37, tearing the house down in an excellent match that saw Beliar claim her first Title in WWE.
The former champion has now revealed how she was pushing to close the Saturday night portion of 'The Showcase Of The Immortals', before being told by producer Wilson on the Wednesday prior to the show.
Speaking on Just Women's Sports podcast, Banks said: "The whole month was such an anxiety thing. We had no idea who was going to main event WrestleMania. The year before, I was telling my best friend Bayley, 'I'm going to main event WrestleMania 37.' It was always my dream to main event WrestleMania and I was just putting it out there to the universe and striving and working towards it.
"The month before WrestleMania, I really thought, I heard rumblings it was going to be the guys and I was like, 'What can I do?' All I can do is be me and keep on doing my work and show Vince that 'if I'm not the main event, I don't know what main event you're going to have.'
"Legit, the Wednesday before WrestleMania, I found out we were the main event. I was so nervous and was asking, 'Did you check the card, did anyone tell you?' 'You're not the main event.' 'No one told me that.' I was going to go to rehearsals and if I found out, all I could do is maybe ask Vince. I went to rehearsals and TJ Wilson told me that I was the main event and I instantly started crying. It was so overwhelming and it was crazy.
"It's the biggest thing you can do in wrestling and my heroes haven't gotten to do what I've done. Not only that, just being a woman and an African-American woman, we're checking off so many things. The biggest thing I got to check off was fully accomplishing everything I had written down as a kid. I'm on vacation right now, still soaking that in."
