WrestleMania 37 began after months of buildup and anticipation, as well as several weeks of hype. WWE’s first live show in almost a year due to the pandemic took place on the first night of the two-day WrestleMania extravaganza.
The event at Raymond James Stadium drew a large crowd, exceeding expectations and whetting fans’ appetites for the second night’s activity.
WWE superstar Bianca Belair sat down with Access Daily’s Mario Lopez and his children, Dominic and Gia, before her big match to discuss her upcoming WrestleMania 37 appearance. Belair also talked about her childhood goals and how she became successful in the ring. Her responses came out as encouraging life advise for the kids.
“Just be yourself and stay true to your identity, even if it makes you stand out.” “Never give up; just keep trying and beginning over every day,” she said.
On the first night of WrestleMania 37, Belair’s highly anticipated bout and historic win created history as the first time the main event included two women in a singles match at a WrestleMania, and the first time two African-American women have squared off for a world title on the year’s largest show. The battle was particularly significant in terms of representation.
Belair positioned herself as the No. 1 contender from the moment she won the 2021 Royal Rumble, dubbing herself the “EST of WWE.” Fans had been anticipating a WrestleMania bout between her and Sasha Banks, called “The Boss,” and the two delivered a match that beyond all expectations.
The Boss struck first, but Belair retaliated quickly, and the tide would flip in an instant whenever each girl tried for the winning move. Belair eventually defeated Banks, ending Banks’ five-month reign as WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion, which she had earned by defeating Bayley at Hell in a Cell.
With her triumphant WrestleMania debut, Belair won the new SmackDown Women’s Champion and made sports entertainment history.

Her Road to the WWE
While growing up, the EST of WWE was not a fan of professional wrestling. She intended to follow in the footsteps of Florence Griffith Joyner, Gail Devers, and Dominique Dawes as a former collegiate track athlete and CrossFit competitor. Belair had no intention of joining wrestling, but fate intervened.
Her CrossFit career was cut short due to an unfortunate case of costochondritis (moving rib syndrome). Mark Henry, a former WWE wrestler, national champion weightlifter, and Olympian power lifter, spotted her when she was recovering and looking for new chances and offered her a WWE tryout.

She gained attention and admiration for her talent from both fans and athletes in just under five years. She created her reputation on the NXT circuit as a confident yet engaging figure with her distinctive braided hair, which she utilizes as a whip in the ring.
Belair’s unashamed approach to representation has also made waves. Belair is passionate to celebrating her past, whether it’s through her self-made Black History-themed ring wear or the daily reading recommendations by Black writers she provided last year.
