Sasha Banks defended her Smackdown Women’s Championship against Bianca Belair on Night One of WrestleMania 37, in its main event. It was a historic match as the two competitors gave it their all including the kitchen sink in order to win the match. Ultimately, it was Bianca Belair who emerged victorious in the title match and became the new Smackdown Women’s Champion in the process. The two also had a genuine moment where they shed tears in the ring. Sasha Banks also leaked a photo after cancelling a match.
Sasha Banks was set to face off against Bianca Belair at WWE SummerSlam for the Smackdown Women’s Championship. However, she never showed up and instead, Becky Lynch came out and beat Bianca Belair for the title in under 26 seconds. She made her return at WWE Extreme Rules and is now set to challenge for the title at WWE Crown Jewel in a triple threat match against Bianca Belair and Becky Lynch.
According to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer stated that Sasha Banks might be very different after WWE Crown Jewel.
“The women’s side, there is no top women babyface on SmackDown, I’m figuring that Sasha Banks becomes a babyface, because the other two top women stars are Charlotte Flair, who absolutely shouldn’t be a babyface and Shayna Baszler who appears, based on how she’s being booked is not a babyface.”
