The ESPN ESPY Awards aired tonight on ABC. One of the awards handed out as a WWE award for the Best WWE Moment.
The winner of the award was the WrestleMania 37 main event on night one when Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks headlined the show. Belair beating Banks for the Smackdown Women’s Title was a huge match that delivered.
Here’s the official announcement from WWE:
Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks just made history… again!
In a category that also featured Belair and Edge’s Royal Rumble Match victories, as well as Bad Bunny’s incredible in-ring debut, it was the epic WrestleMania main event between The EST of WWE and The Boss for the SmackDown Women’s Championship that won the ESPY Award for Best WWE Moment.
As the first Black women to battle in a WrestleMania main event, they joined Roman Reigns, who won the same award in 2019 for his inspirational return after battling leukemia.
Congratulations to SmackDown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair and “The Boss” Sasha Banks on a history-making and award-winning performance!
As you might expect, both women went to social media to share their thoughts.
