Bianca Belair might have given WWE fans outside North America a reason to be hopeful for WrestleMania.
It has been talked about for decades but the idea of holding WrestleMania outside of North America came into sharp focus when John Cena appeared at Money In The Bank in London, England, and whipped the crowd into a frenzy by teasing that WWE will one day bring their showpiece event to the city.
London is of course the host city of AEW All In with that event now surpassing WrestleMania 3 in terms of ticket sales for the show in Wembley Stadium.
Speaking to Denise Salcedo former WWE Women’s Champion Bianca Belair discussed the possibility of WrestleMania going international and thinks it’s inevitable:
“Now people are like, ‘Hey, are we gonna do a WrestleMania somewhere international?’ I think it’s only a matter of time.
“We don’t get to go there a lot so they don’t get to see us a lot. The international crowds are some of the best crowds ever, I mean they’re so excited to see us, they’re invested, they’re loud, and it’s great because it shows you how global WWE is. We can go to other countries and people know exactly who they are and they want us there.”
A mixed night for Bianca Belair at SummerSlam
Bianca Belair went into SummerSlam looking to avenge her loss to Asuka at Night of Champions but had to share her title shot with Charlotte Flair. In the end, Belair was able to claim the title when she rolled up Asuka after the champion had spat poison mist in the face of Flair.
There was no time to celebrate for The EST of WWE, however, as IYO SKY and Bayley made their presence felt with SKY cashing in her Money In The Bank briefcase to win the WWE Women’s Title for the first time in her career.
Currently not on SmackDown, it is unclear when Belair will be back on TV.
