WWE Royal Rumble winner Bianca Belair has officially chosen which champion she will face at WrestleMania in April.
To the surprise of nobody, that opponent will be Sasha Banks and she will challenge for the SmackDown Women’s Championship.
What is a little more surprising is that it looks like she may be facing a Sasha Banks who goes into the match as a heel.
Her choice was officially made on SmackDown when she gave the now customary sign point amidst fireworks but before that, she encountered Reginald the sommelier who once again praised Banks to high heaven (Carmella who?). This brought Banks to the ring who reminded him not to talk for her but in the process displayed a little more of the obvious chemistry between the two that seems to be leading to the pairing becoming a regular fixture.
After the champion had sent Reginald packing, she turned to her WrestleMania challenger and dressed her down in such an arrogant way that any thoughts of this being a respect based contest have seemingly gone out of the window.
That said, there is still six weeks until ‘Mania taking place on 10th and 11th April so this feud could develop in a number of different ways.
