• John Cena Sr. Says Sasha Banks & Bianca Belair Were Instructed To Cry At WrestleMania 37
As seen in the main event of Night 1 of WrestleMania 37, Bianca Belair defeated Sasha Banks to win the SmackDown Women’s Championship.
This was the first-time ever that two black women and a singles women’s match main evented WrestleMania.
This led to Bianca getting emotional in the ring before the match began.
During an interview with Boston Wrestling MWF, John Cena Sr. (father of 16 time WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena) said that Sasha & Bianca were told to cry and it didn’t help their match.
Here’s what he said:
“I’m going right back to where the fault belongs: W-R-I-T-E-R-S. Who wrote that session for those young ladies to come in and start crying? Somebody had to write it. No, I don’t believe that [that the crying was real]. Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes [Banks and Belair were instructed to cry].
I thought there were a few highlights in that match, but I will say this. As a guy, and you know I’m an advocate of women’s professional wrestling, I backed them before they even started this [Women’s Evolution]. I think it lacked a lot of luster and I don’t think the opening [crying] helped put any more polish on the show.”
