In a press release issued by ESPN yesterday it was revealed that Sasha Banks and Smackdown Women’s champion Bianca Belair will be appearing at the 2021 ESPYS, joining other star-student athletes and stars to celebrate the best moments from the year in sports.
Banks and Belair were finalists for the WWE Moment of the Year for their match at WrestleMania, becoming the first African American females to headline a WrestleMania. Their appearance likely means that they won the poll as voted by fans. The other three finalists were Bianca’s Royal Rumble win, Edge’s Royal Rumble win, and Bad Bunny’s match at WrestleMania.
The ESPYS will be broadcast live on ABC this Saturday, July 10, at 8PM ET from The Rooftop at Pier 17 at the Seaport in New York City.
