It will officially be Sasha Banks vs. Bianca Belair at WrestleMania 37.

On tonight's episode of SmackDown, Belair declared that she'll be challenging for Banks' SmackDown Women's Championship at WrestleMania 37. Belair got the title shot by winning last month's women's Royal Rumble match.

Before announcing her WrestleMania decision tonight, Belair was interrupted by Carmella's sommelier Reginald. Reginald told Belair that she would leave WrestleMania as a loser if she chose to face Banks at WrestleMania. Banks then came to the ring and told Reginald not to speak for her.

Banks said that if Belair wants to make history and be the topic of conversation, she'll face Banks at WrestleMania. Banks said Belair might call herself the EST of WWE, but Banks is the best. Banks said that makes Belair second best.'

Belair responded by saying she'll make Banks eat her words on the grandest stage of them all. Belair said she'll prove she's the best by taking Banks' title at WrestleMania 37. Belair told Banks that it's on and then pointed to the WrestleMania sign. 

Belair entered this year's women's Royal Rumble at number three and was in the match for nearly 57 minutes. She last eliminated Rhea Ripley to get the win.

Banks & Belair unsuccessfully challenged for Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler's Women's Tag Team titles at Elimination Chamber this past Sunday. Reginald, who is infatuated with Banks in storyline, tried to give Banks a bottle of champagne to use as a weapon during the match. Banks refused to use the champagne bottle but was distracted, which led to Jax pinning Banks.

WrestleMania 37 is a two-night event that's taking place at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida on Saturday, April 10 and Sunday, April 11. Men's Royal Rumble winner Edge challenging for Roman Reigns' Universal Championship has also been confirmed for the show.
