Sasha Banks and Alexa Bliss wrestled WWE’s first ever women’s match in the United Arab Emirates on Thursday and “The Boss” got incredibly emotional talking about it afterward.
Banks and Bliss both wrestled in full body suits and according to WWE there were chants of “this is hope” from both sexes in the crowd during the match.
An emotional Sasha Banks spoke to WWE.com when it was all over and while fighting back tears said, “The moment the announcer announced that this is gonna be a women’s match you could hear the crowd care. The moment I stood out there and I saw little girls, it just … it made everything worth it.”
Sasha continued, “Because this is what I feel like I was put on this earth to do. I wanna make a change in the world. I wanna empower women and I want to let them know that their dreams are endless and they can achieve anything.”
