The 2021 ESPY Awards took place on Saturday, and WWE was on hand to help celebrate the festivities.
During an early look at the red carpet entrances, WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair arrived, wearing a stunning dress that the superstar said she had created herself on social media later in the night. Sasha Banks was also on hand, showing up in the same red carpet sequence that the ESPYs shared on social media.

Later in the night, the duo also took home a big award, as both Belair and Banks won the ESPY for Best WWE Moment for their epic battle for the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 37. In a category that also featured the likes of Edge’s Royal Rumble Match, Bad Bunny’s incredible in-ring debut, and even Belair’s Royal Rumble victory, it was the iconic headline bout between Belair and Banks that took home the award.
As the first Black women to battle in a WrestleMania main event, they also joined Roman Reigns, who won the same award in 2019 for his inspirational return to the ring after battling leukemia.
