Usually the WWE is not shy about when they have any kind of history making news. Today (Dec. 7) Sasha Banks and Alexa Bliss made promotional history and it kind of flew under the radar.
Last year when the WWE toured Abu Dhabi and the rest of the Middle East, women wrestlers were not allowed to compete in the ring. Today that all changed when Bliss and Banks wrestled in front of the Abu Dhabi house show crowd.
Dressed in full bodysuits, by all accounts Banks and Bliss put on a blistering performance.
