Dressed in bodysuits Sasha Banks, Alexa Bliss become first women to wrestle in Abu Dhabi


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.

Also Alison was there and she did not how to deal.

After the match backstage, Sasha Banks was overcome with emotions and cut a great promo on what the moment meant to her.

Progress is pretty cool everyone. Props to Sasha Banks and Alexa Bliss on this accomplishment.
