Black Girl Magic was on full display at WrestleMania 2022 and throughout several wrestling tournaments where several Black women made history, broke barriers –– and have done so in style.

Most recently, Bianca Belair, Naomi and Sasha Banks won titles at WrestleMania 38 over the weekend in Arlington, Texas, while previous AEW and IMPACT competitions named Black women ––Jade Cargill and Tasha Steelz –– as champions in their respective divisions.

By the end of the WWE's annual competition on Sunday (April 3), the world of wrestling saw a Black woman named champion of every major televised wrestling promotion.

From HBCU marching band entrances, to tag team titles, here's what went down at the historic WWE WrestleMania 38 and beyond.

Professional wrestler and the EST of the WWE Bianca Belair secured her second Raw Women's Championship in a row on the first day of the competition, defeating Becky Lynch in a stunning match.

To make her entrance into the ring, Bianca was assisted by Texas State University's marching band, who is known as the Ocean of Soul.

Sasha Banks and Naomi won the Women's Tag-Team Title, becoming the first team of Black women to do so. Banks won this event previously with a different partner, but earned the historic title alongside the Florida native.

The duo made their way to the main stage in a decked out, lime green super car. Check it out below.

Late last year, Jade Cargill of AEW Wrestling secured the TBS Championship Title after making her debut in the sport in 2020. Last month, Tasha Steelz won, becoming the IMPACT Knockouts World Champion.
