• Women Will Main Event WrestleMania Again Next Month
The two top matches of Night 1 of WrestleMania 37 are the WWE Championship match between Bobby Lashley & Drew McIntyre and the SmackDown Women’s Championship match between Sasha Banks & Bianca Belair.
Many people believed that the WWE Championship match will be the main event of Night 1, but that’s not the case.
In an interview for WWE Germany, SmackDown Women’s Champion Sasha Banks confirmed that her match with Women’s Royal Rumble 2021 winner Bianca Belair will main event Night 1 of WrestleMania 37.
With that being said, it is possible that the WWE Championship match between Lashley and McIntyre now kicks off Night 1, as WrestleVotes reported yesterday that WWE officials are talking about the Kickoff Show on Night 1 to feature no matches, as they want the first entrance in front of fans on the main show as it will be a big deal.
“Hearing something interesting – WWE may not feature a match on the WrestleMania kickoff show for night 1, as the 1st entrance back in front of fans is being looked at as a HUGE deal. Not decided at all, but definitely a conversation happening within creative.”
McIntyre winning the WWE Championship in the first match in front of actual fans in attendance in over a year will be the perfect way to kick off WrestleMania 37, given the fact that the biggest moment of McIntyre’s career happened in front of 0 fans last year (when he defeated Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship in the main event of Night 2 of WrestleMania 36).
Sasha Banks vs. Bianca Belair will be the second women’s main event in WrestleMania history, with the first one being Ronda Rousey vs. Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania 35.
