The main event of the first night of this year’s WrestleMania 37 was certainly a historic one, as Bianca Belair defeated Sasha Banks to become the SmackDown Women’s Champion. This marked the first ever singles match between two women to headline WrestleMania, as well as the first time two NXT callups had been in the show’s main event. Unfortunately, tit does no seem to have had the best result.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there were several reports of fans leaving during the Banks vs. Belair match.

The first night of WrestleMania was delayed about forty minutes due to weather issues, meaning that the show ended at about 11:50pm EST.
