Saturday night at WrestleMania 37 will be unlike any other edition of WWE’s signature event that preceded it. That’s primarily due to the return of paying fans in attendance at Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium — limited to 25,000 — for the first time in over a year.
The first of two nights of action will be headlined by two world title matches. Sasha Banks defends her SmackDown women’s championship against Bianca Belair in the final match, while Bobby Lashley puts the WWE championship on the line against two-time former champion Drew McIntyre in the opening one.
Five other matches are scheduled for Night 1 of WrestleMania 37, including the first steel cage match at a WrestleMania in 35 years, between Shane McMahon and Braun Strowman. Grammy award-winning musical artist Bad Bunny makes his pro wrestling debut in a tag-team match alongside Damian Priest, as they take on former WWE champion The Miz and John Morrison. The New Day puts its Raw tag-team titles against AJ Styles and the debuting Omos and four teams will battle for the right to challenge Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler for the women’s tag-team titles on Sunday night. And, in a showcase match flying under the radar, Cesaro and Seth Rollins go one-on-one.
Follow along throughout the night as Tim Fiorvanti breaks down the action, match by match.
