Previously on WOW…
The Born Legend, Tessa Blanchard, continues to talk smack to Santana Garrett. She vows the title will be hers. But she also made sure no one else would take it from Santana before her when she went after Papa Keny G! It was all to distract Santana from her match with Jungle Grrrl, and it worked! Santana is furious and wants a match with Tessa, but WOW matchmaker David McLane insists Tessa earn it. Tessa beat the Beverly Hills Babe, Amber O’Neal, and demanded her shot right then and there. Santana came out, to give Tessa some payback! The third-generation Woman of Wrestling will give us an exclusive interview, but what will she have to say about Santana, the title, and her own actions?
Meanwhile, in the Lioness’s Den.
WOW talent and aspiring rap artist is in the studio working on her bars, Faith Lioness is the youngest member of the roster at just 19 years old. She’s been dancing and rapping since she was little as an outlet for her natural spastic energy. Faith raps on her own theme song, “We Just Flex”, and expresses her true self through it all. She knew she wasn’t going to be a college graduate, so she shifted her focus to wrestling and other martial arts. Faith got her black belt in Taekwondo at 17, and then shifted to pro-wrestling. Being the Lioness is about overcoming and attacking, but also about the hunger for more. Will the Lioness make all the other Women of Wrestling her prey?
The Beast VS Faith the Lioness!
The Lioness may want to be the Queen of the Jungle, but she’s got an Alpha Female to deal with right out of the gate! Will Faith be able to flex on The Beast? Or will her pride be broken in her AXS TV debut?
Fans are fired up after Faith’s live performance of her theme, but The Beast is just angry. The bell rings and Beast goes right at Faith! They tie up fast and hard and Faith gets a wristlock. Faith shifts to a headlock takeover but Beast powers out with a headscissor. Beast squeezes but Faith pops out. The two go again and Faith gets another headlock takeover!

Things speed up now and Beast SPEARS Faith! Fans are divided between cheers and jeers as Beast drags Faith up again. Beast throws haymakers then whips, and she scoops Faith in a powerslam! Cover, TWO! Faith survives but Beast kicks her around now. Beast has Faith in a corner and whips her corner to corner for a big clothesline! Beast grabs Faith for a belly2belly! But Beast doesn’t cover, she wants to make Faith suffer. Beast kicks Faith to a corner and grinds in her boot. The ref counts and Beast backs off to argue with him. Beast runs back in but Faith dodges! Things speed up, Faith leaps but Beast catches her! Another powerslam! Beast grins as she drags Faith back up. Faith resists and breaks free, enziguri! Beast stays standing, but gets a spinning roundhouse! Cover, ONE!!
Beast gets mad now, and drags Faith into a powerbomb lift. Beast Bomb! Cover, Beast wins!
Winner: The Beast, by pinfall
The Alpha Female is dominant as ever, but she didn’t expect this from The Lioness. Beast grabs a mic to tell David McLane that he keeps lining them up, and she keeps knocking them down. “Because I’m the biggest. I’m the baddest! I am THE BEAST!” The Beast roars, but how long will she have to wait for a shot at the WOW World Championship?
Introducing: Samantha Smart & The Disciplinarian.
Per her ring name, Kristen Davidson is ready to deal out some discipline to the unruly Women of Wrestling. Ms. Smart heard about a little girl who plays with fire, and that is not smart. Will these two teach young Ms. Keira Hogan a tough lesson? Or will they be the ones who learn not to play with Fire?
Fire VS The Disciplinarian w/ Samantha Smart!
Everyone knows that if you play with fire, you’re bound to get burned. But will Fire burn too hot for these strict school teachers? Or will she be put in detention for expressing herself?

Backstage interview with The Psycho Sisters.
Well, actually, just Razor. She doesn’t want the WOW interviewers messing up Fury’s preparations for her match tonight. The Vanguard of Violence tells the Women of Wrestling to prepare for the storm that’s coming. Razor vows that The Psycho Sisters will have gold soon enough, and “the first rung on the ladder is Chantilly Chella.” The Dancing Queen knows how to party, sure, but it won’t help her against the onslaught. Are you ready for the chaos?
Fury w/ Razor VS Chantilly Chella!
The Psycho Sisters plan to run roughshod over the Women of Wrestling roster, but will the Daughter of Darkness make good on her AXS TV debut? Or will the Dancing Queen be partying it up in LA after a successful return to a WOW ring?
The bell rings and Chella is all pumped up. Fury doesn’t take her serious as the two circle. Chella gives Fury a peace sign but Fury slaps it away.

WOW Media interviews Tessa Blanchard.
Can she explain herself about her attack of Keny G? Tessa makes sure we all understand something: she doesn’t care about Santana Garrett, she only cares about the WOW World Championship. The only reason Tessa is even bothering with Santana is because she is WOW World Champion. Maybe Tessa went too far going after Santana’s father, but if she didn’t, Jungle Grrrl would have definitely won and become the new champion. So yeah, Tessa’s the only reason Jungle Grrrl missed out on the title, because Tessa snapped. But Tessa’s glad she snapped and slapped Keny G around. Now she has Santana’s attention, she has David McLane’s attention, and the attention of the entire world!
Santana told Tessa to get in line. Tessa did, but she made her way right to the front of that line, and Santana can’t stop her. Tessa’s coming for the WOW World Championship, but will she take it?
Khloe Hurtz VS Abilene Maverick!
There’s a lot of drama between these two stars of WOW. First came a misunderstanding over limousines. Then came a ice cream based wardrobe malfunction. Then the Governor’s Daughter caught the All Natural with her man, Preston, and threw her into a pool! But Khloe only flirted with Preston to get on Abilene’s nerves. Abilene retaliated with pies, but she added further insult in a special “Ring Rats Match”. If Abilene won, Khloe’s usual horde of hunks would be replaced by handpicked “Texas” Ring Rats. And when Abilene won, she made sure Khloe’s men were some good ol’ boys from around town. Khloe would get her real Rats back, but she still wants revenge! Will she get satisfaction or more frustration?
Abilene and Khloe talk trash the moment they’re both in the ring, and the referee tries to keep the peace. Abilene pushes Khloe, so Khloe shoves Abilene! The ref quickly rings the bell as the two rush each other! Khloe gets around to a waistlock but Abilene resists the toss. Abilene elbows but Khloe keeps hold. Khloe slams Abilene then grinds her face into the mat! Khloe backs off long enough to put Abilene in a headscissors. She slams Abilene into the mat then covers, TWO! Abilene gets Khloe back with a facelock and brings Khloe to the mat. They roll around but Abilene holds on. She wrenches back and drags Khloe up for big knees. Khloe manages to roll Abilene to a cradle! TWO, but Khloe fireman’s carry. She does some squats, then hits the Samoan Drop! Khloe drops the splits leg drop and covers, TWO!
Khloe stalks Abilene to a corner but Abilene throws her into buckles! Abilene drags Khloe up by her hair then runs corner to corner to bump her off buckles. Abilene grinds Khloe into the ropes! The ref counts and Abilene lets up at 4 to bump Khloe again. Abilene rams her shoulder into Khloe, then runs corner to corner for a big knee. Khloe gasps as Abilene mule kicks and rolls Khloe, basement dropkick! Cover, TWO! Abilene keeps her cool while Khloe crawls. Abilene runs in corner to corner again, but into Khloe’s elbow! Khloe hops up and leaps for a big crossbody! Cover, TWO!! Khloe grows frustrated but she keeps on Abilene, only to end up in a victory roll! ONE, and Abilene hurries to bring Khloe back up. Abilene snapmares into a knee smash, then she throws body shots before throwing Khloe right down.
Khloe checks her teeth while Abilene stalks her. Abilene stomps the hand! Then the ankle! Then smashes the knee! Abilene is picking apart the All Natural, then puts her on the ropes for big knees. Abilene yanks her off the ropes and then places her under them, for a springboard knee drop! Khloe sputters onto the apron but Abilene drags her back in. Khloe jawbreakers back, then kicks low. Scissor Kick! Cover, TWO!! Abilene survives and Khloe can’t believe it. Khloe drags Abilene back up for a clubbing forearm. She hops up again but Abilene hits her back. Abilene snapmares Khloe off the top, then covers, TWO! Abilene comes close to a temper tantrum but she keeps her composure. She kicks Khloe around then snapmares her again. Abilene drags Khloe around and smashes the knee again. Abilene turns Khloe over for the Boston Crab!
Khloe endures and her Ring Rats try to help her reach the ropes. But Abilene drags Khloe away! Khloe keeps crawling and the Ring Rats help get that ropebreak! Abilene lets go while the Ring Rats show concern. Abilene drags Khloe away from them, and then whips Khloe to a corner. She runs corner to corner but into Khloe’s boot. Khloe hops up, has Abilene, tornado DDT! Cover, Khloe wins!
Winner: Khloe Hurtz, by pinfall
The All Natural gets the tiebreaker in this increasingly personal feud! Will Khloe keep ahead of the Governor’s Daughter in the race towards the WOW World Championship?
This was a good episode, but not as good as the previous ones. It was essentially the mid to upper-mid card getting some spotlight while building the title story through promos. Tessa Blanchard is great in the ring, but her interview promo could’ve been better. It started out alright, but it felt like somewhere in the middle her words got in the way of her message. Also, I was expecting an actual interview in a room, but it seems WOW went the paparazzi route instead. Perhaps that had a part to play in it, with Tessa having to say it all in one take, but it seemed like her lines concerning Jungle Grrrl weren’t quite right. And in connection to that, The Beast is still undefeated, despite young Faith giving her a good match. I’d expect Jungle Grrrl VS Tessa, Beast gets involved to bring about Jungle Grrrl VS Beast.
Fire supposedly had her parents in the crowd, but the cameras never going to them killed the kayfabe for that moment. Fire winning in front of her family should’ve added to the inspirational heartwarming feeling of her victory, but again, the kayfabe wasn’t maintained. I don’t know if WOW will ever create a micard title but Fire could be a contender for such a thing if this push continues. For that matter, the WOW World Tag Team Championships might want to return if The Psycho Sisters are going to be a tag team. Fury and Chella did well, and of course Razor being ringside helps Fury win. Razor wants gold, so she and Fury should insist on the WOW tag titles returning.
Then the main event of Khloe VS Abilene was not main event material to me, even with the story of their grudge being explained. The action just didn’t capture what that grudge was, so it was a rather weak ending to the night. Khloe wins and has the lead in their series, but I suspect these two are far from through with each other. Hopefully they improve in the ring, though, or this will be just too weak a story to be a main event match again.
My Score: 7.9/10

It’s the WrestleMania 37 Night Two Kickoff Show!
Join Kayla Braxton, Booker T, Jerry “The King” Lawler, JBL and Peter Rosenberg for yet another round of discussing, analyzing and predicting the action tonight!
Sonya Deville joins the panel again!
Does anyone really understand the implications of the Nigerian Drum Fight? It might just be Apollo Crews who understands. His power and his culture are going to define what happens tonight. Booker asks, “What do I look like? Chopped liver?” Well okay, he would know, yes. Booker says this goes back a long time ago, the Zulu nation and the Mandingo. This will play out in front of the world so the world needs to understand, and Booker says Apollo will make you understand. Sonya wishes she’d heard more about this. But Jerry wants to know why it’s drums. Booker asks, “What do you do to a drum?” You beat it. Exactly!
Rosenberg says the bottom line is, Apollo is in control. Big E may be on the kick of being in his hometown- JBL asks why Rosenberg’s hands are everywhere. But the point is, Apollo knows what this is about because this is his match. Booker says this will be a great night for everyone back home. JBL and Jerry can’t say anything without getting canceled, so they will agree with him.
Ashlyn Craft sings America the Beautiful!
We’ve waited patiently for this moment.
“Finally…!” The biggest event in LIVE entertainment is BACK! Back with the spectacle, the excitement and the pageantry! WrestleMania is #BackInBusiness! And tonight, WWE sets sail on the high seas with epic epicness bigger than the history of history! Wait, what? Did he just say all that? That’s what was written. Okay, mate, let’s get this cold open done right. We pick up where we left off just last year. Our heroes are obnoxiously heroic as they battle for the ultimate prize: immortality. But no more tall tales, let’s get real, as the kids say. Tonight, we witness the global event that spans decades, created unforgettable moments, and has the memories we will remember forever.
But let us tip our caps to you, the fans, who made this possible. You over there, and them up there, and even those at home who “can’t not watch.” We raise the sails as fate still awaits. The course was corrected, the wind cannot be stopped, and the quest continues! Now how’s that? Impressive. But where’s the big finish? That’s cold open 101. Good point. Pyro montage! “Welcome back… to WrestleMania!”
The WrestleMania cohosts are back!
Titus O’Neil and Hulk Hogan return to kick off Night Two of WrestleMania 37, but this time they’re Captain Titus and the Hollywood Privateer! “I dunno about you, Hulk, but I think we look damn good tonight.” Well, T-man, it’s a little hot, too. But either way, AHOY MATIES! Yo ho, brothers, and welcome to Mania Sunday! Last night was incredible, but tonight will be no different! Seven matches, and FIVE are for gold! That means they need to batten down the hatches. No room for scurvy dogs or scallywags! Whoa, don’t be calling the people that. Hogan’s not gonna walk the plank, is he? No, Titus will take care of that. The first match is a tale of terror, dark than the depths of Davey Jones’ Locker! YARRGH!
Randy Orton VS The Fiend w/ Alexa Bliss!
The Viper thought he’d finished this at TLC, but some evil never dies. And now, this horror movie in real-life opens the Showcase of the Immortals! Lil’ Miss Twisted Bliss is still by his side, but will Orton finally #LetHimIn?

Drew McIntyre vs Bobby Lashley
Both men try to get a strength advantage with a Collar & Elbow tie up before breaking it and going to holds now and still getting even ground. Now both men get some fighting in the corner going, delivering punches and strikes until they go to the outside where Lashley takes control and ragdolls McIntyre into the barricades before tossing Drew back in. Lashley keeps the onslaught on Drew and gets a quick pin attempt for a one and continues to get the beat down on the former champ. Lashley gets a lot of steam going as he goes to do another shoulder tackle into the corner, only to miss and Drew targets the arm of Bobby. Momentum shifting into Drew’s favor as Drew getting things going for him, suplexes and strikes galore as he goes for the Future Shock DDT. Lashley puts Drew into the corner to get separation but Drew catches the strike attempt and catches lashley into Northern Lights Suplex for a nearfall.
Bobby gets a reversal into a slam, a near fall and both men get some signature moves in. Drew hits the Glasgow Kiss and Bobby hits back with a one handed Spinebuster. After another near fall, Drew gets caught in a Hurt Lock but gets out of it quickly as they both go to the corner. Drew getting the swing this time and lands a good ol’ Alabama Slamma for a near fall of his own before trying to set up a sky-high superplex to the champion. Lashley fights off the attempt as Drew gets a Kimora Lock in to weaken the arm, Lashley fights him off again, catching Drew into a Tree of Woe but Drew sits up to launch Bobby in a Belly- To Belly. Lashley hits another one armed Spinebuster until Drew kips up and tells him to bring it, delivering a trifecta of Future Shock DDTs for a two count.
Drew in shock but goes to the corner, doing the countdown to the Claymore but Lashley rolls out of the ring. Drew tapping into a little bit of Undertaker and does a Tope Con Hilo to take MVP and Bobby out and takes Lashley back to the ring, setting up for something in from the top. Lashley catches the challenger and goes to apply another Hurt Lock but Drew runs out of the way to stun Lashley. As Lashley goes to do another Spinebuster, Drew rolls it into a Kimura Lock, perfectly on before Lashley inches slowly to the ropes to kick out. Lashley now, getting his aggression out, taking it to McIntyre in the corner until Drew gets separation, going for another Claymore until MVP distracts the former champion and misses the Claymore for Lashley to get the Hurt Lock in. Drew looked impressive to break out but Lashley didn’t break when Drew pushed off the corner and passes out from the pressure.
Tag Team Turmoil
Naomi & Lana vs Carmella & Billie Kay to start off the gauntlet style matchup as Naomi and Lana take the early advantage against Carmella. Carmella gets a tag onto Billie Kay but the advantage is still Lana and Naomi. When all four get in for chaos, Billie Kay goes for a roll up and beat Naomi and Lana for the next team to come out…
Riott Squad come out and take it to Billie early on but Carmella gets a tag and starts a beat down against Liv Morgan. Ruby breaks up the pin attempt but as Billie goes for the same pin attempt, the ref catches it and the Riott Squad get a tag and the advantage as Billie Kay gets brutalized, pinned and Carmella starts to beat up Liv before the next team come in…
Dana and Mandy come out and Ruby fights the two alone from the beat down as the fresher team gets things going and Liv barely gets a break of a pin attempt as Mandy and Dana work Ruby’s neck now. As Mandy cuts the ring off from Ruby, Ruby starts to fight out of the corner and gets Liv into the match now as they start the beat down of Mandy Rose. As the Riott Squad lose the advantage, Rose and Brooke get some damage with a superplex and Swanton combination but Liv gets a reversal on Dana and get the pinfall.
Natalya and Tamina are the last two to get in the match up and start the powerhouse assault on the Riott Squad. The two getting the best of the most tenured tag team in the whole match up as Liv tries to break out of their grasp. Ruby gets the tag and hit the codebreaker/senton combination to Tamina only for a two though and Tamina gets the advantage back, gets the tag to Natalya and they hit a Hart Attack. Natalya looks to get the Sharpshooter but changes her mind and tags Tamina in for the Superfly Splash to get the Day Two Tag Team Championship opportunity.
Seth Rollins vs Cesaro-
Cesaro goes quick into the offense with an Uppercut and goes for the Swing early but Seth rushes out and panics with Cesaro getting more and more of a beat down. Cesaro getting a good amount of offense going as Seth starts to target Cesaro’s arm and starts to pick things up after with his Superplex/Falcon Arrow combo after getting distance. Seth getting cocky again as he tries to take it to Cesaro but the Swiss Cyborg gets his strikes in again, taking down Seth with Uppercuts and goes for the swing again constantly, first time gets countered into a cradle, second time Seth gets to the ropes but the third time is the charm for nine rotations of the Swing and Sharpshooter. Seth breaks out of the hold and moves out of another Uppercut attempt from the corner, hurting Cesaro’s arm again as Rollins gets his high offense in, knees, Slingblades and a 360 Splash but nothing keeps Cesaro down. Seth tries for a ripcord knee but Cesaro changes it into a Neutralizer and a two count. Rollins crawls to the ropes and gets his legs grabbed again for yet ANOTHER Swing but flips out of it, into a Pedigree but fails to get the victory again.
Rollins gets his speech in about being God as he hits Cesaro in time to set up the Curb Stomp. Rollins gets caught into a Uppercut (second best Stomp counter) and takes Rollins spinning, first with a no handed Airplane Spin, Giant Swing and finishes it with a Neutralizer.
(Now get my Red and Pewter out of my sight on Rollins. They are winners unlike you tonight, Seth.)
New Day vs AJ Styles and Omos-
We… are getting Omos to start off against Kofi…? Oh no. New Day goaded AJ to start.
Kofi and AJ using their speed to go off and do some of their big moves or attempt them as AJ thinks he gets an advantage but Kofi gets it, with a slam and near fall, teasing AJ after a beat down as the champs get frequent tags, even getting a Unicorn Stampede off before Xavier holds AJ down for a bit. They keep teasing Omos to tag in but to no avail, New Day beating AJ down more. Kofi goes to tease AJ to get to tag AJ but tags Woods in to cut him off from tagging Omos. After a flurry from AJ to separate from Woods, Kofi tags himself in and fights AJ from tagging the big man in until AJ separates himself from the two and realizes, “I can tag the big man…? I CAN TAG THE BIG MAN!”
Omos comes in and Xavier can’t knock Omos down as Kofi tries to tag in and chop down the big man as The New Day… well to quote the remake of The Longest Yard… they shit themselves. Omos dismantles and smashes The New Day in the ring. Omos basically is breaking them apart as AJ flings over Omos for a Phenomenal Forearm and Omos two handed Chokeslams Kofi down for the win… Jesus Christ. They made him look like a billion dollars in the ring tonight.
Braun Strowman vs Shane McMahon-
As Braun comes in second, Elias and Ryker goes and beats Strowman down with chairs before the bell and Shane tells them to bring Braun in for it to start.
Shane grabs one of the chairs and beats Braun down with the chair over and over, going for a quick win and escaping but Braun, limping, stops Shane and taking more strikes from Shane for a good amount, limping and weakened as Shane breaks sheet metal from the top of the cage to continue the beat down and near fall. Braun now taking the fight to Shane as he stops Shane from escaping and tossing Shane into the cage walls over and over as Shane gets Braun’s hands now before getting squashed between the cage walls. Braun gets the full advantage in the match until his legs give out from earlier and Shane slides out, doing a swinging DDT and setting Braun up to go from Florida all the way to Cali with the Coast to Coast for a second near fall. Ryker and Elias climb the outside to get Shane out but Strowman runs into the cage to loosen all three of them. More offense goes on before Shane gets away and climbs out almost until he pisses off Braun and… gets caught, pulling the cage apart and dragging Shane back in. Braun getting a bright idea as he props Shane up on the cage, going up himself before Braun launches Shane off the cage and climbs back in, stumbling and standing up for himself and everyone who was bullied that’s watching before hitting a Running Powerslam for the win.
We get a small break for the cage to be taken down to honor the inductees to the 2020 Hall of Fame, Shatner, Liger, JBL, The Bella Twins, The British Bulldog, Titus O’Neal with the Warrior Award and the New World Order, Waltman, Hall, Nash and Hogan.
Bad Bunny & Damien Priest vs Miz & John Morrison-
Priest and Miz start it off and Miz goes to the corner and goads Bunny to come in and tags in as they walk around a little bit and Miz being an ass saying he can get the first shot as Bad Bunny pops Miz down. Bunny actually goes for a waist lock as Miz swings wild, Bunny ducks and gets another jab in before Miz gets pissed off and both of them trade blows in the corner of the ring before Miz gets the advantage, taking Bad Bunny into one corner and gets cocky a little before getting countered and Bunny flings Miz down with an arm drag. Miz rolls out and gets caught INTO A LA MAGISTAL AND A NEAR FALL! Miz had to get cheap after a a short pep talk with Morrison as Bad Bunny showing he’s better than Enzo with the rope spot. Bunny gets the advantage again as he slides under the ropes and does a well done Tilt-A-Whirl Head Scissor on Miz before tagging Morrison and getting some control in the match for M&M.
Miz gets back in and taunts Damien Priest by putting Bad Bunny in a headlock, inches away from Priest until Bunny gets some fight in him, dropping Morrison from the apron and almost getting to Priest, countering Miz’s stop with a Sunset Flip but getting beaten down after the pin attempt. Miz and Morrison take it to Bunny on the outside a bit. Morrison gets tagged in and taunts Booker T with a Spinarooni (A perfect one at that) as the tag to Miz gets in and Priest tries to get the crowd amped up. Miz cheap shots Priest and takes the ref’s attention away as M&M just keep embarrassing Bad Bunny with kicks in the corner. Miz gets cocky again and goes for his signature clothesline in the corner but Bunny stops him, dropping Morrison’s attack from the apron and hits a Tornado DDT onto Miz as he finally tags Damien Priest.
Damien goes to both men with his speed and strength, suplexing Miz into Morrison and hitting a chokeslam into a nearfall as all four men now get in the ring. Stereo Falcon Arrows, Damien Priest getting his step up Tope Con Hilo and Bunny with a crossbody. Priest gets Miz into the ring and Miz counters it into a Skull Crushing Finale into a pinfall. Bad Bunny goes to break it up and almost gets a tag in before Morrison pulls Bunny down. Bad Bunny having none of it from Morrison, hits a God Damn Destroyer as Priest props Miz up, gets the tag and lands a crossbody on the Miz for the win.
(Okay… Bad Bunny actually impressed me. Showed he cared. I give him props for that. I really do.)
Bianca Belair vs Sasha Banks-
Both women size each other up for Collar & Elbows and Sasha shoves Bianca down, getting the trash talk started before Bianca kips up and shows a good amount of her –est’s, being Strong, Quick, Fast against Sasha as Sasha gets annoyed and gets caught by Bianca, rolling her out of the ring as Bianca goes to the outside. After some fighting on the apron, Sasha goes for a good suicide dive attempt but Bianca catches her and carries her to the ring as the match gets back to the ring. Bianca gets her usually offense going but Sasha actually grabs the hair of Bianca during the cartwheel and takes control this time around, getting her edge back and weakening the challenger. Sasha takes her to the corner and goes for the double knee attempt from the apron before Bianca catches her and drops her on her shoulder as they both go to the outside. Bianca’s hair gets caught by Sasha and Bianca takes control on the outside before the ref gets to 8 and both come back in. Bianca showed off her strength this time after a cradle attempt and does an impressive amount of time on a stalling suplex. Sasha keeps using Bianca’s hair to try to stop her after the Suplex but Bianca uses her hair as a ripcord effect into a clothesline. Sasha gets beat down from a Standing Shooting Star and getting propped into the corner as Belair goes for a 450 attempt from the top rope and Sasha counters, getting the momentum change momentarily.
Bianca catches some of Sasha’s high speed offense and does powerbomb pinfalls as Sasha kicks out of the first two, reversing the third with an X-Factor and taking control back with a Tornado DDt for another near fall. Banks now goes to the top for a Frog Splash. Sasha gets her anger and ruthlessness to wrap Bianca’s hair around her opponent into a Bank Statement and somehow, Bianca powers through and gets to the ropes before Sasha starts stopping on Bianca’s face after the break. Banks keeps going with the trash talking but Bianca shoves her into the corner post with some Shoulder Tackles and sets her up for a Superplex. Sasha fights her off and attempts a cartwheel kick before Sasha grabs the feet into a Tree of Woe position to land a Meteora. Sasha misses the first one, goes to a knee strike from the Tree as Bianca sits up so Sasha lands knees first into the turnbuckle and eats a 450 Splash for a near fall. Sasha tries to get control again after but gets whipped in the midsection with Bianca’s hair and after a fight to swing around, Bianca grabs Sasha up and lands the Kiss Of Death to win her first Women’s Championship in WWE.
Overall Score: 8/10
Well not too bad for the first fan attended event for WWE… barring NXT of course. Bad Bunny showed he can actually care about wrestling, wasn’t expecting a Canadian Destroyer… or I guess Puerto Rican Destroyer. Cesaro gets his moment, Bianca gets her moment. AJ Styles is now a Grand Slam Champion and every match except for the Tag Team Turmoil thing was pretty solid. I actually can’t wait for night two of Mania. Did it match Stand and Deliver Night One? No. That is still the best match of the week so far but they brought a good amount of fire this night and held a candle to Night Two all things considered. Well we have one more day for me to do Mania Week writing so let’s see if Night two can live up to Night One.
Just… people stop wearing my Bucs colors and lose in the process. Seriously. Disappointed me tonight Seth and New Day.
