WWE WrestleMania 37 results: Bianca Belair is the new SmackDown Women's Champion


Night 1 of WWE WrestleMania 37 closed out with the SmackDown Women's Championship match between champion Sasha Banks and challenger Bianca Belair.

The first big move of the match was a suicide dive through the ropes onto Belair. Belair caught her and pressed over her head while walking up the steps and tossing her in the ring. Minutes later, Belair yanked Banks into the steel post. Banks then tried a double knee but Belair moved and Banks crashed into the barricade.
