WWE WrestleMania 37 kicked off on Saturday as the night 1 card welcomed back the biggest event in sports entertainment, and WWE returns right back to Raymond James Stadium in Tampa on Sunday for Night 2 of the two-night extravaganza. On the heels of a memorable conclusion to the first evening of action, which saw Bianca Belair win the SmackDown women’s championship in a fantastic match with Sasha Banks, the superstars of Night 2 will have to do some heavy lifting if they want to exceed Saturday’s action.
Night 2 features a strong card, capped off by universal champion Roman Reigns defending his title against Daniel Bryan and 2021 Royal Rumble winner Edge. Reigns has managed to use every trick in the book to hold off challengers since winning the championship in August 2020, but now is backed into a corner as he’ll have to face down two of the greatest superstars in WWE history.
The main event sits atop a card featuring five championship contests across seven scheduled matches, giving plenty of opportunities for other men and women to follow in Belair’s footsteps and create their own WrestleMania moments.

2021 WWE WrestleMania 37 Night 2 card
After more than one year, WWE welcomed live fans back with Night 1 of WrestleMania 37 at Raymond James Stadium on Saturday night. Getting the show off the ground wasn’t easy, however, as thunderstorms rolled through Tampa and caused a weather delay minutes after the show kicked off. After nearly an hour of waiting, the action finally got underway and a huge night followed.
In the main event, Bianca Belair challenged Sasha Banks for the SmackDown women’s championship. From the moment Belair won the 2021 Royal Rumble, fans had been anticipating a WrestleMania match between the two women. While lofty expectations can lead to major disappointments, Banks and Belair exceeded even the wildest expectations for the bout, delivering a truly great match on the biggest stage of them all.
Also during Night 1, Bad Bunny finally stepped into the ring as an active competitor, teaming with Damian Priest against The Miz and John Morrison. Bunny stunned the WWE Universe with a performance that was more than could reasonably be expected from a “celebrity wrestling match,” creating his own WrestleMania moment.

WWE Championship — Bobby Lashley (c) vs. Drew McIntyre: Lashley and McIntyre locked up and pushed each other around the ring in a collar-and-elbow to start the match. Lashley dropped McIntyre with a shoulder tackle, but McIntyre came back with a belly-to-belly suplex moments later before a brawl broke out with both men driving in punches and forearms. The action spilled outside, where Lashley whipped McIntyre into the ringside barricade. McIntyre finally cut off Lashley’s run by moving out of the corner and sending Lashley shoulder-first into the ring post. McIntyre tried to focus his offense on Lashley’s shoulder but the champion was eventually able to regain the upper hand. McIntyre hit a clothesline, another belly-to-belly suplex and a neckbreaker. The challenger then went back to the arm of Lashley.
Lashley was able to hit a dominator to cut off McIntyre’s offensive flurry and scored one of the first near-falls of the match. Lashley also tried to lock in the Hurt Lock, but McIntyre was able to fight it off. As the fight went to the top rope, Lashley fended off a superplex attempt and then found himself launched from the top rope anyway as McIntyre popped up with a big throw. Shortly after, McIntyre hit the Future Shock DDT three times before going for a pin, but Lashley was able to kick out at two. McIntyre set up for the Claymore, but Lashley was able to roll out of the ring to avoid — though he wasn’t so lucky seconds later as McIntyre dove over the top rope. Lashley again tried to lock in a Hurt Lock, but McIntyre managed to force Lashley into the turnbuckle before locking in a kimura on Lashley’s injured arm. Lashley ducked under a Claymore after a distraction by MVP from the outside, allowing Lashley to finally lock in the Hurt Lock. McIntyre fired up and tried to kick off the turnbuckle and roll, but Lashley held on to the hold and continued to apply pressure until McIntyre went out to allow Lashley to retain. A solid match based on physicality and impressive in the two men having to wait through the delay when they were seconds from walking to the ring at the start of the show. This won’t be the best match of the weekend, but was still good stuff. Bobby Lashley def. Drew McIntyre via submission to retain the title. Grade: B
UPDATE: Night 1 of WrestleMania 37 is in the books. It was a really excellent start that bodes well for Night 2 on Sunday. The return of live fans was a real treat and we should be sure to savor every moment of Night 2 before WWE returns to its closed Thunderdome set. Below you will find our live analysis of the show, as it unfolded.
WrestleMania will look a lot more normal this year than it did last year.
The “Showcase of the Immortals” will be the first WWE show in 13 months to have fans in the stands. Ever since the pandemic forced WWE to move last year’s show from Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium to an empty WWE Performance Center, the company has been putting on shows without live crowds. That changes this weekend, though, when 25,000 fans will be allowed in Raymond James Stadium for both nights of WrestleMania 37.
The one thing that will carry over from last year’s bizarre, empty-arena WrestleMania is the two-night format. In the years before WrestleMania 36, WWE’s biggest show of the year had ballooned into a six- or seven-hour affair, exhausting fans. Splitting the bloated card up over two nights was a welcome change, and appears to be WWE’s strategy moving forward.
The show will be the first big test for WWE’s new streaming home, Peacock. American viewers no longer have access to the old WWE Network app and instead must watch on Peacock, NBCUniversal’s streaming service. The switch to Peacock was made ahead of Fastlane last month and viewers have not reported any major issues with watching live events such as NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver, although some fans are peeved that they no longer have the ability to pause and rewind live broadcasts.
