Sasha Banks (Smackdown Ladies’s Champion) vs. Bianca Belair
Fels: Simply plug it into my veins! If Rollins-Cesaro isn’t the height of the night time, this will likely be. Sasha hasn’t had a giant singles match at Mania earlier than, so you recognize she’s going to be in sixth or seventh gear for this. Bianca has “face of the corporate” written throughout her, and no matter deficiency she may need within the ring merely because of a scarcity of expertise — athletically there’s nothing she will’t do — Sasha will make up for.
I wish to say that is Banks’s large second, FINALLY, however they ran the NXT-star-comes-up-and-falls-just-short angle final 12 months with Rhea Ripley and Charlotte. A Sasha win may arrange a SummerSlam blowout with a returning Becky Lynch, and Bianca received’t be harm by a courageous defeat. Or an enraged Sasha on the chase might be one other scrumptious angle for the summer time. Perhaps that is when Sasha’s crossover attraction, that began with The Mandalorian, explodes. Both manner, all of us win.
Fonseca: Objectively, this needs to be the principle occasion of Evening 1 and will wind up being the present stealer of the general WrestleMania 37 two-day occasion. A feud initially constructed on admiration, respect, a championship alternative, and making historical past morphed into one thing else as soon as Sasha Banks (unsurprisingly) heel turned — no less than quickly — including one other jolt of anticipation into this match. Banks and Belair are two of the most effective wrestlers on the planet proper now, so entering into both course has a pathway to what might be a longstanding feud that carries by a piece of 2021.
If Belair wins, which ought to most likely be the odds-on favourite consequence, you have got a brand new star to construct the ladies’s division round on Smackdown, with the apparent want for revenge from Banks wanted to drive this right into a authentic rivalry we see play out for a number of pay per views, most likely culminating in SummerSlam if performed appropriately. If Banks wins, Belair may proceed her pursuit and win the title afterward. Banks may settle into the heel function she’s extraordinarily comfy in as soon as extra. As Sam mentioned, we’re good both manner. This has five-star basic potential in each WrestleMania lore and the doable prolonged rivalry to observe.
