Wiki.

WrestleMania 37 was the 37th annual WrestleMania professional wrestling pay-per-view and WWE Network event produced by WWE for their Raw and SmackDown brand divisions. It took place as a two-night event on April 10 and 11, 2021 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. Following the merger of the WWE Network with Peacock in the United States, WrestleMania 37 was the first major WWE event for which U.S. subscribers could only stream the event via Peacock's WWE Network channel.The event was originally scheduled to take place on March 28, 2021, at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California; however, the COVID-19 pandemic in California made it unlikely that the event could be held there with in-person spectators. Florida, however, lifted those restrictions, and WWE in turn pushed the date of the event back and moved it to Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, which was the originally planned venue for WrestleMania 36 before the pandemic forced it to be relocated and held behind closed doors at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. As a result, it marked the first time WWE had ticketed fans in attendance for an event during the COVID-19 pandemic, though to a limited capacity; the last WWE event to have ticketed fans was NXT on March 11, 2020, just before pandemic-related restrictions took effect. With a limited capacity, both nights of the event sold out of all available tickets, with WWE reporting that each night had an attendance of 25,675 spectators, totaling 51,350 for both nights combined.The card comprised 14 matches that were evenly divided between the two nights. In the main event for Night 1, Bianca Belair defeated Sasha Banks to win the SmackDown Women's Championship. This was the first time two African Americans headlined WrestleMania, as well as the second time women headlined the event after WrestleMania 35. Other prominent matches saw Bad Bunny and Damian Priest defeat The Miz and John Morrison, Braun Strowman defeated Shane McMahon in a Steel Cage match, A.J. Styles and Omos defeated The New Day (Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods) to win the Raw Tag Team Championship, which was Omos' in-ring debut and also made Styles WWE's 32nd Triple Crown Champion and 22nd Grand Slam Champion, and in the opening bout, Bobby Lashley defeated Drew McIntyre by technical submission to retain the WWE Championship. In the main event for Night 2, Roman Reigns defeated Daniel Bryan and Edge in a triple threat match to retain the Universal Championship. In other prominent matches, Apollo Crews defeated Big E in a Nigerian Drum Fight to win the Intercontinental Championship, Sheamus defeated Riddle to win the United States Championship, Rhea Ripley defeated Asuka to win the Raw Women's Championship, and in the opening bout, Randy Orton defeated The Fiend.This was the first WrestleMania since 2003 to not feature John Cena in any capacity and the first since 2012 not to feature Brock Lesnar. This was also the first WrestleMania since 1988 to not feature at least one of the following: Shawn Michaels, Triple H, and The Undertaker. The event was also the first WrestleMania since 2010 to have an on-screen appearance by WWE Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Vince McMahon, who opened the show to welcome fans to the event and welcome them back to a WWE event for the first time in over a year.
