The Texas Southern University marching band performed ahead of Bianca Belair’s entrance, adding a big-match feel. Becky Lynch hit the Manhandle Slam seconds into the match, calling back to her ultra-quick win at SummerSlam.
Bianca Belair was able to kick out this time, however. The early sprint saw a lot of fast pin attempts before the match spilled to ringside and Lynch sent Belair into the ring steps. Lynch used this momentum to hit several big moves, including a guillotine legdrop as Belair was draped over the top rope.
Belair came back after the early run for Lynch, hitting the double chicken wing slam and the rebound moonsault for a near fall. Belair placed Lynch on her shoulders in a fireman’s carry and took her to the second rope before dropping her on the top rope.
That set up another near fall for Belair after hitting a second-rope 450 splash. Lynch hit her own big move, coming off the turnbuckle with a flipping kick to the face. Lynch countered the K.O.D. by grabbing the top rope and shortly after hit Belair with a Manhandle Slam on the ring steps at ringside.
That failed to get Becky Lynch the win and she began to lose her composure. Lynch again went for the Manhandle Slam but Belair kicked off the turnbuckle into a backflip to escape before hitting the K.O.D. to get the win. The crowd was absolutely mad for the finish and the match was fantastic. Belair already has a true legacy at WrestleMania.
In a just world, she is the next wrestler to have an Undertaker-style “streak” at WrestleMania. Bianca Belair def. Becky Lynch (c) via pinfall to win the title.
