WWE WRESTLEMANIA 37 LIVE BLOG & MATCH COVERAGE
...try not to wrestle any matches on your way to the parking lot!
The pre-show opens once again with Kayla Braxton welcoming us to the show and introducing her panel, tonight consisting of Jerry “the King” Lawler, Booker T, John “Bradshaw” Layfield, and Peter Rosenberg. They set to the task of breaking the card down and previewing it match by match as usual.
The main show kicks off with Ashland Craft singing America the Beautiful for us.
The same intro video from yesterday follows.
Pillar of the community Titus O’Neil and noted racist Hulk Hogan come to the stage dressed as pirates to do some hosting business. They hype up the show and we get into the action.
Randy Orton vs. the Fiend
Alexa Bliss, makeup smeared and petticoats hanging out from under her skirt to a frankly absurd degree, cranks a giant Jack-in-the-Box at ringside to let the Fiend, no longer extra crispy, out.
Diving lariat off the box, we get a bell, big Rock Bottom follows! Bellowing, he takes his time for a followup and Orton bails to the floor. Back suplex into the announce table but the Fiend shrugs it off and applies the mandible claw! Randy fights free and hits the hanging DDT but Wyatt pops up while he’s still recovering! Block the RKO, pass the Fiend face-first into what Michael Cole calls the “box-like structure” or in English, the Jack-in-the-Box.
Garvin Stomp, Bray visibly slowing but able to run the ropes and hit the freight train crossbody into grounded punches! Off the ropes, Orton rolls away from a senton and passes the Fiend to the floor! Back inside, the Viper goes to that special place but Wyatt grabs the mandible claw again! Sister Abigail clutch, ringposts spouting gouts of flame, Alexa Bliss, now wearing a leather vest over a black dress and pouring black ifchor from a crown of thorns, appears atop the box!
Randy takes advantage...
Randy Orton wins by pinfall with the RKO.
Postmatch, Alexa sits there and the Fiend stares. The lights go down.
Pillar of the community Titus O’Neil and Noted Racist Hulk Hogan are backstage chatting with Eric Bischoff when Bayley rolls up.
Bayley apologizes for her fellow co-hosts leaving her out of greeting Bischoff and invites him on Ding Dong, Hello! He begs off but puts Sasha Banks vs. Bianca Belair from last night over. Bayley tries to get the focus back on her, Eric asks the Hulkster about his new boat and they go off to discuss it, leaving Titus behind with Bayley. He gives her his hat and walks off.
I have to run and use the restroom and this next match doesn’t get a full video package recap, so my lovely wife Josie handles my station for a moment to make sure I don’t miss anything and this is what she has for y’all—
Purple Cat Ears vs. the Bully Broads
Natalya and Tamina warm up. Natalya’s boobs are booblin.
Enter Nya and Shaina. Shaina does some swagger for the crowd, Nya has the EYE OF THE TIGER. A fabulous tiger to be sure, because she’s covered in glitter.
Natalya & Tamina vs. Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler (c) (WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship)
Natalya & Baszler to start, mat grappling, stalemates, and we get tags to the big ladies.

Post-match, we get an in-ring confrontation, Logan Paul shoves Sami down and raises Owens’ hand.
KO doesn’t like that, kick to the gut, Stunner!
Matt Riddle is scooting around backstage when he runs into Ranjin Singh and Great Khali. Singh has business to take care of and leaves Riddle to chat with Khali. He tells Great he should open up a store for giants, but he’s not impressed.
Rob Van Dam rolls up to translate, and RVD whips out some branded rolling papers as an example of the creative branding they’ll need to do to make this giant store a success.
