Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair made history as they main evented WrestleMania 37’s first night. That was an incredibly special moment for a lot of people, but Jim Cornette was not a fan.
During his Jim Cornette’s Drive-Thru, he picked the SmackDown Women’s Title match apart. Cornette started out by saying that WWE didn’t advertise Banks vs Belair as “the main event” for WrestleMania, but he must have missed how they made such a big deal about the announcement leading up to the event.
“Is it now that they have to prove that the women are equal that they have to put this match on last?” he asked. He then wondered if WWE has “widdled the wrestling audience” down to the point where only diehards are left so “they don’t see anything wrong that the last match at WrestleMania is a girls’ match.”
Cornette said his favorite match at last year’s Mania was Charlotte Flair vs Rhea Ripley, but he would have thought that they were crazy if that was the main event. He also called out WWE for having guaranteed streaming service money from Peacock so it doesn’t matter how they stack the card.
He listed many famous feuds from the past that have main evented WrestleMania and then included Belair in Banks at the end.
“Is this just what it is now that the only people watching wrestling don’t mind when two five-foot-three-inch 130 pound girls are in the main event?”
Jim Cornette’s rant continued for some time as he compared WWE’s men’s and women’s divisions to the NBA and the WNBA. He wondered if their championship games shared a night which would go on last.
You can check out Jim Cornette’s entire video about Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair’s WrestleMania main event below. He had a lot to say, including about how WWE has too many titles in the first place, but he still believes that Bobby Lashley and Drew McIntyre should have gone on last for night one.
