Charlotte vs Sasha Banks vs Becky Lynch
****

April 3, 2016
AT&T Stadium in Dallas, TX
WWE WrestleMania 32
WWE Women’s Championship

Many felt this was the best match at WrestleMania. While it did feel a bit rushed, it contained a lot of spectacular spots and the crowd was into it mostly the whole time. The ring entrances were at another level, since this was Mania.

Highlights were Banks doing this crazy tope where she almost landed on her head, and an Asai moonsault outside the ring by Charlotte. The latter is something Shawn Michaels would do at many Manias, and hers was a thing of beauty. Lynch also did a dive onto Ric Flair outside the ring that was funny and popped the crowd because no one expected it and it came right after he had a “Wooo!” shouting match with Banks. Flair was of course having the time of his life watching his daughter perform in a high level match, defending a belt that has finally been taken seriously by the promotion and the fans, thanks to matches like these.

The other highlight was Banks wearing ring gear as a tribute to Eddie Guerrero, whom she loved growing up, and she also did a frog splash in his honor.  This match is only on the WWE Network, but here’s a clip:
