After Banks used Belair's hair against her to counter multiple moves, Belair used her hair as a weapon, whipping it into Banks' stomach. After a series of counters between the two women, Belair hit the Kiss of Death to pick up the victory.

Just after the bell rang and before the two women locked up, the moment sunk in for both women, who couldn't help but soak in the history they were making as the first Black women to headline WrestleMania.

Belair earned her shot at the SmackDown Women's Championship by winning the 2021 Women's Royal Rumble and choosing Banks as her WrestleMania opponent.

This marks Belair's first reign as SmackDown Women's Champion. Banks won the title on October 25, 2020 at WWE Hell in a Cell by defeating Bayley inside Hell in a Cell.
