Today in History: Leilani Kai vs. Wendi Richter at WrestleMania I

On this day in history:

March 31st, 1985 | At the inaugural WrestleMania, Leilani Kai defended the Women’s Championship against Wendi Richter. Both women had plenty of backup, Leliani having The Fabulous Moolah in her corner and Wendi having pop star Cyndi Lauper in hers. Wendi would win the match and the title when she rolled the momentum from Leilani’s crossbody into a pin of her own, earning the distinction of being WrestleMania’s very first female victor.
