Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair made history at Wrestlemania 37 by being the first black women to compete against each other for a World Title in a Wrestlemania main event. In addition to that, Stephanie McMahon wrote on Twitter that Heather McLaughlin was first female photographer to work ringside at Wrestlemania. McLaughlin has been working with the company as far back as the 2017 No Mercy PPV but this was her first time doing photography at ringside for Wrestlemania.
Gender Disparity in Photojournalism Standing next to 250 pounds of muscled male testosterone doesn’t phase Heather McLaughlin, who calmly adjusts her camera lens and snaps a shot of him ironing his ring uniform in a bright green speedo. It’s just after 3:30 PM on a Sunday afternoon, and McLaughlin is backstage at a televised World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) event.
