No-Holds Barred Match: Roman Reigns vs. The Undertaker
Good ‘ole “JR” Jim Ross is joining us all at the announcer’s booth. This one is sure to be a slobber knocker! It’s time for the main event of the evening!
This match certainly lived up to its hype. The Undertaker fought valiantly, but on this night, he was no match for the might of the Roman Empire. It looked like ‘Taker sent Reigns to hell with the tombstone piledriver, but Reigns kicks out.
Roman almost destroys ‘Taker with a flurry of spears and steel chair shots. But Undertaker kept kicking out.
At the conclusion of the match, Roman ran the ropes and leveled Undertaker with an awesome spear.

After the match, The Undertaker recieve a standing ovation by many in attendance, as they chant in unison “Thank you,’Taker.” Undertaker leaves his trench-coat and hat lying in the middle of the ring, possibly to signify his retirement. He walks up the ring as his song plays throughout the area encased in a purple glow. He lifts his fist up in the air as the crowd cheers and praises his name.
Six-Pack Challenge for the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship: Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Naomi vs. Natalya vs. Mickie James vs. Becky Lynch vs. Carmella
Lynch sends Carmella flying with a Becksploder to start off the match. Becky even hits James Ellsworth with the Becksploder (but that’s later on in the match).
The veteran Mickie James ascended the top rope for a Senton Bomb onto Becky and goes for the pin. Bliss breaks up the pin-fall, and the action continues.
Hats off to Nattie for this epic double sharpshooter.
Naomi was completely dominant in the match’s closing moments. She leaped onto four of her opponents and knocked them all down outside the ring. The Orlando native then took to the top rope, but fell to Bliss’ stiff fist.
Bliss looks primed for the win, but Naomi turns the tables and places Alexa in a very intricate submission hold. Bliss taps.
Naomi submits Alexa Bliss to become the NEW WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion
WWE Universal Championship match: Goldberg (c) vs. Brock Lesnar
Lesnar nails Goldberg with a flurry of German suplexes to start off the match. Lesnar gets too cocky, and Goldberg turns the tables. Lesnar gets dropped with spear after spear. He even gets speared through the barricade by ringside.
Goldberg and Lesnar duel big moves for the remainder of the match. Goldberg hits a fourth spear and a jackhammer. But that’s enough to put The Beast Incarnate away. Brock drops Goldberg with a finishing F5.
Brock Lesnar defeats Goldberg to become the NEW WWE Universal Champion
WWE World Championship match: Bray Wyatt (c) vs. Randy Orton
This was match was entirely unique, just for the fact that at certain points, disgusting images of insects were slithering on the ring’s canvas, from maggots to worms to cockroaches.
Wyatt appeared to have the psychological edge, but appearance isn’t everything. One RKO outta nowhere, and that’s all Abigail wrote Bray’s title reign.
Randy Orton defeats Bray Wyatt and becomes the NEW WWE World Champion
Unsanctioned Match: Triple H vs. Seth Rollins
Triple H was in prime form for this match-up. He keep targeting Rollins’ knee and Seth looked hurt. But the heart of Seth Rollins is simply too much for The Game to handle. Triple H tried to take out Rollins with the sledgehammer, but Rollins took control. Trips even ended up knocking his wife Stephanie off on the apron and through a table. He looked absolutely shocked and turned right around to a pedigree from Seth Rollins
Seth Rollins defeats Triple H
John Cena & Nikki Bella vs. The Miz & Maryse
This match was a true couples night out. Cena and Nikki ended the match with a double pin after these two lovebirds performed an Attitude Adjustment on both their respective opponents. Lights out for Miz and Maryse.

Breaking News: John Cena asks Nikki Bella if she’ll marry him. Nikki agrees.
Fatal 4-Way Ladder Match for the WWE Raw Tag team Championship: Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson (c) vs. Enzo & Cass vs. Sheamus & Cesaro vs. The Hardy Boyz
The New Day come out and announce that they’ll be a fourth team in this match. And it’s the f**king Hardy Boyz!
The Hardy’s come in like a great ball of fire, in their attempt to delete the competition. The other three teams put up a hell of a fight, but these broken brothers were too much to handle. Jeff performed a sick Swanton Bomb off the ladder onto Cesaro. And Matt grabbed the straps. The WWE Raw Tag Team Championships have been procured by House of Hardy!
The Hardy Boyz are the NEW WWE Raw Tag Team Champions
Fatal 4-Way elimination match for the WWE Raw Women’s Championship: Bayley (c) vs. Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Nia Jax
Nia Jax dominated everyone early on in the match-up. The three smaller wrestlers needed to band together to put away Ms. Jax, with an awesome triple-teamed powerbomb.
Charlotte took out Sasha Banks, as she tripped her in an exposed middle turnbuckle.
“The Queen” Charlotte Flair looked dominant. But not dominant enough to put away the lovable Bayley. Ms. Hug Life put away the Queen of WWE with a Macho Man elbow. Oooooohhhh yeeaaahhhhh!!

WWE United States Championship: Chris Jericho (c) vs. Kevin Owens
Jericho really took the fight to KO in this match-up. Y2J left the big man stunned when he kicked out of a pop-up powerbomb. Chris smacked Big Kev with the Code Breaker, and looked primed for victory.
Big Kev escaped by the Code Breaker by literally one finger (on the bottom rope). The action spills outside the ring, and KO turns the tide. Owens executes Y2J with a sick spike powerbomb to the ring apron.
Kevin Owens defeats Chris Jericho to become the NEW WWE United States Championship
AJ Styles vs. Shane McMahon
Shane McMahon is actually kicking a lot of ass in this match. I’m surprised, but not too surprised. The WWE Universe has known for years that Shane O’Mac was one tough s.o.b. But who thought he’d be able to go toe to toe, punch for punch, and hold for hold with “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles. Shane even kicked out of a Styles Clash. WTF?
A Pele kick by Styles knocks out the referee. AJ goes outside the ring and bring out the hardware (I’m talkin’ steel trash cans). AJ sets up Shane for a phenomenal forearm to the trash can in the corner, but Shane reverses the move. Shane capitalizes and hits a classic coast-to-coast dropkick to the trashcan to AJ Styles’ skull.
Shane props AJ Styles on the announcer’s table, and attempts a top rope elbow drop. He fails miserably. But Shane isn’t done, he reverses another phenomenal forearm with a sick DDT. Shane attempts an awe-inspiring shooting star press, but crashes to the ring in epic fashion as AJ moves out of the way.
AJ capitalizes and finally nails Shane with the phenomenal forearm as an exclamation point to include an awesome match.
AJ Styles defeats Shane McMahon

WWE Intercontinental Championship: Dean Ambrose (c) vs. Baron Corbin
Both Ambrose and Corbin put their all in this match. Corbin looked like he was going to finish off a tired Ambrose, but then all of a sudden Mean Dean hits a Dirty Deeds DDT.

2017 Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal
Wow. Just wow. I would have never expected this match’s outcome. I, like many others, believed that Braun Strowman would walk away with the Andre the Giant memorial battle royal trophy. I thought it’d go down to the Big Show and Strowman to close to match.
Who woulda thought the last two wrestlers in the ring would be Mojo Rawley and “Hard body” Jinder Mahal. New England tightend Rob Gronkowski even got involved after Mahal showed him disrespect at ringside. Gronkowski knocks down Mahal in the ring. Then Mojo comes in, cleans house of NXT’s Killian Dain, and then fights Mahal on the ropes for the finish.
Mojo Rawley wins the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal
Crusierweight Championship: Neville (c) vs. Austin Aries
This was an awesome start to WrestleMania. There were many high impact moves from both men. Aries looked like he was about to put away Neville with the Last Chancery submission move, but Neville racked Aries’ eyes. Neville put away Aries with a sick Red Arrow (corkscrew shooting star press).
Neville defeats Austin Aries to retain the WWE Cruiserweight Championship
