WrestleMania 34 had a stacked card. It was full of matches that could steal the show. But did it really? Take A Look Back At WrestleMania 34:
Matt Hardy wins the ATGBR: The kick-off show was started with the battle royal. It was full of mid-carders from start to finish. It was supposed to be dull but things got interesting in the closing minutes of the match. After being tossed into the Lake Of Reincarnation, Bray Wyatt finally emerged. But what was surprising was the fact that he helped Matt Hardy win the Battle Royal. Things can get interesting next night on RAW.

Cedric Alexander def. Mustafa Ali via pinfall: Cedric Alexander was for a long time- the uncrowned King Of the Cruiserweights. For a long time now, Cedric was notching up great performances, only to come up short. On the other hand, Mustafa Ali had become the heart of 205 Live throughout the tournament to crown a new champion. The match pitted two babyfaces against each other. WWE let the two have their moment and it was finally Cedric Alexander with a lumber check to win the big one.

Naomi wins the Women’s Battle Royal: The only storyline in this match was off Sasha and Bayley. And it has been incredible thus far. Bayley saved Banks by eliminating Sarah Logan. And it seemed as though they would put aside their differences but surprisingly Bayley dumped Banks to the floor. And then Naomi came out of nowhere to hit the Rear View and eliminate Bayley.
Intercontinental Championship-Seth Rollins def. The Miz(c) and Finn Balor: This was the first match to kick off the main card. And boy did it deliver! It was a smooth and clean match as The Miz sent “The Miztourage” back, saying that he had this match. The Miz was at his usual best sneaking up from behind Rollins and Balor whenever he could. Balor had the momentum as he hit the Coup de Grace on Miz. As he was getting ready to pin Miz, Rollins came up with the Curb Stomp on Balor and pinned him. Rest assured that this trio will continue their rivalry on RAW. But for now, Rollins is a Grand Slam Champion. Take A Look Back At WrestleMania 34 here and now.
Charlotte(c) def. Asuka via submission: This match was more about Asuka’s unbeaten streak than anything else. And the two gave it their all in the ring. This match was full of spots. Asuka intercepted a moonsault from The Queen into a triangle choke. Charlotte hit Asuka with a Spanish Fly from the top rope that got a bit pop. And ended the match with a figure 8 and a rare tap out from Asuka.
Jinder Mahal def. Rusev(via pinfall), Randy Orton(c), Bobby Roode: This match was dominated by “Rusev Day” chants. And what could have been a great Rusev Day celebration was interrupted by a Khallas from Jinder to Rusev. This was thanks to a distraction from Sunil Singh. And the Modern Day Maharaja is now your new United States Champion.
Ronda Rousey & Kurt Angle def. Triple H & Stephanie McMahon via submission: Talk about getting things fun for WrestleMania. And this match delivered just that. WWE did its best with the storytelling here. Although the match lacked the high spots, it certainly didn’t lack the drama. It was Ronda with the armbar submission on Stephanie for the win.
The Undertaker def. John Cena via pinfall: John Cena entered WrestleMania tonight as a fan. He was attending the show as a fan. This was until a whisper to the ear from a referee after Charlotte’s victory. And John Cena was on stage building the tension. Elias, however, came out to crash the party but was met with an Attitude Adjustment. As Cena got up the ramp to leave, the gong finally hit as darkness took over. The Deadman finally answered Cena’s challenge and was in his usual attire. Undertaker who had a hip surgery last year, removed all doubts. He moved as swift as he ever did in the ring which brought out loud cheers from the crowd. Getting to the match however, it was just a squash match to please the crowd.
The Bludgeon Brothers def. The Usos(c), The New Day via pinfall: This was set out to be an explosive match from the start. And it delivered as much. The Usos laid out a barrage of super kicks on Harper and Rowan. And The New Day tried their best to muster some offense. But as the storyline dictated, nothing could stop the Bludgeon Brothers. They withstood whatever was thrown their way. The match ended when Harper hit a powerbomb from the top rope to Kofi.
Nia Jax def. Alexa Bliss via pinfall: Nia Jax has completed her transformation with the end of this match. She was a dominant heel before but now is a beloved babyface champion. In the match, the storytelling was spot on, with Alexa dictating the match’s pace for a good amount of time. Add in a bit of trash-talking and the Goddess was in her zone. But this was to be Nia’s night as she took Alexa to the top for a Samoan drop. And as she pinned Alexa, she completed her face turn.
AJ Styles def. Shinsuke Nakamura via pinfall: If Nakamura’s entrance was anything to go by, you surely would think he would have come out on top. The match was of course very physical with each competitor giving their all. But the lack of build to the match caught up with the overall in-ring psychology. The match ended when Styles hit the Styles Clash to win. Things, however, got interesting after the match. Nakamura presented the WWE title to Styles, and as Styles was taking it from his hands, Nakamura went low. That’s right, in a shocking state of affairs thus far, Nakamura low blowed Styles before disseminating him with vicious kicks. So we now have a heel Nakamura for SD Live.
Daniel Bryan & Shane McMahon def. Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn via submission: The long-awaited return of Daniel Bryan to a wrestling ring is now done. Owens and Zayn cleverly took out Bryan before the start with a powerbomb on the ring apron. It was now a handicap match with Shane doing a few spots. But eventually, the numbers took control of the match as Owens and Zayn punished Shane. But, the drama continued as Bryan got into the match with a tag from Shane. He did his usual spots with much love from the WWE Universe. And he ended the match after he put Zayn in the YES lock following the running knee. This means that Owens and Zayn stay fired from SD Live.

Braun Strowman & Nicholas def. The Bar via pinfall: If you still don’t know who Nicholas is, then its a shame. The most trending kid on social media- Nicholas is the youngest Tag Team Champion of all time. Braun Strowman chose the 10-year old boy from the crowd to be his partner. It was a physical content mixed with some funny moments. The match ended with Strowman powerslamming Cesaro and pinning him. Take A Look Back At WrestleMania 34 and get your WrestleMania moment.
Brock Lesnar def. Roman Reigns via pinfall: The title itself is shocking even me. Brock Lesnar was all set to lose the Universal Title to Roman Reigns and head to UFC. However, Brock dominated the entire match as only he could with vicious suplexes and F5s. Roman did kick out of 5 F5s to make some effort in the match. But Lesnar was ultimately too much for Reigns as he bloodied Reigns before pinning him with a devastating F5. Long after the match was over and the blood was cleared from Reigns’ face, he looked dazed and confused as he walked off the ramp. And suddenly Roman looked less like The Big Dog and more like Leati Joseph Anoa’i.
