Wrestlemania 34 takeaways: Brock Lesnar's win shocks WWE Universe

Adjust Comment Print

Roman Reigns: This will serve as Lesnar's first appearance since WrestleMania after re-signing with WWE. Wasn't this supposed to be the coronation of Roman Reigns as the new Universal Heavyweight Champion? The two started out exchanging German suplexes and Superman punches, much as you might expect-the beginning of this match was like when you're watching two Ryu players in the arcade, and they spend the entire round spamming hadoukens at each other. When you throw in the fact that their promos for this match were segments that never commanded my primary attention away from the internet, seeing more of this feud now is just unappealing. More likely, Lesnar may have been frustrated that the crowd treated the match like a joke, chanting "This is awful" and "Boring" throughout. If you thought things got physical on Sunday night, note that this time around, Lesnar and Reigns will battle inside the confines of a steel cage.

WWE announced today that Lesnar has re-signed with the professional wrestling promotion. She performed a Twisted Bliss over the top-rope outside the ring and hoped the tides would turn in her favour and Jax would be counted out but that was not the case.

The dream match was on deck with AJ Styles defending the WWE Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura.

The Smackdown Live Women's Championship match was an instant classic.

Trump Rips Dem Joe Manchin: 'You're Not Getting Help'
The crowd applauded - as did Representative Evan Jenkins, a Republican challenging Manchin - at the dig at the incumbent senator. In a tweet, the president credits "the strong immigration laws of Mexico and their willingness to use them".

The Universal Championship match will be one of seven titles defended at the Greatest Royal Rumble event. The creative braintrust of WWE-Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon, Triple H and many others-have long seemed to believe Reigns was that person. It was a odd match, but brilliantly executed, leaving the fans questioning whether or not it would happen all night.

Daniel Bryan made a winning return to the WWE when he and Shane McMahon beat Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. The Miz looked like a character off Naruto while Seth Rollins looked absolutely insane with blue contacts and it's 100 per cent the reason why he's the new Intercontinental champ. And Taker took care of Cena in under five minutes to make a huge statement that he isn't finished. These moments date back almost twenty years with some of the biggest taking place all the way back in 1998.

There was also a large question mark surrounding who would be Braun Strowman's tag-team partner as he attempted to capture the Raw Tag Team Championships.
