The buildup to WrestleMania 34 — the biggest annual pay-per-view event of WWE had helped shoot up the expectations of wrestling fans and the main event has so far lived up to the same. The likes of Ronda Rousey and The Undertaker producing some adrenaline pumping moments have got the pulses racing.
The main card action on Sunday, April 9 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in Louisiana began on a high with a riveting battle for Intercontinental Championship. The WrestleMania 34 could not have asked for a better star but did the other fights live up to the expectations?
Check out the complete results here.
Brock Lesnar retains Universal Championship after beating Roman Reigns (via pinfall)
Roman Reigns was booed when he entered the Superdome on Sunday. The WWE star, who was making his fourth straight WrestleMania main event appearance though came up with a memorable performance despite losing a fiercely-fought battle.
Lesnar started by getting Reigns suplexed a couple of times and then used the F5 effectively to drain out his opponent. The highpoint of the match came when the defending champion suplexed the challenger on his head outside the ring.
Reigns never backed off as he put the pressure back on Lesnar with back-to-back spears. He also drove The Beast Incarnate on to the announcer table with a spear.
However, Reigns' end came when he ran into an F5, the sixth of the match, from Lesnar, who completed the pin.
The Undertaker defeats John Cena (via pinfall)
Speculations were rife about The Undertaker's comeback but nothing was made official about The Phenom's fight against John Cena until Sunday's match.
The Undertaker's entrance was received with loud cheers from the 70,000-strong awestruck fans at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and Cena, who had reached the ring early to get a closer glimpse of their favorite star.
How's that for a return?
It seems Bruce Prichard was right about The Undertaker's fitness levels as the superstar of WWE was on top of his game in the much-anticipated fight.
Unlike the buildup to the fight, it was short-lived as The Dead Man wasted no time in decimating Cena. Undertaker started aggressively by landing quite a few blows on Cena, who had no answers to the onslaught.
The 53-year-old, who was moving freely in the ring, choke-slammed Cena and delivered the Tombstone Piledriver, much to the delight of the fans before getting the pinfall.
