WrestleMania Results and Reaction 04.04 Part 1
Cesaro defeats Drew Gulak
The kickoff show does not disappoint. Both superstars are elite and gave a great showing. Cesaro picked up the win with a unique airplane spin. Something new for the viewers to talk about for now on.
Reaction: It is about time that Cesaro wins a match. Hopefully his drought is over and he can someday be champion.
Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross defeat The Kabuki Warriors
Alexa started it and she ended it with a Twisted Bliss. Bliss and Cross are the new tag team champions.
Reaction: It is a great deal for Bliss and Cross to be champions and being on Smackdown. This may be an indicator that two superstars in the Elimination match may team up and seek a tag team title opportunity. As for the Kabuki Warriors, Asuka can move on and focus on her singles match.
Elias defeated King Corbin
Corbin has a bad habit of arguing with a referee. Once again, this cost him the match with Elias. For Elias, it is about time he won a match at Wrestlemania.
Reaction: This storyline will not end. There is still plenty to go from this. For Corbin, how long will he wear the crown?
Becky Lynch defeated Shayna Baszler
Lynch retains the RAW championship for now. Throughout the match, Lynch was being outhandled. Lynch got lucky for the pin. Baszler applied the clutch for her signature move. Lynch was trying to counter-attack, not realizing Baszler's shoulder was down. The referee called one two three for the win.
Reaction: It is not over. Baszler will go after Lynch.
Sami Zayn defeated Daniel Bryan
This was a great match. A lot of running and trash talking by Zayn. However, there was a lesson learned here. When you fight, focus on your opponent and not elsewhere. That is what happened with Bryan who decided to jump over the ropes and landed on Cesaro and Shinsuke Nakamura. Bryan returned and went on the top corner buckle to jump on Zayn. Zayn kicked Daniel in the air and pinned him for the win.
Morrison defeated Kingston and Uso
This was the strangest finish I've ever seen in my life. All three superstars were on the top of the ladder trying to get the titles. However, Kingston and Uso had the hanger but Morrison fell down with the titles. Morrison and Miz remain tag team champions.
Kevin Owens defeated Seth Rollins
Owens climbed on top of the WrestleMania sign and landed on Rollins while he was laying on the announce table. The table broke and so did Rollin's soul. After the restart, Owens did what he had to do to shut Rollins for good.
Braun Strowman defeated Goldberg
Strowman is now the new Universal Champion. He slammed Goldberg four consecutive times for the win.
The Undertaker defeated AJ Styles
The movie package made Undertaker look young. The deadman fought his battles by going head to head with AJ Styles, Karl Anderson, Luke Gallows, and the guys in dark hoodie gowns. The Phenom buried the Phenomenal One for the win.
Of course, with the crowd in attendance, it would have been more spectacular. WWE did a wonderful job entertaining the viewers. It left a good taste and the eagerness to watch part 2, Sunday night, for the rest of WrestleMania 36. You can listen to the HHWShow Podcast for more the results and reaction of part 1.
