Battleground Kickoff Show!

Fandango vs. Adam Rose W/Summer Rae, Layla & The Exotic Express

This match was announce just hours before Battleground and Fandango made his way to the ring first, and I’m not going to lie, it feels strange seeing him come out alone! Out next are Adam Rose and his Exotic Express! Joining The Exotic Express tonight are Fandango’s exes Summer Rae and Layla! We have seen both Summer and Layla fight for Fandango’s attention and now their working together making his life HELL! A lot of people don’t like this storyline at all! I’m not going to say I’m in love with it, but I feel with more time this could have been better! Once the bell rings Fandango leaps at Rose and connects with a forearm in the turnbuckle. Fandango continued to control the match with a back suplex and a pin of two! Summer and Layla see Rose needs help so they begin to lead The Exotic Express around the ring to distract Fandango. Fandango despite trying to ignore them leaves the ring and asks both women what they are doing. Layla slaps him right across the face, and Summer soon follows! Once Fandango is back in the ring, it’s all Rose! Adam connects with many of his signatures such as the Spinebuster and The Cho Cho! Fandango stumbles forward and Adam Rose connects with a Party Foul to win the match!

Winner – Adam Rose

Grade – D, I’ve been moderately entertained by both Fandango’s girl problems and Adam Rose, but tonight, WWE didn’t even really give these two a chance. Most people are probably going to grade this lower, but I don’t feel it failed. Rose did manage to somewhat get over with the crowd in the short time and they did still tell the story that needed to be told. I have a feeling change is in Fandango’s future either that or he’ll end up in the same position Heath Slater and Damien Sandow find themselves in. On the other side, Adam Rose still remains undefeated, but who has he beaten? Even on NXT he hasn’t beaten any big names. I do feel if WWE invested the time into Adam Rose like they have for many other blossoming stars, than he could become a threat in the Mid Card division. Hell I’ve suggested to a good friend of mine before to actually team Rose and Fandango up. Have Rose invite Fandango out after seeing him so depressed and then go on from there. I could go on but I don’t want to waste the time!

Cameron vs. Naomi

The feud between these two has been brewing since the month before Money in the Bank! Cameron has grown in jealousy and feels Naomi thinks she is better than her. Things finally exploded between these two during a tag match against Aj Lee (c) and Paige, after Cameron tagged herself in just to get hit with The Paige Turner by Paige. After the match the two got in each other’s face until they began to roll around the ring to the outside of the ring. Cameron is out first, debuting a new theme and acting like a stereotypical popular girl. She makes her way to the ring making nasty faces at people, or checking herself out in a makeup mirror. Out next is Naomi and she isn’t wasting anytime as she makes her way to the ring and tried to get the jump on Cameron but the ref caught her. Once the bell rang, Naomi went right after Cameron, but she hid behind the ropes forcing the ref to pull her away, but Naomi was not going away without a fight, a decision she would soon regret as Cameron kicks her in the gut and begins to control the match after slamming Naomi face first into the canvas. Cameron continues to control the match with basic strikes and in all honestly a very impressive submissions hold that resembled a Bow and Arrow, but instead of her knee, she used her foot. Naomi did get back into the match and she took it to Cameron with some hammering strikes, but every chance Cameron got she fled, at one point she even began to walk out of the match itself, but Naomi chased after her and tossed her into the barricade. Surprisingly the fans did get into the match as the chanted Naomi’s name. Naomi tossed Cameron off the ropes, but Cameron counter with a simple kick to Naomi while she was bent over. Cameron took it upon herself to taunt Naomi before going to bounce off the rope, but Naomi grabbed a handful of hair. Naomi began to talk trash to Cameron, but Cameron tossed Naomi forward into the ropes, and it looked like the top rope caught her neck! Cameron rolls Naomi up with a School Girl and makes sure to grab a handful of tights to get her the victory!

Winner – Cameron

Grade – C, I feel like a lot more people are going to rate this lower than I did. I’m not going to say these two went out there and stole the show, but they certainly did not ruin the show! I honestly think Cameron shows promise. She definitely has her character down, and we all know she can be annoying! All she needs to do is get better in the ring. I don’t see her becoming the “Face” of WWE Divas Division, but I do think she can be a valuable addition! From what we saw tonight, Cameron is not as bad as we though. I’m not saying she’s great, I’m not even saying she’s good! All I’m saying is we have seen worse. You can say Naomi carried the match; it doesn’t matter because Cameron proved tonight, that she is able to wrestle! I do feel she needs more training, but she is learning and that’s what I take from it. As for Naomi it was probably the worst match I’ve seen her in, but that’s not a bad thing because she has been in some great matches! I don’t think this hurts Naomi, Cameron “clear as day” grabbed the tights! I don’t feel like this feud is over, but I honestly don’t think we’re going to see this at Summer Slam! Maybe inside a Diva Battle Royal, but that’s it! I take this as a positive sign in all honestly. The WWE Divas Division now has, Aj, Paige, Alicia Fox, Cameron, Naomi, Nikki Bella and Natalya! 5 out of those 7 all have some sort of character to them, Natalya is busy down in NXT it’s seems and Nikki is just Brie’s sister and John Cena’s Girlfriend really! Either way the point is the Divas Division is starting to look up!

Battleground

WWE Tag Team Championships/Two out of Three Falls Match

The Usos |Jimmy (c) & Jey Uso (c) |vs. The Wyatt Family (Luke Harper & Eric Rowan)

We are starting off the night with the WWE Tag Team Championships! Out first are The Usos and next is The Wyatt Family. We’ve seen these two teams face off many times by now, but every time they fight, it’s always great! Tonight’s match is different though, you have to defeat your opponents a total of two times! The first team with two falls wins the match! I believe its Jimmy Uso starting off with Eric Rowan. Uso does not wait for Rowan to takes his Sheep Mask off, as he swings right away and punches the mask off him. All this does is anger Rowan who over powers Jimmy and backs him up into the turnbuckle where he proceeds to wail on him. Rowan beats down on Jimmy for a bit longer before tagging in Luke Harper. Harper went to bounce Jimmy off the rope, but The Uso counters and hits a beautiful enzguri, sending Harper outside of the ring, and soon Rowan, as Jimmy runs at him and dropkicks his legs to send him off as well. For a second it looked like The Usos were going to fly, but Harper had already moved himself and Rowan out of the way. Once Harper gets back into the ring, he rushes at Jimmy backing him into a turnbuckle and begins the beat down! Harper and Rowan begin to tag each other back into the match after they took turns beating down on Jimmy. Both Wyatts kept control over Jimmy with heavy strikes and keeping him locked in a headlock for long periods of time! Luke Harper had a headlock, locked in tight on Jimmy, but The Uso fought to his feet and managed to hit Harper with a Jawbreaker. Jimmy tried to tag in his partner, but Luke Harper was holding on to his foot! Jimmy managed to wiggle free of Harper’s grasp and tag in Jey who immediately took it to the top rope. Luke Harper ran at Jimmy, but The Uso lept over him and bounced off the rope and got hit with a huge boot from Luke Harper. Luke Harper covers Jey for the first fall of the match.

First Fall – The Wyatt Family

Once the second bell is rang, Harper ran at Jimmy Uso, (who was waiting in the turnbuckle) and connects with a hug splash, but it does not get him the win. He makes the tag to Rowan, and he continues to control the match, wearing Jimmy down with his signature vice lock, where he just takes his two fists and pushes them against the sides of your head, but Jimmy fought to his feet, and connected with elbows to the gut of Rowan to get him off. Jimmy went to lift Rowan up and slam him, but it seems he is too weak and Rowan just falls on top of him for a two count. He tags in Harper, and Harper just continues to the beat down. At one point it looked like Jimmy was back in it, as he began to trade blows with Harper, but Luke got the better of him in that exchange! It wasn’t until Harper went for a back suplex that Jimmy was able to counter into a back flip and land on his feet to make the tag to Jey. Harper ran at Jimmy, but Jimmy moved out of the way and Harper ran chest first into the turnbuckle. Jey quickly makes his way in and rolls Luke Harper up for the three, tying the score up 1-1!

Second Fall – The Usos

Before the ref can ring the third bell, Rowan raced in and he and Harper began to beat down on Jey, before the ref pushed them back and Rowan out of the ring. The third bell rings and Luke Harper runs at Jey and continues the beat down as he tags in Rowan and we see the two continue to do what they have for the entire match. They don’t let up on their opponent, continuing to beat down on him with physical strikes and then wear him down with long submission holds. Eric Rowan is in the ring and has Jey right in his turnbuckle. The Red Bearded man runs out Jey, but Jey moves out of the way and Eric Rowan, (who was looking for a shoulder thrust) goes shoulder first into the steel post. Harper tags himself in and goes into the opposite turnbuckle to Jey and runs at him, looking for a running bi boot, but once again Jey moves out of the way, and Harper goes flying over the ropes. Jey takes this time to catch his breath, and finally make a tag to his brother Jimmy! Jimmy comes firing in, and dives straight through the ropes to take out Luke Harper on the outside. Eric Rowan comes in, but Jimmy sends him over the ropes and back out before building momentum and flying over the ropes to take Rowan down. He tosses Harper back in the ring and hits him with a huge slam that only gives him a two. Jimmy surprised by the kick out, catches Harper off guard with a kick to the gut followed by an enzguri that sends Harper sitting down into the turnbuckle. Jimmy back up into the opposite turnbuckle from Harper and runs at him to slam his hop into the face of Harper. Jimmy runs back to the opposite turnbuckle again, but doesn’t see Harper behind him and pays for it when Harper splashes him into the turnbuckle. Luke Harper went to lift Jimmy Uso up for the Sit Down Power Bomb, but Jimmy slid out of it. The Uso attempts to hit Harper with a Samoan Drop, but can’t lift him! He does manage to stay in control, landing a super kick to the chin of Harper for a close two! Jimmy gets up and goes for another super kick, this time Harper catches his foot and sends him back into the turnbuckle before hitting a huge running big boot on him that sends The Uso out of the ring! Luke Harper has a strange look in his eye as he bounces off the rope and dives through the ropes, flatting Jimmy Uso! He tosses Jimmy back in the ring, and looks like he is going to hit him with the Sit Down Power Bomb, but he sees Jey Uso take down Eric Rowan on the outside. Luke Harper once again bounces off the ropes and he goes to dive through them again, but this time Jey Uso connects with a super kick. Jimmy rolls him up from behind and Luke Harper barley kicks out in time! Luke Harper gets up and finally hits The Sit Down Power Bomb, but Jimmy barley kicks out this time! Harper can’t believe it, and tags in Rowan, who climbs to the top of the turnbuckle and looked to hit Jimmy with his version of their splash, but The Uso moves out the way. Harper climbs to the top of the other turnbuckle, but Jimmy once again gets the better of him and pulls the leg and then leaps to his brother to make the tag. Jey climbs to the top rope and hits The Splash on Rowan, but only for a two count. Jey is in disbelief as no one has kicked out of The Splash yet. He goes to climb the turnbuckle once again, but Harper grabs his foot. Jey fights Harper off but now Rowan is up and the two begin to brawl at the top of the turnbuckle. Jimmy tags himself in, but Rowan quickly reverse smashing The Usos face first into each other before hitting them with a HUGE Double Superplex! Rowan covers Jimmy and somehow Jimmy kicks out just before three! Rowan tags in Harper and Harper just waits for Jimmy to get to his feet so he can hit him with the Discuss Clothesline. Once Jimmy got to his feet Harper went for the Clothesline, but Jimmy connecter with a super kicked that only stunned Harper for a moment, still connecting with the clothesline! Harper covers Jimmy but Jey barley breaks it up! Luke Harper just picks Jey up and tosses him out for the ring, but turns around to a super kick from Jimmy. Jey gets back in the ring and both Brothers hit stereo super kicks on Harper, and then onto Rowan who just go up on the apron. Both Jimmy and Jey climbed to the top of the same turnbuckle and hit Luke Harper with a Double Splash to retain their tag titles!

Winners & Still WWE Tag Team Champions – The Usos

Grade – A+, That match was fantastic! These four superstars went out there and outdid every match they have ever had together! That match could have legitimately ended at any one of the false ending and it still would have been considered a great match! I really thought they were going to strap The Wyatts here tonight, but The Usos just can’t be stopped! No matter what The Wyatts threw at Jimmy and Jey tonight, they kicked out of everything, except for the boot in the beginning of the match! I don’t think this one should continue. We have seen these two teams compete so much as of late, and I think we all need a break. The Wyatts still have Bray to lean on and will still be featured in his feud with Jericho witch I honestly believe will go on past tonight! The Usos now move onto another team, the only question is who? With Summer Slam coming up it wouldn’t make sense just to give Rybaxel as shot and it looked like Goldust and Stardust were next in line, but I don’t think WWE will do a Face vs. Face feud. The only team I can even think about is The Ascension on NXT. I guess we will just have to wait and see what is in store for both teams next!

Seth Rollins vs. Dean Ambrose

Before the match takes place, we are shown a beautifully put together video package for this feud. It shows an interview with all three members of The Shield and how Rollins spoke about how The Shield was a brotherhood and Ambrose said we are stronger together. Than we are shown Rollins betrayal of The Shield, him winning MitB and Ambrose chasing Rollins down wherever he goes and even preventing him from cashing in his briefcase! The video ends with Rollins curb stomping Ambrose’s face into the steel steps and standing tall saying “Seth Rollins is Best for Business!” Tom Phillips is backstage and ready to interview Mr. Money in the Bank, Seth Rollins before his match! Rollins talks about how Ambrose is like a filthy cockroach that won’t go away, he than answers Dean Ambrose’s question from Raw and says “No!” He said No, that is not all he has got and Ambrose should know the better than anyone. Rollins ends his interview by saying after he defeat Ambrose tonight he will be paying close attention to the Fatal Four way later tonight, before Dean Ambrose cuts him off and begins to beat him down around the arena. Many guards came to contain Ambrose, some I recognized like Jamie Noble, Joey Mercury and I think I saw Ricky Steamboat as well! Triple H comes in and tells them to get Ambrose out of here and tells them not to let him back in before screaming at Ambrose, “You’re Not Ruining This!” Triple H checks on Rollins, and apparently from what the commentators were saying is Ambrose has been kicked out of the arena and I guess the match is canceled?

WWE Divas Championship Match

Paige vs. Aj Lee (c)

Michael Cole informs us that he is being told to move on to the next match, which is for the WWE Divas Championship! The night after WrestleMania Paige upset Aj to win her first Divas Championship in an off the fly match! The night after Money in the Bank Aj returned and beat Paige to earn her second Divas championship in an off the fly match, and now all of a sudden their frenemies! Both women make their way to the ring and the match is under way. The two shake hands before it begins and we see Paige take the early advantage of the match as she just dominates Aj with stiff strikes, tossing her around the ring, around ringside, Paige dominated the majority of the early goings with Aj getting, little to no offense! Then things got strange, as Paige began to scream “Come on Aj!” and then I don’t know if it was them talking in the match, but I think we were supposed to hear it. I’m pretty sure I heard Paige ask Aj is she was ready before taking a spinning DDT and then I think I heard her tell the ref to let Aj get to her feet before her. It almost felt like Paige was letting Aj win, and then all of a sudden Aj locks in The Black Widow and it looks as if Aj is going to win, but Paige manages to break out of the submission hold and hit The Paige Turner on Aj for a two count! Paige screams one again “Come on Aj!” Paige locks in her submission hold witch she calls The PTO (Paige Tap Out…) AJ gets out of the hold before Paige can fully lock it in. She goes for a pin but Paige’s shoulder was up. Aj gets to her feet an runs at Paige to hit The Shining Wizard to retain the title.

Winner & Still Divas Champion – Aj Lee

Grade- C, I really thought this match was going to be a lot better than it was. I’m still rather fuzzy on weather Paige was helping Aj or not, but it doesn’t justify how sloppy things got. I’m not sure if it was Aj perhaps having a bit of ring rust or maybe the two just don’t mend well? But to anyone expecting a new Trish vs. Lita rivalry tonight was disappointed. At times this match shined, but not enough.

Backstage Segment W/Kane & Randy Orton

Orton is backstage looking for Kane, but when he finds him Kane informs him that he made mistake coming here! Orton admitted that he was wrong for attacking Kane and even says he’s sorry. Randy asks Kane if he is sorry for hitting him, and Kane responds by saying “Being The Devil’s Favorite Demon, I don’t say Sorry!” Orton goes on to make sure that Kane understands that they cannot let John Cena or Roman Reigns to walk out as World Champion. Kane goes on to assure Randy that the next World Champion is right here, but he doesn’t say if he is talking about Orton, himself or maybe Plan B?

Rusev W/Lana vs. Jack Swagger W/Zeb Colter

Rusev and Lana make their way to the ring first, and before Swagger and Colter come out Lana grabs a mic, but of course is interrupted by a USA Chant! Lana tells them to shut up, but doesn’t scream it for once, she goes on to talk about how our president is a sissy, and I can’t say I disagree! She talks about we push our “Democracy” onto everybody and we should be the ones getting scaled for our war in Iraq! Swagger and Colter finally make their way to the ring, and Colter grabs a mic once in the ring. Colter was about to tell Lana or as he called her “Natasha” to shut up, Lana slapped him right in the face, and Swagger and Rusev began to brawl, with Swagger getting the upper hand and clotheslining Rusev out of the ring. The crowd is behind The Real American tonight, and once Rusev is back in and the bell rings the match is underway and Swagger takes early control, dominated Rusev with quick strikes and always keeping Rusev on the edge, as he always needs to keep an eye out for The Patriot Lock! Rusev eventually got tired of Swagger attempting to lock it in, he went over to complain to Lana, but Swagger is not waiting as he goes after Rusev and repeatedly tosses him face first into the ring apron. Jack tossing him back into the ring and runs at Rusev once he is back in the ring and lands a splash, but Jack took his eye of Rusev for one moment and The Bulgarian Brute followed him to the ropes and hit a splash off his own and followed up with a fall away slam! Rusev finally gained control of this match keeping Swagger grounded for quite a while in a headlock, Jack Swagger used the WWE Universe to try and break out, but Rusev kept it locked in! Rusev continued to remain in control eventually tossing Swagger from the ring. Zeb kept cheering Jack on to get onto the apron, but every time Swagger got up, Rusev hit him down. Swagger eventually used the blows as motivation to keep going and eventually ducked one of Rusev’s punches and hitting a hangman on the ropes. Swagger gets back in the match hitting a running splash and following with a Big Boot the sets Rusev up for The Swagger Bomb, but Jack only gets a two count! Swagger continues to control Rusev, hitting a huge slam on him but one again only for a near fall! Rusev and Swagger began to go back and forth back Jack always stayed one step ahead of Rusev countering almost every move The Russian Hero threw at him, but Rusev caught Swagger off with one stiff kick to the chest as Swagger was entering the ring and things turned around for Rusev. Rusev waited for Swagger to get to his feet and went for The Super Kick but Swagger caught the foot and locked The Patriot Lock in on Rusev! Rusev struggled to get out of the move and when he was close to the ropes, Swagger pulled him away, but finally Rusev was able to grab the ropes and pull himself out of the ring while Swagger ignored the ref’s count and continued to keep The Patriot lock, locked in after the rope break! Rusev made it to his feet on the outside of the ring, but only for mere moments as Jack Swagger follows him out and drops a forearm to the ankle of Rusev! Jack Swagger once again locks in The Patriot Lock, this time on the outside of the ring. Rusev tries to fight out of the move, grabbing the steel steps and flipping forward sending Jack Swagger face first HARD into the steel post, knocking The Real American out! Rusev makes it back into the ring at the count of 9 and Swagger is counted out!

Winner by Count Out – Rusev

Grade – B+, After the match Zeb Colter and the doctors are checking on Swagger while Rusev celebrates in the ring. Lana gives Rusev the orders to crush, and Rusev goes outside to get Swagger, and back in the ring he locks in The Accolade on a knocked out Jack Swagger until Lana gives him the order to stop! From what I’ve hear this was supposed to be a quick feud for Rusev who was supposed to easily squash Swagger, but the WWE Universe reacted so well that WWE had no choice but to give it the proper time it deserved! Tonight Jack Swagger proved he can achieve the face status, I have never heard a crowd chant Swagger’s name before tonight, everybody in that arena was behind him and so was I! Rusev barley wins this one, but when you really look at it, did Rusev really beat Swagger tonight? I get that feeling we are going to see Swagger get his revenge on Rusev at Summer Slam, and maybe if a certain Hall of Famer who goes by the name of Hulk Hogan could be in his corner? It would be cool, but I’m not sure I want Swagger to be the first to beat Rusev, I fear that if you stop Rusev’s power to earlier that he is going to flop, and Is still feel it’s too early. I doubt Hogan could, but if he was able to get locked in the Accolade by Rusev, that would make him the biggest heel on the roster! I’m excited to see what’s next; because I’m positive it’s not over yet!

Goldust & Stardust Video

Stardust is being shown somewhere backstage. He seems to be talking to himself, sort of like that goblin from Lord of the Rings. He talks about seeing something but not being able to have it our touch it. Goldust goes in and whatever it is Stardust sees Goldust calls it The Cosmic Key! I can only assume the Cosmic Key is the Tag Team Championships. They both do their normal things (if that’s what you call normal I guess) to end the video.

Seth Rollins Segment

Seth Rollins makes his way to the ring, he grabs a mic but before he can talk the universe chants “You Sold Out!” Rollins proceeds to tell us that he wants to be announced as the winner of the match between him and Dean Ambrose that was supposed to take place earlier tonight. They do as he says and he makes his way to the back, but Dean Ambrose has made his way back into the arena and he brawls with Rollins through the crowd, around the announce table. It took security, a bunch of former wrestlers and even The COO Triple H himself to separate these two. Eventually Ambrose was taken away while The Game rose Rollins arm in victory!

Bray Wyatt W/The Wyatt Family vs. Chris Jericho

Wyatt and his family make their way to the ring first; Bray is sporting a shiner from his collision with Ric Flair’s Chop at a live event. For the first time I believe Wyatt is being booed by the Pro Jericho crowd! Next out is Chris Jericho who on his way down to the ring threw Wyatt’s chair back. Once the bell rings, Wyatt takes early control, throwing Jericho around and staying one step ahead of him. Jericho tried to fight back, but everything he did, Wyatt laughed at! And anytime Jericho tried to get something in Wyatt would counter with a huge elbow! Chris Jericho finally got Wyatt in the corner and begins to land some chops that seemed to have hurt Wyatt! Jericho wrestled Wyatt to the floor and went for a Walls of Jericho, but Eric Rowan distracts the ref, while Luke Harper distracts Jericho, allowing Wyatt to not only get to his feet, but hit a huge clothesline on Jericho! Bray continues to control the match until Jericho hits a dropkick that sends Wyatt to the apron, Jericho follows up with his signature Triangle Dropkick that sends Bray off the apron to the outside of the ring. Jericho than climbs to the top turnbuckle and does a diving cross body on the outside to take out the entire Wyatt Family. Jericho tosses Wyatt in and tries to get in himself, but Luke Harper grabbed on to his ankle, this led to the ref ejected both Harper and Rowan from ringside leaving it to just Wyatt and Jericho! Jericho still too distracted by the departure of the Wyatt Family, that he didn’t see Bray coming up from behind to hit him off the apron and send him right into a cameraman! Wyatt follows Jericho to the outside of the ring and continues the beat down out there before he tosses him back in the ring. Wyatt maintained control back inside tossing Jericho around and taking him out with knock out blows! Jericho tried to fight back and when Wyatt tosses him into a turnbuckle Jericho moved out of the way in time, and Wyatt went shoulder first into the steel post. Jericho than targeted that same shoulder with many shoulder tackles before taking him down with a diving axe handle! Wyatt is down and Jericho now takes control for a moment until Wyatt lift Jericho up and then slams his gut right down onto his knee! Wyatt goes for the running back splash, but Jericho got his knees up and then takes control yet again, fire at Wyatt with chops, and catching Wyatt off guard with an enzguri that takes Bray down. Jericho covers Bray but only for a two. Chris Jericho climbs to the top of the turnbuckle, but Wyatt is there to take him down. Bray maintains control over the match with Jericho getting little offense in. The Eater of Worlds strikes Jericho with many stiff strikes and throwing his weight around as well. Jericho did fight back getting a brief moment where he turned things around, even hitting his signature bulldog , but as he went for the lionsault Wyatt got his knees up and Jericho fell right into them. The ref starts to count as both superstars are down, around the count of 5 Bray forced himself up into The Spider Walk position to get up. He ran at Jericho when he caught up, but Jericho countered and Bray hit his head on the bottom turnbuckle. Jericho drags Bray away for a 1 count the as broken up because of a rope break. Jericho takes control of the match, but Wyatt countered early and went for Sister Abagail, Jericho countered and attempted to lock in The Walls of Jericho, but Wyatt kicked him off and ducked Jericho’s clothesline and followed up with a huge forearm! Wyatt covers Jericho but only for a 2. Wyatt wanders around the ring, thinking about his next move and as he turns around Jericho, out of nowhere, hits a Codebreaker and covers Wyatt for the three!

Winner – Chris Jericho

Grade – B+, I feel many people are going to rate this match higher just because Jericho was in, but I’m not going to lie, it wasn’t as good as I hoped! It wasn’t a bad match at all! But I was expecting this to be on the same level as The Usos vs. The Wyatts earlier, but it wasn’t to be, but like I said it was still a great match. Wyatt seemed different here tonight, and no it wasn’t just is black eye! He seemed more focused and aggressive towards Jericho. Yea, he did laugh at some points and still did his spider crawl, but it just felt like a different Wyatt to me. I feel like there is more to this story, and I’m sure we will hear the rest of it the following weeks to come. I can’t imagine Jericho and Wyatt to be done with each other yet!

Seth Rollins Segment

Rollins is seen with security walking out of the arena into the parking lot. Rollins tell the security he doesn’t need them, and they leave. Rollins continues to walk to his car, but I guess he heard something and began to look around. Ambrose came out of the trunk of Rollins car and went to hit him with a steel pipe. Rollins ducked and ran from Ambrose, but Dean caught up to him and the two battled on top of the car until the both fell of an opposite sides. Rollins quickly got in his car and drove off. My only question here is why was Seth Rollins leaving? What happened to Plan B!?

20 Man Battle Royal for the Intercontinental Championship

Big E vs. Alberto Del Rio vs. Cesaro vs. R-Truth vs. Ryback vs. Curtis Axel vs. Zack Ryder vs. Titus O’Neil vs. Damien Sandow vs. Heath Slater vs. Diego vs. Sin Cara vs. Xavier Woods vs. The Great Khali vs. Kofi Kingston vs. Bo Dallas vs. Dolph Ziggler vs. The Miz vs. United States Champion, Sheamus

Before the match begins the former champion, Bad News Barrett comes out and informs everyone in the ring they all have the honor of becoming the new Intercontinental Champion, but who also informs the of some Bad News and states their demise will come from a Bull Hammer courtesy from him! The match begins and everybody goes after Khali immediately, The Punjabi Playboy tosses them all aside and then delivers chops to everyone in sight. Khali grabs Xavier Woods and tosses him out of the ring.

Xavier Woods eliminated.

And then Khali did the same to Zack Ryder.

Zack Ryder eliminated.

Titus O’ Neil runs at Khali and hits him with a splash; he gets a couple of shots in before moving out of the way of an Incoming Brogue Kick from the U.S Champ Sheamus! Sheamus connects with Khali and everyone once again works together to eliminate The Great Khali.

The Great Khali eliminated.

Cesaro is close to eliminate Ziggler while everyone else continues to brawl. Bo Dallas tosses Sin Cara over the rope, an went to eliminate him but Sin Cara caught him off guard with a stiff kick, meanwhile Ryback has taken over for Cesaro, and now he is trying to eliminate Ziggler. Sin Cara tries to leap over the rope to get back in but Bo Dallas is right there to push him back out.

Sin Cara eliminated.

Superstars all continue to brawl Cesaro once again tried to eliminate Ziggler, while Diego came really close to eliminated Heath Slater, I also think I saw in the background Big E try and eliminate Bo Dallas, but it wasn’t until Ziggler went over the ropes and barley hung on that things began to get more exciting, as not only did Ziggler barley hang on but I also saw The Miz trying to stay out of sight as he waited on the outside of the ring. Meanwhile Curtis Axel just tossed R-Truth over the ropes and onto the floor!

R-Truth eliminated.

And shortly after R-Truth’s elimination, Curtis Axel was tosses over by his own tag team partner, Ryback!

Curtis Axel eliminated.

Axel was obviously upset that his partner threw him over; Ryback just kind of shrugged it off. Over in one of the corners Alberto Del Rio and The U.S Champ are going at it, while Diego battles Damien Sandow and eventually eliminates him!

Damien Sandow eliminated.

Ryback tries to sneak behind Diego and toss him over, but Diego manages to avoid elimination and now tries to eliminate The Big Guy. After taking a couple of chops Ryback lifts Diego up and tosses him out of the ring.

Diego eliminated.

Ryback and Sheamus proceeded to beat down on everyone in the ring until they were the last two standing, the two brutes began to battle back and forth and Ryback almost eliminated The U.S Champ as he lifted him onto his shoulders into the power bomb position, but Sheamus slid out and connected with a Brogue Kick that sent Ryback out of the ring.

Ryback eliminated.

The Miz avoided being seen again, as he slid into the ring and tried to eliminate Sheamus from behind, but The Celtic Warrior fought him off, and Ziggler came up from behind to hit a Zig Zag on Miz. Miz rolled out of the ring and everyone continued to brawl. Titus O’ Neil got to show off as he lifted Sheamus up and hit him with a rib breaker twice, before tossing the U.S Champ aside. O’Neil decided to take a second to taunt and do his signature bark, a second Bo Dallas took advantage of as he ran up behind and hit O’Neil with a running knee to send him out of the ring!

Titus O’Neil eliminated.

Bo Dallas took time to celebrate around the ring, a celebration that was ended by Cesaro. Cesaro than began to brawl with Kofi Kingston. Cesaro was in a dangerous are on the outside apron when he ducked a Trouble in Paradise from Kofi. Cesaro than went to toss Kofi over the ropes, but Kofi hung on by Cesaro’s legs, until Cesaro pulled himself and Kofi in. Cesaro than stood up and took a drop kick from Kingston. Del Rio hits a nice back breaker on Ziggler, as Big E, Sheamus and one other superstar gang up on Heath Slater. Del Rio is on the outside apron and is trying to battle Ziggler off and is doing a great job at it, until Ziggler hits his signature DDT on Del Rio that bounces him off the ropes and out of the ring.

Alberto Del Rio eliminated.

Miz once again sneaks in and tries to toss Ziggler out, but Dolph hangs on and Sheamus lifts Miz up onto his shoulder, but Miz slides down and gets hit with a huge tackle from Big E that sends Miz through the second rope and not eliminating him. Cesaro and Big E now battle trying to eliminate each other, Cesaro ended up getting the upper hand when he hit a belly to belly near the ropes, tossing Big E out!

Big E eliminated.

Kofi Kingston ran at Cesaro tossed Kofi over the ropes, but Kingston hung on. Cesaro swung at Kingston, and Kofi lept off and his buddy Big E was there to catch him, saving Kofi from elimination. Kofi tried to pull Cesaro out, while on the shoulders of Big E, but Cesaro battled out and kicked Big E in the face before suplexing Kingston back in the ring. Kofi ran out Cesaro, but The Swiss Superman put his boot up and Kofi ran right into it.  Cesaro now back in the ring tries to eliminate Kingston, but Kofi hooks his feet under Cesaro arms and tries to pull him out, Cesaro pulls Kofi back up and thumps his eye before finally eliminating him!

Kofi Kingston eliminated.

Dolph Ziggler tries to dropkick Sheamus from behind, but The U.S Champ moves and Ziggler connects with Bo and sends him out of the ring.

Bo Dallas eliminated.

The only two superstars left in the ring are Dolph Ziggler and The U.S Champion Sheamus. These two went back in forth, Dolph attempted a fame-asser that was botched, but he beautifully recovers into a new move. Sheamus fired back with heavy blows, and The Celtic Warrior almost eliminated Ziggler when he tossed him over but Ziggler would not stay down. Sheamus went for a Brogue Kick again, but Ziggler pulled the rope and Sheamus went over the ropes, but gets hung up. Sheamus gets off the ropes, but Ziggler is there and hits him with a dropkick and Sheamus pulls a Shawn Michaels moment as only one of his feet touched the floor. Sheamus goes for the battering ram, but Ziggler lands a super kick on Sheamus and The U.S Champ falls backwards to the ground.

Sheamus eliminated.

Ziggler begins to celebrate, but The Miz comes in (who was on the outside of the ring the whole time) and tosses Ziggler over to win the battle royal!

Winner & New Intercontinental Champion – The Miz

Grade – B+, This battle royal was heavily hyped, and there were quite a few favorites to win, and we got so many highlights from it. Seeing The Miz waiting on the outside didn’t guarantee his victory, but it made it more likely. It honestly makes sense to give the title to The Miz, who has been doing well with his new character now WWE could either choose to do a Unification match between The Miz and Sheamus at Summer Slam or maybe Miz defends against Ziggler, the man he cheated out of a victory tonight. Either way I hope Miz’s reign keeps the prestige of The IC title going!

WWE World Heavyweight Championship/Fatal Four Way Match

Randy Orton vs. Roman Reigns vs. Kane. John Cena (c)

A video package is shown going to events that led up to this match, We saw the announcement of it, how much Orton and Kane trust each other and of course the rise of Roman Reigns! All four superstars make their way to the ring and Justin Roberts does the introductions and this match us underway! Cena and Orton go to the outside were Orton makes easy work of Cena and tosses him into the steel steps, while Roman Reigns is beating down on Kane in the turnbuckle until Randy Orton comes in and pulls Reigns away. Roman begins to take the fight to Orton and it doesn’t take long for Orton and Kane to begin to work together on Reigns. Cena tried to get back into the ring at one point, but Kane just knocked him right off the apron, but providing enough of a distracting of Roman Reigns to climb to the top turnbuckle and jump off to connect flying clotheslines on both Kane and Orton. Roman started to battle The Devils Favorite Demon, but once again The double team comes into play and Orton covers Roman as Kane watches over to make sure Cena doesn’t come in. Reigns kicks out early and now Cena is in the ring, but it doesn’t take long for the team of Orton and Kane to take down the champion. Orton and Kane focus on Cena before Kane goes out of the ring to take of Roman, meanwhile back in the ring Cena is now taking it to Orton and Kane comes in and makes the save. We see this happen a lot for next couple of minutes with Orton and Kane beating up on Cena and whenever Reigns came in Kane kicked him out, but whenever Kane left Orton needed help! Finally Reigns got rid of Kane on the outside and Cena began to take it to Orton until Orton was tossed out of the ring, leaving just Roman Reigns and The WWE World Heavyweight Champion John Cena alone, and the stare down begins, but is interrupted to soon as Kane and Orton come in again to take down the two. Orton battled Cena on the outside while Kane covered Reigns inside but only for a two. Orton to notice and began to question why Kane would cover for the win, when he is supposed to make sure he won! The two eventually had it out when Kane had enough of Orton and the two began to brawl. Kane perched Orton on top of the turnbuckle and it looked like he was going to go for a Superplex but instead Cena and Reigns grabs Kane’s leg and hit both Kane and Orton with a Super Power Bomb! For the second time Roman Reigns and John Cena have a stare down, just to get interrupted by Kane sitting up. The two superstars beat down on Kane while Orton sneaks in a takes out Reigns with a back breaker, and then takes Cena out. Orton goes to cover Roman, but Kane comes in and breaks up the pin and begins to battle with Orton again, before Cena hits him with an Attitude Adjustment. Orton and Cena begin to battle, Orton went for his signature backbreaker, but Cena countered into an STF and tried to get Orton to tap out, and just when Orton was about to tap, Roman Reigns caught his arm and pulled Orton out of the ring and then tossed him over the announce table. Reigns got in the ring and the third stare down from Reigns and Cena but this time they begin to brawl! Roman gets the advantage and is looking to hit The Superman Punch, but Cena avoided and hit Reigns with a side slam but only for two. Once back to their feet Reigns ducks a clothesline from Cena and connects with The Superman Punch that sets Cena up for The Spear. Reigns waits for Cena to get to his feet before running at him and connecting with The Spear. Roman Reigns covers Cena and Kane barley saves the match. Reigns begins to brawl with Kane in the corner and connected with The Superman Punch onto Kane, and Kane falls onto the ropes. Reigns leaves the ring and dropkicks Cena while running around the ring, next on his list was Randy Orton who was on the announce table and last was The Devil’s Favorite Demon! Roman takes at Orton and spears him through the barricade! Roman Reigns makes his way back in the ring and connects with The Spear on Kane and covers him for the win, but Cena breaks it up! Cena covers Kane, but Reigns breaks it up. Reigns tries to toss Cena out, but John Cena counters Roman Reigns and tosses him out of the ring before hitting Kane with The Attitude Adjustment, Cena covers Kane, but Reigns breaks it up and then covers Kane, but Cena breaks it up and then hits Reigns with The Attitude Adjustment for the win, but Kane breaks it up this time, and covers Reigns until Cena breaks it up. Roman Reigns is back up and connects with a Spear to Kane and covers him to win, but Orton breaks up the pin and hits Reigns with an RKO, but before he can pin someone Cena lifts Orton onto his shoulders and hits The Attitude Adjustment to Orton onto Kane. Cena covers Kane for the win!

Winner & Still WWE World Heavyweight Champion – John Cena

Grade, A-, I think most of us already knew that Cena was walking away as champ tonight, since it was practically leaked that he would defend his title against Brock Lesnar at Summer Slam, but WWE did a good job at getting everyone else to pay attention to something, or should I say someone else. Everybody was watching Roman Reigns tonight, to see if he can hang with the big dogs, and I’ll say he did good, but a Fatal Four Way is still able to hide the things he is not good at, which is great, but Reigns still hasn’t proven If he can go in a long singles match where its only him and his opponent. We already know Cena will probably face Lesnar. There has been rumors flying around of Reigns vs. Triple H, but I think that’s a match more worthy of WrestleMania! I would prefer to see Orton take on Reigns, but maybe there is something between him and Kane. I don’t know what’s going to happen next, all I know is big things are in store for Roman Reigns!

 

Superstars of the Night – The Usos

I found tonight Superstar of night rather hard. Roman Reigns did good, but not amazing, Jericho did win, but it an alright match and it’s not like received much of a reaction after he won and sadly Dean Ambrose did not get to compete, but that opening match between The Usos and The Wyatts was amazing! A Match of the Year nominee if you ask me! What really shocked me is The Usos coming away with the win, I would of bet money that The Wyatts walked out as champ, I’m glad I didn’t! Uso sent a message out to every team tonight. You want some come get some!

Extreme Rules Pre-Show

WeeLC Match

Hornswoggle vs. El Torito

It is know time for our WeeLC match, and before anyone is introduced we have some special people out there. We have a midget referee and a midget ring announcer! Along with our new ref and announcer we have a new announce team! joining JBl, Cole and The King on commentary tonight is Micro Cole, JBElf and Jerry “The King” Smaller! Out first is Los Matadores and El Torito, after they come out Three Man Band and Hornswoggle make their way to the ring. The bell rings and the two begin to swing at each other! Torito gets in control by taking Swoggle down with a Hurricarana, and shortly after we are treated with a commercial break, but once we are back we see The Matadores and 3MB trading blows, but the band is able to take them out, and Torito was all by himself as Swoggle began to beat down on him! We saw Swoggle call the shots as he had 3MB set up a Mini Table and ladder! He also had Heath Slater hold Torito still has he swung at him with the mini steel chair, but Torito ducked and the chair connected with Slater’s gut and sent him off the apron into a bunch of tables! McIntyre and Mahal forced Torito to the top of the ladder, as Hornswoggle looked to toss him off the mini ladder through the mini tables, but Los Matadores got back up and lifted Jinder up onto their shoulders as Torito smashed Swoggle’s face into the ladder and jumped over him onto Jinder and took him, Mahal, and Los Matadores down. All 4 men went through table and ladders! Hornswoggle was not down with Torito as he had Drew pick him up and put him on a regular table. He than demanded McIntyre the jump to the outside onto Torito. As Drew jumped over the ropes, Torito moved out of the way and Drew went through the table by himself. Torito than grabbed a mini steel chair and went to hit Slater, but accidentally hit Hornswoggle! He tan unfolded the chair and slammed Slater’s face into it! To end the match El Torito did a springboard leap of the ring ropes, onto Hornswoggle sending him through a mini table to pick on the win!

Winner – El Torito

Rating – 6\10: A lot of people were not looking forward to this match, but I actually was! I looked at it as something different. Down in Mexico where El Torito hails from, midget wrestling is actually a pretty big thing down there, and El Torito was one of the most popular stars! Maybe WWE can have their own midget division, or maybe not! Despite the fact that Torito and Hornswoggle put on an entertaining match, the WWE still made a joke out of it! and while it was amusing! I do not want a Midget Division, if its always going to be a joke! I do think it was a clever idea to get Los Matadores and 3MB involved in the match as well! I really enjoyed this match, and hope maybe we get to see more of this from the WWE!

Extreme Rules!

Rob Van Dam vs. Cesaro W/Paul Heyman vs. Jack Swagger W/Zeb Colter

We open up the official show with an Elimination Triple Threat Match! At Wrestlemania 30 Cesaro won the Andre the Giant Battle Royal and ended his partner ship with Zeb Colter and Jack Swagger. The night after Mania Cesaro, was no longer a Zeb Colter guy, he became a Paul Heyman guy!  All three of these superstars were involved in the tournament for the Number One Contendership for the Intercontinental Championship! Van Dam beat Cesaro in the tourney and declined an offer from Zeb Colter. Swagger and Cesaro cost Van Dam his match against Wade Barrett in the Intercontinental Title Tourney! And now the three finally get their hands on each other! First out was Van Dam to a nice crowd reaction and than was Swagger and Colter and finally Heyman! Heyman speaks on the mic before he introduces Cesaro! Heyman speaks how WWE got it right and had one night dedicated to Extreme! The crowd begins to chant ECW at Heyman, Heyman began to talk about how glad he is that he will always be remembered, and as it seemed like he was going to say ECW, he quickly turns it around by saying he will always be remembered for Brock Lesnar, his client ending The Undertaker’s undefeated streak at Wrestlemania, he tan introduces Cesaro and the two head down to the ring together. Of course this being a triple threat match it means all three men will be in the ring at the same time. It appeared that The former Real Americans were going to work together early on against Van Dam, but RVD being the more experienced of the two was able to stay in control of the match despite the early team up. Swagger and Cesaro finally started to take it to Van Dam together, but that did not last to long as the former partners took it to each other! We saw all three men hit each other with many hard hitting moves. At one point Van Dam hit Cesaro with a sunset flip and Cesaro landed on top of Swagger! Cesaro manged to suplex Suplex Swagger back into the ring from the Ring Apron, and after Swagger hit the canvas RVD flew and hit Jack with a Five Star Frog Splash to eliminate him from the match!

RVD eliminates Jack Swagger via pin fall

With Jack Swagger eliminated, this Triple Threat match, becomes a one on one match! We have seen these two face off before during The Intercontinental Championship Tournament! Van Dam was able to pick up the victory over Cesaro that night, and admittedly they did not put on a good match that night! Tonight they look to out do their previous match! Both superstars have already taken damage, but they were holding nothing back! Van Dam pulled out his Extreme side tonight. We saw Van Dam hit classic moves such as The Spinning Leg Drop from the ring apron to the outside to Cesaro who was hanging over the barricade, we saw Van Dam pull out an impressive Rolling Thunder, it definitely had to be the best one I’ve seen from him! Cesaro took the damage, but he also dished it out to Van Dam! At one point Van Dam pulled out a Trash Can and looked to use it against Cesaro, but The Swiss Superman his a Baseball slide right into the Trash Can and sent it right into the gut of RVD! The Trash Can played a part at the end of the match. RVD threw it at Cesaro, and he was able to catch it but this set him up for the Van Damninator! This set Cesaro up for a Five Star Frog Splash! RVD set the Trash Can on top of Cesaro and went for the Frog Splash, but Cesaro moved out of the way, but left the weapon there and Van Dam landed right on top of it! Cesaro forced Van Dam up to his feet and hit The Neutralizer on top of the Trash Can to win the match by pin fall!

Winner – Cesaro

Rating – 8\10: What an opening match! All three men looked great here tonight! Sadly Swagger was the first one to go, and me being a fan of Swagger and Colter it sucks to see him go first, but it took to hard hitting moves to take him out! Cesaro and Van Dam made everyone forget about their sloppy match on Raw a few weeks ago with their brief one on one match! I was also glad to see RVD pull out the Extreme! With the PPV being called Extreme Rules and RVD being the king of Extreme, it just made sense! even if it was just a Trash Can! A great opening match here, but I’m a little worried for all three men! I don’t see where they go from here. I’m sure WWE will come up with something for Cesaro, but as for RVD and Swagger, I expect them to be in limbo for awhile!

Backstage Segment W/ Daniel Bryan (c) & Stephanie McMahon

We see backstage the Doctor is checking on Bryan, when Steph comes in and ask for a minute alone with Bryan. Mrs. McMahon explains that she can’t control Kane, and she is worried for Bryan and tells him there is away out of it, and he Bryan needs to do is Vacate the WWE World Heavyweight Championship! Bryan tells Steph to get out and Steph responds by telling Bryan, after tonight he won’t be WWE World Champion, but he will be Kane’s Bitch!

Alexander Rusev W/Lana vs. R-Truth & Xavier Woods

Lana comes out first and states she is dedicating this match to Vladimir Putin! Rusev comes out next and the two walk down to the ring! Out next is the team of Woods & R-Truth! Usually Truth & Woods are having fun and rapping when they come down the ring, but as Truth said on the mic, there will be no rapping tonight and things are getting serious! Before the match even begun, before both men could get into the ring, Rusev hit Woods with a Super Kick sending him out of the ring and also took Truth off the apron as well! Rusev went outside of the ring and began to beat down on Woods. Rusev hit Woods with a HUGE slam outside of the ring, and before the match could even begin, Rusev already took Woods out! The match finally began when Truth told the ref he was fine, and the ref was able to hold Rusev back long enough, but the second the bell rang, Rusev went right after Truth and beat him down. Truth did mange to fight back, and even took Rusev down. For the first time in Rusev’s career he was almost defeated! Lana almost had a fit when that happened! but after that pin happened it was over for Truth! Rusev began to beat down on Truth again! The final moments of the match happened when Rusev hit Truth with a HUGE slam! and followed up with The Accolade! to force R-Truth to tap out!

Winner – Alexander Rusev

Rating – 6\10: I’m not going to lie! I wasn’t even remotely excited for this match! It was a handicap match, that mimicked Ryback of early last year! but this wasn’t a one sided match and it wasn’t even a handicap match! I thought it was clever and really interesting that Rusev took Woods out before the match could even begin! I’m also glad that it wasn’t one sided, the fact that Truth got some offense in as well and even piked up a two count on him, it really added to the match! Rusev should of won here and he did! The Bulgarian Brute continues his dominance tonight! I’m still excited to see where his career goes! Before I move on though, I do wanna talk briefly about Xavier Woods! Just like Rusev, Woods is still in his rookie year in the WWE, and came over from NXT not to long ago! Its sad to see how far Woods has fallen already, and I really hope things do turn around for him, because Woods could be a great mid card, or tag team if you just let him!

Backstage Interview W/ Evolution 

Renee Young is backstage with all three members of Evolution. She asks them about their match against The Shield later tonight, and what they have done to prepare. Triple H answers by saying the Shield believe that Evolution’s egos is what will cost them the match. The Game admits that all three of them have massive egos before he tells us that they are well deserves. He than goes around and builds up both Batista and Orton before asking Young is she knows why he is called The Cerebral Assassin, she ask why and Triple H responds by telling her that she will find out tonight. Than Orton gets on the mic and states Triple H was right when he said you either adapt or perish, and tonight The Shield will perish and you can believe that! The Interview ends when all three mock The Shield by putting their fist together in the center just like their opponents do!

WWE Intercontinental Championship Match

Big E (c) vs. Bad News Barrett

WWE did something right with The Intercontinental Championship! Along with the United States Championship, The IC title has been losing it’s prestige over the years! but when WWE announced the Number One Contenders Tournament! Barrett did not have any momentum, but that all changed when he finally made his return to the ring and went on to defeat Dolph Ziggler, Sheamus and RVD to win the tournament! He know faces Big E, a man who the WWE Universe at one point thought could bring the prestige back to the title, but sadly he ended up being like all the rest! Barrett came down first and told the Universe that he had some bad news! He talked about this new disease in America and stated we would all soon fall to it, just like Big E would fall to him tonight! Big E was out next and he was Booed, and not by a few people! Majority of the Universe booed Big E tonight! Even throughout the match. There wasn’t to many memorable moments in this match up, but it was still good! These two men went out there and put on a hard hitting battle! We saw Big E hit many of his hard hitting strikes and almost put away Barrett with The Big Ending, but Barrett manged to kick out! Bad News as well dished out his fair share of offense as well! We saw Barrett hit Big E with many of his strikes as well as his old finishing move, Waste Land, but Big E managed to kick out! It looked like Bad News was about to win as he went for The Bull Hammer, but Big E moved out of the way and ran against the ropes, and looked like he was ready to take Barrett down, but Bad News jumped into the air and hit The Bull Hammer to knock Big E out and pick up a three count and his fourth Intercontinental Championship!

Winner & New Champion – Bad News Barrett

Rating – 7\10: It’s great too see Barrett back in the ring, and he is really over with The Universe! Instead of cheering the fan favorite, Big E, the universe chose to Boo him and cheer for The Heel, Wade Barrett! Even though there wasn’t many highlights of the match, that does not take away from this match! These two still went out there and put on a great match! and now the Bad News Barrett is the new Champ, I’ll be interested to see if the title is now elevated! I hope we do get to see a feud between these two! I think these two can elevate each other, and if Barrett continues to stay and become more popular with The Universe! He may find himself in the main event after he drops the strap!

Evolution (Triple H, Randy Orton & Batista)  vs. The Shield (Roman Reigns, Dean Ambrose (c) & Seth Rollins)

Before they come out we are shown a video package for this match. The Video highlighted The Shield’s dominance, the re birth of Evolution and of course the rivalry between the two team! The Video was really well down and really got me even more excited for this match! First out is Evolution, and I don’t think Batista got the memo as both Orton and HHH wore Black to the ring, but Batista wore Red! Next out is The Shield, and they don’t take their time as they rushed to the ring. Before the match began, the two teams began to brawl, and The Shield tossed each member of Evolution out of the ring! The match finally began and Seth Rollins and Triple H started out first! In the early parts of the match we saw both teams take it to each other! both teams had their moments of dominance! Evolution beat down on The Shield, The Shield beat down on Evolution! Once we starting getting into the mid match, is when things began to break down! We saw the teams brawl outside of the ring, Reigns attempted to spear Triple H, but The Game moved out the way and Reigns went right into the steel steps! Evolution began to take control over the match, as they singled out Ambrose and took turns beating down on him, Ambrose did mange to tag in Rollins, but that did not change anything as Evolution still took turns beating down on Rollins. Things began to break down though when The Shield started getting back into the match! They did more daring moves and we saw both teams trade blows and honestly it just felt like a brawl! All three members of The Shield were in the ring together and they lifted Batista up and hit him with The Triple Threat Power Bomb! Ambrose went on the outside and began to brawl with Randy Orton, while Rollins attempted to  land a suicide dive onto The Game, but HHH moved out of the way and Rollins went into the barricade! Triple H got into the ring, and lifted Reigns up and hit him with The Pedigree! Triple tried to roll Batista over Reigns, but Ambrose raced into the ring and began to brawl with Triple H and the two went over the announce table, while this is happened Reigns managed to kick out of the pin, but Orton quickly got back in the ring and hit Reigns with an RKO! Rollins got back in and took Orton outside of the ring! Rollins and Orton battles on the outside and Triple H joined in! Orton and HHH beat down on Rollins in the crowd, but Ambrose goes running across the announce table and jumped onto both Triple H and Orton! All Four men battled outside in the crowd! At one point Orton and The Game tossed Ambrose down a set of steel stairs, and the two continued to beat down on Ambrose, until Rollins jumped for the row above them and landed on all three men! Both Batista and Reigns are back up in the ring and we see the two begin to fight! Roman managed to hit Batista with The Superman Punch. Reigns let out his primal scream and ran full force at Batista to hit him with his version of The Spear to pick up the three count for his team!

Winners – The Shield

Rating – 9\10: The Match of the Night! All six of these men went out their and contributed to this match! Both teams dominated at some point and all men looked great here tonight! and I have to say this. My two favorite wrestlers are Triple H and Dean Ambrose! I have been a huge fan of The Game ever since his first return from injury back in 2001, and I have been following Dean Ambrose for his entire career, even before he was hired by WWE and went by the name Jon Moxly! So seeing those two fight for a few moments was just a dream come true for me! There were many great highlights in this match, and I’m sure it will be nominated for Match of the Year! but now that The Shield won, is it over? I doubt it, because I’m sure Triple, Batista and Orton aren’t to happy about losing!

Steel Cage Mach

Bray Wyatt W/The Wyatt Family vs. John Cena

Before the match starts we are shown a video package for this match. The Video highlighted Bray Wyatt! We saw highlights from Wyatt’s and Cena’s match from Wrestlemania 30! and we were also treated to the highlights leading up to this event. Bray was the main focus, as I don’t believe we once saw Cena get the advantage in this build up! The video ended with Bray and the creepy kids from this past Monday on Raw singing “He’s Got the Whole World, In His Hands.” Out first was John Cena who received his mixed reaction as usual, than it was Bray and company! Both superstars are surrounded by the Steel Cage and they begin to take it to each other! For the in ring action, there was not many memorable spots! Honestly this match was mostly Cena! We watch John beat down on Wyatt and than attempt to leave the Steel Structure, but of course both Eric Rowan and Like Harper made sure Cena could not escape! We saw Rowan and Harper stand below Cena, climb up the cage and force him back in and even test their strength against Cena as he tried to escape from the door! At one point early on we even got to see a double team! Wyatt held Cena against the Steel Cage, as Rowan ran and jumped into the part of the cage Cena was against!  Cena looked like he was going to win many times, especially when he locked in the STF, but his mistakes came back to haunt him as Luke Harper (who he pulled inside the cage earlier in the match) broke up the hold! Cena did mange to take out each member of The Wyatt Family, and looked like he was about to win by walking out of the door, but the lights went off and we here He’s Got the Whole World playing over the speakers in a distorted voice. Once the lights come on we see a young boy standing in front of Cena  singing the same song in the same voice. Wyatt takes advantage of this as he grabs Cena and pulls him back in the hit Sister Abigail! Bray than walks out of the door to win the match!

Winner – Bray Wyatt

Rating – 6\10: The rivalry between these two have been great, I just wish the ring work was better. I’m not saying both of their matches were bad, but for a rivalry like this, I feel like the matches should of been far better, especially tonight? I was expecting Cena to beat down on Wyatt, but instead we got to see him dominate Bray for the majority of the match and attempt to escape! Seriously that is all I can really remember about the in ring action. I did think it was interesting how Cena’s plan backfired on him. The reason these two were fighting inside the Steel was to keep Harper and Rowan out, but it didn’t work! The ending with that little boy singing was clever and unexpected! Even though Bray won here tonight, it feels like he lost to me! I thought his mission was to bring out the monster in Cena? Tonight he failed to do that! and even though Cena technically won this match many times tonight, Wyatt is the one that comes away with the victory!

WWE Divas Championship Match

Tamina Snuka vs. Paige (c)

WWE finally gives the audience a break! After having two of a three main events take place, we are given the filler match! Paige defends her championship for the first time against Tamina Snuka! Early on Paige used her speed against Tamina as she stayed away from her strength and even outsmarted her several times! Snuka manged to get back in the match as Paige climbed the turnbuckle and got hit with a Super Kick, sending her outside of the ring! Tamina and Paige brawled outside, and at one point The Divas Champ attempted a Hurricarana, but Tamina showed of her strength when she turned the move around on Paige and swung our champion into the barricade! Things began to look bad for our champ as Tamina began to dominate! Paige showed off her resiliency as she kicked out of every pin attempt! Our Champion managed to get back into the match in the late game and even forced Tamina to tap out after she locked in The Scorpion Crosslock!

Winner & Still Divas Champion – Paige

Rating – 5\10: I feel like this match was rushed, and honestly it probably was. I know both Tamina and Paige are way better than what we saw tonight. They put on a fun match, but it could of been so much better! Paige in her PPV debut, still manages to come away with the victory, but I can’t say I’m happy with the way the WWE is handling her!

Backstage Segment W/ The Wyatt Family

Bray tells the Little Johnny AKA the Young Boy who helped him win the Steel Cage Match. Bray brags about how his word will be heard and ask Johnny if he knows what is next. Little Johnny replies by saying “Follow The Buzzards”

WWE World Heavyweight Championship Extreme Rules Match

Kane vs. Daniel Bryan (c)

Before the match begins we are shown a Video Package for this match! The Video highlights The feud between these two and The Monster Side of Kane! We are shown Bryan’s win at Mania, and we are shown the destructive path, that Kane has left behind him ever since he put his mask back on! Out first is our Champion Daniel Bryan, and it we did not have to wait long for Kane to come out or even for this match to begin, because Bryan did not wait for Kane, he met him halfway down the entrance way! The two began to brawl before the match began, and even after the match began! Kane did get the advantage over Bryan as he definitely embraced The Extreme part of this match! Kane went for many dangerous moves on Bryan, including a Tombstone Piledriver on top of the Steel Steps, but lick enough for Bryan he managed to get out! It wasn’t long before these two took it to the backstage, and this is were the match really picked up! Kane really wanted to hurt Bryan tonight. We saw Kane throw what looked like a Laptop at Bryan, Bryan’s luck continued as he not only dodged the laptop, but moved out of the way before it began to spark since Kane threw it into water. The two battled to the parking lot and Kane tossed Bryan on top of a car and even threw at keg at Bryan that went through the windshield, when Bryan managed to move out of the way! Bryan found a Crowbar in the open trunk of another car and knocked Kane out backstage with it. The only way Bryan could win though is in the ring, so he needed to come up with a way to get Kane back to the ring! Bryan rolled Kane onto a wooden base that was on a Forklift! Bryan than started and drove the Forklift to ringside and rose the base as high as he could before dumping Kane back into the ring! Bryan than climbed up the Forklift and hit a jumping headbutt from the top of the Lift! Kane managed to kick out of a close pin, but Daniel managed to lock in The Yes Lock. Kane fought out of the submission hold but crawling out of the ring, The Champion ran at Kane and flew through the ropes to hit a Suicide Diva on Kane, but The Monster caught Bryan in mid air around the through, before he lifted him up and Chokeslamed him through the announce table! While Bryan laid there on the ground, Kane began to set up another table! The Monster than poured Gasoline on the table an lit it on fire! Kane and Bryan fought on the ring apron, Kane tried to Chokeslam Bryan through the flaming table, but Daniel used the ropes like a sling shot to knock Kane off the apron and through the table on fire. Two men quickly used the Fire Extinguishers to put the flames out, Kane stumbled himself back into the ring, but the second he got him Bryan, who was waiting on him ran full force at his opponent and hit him with The Running Knee!

Winner & Still WWE World Heavyweight Champion – Daniel Bryan

Rating – 7\10: Wow! These two went to the extreme! I never thought I would see a Table on Fire in the PG Era of WWE, but we did! This match reminded be a lot of the Hardcore matches we got to see in The Attitude Era! Kane was the perfect choice for Bryan’s first title defense given their history. Former Tag Team Champions together as Team Hell No! Just last year in this same arena they teamed up together to defend their tag titles against Dolph Ziggler and Big E at Wrestlemania 29! and to see them now feuding is just great! The build up for this feud has been slow, but entertaining! I do get the feeling these two are not done with each other, since as Bryan was walking up the entrance way, Kane got up and made flames come up from the ground behind Bryan!

 

Superstar of the Night – Roman Reigns

 

Tonight all three members deserve this award, but it’s The Superstar of the night, not Superstars of the night! The Shield put on the best match tonight against Evolution! We saw Dean save the match many times, and we saw Rollins put his body on the line for the team, but at the end of they day, it was Roman Reigns who hit Batista with The Superman Punch! It was Roman Reigns who hit Batista with The Spear! and it was Roman Reigns who pinned Batista to pick up the win. There is no doubt in my mind that these three men can become big stars in the WWE, and tonight they looked like it! I don’t think the feud between those 6 men is over, but I do think that once The Shield is finished with Evolution that we will see big things from Reigns! Tonight was the first step of many for Roman Reigns!

Wrestlemania 30 – Thank You Taker!

Hello my friends, and welcome to my review of the 30th installment of Wrestlemania! Tonight we have numerous advertised main events such as John Cena vs Bray Wyatt, Daniel Bryan vs. Triple H, The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar and Randy Orton defending his WWE World Heavyweight Championship in the main event against Batista and the winner of the Bryan/HHH Match! I’m excited for this event, so let’s get started!

Pre-Show

WWE Tag Team Title Match!

The Usos (c)  vs. Los Matadores W/ El Torito vs. Rybaxel vs. The Real Americans w/Zeb Colter

The WWE Tag Titles are on the line in a Fatal Four Way Elimination Match! This match was great! I loved every second of it, and it certainly was worthy of a Wrestlemania spot and its a shame its on the Pre Show. Los Matadores was the unexpected team for me here. I know the other three teams are good, but I haven’t seen much from them as a team except for the matches with 3MB. El Torito even got involved in the match as he crossbodied Curtis Axel off the shoulders of The Matatdores into all the other competitors, but after Swagger got a hold of one of the Matadores and locked in his Patriot Lock to force them to tap out.

Los Matadores eliminated via submission

Action picked up as both The Real Americans and Rybaxel dominated over the tag champs, but The Usos fought through it and lasted long enough for Ryback to tag himself into the match and battle The Real Americans. Ryback showed off his strength as he tossed both The Americans around, Ryback was looking to take Cesaro out but Cesaro was able to toss Ryback in the air and catch him with the Uppercut followed by The Neutralizer to eliminated Ryback with the three count!

Rybaxel eliminated via pin fall

The Real Americans and The Usos have a stare down. The Real American put their hands over their hearts and said along with the crowd “We The People!” The Usos responded with their Us-O Chant and the battle was on. These two teams went back in forth in an incredible tag team match. We saw close falls and impressive team work, but The Usos got the upper hand when the tossed Cesaro into Swagger and landed twin super kicks followed by a double splash to retain their championships.

Winners and Still WWE Tag Team Champions – The Usos

 

Rating – 8\10: What an excellent match up. It’s a shame this match was on the pre show, because it deserved to be on the actual Mania card! All four teams went out their and stole the show, and restored my faith in the tag division, but the real thing to talk about here is what happened after the match was over. Swagger frustrated with the loss began to yell at Cesaro and even locked in the Patriot Lock, but after Zeb calmed him down Swagger apologized and extended his hand to Cesaro. Cesaro took the handshake, but turned it into his Cesaro Swing, thus ending The Real Americans! It’s kind of a shame because how well these two worked together, but its obvious Cesaro is over, and its time to push him as a singles star. As for Zeb and Swagger, if they keep Swagger looking as good as he has been, he could still be utilized well, but what I think is the smartest thing to do is to find a replacement for Cesaro and continue with The Real Americans without Cesaro!

The Host Of Wrestlemania

Hulk Hogan comes out to a huge crowd reaction. He gets in the ring and hypes Wrestlemania tonight, and even mistakenly says were in the Silver Dome and not the Super Dome. Hogan went on to saying how anything could happen at Wrestlemania, but he was cut off but the Glass Shattering Music of Stone Cold Steve Austin! The Texas Rattlesnake Stomped down to the ring, and did his usual Turnbuckle stance at each one, and than got into the face of The Immortal Hulk Hogan, and the two had a stare down. I had chills going down my spine at this moment. Austin get on the mic and says “If you want Stone Cold to open a can of whoop ass on Hulk Hogan, than give me a Hell Yea!” The crowd erupted with a HELL YEA! and Austin teased the beat down on Hogan, but ultimately began to tell Hogan how much of in impact he has had in the WWE and much respect he had for him. The two seemed to be done until the music of The Great One played! The Rock headed down to the ring, and this is a true moment right here! Three of the biggest names in WWE History in the ring at the same time! The Rock did his routine and even picked on Hogan for his Silver Dome mistake earlier. He than went on to tell Hogan that if is wasn’t for him telling the kids to say their prayers and eat their vitamins, their would be no boy walking around following Hustle, Loyalty, and Respect. He than started to tell Austin is it wasn’t for him defying the corporation and opening a can of whoop ass on the boss, their would be no Yes Man! Battling The Authority. They all went on to say their catch phrases and than they all shared some beer! Courtly of Stone Cold. I was really hoping to see Austin give Rock and Hogan the stunner or at least the tease of it, but this segment was awesome! I loved every moment of it!

Triple H vs Daniel Bryan

 

The opening match of the night just so happens to be the one with the biggest impact! Now I’ve never been a big Daniel Bryan fan and in fact Triple H is my favorite wrestler, but the video promo for this match was just phenomenal! You get taken through Daniel Bryan’s career and you see just how far he has come and than you see Triple H take it all away and tell him all his work was for nothing! Stephanie was in the ring and she announces Triple H and we are treated with some crazy music and this awesome entrance by The Game as he truly looks the part of The King of Kings tonight! and hearing The Game by Motohead over the speakers again was amazing! Out next is Bryan who comes out to a huge ovation as he and the entire arean chants “YES!” Tonight Triple H and Daniel Bryan stole the show! Daniel Bryan pulled a side out of Triple H we have never seen! These two went out there and put on a classic technical match. They reversed each others moves, got the upper hand over each other and they both beat the hell out of each other! Triple H hit Bryan with heavy knees huge slams and even hit his Pedigree. It looked like it was over but Bryan kicked out! Bryan got himself back into the match and took it to the Game with stiff kicks and great submission holds. Triple H also got in his fair share of submission holds! There were so many false finishes to this match and at times it looked like The Game would win but Bryan landed on his feet after a back suplex and hit Triple H with the running knee for the three!

Winner – Daniel Bryan

Rating -10\10: Tonight Triple H and Daniel Bryan put on a perfect match! They went out there and gave it their all, and Triple H truly did what was Best for Business and put Bryan over her tonight. The after match beat down was brutal and still sets the mystery if Bryan can capture the title here tonight. As I said before I’m not a big Bryan fan, but tonight he had me chanting Yes! Yes! Yes!

New Age Outlaws (“Road Dogg” Jesse James & “Bad Ass” Billy Gunn) & Kane vs. The Shield (Dean Ambrose (c), Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns)

The Outlaws are out first, and Road Dogg does his normal routine down to the ring, that is before he is interrupted by The Shield’s music, as they come down through the audience and some awesome looking mask. Out next is Kane and the match is underway! The Shield dominated the entire match. I don’t think The Outlaws or Kane got much, if any offense in! There were some cool spots like Seth and Dean flying through the ropes and of course The Triple Powerbomb to both Road Dogg and Billy at the same time, after that it was over!

Winner – The Shield

Ranking – 5\10: This was not what I was expecting! The Shield went out there and completely dominated. There were no signs of hope for their opponents. This match was just filled with a bunch of The Shield’s big moves, and honestly. It felt rushed from the entrances. I wonder if Triple H and Bryan went over time? Eitheir way this match suffered from how short it was. Anyone who was expecting a memorable match form The Shield tonight, was disappointed! Myself included!

Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal

Only two superstars entrances were shown, The Heavy favorite The Big Show and The Celtic Warrior Sheamus. I gotta say for a Battle Royal, this was actually pretty entertaining. We saw some great spots here tonight, such as Sheamus BEATING the chest of Fandango, Kofi flying over the turnbuckle just to land his feet on the steel steps saving him from elimination, and the impressive uppercut from Cesaro to eliminate Rey Mysterio, but I think the most memorable moment was when Cesaro lifted The Big Show up and tossed him over the ropes to win!

Winner – Cesaro

Rating –  7-10: I gotta say, this match caught me of guard! I was expecting a sloppy mess, and to be fair in the beginning it kind of was, but once the ring started to clear out, is when the action started to pick up. Giving Cesaro the rub here tonight was a sign of things to come. After losing the pre show Tag Match and ending his partnership with Swagger, Cesaro went on to bigger and better things and made history here tonight by winning the very first and what could possible be the last Andre the Giant Battle Royal.

Bray Wyatt w/ Luke Harper & Eric Rowan vs. John Cena

The second out of our four main events is next up, and I gotta say I’m really excited for this one! The build has been amazing for this and Bray Wyatt’s entrance was great and hearing Mark Cozer and his band perform is was incredible! I wish I could say the same about this match! Bray played up his character and begged Cena to let the monster out and at times it would appear he was about to, but Cena took it to Wyatt and overcame the odds by reversing Sister Abagail into the Attitude Adjustment for the Three Count!

Winner – John Cena

Rating -5\10: This match was disappointing! The build was so great and I had high expectations, and I guess that was my mistake. There were a few highlights like Bray countering The Five Knuckle Shuffle with a Spider Walk, and of course Bray singing while rubbing Cena’s head was entertaing, and Cena had his fair share like the cross body  on the outside to Harper and Rowan, but the match was slow and Cena winning just felt wrong. This is just a typical Cena match to be honest. He gets beat up, comes back and wins…even if it means young talent doesn’t get put over. With as much praise as Cena gave Wyatt, I thought for sure he would put him over, but tonight Super Cena wins again!

The Undertaker vs. Brock Lesnar w/ Paul Heyman

The Video Promo for this match was much better than the actual build to it. Paul Heyman played up Lesnar big time and just made this video such a pleasure to watch, but kind of like the previous match. The match itself was not anything to impressive. Honestly there really weren’t many highlights, just two guys fighting. The most shocking part of the match was the ending, as Lesnar threw Taker on his shoulders for a third time and hit him with another F5 and pinned him for the three, just ending The Undertaker’s 21-0 streak!

Winner – Brock Lesnar

Rating – 6\10: This was a HUGE mistake! I’ve always been one to say The Streak should end, but not this way. Brock Lesnar is almost 40 years old, I believe he is 37. He is a part time superstar, and has absolutely no upside to winning. In fact it feels like the biggest slap in the face. If Taker’s streak had to end it should of been to someone young, but already established just needs that extra push to make them a star! Not someone like Brock Lesnar, and the fact that The build to the match, or even the match itself wasn’t good, really hurts this the most. There is really no memorable thing here. Yes this mania will always be known for the day The Streak ended, but that’s it. The Build up won’t be remembered and the match won’t be remembered. Just the ending, and to end The Streak like that was the biggest mistake the WWE has ever made. Bigger than the XFL and bigger than The Montreal Screwjob.

WWE Divas Championsip

Vickie Guerrero Invitational

Yet another battle royal, but this one is different. It’s not over the top and its not even elimination. The first Diva to score a pin fall or submission is the Divas Champion. Now I really thought this was going to be a train wreck, but it actually wasn’t. It was pretty good in my opinion! There were some great highlights here tonight such as all the divas ganging up on AJ and Tamina, or Eva Marie pushing Tamina down and even The Bella stare off, but at the end of the match Aj locked Naomi in The Black Widow to force her to tap

Winner – AJ Lee

Rating -6\10: This was a fun match. I thought it was going to be a mess, but surprisingly it wasn’t! The Divas looked good tonight. The one fault in this match is the winner. As much as I love AJ, her time with the belt should of ended tonight. She isn’t over anymore, and she offers nothing more to this reign. I was expecting a Total Diva to walk out with the title. Someone like Natalya, Nikki or Brie Bella or even Summer Rae would of made sense, but it seems WWE wants to hold onto Ms. Lee a bit longer.

WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match!

Randy Orton (c) vs. Batista vs. Daniel Bryan

and now it is time for our main event. Orton is out first to a live performance by Rev Theory! than Batista and out last is Bryan. I’m surprised Triple H didn’t come out and announce himself part of the match, but whatever. I gotta say this match was great. Bryan out did himself tonight with Two great matches, but Byran can;t be given all the credit because both Batista and Orton helped. In fact I think we saw those two fight one on one more than we saw Bryan. The match really started to pick up when Bryan had the YES! Lock, locked in on Batista and Triple H and Stephanie McMahon made thier way through the crowd and pulled the referee out! Than sending in rogue ref Scott Armstrong, made it feel it was over for Bryan, but he manged to kick out of The Batista Bomb and even got a good kick onto Armstrong. Bryan than dove out of the ring to take Armstrong, Triple H and even Steph out. The Game seeking retribution pulled out his trust sledgehammer but Bryan was able to get a hold of it and deck HHH with it. After that is where it went downhill for Bryan, as both Orton and Batista worked together to take out Bryan and even hit an amazing combination of The Batista Bomb and RKO through the Spanish Announce Table! Bryan seemed out of it has he was put in a neck brace and began to get stretched to the back, while Batista and Orton battled in the ring. Bryan was able to get out of the stretcher and urge himself back into the match, but paid for it when The Viper Struck. After some great back in forth action between the three, Bryan locked in the YES! Lock for a second time on Batista and forced him to tap out! Gaining him is retribution!

Winner and New WWE World Heavyweight Champion – Daniel Bryan

 

Rating – 9\10: This match was GREAT! Both Byran’s matches tonight could potentially be Match of the Year! As many mistakes as the WWE made tonight at Mania, this was no one of them. They gave Bryan his moment and I may not like the guy, but it is well deserved! At the Wrestlemania were the WWE rushed the Shield, let Cena bet Bray, ended The Streak and aloud Aj to continue her reign, the one thing they did right was give the WWE Universe what the really wanted and that is Daniel Bryan as the WWE World Heavyweight Champion!

Superstar of the Night – Brock Lesnar

Tonight was Daniel Bryan’s night, but Lesnar stole the show tonight! As much as Bryan deserves to be superstar of the night, I just can’t make him it. He accomplished a huge goal tonight. Competed in the best matches and won the World Title Finally! but he didn’t end the streak. 18 men have tried to end The Deadman’s streak and only one could, and even though I hate giving it to him and how pissed I am that The Streak ended that way and it still did. Brock Lesnar did the impossible tonight when he became the first and only man to defeat The Undertaker at Wrestlemania, and that is why he is the superstar of the night!
