The one downside of that match was that it really showcased how limited Reigns' moveset is

Awesome stuff all round in that match :datass: As soon as they said the champ would be NBC tomorrow you kinda had a feeling that probably meant Brock wouldn't be leaving as champ. I'm hoping he works Extreme Rules next month. Triple threat when them three would be brilliant.

I think Brock has done Extreme Rules for the past few years so I guess that's when his rematch will be. Wouldn't be surprised to see that be a triple threat.

If they hare having Cena not fight in the main event at Wrestlemania then they really need to stop putting him in matches with emerging stars and beating them for no reason other than because. Him beating Wyatt last year grinded his momentum to a halt and he's never recovered from that. I hope the same doesn't happen to Rusev as the finish to that match was pretty silly, especially since he went into that match unbeaten in over a year. The sooner Vince strawberry floats off, the better.

I'm about 15 minutes behind everyone else because of the amount of pauses I got using the network stream :x

That main event was just :datass:

I think Brock might win the title back in his rematch,Rollins and Reigns can feud while he's gone.

No need for Brock to win it back so soon only to disappear until Summerslam, the Reigns/Rollins feud will benefit from having the title.

Voice is shot from shouting - loved every second of that. The curb stomp/RKO was just insane - nobody in the stadium could believe what they saw. What a show - being there it genuinely felt like one of the best ever.

Anyway, nice little anecdote for you: went back to the talent hotel and we were watching the talent arrive from the arena. When Lana and Rusev came in, John Cena's dad - who was hanging around waiting for John, I guess - went up to Rusev and they had the biggest hug. He then shook Lana's hand and then he and Rusev were chatting for about a minute. Rusev had the biggest, most genuine grin you've ever seen - he looked like the happiest man on earth. Really lovely to see, that.

Of all the 'RKOs from outta nowhere' that has to be the very best of them. The amount of height Rollins got from the curbstomp prior to it was incredible.

I'll give credit to Reigns and Lesnar, they didn't hold anything back. Reigns took a serious beating. That clothesline off the apron looked like it really could've ended horribly for Reigns.

Reigns' face before the slap hits :lol:

Also Pell how were things in terms of fan reactions actually live? Who got the biggest pops and boos? Were fans into the main event from start to finish? (like no random chants?)

Still can't get over how well they (or Vince on his own if the rumours were true) booked that main event. Also, just to reiterate, I called it all last week :datass:

Has to go down as one of the best Wrestlemania's of all time.

Who would've thought going into it that Reigns v Lesnar would be the match of the night. Simply outstanding. The pacing, the level of work, the finish... I really can't find fault with it. Was worried we might see Reigns kill off both Lesnar and Rollins' MITB shot when he cashed in mid-match, but glad it ended the way it did. I stood up and applauded the TV screen.

The finish to Rollins v Orton, wow. A genuinely amazing spot. Didn't see it coming either. Another great match, but is it any surprise given the participants? Orton looked as solid as always and got the win before Rollins came out to commit the 'heist'.

Thought Rusev looked great but always knew they were going to go with Cena. It'll be very exciting to see who Bryan and Cena drop the IS and US belts to.

Didn't think that much of Sting v Triple H. I honestly can't fathom why they would have HHH win either unless he's going into a big match at Extreme Rules. Sting did look decent enough and I felt he was less gassed than Taker. I still can't decide if I loved HHH's entrance or thought it was completely lame.

Really looking forward to the Reign of Rollins. Think he has everything it needs to go on to hold it til Summerslam at least.

Plenty of people called it.

I'd love to see a Rusev v Brock feud, Heyman absolutely ripping the piss out of Lana would be amazing. Hoping for a Bryan v Barrett feud now too.

I've seen quite a few people already say that was one of the best Wrestlemanias, and possibly the best. Not quite sure about that. I thought a lot of the matches were pretty average and the only stand-out ones were Orton v Rollins and the main event. I was disappointed with the ladder match and the Cena v Rusev on just felt a bit flat despite that phenomenal entrance. The Triple H match was just classic Triple H, but not in a good way, and while his segment with the Rock was good it went on for far too long.

Insane to call it one of the best Wrestlemanias.

Rollins was the only new star created tonight and he was over before anyway.

There were no 5* matches. The main event was brilliantly booked but to say it was a great wrestling match? Hmmm.

Really solid Wrestlemania but they got to start putting new people over.

All the money WWE spent getting Lesnar to re-sign they're going to make back in "Suplex City, Bitch" shirts. I've got my heart set on going to Mania next year now

Just watched the main event. :datass:

That was so good. I didn't think Reigns was capable of a good match but it turns out he can have one if you just throw him around the entire match.

Brock is so good at just being a badass, I'm so glad he's sticking around and I'm already looking forward to seeing his return.

So glad Seth got to cash in and win. He's been looking like the main guy for some time now and he finally gets to be it.

Bar the Orton/Rollins match and the main event, nothing else stood out to me as fantastic. But those two matches alone made it a pretty great show.

How did Reigns come out looking good from that main event exactly?

He got thrown around the ring like a rag doll for 3/4 of it before getting pinned by Rollins.

Brock was the one who was protected and came out of that like he'd been stiffed.

He fought a stiff match with Brock Lesnar, he gets points for being tough at the very least. He was also part of a fantastic Wrestlemania main event, so if that doesn't earn some respect from the more hardcore fans I don't know what can. I hope the fans lay off him now and he is slowly built up again

He looked tough - Lesnar threw him around like a rag doll and he wouldn't quit. It took a city full of suplexes, four F5s and two curb stomps to put him down.
