WWE WrestleMania 34 Final Rating: Poor Finish Plagues Stellar Show

  • Paul Heyman on Whether or Not CM Punk Could Return to WWE

I'd been looking forward to it; back at WrestleMania 31, Reigns and Lesnar had a great match until it was interrupted by Seth Rollins cashing in an "any time, anywhere" title shot mid-match to make the contest into a three-way. He left New Orleans last night with Universal Heavyweight Title in tow and many of us writers scrambling to figure out what comes next.

Jinder Mahal scored the United States belt... so much for Rusev Day. Is this what wrestling fans and Roman Reigns have to look forward to? WrestleMania, as a rule, has to offer a bit of both during its epic seven-hour running time. More likely, Lesnar may have been frustrated that the crowd treated the match like a joke, chanting "This is awful" and "Boring" throughout. It's not clear if this was something coordinated privately between Lesnar and Reigns or if Lesnar went into business for himself.

Just one year ago, if you had been told that Brock Lesnar would still be the Universal Champion after WrestleMania, you might have laughed. Not to mention, it should be very interesting to see how Styles and Nakamura plays out now that Nakamura is a heel.

Following that, Nakamura hugged AJ and then kneeled down to Styles and presented him the WWE Championship - a moment for all the WWE lovers. Nia Jax stood up for body positivity, and the crowd roared with approval when she lifted the Raw Women's Championship.

The Greatest Royal Rumble will stream live on the award-winning WWE Network and will be available on pay-per-view outside of the Middle East with regional broadcast information forthcoming.

Daniel Bryan made a winning return to the WWE when he and Shane McMahon beat Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. The argument can be made it was the best match of the night with all four individuals shining, especially Rousey for her in-ring debut that saw her make Stephanie tap out while also roughing up Triple H. And Taker took care of Cena in under five minutes to make a huge statement that he isn't finished.

Another exciting match of the night was UFC icon Ronda Rousey teaming up with 1996 Atlanta Olympic Gold medal victor Kurt Angle to defeat Tripple H and his wife Stephanie McMahon.

From a random fan Nicholas winning the RAW Tag-team championship along with Braun Strowman to Asuka's unbeaten streak in the WWE ending, the showcase of the immortals had quite a few aces up it sleeve.

WrestleMania 34, which starting from its 4 p.m. pre-show ended just a bit after hitting the 8-hour mark, was by nearly every metric a triumph.
