Levi's Stadium played host to a wild evening of wrestling and entertainment. Wrestlemania 31 did not disappoint, and might go down as one of the most entertaining Wrestlemanias in recent history. We got a wild end to the main event, and the of crazy booking the rest of the card that can be annoying at Monday Night RAW, but is so much fun at the grand daddy of them all.
The craziest part of the evening ended up happening in the main event. After Brock Lesnar dominated Roman Reigns for over 15 minutes, it appeared Reigns might be making a comeback. He connected with three superman punches and two spears, but could not finish off Brock Lesnar. After Lesnar got in one more F-5 but was too spent to immediately cover, Seth Rollins flew into the ring to cash in his Money In The Bank briefcase. The one-on-one match quickly became a triple threat match. Rollins threw Reigns out of the ring and Curb Stomped Lesnar. He then prepared for a second one, but as he approached, Lesnar caught him and set up the F-5. Before Lesnar could hit it, Reigns speared him. Rollins was able to get up and curb-stomp Reigns and get the pin to leave Wrestlemania as WWE heavyweight champ.
Prior to the main event, the craziest part of the evening had to be seeing MMA star Ronda Rousey climb into the ring with the Rock, and proceed to hip toss HHH and put Stephanie McMahon in an arm bar. HHH and Steph were out to talk about how they own everybody and WWE's success is due to them. This brought out The Rock in a rare appearance. It potentially set up a Wrestlemania 32 match between Rock and HHH, but there was plenty to entertain us Sunday evening. Steph told Rock to leave the ring and said he wouldn't hit her. He did leave, but then found Ronda Rousey in the front row, and invited her in. That led to this:
The most randomly amusing segment for me came during the Sting-HHH match earlier in the evening. The two had a fairly slow match, which was to be expected from men of that age. However, as Sting put HHH into the Scorpion Death Lock, DX music hit. X-Pac and the New Age Outlaws raced out. Sting cleared the ring, but HHH was eventually able to gain advantage. He set up Sting for the Pedigree, when NWO's music hit. They raced out and evened the odds. It seemed like Sting was set to win this thing, but as he went for another Scorpion Death Lock, Shawn Michaels appeared and super kicked him. We had some more back and forth until HHH finally drilled Sting with his sledgehammer. HHH got the pin, and then we had Sting and HHH shaking hands after the match. It was so crazy, and so bizarre.
This doesn't even begin to cover everything that went down, but those are probably my three favorite parts of the evening. A fourth would be the intros for Rusev vs. John Cena, with Rusev rolling to the ring in a friggin' tank. It was awesome. Check out the Cageside Seats recap, which provides a full rundown of a wild evening at Levi's Stadium.
