Night one of WrestleMania 36 offered a number of big surprises. Braun Strowman steamrolled Goldberg to become the new Universal champion, Kevin Owens jumped off the WrestleMania sign to attack Seth Seth Rollins, and a singles triple threat ladder match for a tag team title repeatedly shocked the viewing audience.
But the biggest headline grabber of all was the Boneyard match that closed out the night, as AJ Styles and The Undertaker battled in a cinematic romp through a graveyard.
Now it’s time for night two. Four titles will be on the line, including men’s Royal Rumble winner Drew McIntyre challenging Brock Lesnar for the WWE championship and Bayley defending her SmackDown women’s title in a five-way match. For the first time ever on a WrestleMania card and NXT title will be defended, as women’s Royal Rumble winner Charlotte Flair challenges NXT women’s champion Rhea Ripley.
In one of the most anticipated matches of the weekend, Edge has his first one-on-one match in nine years against Randy Orton, under Last Man Standing rules. And in what will likely be another unconventional cinematic adventure, John Cena faces “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt in a Firefly Funhouse match.
Marc Raimondi and Tim Fiorvanti are here to break it all down live, with ESPN Stats & Info’s Sean Coyle rating each match on his customized scale of 0-5.
