Lesnar finally showed up to win unfair brawls against Reigns.
Hardy's former rival, whom he defeated in an Ultimate Deletion match a couple of weeks ago, returned as a mid-match surprise and helped Hardy eliminate Baron Corbin and Mojo Rawley to win.
For the second year in a row, the cruiserweights set the match-quality bar high early at WrestleMania - last year, Austin Aries and Neville opened with a barnburner in Orlando.
Men wrestling women can be a tricky prospect. Rollins scored the pinfall after delivering his Curb Stomp finisher to Miz, giving Rollins the grand slam of WWE championships, now having held every major title on the main roster.
In a vacuum, this might have been an entertaining match, but with the fans totally not interested (beach balls and Mexican waves were frequent) and the pace so painfully slow, it was looking like topping Goldberg vs. Lesnar's first tussle as the most hated Mania match of all-time. She was UFC's first ever woman's bantamweight champion.
The United States Championship was at stake next with Randy Orton defending against Bobby Roode, Jinder Mahal, and Rusev.
The Undertaker made his stunning comeback and squashed John Cena in just three minutes while Ronda Rousey made her in-ring debut teaming with Kurt Angle. The match will end with a memorable visual: Kurt Angle will lock Triple H into an Ankle Lock, Rousey will lock McMahon into an armbar, and both victims will scream and tap in the center of the ring at the same time. WWE now has a ten year old Tag Team Champion though so what comes next? The women's division was already loaded with talent, and as of now, it's just about the most exciting thing WWE has. One thing's for certain, though: Reigns is never going to be the guy Vince wants him to be. Cena ended up taking care of Elias and just when Cena was walking up the ramp to leave, The Deadman rose. Best of all, though, has to be Taker absolutely running through Cena in nearly record time. It was an outstanding sequence of events and the match did everything it needed to do in a wonderful piece of storytelling.
And although the event featured the return of Daniel Bryan and The Undertaker, it was Rousey who stole the show.
As Nicholas is still too young to start training as a professional wrestler, much less compete in the WWE, it's still unsure how the company will book Braun Strowman going forward as a first-time Raw Tag Team Champion.
In what has to be the most satisfying match of the night, the Raw Women's Championship was at stake when Alexa Bliss defended against Nia Jax. "She has a title defense record that still isn't broken, the unbelievable fight last night with Rose [Namajunas] and Joanna [Jedrzejczyk] wouldn't have been possible without Ronda kickstarting everything and I could go on and on".
