Neville retained his WWE Cruiserweight Championship over Austin Aries, who was making his WrestleMania debut. Neville continues his win streak that dates back to October 2016.
This was the first-time the WWE Cruiserweight Championship has been defended at WrestleMania since 2004. That was during WrestleMania XX at Madison Square Garden.
Chavo Guerrero retained his Cruiserweight belt in the Cruiserweight Open for the belt. He defeated Ultimo Dragon, Shannon Moore, Jamie Noble, Funaki, Nunzio, Billy Kidman, Rey Mysterio, Tajiri and Akio.
MoJo Rawley won the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal. He outlasted Jinder Mahal, who was the other competitor that was lasting in the ring with him.
Rawley then eliminated Mahal and celebrated in the ring with his friend Rob Gronkowski. The New England Patriots tight end interfered earlier in the match when Mahal threw walk or alcohol in Gronkowski’s face.
He wasn’t happy with that and he was briefly stopped by WWE security. But they did not tell him to get back into his seat.
Gronkowski would then enter the ring and take his white tshirt off. He would then attack Mahal with a block that sent him down to his feet.
Mahal would last a little while longer before being eliminated.
Then in the third pre-show match, Dean Ambrose retained his WWE Intercontinental Championship over Baron Corbin. This match was moved to the pre-show after officials switched the Six-Pack Challenge for the Smackdown Live! Women’s Championship to the main card.
Ambrose countered End of Days with his own finisher, Dirty Deeds, to get the win.
