WrestleMania 33 took place at the Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla. there were 75,245 fans, which is a new Citrus Bowl record.
The show began with AJ Styles facing Shane McMahon. Styles used The Phenomenal Forearm to get the win over Smackdown Live! Commissioner.
Kevin Owens then defeated his former friend and fellow Canadanian Chris Jericho. Owens is the new United States Champion.
Barley thrn retained her WWE Women’s Championship in a Fatal Fourway Elimination match. It took Bayley, Charlotte Flair and Sasha Banks to pin Nia Jax.
Then, Banks was eliminated to make it Bayley and Flair. Bayley used the Macho Elbow in honor of “Macho Man” Randy Savage to defeat Flair.
Prior to the Fatal Fourway Ladder Match, The New Day, who were the WrestleMania hosts, announced that The Hardy Boyz (Matt and Jeff Hardy) were making it a Fatal Fourway. They joined Enzo Amore and Big Cass; Cesaro and Sheamus; and WWE Raw Tag Team Champions The Club (Gallows and Anderson).
The Hardy Boyz, who were making their return to the WWE for the first-time in nearly seven-years, won the 12th Ladder match in WrestleMania history. The Hardy have been rumored to return to the WWE for the past several weeks.
In the Mixed Tag Team match, John Cena and Nikki Bella defeated husband and wife The Miz and Maryse. Bella and Cena used a Double Attitude Adjustment to get the win.
Seth Rollins won the non-sanctioned match against Triple H. Despite having numerous problems with his injured knee, Rollins was able to get the job done.
Rollins wanted to be whole again after claiming that Teiple H ruined his life when he turned his back on former Shield members Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns.
Randy Orton then defeated Bray Wyatt to become the new WWE Smackdown Live Champion. The third-generation wrestler is now in his ninth reign as the WWE Champion.
As expected, Brock Lesnar defeated Goldberg. The 50-year-old recently said that returning over the past six-months have been a nightmare, especially on his body.
Goldberg had two spears early on after Lesnar hit him with a German Suplex. Then after a failed F5 by Lesnar, Goldberg hit Lesnar with a third spear.
He also hit Lesnar with a Jackhammer. However, Lesnar escaped the three count.
Goldberg, who was looking for a fourth spear, hit his head on the turnbuckle after Lesnar, whose nearly 300-pounds, leaped out of the way.
Lesnar capitalized and took Goldberg to Suplex City TEN straight times. He then used an F5 to get the win over Goldberg and win the WWE Universal Championship.
This is expected to be the last-time the WWE Universe sees Goldberg as an in-ring competitor.
In the Six-Pack Challenge, Naomi regained the WWE Smackdown Live Women’s Championship. She was previously the champion before getting injured and returning for this event.
She used a submission maneuver to get the win over Alexa Bliss, the former champion. Naomi won the belt in her hometown of Orlando, Fla.
Reigns then retired The Undertaker, who walked away from the WWE after the match. It took Reigns four spears, including a vicious spear after leveraging the ropes to end the match.
He’s only the second competitor to defeat The Undertaker. Brock Lesnar was the first to pull off the feat at WrestleMania XXX in New Orleans, La. He’s now 23-2 on the biggest stage of the year.
Following the match, The Undertaker took off his gloves in the middle of the ring. It was a symbolic gesture meaning that he’s walking away from wrestling.
After removing his gloves, he put his black jacket on top of his gloves. Then, he put his black hat on top of those two.
He walked over to his wife — and former WWE Superstar Michelle McCool — and gave her a kiss. He walked up the stage and then put his fist in the air as he was lowered out of sight.
Thank you Taker.
