WWE Wrestlemania 34 Results and Review

Ronda Rousey at WM 34 - src wwe 
Welcome to New Orleans and the latest edition of WWE Wrestlemania, this time there were 78,133 people in the building and the card was stacked from top to bottom. This seemed to go 9 or 10 hours, but it was only around 7 hours. If you saw it, then you may wonder what my thoughts are and if you didn’t see it, you may want to know what my thoughts are anyways because you read this diatribe of mine.

WWE Wrestlemania 34 Results and Review

Matt Hardy won the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal

This was a cluster of a match but it ended well enough. There were some highlights, including Mojo getting Zack Ryder out, and lots of eliminations, until it was Matt Hardy that won the match. He would win thanks to the lights going out and Bray Wyatt showing up to befriend him. The two are now WOKEN together!

Cedric Alexander defeated Mustafa Ali for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship

I love these two, but I feel that I’ve seen this match happen many times before. It was good, but in 12 minutes, there’s not much that could be told about it, so I guess it was ok at best. I have seen these two do this match before, many times it seems.

Naomi won the Women’s Battle Royal

This was under 10 minutes and was somewhat boring. Naomi was great at the end after Bayley eliminated Sasha Banks, and would become the big winner here. It was not bad, but it was far from good either. Under 10 minutes, that’s the revolution folks.

Seth Rollins defeated The Miz and Finn Balor in a triple threat match for the Intercontinental Championship

A good back and forth match with some impressive moments from The Miz. The Miz wasn’t a slouch here, he had some great momentum to disrupt the better wrestlers. I was impressed by his work here, and of course Balor and Rollins were great as usual. Lots of broken pinfall attempts, lots of counters and lots of fun to see in this match.

Charlotte Flair defeated Asuka

In only 13 minutes, Asuka’s streak was broken by Charlotte Flair. The two wrestled a good match, but it was painfully obvious that they were getting rushed. It was a hard hitting affair, with Asuka’s chest turning bright red and blistered after some heavy chops from Charlotte. Asuka worked on the arm of charlotte, but it wasn’t enough, she put on the Figure 8 and made it Asuka tap out. Hell of a match for only being 13 minutes.

Jinder Mahal defeated Rusev, Bobby Roode, and Randy Orton for the United States Championship

Wow, in just 8 minutes and some change Jinder Mahal was able to capture the United States Championship, and well, the modern day Maharaja continues to win, and it baffles many. This was a fast match, and it featured a lot of quick moments, with distractions and Jinder Mahal getting the pinfall victory.

Kurt Angle and Ronda Rousey defeated Triple H and Stephanie McMahon

This was by far the most entertaining 20 some odd minutes of professional wrestling that I’ve seen a rookie put on ever. Ronda Rousey is amazing, and she put on a show, and it was great to see her work. I am so proud of her, and love her. She is truly an amazing woman, and was able to get the wrestling thing down well, and made Stephanie McMahon tap out with relative ease. I loved it. I cannot say enough about how great this match was.

The Bludgeon Brothers defeated The Usos and The New Day in the WWE Smackdown Tag Team Championship Match

The teams only had about 5 minutes to work, so the match didn’t get too hot, and it was dead when the Bludgeon Brothers won. Oh well.

The Undertaker defeated John Cena

In 3 Minutes, John Cena was buried. But first out came Elias and got a beat down for his troubles. The Undertaker looks old, I don’t want to see him wrestle anymore.

Daniel Bryan and Shane McMahon defeated Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn

This was better than I thought and no one turned on each other. The match was 15 minutes long and it was a fun back and forth match with Daniel Bryan eventually getting the hot tag and making Zayn tap out. The match was fun, and I loved seeing Daniel Bryan back in action.

Nia Jax defeated Alexa Bliss for the WWE Raw Championship

Holy crap, Nia Jax put the boots to Alexa Bliss. Bliss did a great deal of offense, however, but this time around it was Nia Jax’s night and she was able to get the pinfall after some great offense overall.

Aj Styles defeated Shinsuke Nakamura in the WWE Championship Match

A 20 minute boring and methodical match ensued here. This was not nearly as good as their New Japan fight, and it sufficed in many ways to be a slow moving, well plotted match for what it was. However, after the match Nakamura low blowed Styles and became a bad guy. Ok. The match was not great.

Braun Strowman and Nicholas defeated Cesaro and Sheamus for the WWE Raw Tag Team Championship

In 4 minutes, Braun Strowman did quick work of the BAR. He picked a kid from the audience to be his partner, and that was that.

Brock Lesnar defeated Roman Reigns in the WWE Universal Championship match

What a load of crap. Lesnar was blown up, he looked tired and like he didn’t care. Roman carried Broke many times, and even got the brunt of Lesnar being too tired to work, and made him look great. However, at one point Lesnar busted open Reigns the hard way with his elbow, and then threw down another F5, 6 in total, and pinned Reigns to win the match. I’m so sick of Lesnar. He wins, oh well.

Overall, Wrestlemania was a fun show to watch, even if it was a little long. The Rousey match was my favorite and I loved her even more for getting out there and being great. Other than that, Flair and Asuka was good, and so was the Nia Jax match. Other than that, this was a mediocre showcase, and I’m glad I didn’t go to New Orleans. But I will be in Chicago twice this year for WWE and All In shows.
