Wrestlemania 38 which on paper looked liked their weakest one yet actually ended up not sucking too much. The second night saw more title changes, Pat McAfee emerging as a real star, and a new faction led by Edge! The show kicked off with Triple H doing a final appearance in the ring. The show delivered on nostalgia and excitement without falling too far in its weaker moments.
In the main event, WWE champion Brock Lesnar clashed with Roman Reigns in a bout to unify WWE’s top two championships.
In the end, Reigns was able to outlast Lesnar in another of their typical hard-hitting matches, though one that didn’t live up to the past clashes between the two men.
Instead of the main event, the lasting memory of Night 2 may instead be Vince McMahon returning to the wrestling ring as he faced Pat McAfee in an impromptu match moments after McAfee defeated McMahon protege Austin Theory. McMahon ultimately got the victory but was embarrassed by his greatest rival when “Stone Cold” Steve Austin made an appearance for the second night in a row.
