For the second consecutive night, WrestleMania 37 received a main event worthy of the biggest stage in professional wrestling. In front of a sold-out crowd inside Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Roman Reigns put his universal championship on the line against Edge and Daniel Bryan in the final match of the two-night extravaganza.
Reigns, Edge and Bryan delivered a thrilling match with all three men coming within inches of winning the championship in a wild triple threat match. Jey Uso found his way into the match on several occasions but paid the price every time for his involvement in trying to give Reigns an upper hand before a stunning finish to the show. The match was a worthy follow-up to the incredible main event from Night 1 where Bianca Belair won the SmackDown women’s championship in a war with Sasha Banks.

“The Fiend” Bray Wyatt vs. Randy Orton: Before the match, The Fiend was shown “burning” and returning to his original form, no longer appearing burned. Alexa Bliss cranked a giant Jack-in-the-box next to the ring before The Fiend emerged. The Fiend dove off the box, nailing Orton with a clothesline and then hitting a uranage suplex. Orton attacked The Fiend on the outside of the ring, dropping him on the announce table, but his offense had no effect before The Fiend locked in the mandible claw. Orton escaped back into the ring and hit the hanging DDT, again to no effect as The Fiend came back to continue his assault.
After sending The Fiend face-first into the box, Orton finally was able to start doing some damage. As Orton built momentum, he tried to hit the RKO but The Fiend countered into the mandible claw. The Fiend attempted to hit Sister Abigail, but fire shot from the ring posts and The Fiend looked at Alexa Bliss, who was seated on the box with black goo shooting down her face. The distraction allowed Orton to hit the RKO and score the pinfall victory. After the match, The Fiend stared down Bliss before the lights went out. When the lights came back, both had disappeared. This was very odd all around. The pre-match spectacle of The Fiend’s entrance was great, but the match itself didn’t really do much before the sudden, very odd ending. Randy Orton def. “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt via pinfall. Grade: C-

The challengers continued their hot start, isolating Baszler through a series of tags, leading to a near fall when Natalya hit a slingshot into a Tamina superkick.
Baszler was able to hit a knee to Natalya’s face to finally take over the match, going to work on Natalya’s knee after putting her down. Jax was in for a moment and tried to lock in a stretch muffler but Natalya attempted to…
