Wrestlemania 34 had a few surprises for viewers.
Sunday evening, WWE succeeded at crafting a lineup of exciting moments that all came together to make for one electrifying 34th iteration of WrestleMania.
For one, former UFC Champion Ronda Rousey made her in-ring debut when she and Kurt Angle collided to defeat Stephanie McMahon and Triple H in a mixed tag team matchup. Competitors Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar put on one tantalizing match that arrived in the midst of rumors surrounding Lesnar’s return to the UFC while wrestlers Charlotte Flair and Asuka took part in an exceptional women’s match when Flair put an end to Asuka’s undefeated streak. Fans even took part in the action when Braun Strowman picked a young spectator out of the crowd to help him defeat partners Sheamus and Cesaro.
But, the evening’s most unprecedented moment arrived when The Undertaker claimed a squash victory over John Cena. Oddly enough, what turned out to be the night’s greatest moment had no part in any prior publicity. Fans were left to hope off the strength of rumors of Undertaker’s appearance, and the chance taken by Vince MCMahon and the WWE Universe paid off.
“WWE was able to leverage the brand power of WrestleMania […] to book a storyline and match that will be remembered for decades,” notes Forbes’s Alfred Konuwa. Naturally, Twitter had much to say about the result of WrestleMania 34 with many acutally voicing the fact that they weren't too impressed with the show put on Sunday night.
