WWE Wrestlemania Night 2: 3 Must-See Moments
Austin/McMahon rivalry concludes
To close out Night 1 of Wrestlemania, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin made his in-ring return for the first time in 19 years. Austin appeared on the KO Show with Kevin Owens which quickly turned into a No Holds Barred match. For the better part of 15 minutes, Austin and Owens brawled all over AT&T Stadium. In the end, Austin got the win with a Stone Cold Stunner followed by a beer bash.
On Night 2, former NFL player and Smackdown commentator Pat McAfee had his Wrestlemania moment. McAfee faced Vince McMahon’s hand-picked opponent in Austin Theory with both men putting on a solid match. McAfee was able to get the win with a roll-up but faced McMahon’s wrath in the end. McMahon defeated McAfee in an impromptu match after interference from Theory but it didn’t end well. Austin’s music hit before connecting on Theory and McMahon with a stunner. McAfee attempted a beer toast with the rattlesnake, however, he received a stunner for his trouble.
End of an Era
Roman Reigns defeated John Cena at last year’s Summerslam ended with the return of Brock Lesnar. In the months that followed, Lesnar won the WWE Championship while dealing with the betrayal of Paul Heyman. In the main event of WWE Wrestlemania 38, Reigns and Lesnar battled title for title. The match was solid and followed a similar formula to their previous matches. After breaking free from an armlock, Reigns hit Lesnar with a spear for the win and undisputed title.
Triple H says goodbye
Last summer it was announced that Triple H had suffered a “cardiac event.” Few details were reported until last month when Triple H appeared on ESPN with Stephen A. Smtih. Triple H confirmed that he caught viral pneumonia that transitioned into heart failure. With a defibrillator in his heart, “The Game” announced his retirement. Fast forward to the start of WWE Wrestlemania Night 2, the sounds of Motor Head rang across AT&T Stadium. Triple H came to the ring and hit his signature poses before grabbing the microphone to thank the WWE Universe. Before leaving the ring, Triple H left his boots in the ring to confirm his in-ring retirement.
