WWE WrestleMania 39 night 2 results, grades: Roman Reigns wins to continue run

Roman Reigns continued his historic run as he became the first person to enter three consecutive WrestleMania main events as champion in the same cycle.

The Tribal Chief beat Cody Rhodes to retain the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship as he continues to dominate the title picture with fans in search of their next hero.

The American Nightmare came close and it looked like it might happen when Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens chased off The Usos, but Solo Sikoa proved to be the difference maker as Reigns got the win.

The night started with a bang as Brock Lesnar beat Omos in a fun heavyweight scrap, finally getting the Nigerian Giant up for an F-5 after a series of German Suplexes.

The second match, the women’s tag team WrestleMania Showcase, didn’t quite live up the standard set by last night’s Fatal Four Way bout.

In the end, Ronda Rousey – who is nursing an injury and had limited involvement throughout the bout – made Shotzi tap out to the armbar to give the Baddest Woman on the Planet and her teammate Shayna Baszler the win.

Bobby Lashley came out to celebrate with the Andre The Giant trophy after winning the memorial battle royal on SmackDown, but the segment ended without incident despite speculation the All Mighty could still have a role to play amid Bray Wyatt’s absence.

Sheamus, Drew McIntyre and GUNTHER went to war over the Intercontinental Title in a match that fully lived up to the hype and delivered an extreme level of physicality.

All three men left the ring battered and bruised, but it was the Ring General who got the win to keep his run as champion going strong.

After Shane O’Mac’s legitimate injury, this showed quick thinking by everyone involved – especially the hip hop legend – to save a segment which could easily have fallen flat by the end.

In a brutal Hell In A Cell match which almost took a turn after Finn Balor got busted open, Edge picked up a win over his long term rival with the mat stained with blood.
