Roman Reigns held on and successfully defended the belt after surviving the challenge of the Triple Threat match. Not only did ‘The Tribal Chief’ survive, but he also managed to dominate his opponents at the end of the fight. 

Reigns delivered a crushing spear to Edge, after which he hit the latter’s head with a steel chair. He then dragged Edge’s incapacitated body over Daniel Bryan’s and pinned them both! This was one of the most dominant finishes to a WrestleMania main event and truly proved Roman’s superiority over the rest of the roster.

Roman Reigns was booed by the live crowd during his entrance

Edge and Daniel Bryan, both former World Champions, came into this match with a lot of momentum. Daniel Bryan spent the last month proving that he belonged in this fight and even managed to make Roman Reigns tap out during their match at Fastlane, but the official did not see it. He finally earned his spot in the match by beating Jey Uso on SmackDown.

‘The Rated-R Superstar’ earned his way through by winning the Royal Rumble from the #1 spot, challenging Reigns after doing so. He came in as the favorite and even managed to get the biggest pop from fans in the event as a whole.

Roman Reigns, in his huge heel role, was booed by the live crowd upon entering. His role as the ‘bad guy’ certainly did take off and fans wanted Edge to win anyhow. 

By the way he performed, everyone expected ‘The Ultimate Opportunist’ to pull off the win, but in the end, Roman showed everyone why he is the Champion.
