But did the Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar match live up to the expectations? Unfortunately, the answer is no. The main event of the so-called Biggest Match of All-time ended within 15minutes.

Wrestling fans stormed to Twitter and slammed WWE for hyping WrestleMania 38 main event!

‘Head of the Table’ Roman Reigns picked up the ultimate victory to become the WWE Unified Champion. He took home both the WWE and Universal Championship. Even though the company booked the match as the biggest of all time, wrestling fans did not seem to enjoy the WrestleMania 38 main event at all.

“A match where two superstars are spamming nothing but finishers is boring,” @Biladinh10_ wrote.

Some wrestling fans imagined Pat McAfee vs. Austin Theory at WrestleMania 38 was better than the main event.

In addition, fans also preferred Logan Paul & The Miz’s battle against The Mysterious (Rey & Dominik Mysterio) over the main event.

The WWE Universe also believed that The EST of WWE Bianca Belair vs. The Man Becky Lynch lived beyond expectations. However, a ‘Champion vs. Champion’ match should have lasted longer.

“It’s insane how the excitement of a Mania full of great matches goes away like this. Worse match of the weekend, and even I wanted Reigns to win,” @JJC_RM wrote.

While some fans took shots at the WWE creative team, they felt that the company’s writers have become lazy.
