This was the most awaited match on the card. Not only did Bryan get another shot at the title, but Edge was the special enforcer.

Roman Reigns did not show any mercy to Daniel Bryan, and neither did the latter drop any opportunity to get back at the champion.

Daniel Bryan tried to lock Roman Reigns in the Yes Lock several times, but almost every time, Reigns broke out of it.

At one point, Bryan transitioned to a Yes Lock, but Jey Uso entered the ring and delivered a superkick each to Bryan and Edge. Following this, he grabbed a steel chair, but Bryan put him down with a running knee.

Bryan grabbed the chair to hit Reigns, but the latter moved and the chair hit Edge. Moments later, Bryan found himself at the end of a Superman Punch. However, Bryan counter-attacked with a spear and then a Yes Lock. Roman Reigns started to tap out.

Edge stopped it from happening by hitting both Bryan and Reigns with a chair before walking off.

A new referee arrived as Roman Reigns covered Daniel Bryan for the pinfall count.

Winner: Roman Reigns defeated Daniel Bryan via pinfall to retain the title.

It’s possible WWE will convert the WrestleMania match between Roman Reigns and Edge into a triple threat match.

Randy Orton vs. Alexa Bliss

This match, as expected, was booked for the return of The Fiend.

It started with Orton trying to attack Bliss, but she moved out of the way, and he crashed into the ring-post. After coming back to the ring, Bliss hit him with a fireball. Before he could do anything, a burned hand emerged from the hole and held onto Orton’s ankles while The Fiend emerged from the canvas.

The Fiend hit Randy Orton with a Sister Abigail, and Bliss covered Orton for the pinfall count.

Winner: Alexa Bliss defeated Randy Orton via pinfall.

Drew McIntyre vs. Sheamus

McIntyre and Sheamus put up a brutal fight. The fight started with kendo sticks, and Sheamus used the sticks to optimal capacity by thrashing McIntyre with it.

However, McIntyre returned the favor and ran the kendo stick into Sheamus’ eye. However, this is not where the brutality ended.

The match left the ring and went to the stands with the WWE ThunderDome screens. ‘

The Scottish Psychopath tried to get Sheamus back inside the ring for the pinfall but failed. He put Sheamus through the screens before hitting a claymore for the win.

Winner: Drew McIntyre defeated Sheamus via pinfall.

Braun Strowman vs. Elias

This match was originally supposed to be between Strowman and Shane McMahon. However, McMahon injured his knee while training, and WWE booked Elias as the replacement.

Strowman had to deal with Elias inside the ring and Jaxson Ryker outside. Ryker distracted Strowman long enough for Elias to hit an elbow drop from the top rope to pin Strowman, but ‘The Mountain Among Men’ kicked out.

He retaliated with a running Powerslam and pinned Elias.

Winner: Braun Strowman defeated Elias via pinfall.

Seth Rollins vs. Shinsuke Nakamura

One Superstar did not entirely dominate the match. Both of them traded jabs back and forth. However, Nakamura tried to end the match faster, and that gave Rollins the opportunity to pin him.

Rollins delivered an elbow, followed with a kick to Nakamura’s neck before covering for the pinfall.

Winner: Seth Rollins defeated Shinsuke Nakamura via pinfall.

WWE United States Championship: Matt Riddle vs. Mustafa

Mustafa Ali dominated the former part of the match when he continued to target Matt Riddle’s neck and shoulder. However, Riddle turned the match around with a series of big moves such as the powerbomb, Floating Bro, and others.

The match ended with Matt Riddle delivering a Bro Derek from the second rope.

Winner: Matt Riddle defeated Mustafa Ali via pinfall to retain the title.

After the match, Ali tried to show his dominance over The Retribution. Reckoning and Slapjack walked off while T-Bar and Mace flattened Ali with a double choke bomb.

WWE Intercontinental Championship: Big E vs. Apollo Crews

Big E primarily dominated this match, but his attempt to rush the victory led to Crews finding opportunities to counterattack.

The ending of the match wasn’t smooth, and Big E attempted to pin Apollo Crews multiple times. He finally pinned him for the win.

Winner: Big E defeated Apollo Crews via pinfall to retain the title.

After the match, Crews thrashed Big E with several slams and stood over the champion.

Women’s Tag Team Championship: Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler vs. Sasha Banks & Bianca Belair

Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler started off rocky whereas Belair and Banks worked together like a well-oiled machine.

Banks had Baszler locked in the Banks Statement while Belair tried to prevent Jax from breaking the hold. Unfortunately for Belair, Jax threw her onto Banks. This led to a brief confrontation between Banks and Belair, which gave Baszler the chance to pin Banks for the victory.
