Editor’s Note: The full recap of Night 1 of WrestleMania 38 can be found here.

After the return of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, a signature win for Bianca Belair and another memorable WrestleMania win for Charlotte Flair, WrestleMania 38 continues Sunday night with plenty of big matches.

Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar will take center stage in the main event in a match to determine the undisputed WWE Champion.

In a fatal 4-way match for the women’s gold.

There are also a number of unique contestants on Sunday night, including Pat McAfee stepping out of the broadcast booth to face The Austin Theory, Johnny Knoxville trying to get the best of Sami Zayn in a “Anything Goes” match, and Bobby Lashley. Faced with Omos. This could be the first major Test for the tallest man in WWE.

Find out about how we got here with our Lapse Fan Guide and recap every match as it happens.

Match On: Edge vs AJ Styles


Women’s Tag Team Championship: Naomi & Sasha Banks def. Carmella and Queen Zelina (c), Liv Morgan and Rhea Ripley and Natalya and Shayna Baszler

Sasha Banks pinned Carmella and her shiny mask to win The Boss and Naomi the Women’s Tag Team Titles. The finisher was unique as Naomi held Carmella high as Banks came off the ropes, did a somersault and landed a codebreaker on Carmella. This is the third time Banks has won the tag title.

This is what we usually see in four-way tag matches. There really wasn’t a through line to finish, but there were some fun spots along the way. Note: Morgan and Ripley deliver power bombs from opposite corners as six other contestants were on the turnbuckle.

Plus a nod to Rhea Ripley’s eye makeup, which made her look like she possessed Dark Dimension’s dormmmoo.

What will happen next: Rani and Carmella will get a comeback match for the belt, but it could be the start of a productive reign for Naomi and Sasha.

Anything Goes Match – Johnny Knoxville def. Sami Zaini

If you’re going to perform the star of “Jack’s Forever” at WrestleMania, it’s best to make it as absurd as possible. The mission was accomplished, as Knoxville defeated Zayn in a match that foreshadowed the injuries to Knoxville’s career.

Knoxville, aka “The South Knoxville Strong Guy,” arrived in a red-and-white superhero costume with protective goggles—which we immediately realized was in order to protect him from the fire-fighting explosion that occurred in the first two minutes of the match. Were.

A stop sign, trash can, garbage lid, a crutch, a cookie sheet, a table broken by an Exploder suplex by Zayn, an air horn used by Knoxville to stop a helluva kick, Chris at a “party” Boy” Pontius Thong appears from under the ring before slamming Zayn off the We Man body and then takes a kick straight in the face, a bowling ball is propelled into Zayn’s groin, followed by one with a prosthetic leg. The boot reaches the same spot, a Taser and a giant slap in the arm that was, as Pat McAfee put it, “the size of We Man.”

For better or worse, it was the match everything,

Knoxville won, and the finish was like a “Jack’s Forever” deleted scene. At the start of the match, Zayn found a table under the ring with a few dozen mouse traps sticking out. It became “Chekhov’s table full of rat traps”, as it was involved in his eventual demise. Zayn temporarily climbed to the top rope, as Knoxville had previously triggered the ring post pyro to scare him. Knoxville BBQ reached Sami’s most sensitive areas with a pair of tongs, and threw Sami on the mouse trap table above.

With the help of Jackass’s crew, Knoxville brought a giant mouse trap into the ring. According to McAfee, he teased Zayn, who knocked down “where the cheese goes.” Knoxville had some difficulty triggering the gimmick trap, but eventually bounced it over Sami’s chest for an absolutely hilarious pin.

What will happen next: Hopefully Knoxville as the champion of a revived and comedy-focused WWE hardcore division, but maybe not. For Zayn, these comic heights will be hard to overcome – what about the challenge of securing something more serious and an intercontinental title?

Bobby Lashley def. OMO

This match had the weakest build of anything on the two-night card and was delivered as such, perhaps in a way more confusing than anticipated.

Lashley played the role of the underdog in the match, as Omos was positioned as the physically superior competitor. Which, again, would have made for a compelling story if it weren’t for the fact that the sensitive bicep standing in front of him nicknamed “The Almighty” is anything but a physical underdog.

After a few minutes of effort, Lashley recovered from a bear hug to deliver a no-margin-for-error suplex on 7-foot-3 Omos, and then delivered a spear and finally a pin.

What will happen next: Bobby Lashley leaves the match looking really strong and powerful, which we already knew about Bobby Lashley. This loss gives Omos absolutely no advantage, which makes the outcome even more curious. Why not get Lashley some power spots to keep his reputation alive but give Omos a win to build up his pace? Unless there’s momentum to build, that is?

Raw Tag-Team Championship: RK-Bro (Matt Riddle and Randy Orton) (c) def. Street Profits and Alpha Academy

The opening match of Night 2 made the Dallas crowd “This is awesome!” The chanting frenzy, as a wild no-DQ, no-countout match reached an incredible crescent.

With Orton down and the ring clear, Montez Ford prepared for a top-rope finisher. Riddle returned from outside, jumped over the turnbuckle and delivered a top-rope RKO at Ford, who was thrown out of the ring after impact. With Riddle after the maneuver, Chad Gable of Alpha Academy climbed the ropes to eliminate Riddle and was caught midflight by Orton for an RKO. Orton pinned Gable to end the match and retain the title with RK-Bro.

It was a really fun, wild, spot-fest between three teams with unique chemistry. Riddle and Orton pull off a synchronized ropes-assisted DDT. The Profits pulled off a sky-high blockbuster on Gable. But my favorite “wrestling argument” spot in the match was when Dawkins pinned Riddle and Otis broke the pin with a body-slash on Dawkins’ back. Angelo, my man: You just added 330 pounds to your pin! just stay there!

After the match, The Profits returned to the ring for a Red Singles Cup celebration with RK-Bro, inviting 21-year-old WWE rookie Gable Stevenson to join them in the ring. Although …

What will happen next: … Chad Gable returns to the ring and slaps the cup in the hand of Stevenson. Chad told him “Shoosh!” Stevenson suplexed him. And now we have our first fight, between two former Olympians. As far as RK-Bro is concerned, they could have used a new feud after this three-way dance.

Triple H opened the show

Former WWE star Triple H gave the traditional “Welcome… to WrestleMania!” Started the show with There was thunder, but his surprise appearance to open Knight 2 was more poignant than that. After drenching in cheers from an appreciative crowd – chanting “Thank You, Hunter” – the man known as “The Game” put his shoes in the middle of the ring, marking the end of his in-ring career. was a sign.

Triple H first made the announcement to Stephen A. Smith on ESPN’s First Take. The 52-year-old, 14-time world champion first made an appearance at WrestleMania Weekend on Saturday at NXT Stand and Deliver, joining Tommaso Ciampa on stage after losing to Tony D’Angelo in what is expected to be Ciampa’s final NXT match.
