    WHAT A NIGHT!

    It was quite a night for fans hoping to see their favorites get the win, as a host of popular wrestlers got their moment to shine.

    Seth Rollins slayed Brock Lesnar to capture the WWE Universal Title.

    Kofi Kingston defeated Daniel Bryan to win the WWE Championship.

    Finn Balor bested Bobby Lashley to reclaim the WWE Intercontinental Title.

    And Becky Lynch beat Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair to win the WWE Raw and SmackDown Women's Titles.

    All in all, a good night for the fan favorites at WrestleMania.

    'THE MAN' IS NOW THE CHAMP-CHAMP!

    After an epic triple-threat match in the night's main event, Ireland's Becky Lynch walked away with both the Raw and SmackDown Women's Championship belts after a controversial pinfall of Ronda Rousey.

    Initially, it looked as if Lynch had pinned Rousey's shoulders to the mat, but replays clearly showed that at least one of the former UFC champion's shoulders was well off the canvas as the referee started his count.

    It left Rousey livid at the decision as a clearly elated Lynch celebrated with the two belts.

    The recriminations will no doubt follow as Rousey looks to get revenge on a finish she believes never was.

    'THE DEMON' SLAYS LASHLEY

    It took Finn Balor's 'Demon' persona just over four minutes to to defeat WWE Intercontinental Champion and man-mountain Bobby Lashley and capture the title.

    It wasn't all plain sailing, as he took a huge spear from Lashley while precariously perched on the ring apron.

    But Balor was still able to get the win as he won the Intercontinental Title for the second time in his career.

    FAREWELL KURT ANGLE

    Kurt Angle is a bona-fide wrestling legend. An Olympic gold medallist, he joined the WWE and became one of the biggest-stars in the business, as well as one of the most talented performers in the history of the WWE.

    At WrestleMania he wrestled for the last time as he lost out to Baron Corbin in his farewell match. But the result didn't dampen the spirit of his fans in the stands, who serenaded him with their traditional "You suck!" chants in time with his entrance music as it played for a final time as he headed up the ramp to return to the locker room.

    TRIPLE H GETS HELP, THEN GETS THE WIN 

    It took a sledgehammer and a handy dose of distraction from wrestling legend Ric Flair, but Triple H finally got the better of the returning Batista in their no-holds-barred grudge match.

    The action was slow, and the match seemed to drag on somewhat, but the high spots were certainly high ones, as the pair put each other through the ringer in a punishing display that saw pliers, nose-rings and sledgehammers put to good use.

    The ring steps and ringside commentary tables came in handy, too.

    CENA TURNS BACK THE CLOCK

    An ego-stroking musical interlude featuring Elias was interrupted by a black-and-white montage of legendary baseball player Babe Ruth famously calling his shot in the 1932 World Series.

    The fans in the arena weren't too sure what to expect next, but they went berserk when John Cena, in his original persona as a rapper, came striding down the ramp to confront the wannabe rock & roll star.

    And, after some verbal jabs from Cena, he then put his hands on Elias, knocking him down and hitting him with 'The Five-Knuckle Shuffle.'

    The fans, who previously used to chant "Cena sucks!" at the veteran performer, were much more accepting of Cena in his old guise as he left Elias on his backside inside the ring as he strode back up the ramp.

    THE BIG DOG IS BACK

    In October last year, Roman Reigns, real name Joe Anoa'i, announced during a WWE Raw show that he had been diagnosed with leukemia.

    After taking time away from the ring to battle the illness, he announced he was in remission during a return to TV screens in February.

    And at WrestleMania tonight, he put the seal on that return with victory over 'The Scottish Psychopath' Drew McIntyre.

    WELL, THAT DIDN'T TAKE LONG...

    It's fair to say Samoa Joe is built more for comfort than for speed, but that didn't stop him totally dominating Rey Mysterio Jr to win in double-quick time.

    Joe slapped on his signature submission, the Coquina Clutch, to defeat Mysterio in just 55 seconds to claim the fastest victory of the night.

    THE PEOPLE'S CHAMPION

    If there was one WWE superstar the fans were hoping to see capture a title at WrestleMania, it was Kofi Kingston. And the 11-year veteran got the win his fans so dearly wanted to see after an epic battle with Daniel Bryan.

    A spinning super kick got the job done for Kingston, who was crowned the WWE Champion as his teammates from The New Day, Big E and Xavier Woods, along with his two sons, jumped into the ring to celebrate with the new champ.

    And Woods and Big E also made sure that their teammate got the prize he deserved by throwing away Bryan's bizarre wood-carved belt and instead presented a brand new leather and gold WWE Championship belt to Kingston.

    AND NEW!

    After a breathless, back-and-forth battle for the belts against champions Bayley & Sasha Banks, plus the teams of Beth Phoenix & Natalya and Nia Jax and Tamina, the Australian duo 'The IIconics' claimed the WWE Women's Tag Team Championship as Billie Kay pinned Bayley to secure the shock win.
