WWE WrestleMania 36: Highlights, Results & Recap

Brock Lesnar

WWE WrestleMania 36 is in the books after two nights of intense action at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.

For the first time ever, WWE split WrestleMania into two nights with nine scheduled bouts on each card. While the atmosphere wasn’t the same as a result of the events being behind closed doors, we still saw some big moments in what could prove to be one of the last shows WWE puts on for quite some time.

Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross def. Kabuki Warriors to win Women’s Tag Team Championship

While CM Punk made a brief cameo in the Firefly Fun House match via past footage, the big MMA stories of the WrestleMania double-header came with Brock Lesnar and Shayna Baszler both being beaten on the grandest stage of them all.

Next year, it wouldn’t be all too surprising to see former UFC star Matt Riddle make his WrestleMania debut – but for now, he continues to thrive down in NXT.
