Winner and NEW World Champion: Randy Orton

Eh, it was there.  This one never really seemed to get going.

Universal Title Match: Bill Goldberg vs Brock Lesnar

Okay, let's see what we're in for with this one.  Bell rings, Lesnar goes behind Goldberg, German suplex.  Then again, and a third time.  Goldberg hits a spear, then another.  Oh man.  Lesnar rolls out to the floor, Goldberg goes after him, spear through the barricade.  Goldberg picks Lesnar up and dumps him into the ring, he goes for the Jackhammer, but Lesnar pops Goldberg up for the F5, Goldberg slips out and hits a FOURTH spear.  Goldberg picks Lesnar up for the Jackhammer, gets him up and hits it, but Lesnar kicks out at 2.  Thank god.  Now Goldberg has a  look of disbelief on his face, but he sets for another spear, Lesnar leapfrogs, and Goldberg goes sailing right into the corner.  Lesnar with another German suplex. Then another.  And another.  And another.  Lesnar hits #8.  Then #9.  Goldberg is in trouble now, and the fans are calling for #10, and Lesnar delivers.  Lesnar stands over the fallen form of Goldberg, hoists him up, and hits the F5.  Lesnar covers, and FINALLY pins Goldberg.

Winner and NEW Universal Champion: Brock Lesnar

I cannot express how happy I am to see this finish.  Lesnar is again the champion, and in all likelihood, Bill Goldberg is never setting foot in a wrestling ring again.

Smackdown Women's Title Match: Alexa Bliss vs Becky Lynch vs Carmela vs Natalya vs Naomi vs Mickie James

All the girls go at it off the bell, some of them go outside and Alexa and Carmela give Naomi a snap suplex on the floor while Mickie and Becky go at it in the ring.  Becky knocks Mickie to the floor, but James Ellsworth grabs Becky's leg and allows Carmela to get a handstand headscissors on Becky.  Carmela and Alexa get in each other's faces, and Alexa grabs Carmela by the throat, chokesweeps her, then punts her in the ribs.  Becky is on fire now hammering Natalya and Carmela, then suplexing them both.  James Ellsworth is in the ring and gets in Becky's face, but Becky gives him a Becksploder.  Mickie nails Becky, Alexa dumps Mickie to the floor, Nattie comes in and Naomi sunset flips Nattie and Becky for 2.  Carmela rolls Nattie up, then Nattie puts both Carmela and Naomi in the Sharpshooter.  Mickie comes in and cleans Nattie's clock with a spinning boot, then Mickie gets the implant DDT on Becky, but Carmela breaks up the cover and superkicks Mickie.  Alexa is in and it's her and Naomi, who hits the Rearview.  Alexa goes to the floor and Naomi wipes everyone out with a dive.  Alexa and Naomi get back in the ring, and Naomi gets a modified Anaconda Vice to force Alexa to tap out.

Winner and NEW Smackdown Women's Champion: Naomi

Nice return for Naomi in her hometown, but not much to this match.  I get the sense they might be pressed for time!

No DQ/No Countout/No Holds Barred: The Undertaker vs Roman Reigns

The bell rings, and we're off: Undertaker unloads on Roman and dumps him to the floor.  Roman is right back in, and Undertaker lays him out again and dumps him back to the floor.  Roman looks a bit unsure of himself at this point, and takes a moment to compose himself on the floor before snapping Undertaker's neck down on the top rope.  He comes back in and they trade right hands before Roman clotheslines Undertaker to the floor.  Undertaker drags Roman under the bottom rope and unloads on him with a headbutt, then whips him into the steps.  Back in the ring and Roman hits a Samoan drop.  Back out to the floor and Undertaker goes back to work on Roman, but gets rammed into the post before eating a Drive By from Roman.  They go back in the ring and trade shots, but Undertaker no-sells, nails Roman, and hits Snake Eyes and a running big boot.  Undertaker with a legdrop for 2.  Back out to the floor where Undertaker counters another Drive By attempt with a right hand to the face, and then counters a Superman Punch attempt with a chokeslam onto the announce table.  Undertaker and Roman wind up on top of the table, but Roman spears Undertaker off the English announce table and through the Spanish table behind him.  Roman climbs back in the ring and the fans boo him, but then the Undertaker sits up and climbs back in.  Roman puts the boots to the Undertaker, then hits a series of clotheslines in the corner.  Roman climbs up for corner punches, but sure enough, Undertaker grabs him and hits the Last Ride for 2.  Roman gets a chair, but Undertaker gets ahold of it and repeatedly drills Roman with it.  Undertaker goes for a chokeslam, but Roman rolls to the floor.  Undertaker goes after him, but Roman goes back in the ring, Undertaker follows him in and Roman connects with two Superman punches.  An attempt at a third ends with Undertaker goozling Roman and chokeslamming him on the chair.  Undertaker picks Roman up and hits the Tombstone, makes a cover, and Roman is out at 2.  Roman reverses another Tombstone attempt...but loses him, so he hits another Superman punch instead.  Roman sets for the spear, and he connects.  He makes a cover, but gets caught in Hell's Gate.  Roman gets his foot on the ropes to force a break, so Undertaker crawls to grab the chair...but Roman is up and steps on the chair.  Now Roman takes the chair and absolutely unloads on the Undertaker with it, hitting about half a dozen chairshots, then yells at Undertaker to stay down.  Undertaker won't, so Roman spears him for 2.  Roman can't beleive it, but he waits for Undertaker to get back up and hits another spear.  Roman makes a cover, but the Undertaker still kicks out at 2.  Roman can't believe it, but he stares Undertaker down as he waits for him to get up again, and connects with a fifth Superman punch.  Roman waits and watches as the Undertaker tries to sit up, but can't.  Roman confidently walks over to the Undertaker and waits for him to get to his knees, and the Undertaker isn't quitting yet.  Undertaker eats a few more punches and another spear, and that's it.

Winner: Roman Reigns

Undertaker suffers only his second ever loss at Wrestlemania, and Roman earns the biggest win of his career.  Roman leaves, and we go back to the Undertaker laying prone in the ring as the fans chant "thank you Taker" at him.  He finally sits up, we see replays of the finish of the match, then we come back to the ring where Undertaker has his coat and hat back on, and he takes a look around at the crowd as his music plays.  He starts to leave, then pauses, comes back to the middle of the ring, and takes his gloves off, leaving them in the middle of the ring.  The fans chant "thank you Taker" again as he takes his coat off, folds it up and leaves it in the ring, then takes the hat off and leaves it on top of the rest of the pile.  Finally the Undertaker leaves the ring and walks up the ramp, stopping to pump the first in the air one last time.  The lights go out, the bells toll, and we call it a night.
