Roman Reigns vs Drew McIntyre

They go toe-to-toe right at the start, and Roman hits a Samoan drop for 2.  Drew with a spinebuster and a jackknife rollup for 2.  Roman guillotine legdrops Drew, and they go to the floor.  Drew lays Roman out with a headbutt, but Roman dumps Drew to the apron and knocks him to the floor.  Drew dodges the driveby and hammers him with right hands before suplexing him off the apron to the floor.  Drew with the inverted Alabama Slam for 2.  Drew puts Roman on the top and yells at him that he should have said no, but Roman knocks him backward into the Tree of Woe.  Roman starts to get his footing, but Drew sits up and hits a spider suplex!  Nice!  Drew gets in Roman's face and yells that he gave him a chance to get out of this, but he broke the Shield, he broke Roman's brothers, and he goes for the underhook DDT, but Roman fights out.  He slaps Roman, and that just fires the former champion up, as he takes Drew's head off with a clothesline and then knocks him to the floor.  Roman with the driveby, rolls Drew back into the ring, but Drew dodges the Superman Punch.  Roman hits a second attempt, and the spear puts Drew down for 3.

Winner: Roman Reigns

Fun big man match, Drew and Roman both looked good even if this felt a bit short.

Elias is here with a drum set, and he whales for a bit.  Then he is at a piano, and he plays that for a bit.  Then he's in the ring with his guitar, and he says he'll do something that's never been done before, so he and his other two...Eliases?  Eliai?  Well, they do a three man jam.  It's not quite the Mankind/Dude Love/Cactus Jack promo from Raw at MSG in 97, but it was okay.  He tells them to take a bow, and now he's going to take it from here.  He starts playing Seven Nation Army to go with the fans' chanting.  Clever.  He says wait until you see the guys playing the triangle, bass, and harpsichord, because this will be the greatest thing in Wrestlemania history.  He says WWE stands for Walk With Elias and starts to play when a video appears on screen showing the famous day Babe Ruth called his shot in the 1932 World Series.  Out comes John Cena to his Thugonomics theme, coming to interrupt Elias for the second year in a row.  He says Elias is standing in the ring when John Cena about to turn heel, then he proceeds to drop some dope rhymes on Elias, asserting that he feels like he's watching one of his movies because the whole thing sucks.  Elias says he wore out his welcome, and there won't be no AA tonight, but he's about to get an FU.  Cena does the Five Knuckle Shuffle, pumps his sneakers, and hits the FU.  Word life, b*****s.

Shawn Michaels joins the announce team for our next match...

No Holds Barred/Triple H's career on the line: Triple H vs Batista

Batista gets an awesome entrance from out of a caravan of black sedans and escorted by an entourage of security guys in black suits with sunglasses.  Triple H gets his usual understated entrance, this time on a Skeletormobile with a video of an 80s arcade racing game on the screen.  They start brawling right from the start, just slugging on each other, then going to the outside to do it some more.  Batista rams Triple H up and over the barricade, but Triple H grabs a toolbox and uses it to bash Batista in the shoulder.  Triple H grabs a chain and STARTS WHIPPING BATISTA WITH IT.  His agent must be losing his mind.  Triple H rams Batista into the steps, then flips the top steps off and tosses the chain into the ring, then gets a wrench and squeezes Batista's hand with it, then uses the wrench to trap Batista's arm on the ground so he can stomp it.  Triple H dumps Batista in the ring, tosses a chair in after him, and hammers Batista across the back with it.  Triple H puts a chair over Batista's throat and sits on it, then takes a pair of needlenose pliers, says "That's a nice nose ring!" and uses the pliers to grab Batista's nose ring and YANK.  Batista rolls to the floor and collapses to the ground while Triple H shows off the nose ring.  He casually grabs the chain and comes after Batista, who finally is able to pick Triple H and drop him on the broadcast table.  Batista takes a moment to collect himself, then picks Triple H up and deposits him on the table a second time.  Now Batista has the chair, massages Triple H with it, and starts unloading the heavy artillery.  Batista hits a Samoan drop for 2, then we go back to the floor where Batista puts a section of steps on the broadcast table, stands on top, and goes for a Batista Bomb, but Triple H backdrops Batista to the adjacent table, and both men are down.  Triple H is up first, does a crotch chop, and spears Batista through the table and both crash to the floor.  Hunter reaches under the ring and grabs the sledgehammer, and actually comes out with two of them.  He leaves one sitting under the apron and stalks Batista with the other, but Batista spears Triple H and covers for 2.  He goes for the Batista Bomb, Triple H tries to drill him with the hammer, but he doesn't connect in time, and Batista drops him for 2.  Batista brings another segment of steps into the ring, puts Triple H on the top rope, climbs up, Triple H slips out underneath, and powerbombs Batista onto the steps.  Triple H hits the Pedigree and gets 2.  Triple H has the sledgehammer, but Batista nails him and hits a DDT onto the steps.  Ric Flair comes down to ringside, hands a sledgehammer to Triple H, and gets in Batista's face.  He distracts Batista long enough for Triple H to springboard off the steps with a hammer shot, then hit the Pedigree for the win.

Winner: Triple H

Great brawl, and great moment at the end with Ric Flair's appearance.  Triple H and his mentor share an embrace on the floor and look at the fallen Batista in the ring.  Great moment.

We go to the back where Alexa Bliss tells us it's time to get down to business, and brings in the B Team to show off Daniel Bryan t-shirts available now on WWEShop.com.  They dance and sing, and Ron Simmons comes in to say damn.
