It took forever and a day to get to this moment. But we’ve finally arrived at the Road to WWE WrestleMania’s end point – Arlington, Texas.
Tonight is the night that we all witness history-making moments, great matches and bonafide Superstars making their first WrestleMania moments happen. Will Roman Reigns pull off the big win over HHH and capture the title? Is this the last time we’ll see The Undertaker make his presence known at WrestleMania? Will we see new a Intercontinental, Divas and United States champion? All these questions will be answered this evening. Come hang out with us during the Kickoff Show and stay right after to see all the results/highlights from ‘Mania 32.
Once this show eventually gets underway (check out the links below to find out when), we’ll have everything here you need to know.
Kalisto (c) vs. Ryback (WWE United States Championship)
Winner: And still the US Champion, Kalisto!
Highlights: Kalisto hit the ramp in some new purple and gold gear with a new Dragon-esque mask. Not to be outdone, Ryback broke out some new gear as well (he made sure to bring out his new weightlifting belt). After the big introductions, Ryback stepped right to Kalisto. Kalisto locked in a quick headlock on Ryback, but Ryback quickly powered him down. Kalisto hit him with some elbow strikes and tried to throw him out the ring, but Ryback shoved him outside instead. When Kalisto re-entered the ring, Ryback shoulder shoved him to the mat. Kalisto ended up in the ring corner and managed to come off the top rope with a top-rope bulldog. On the outside, Ryback got put down with another high-flying move from Kalisto. This pissed off the big guy, who proceeded to launch Kalisto into the guard barrier several times.
Ryback threw Kalisto back into the ring. At first, Kalisto kicked at his bigger foe. But when Kalisto ran at Ryback, Ryback launched him high into the air and slammed him down hard. Ryback used his brute force to further beat down his much smaller opponent. Kalisto’s leg kicks seemed to do nothing but annoy Ryback all the while. Ryback landed a huge sitting Powerslam on Kalisto at one point. When Kalisto ended up on the ring apron, he cracked Ryback with an Enzuguri. Both men ended up on the top rope. Ryback held him for a big Superplex for a good while, but Kalisto countered and fell on top of him. Ryback quickly got back to his feet and landed his Meat Heat lariat. When Ryback went for his Shell Shock finisher, Kalisto countered him with a Tornado DDT.
Kalisto eventually got back into the fight with his comeback offense. After a nice series of moves, Ryback finally put his smaller foe down with a stiff Spinebuster. Ryback ended up eating the loss though when he ran head first into an exposed corner ring pad. Kalisto took advantage of this moment to drop Ryback with his Salida Del Sol finisher.
The Total Divas (Brie Bella, Paige, Natalya, Alicia Fox and Eva Marie) vs. B.A.D. & Blonde (Naomi, Tamina, Lana, Emma and Summer Rae) (10-Diva Tag Team Match)
Winners: The Total Divas (Brie Bella, Paige, Natalya, Alicia Fox and Eva Marie)!
Highlights: Fox and Alicia started things off with a lockup. Fox got in some stiff elbow strikes and a few kicks to Rae’s side. Rae got into a suplex counter exchange with Fox, which ended with Fox eating a DDT and almost a pin. Fox got back into the match with a spinning backbreaker on Rae afterwards. Once these opening moments came to a close, both teams got into the ring for some back and forth shouting. When we returned to the match, Paige and Emma began going at it. Emma landed a nice German Suplex to her former NXT rival. Emma began working over Paige in her team’s corner. Lana finally got tagged in for her official in-ring debut. She landed two devastating kicks to Paige and even mocked Brie with “YES!” chants. Once Tamina got tagged in, she landed a nice Snap Suplex on Paige and then locked her into a tight submission hold.
Paige fought hard to get back to her feet. Tamina stuffed her in the corner, which led to Naomi joining her. Natalya helped stop whatever was about to happen to Paige. All three women ended up on the outside, which led to Paige flying off the top rope and landing on on them all. Lana yelled at her teammates to get back in the match right after. Tamina helped stop Paige from tagging out, which then led to Emma working on her once again. Paige fought back though and slammed Paige’s head into the bottom turnbuckle. Once Paige finally tagged in Brie, Brie went crazy with her comeback offense on Naomi. Soon, all the Divas busted out their finishing moves on each other. It was pure pandemonium after each Diva got dropped. Brie and Naomi were the last women standing after all that madness concluded. Naomi caught Brie with a side leg kick, but missed her Split-Legged Moonsault attempt.
Brie looked to capitalize, but Lana pushed her off the top rope. Naomi almost locked in another move, but Brie got the submission victory when she locked in the YES! Lock. Afterwards, Nikki Bella came out to celebrate with her sister and her team.
The Usos (Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso) vs. The Dudley Boyz (Bubba Ray Dudley and D-Von Dudley)
Winner: The Usos (Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso)!
Highlights: The Usos broke out their usual Samoan dance routine, while The Dudleyz brought the house down with their fireworks display. As soon as the bell rang, both teams landed punches on each other. The Dudleyz got the quick advantage though after they dropped one of The Usos with a double Flapjack. Buh Buh kept control of Jimmy with his punch combo, but was unable to finish his last punch after eating a Superkick. Buh Buh tagged in D-Von, but a hot and fresh Jey went to work on him. Buh Buh stopped his comeback with a scoop slam, which led into Jey getting caught with a headbutt to the nether regions. The Dudleyz called for the tables, but dual Superkicks put them down. The Dudleyz eventually got back to their feet and landed their reverse neckbreaker combo. When they went for a 3D, Buh Buh got shoved out of the ring. D-Von took the L for his team after getting dropped with another Superkick. After the bell rang, The Dudley continued to beat down The Usos. They brought out the tables, but The Usos superkicked ’em before they got put through ’em. The Usos then went sky high and slammed through The Dudleyz with splashes through the tables.
