WWE World Heavyweight Championship Match
Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Roman Reigns

Result: Seth Rollins cashes in Money in the Bank, defeats Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar via pinfall to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Rob’s Take

Just seconds in, Lesnar put a pounding on Reigns. The German Suplex and F-5 early on looked devastating.

From there, Lesnar continued to crush Reigns. All the former Shield man could do was hit a few Superman Punches and a couple of Spears, but none of them could do the job.

When Reigns and Lesnar were both down and out in the ring, we heard the music of Seth Rollins! The former Mr. Money in the Bank came running down to the ring and cashed in to make this a triple-threat match. He Curb Stomped Lesnar almost immediately. Then, just as Lesnar was about to hit Rollins with an F-5, Reigns speared Lesnar. This left an uninjured Rollins plenty of room to hit the Curb Stomp on a beaten Reigns and win the match!

I never thought WWE would have the guts to have a Money in the Bank cash in to end the show. Kudos to Vince McMahon and whoever else made the call – they just created an all-time great WrestleMania moment that will get people talking. That’s the goal, right?

Mike’s Take

Before the final minute, this match can only be viewed through the same lens as Lesnar’s match with John Cena at WWE SummerSlam. While not a true 4-star match, it felt like one in the moment.

The final minute made this a 5-star match, as Rollins provided us with his second wild moment of the night.

The most exciting and unpredictable ending in WrestleMania history.
