8 of 12


WWE United States Championship Match
Rusev (c) vs. John Cena

Result: John Cena defeats Rusev via pinfall and wins the WWE United States Championship.

Rating: 3.8 out of 5 stars

Rob’s Take

So Rusev’s “undefeated streak” is over. John Cena is also the US Championship holder. Wow.

This was definitely better than their match from Fastlane. They pulled out plenty of great moves and put on a good 4-star match.

The question now is does Rusev and Lana split? How will Rusev be booked from here?

Mike’s Take

Big Match John delivered again, as he put on a good match to help Rusev end his streak in style.

There’s nothing wrong with losing to Cena in a big match at WrestleMania. Think I’m wrong? Look at where Bray Wyatt is one year later.

Even the finish wasn’t all that clean, setting Rusev up in an interesting angle in defeat.

Mike’s Rating: 3.75 out of 5 stars
