2021 WWE Wrestlemania: Results, match of the year contenders emerge

Fighters, Roman Reigns and Cesaro have clashed in a major encounter staged by the WWE WrestleMania on Sunday.

Both men put in an incredible show in what was rated as a Match of the Year fight.

The Roman Reigns and Cesaro match was action-packed and Cesaro frustrated his opponent early with some slick wrestling tricks, scoring multiple early pinfall attempts before Reigns finally bailed from the ring and retreated to Paul Heyman to regroup.

Cesaro’s injured arm gave out on a Neutralizer and an attempt at a springboard uppercut was met by a Superman punch from Reigns for another near fall.

Reigns again locked in the guillotine and Cesaro nearly slammed his way out again but got pulled right back in. Cesaro continued to fight but eventually was choked out cold.

Roman Reigns defeated Cesaro in the Grade A match via submission to retain the title.

However, in what appeared to be a downer of the evening, the zombie-infused clash between Damian Priest and the Miz came out as one of the lowest points for WWE in the past ten years.

The match between Damian Priest and The Miz also ended in favour of the former who also won via pinfall.

In the other matches, Sheamus defeated Ricochet through pinfall.

The SmackDown Tag Team Championship was staged between Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler vs. Rey and Dominik Mysterio.

Rey and Dominik Mysterio were victorious over Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler also via pinfall to win the titles.

For the SmackDown Women’s Championship between Bianca Belair vs. Bayley, Bayley had some early struggles dealing with the strength and speed of Belair but defeat via pinfall to retain the title.

The WWE Championship clash between Bobby Lashley, Drew McIntyre and Braun Strowman saw Strowman going at both opponents immediately, leading McIntyre and Lashley to form a brief alliance to try and shut the biggest man in the match down.

However, Bobby Lashley defeated Drew McIntyre and Braun Strowman via pinfall to retain the title.
