WrestleMania 38 was the biggest premium live event of the eventful year of 2022. Wrestling and spectacle were in abundance in this two night event and it was an event that will be remembered for a long time.
WrestleMania 38 featured several mega matches and special appearances, and received widespread critical acclaim. Many called it one of the best ‘manias’ of the modern era, and we can proudly say that we are in that boat. Indeed, this year’s show of shows has big shoes to fill, and we’re still three months away.
The main event that graced The Grandest Stage of Them All is the match that fans talk about the most. There were two of them on the 2022 schedule, as it was a two-night show. If you don’t remember them, read on to refresh your memory.
The opening night of WrestleMania 38 was main-evented by Kevin Owens against the legendary ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin in the latter’s first match in 19 years. The next day, Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar fought over the rights to be called the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.
What happened during the main events of WrestleMania 38?
Kevin Owens vs. ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin and Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar were two mega matches that were given a chance to headline WrestleMania 38.
Due to Owens’ constant taunting of Austin, Austin agreed to wrestle him nineteen years after their retirement match. The two Masters of Stunner fought a chaotic and entertaining contest that saw them brawling all over the place. In the end, the Texas rattlesnake won.
The following day, what WWE billed as the ‘biggest WrestleMania main event ever’ took place. Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar feuded with both the Universal Championship and the WWE Championship on the line. The two Titans traded haymakers and near-falls for several days, both refusing to go down.
Paul Heyman’s interference ultimately proved to be the difference. Rance took advantage of this and took the three count by giving Lesnar a spear. In doing so, he closed out night two of the show, with the final money shot seeing him raise both world titles on his shoulders.
