WrestleMania 35 kicked off in a huge way when Seth Rollins took on Brock Lesnar for the WWE Universal Championship to open the show. The match would take a while to begin as Lesnar would take liberties and beat down Lesnar repeatedly outside of the ring before the bell even rang.
Lesnar would inadvertently knock out the referee after the bell officially rang and Rollins would capitalize on this by low-blowing Lesnar and hitting him with three consecutive curb-stomps before pinning Lesnar to become the new Universal Champion.
This match kicked off WrestleMania in a huge way despite being a little lackluster after all of the build-up.
Rollins promised that he would be bringing the Universal Championship home to Monday Night Raw and he lived up to that promise. If the first Raw after WrestleMania wasn’t already a must-watch episode (it was) then it certainly became that with this Title win.
