Brock Lesnar re-signs with WWE, rematch with Roman Reigns set

Vito begins by talking about the Universal Title match between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns. The match had absolutely no substance whatsoever and was a shallow and lazy performance by Lesnar in the main event of the biggest show of the year. But we will keep you posted with more information if we receive it. Successfully making that case undercut the support Lesnar might have otherwise gotten from die-hard WWE fans who didn't like Reigns- and make no mistake, anyone who ponies up the tall dollars for a WrestleMania ticket is a die-hard WWE fan.

The match ended with The Beast Incarnate raining down punishing elbows on Reigns, leaving him a bloody mess in the ring in one of the most violent WWE bouts in recent memory. WWE has done a phenomenal job building the legend of Brock Lesnar up to nearly mythical proportions - in fact, they may have done too good a job. More in line with what WWE wants. Reigns" victory and coronation had been telegraphed as early as summer 2017, when it was first revealed that WWE would build towards him vs. Lesnar at "Mania 34. In his fourth professional fight, Lesnar defeated UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture to become UFC heavyweight champion.

Lesnar's contract expired Sunday night after his win over Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 34 in the main event.

Lesnar won the match after hitting a fifth F-5 slam, successful retaining his championship and extending his incredible 372-day title reign. It wasn't a great match, but it didn't need to be.

Deutsche Bank Vice President Christian Sewing Set To Take Over Top Job
Handelsblatt said last month that Deutsche Bank remains "what it was when Cryan took the helm: a chronic patient". But the bank lost 735 million euros ($903 million) a year ago .

The marquee mixed tag team match pitting Kurt Angle and Ronda Rousey against Triple H and Stephanie McMahon was next and this match more than exceeded expectations.

And to make matters worse, Lesnar retained his title. Rousey looked every bit the part of a WWE star in front of a massive crowd, and handled the pressure of WrestleMania easily. In their first year of having two Royal Rumble matches - one for men and one for women - neither of the winners went on to win the title at WrestleMania.

Jinder Mahal was another surprise in New Orleans.

There was a large portion of the WWE Universe who thought the WWE Championship match between A.J. Styles and Shinsuke Nakamura should go on last, based on the fact they are arguably the two best wrestlers on the WWE roster.
