However, in a controversial finish, Cena had Theory tapping to the STF but the referee was knocked out. Theory capitalized on the opportunity and delivered a low blow and hit his finisher to retain the title.

The WrestleMania Showcase match was next and all four teams delivered a classic tag team match. With a lot of stunning moments throughout the contest, the fans were up on their feet as the Street Profits ended up winning the match.

Next up was the father vs son match between Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio. It was a back-and-forth match-up that saw Judgement Day and Legado del Fantasma get involved. However, the telling contribution was from Bad Bunny, who prevented Dominik from using a chain to his advantage. Rey capitalized and got the win to send the fans into raptures.

The SmackDown Women’s Championship match was up next and it surely lived up to the hype. Rhea Ripley and Charlotte brought their A-game to the fight, with both women forced to dig deep to get one over the other.
