Carmella won after superkicking Logan off the ropes to the floor.

4. Braun Strowman won the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

They could not, of course, and Strowman eliminated them both to win the battle royal. Watch the highlights here.
WWE WrestleMania 35 Results:
– Alexa Bliss opened the show by introducing Hulk Hogan, who made a joke about how he would call the arena the wrong thing (“The Silverdome”) and then actually called it the wrong thing (“MetLife Center”). Hogan was almost immediately interrupted by Paul Heyman, who said that if his client wasn’t going on last, he wasn’t going to wait around all night. That led directly into the Universal Championship match.
5. Universal Championship Match: Seth Rollins defeated Brock Lesnar (c). Lesnar brutally attacked Rollins before the match, throwing him around the ringside area and into the announce tables. Rollins hit a low blow on Lesnar during a ref bump, then hit three Stomps to win the match. Watch the highlights here.
