Hail to the 'Head of the Table'.

The 'Tribal Chief' himself, Roman Reigns.

After a grueling match against a resilient WWE Champion Big E, the 'Head of the Table' speared his way to victory and once again won for team Smackdown. Team Raw pretty much dominated and claimed victory for their respective matches.

The 'Architect' Seth 'Freakin' Rollins was the sole survivor for team Raw. The 'EST of the WWE' Bianca Belair represented Team Raw as the solo survivor for the Women's Elimination match.

RK-Bro (Randy Orton & Matt Riddle) successfully defended their brand with an impact by Orton's RKO out of nowhere on Jimmy Uso. The Rock's 25th Battle Royal ended with the 'Colossal' Omos eliminating 12 men in a dominating fashion.

The first match of the night started when Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch, also known as 'Big Time Becks', battled against her rival, Smackdown Women's Champion, 'The Queen' Charlotte Flair. From being longtime friends to broken friendship to bitter rivals.

The long-tenured rivalry between two of the greatest WWE superstars of all time, began in Summerslam 2018. During that time, Flair became the new Smackdown Women's champion by beating both Becky and Carmella.

At that moment, Becky had enough of Flair stealing her opportunities and turned the switch to become the biggest stars in WWE history.

Ever since Becky defeated Charlotte and became 'The Man', she has evolved and became loved by millions around the world. Beco Over the course of time, the two women would be involved in some of the classic matches in WWE history.

Last Man Standing - Smackdown Women's Champion Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch

The first-ever last man standing match (Women's Evolution), where Becky became the Smackdown Women's champion over Charlotte Flair. Then there is the first-ever triple threat match for two women's titles at Wrestlemania, where Becky won and became 'Becky 2 Belts'.

On this night, the rivalry continues when Becky, who is now known as 'Big Time Becks', was focused on beating the hell out of her former friend and now foe, 'The Queen' herself. From beginning to end, the two women went all out and exchange blows, until 'Big Time Becks' held on to the ropes and pinned Flair for the victory.

For now, Becky owns Charlotte and is considered the best right now.

Becky has the last word and it is "Uh oh!"

Before the match ever begun, Team Raw (Seth Rollins, Bobby Lashley, Kevin Owens, Finn Balor, and Austin Theory), was slated to win this match against Team Smackdown (Drew McIntyre, Sheamus, Happy Corbin, 'King' Xavier Woods, and Jeff Hardy).

However, Owens took matters in his own hands and decided to leave his team behind, making it a 4 vs 5. As the match progressed, each men were eliminated and it came down to Rollins and Hardy. It was literally Raw vs. Smackdown in this showdown and Seth wasted no time to put Hardy down.

In the end, when Hardy attempted the vintage 'Swanton Bomb', Rollins had his knees up and it landed on Hardy's back, allowing him to do the 'Curb Stomp' for the victory. As a result, the 'Visionary' became the sole survivor for the Raw brand.

The first-ever 'The Rock's 25th Anniversary Battle Royal' match took place and all 25 men battled it out to become the winner. Once the match started, all hell broke loose. Omos inserted his dominance midway in the match while hias tag-team partner, the 'Phenomenal One' AJ Styles, chose to stay outside at ringside until its right to enter the ring.

As the match progressed, bodies were being thrown out the ring and Omos cleaned house. He did not care who was in front of him, big or small. Omos knew he had the advantage of both strength and agility to eliminate 12 men to become the first winner of the match.

Team Raw (Bianca Belair, Liv Morgan, Rhea Ripley, Carmella, and 'Queen' Zelina Vega) were set to battle Team Smackdown (Sasha Banks, Toni Storm, Shayna Baszler, Natalya, and Shotzi). However, Carmella chose to leave her team dry, similar to when Kevin owens did to his team earlier.

Nevertheless, the match went on and the eliminations grew, until Belair became the only one standing against 4 women. Through brute strength and resilience to fight, the 'EST of the WWE' overtook 4 women to become the sole survivor for Team RAW.

Champion Vs. Champion - RK-Bro vs. The Usos

The Smackdown Tag-Team champions, the Usos, went toe-to-toe against Raw Tag-Team champions, RK-Bro. The match was very exciting and each team held their ground throughout. As the match progressed, the Usos was clicking on all cylinders and everything was going their way.

In the end, Jimmy went on the top rope to finish off a beaten Riddle and out of nowhere, 'The Viper' strikes and delivered an RKO for the victory.

Until next time Usos.

The Missing Cleopatra Egg

Earlier in the night, WWE Chairman Vince McMahon arrived in a limousine with the so called 'real' Cleopatra Egg, which came from the 'Red Notice' on Netflix. Some time later, it appears that the Cleopatra Egg is missing and Mr. McMahon demands both Sonya Deville and Adam Pearce to find someone responsible.

Who will it be?

It can very well be the 'Beast Incarnate' Brock Lesnar, or the rumored legend Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson. Either way, whoever stole Mr. McMahon's egg will pay the consequences.

I guess we have to find out.

Champion Vs. Champion - WWE Champion Big E vs. Universal Champion Roman Reigns

All hail the 'Tribal Chief'.

The reigning....defending.....undisputed Universal heavyweight champion.....Roman.....Reigns!

It is Reigns' universe now.

The unstoppable 'Head of the Table' disposed the 'Power of Positivity' and regained his kingdom once again.

When the match began, we all knew there would be a lot of fists thrown at each other. Whenever Roman would deliver a major blow, Big E would immediately shake off the hit and get up like its nothing. At this point, Reigns had no choice but to put the WWE champion away.

To close out the match, the 'Head of the Table' re-injured Big E's knee and delivered is second spear for the victory.

Match of the Night

There were a few matches that caught my eye (Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair & RK-Bro vs. Usos), but match of night was definitely the 'Head of the Table' vs. the 'Power of Positivity'.

Who gets out of 3 superman punches and stands in front of the 'Tribal Chief' as he is about to spear you?

The only answer is Big E himself.

Although some people sided with Big E to win, the emotions came in to play and Reigns capitalized it in the end for his benefit. Since Brock Lesnar's suspension has been lifted, the matches between Lesnar and Reigns will be great to watch coming up.

The question still remains, will Paul Heyman be persuaded to side with his current client Brock Lesnar? Or will Heyman stick with his new client and undefeated Universal champion Roman Reigns?

We will find out soon.

That is all the review I have for you today!

I hope you all enjoyed the pay-per-view for those who are wrestling fans.

See You Soon
