Live WWE WrestleMania 38 Night Two Results – Click here for our detailed recap from WrestleMania Saturday.
Here is a recap of backstage/significant segments during the Kickoff pre-show:
Undertaker gave his prediction for the match. He says Brock has a different aura to him. You know you are going to have a physical match with him. Roman exudes confidence. Roman was on the rise when he faced him. Roman is much calmer now, but he has tons of energy and charisma. Taker says they are physical and brutal. Roman is more calculating but he is explosive and very athletic. It is entertaining to see guys that size do what they can do. Taker says having the title that long means you are putting asses in the seats. It shows that what Roman is doing is working. He says he is proud of the work that Roman has put in and it shows his passion for the business. He says it is cool to see Brock having fun. When the bell rings, he is all business and he will suplex someone. Taker is asked for his pick and he says it is hard to call this match. Taker says he will go out on a limb and say that Roman wins.
Backstage with Paul Heyman:
We go to Megan Morant with Paul Heyman. She brings up that it is finally here, but Paul looks nervous. Paul asks if that is the best question she has for him? Paul says she is pretty intuitive. Paul says he is more than nervous. He is ill at ease. He says he does not feel well. He has to mourn the end of a friendship and a career that has spanned more than 20 years of Brock Lesnar. Paul says he has been here before. It is deja vu for him. He felt this wy at Wrestlemania 30 when he knew he was going to conquer the Undertaker’s streak and Brock deserves half of the credit. Paul says he knew that was the end of the Deadman and the end of a career. The way I felt about Undertaker at the hands of Brock Lesnar is how I feel about Brock Lesnar at the hands of Roman Reigns. One man will stand over the other with both titles and it will be the end of the career of Brock Lesnar.
Backstage with Zelina Vega and Carmella:
Maria Menounos is with Zelina Vega and Carmella. She asks how will they retain the titles. Zelina says she can win by pin or submission and Carmella says she can win by pin or submission. Maria asks about their opponents and they insult all six women. Zelina says no one takes down the rightful champions without sacrificing their lives.

He says Vince has confidence in him getting the job done against Fat McAfee. Austin says there is no comparison about who is going to win. He will apologize for stepping in the ring. When I win, I will take the most stupendous selfie in Wrestlemania. Austin takes a selfie with Maria.
Bobby Lashley Talks Omos:
Lashley is in the back and Maria shows up to ambush him. She mentions that he was the first to knock Omos off his feet and she asks if he can do it again. Lashley says Omos has dominated and he has beaten some of the best. He has decimated tag teams by himself. Lashley says that is why he is charged up now. He is ready to put the myth of Omos to rest. He may be unbeaten, but that doesn’t make him unbeatable.

Heyman yells encouragement at his Tribal Chief. We hear Reigns yelling “it’s out!” to Heyman, apparently saying his shoulder came out of place from the Kimura Lock. Lesnar scoops Reigns for a F5 but Reigns slides out and hits another Spear, this time for the pin to win the titles.
Winner and New Undisputed WWE Universal Champion: Roman Reigns
After the match, the music hits as Reigns stands tall. Heyman brings the gold in the ring as Reigns sells his arm injury. The announcers say Reigns just popped his shoulder back in. Reigns raises the WWE Title and the WWE Universal Title in the air. Reigns and Heyman then exit the ring as we go to replays of the WrestleMania Sunday main event. The replay shows how Heyman put Reigns’ hand on the bottom rope to break the Kimura. We come back from the replays and Reigns has both title belts raised on the ramp. Lesnar is trying to recover in the ring. The pyro explodes inside the stadium, then a large WrestleMania logo and star forms above the stadium with more fireworks going off. Heyman stands by as Reigns looks at the camera and points his finger to show he’s #1 as Night Two of WrestleMania 38 goes off the air.
