Personally, these are the top highlights of the main event (in no chronological order)

  • Ronda Rousey may have played her last WWE match

Although Ronda Rousey left the WWE hurt (both physically and emotionally), speculations were rife before the match that she may very well be playing her last match for WWE. However, the latest episode of her vlog Ronda on the Road  her has somewhat confirmed that Ronda Rousey will be leaving WWE. In the vlog Ronda can be seen giving hugs to Triple H, Travis Browne, and Paul Heyman. But it is her answer to a team member that “cause today is the beginning of the rest of my life,” that has stirred up the internet that she is finally leaving WWE.

  • The Abrupt WrestleMania 35 Ending

The event lasting for over 100 hours ended so abruptly that it fuelled speculations on whether the production team had actually missed something. Becky Lynch would have liked a bit of celebration after she pinned Ronda Rousey to become the double champ, but the production team had some other plans. However, writing for the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer opined that the production team had no plans of offering Lynch an extended celebration time – instead, they had planned a confrontation between Lynch and Charlotte Flair to spice up things. In the end, it got so late and everyone got so tired that it was a quick end to an otherwise successful event.

  • Kofi Kingston – the first native African to become WWE heavyweight champion

Kofi Kingston’s win at the WrestleMania 35 was a proud moment, which fans across the world will cherish for a long time. For he became the first native Africa to hold the title of world heavyweight champion, and the second African America (after The Rock) to hold the signature title of WWE. It took Kofi Kinston nearly 11 years to reach to the top of WWE, and his fans rejoiced that his struggle and preservation had finally paid off.
