Brock Lesnar and Seth Rollins were one of the options for the main event of WrestleMania 35 but WWE chose to go with the women instead.
As a result, after Hulk Hogan and Alexa Bliss opened the show by welcoming the crowd, Paul Heyman came out and stormed down to the ring.
Heyman informed the crowd that if they were not on last they would fight first and get on their jet to fly to Las Vegas where they are ultimately respected.
The word choice did not go unnoticed.
When Seth Rollins came out, Brock attacked instantly and beat him horribly. Then, when the bell finally rang, it was time for Brock to get the win.
However, after a referee was knocked down, Rollins hit a low blow and then hit three Stomps to pin Lesnar and win the Universal Championship.
