The action from the WWE Wrestlemania 36 spilt into day 2 of the pre-recorded main event held at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
NXT Women’s Championship
The first headliner of Wrestlemania 36 day 2, saw Charlotte Flair taking on Rhea Ripley for the NXT Women’s Championship title. The match which lasted almost thirty minutes saw the two superstars battling it out with Charlotte coming so close to nailing her Figure Eight on Rhea Ripley but the wear and tear of the exhausting match caught up with Flair as Ripley was the one who ended the match with her submission move walking away with the NXT Women’s Championship title.
The main event and the crown jewel of the WWE universe was up for grabs as Brock Lesnar took on Drew McIntyre for the WWE Championship title. The action took off as soon as the bell rang with Lesner F5 after F5, the brutality of which would have had anyone expecting Lesnar to be walking out of the ring with the Championship belt around his waist at any time.
Well that was until Drew McIntyre managed to counter Lesnar and start dishing out his own serving of Claymores that eventually took their toll on Brock Lesnar, allowing McIntyre to walk away with the WWE Championship after pinning Lesnar who was unable to fully recover after falling victim to the McIntyre’s punishing Claymores, over and over again.
The only thing missing from the two days of all-out action at the WWE Performance Center was the atmosphere of the fans. WWE organisers did an amazing job ensuring the event carried on as scheduled amid the number of other sporting event that have found themselves either being cancelled or postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
