The full recaps of Night 1 of WrestleMania 38 can be found here.
After the return of Stone Cold Steve Austin, a signature win for Bianca Belair, and another memorable victory for Charlotte Flair, there are plenty of big matches on Sunday night.
The main event will feature a match between Roman and Brock to determine the undisputed champion. The winner of theWinner Take All match will get the Universal championship and the winner will get the WWE championship, and after months of intense preparation, the two will finally get their match on Sunday night.
Two tag team titles will be on the line as Raw's tag team champions aim to retain against the Street Profits and Alpha Academy, while Carmella and Queen Zelina will battle Naomi and Shayna Baszler.
There are a number of unique participants on Sunday night, with Pat McAfee stepping away from the broadcast booth to face Austin Theory, Johnny Knoxville trying to get the best of Sami Zayn in an Anything Goes match, and Bobby Lashley facing Omos.
Follow along as we recap every match as it happens, and get caught up with how we got here.
The Boss and Naomi were given the women's tag team titles. Naomi held Carmella aloft as Banks did a somersault and landed a Codebreaker on Carmella. Banks has held the tag titles three times.
In a four-way tag match, this is what we typically see. There were some fun spots along the way. Morgan and Ripley delivered power bombs from opposite corners as the other competitors were on the turnbuckles.
It was a shout out to the eye makeup that made Ripley look like she was possessed by Dormammu of the Dark Dimension.
The Queen and Carmella will get a return match for the belts, but this could be the start of a productive reign for Naomi and Sasha.
If you are going to have the star of Jackass Forever perform at the event, make it as absurd as possible. The mission was accomplished, as Knoxville defeated Zayn in a match whose preposterousness piled up as fast as his career injuries.
The South Knoxville Strong Guy arrived in a red and white superhero costume complete with protective goggles, which we immediately realized were to protect him from the fire extinguisher blast that happened in the first two minutes of the match.
There was a stop sign, garbage can, garbage can lids, a crutch, a cookie sheet, a table broken by an Exploder suplex, and an air horn used by Chris to stop a Helluva Kick.
This match had everything.
The finish was like a deleted scene from Jackass. Early in the match, a table under the ring had a lot of mouse traps on it. As it factored into his demise, this became a table full of mousetraps. As Knoxville had previously triggered ring post pyro to scare him, he climbed to the top rope. After arriving with a pair of BBQ tongs, he threw Sami onto the mouse trap table.

The mouse trap was brought into the ring by the Jackass crew. He tasered him where the cheese goes. It was difficult for Knoxville to get the gimmick trap to work, but he eventually got it across the chest of Sami.
Hopefully, the champion of the hardcore division will be Knoxville, but probably not. How about a challenge to regain the intercontinental title, and a little more serious, for Zayn?
The weakest build of anything on the two-night card was delivered by this match, and it was more confusing than anticipated.
Lashley was put over as the superior competitor in the match. Which, again, would make for a compelling story if it wasn't for the fact that the sentient bicep standing across from him is anything but a physical underdog.
After a few minutes, Lashley recovered from a bear hug and delivered a suplex on the 7-foot-3 Omos and then delivered a spear and pin.
Bobby Lashley leaves the match looking strong and powerful, which we already knew about. The result is even more curious because Omos doesn't get any benefit from this loss. Lashley should get some power spots in order to keep his reputation intact, but he should also get the win to build his confidence. Unless there is no momentum to build, that is?
The opening match on Night 2 whipped the Dallas crowd into a frenzy, as a wild no-DQ, no-countout match reached an incredible climax.
Montez Ford was ready for a top-rope finish after the ring was cleared. Ford bounced out of the ring after being hit by a top rope RKO from Riddle, who returned from the outside. Chad Gable of Alpha Academy was caught midflight by Orton for an RKO after he climbed the ropes to finish Riddle. Gable was pinned by Orton to end the match and keep the titles.

Three teams with unique chemistry battled it out in a wild spot-fest. The two wrestlers pulled off a ropes-assisted DDT. The Profits had a big hit on Gable. My favorite spot in the match was when Dawkins had Riddle pinned and Otis broke up the pin by splashing on Dawkins back. My dude, you just added 330 pounds to your pin! Stay there!
After the match, The Profits returned to the ring for a red solo cup celebration and invited Gable Steveson to join them. However...
What is next? Chad Gable hit the cup out of Steveson's hand. Steveson suplexed him after Chad told him to "shoosh!" There is a first feud between two former Olympians. They could use a new feud after this dance.
👏👏👏👏#WrestleMania @TripleH pic.twitter.com/9SeJ9kyhZR— WWE (@WWE) April 4, 2022
Triple H opened the show with a growling yell, but his surprise appearance to open Night 2 was more poignant than that. The man known as "The Game" put his boots in the middle of the ring after he was thanked by the crowd.
Triple H made the announcement on First Take. Tommaso Ciampa lost to Tony D&Angelo on stage at the NXT Stand and Deliver on Saturday, which is expected to be his final appearance in the company.
The winner of the unification match will be Roman Reigns of the Universal title.
Austin Theory vs. Pat McAfee.
King Woods and Kofi Kingston are in a match with Ridge Holland and Sheamus.
