Quite obviously, this article is full of WWE WrestleMania 34 spoilers. Be warned!
WrestleMania 34 has already divided opinion online, but a general consensus has emerged. Many seem to think that the first half of the show was incredibly strong (like greatest-‘Mania-of-all-time levels) before things took a turn for the bizarre later on.
There’s no doubt that the second portion of the night was more than a little strange, but even as a whole, WrestleMania was a very eventful one.
From Matt Hardy and Bray Wyatt’s alliance in the first match of the pre-show to Brock Lesnar’s demolition of Roman Reigns in the main event, this year’s ‘Mania gave us incident after incident.
We saw The Undertaker squash John Cena, and it wasn’t even the most surprising result of the night. That honour must go to Braun Strowman and his brand new tag team partner, Nicholas – a 10-year-old boy seemingly plucked from the crowd – who became a very unlikely pair of Raw Tag Team Champions.
Of course, a show with so many twists and turns is going to leave us with a lot of questions going forward. We’ve picked 10 of the most notable takeaways from WrestleMania 34, and take a look at how they could shift the WWE landscape.
10. Where On Earth Is This Nicholas Angle Going!?
Let’s do the sensible thing and start off with Nicholas, the new big dog of WWE.
The young fan was later revealed to be the son of referee John Cone, but that revelation hasn’t stopped his Raw Tag Team Championship victory being one of the most bizarre WrestleMania moments of all time.
The angle was incredibly divisive online, with some finding it hilarious and fun, and others finding it anything but. Despite this, it at least united fans worldwide in wondering what the hell is going to happen next?
Is Nicholas going to be stripped of the title on tonight’s Raw? Is Strowman going to make several defences alongside his new pal, essentially taking part in handicap bouts until he’s finally overwhelmed? Is Nicholas going to pick up the pinfall at any stage!?
Whatever happens, it will surely be remembered as one of the weirdest ‘Mania results ever – and, due to the nature of the business, don’t be surprised to see a fully-grown Nicholas appear for a nostalgia pop in 10 years or so.
