5 Biggest Headlines From WWE WrestleMania 36 Night Two

Plenty of newsworthy events and moments...

Combining both nights, the two main cards added up to close to six and a half hours. That's 16 matches split in half for a more digestible marathon WrestleMania 36. And after a rousing first night, the second act had plenty to live up to, though it's rather debatable how close it came to equaling its predecessor's overachievement.

There was a little bit of everything on WrestleMania 36's second night. There were major title changes, which ran the gamut of viewer reception. There was a brawl steeped in revenge that went on for far longer than most would've anticipated. And certainly not least of all, there was a long stretch of absurdity that makes Matt Hardy look as plain-spoken and normal as Jimmy Stewart. For certain, this was not a cookie cutter show by any stretch.

WrestleMania 36 was assured a place in history long before the matches unfolded before our very eyes, and even moreso in the aftermath. Let's look back at the most notable events of WrestleMania 36's second night.

Even as NXT moved into its sometimes concrete/sometimes not role of WWE's "third brand", it didn't seem likely that an old graduate would come back to the yellow brand and win a belt they'd held years earlier - after all, it's still "developmental" to a fair extent.

But that's exactly what happened when Charlotte Flair, six years after becoming the belt's second-ever holder, defeated Rhea Ripley to rekindle her past glory. In what was arguably the second night's best match (especially from a conventional standpoint), Flair and Ripley pieced together a fine wrestling match, culminating with Flair winning via the Figure Eight.
