There has never been a WrestleMania quite like WrestleMania 36.

For the first time in WWE history, WrestleMania is a two-night affair in front of an empty arena. The wrestlers worked extremely hard to perform to their highest level in the ring, though that challenge was magnified by the lack of a crowd. While it certainly does not detract from the effort or passion poured into the show, a wrestling match is simply incomplete without an audience to respond to the performance. There were still standout moments and matches, as the show started off with a very strong tag match that saw Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross win the Women’s Tag Team Championship.

Other highlights included Becky Lynch retaining her SmackDown Women’s Championship, Kevin Owens with an emotional victory against Seth Rollins, and John Morrison returning to WrestleMania for the first time in nine years to win a compelling ladder match against Kofi Kingston and Jimmy Uso.

This show will forever be known for its main event, which was the “Boneyard” match between The Undertaker and AJ Styles. After years of struggling to connect in the ring, The Undertaker delivered a throwback performance. WWE’s production team also created a fun, captivating, and sometimes even hokey–aren’t those some of WWE’s trademarks over the past 36 years?–match that stood out for all the right reasons.
