Check out the full results from WrestleMania 33 in Orlando.

WrestleMania 33 clocked in at a solid seven hours, longer than a UFC event. It delivered a little bit of everything though – good technical wrestling, many people going through tables, and the return of a legendary tag team. Oh, and Rob Gronkowski!

Check out the full results below.

Roman Reigns def. Undertaker

Jim Ross came down to do the announcing for the match. The early part of the match saw Undertaker showing Reigns that it was still his yard, beating up his opponent. They then turned to plunder, with a bunch of moves on the outside including a spear from Reigns that put Taker through a table. A Last Ride wasn’t enough to put Reigns away, so he nailed him with a chair a few times. A chokeslam on the chair didn’t work either. Nor did a Tombstone. The crowd was not happy about this. They blew a couple of spots near the end and it wasn’t super pretty. Reigns started to dominate but couldn’t put Taker away. Finally, after a bunch of spears and superman punches, he put the Undertaker away.

Taker took his gloves, trenchcoat, and iconic hat off and left them in the center of the ring – a sure sign of retirement from the legend.

Naomi def. Alexa Bliss, Becky Lynch, Mickie James, Carmella, and Natalya

This was filler, working as the bridge spot between the two title matches and the headliner. Naomi made Bliss tap to the Spider Twist to claim back her title.

Brock Lesnar def. Goldberg

This was the hard-hitting bout you’d expect. Lesnar hit a bunch of german suplexes early, then got speared a few times, including through the barricade. Goldberg hit a Jackhammer, but Lesnar kicked out. After eating a turnbuckle, Lesnar hit NINE german suplexes and a F-5 to get his revenge and win the Universal title.

Randy Orton def. Bray Wyatt

After a bunch of RKO teases and Wyatt superimposing things like worms and bugs on the ring while Orton was down, Orton was able to hit an RKO on the outside. He missed the career killer kick and ended up eating Sister Abigail, but kicked out. Then the RKO came out of nowhere and The Viper is the new WWE champion.

Seth Rollins def. Triple H

The entire story of the match was based around Seth’s injured knee. Triple H would take it out, Seth would persevere. Rinse, repeat. A sledgehammer was teased a few times but never came into play. The finish was great though – after about 5000 Pedigree attempts by each man, Stephanie McMahon got up on the apron. Rollins throw Trips at her but he stopped just in time. He still ended up getting bumped into her though, as his head collided with hers and she fell straight back – through a table. Rollins finally hit the Pedigree and exacted his revenge.

John Cena & Nikki Bella def. Miz & Maryse

This…happened, I guess. Miz tried, but there wasn’t really much to this other than the girls slapping the guys and Nikki hitting a dive on Miz on the outside. It was all a setup to John Cena’s marriage proposal to Nikki after the match, which was kind of lame.

The Hardy Boyz def. Anderson & Gallows, Enzo & Cass, and Cesaro & Sheamus

Yes, the Hardys. After each team came to the ring, New Day came out to announce a fourth team in the match, making it seem like it was them. But no – the Hardys WWE music played for the first time in many years, and Matt and Jeff came to the ring as the crowd chanted DELETE DELETE DELETE. There was one “Broken” reference by the commentary team, but that was about it in terms of their old characters. Matt hit a bunch of Twist of Fates, including one off the top of a ladder. Jeff climbed atop a gigantic ladder and hit a swanton on two guys prone on ladders on the outside. That was absolutely insane, and it allowed Matt to climb up to claim the WWE tag team titles.

By far my favorite part of the show. DELETE!

Bayley def. Charlotte, Sasha Banks, and Nia Jax

The story early was the three smaller women teaming up to take out Jax. They eventually did when all three jumped on her after a big move to get the pin. Charlotte then showed off her athleticism with a crazy corkscrew moonsault off the top rope to the outside. A stripped turnbuckle came into play next, allowing Charlotte to eliminate Sasha. After some submission attempts by Charlotte, Bayley eventually hit a Macho Man top-rope elbow to hold onto her belt.

Kevin Owens def. Chris Jericho

This was a very good match but feels like it could have been more. A lot of brawling and reversals, with both men hitting their finishers but not getting the pin. Finally KO hit an Apron Powerbomb, rolled Jericho in, and won his US Title.

AJ Styles def. Shane McMahon

All the plunder you expected from Shane, but he didn’t connect with much of it. After a ref bump, Shane-O-Mac hit the Coast 2 Coast with a garbage can, but AJ managed to kick out. Shane then missed a top-rope elbow though the table outside. Somehow Shane recovered and tried to hit a Shooting Star Press (crazy man), but missed again. Phenomenal Forearm and it was over.

Kickoff show

Dean Ambrose def. Baron Corbin

Surprisingly, this was bumped to the pre-show. The match wasn’t bad, but it could have been a lot more. Corbin got a couple of near-falls but got reversed and ate Dirty Deeds so the hero could retain his Intercontinental title.

Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal

In a huge surprise, New England Patriots’ tight end Rob Gronkowski got involved in the finish. After all the big men had been eliminated earlier in the match, leaving the final three at Killian Dain, Jinder Mahal, and Mojo Rawley. Gronk smashed Dain and Rawley tossed him, shortly before tossing Mahal as well and taking the W.

Winner: Mojo Rawley

Neville def. Austin Aries

A solid back-and-forth opener that made both guys stronger. After a bunch of kickouts, Neville managed to hit the Red Arrow to keep the Cruiserweight belt.
