WrestleMania 34 easily lived up to expectations, and it's safe to say the Grandest Stage of Them All was a much more enjoyable and action-packed event than the previous two outings.
We fans got to see a handful of championships change hands, along with some surprising heel turns and unexpected match outcomes. Needless to say, the folks who packed the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans got their moneys worth.
However, the WWE Universe has plenty of questions they need answered following an intriguing and exciting show. What will happen in the aftermath of these matches, and will a number of big-named stars be leaving the WWE?
Here are five questions we have following the epic event that was WrestleMania 34.
5. Ronda Rousey's Next Feud?
It wasn't the least bit shocking, but Ronda Rousey won in her WWE debut, along with tag team partner - Raw GM Kurt Angle. They defeated Triple H and Stephanie McMahon in a thrilling back-and-forth match, but we know this feud isn't going to last long.
McMahon, Angle and The Game are only part-time wrestlers, and it's likely Rousey will move on to a new rivalry very soon. Nia Jax defeated Alexa Bliss to win the Raw Women's Championship, but it's easy to assume that their rivalry will continue.
With Rousey staying on Raw long-term, it's anybody's guess what the creative team does with her. Both Rousey and Jax portray babyface characters, so it's hard to envision them feuding right away. As such, it's tough to guess what's next for Rousey in her promising WWE career.
4. Why Did Asuka's Streak End?
Asuka won the very first women's Royal Rumble, and it was already safe to assume then that she would capture the Raw or SmackDown Women's Championship. She opted to face Charlotte and move over to the SmackDown Live brand, putting her 914 day "undefeated streak" on the line.
However, The Queen reigned supremacy and defeated The Empress of Tomorrow. Asuka congratulated Charlotte and the two embraced, but it's safe to question why WWE would have her streak end this early - especially on the Grandest Stage of Them All.
Charlotte has already established herself as the face of the women's division in WWE, and it just felt like Asuka needed this win more to gain momentum. Perhaps we'll find out why the creative team opted to have Charlotte end Asuka's streak this early into her tenure on the main event roster.
3. The Future of Braun Strowman's New "Partner"
Braun Strowman reluctantly agreed to find a tag team partner to challenge the Bar for their championships at WrestleMania 34. The Monster Among Men teased his partner on Monday Night Raw, but it only turned out to be his alter ego "Brain Strowman."
The list of possible options was long, with some wondering if an injured talent like Samoa Joe or Big Cass would return. But Strowman went into the crowd and choose a young fan named Nicholas.
Strowman then single-handedly crushed The Bar to win his first championship gold in WWE. But now the question is this: Who is Nicholas? Why was he chosen to win it? And how long will he appear on WWE programming?
We'll likely have to wait until Monday Night Raw to find out more answers, but it's impossible to envision Nicholas actually staying on television for a long period of time.
2. What's Next For Lesnar and Reigns?
Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns clashed in the main event, even though much of the WWE Universe is tired of a) a part-timer being the Universal Champion for over a year and b) The Big Dog headlining WrestleMania once again.
With Lesnar's contract running up and UFC president Dana White saying that Lesnar was headed back to UFC, it made sense for Reigns to defeat him and earn more much-needec momentum.
Instead, we saw a very boring and one-sided match that had no reason to be the main event. Lesnar squashed Reigns, and the fans in New Orleans began chanting "This is awful," and it really was.
So unless Lesnar is planning to stay in WWE long-term, when will his Universal Championship reign end? And what's next for the Roman Empire, who has already feuded with most of the top talents? We fans deserve answers soon, considering this was a very unworthy main event.
1. Was This The Undertaker's Last Ride?
The Undertaker vs. John Cena bout was rumored to happen for over a year, and fans who had waited this long for it got their wish. It happened in epic fashion, with 'Taker finally showing up to challenge the 16-time World Champion.
Undertaker redeemed himself from last year's crushing loss to Roman Reigns, squashing Cena in 2:46. Even though he's now 53 years of age and has battled numerous injuries, Undertaker still looks like somebody who can still wrestle high-quality matches.
But now, fans are left to wonder if this is The Undertaker's last match or not. We thought he was done after losing to Reigns at WrestleMania 33, but he came back for (at least), one more run.
We know that Undertaker has always wanted to end his career in secrecy without a major sendoff. And if this was the last time he stepped foot into the WWE ring, the legendary superstar went out in perfect terms. But the ultimate question is this: Was WrestleMania 34 really his last ride, or does he have a little more gas left in the tank that's been running for nearly three decades?
