• The Most Dominant Pinfall Finish In WrestleMania History Took Place On This Date
On April 11, 2021, Night 2 of WrestleMania 37 took place at the Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida.
The most dominant pinfall finish in WrestleMania history took place in the main event, when Roman Reigns pinned former World Champions Edge and Daniel Bryan at the same time.
Below are the results:
– Randy Orton def. The Fiend (with Alexa Bliss)
– WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship Match: Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax (c) def. Natalya & Tamina to retain the Titles
– Kevin Owens def. Sami Zayn (Owens hit Logan Paul with a Stunner after the match)

– The Bella Twins laid out Bayley in a short segment on the stage
– Triple Threat Match For The Universal Championship: Roman Reigns (c) def. Edge and Daniel Bryan to retain the Title
After his dominating victory, Reigns appeared on the WWE Watch Along livestream after WrestleMania 37 went off the air and said the following:
“What’d you think was gonna happen? Y’all calling me a liar? I told y’all on Friday – I’m gonna smash ’em, I’m gonna stack ’em, I’m gonna pin ’em 1-2-3, I’m gonna stand up, put this over my head, let them look up to a greater man.
A million dollars of pyro – pow, pow, pow. Just like I called it. And still. Now it’s time. Paul, what time is it?”
Paul Heyman then said the following:
“What time is it? It’s Roman Reigns’ time. It is time for The Tribal Chief, it is time for The Be All End All, it is time for the Sun on which the entire WWE Universe revolves around, it is time for the reigning, defending, undisputed, uncontroverted, WWE Universal Heavyweight Champion, Roman Reigns.”
Reigns then looked at the camera and said, ‘Acknowledge Me’.
With his loss in the main event, Edge (who won the Men’s Royal Rumble 2021 match) became the only two-time Royal Rumble winner to lose both of his World Title WrestleMania matches that were earned through the Rumble victories.
Edge won his first Royal Rumble in 2010 and went on to face Chris Jericho for the World Heavyweight Championship at WrestleMania 26 and lost.

• Old School ECW Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 50th birthday of ECW Veteran “The Hardcore Chair Swingin’ Freak” Balls Mahoney (Real name: Jonathan Rechner).
The first time we saw him on TV was when he did televised jobs for the World Wrestling Federation in 1992 and later joined Jim Cornette’s Smoky Mountain Wrestling in 1994.
Before Balls Mahoney made a name for himself in Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling, he portrayed The Million Dollar Man’s evil Santa Claus called “Xanta Klaus” on WWF TV for a short period of time.
In ECW he won 3 Tag Team Championships, 2 with Spike Dudley and 1 with Masato Tanaka.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † R.I.P.
