The biggest wrestling show of the year has come and gone: WWE’s two-night extravaganza, WrestleMania.

WrestleMania 40 played out at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday and Sunday, and the card was stacked.

The main event of night one saw Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson competing fully in WWE for the first time in 11 years, as he teamed with his ‘cousin’ Roman Reigns to beat Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins. Due to The Rock and Reigns’s victory, the latter’s Universal Championship defence against Rhodes – the main event of night two – was ‘anything goes’, meaning plenty of interferences.

And the most notable interferences came from WWE legends John Cena and The Undertaker, who thwarted The Rock and enabled Rhodes to beat Reigns – marking the end a four-year title reign.

Re-live updates and results from both nights of WrestleMania 40:


WrestleMania 40 LIVE – Night Two: The Pride vs The Final Testament

Kross fights back, hitting a DDT on Lashley on the chair. Kross gets a 2 count on the pinfall, and he’s taking issue with Dudley now...

Kross shoves Dudley then turns around into a spear from Lashley. Dudley gives The Pride some advice, and Dawkins jumps off the top rope, hitting a headbutt to Kross’s nether regions...

Now Lashley, Dawkins and Ford grab a table from under the ring. They place Kross on the table, but it breaks prematurely (oops, that wasn’t meant to happen). They get another one and try again...

Ford with a splash from the top rope, putting Kross through the table, and Lashley follows up with a pin...

1, 2, 3! The Pride beats The Final Testament!

WrestleMania 40 LIVE – Night Two: The Pride vs The Final Testament

Straight away, Dawkins and Ford grab a table from under the ring! But The Final Testament incapacitate them, before grabbing kendo sticks and beating up Lashley!

Kross with a backbreaker to Lashley onto a chair! Akam and Rezar continue their kendo-stick assault on Dawkins and Ford.

The Pride fight back, though, with Ford flipping off the top rope and onto Akam and Rezar outside the ring! Ford almost went over the barricade and into the front row, too!!

Back in the ring, Lashley beats up Kross with a chair.

WrestleMania 40 LIVE – Night Two: Damian Priest vs Drew McIntyre

McIntyre starts taunting his rival CM Punk at the announce table, and finally Punk has enough!

Punk attacks McIntyre, leaving him lying on the floor outside the ring. Now here comes Mr Money in the Bank, Damian Priest!

He’s cashing in the contract! He rolls McIntyre into the ring... Chokeslam by Priest...

WrestleMania 40 LIVE – Night Two: Seth Rollins vs Drew McIntyre

Rollins and McIntyre exchange strikes, before McIntyre tries another Claymore. Rollins counters with a powerbomb, a Pedigree and a stomp, but McIntyre kicks out at 2 again!

Both men stand, and a frenetic exchange ensues, with McIntyre hitting a DDT. It’s Rollins’s turn to kick out of a pin attempt.

McIntyre looks at CM Punk at ringside and tries the fan favourite’s signature move, the GTS, but Rollins reverses with a clever pin... McIntyre beats the count, stands and hits a Claymore! 1, 2, kickout by Rollins!

McIntyre drags Rollins outside the ring and tries a powerbomb through an announce table, but the champion fights back. McIntyre is draped over one announce table, Rollins is standing on another, and he runs at the Scot and hits a stomp!

Rollins rolls McIntyre back into the ring, but he’s kicked straight in the face... Kickout by Rollins yet again!

One more Claymore kick by McIntyre, and this time... 1, 2, 3! He is the new World Heavyweight Champion!

WrestleMania 40 LIVE – Night Two: Seth Rollins vs Drew McIntyre

And the first match of the night is under way!

WOW! McIntyre hits his finisher, the Claymore kick, immediately! 1, 2... Rollins kicks out at the last possible moment! The crowd held its collective breath there...

Rollins rolls outside the ring, where McIntyre throws him around before grabbing his wife’s phone from the front row.

Rollins capitalises on a distraction from CM Punk, hitting a Pedigree on McIntyre! He rolls the Scot back into the ring, where McIntyre kicks out of a pin attempt.

So, it turns out this is what McIntyre did with his wife’s phone...

WrestleMania 40 LIVE – Night Two: Seth Rollins vs Drew McIntyre

Before the match gets going, Stephanie McMahon emerges to greet the crowd at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field.

Now here comes the challenger, Scotland’s Drew McIntyre, with a band of drummers and bagpipe players soundtracking his entrance. McIntyre earned the right to challenge Rollins by winning the Elimination Chamber in February.

Seth Rollins is out now, with a string band dressed in some pretty wild outfits playing his theme music. Rollins’s outfit is even wilder!

Guest commentator CM Punk is already ringside.

Here we go! Night two of WrestleMania 40 is under way!

We kick things off with Seth Rollins defending the World Heavyweight Title against Drew McIntyre.

WrestleMania 40 LIVE – Night Two

The Rock is not scheduled to compete tonight, but after he and Roman Reigns beat Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins last night, Rock has earned the right to interfere in Reigns vs Rhodes this evening...
