WWE WrestleMania 2021 Results: Night 2 Top Highlights and Low Points Review

    After a successful first night of WrestleMania 37, the biggest WWE show of the year wrapped up with the second night of festivities featuring more marquee matches.

    The Triple Threat between Roman Reigns, Edge and Daniel Bryan for the Universal Championship alone could have sold this show, but it was also flanked by the Raw Women's Championship, bitter rivalries and more.

    Which segments stood out as the biggest highlights and low points of the night? Was the potential for greatness realized or did several segments fall short of expectations?

    Now that the dust has settled, let's look back on Night 2 of WrestleMania 37 for the best moments and the biggest disappointments of the event.

Low Point: 'The Fiend' Bray Wyatt vs. Randy Orton

    Randy Orton vs. Bray Wyatt has disappointed on The Grandest Stage of Them All before. No one is putting their encounter from WrestleMania 33 on their all-time list unless it's to make fun of the worms projected onto the ring.

    And yet, for some reason, WWE decided to not only go back to this feud in November but also to drag it out for five months so it could culminate again at WrestleMania—all for it to amount to this.

    It wasn't a spectacle of the macabre, and it didn't have any otherworldly elements that fans will talk about for decades.

    All of this led to a decent jack-in-the-box entrance—nowhere near the best ever—and a generic match to follow. If anyone wanted to see that again, they could have just rewatched TLC 2020.

    Try as WWE might to position The Fiend as the new Undertaker, he simply isn't The Phenom in terms of performance value.

    This was a weak way to open the show, too. It shouldn't have been there to begin with, but it at least would have been better served as a buffer segment following something with more energy.

    For all of it to boil down to Alexa Bliss dripping black goo from her head, Orton getting another win and teasing that this isn't over, it's no wonder many fans in attendance were left disappointed.

Low Point: Women's Tag Team Championship Match

    Considering how many talented wrestlers are in the women's division, it's a shame everything revolving around the tag titles has been a mess for so long and both nights of WrestleMania couldn't break that trend.

    It was disappointing enough that the worst match with the most problems on Saturday was the tag team turmoil that seemed to be built on the philosophy of "Who cares? Just throw a bunch of teams together at the last minute."

    Going with Tamina and Natalya to win was likely the least popular option, too. Then, when the bell rang on Night 2, the title match didn't make up for it. If anything, it just made things worse.

    When fans did start getting behind Tamina, WWE didn't go with the hot spot. She finally bodyslammed Jax, only for her team to lose.

    At least if new champions were crowned, some fans may have been convinced it was exciting on that principle alone. Instead, it was just a bland contest that took time away from others.

    Jax and Baszler could have been in the Night 1 match defending their titles to open up a spot for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship or the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal.

    But there wasn't even any payoff of the Reginald angle. What was the point in any of this?

Highlight: Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn

    Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn have had better matches than this in the past, but this was at least a step up from the two matches that preceded it.

    The action was solid as expected from these two, but WWE also made the right call by having KO hit Logan Paul with a Stunner.

    Let's be honest: That was the entire reason this match and segment existed. If anything other than that had happened, it would have been a mistake.

    WWE will get some media coverage for that moment with the YouTuber, while Owens and Zayn got to do their thing in the ring at WrestleMania.

Highlight: United States Championship Match

    One of the many matches that had a rushed build was the United States Championship, but at least Sheamus and Riddle delivered in the ring.

    There were a few slip-ups, but this was a good showing for both men.

    And while it's unlikely many fans would tout this as one of the top titles they were hyped to see change hands, it's nearly always a talking point whenever a new champion is crowned.

    There isn't too much to dissect about this. Riddle and Sheamus wailed on each other, and The Celtic Warrior came out the better man. It was simple but effective.

Low Point: Nigerian Drum Fight for the Intercontinental Championship

    After having six other matches in the past three months, Big E and Apollo Crews needed to add something to spice up their feud. Unfortunately, the answer wasn't the Nigerian Drum Fight gimmick.

    Clearly, WWE didn't announce the rules ahead of time because it turned out to be a generic No Disqualification match.

    Over the past decade, the company has developed a bad habit of acting like an Extreme Rules match, No Holds Barred match, unsanctioned match, Street Fight and so on are anything more than a regular No Disqualification contest.

    Just because Fit Finlay was involved didn't make a Belfast Brawl anything different, and having drums ringside on Sunday didn't make this its own thing, particularly as much of it revolved around the company's go-to weapon: the kendo stick.

    Big E and Crews performed fine, but WWE couldn't resist having another hometown hero lose just to get some heat. For all the goodwill it put into Night 1, it seems the theme of Night 2 was to troll the audience and upset them.

    It's good for Crews to get some credibility back, but there are tons of better ways that could have happened.

    Dabba-Kato's return is a positive, but the commentary team playing dumb and acting like they had no idea who he is was a negative.

    This isn't something WWE should pat itself on the back for.

Highlight: Rhea Ripley Wins the Raw Women's Championship

    For this to be a highlight, you have to ignore the entire year's worth of negatives that preceded it, but there is still a major positive to be had.

    Yes, Asuka's time atop the Raw women's division has been a joke as WWE consistently spent more time focusing on Nia Jax putting Lana through a table, Charlotte Flair arguing with Lacey Evans and Ric Flair, and The Golden Role Models moving over from SmackDown.

    Equally problematic, Rhea Ripley's loss to The Queen at WrestleMania 36 killed her momentum and she had struggled since then.

    But even though this bout amounted to a simple "challenge-accept" build for WrestleMania, at least these two talented women got the chance to lock horns and do battle on the biggest event of the year.

    Ripley vs. Asuka is a match that needed to happen and was made significantly better by being in front of a crowd.

    Better yet, putting the title on The Nightmare was the right call. It's a shame The Empress of Tomorrow's time with the gold is over, but the bigger priority was putting over the future star this division will hinge on for years to come.

    The match did its job, the right wrestler was victorious, and we can only hope this is the start of rehabbing Ripley back into being the top-tier Superstar she's meant to be.

Low Point: The Bella Twins Take out Bayley

    It was disheartening that Bayley wasn't advertised for any appearance on the card at all. After holding the SmackDown Women's Championship for a year and a half, it would have been a major slight if she had not been involved at all.

    After she started to act like she was the host, it became clear what needed to happen: Someone had to put her in her place. That shouldn't have been The Bella Twins, though. 

    If this had been Becky Lynch, it would have gotten a pop; but Nikki and Brie were booed, making this whole setup a failure.

Highlight: Universal Championship Triple Threat Match

    Surely, a good portion of the WWE Universe will be upset that neither Daniel Bryan nor Edge walked out of Raymond James Stadium as the new universal champion.

    However, unlike most of the decisions that upset the audience on Sunday night, this one can be argued as a good thing.

    Roman Reigns retaining the title further pushes his dominance and Tribal Chief character, while the match itself was one of the best of the night. As the main event, that was a necessity.

    It may sting right now, but this is something many will warm to and consider a highlight in the grand scheme of things, even if you can't already appreciate it for just the bell-to-bell action.
