The final four left in the 30-man battle were Roman Reigns, Big Show, Kane and Rusev. The Rock rushed in to make a surprising WWE return, helping to save Reigns by taking out Big Show and Kane. Rusev attempted to surprise Roman Reigns after hiding underneath the ring, but was eliminated as the last competitor. Many in the Philadelphia crowd were upset at Daniel Bryan’s early elimination by Bray Wyatt, but Roman Reigns earns the WrestleMania title shot nonetheless.

Brock Lesnar (c) def. Seth Rollins and John Cena

(WWE Heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar)

Rollins and Cena gave everything in their power to end Lesnar’s run in the Triple Threat Match while still battling one another. Rollins soared through the air for a spectacular elbow to Lesnar on the announcer’s table, isolating Cena as an opponent in the ring with the help of J&J security. After suffering a three-on-one assault, Cena retaliated with a double Attitude Adjustment on Jamie Noble & Joey Mercury and hit Rollins with the finishing move. Neither noticed Lesnar recovering at ringside.

Rollins clocked Lesnar twice with his Money in the Bank Briefcase before trying to put “The Beast Incarnate” to rest with a Curb Stomp. Lesnar caught Rollins mid-stomp, hoisted him onto his shoulders and finished him with an F-5 to remain the Heavyweight Champion.
