“Then. Now. Forever.” The WWE video leads us into the show.
A video kicks off the show that shows still photos of one of the most consequential WrestleMania main events of all time: Roman Reigns defeated The Undertaker in what appears to be the final match of his career. At the conclusion of the match, The Undertaker removed his jacket, hat, and gloves and left them in the center of the ring.
We go live into the arena to hear a loud “Undertaker” chant. It goes on for quite a while in the Amway Center in what is an incredible moment. The camera shoots all over the arena. Every person is on their feet chanting for The Undertaker and clapping in respect. It doesn’t let up. Some fans try to get a “Roman Sucks” chant in the middle of it, and it does pick up. This is going on for over three minutes.
Roman Reigns addresses retiring The Undertaker
Roman Reigns’ music hits, and he makes his way to the ring to MASSIVE boos from the crowd in Orlando. The crowd loudly boos him while he makes a slow walk to the ring. Michael Cole says there is speculation that it was The Undertaker’s last match and thanks him. A loud “DELETE” chant fires up. Reigns slowly walks around the ring. A vulgar “F–k you, Roman” chant picks up. Reigns seems to have a smirk on his face, and the “DELETE” chant fires up again. The boos them come hard and heavy on him. They then start chanting, “You suck” toward him. Reigns seems to be enjoying himself. Right when it seems to be dying down, they chant, “A–hole” toward him. Reigns puts the microphone close to his mouth, and they loudly boo him. They chant, “Roman Sucks” to the rhythm of “New Day Rocks.” Then they go to “DELETE” chants. Reigns puts the microphone to his mouth again, and they loudly boo him. They then go to a “SHUT THE F–K UP” chant. Reigns smiles as he puts the microphone to his mouth again and gets viciously booed. A “Go away” chant then picks up.
Finally Reigns puts the microphone up to his mouth, looks directly into the camera, and simply says, “This is my yard now” before dropping the microphone and walking off.
The commentators talk about what Reigns just said before saying the crowd will boo people they normally cheer in the name of “good fun.” Coming up next, The Hardy Boyz will defend their newly won WWE RAW Tag Team Championships against Anderson and Gallows.
Anderson and Gallows make their way to the ring.
