The 37th edition of WrestleMania has been in the archive for a few hours. Splitting the show into two different nights made some turn up their noses, while others considered it a reasonable choice considering the period. The weather did not help, forcing WWE leaders to review both the program and the start time of the 'Showcase of the Immortals'
Among the most unexpected surprises of this year, there is certainly the victory of Bobby Lashley against Drew McIntyre. In what was the opening match of the pay-per-view, Lashley achieved a truly prestigious success after scoring a devastating 'Hurt Lock' on the Scot.
The two superstars are set to face off again at Backlash, which takes place next month. In the latest edition of his podcast, WWE legend Booker T drew a parallel between the outcome of this challenge and the interruption of The Undertaker's streak at WrestleMania XXX.
WWE legend Booker T believes that fans were shocked after Drew McIntyre lost to Bobby Lashley at WrestleMania 37, comparing it to when The Undertaker's Streak was broken. “I don't know if that's what the fans wanted, but in the end, Bobby Lashley won with full credit," the two-time Hall of Famer said.

"I was nearby and I felt the atmosphere that was in the air. The fans were literally shocked, I thought someone would even feel bad about the surprise. It reminded me of when the Undertaker streak at WrestleMania was stopped at the hands of Brock Lesnar, I had a very similar feeling.
Many people would never have imagined that the match would end like that," Booker T added. Another of the absolute protagonists of WrestleMania was Roman Reigns, able to maintain his Universal title despite the onslaught of Edge and Daniel Bryan.
Twitter literally exploded after the triumph of the former Shield member, who may have captured the most prestigious success of his entire career. Numerous former federation stars have complimented Roman, including JBL. All that remains is to wait to see what the future developments of his character will be.
Bobby Lashley defended his WWE Championship against Drew McIntyre at The Show of Shows this past weekend. The WWE Championship match was the very first match of WrestleMania 37, which took place on Night 1 of the show. Lashley got the win after putting McIntyre in the Hurt Lock. The two superstars will face each other once again at next month's WrestleMania Backlash pay-per-view.
