WWE WrestleMania Live: AJ Styles & Omos win

They just made Omos look like THAT DUDE man. Incredibly strong booking. And obviously new Tag Team Champions. Omos didn't have to do much, nor should he have, but he was perfect in his WWE debut, pinning Xavier Woods and The New Day to win he and AJ Styles the RAW Tag Team Championship.

hat finish was epic. Cesaro wins at Mania against Rollins. Cesaro is such a freakishly talented athlete! Maybe now that he's got this big win at WrestleMania 37 he'll finally get a main event title push. Doubtful but I hope he does.
