WWE WrestleMania Backlash results: Universal Championship match, Seth Rollins post-match attack

In the main event of WWE WrestleMania Backlash, Roman Reigns put his WWE Universal Championship on the line against Cesaro. Earlier in the show, Jimmy Uso tried to get his brother Jey to leave Reigns and Paul Heyman. Reigns walked out for his match without Jey.

In the early moments of the match, Cesaro landed on his right shoulder and elbow and the announcer’s pointed out that Cesaro favored his bad arm and shoulder throughout the match.

Late in the match, Cesaro’s arm became a bigger factor. The first really close near fall happened after Cesaro kicked out after getting hit with the Superman punch. Cesaro fought back with an attempt at an uppercut but his arm was bothering him and Reigns locked in the guillotine. Cesaro powered out and then he locked in the sharpshooter. Cesaro transitioned into the crossface but Cesaro’s bad arm allowed Reigns to power out.

Reigns won the match by forcing Cesaro to pass out to the guillotine submission hold and there was no outside interference. Jey Uso walked out to attack Cesaro but then Seth Rollins’ music played and he walked out. Rollins and Reigns stood face to face before Rollins went to attack Cesaro. Rollins continued the attack on Cesaro with a steel chair outside of the ring.

Rollins finished off Cesaro with a con-chair-to on Cesaro against the steel steps and a curb stomp on the floor.
