Nice touch at the end of the Undertaker match: After the pinfall, Lesnar's music didn't play. Not for about a full minute. Long enough for everyone to go, "HOLY SHIT!" It was as if even Kevin Dunn was stunned by the result.

Bryan wins! YES! YES! YES! YES! (He kinda had to after Undertaker lost. The New Orleans crowd couldn't have handled the Streak falling and Bryan losing in the same night).

Well, I'd say Lesnar pretty much has to get a title shot now, right? Might not be right away, though.

Watched from my PS4....like everyone else, no issues with the app. some hiccups but nothing that leaving the feed and coming back didn't solve.

I was absolutely in shock at the ending of the Streak. I think the last time I was that shocked was when Austin joined McMahon at WM17. It was obviously his time.

For anyone who is upset over that finish, keep this in mind. The way that Taker looked in that match, if he had won no one would have bought it. As it is, a physically superior man whooped Taker's ass and sent him home. It was the right thing to do...like it or not.

I am exhausted.

Paul Heyman in the corner of the ring mirrored my reaction almost exactly. That man worked that match perfectly. None of the screens reading 21-1 seemed real even as Taker was leaving. Amazing. Just amazing. The biggest surprise of the night when the show STARTED with Hogan, Austin, and Rock.

Big standing applause to Triple H. The man's match was stellar, and he busted out some moves we haven't seen from him before. If this was HIS last match, he did it right.

The table RKO bomb was fantastic until the replay shows Orton landing square on a monitor. I feared for him more than Bryan.

So does Vickie sic Karma on AJ? Who's left?

Loved the brevity of the Shield match and LOVED the facemasks.

Who were the blondes with Bryan after the title match?

So exhausted. Well worth the money. (I saw it through DirecTV. Glad the network held up.)

Spooky scary eerie that Undertaker's streak of great matches ended too. It's like his body gave out for real.

Real considerate of Batista to waive his ironclad contractual title win. Dude kind of stuck it to the marks tonight. "Logically" Bryan should've pinned Randy, but I suppose he had already done that many times.

On the night where the rest of the old guard fell hard, there was no way Cena should've lost on the same card as Taker. Wyatts have John so spooked he couldn't come up with an elaborate entrance.

CESARO. Amazing array of battle royal mystery entrants Yoshi Tatsu, David Otunga, Tyson Kidd, and Xavier Woods. I fear Christian is finally dead for real, you guys. Claimed by the Christian Wrestlemania curse.

They could've ended the show after the Raw opening interview tbqh.

Cameron did the Codebreaker! I've seen every episode of Total Divas and I can't think of a funny name. GirlByeker is as far as I've gotten.

The Undertaker lost!!! Now why is Sting even coming!?! Poor Sting.

I really didn't think anyone could possibly have their time cut tonight and yet there was the Shield. Their insta hot tag was a pretty amazing sign of things to come. It was like reverse polarity of all their matches with Daniel Bryan.

Wish Steph and Hunter would've teased the Bryan/AJ kiss spot. Steph was marvelous.

It was the best WrestleMania in quite a while.

I watched it through the IPad. There were a couple of five second glitches, but other than that, no problems.

I had to laugh at Hogan goofing up "Superdome" with "Silverdome" not once, but twice. And then Austin, by purpose. Hogan/Austin/Rock was a fun moment.

Thank you Bray Wyatt for adding new material for the fans in case a match gets boring with "He's Got The Whole World In His Hands" song, just for them to entertain themselves. Guess we'll be hearing that for the next three months...especially tomorrow when a good portion of the Superdome crowd is going to the New Orleans Arena (or whatever they call it now). I was surprised Cena went over.

Cesaro was a man tonight, finally spinning around Swagger and winning the ARMBAR.

Shield vs. Outlaws/Kane stunk. Way too short and one sided. At least the double-triple powerbomb was great to watch.

Lesnar/Undertaker shocked me!!! I never saw it coming. I thought, maybe in a year or two, but not now. Usually, if they go to the crowd for shocked emotions, I have to laugh about it. Not this time, I felt the same way. Just wait until Heyman starts gloating tomorrow.

Divas match was a mess. Who would have thought that AJ would still have the title, and the UT's streak is over.

Bryan/HHH was a good match, and the beatdown postmatch brought more intrigue to the main event.

Triple threat match was really good. Orton took a nasty bump on the monitor during the Batista Bomb/RKO combination. I expected the HHH run-in since it was no disqualification. Great match, great end, great celebration.

First off, numerous jump back/re-buffering issues on the PS3. The pre-show match, Divas, and Main Event all worked flawlessly, but I ended up switching over to the iPad to watch the Taker match. The streaming on iPad worked flawlessly. For ten bucks, I don't feel like I was cheated.

Couldn't help but notice that Cole referred to the next pay-per-view as the next WWE Special, it looks like pay-per-view is the new dirty word.

I was stunned as everyone was at the end of Taker match. The finish seemed to come out of nowhere. But, at the end, it made sense. Taker looked completely spent. I do believe he deserves the biggest of send offs. Also, I do like the possibilities that they have now with an open slot in future Wrestlemanias.

Bryan killed it tonight. I want to re-watch him and Trips, and then re-watch the main event.

Did you pirate the feed or something? Other than a glitch here or there it was great on my PS3.

IJ freaked out when Daniel Bryan kicked out of the pedigree. She thought that was it and we were going to have the Battle of Evolution.

I loved the triple-double powerbomb and I love the Shield. I am so glad they didn't break-up in the second match of a loaded Mania. A break-up on a random Raw would be better.

I actually yelled "Holy Shit" over Cesaro chucking Big Show.

I couldn't root for Bray Wyatt with a little Cena fan next to me, but I'll be damned if the crowd singing "he's got the whole words in his hands" wasn't AMAZING.

And then...Lesnar won. I was just so stunned it happened that I couldn't really react. I can't wait for the story to come out about how they came up with the ending and how they decided to go that way.

IJ really wanted a Bella to walk out of WM with the Divas title, but the Taker loss left her so stunned that she didn't really care that AJ won. I kind of felt like AJ was going to win when the WWE talking point was there was NO way she could retain in such a match.

And then...the main event. How glorious. IJ was sobbing - legitimately wiping away crocodile tears - when Bryan was on the stretcher. Then she thought he was done with all the false finishes. What a rollercoaster of emotions. Well done, WWE.

Watched with friends. Didn't use my Network account as my friend had already ordered the PPV which I figured would be more stable anyway. Glad (and shocked) to hear there were minimal issues as I'll be watching all PPVs that way from now on.

Missed the pre-show match.

YOU GUYS Rock and Austin have a secret handshake. The best.
PALS.

Bryan vs HHH was real good and exactly what it should have been.

Love love loved the Shield squash. Exactly what they should have done. The Outlaws shouldn't come close to posing a physical threat to the Shield. Perfectly booked (if possibly accidently so).

Cesaro was the best possible choice to win the ARMBAR. Not a great match but a great ending.

I don't think Cena should have won but in hindsight I can see why they made that call. Why are people always so surprised by Wyatt's crab walk? I can do that and I'm way fatter than him.

Fuck. Fuck. Undertaker. Fuck. Amazing. When Brock hit the last F5, I thought "This might be where a normal match would end. I wonder what they're going to d- ...what." Then I shouted HOLY FUCK. Best crowd reaction ever. That poor black guy is going to be a meme forever. I bet Miz Girl and Brock Lesnar Guy already sent condolences.

Ladyfight was what it was.

Main event started real slow and I think the crowd was still WTFfing about Undertaker. Ended perfectly and was everything it should have been except for Orton's back on the monitor. That poor guy.

Not the best Mania ever for wrestling, but a great combination of wrestling and newsworthiness.

Watched half on PS3, half on PS4, didn't have any serious problems. Buffering is annoying and I could do without the drop in quality that also backs me up two seconds, but the big fear was some complete implosion like Tyler Breeze NXT Arrival and that didn't happen. There obviously a problem with whatever Microsoft/Xbox doing as a middleman, but this was a pretty great night for the tech side.

WWE's supposed to announce the number of Network signups tomorrow. They're not letting it out before then, but Meltzer says sponsors were given the impression WWE was happy with the number. Brock beating Undertaker is a creative risk - one that'll hopefully pay off around a Bryan/Brock match at SummerSlam, I'd guess - but WWE Network was a business defining financial risk and it looks like that one paid off.

No, though he or someone claiming to be him was posting them on Twitter, was way off and lost his mind. Alvarez/Meltzer had mentioned there were at least two scripts for tonight, with the idea WWE would let the false one get out and keep the real one quiet until the show.

Brock beating Undertaker is so inconceivable, that could've gotten out and still no one would've believed it. I mean, I was in awe of what a great job Paul Heyman did in the promo for the match to sell the idea of a Brock win that even he probably didn't think was happening.

This is going to be a weird WrestleMania in history, and maybe it's going to take some time to detach from it to put in context. Both Bryan matches were very good, as was Cena/Wyatt and the tag team match. They got memorable spots out of the battle royal and the trios match that can be shown forever, even if the matches themselves weren't that much. But those are all going to be the background to the End of the Streak, and probably the End of the Undertaker, in a not so great way to go.

(NEW CRAZY PET THEORY: CM Punk wasn't ever upset about the title picture, but found out Brock was going to get the win over Undertaker, instead of someone like him who's there all the time, meanwhile he'll lose to HHH, so he lost his mind and went home. Hey, it's a better theory than CM Punk showing up tonight OR tomorrow as surprise.)

Which is exactly why Cena won. Everyone with a special entrance (HHH, Bray Wyatt, The Undertaker, Randy Orton) lost their match.

I feel like if there were any stragglers who believe that Daniel Bryan isn't really a top star, tonight they got unequivocally proven wrong. It was amazing to see that crowd go from completely dead post Taker, to just cheering a few sporadic Bryan spots in the first 5-10 minutes of the main event, then getting completely back into it around the time of the HHH/Steph run in. I don't think there is another full time WWE wrestler who could have possibly got the crowd back into it this year after the streak ended. In a year of great Daniel Bryan crowd reactions, this is the ultimate feather in his cap.

It seems like people who are high on the Bryan win are thinking this is one of the best WMs ever, and people had their buzz ruined by Brock's win are going the opposite way, but I think this show will settle in as a very good but not greatest Mania. There have been Manias with more good matches and Manias with better single matches, but who would've guessed when we saw the leaked card weeks ago that where this WM would really deliver is not in match quality, but in historic WrestleMania moments?

Don't get me wrong though, I think this show had two excellent Daniel Bryan matches and Wyatt/Cena was often captivating, although I don't know if WrestleMania was the right setting for this kind of real personal story based match where Cena overcomes all.

HHH vs. Bryan was a **** match that almost disappointed me because I think so much of Bryan, but then I remembered that HHH barely wrestles and got my head out of my butt. Loved the big impact arm spots on the table and ring apron, went nuts for HHH doing a frickin release tiger suplex.

It is crazy how strong they booked Bryan tonight. If a fan on an internet message board had fantasy booked this not too long ago everyone would've laughed at them. He overcame every possible hurdle short of getting shot in the gut, and won clean twice.

How in the world does Brock end the streak? When Brock hit the third F5 I thought "That's weird, is this really the only near fall Brock has?" and then he...won. I have to figure either Taker decided he was too old for this shit very shortly before the match happened, or he is such a UFC fan that he would rather put over a real fighter instead of Cena or an up and comer. Disappointing, but I feel like it did end up giving the main event more of a "Anything could happen now" feeling which helped the near falls, and with this momentum I feel like Brock/Bryan is a good choice for your Summerslam/month later, "Lets do a big match so everyone will renew their Network sub" match.

Between the WWE mount rushmore to start the show, it being the first PPV on the WWE Network, the streak ending and Daniel Bryan winning, this is one of the most memorable Manias in recent years. If however in a couple years we find Bryan is still one of the top two or three biggest stars in the company, Undertaker is retired, PPV is dead with the Network still doing well, and Cesaro and at least one Shield member are in the main event mix, then I feel like this show gets upgraded to one of the top five most noteworthy WrestleManias of all time, and becomes one of the most dramatic changing of the guards I can remember.

I can't believe it's already available on demand on the Network. I thought there'd be some delay to appease the PPV carriers. I already watched the parts I missed. Worth. Every. Penny.

Yeah, it's in the FAQ, actually. Still surprising that that will be SOP, though.

Only issue with that logic: Summerslam takes place a week before the first WWE Network subscriptions come up for renewal.

While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

Yeah, WWE is in a weird position now where between SummerSlam and renewal season they almost need two top tier shows in a row. Although, maybe if PPV business is proven to be all dried up in the face of the Network, SummerSlam goes down in importance and uh...SeptemberSlam goes up. Or maybe they could get real sneaky and do some kind of "This Tuesday in Texas" style PPV cliffhanger off of SummerSlam leading to the next PPV.

OMG!!! I am back in my hostel in NOLA right now, and I am still under shock about the Streak ending before my very eyes. All of us in the "Silverdome" could not believe it when it happened. Unreal. Still.

And the whole "bullshit" surrounding Daniel Bryan was perfect booking. Kudos to everyone involved, especially Triple H. D-Bryan now officially is THE MAN.
