WrestleMania: Becky Lynch ends Ronda Rousey’s WWE reign

Ronda Rousey's reign as Raw women's champion has come to an end at WWE's WrestleMania 35 in New Jersey.

The former UFC star headlined the event in a double-championship, triple-threat match, alongside Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch.

Ireland's Lynch claimed both titles, pinning Rousey at the 23-minute mark, after a bruising match - the first women's main event at WWE's showcase event.

MetLife Stadium roared with approval, as 'babyface' Lynch raised her newly won prizes above her head.

Earlier, 11-year veteran Kofi Kingston became the first African-American to win the WWE Championship, pinning Daniel Bryan to the delight of the 82,265 fans in attendance.

It was a moment of triumph for one of the most popular talents on the roster, both in the locker room and among the fans.

Triple H topped Dave Batista in a no-holds-barred match - Batista's first since 2015.

The star of Marvel's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' was likely competing for the last time, with a Hollywood career trending upwards.

Bret 'Hitman' Hart made his first WrestleMania appearance in almost a decade, accompanying niece Natayla and her tag-team partner, Beth Phoenix, to the ring for their championship match.

Just 24 hours earlier, Hart was attacked by crazed fan Zach Madsen, during the Hall of Fame ceremony in Brooklyn, New York.

Madsen was quickly halted by several WWE stars and Travis Browne - Rousey's husband and a former UFC heavyweight contender.

Madsen was arrested and charged with three offences, including common assault.

As for the match, Natayla and Phoenix came up short, with the IIconics claiming WWE gold.

Australian pair Peyton Royce and Billie Kay completed a lifelong dream of competing at WrestleMania.

Kay spoke exclusively to Newshub afterwards, expressing her shock when the final bell rang.

"I heard the referee and crowd count to three, and I just started bawling - right there, in front of the world," Kay explained.

"My arms went numb like soft noodles and then when Peyton gave me the belt, I could hardly believe it.

"This is the greatest feeling of my life, to accomplish this with my best friend, my soul mate and my partner in crime."

Cancer-beater Roman Reigns made short work of the 'Scottish Psychopath' Drew Mcyntyre.

The 'Big Dog' recently dealt with a health scare, which forced him to take six months leave, while he fought a leukemia relapse.

Finally, Olympic gold medallist Kurt Angle signed off, losing his final match against former NFL player Baron Corbin.

The 50-year-old has pulled the curtain on a 20-year career that included several WWE championship reigns and many unforgettable moments.

Angle is regarded as one of the greatest ring performers of all time, but he won't be gone completely.

The American has taken on a backstage role to assist with creative and develop young talent.
