Night 1 of WrestleMania 40 delivered on the spectacle of WWE’s biggest show. Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia was rocking throughout the night.

While the in-ring action was not consistently excellent, stars emerged from this night who will stand above the pack for years to come.

Sami Zayn ended Gunther’s record Intercontinental Championship reign in the match of the weekend so far.

Jade Cargill ran through Damage CTRL with an unstoppable fervor that even Bianca Belair and Naomi could only stand back and enjoy.

Awesome Truth and A-Town Down Under captured the tag team championships, breaking them up again into separate gold for Raw and SmackDown.

However, others struggled to solidify their legacy or find their WrestleMania moment.

Jey and Jimmy Uso could not deliver on the dramatic promise of their battle of brothers.

Becky Lynch fell short of her own lofty standards against Rhea Ripley before losing clean to the woman she guaranteed she could beat.

Santos Escobar and Dominik Mysterio got run over by Rey Mysterio and Andrade with the help of Jason Kelce and Lane Johnson.

All of this did not matter as much as the ultimate brawl in the main event, where The Rock and Roman Reigns made Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins pay for stepping up to them.

This was a mixed night for the top stars of the business, but the impact of WrestleMania 40 Night 1 will be felt for a long time to come.
