The day we have waited a year for has come and gone.
WrestleMania XXVIII was filled with action-packed moments that will be remembered for years to come.
Was WrestleMania XXVIII the best WrestleMania ever?
I think it most definitely is in the conversation, but that is a question for another article.
This article features 15 of the most memorable moments from tonight's event.
They are not going to be in the order of worst to first because, quite honestly, that would be pretty hard to do, in my opinion.
Instead, they will be listed in chronological order from how they happened throughout the night.
Daniel Bryan vs. Sheamus for the World Heavyweight Championship opened WrestleMania.
It was a nice surprise since it was thought that Punk vs. Jericho would be the opening bought.
Many individuals, including myself, believed that this match had the potential to steal the show. What we got instead was an absolute travesty.
With both men in the ring, the referee called for the bell. Before they could make contact, Bryan went over to get a good-luck kiss from A.J.
This was the kiss of death.
When Bryan turned around he was greeted with the Brogue Kick. Sheamus got the pin, and the title.
This match goes down as one of the quickest matches in WrestleMania history, and as one of the biggest disappointments.
The match between Orton and Kane was better than most people expected it would be. The build-up for the match was not as strong as it could have been. Basically, Kane wanted to fight Orton over a handshake from last year.
Both men battled hard, and neither could get an obvious advantage during the match.
The finish came with Orton bounding on Kane in the corner. Kane was left, dazed, sitting on the top turnbuckle.
Orton went up to continue the onslaught when Kane grabbed Orton around the throat. Kane then executed a chokeslam from the second rope, allowing Kane to get the win.
Orton could not win on his birthday.
For weeks, Cody Rhodes would haunt Big Show about his past at WrestleMania. Big Show has had a history of having anti-WrestleMania moments, and Rhodes made sure to continue to show the world all of them.
Big Show was determined to come out of this WrestleMania with a moment that would stand the test of time.
Coming into the match, Rhodes was on a 233-day reign as intercontinental champion, one of the longest reigns in almost a decade.
Rhodes tried to use his speed to his advantage. For a while it worked, but eventually the strength of Big Show was too much for Rhodes to overcome.
Big Show connected with his massive right hand, knocking out Rhodes and knocking out his own WrestleMania curse.
Big Show won the match, and captured the only title in the WWE that had escaped him.
WrestleMania is the biggest event of the year in wrestling. It would only be fitting to have one of the greatest wrestling commentators there to call the action.
Across the Internet, speculation was building on whether or not Jim Ross would be sitting at commentary.
Before the Hell in a Cell match, the announcement was made, and Jim Ross made his way down to ringside.
Ross' commentary would make the next match even more special than it was.
What role would Shawn play in this match? That was the question on everyone's mind.
For the beginning of the match, it was if Shawn was not even part of it. He stayed out of the way and let the men fight.
Eventually, we saw Shawn begin to have a breakdown.
Triple H was battering Undertaker with multiple chair shots. It was painful to watch, even for the ref.
Triple H was out to make a statement.
It was not long until Triple H brought his sledgehammer into play.
Shawn began pleading with his best friend, while Triple H kept telling Shawn to "end it, or I will."
Shawn would begin pleading with Undertaker to let him ring the bell.
Triple H was positioned to strike Undertaker in the head, and Shawn quickly grabbed the hammer away.
Shawn would not get physically involved until Undertaker put him in the Hell's Gate.
When Shawn came to, he hit Undertaker with Sweet Chin Music, and Triple H connected with the pedigree.
Shawn would only count two since Undertaker kicked out, and Shawn cowered in the corner, as if he was about to cry.
It was clear that Shawn was torn between his best friend, and the man who ended his career.
This match would have been amazing, no matter who the ref was, but with the added emotion of Shawn, this match was legendary.
The end of an era was how this match was billed. The immortal streak of The Undertaker was on the line once more, against the man who took him to his absolute limits the year before. Add into it a referee who has history with both men.
For 30 minutes, these wrestling legends gave us all we could handle.
Triple H was out to prove that he was better than Shawn Michaels, by ending the streak of The Undertaker.
Undertaker was determined to prove that no man could ever defeat him at WrestleMania.
Undertaker and Triple H demolished each other. We saw multiple chair shots, sledge hammer strikes, blood, numerous near falls and the undeniable determination of two men who refused to lose.
This match stole the show, and will go down as one of the greatest matches in history.
What does the future hold for Undertaker and Triple H?
Only time will tell.
One of the most iconic moments happened after the Hell in a Cell match.
Triple H laid motionless in the ring, while Undertaker laid in the corner. Both men clearly exhausted after leaving it all in the ring.
Shawn went over to Undertaker, helped him to his feet and the two men shared an emotional embrace.
Shawn went over to check on his best friend, while Undertaker posed for the crowd.
Undertaker and Shawn helped Triple H to his feet, and side by side the three legends walked up the ramp, and they were greeted with a standing ovation from the crowd.
At the top of the ramp, the three turned to acknowledge the crowd and embraced each other.
The respect these three have for each other is awesome. What these men have done for the business will never be forgotten.
In my opinion, this was the moment of the night.
This truly was the end of an era.
Team Johnny vs. Team Teddy followed the epic Hell in a Cell match.
Each GM hand picked wrestlers to represent the brands of Raw and SmackDown.
The GM with the winning team would have sole control of both shows.
The match itself was a solid match.
It looked as if Zack Ryder was setting up to get the win, when Eve joined him in the ring to chant with the crowd.
Ryder became distracted, costing Teddy's team the match, and Teddy his job.
Eve cemented her heel status further when she kicked Ryder in the groin, and walked out on him.
There really was not much of a question about which team would win. Team Johnny had way more talent on it, and Johnny is a much more compelling character on TV.
It will be interesting to see what Johnny does on his first SmackDown as GM.
If Triple H is the cerebral assassin, then Jericho needs to be called the cerebral sniper.
Before the Punk/Jericho match, Laurinaitis told Punk that a new stipulation was added to his match.
If Punk gets disqualified, he will lose the WWE Championship.
Jericho tried to take full advantage of this new stipulation. Jericho knew that he could push the buttons of Punk by talking about his family.
Punk would begin to pummel Jericho after each button was pushed, and the ref was at the brink of calling for the bell.
Jericho got under the skin of Punk so bad, that at one point Punk brought a chair into the ring and was ready to strike Jericho with it. Jericho would beg Punk to hit him with it. Eventually, Punk would come to his senses and realize that if he did that, he would lose the belt.
Jericho proved why he is one of the best heels in history. His in-ring psychology and ability to get into the head of his opponent is awesome.
This was a great way to allow Punk to "Be a Star," and overcome the bullying tactics of Jericho.
The first big bump of the match came when Jericho suplexed Punk from inside the ring to the floor.
This was a pretty impressive spot.
Wrestlers are suplexed all the time, but rarely do we see them go from the ring and go 10 feet to the floor.
A move like this proves just how much each wrestler has to trust the other while in the ring together. If this move is executed improperly, Punk would have been severely hurt.
It is moves like this that make me wonder how these guys can do what they do for so long.
After connecting with a Lionsault, Jericho went for the cover. Punk was able to kick out at two.
Jericho, sensing weakness, climbed up the ropes to hit a high-risk move.
Punk was able to get to his feet and stop Jericho.
After a series of chops by Punk, Punk climbed up the ropes. Punk stood on the top rope, jumped and wrapped his legs around Jericho's head. Punk was trying to execute a hurricanrana.
Jericho blocked it.
Jericho jumped down to the mat while still holding Punk in an inverted tombstone position. When Jericho landed, Punk's head barely missed the mat. Punk could have been injured badly if Jericho botched this move.
From the position Punk was in, Jericho was easily able to apply the Walls of Jericho.
This was a very cool spot.
Who is the best in the world? That is the question this match revolved around.
The pace of the match began slower than expected, but once the pace quickened we witnessed a wrestling clinic.
The match had some great spots to it: Jericho suplexed Punk from the ring to the floor, Jericho blocking a top rope hurricanrana and turning it into the Walls of Jericho and we even saw the Liontamer for a couple of seconds.
The last two minutes of the match is where the action really picked up. Jericho had Punk in the Walls of Jericho, and Punk was able to counter it. Both men went back and forth with small packages. Punk locked in the Anaconda Vice, and Jericho was able to counter and attempt to put Punk in the Walls of Jericho again.
Another reversal from Punk allowed him to re-apply the Anaconda Vice, and this time Jericho could not get his knees to Punk's head.
Jericho tapped, and Punk retained the belt.
CM Punk made his point. He is the best in the world.
After eight years, The Rock was finally back, competing at a WrestleMania.
A match one year in the making was finally here.
The Rock last competed at Survivor Series in 2011 to help shake off some of the ring rust, but wrestling there and wrestling at WrestleMania are two different things.
It was been well-reported that The Rock was doing everything he could to get back into ring shape.
Would The Rock be able to compete at the level he has been known for?
After all the amazing matches, would the crowd have enough energy left to cheer for this once-in-a-lifetime match.
Cena made his entrance and was greeted by many boos. The Rock came out and the crowd did not seem to have as loud of a reaction that I would have anticipated.
Was the crowd really out of gas?
Once the bell rang, the crowd erupted. The moment they had been waiting for was here.
I have not heard a crowd that loud, for a main event, in a long time. What made it incredible was the fact that the event was taking place at a stadium.
Usually in a stadium the noise from the crowd seems softer because there is no roof and the sound escapes. I cannot imagine how loud the crowd would have been had there been a roof on the building.
The energy from the crowd helped drive the emotion of the match, and made it seem even more special than it was.
Once in a lifetime is how this match was promoted. Two icons, from separate generations competing to see who is the better man.
The match was hyped for over a year.
The Rock has beaten everyone there is to beat in the WWE and needed to defeat John Cena to prove that he is the best of all time.
John Cena needed to defeat The Rock to prove he is the best, and if he lost, he claimed his life would be over.
The debate raged for months on who should win this match and why.
After the match began, we saw both men have nice streaks of offense. It was hard for either man to get the upper hand for too long.
Both men were able to hit with their finishers, and apply their submission moves, but both men were able to kick out, and not give up.
It was hard to figure out who had the upper hand, and who would come out victorious until a lapse in judgement was shown by Cena.
Cena had The Rock laid out in the middle of the ring. Cena looked as if he was going to do the five-knuckle shuffle once more, but decided against it. He wanted to embarrass The Rock.
Cean was going to attempt to finish off The Rock with his own move, The People's Elbow. Cena ran the ropes, and when he got back to The Rock, he was met with a Rock Bottom.
Rock covered, and the ref counted to three.
The cockiness of John Cena cost him the match.
What happens to Cena now?
