Losers: Sasha Banks, Bayley, and the women's tag team scene

In easily the dumbest decision of the night, Sasha Banks and Bayley dropped the women's tag team titles to...the IIconics.

Aside from them just not being very good, this could preclude the match that everyone actually wanted to see - Sasha Banks and Bayley vs. Kairi Sane and Io Shirai at the next TakeOver.

Hopefully, this decision will be reversed at Money in the Bank. There's simply much more than Banks and Bayley can do as champions than the IIconics.

Winner: Kofi Kingston

In what was the match of the night, Kofi Kingston came through and secured his place as WWE Champion. What an unbelievable moment. Unexpected from start to finish, this has been wrestling at its best.

Where Kofi Kingston goes from here as champion is anyone's guess. In many respects, it can only go downhill from here, but what a moment this was. This is the stuff that WrestleMania is supposed to be made of. 

Loser: Drew McIntyre

Yes, it would have been unlikely for Reigns to lose here, but it was still the wrong decision. The loss sets McIntyre back tremendously and nips in the bud a potential challenger to the new Universal Champion Seth Rollins.

That title will find its way back to Reigns eventually, but it's way too soon for him to be in title contention. Otherwise, the fans will turn on him. This could have been the start of a long journey back for him. Instead, he got the victory, with not much left to do now, at McIntyre's expense.
