WWE's 10 best matches of April 2019
April is supposed to be WWE's biggest month. With its hosting WrestleMania, an NXT TakeOver event, and the annual Superstar Shakeup, we can usually expect several match of the year candidates to come during those 30 days when the weather starts getting warmer and the spring blooms come out (unless you're in the southern hemisphere, in which case, never mind!).
April 2019 delivered on that promise with five match of the year candidates, though that was mostly thanks to the NXT TakeOver event. WrestleMania 35 only delivered one true classic match, but what a match it was!
In fairness to the Show of Shows, though, it boasted two other of April's best matches, even though they weren't quite match of the year candidates. Elsewhere, you could find some on Raw and NXT. Velveteen Dream in particular featured in two of the month's best matches.
The Superstar Shakeup freshened up the rosters, but did it influence any of April's best matches? Without further ado, here are the 10 matches you should go back and watch from the month of April.
#10 Seth Rollins vs. Brock Lesnar (WrestleMania 35)
At long last, the nightmare is over! Seth Rollins defeated Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 35 to liberate the long-suffering Universal Championship. The match was actually decent, too, though not a world-burner.
In a deviation from the standard Brock Lesnar match, the champion attacked the Rumble winner before the bell rang, laying him out in the ringside area and exhausting him. Then, when the bell rang, Lesnar looked the favorite to win the match, but a twist of fate made the referee stumble.
Seizing the chance, Rollins hit Lesnar with a low blow and three curbstomps to capture the campionship. It was a hot opener to the biggest show of the year.
