101,763 people crammed into AT&T Stadium to witness WrestleMania tonight and it was one of the most shocking shows of all time.

We saw a title made, shock returns and debuts and even a competitive appearance by an NBA legend!

A night to remember

Without a doubt though, the biggest shock came from one of the greatest of all time, The Rock, who shortly after announcing the record WrestleMania attendance had an interesting confrontation.

Rock was met by the Wyatt Family and after a bit of back and forth, The Great One would invite one Wyatt family member for a match, that unfortunate member was Erick Rowan.

Roman and The Rock lasted the duration of a rock bottom and the three count (00:06) - Shorter than Sheamus vs Daniel Bryan from WrestleMania XXVIII.

The Rock set a WrestleMania record for the shortest match of all time shortly after announcing the attendance record.

Following the short lived match, the Wyatts would seemingly prepare to attack the Great One before the last big return of the night ... John Cena.

Cena returned months ahead of schedule and and helped his former WrestleMania opponent to fend off the Wyatts.

There were three great returns earlier in the night as the League of Nations were confronted by a trio of legends in Stone Cold Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels and Mick Foley.

Two shock winners!

The show opened with the seven man ladder match for the Intercontinental Championship and also gave us the first huge shock of the night.

With Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn and even Dolph Ziggler tipped to be walking away with the title, no-one would have predicted the eventual winner - Zack Ryder.

Ryder claimed the belt for his own and finally lived out a WrestleMania dream as he celebrated in the ring with his father.

The second big surprise winner came in former of NXT's Lone Wolf Baron Corbin, who entered the Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal and walked away with the trophy.

The Lone Wolf would survive Mark Henry, Big Show and Kane to go on to win the third annual match.

Corbin winning wasn't the only shock that came from the battle royal as the final man to enter was none other than LA Lakers and NBA legend Shaquille O'Neil

The basketball hero entered the ring and towered over even the Big Show and would eventually be eliminated during a confrontation with the World's Largest Athlete.
