Welcome to Ringside News’ live results for WrestleMania 36 Part 2.
Last night’s WrestleMania was a really fun show, capped off by the awesome Boneyard match between The Undertaker and AJ Styles. WWE exceeded my expectations, and I’m excited for tonight’s Part 2.
So what can we expect? Well Brock Lesnar will defend the WWE Championship against Drew McIntyre in the main event, while Charlotte challenges Rhea Ripley for the NXT Women’s Championship, Bayley tackles four other competitors in a Fatal 5-Way for the SmackDown Women’s Championship, and The Street Profits will defend the RAW Tag Team Titles against Angel Garza and Austin Theory.
Those are the title matches, but there are lots of others to look forward to: Bray Wyatt Vs. John Cena in a Firefly Fun House Match, Otis Vs. Dolph Ziggler, Aleister Black Vs. Bobby Lashley, and a Last Man Standing bout between Edge and Randy Orton. And the night will be started with Liv Morgan Vs. Natalya on the Kick-Off Show.
And that’s the preview. The Kick-Off Show for Part 2 will begin at 6 PM EST, and the main card at 7 PM. We don’t know if tonight’s show will run three hours like last night, or four. Either way, we’ll have all the updates live right here, as well as on the Ringside News app. Follow along and enjoy the show!
The Part 2 Kick-Off Show is the same as the first night, with Corey Graves and Peter Rosenberg by a desk. Rosenberg immediately talks about how much he loved the Boneyard Match and how Part 1 was a great escape from real life. The duo rundown tonight’s card.

Rosenberg and Graves discuss John Cena Vs. The Fiend and say they have no idea what a Fun House match is going to be but they’re interested. Graves asks if it’s wise for Cena to accept and if he’s playing into Bray’s hands, and Rosenberg says yes. He says this is going deep into the depths of what The Fiend is. That said, Cena looks as passionate as he’s ever been.
We see a video hyping Rhea Ripley Vs. Charlotte Flair. Rosenberg says that Rhea will be a Hall of Famer someday but tonight the pressure is on Charlotte to prove herself. Graves says as impressive as Rhea is, nobody shines brighter than a Flair. They discuss what it would mean for NXT to have Charlotte as the Champion.
We see the Street Profits backstage and Ford says today is the day. They make some jokes about Garza and Theory and Dawkins tells Charly Caruso that Angel isn’t the only lethario on RAW. They say they want the smoke.
Liv Morgan Vs. Natalya
The bell rings and Liv motions for a handshake but Natalya instead takes her down with a headlock. Morgan uses a headscissors but Nattie kips up. They lock-up and Natalya takes a wristlock, then transitions into a roll-up for a one count.
Nattie swings a kick but Liv grabs it, only for Nattie to roll through into a submission. Liv escapes into a headlock but Natalya fights out. Nattie swings a lariat but Liv ducks it Matrix-style and rolls her up for a two-count. Liv whips Nattie to the corner and taunts her before hitting a hip attack. She looks to his another but Natalya avoids it.

Nattie uses the ropes to hit a springboard atomic drop, then runs over Liv’s back and dropkicks her. Liv gets sent to the apron, blocks a punch, and hangs Nattie on the top rope. Liv tries to shoulder tackle Nattie but gets kicked, then hit with a discus lariat that knocks her to the floor. Nattie gets her back inside and hits a snap suplex, then into a surfboard stretch.
Natalya releases the hold and Morgan takes a headlock but Nattie throws her off. Liv comes back with a one-leg Codebreaker for a near-fall. Liv avoids a roll-up but Nattie hits her with a wheelbarrow facebuster for a near-fall. Natalya looks for the Sharpshooter but Liv rolls her up for a near-fall. They break apart and Liv hits a shining wizard. Nattie attempts the wheelbarrow facebuster again but Liv rolls her up for the win!
Winner: Liv Morgan
We see Dolph Ziggler backstage and Sonya Deville approaches, asking if he’s heard from Mandy Rose. They talk about the situation until Charly Caruso approaches and asks about it and they tell her this isn’t TMZ. Corey Graves sarcastically says that this is proof that you should never mix personal and professional lives.
Video package for Edge Vs. Randy Orton airs. Booker T, Christian, and Renee Young join on webcams to discuss this match. Renee asks Christian what is going through Edge’s head. Christian says the thing that comes to his mind is confidence. He says Edge has came back from retirement and back from that hellacious beating by Randy, so Edge is confident. He says if getting cleared to compete lit a fire under Edge, Randy laying out Beth with an RKO turned it into an inferno. He says Edge has always felt like he had his back against the wall but he suspects he has at least one last great match left. Renee asks Booker if Edge has enough to get the job done and Booker T says Edge has nine years of ring rust. Meanwhile Randy is the single best competitor in the business.

Lastly, we see a video package for Lesnar Vs. McIntyre. Rosenberg says that, as impressive as Drew has been, Lesnar is just too dominant and too violent for the Scotsman to overcome. Graves says history awaits and thus ends the Kick-Off Show.
