WrestleMania 40 Sunday kicked off with the World Heavyweight Championship on the line when Seth Rollins and Drew McIntyre squared circle in the Lincoln Financial Field. In a grueling battle going back and forth, the Scottish Warrior ended up winning the World Heavyweight Championship and fulfilling his dream of winning the title in front of fans. 

While celebrating his massive win, McIntyre mocked CM Punk, who was present as the special guest commentator, when the Best in the World attacked the new World Heavyweight Champion. Right after the attack, Damian Priest shocked the world by cashing in his MITB contract and becoming the new champion. 

With the biggest win of his career, Damian Priest becomes the first Puerto-Rican Superstar to win a championship in WWE in the past 50 years. Pedro Morales holds the record of being the first and the only Puerto-Rican star to become a champion in WWE, until now. 

Damian Priest lost the tag team championships on Saturday and became the World Heavyweight Champion on Sunday. After a roller coaster ride at WrestleMania itself, a plethora of new opportunities open up for the star on the red brand in the next few weeks.
