He says WWE picked him to host because he knows how to start a party and end it two days later. He asks everyone to pop open a beverage, forget everything else going around and enjoy WrestleMania.

Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross defeated Kabuki Warriors(Asuka & Kairi Sane) to win the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship. Alexa and Asuka started the match but the defending champ tried to frustrate Bliss by tagging out right away. The challengers took the upper hand but Asuka & Sane took control. After several offense bursts in between, Cross and Bliss hit their finishers on Sane to win the match and the title for the second time.
