The WrestleMania night 2 main event was widely applauded for the match itself, and some of the intricate moments associated.
Roman Reigns, Edge, and Daniel Bryan lived up to the main event billing that saw Reigns emerge victorious, retaining his title. Fightful Select was able to report a ton of information surrounding the main event.
WrestleMania's night two main event featured an awful lot of story to it, and as is the case with most Reigns-related creative, we're told that Paul Heyman was instrumental in orchestrating it. Even beyond that, we were also informed that Roman Reigns going over was the plan since early on in the angle, though it's not known if that wavered at any point. Many of the plans for WrestleMania were changed in the days leading up to the show, but it doesn't appear as if this was one.
Heyman's involvement is much like what he did with Brock Lesnar, where much of the creative and matches filter through him. Edge and Daniel Bryan also contributed ideas heavily, and it was said to have been a big collaborative effort. The double submission headbutt spot was a Daniel Bryan idea.
Those that we've spoke to said that the match went over well backstage, and to no surprise, Roman Reigns is getting rave reviews for his performances.
The decision to add Daniel Bryan was a discussion for well over a month before it happened, but was only set in stone to some of the talent the week of Fastlane.
In addition, Michael Hayes was the credited producer of the match.
