10 Ups And 13 Downs From WWE WrestleMania 35


13. Carmella Hides To Win

Leave it to WWE to go for the lamest finish possible for its Women’s WrestleMania Battle Royal.

Whoever books these battle royals definitely leave a lot to be desired when it comes to actually telling a story with the match itself. We saw Ember Moon return to action for the first time in months – with no mention of her absence or return – and run wild in the early stages, only to get tossed unceremoniously by Lana.

Then the Riott Squad took over and eliminated a few women before Dana Brooke tossed Ruby Riott and Liv Morgan, only get bounced herself. Finally, Asuka ran wild until Sarah Logan, who had a couple small moments throughout, appeared to win by tossing the Empress of Tomorrow.

Only, she didn’t. That’s because Carmella had been hiding on the outside, re-entered the match and won by tossing Logan. Because that’s what we needed here. The babyface woman who didn’t eliminate anyone and disappeared mid-match reappeared to win.
