Wrestlemania 2022 Night 1 Results, Updates, Live Recap and Surprises

So far, there have been some incredibly funny moments for Night 1 of WWE’s Wrestlemania 38. At PPV 2022, Logan Paul previously teamed with The Miz, defeating Rey and Dominik Mysterio; However, The Miz hilariously turned on Paul right after the game ended. You can check out the results and full recap of each game so far below. There was also a very funny match between Happy Corbin and Drew McIntyre where McIntyre tried to murder Madcap Moss with a sword – don’t worry, Moss is fine.

GameSpot will broadcast Wrestlemania 2022 live from AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas. And while the PPV has a total of 14 matches on the map, Night 1 will consist of seven matches along with a confrontation between “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and Kevin Owens as a “Battle of the Stunners” culminates at this year’s PPV. Keep coming back to GameSpot throughout the evening for all of your Wrestlemania needs, including any surprises that may happen as well.

Logan Paul returns to WWE when he teams with The Miz to take on the Mysterios. Another moment to keep fans focused on the bit is Seth Rollins against a mystery opponent – to be revealed at the PPV. Will it be the long-rumored Cody Rhodes returning to WWE, or will wrestling fans scream at their screens as Seth’s opponent’s opening theme begins “Here Comes the Money…”?

Additionally, there are three championship matches in a Night 1, including the Smackdown and Raw Women’s Championships and the Smackdown Tag Team Championship. And all this only for the first night, because the PPV has really gotten too big for one night.

The Usos (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura & Rick Boogs (Smackdown Tag Team Championship)

The Usos win by pin.

Mat: This is the first time I’ve been in the same room right next to Chris watching a wrestling program. It’s a very special night. Also, Boogs opens the evening, which is special. It all makes sense now. Boogs was also sponsored by adult, alcoholic lemonade. Is it a good alcoholic drink? Not at all, but I’m glad someone is giving Boogs money to play guitar. I love Rick’s feats of strength, which make no sense but are a joy to watch – until Boogs injures his knee. At first I didn’t think it was real, but from what appears in the press box, paramedics were with him the entire time. That moment seemed to put a damper on a really great match – as the Usos are a brilliant tag team – but the injury didn’t really deliver this match as it should have been. Get better Boogs.

6/10

Chris: Even at Wrestlemania, Pat McAfee has a dance in his heart when Shinsuke Nakamura and Rick Boogs make their way to the ring, and I love him for it. Starting this match with Mania is the right choice. Good versus evil and four seriously entertaining wrestlers. What’s not to enjoy? Unfortunately, this match started with what appeared to be a legitimate injury to Rick Boogs, which took him out of the match. There’s no telling how bad the injury is, but paramedics were with him ringside until the end of the game. It’s unfortunate because this match seemed to set off a fantastic start to the show that appeared to be canceled. Still, what we got was pretty good and the crowd was alive and well for it.

Drew McIntyre vs. Happy Corbin

McIntyre wins via pin.

Mat: Can we all take a minute to congratulate Madcap Riddick Moss on his victory in the Andre The Giant battle royale? From now on please remain silent for an appropriate amount of time (10-25 minutes)… Also in social situations please put on a shirt, it’s weird. Here’s the thing, I must be living in a bubble because when Drew McIntyre came out this crowd exploded and I had no idea people liked him that much. Then again, I’m the fool who LOVES Happy Corbin. Although I’m not particularly on Team McIntyre, these two guys put on a really fun show. It was a nice powerhouse brawl and a solid recovery from injury in the previous game. However, the moment after the game when McIntyre tried to murder Moss with the sword was so weird. And now the ring ropes are destroyed.

7.5/10

Chris: Don’t mind, I’m silent for Mat. Drew McIntyre, however, doesn’t respect the silence, swings his sword around and causes the fire to explode. come on drew Madcap is now a champion. The funny thing about Happy Corbin is that he wore exactly the same clothes as Bray Wyatt in his early days. But it’s a totally different character — and it works for him. To be honest, this is the match I was least looking forward to. I love Happy Corbin, but Drew McIntyre has been kind of old-fashioned to me for a while. What I appreciate about it, though, is that it’s just two big guys beating the shit out of each other. There’s not much of that on the Night 1 map, so a good Powerhouse Brawl is a welcome addition. This match was a lot more entertaining than I expected, despite the result we all expected. Corbin is such a good goofy heel and his dynamic with Madcap Moss is great. Sure, Drew tried to murder Madcap after the match, but whatever.

Rey & Dominik Mysterio vs The Miz & Logan Paul

The Miz and Logan Paul win via pin.

Mat: Logan Paul had a Pokémon card around his neck. I respect that. He sold a shot too many early on, which I don’t respect. This is a celebrity match so overall expectations weren’t high but Paul showed he cares early on and he had some practice and showed a nice power slam amongst other moves – like a pretty good blockbuster later. The comment spends way too much time talking about the follower count and it’s annoying. I am old. Listen, Logan Paul isn’t my type, but he was freaking awesome to watch in the ring, especially when he did some fantastic heel work like the Three Amigos and the Frogsplash. This match didn’t deserve to be this much fun – and the icing on the cake was that the Miz turned on Paul at the end.

8/10

Chris: I loved that Dominic and Rey made the stage door pop that Rey made in his early WWE days. Logan Paul is a natural heel because he’s known for being kinda awful, and he seems to enjoy that fact. Also, he has a born Heel The Miz on his side. Paul certainly played on the heel side throughout the game, even with Eddie Guerrerro’s moves and mannerisms against Rey. Ultimately, Miz took advantage of the Mysterios focused on Paul and was able to sneak out a win for his team – and then for some reason, delivered a skullcrushing finale to Paul. Is Mix now a babyface? I don’t know, but I’m sure winning Mysterios would have been more fun – and Miz could still have turned against Paul. Still one of the better celebrity outings (not as great as last year’s Bad Bunny, but still pretty good).
