Wrestlemania 40 took place at the Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania over two nights and lived up to the catchphrase that it was the biggest WWE premium live event of all time. In an update from WWFOldSchool, a number of interesting stats and records have been shared from the first night of the PLE as given below,

– R-Truth’s losing streak was over at Wrestlemania 40. His RAW Tag Team Championship win with The Miz marked his first-ever victory at WrestleMania.

– Asuka is still dealing with his WrestleMania losing streak as she still has 0 victories at the event. Last night, she lost in a six-woman tag team match with Kairi Sane and Dakota Kai against the team of Jade Cargill, Bianca Belair, and Naomi.

– With this win at Wrestlemania 40, Naomi has now tied with Trish Stratus, Charlotte Flair, and Bianca Belair for the most wins for a woman at WrestleMania with the number being 4.

– Gunther’s record-setting longest Intercontinental Championship reign ended at 666 days at the hands of Sami Zayn at Wrestlemania 40 Saturday.

Original plan for The Rock got scrapped at Wrestlemania 40

– The Rock, despite being a part-timer, now possesses the record for being in the second-longest match in WrestleMania history. The Rock & Roman Reigns vs. Cody Rhodes & Seth Rollins lasted for 44 minutes & 35 seconds and it became the second-longest one in the history of the PLE. The longest match in WrestleMania history is Bret Hart vs. Shawn Michaels in an Iron Man Match at WrestleMania 12, which lasted 1 hour, 1 minute & 56 seconds.

– The original plan as planned last year for WrestleMania 40 was The Rock vs. Roman Reigns for the main event spot. But, Rock realized they had the opportunity to listen to the fans. They could’ve ignored the fan reaction and still booked Rock vs. Reigns, but that didn’t happen. It was The Rock who eventually decided to go with something WWE has been building for the past 2 years, and that’s to allow Cody Rhodes to finish his story.

– Bianca Belair still remains undefeated at WrestleMania, with an astounding 4-0 record.
