Austin Theory (C) vs John Cena for the United States Championship:

Cena’s first Wrestlemania was the opening match for U.S title and now nineteen years later his possible last wrestle mania he opens for the U.S. title. The match began with Cena toying with Theory until Theory bite Cena’s ear and took advantage. The self proclaimed “Now” was able to secure two early near falls with a running blockbuster and rolling dropkick. Theory got overconfident though and went for the kick again only to be caught by Cena into an STF. Theory would then once again bite his hand to escape and retake control of the match. After a few minutes of Austin Theory control, Cena comes back with his classic moves with two shoulder tackles, slam, and five knuckle shuffle. When going for the Attitude Adjustment he knocked into the ref taking him down. Cena locked in the STF and Theory tapped but the ref was still down. Theory was aware of this and hit Cena with a low blow than the A-Town Down for the win. A disappointing ending for the fans in the opener.

Winner: And Still United States Champion Austin Theory
