WrestleMania 36 results: Elias pins King Corbin

WrestleMania’s Twitter

In case you didn’t watch the WrestleMania 36 Night One Kickoff, this happened.

Hey, if I had to sit through it, so do you.

The goal, of course, is to make you hate King Corbin. A plan which continued when he entered the Performance Center for his match. He called for a replay of his attack on Elias, and then demanded the referee declare him a winner by forfeit due to the Drifter be unable to perform.

But Elias could, and did. He opened by smashing his guitar over the King before the bell.

Even with his taped up shoulder, it was all Elias at the start. The King finally dumped him over the top to get a breather, then sent him into the ring post shoulder-first to take control. What followed was the standard Corbin television match WWE fans have grown accustomed to over the past year-and-a-half.

The heel thought he had things won when he got. his feet on the ropes on a cover, but referee Jessika Carr caught him. While Corbin was arguing, Elias rolled him up, grabbed the tights, and that was that.

The build suggested ‘Mania host Rob Gronkowski might get involved, but neither Gronk or Mojo Rawley even showed their face here.
