There has been no shortage of action from the superstars of SmackDown and Raw so far in 2022. The pay-per-views in particular have featured some stellar wrestling and also featured the return of some great superstars this year. Many matches were delivered across both nights of WrestleMania and every event since that has had at least one or two title fights that just made the PPV more interesting than they already were. With that being said, let’s take a look at five of the best moments in WWE so far this year.

5. Return of Stone Cold Steve Austin

The Texas Rattlesnake whose last WWE match was against Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson at WrestleMania in 2003, released a teaser video suggesting his return to WWE. With the iconic sound of shattering glass, Stone Cold made his return to the WWE in front of a packed arena in Texas at WrestleMania 38. The 57-year-old hall of famer accepted a challenge to confront Kevin Owens and for about 20 minutes, Austin wrestled against Kevin Owens in what appeared to be an official match. Every fan out there took a trip down the memory lane with the crowd chanting “You still got it!” multiple times before Austin stunned Owens with his iconic finishing move – The Stunner.

4. Lesnar wins the Royal Rumble match

In the 2022 Royal Rumble PPV, Brock Lesnar’s reign as the WWE Champions came to an abrupt end when Roman Reigns nailed him with a Spear while the referee was knocked out. Paul Heyman, Lesnar’s former manager then betrayed him and handed Reigns the WWE Championship allowing The Tribal Chief to smack him across the face and allow Lashley to make the cover. Lesnar then turned his fortune around as he entered the 2022 Men’s Royal Rumble match as the surprise #30 and won the match with ease, eliminating Randy Orton, Bad Bunny, Shane McMahon, Riddle and Drew McIntyre to win his second 30-man Royal Rumble match.

Cody Rhodes returned to WWE with a torn pectoral muscle to take on Seth Rollins in a Money In The Bank ladder match. Despite the pain he was going through due to the injury, Rhodes refused to quit the fight. Soon, the two abused each other with a bull rope and cowbell while both were tied in. Rollins then tossed Rhodes through the table with a powerbomb and somehome Rhodes managed to kick out on his injured side. This drew the fans to chant “This is Awesome”. Rollins then followed the move with a Curb Stomp and a Cross Rhodes only for Rhodes to return the fire with the same move. Rhodes then landed two consecutive Cross Rhodes and doomed Rollins with the sledgehammer to win the match.

In the main event of WrestleMania 38, the then WWE Champion Brock Lesnar took on the Universal Champion Roman Reigns in a trilogy fight with this one being the most important as it was a title unification bout. In the match, both the fighters shared some heavy blows but in the end it was Brock Lesnar who fell to the Tribal Chief, who unified the WWE and Universal Championship titles at WrestleMania 38. The turning point of the match was when the official got caught in the crossfire that allowed Reigns to hit a low blow before striking him down with the championship belt that was handed by Paul Heyman. Despite this, Lesnar was still in it but ultimately it was a spear by Roman Reigns that took Lesnar down, unifying the WWE and Universal titles.
