The event which happened  WrestleMania 35 at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey was a historic and emotional one.

It’s so emotional. Like, you work so hard to get here and sometimes you work as hard as you can and things aren’t going your way, you know? And you don’t know if the hard work is going to pay off. It’s paying off right now. It just feels surreal. It feels like a legitimate dream. ... I feel like I’m in a dream, and I don’t want to wake up,” Kofi said after the bout.
