In the opening match of the Wrestlemania kickoff show, Antonio Cesaro and Tyson Kidd managed to successfully retain the tag team championship in a match that also featured Big E Langston, Kofi Kingston, Diego, Fernando, Jimmy Uso and Jey Uso. Jimmy was written out of the match almost immediately because he is injured in real life. After several high spots, the match ended when Cesaro pinned Langston.
