The hottest SummerSlam in the history Mick Foley stepped out and walked away after hearing he was going to be Jon Stewart’s backup for a word with Brock Lesnar. Holy Moly! Welcome to Brooklyn, officially renamed for one night only, Suplex City.
Orton V Sheamus
No one can complain about what they’ve seen as Orton and Sheamus left it all In the center of the ring. Orton made sure to even leave a bit of the action outside as well. The viper managed to strike with his vicious RKO but Sheamus managed to roll away after a hard fought battle out of the ring. Randy later decided to go for his punt kick to miss and receive white noise. Shockingly, two boots to the face land flush to the chin of Randy as he loses to he Celtic Warrior.
Let’s hear it for New Day! Or is it New York? Either way Jay-Z isn’t endorsing their rendition of New York, though entertaining. You have to just give in, New Day Rocks. Los Matadores, the Lucha Dragons and the Primetime Players joins New Day in a Fatal 4-Way. And to start it off New Day almost took the titles by pinning each other. Could you imagine New Day and that new strategy! Kalisto never lets down the WWE Universe with his high flying agility, but met his match as Darren Young counters it all.
At the end of it all Titus destroyed everyone in the ring, not knowing he was no longer the legal man as Kofi tagged himself in, to prove to everyone, it’s a new day yet again. The arena blew the roof with New Day chants; all required was just a bit of positivity and a clap!
Rusev v Dolph
If you ever doubted him then you don’t have a clue. Possibly the hottest thing next to SummerSlam, Lana. Out of the business suits and into the DZ jean suit. But nothing mattered to the Bulgarian bruit. Rusev as always clobbers his way to a close victory, but this time has his hands full with the fastest show off in the game today, Dolph Ziggler. Rusev managed to lock his submission until Summer Rae received a slap that canceled the Accolade. As battle moved to the outside it ended there as well in a double count-out.
Cosmic Battle in Brooklyn
King Barrett and StarDust are Battling in Brooklyn against Neville and Stephen Amelle. Green Arrow steps into the ring and puts on a show that could earn this man a contract. Definitely more worthy that than a handful of Tough Enough competitors, who were in the crowd by the way. Stephen went above and beyond from top turnbuckle and assisting the man that gravity forgot in performing the red arrow for a victory.
Miz, Ryback & Big Show
So this match was hands down awesome ad that was indeed no thanks to the Miz! Kidding. He was okay as he attempted to in everyone after they performed their respectful finish. But in the end the Miz was the defined loser as he was pinned by Ryback after receiving a knockout punch by the Big Show.
How dare Paul call out Stewart and prefer David Letterman! But then again, how dare Stewart provoke a beast like The Beast.
Wyatt Family v Reigns and Ambrose
Wow. That’s the only word to describe this match and their chemistry. So much back and forth and team moves performed you really don’t know whether to follow the buzzards or believe in the two-thirds of the Shield. Incredible to say the least, it all ends with a spear that broke Bray in half.
Cena v Rollins
The champ is here, but which one? This was easily one of the hottest cards on the ticket next to Lesnar and Taker. And before we go into this match I just have to say that Seth’s new white suit was way better than the orange and green shirt worn by Cena. But respectively it’s all about the fact this match is title for title, United States and the World Heavyweight Championship. Looking at these two face to face you can only think of the old Punk /Cena.
I start with the fact that Rollins performed three dives to the ropes. This is one the biggest matches of his life and he knows it. And Cena has to fight back if he wants to win and match his championship wins with the Nature Boy, Ric Flair.
Springboard stunner from Cena, an arial assault from Rollins, Attitude Adjustment from Cena, Leg Dro from Cena; they left it all in the ring. If you didn’t see the awesomeness of the Rollins though with the super high frog splash and the, an AA from Rollins and the figure-four leg lock reversed between the both of them.
But as the Attitude Adjustment is nailed by Cena the ref inadvertently went down and Jon Stewart got in the middle of it all. A chair to the mid-section of Cena and a pedigree to follow by Rollins. Believe it or not, Seth is the United States and WWE World Heavyweight Champion. I guess now we know exactly who the new champ is.
Team Bella v Team B.A.D v Team PCB
In a match to prove female dominance in what’s being called the Diva Revolution we’ve seen a great deal of high-risk maneuvers from all the groups to only see an early end to team BAD as Tamina is pinned shortly after the match began.
The first I recall ever seeing in years, a double boot. But it was quite the ending as the Lass Kicker herself nailed Brie Bella with the pump handle to earn the win for PCB.
Fight Owens Fight v Swiss SuperMan
Kevin and Cesaro has been waiting to get at each other since the fight for the U.S. title challenges against Cena. Right at bat both athletes started with high velocity. Cesaro and Owens took each other to the limits they left heart and souls in the ring. In the end it was Kevin wanting it more, picking up the win after delivering a pop-up power bomb.
The Reaper v The Beast
This isn’t a match nor is it a war. This right here is far beyond earning a win. It began as two mad men wanting to destroy each other. But without hesitation Brock took Taker a few roundtrips to suplex city. It didn’t last long however as Taker made some incredible and vintage moves resurrect on Lesnar. And just when you thought it was all Taker, back to suplex city we went. And then from outside an F5 that destroyed the announce table.
Back inside Taker reveres The Beast to deliver a chokeslam and tombstone that didn’t finish it. But then Taker and Brock both did their iconic rise and laugh at each other. The legends continue to drive on until Taker calls for the Last Ride. With it not taking out Lesnar, Brock pulls two more F5’s .
Brock, ready to put an end to the match puts Taker in the kimura lock. The Undertaker indeed taps but the referee never sees it. Though the timekeeper did and ringed the bell, the ref reverses the decision as Taker goes for his desperate new finisher, the low blow. From there Brock was screwed yet again while as the Taker went for his submission, causing Lesnar to pass out, gaining the victory.
There will be more than hell to pay tomorrow night on Raw. Paul will not let this end and I agree. The beast conquered the dead man.
