Brock Lesnar (w) Paul Heyman vs Randy Orton

They get it going, as the crowd is buzzing. Lesnar starts off with brutal shoulder tackles into the turnbuckle but Orton fights back with elbows to the head and goes for a quick RKO that Lesnar brushes off.

Welcome to Suplex City Randy Orton. That's 5 German Suplexes back to back. The commentary teams seemed to have merged for this match, with all the commentators active.

The crowd alternates between chants of 'Suplex City' and 'RKO'. That's suplex no.6.

They take the fight outside, as Lesnar hip tosses Randy Orton through the announcer's table. Mauro Ranallo is making this match seem so much more grandiose than what it is.

Bottom line, Lesnar sets up Orton on another Announcer's table but RKO Outta Nowhere! Randy Orton nails Lesnar with an RKO after being put through a table, and absorbing 7 German Suplexes.

They stumble back into the ring, as Randy Orton catches Lesnar coming in with a DDT off the ropes! Just like that, Randy Orton nails another RKO! Cover 1-2-Kick out! Brock Lesnar kicks out of the RKO.

Orton sets him up for the punt kick, but Brock counters with an F-5! Pin! 1-2-Near Fall! Orton just kicks out in time. Lesnar doesn't relent though, as he mauls Randy Orton with vicious elbows!

Orton starts bleeding profusely as the doctors rush in to aid him. But Lesnar is at it again. He's snapped here as he goes after Orton again and again. Heyman gets in the ear of the referee, who tells Jojo to make the announcement that Lesnar wins by TKO.

But Lesnar is unhinged here, as he goes after Orton again, nailing him with elbows repeatedly. Shane McMahon comes out to make the save but eats an F-5 for his trouble.

Brock Lesnar leaves the ring, with Heyman at his side, having decimated Orton , and an intervening Shane McMahon, in the ring lying.

SummerSlam goes off air. Wow.

Result: Brock Lesnar Defeats Randy Orton via TKO


US Title Match - Roman Reigns vs Rusev(c) with Lana

Lana is out and makes a highly corny introduction for Rusev, as the Bulgarian Brute comes out to 'defend the honour' of his Russian bride. Go figure the politics out, my friends.

Roman Reigns is out next, and wait...does that sound like booing? I'm shocked :p

Reigns has barely set a foot into the ring as Rusev rushes him and takes the fight outside, sending him into one steel steps after another. Rusev looks to pound Reigns into pulp as the crowd eggs him on with chants of 'Rusev Machka!' 

Who would have thought?

Reigns turns the tide though, by sending Rusev into the timekeeper's area and hits him with the Superman punch. He then follows up by pounding on the Bulgarian Brute, as officials are out in force to stop this brawl.

By the way, the match hasn't even officially started yet.

Reigns has a steel chair in hand and makes use of it by hitting Rusev flush in the back, before pounding on him again. The officials look to create separation between them, as Rusev is left clutching his ribs and in pain.

Roman, meanwhile, is escorted to the back. This match never got going. It can't possibly end like this, as the crowd pipe up with a 'We want Slater!' chant. 

Jojo makes it official by announcing that Rusev cannot compete tonight as advised by the doctor. But wait, Roman Reigns is out again as he harpoons Rusev onto the hard, hard floor with a spear from hell.

If Rusev's ribs were hurt before this, that Spear should have shattered them. Roman looks back to admire his handiwork, as Rusev is left lying in a heap, doctors and referees surrounding him.

Heel turn perhaps?

Result: No contest as Rusev is laid out by Roman Reigns and declared unable to compete. Rusev retains his US Championship


WWE Universal Title Match - Seth Rollins vs Finn Balor

Seth Rollins comes in and we await the Demon King. Oh what an entrance Balor has. This always gives me goosebumps. Balor is such a bonafide Superstar.

Will the Demon King overcome The Man? Or will Seth Rollins, like always, find a way to prevail? The question will be answered in moments.

The brand new WWE Universal Championship is on display at ringside as Balor comes out at 100 Mph, taking the attack to Rollins right from the onset. Rollins fights back with a suplex outside the ring, before launching him into the timekeeper's area.

Balor doesn't stay down for too long as he comes out flying, literally, from the timekeeper's area. They take it back into the ring, as Balor looks to be working on Rollins' legs, specifically targeting them.

Rollins reverses the tide though, with a powerbomb onto the barricade on the outside, as he looks to go to work on Balor, who is propped up against the bottom turnbuckle in the corner.

Nice backbreaker by Rollins, as he looks to hold the Demon King down with a chin-lock. Balor attempts to reverse the lock, but is planted onto the turnbuckle by Rollins.

Rollins goes to work on him with a snapmare out of the turnbuckle, before attacking his back with a stiff kick. Balor still can't seem to fight out of this spate of control from Rollins, as the former WWE Champion tries to wear him down further.

Balor tries to fight out by elbowing his knees, but Rollins asserts himself again with an incredible frogsplash across almost half the ring's length, before attempting to pin him. 1-2-kick out! Balor stays in it.

And just like that, out of nowhere, Balor plants Rollins with a DDT that Seth sells like a champ. Is this the opening that Balor needs? Finn picks up the pace as he runs the ropes and takes Seth down with forearms and a cross body, before nailing him with a knee to the face.

Balor seems to have caught his second wind here as he sets up Rollins for a running attack, but we won't find out which one as Rollins intercepts him with a flying boot. Both men down, as the crowd breaks out into applause or these two fantastic performers.

Balor is up quicker and hits the 1916 on Rollins, 1-2-near fall! Seth Rollins however, snaps on a triangle choke as Balor desperately tries to squirm out towards the rope. Michael Cole announces now that it is a no disqualification match.

Rollins manages to get Balor back into the ring and hits him with the turnbuckle powerbomb, but Balor kicks out at 2 in the pin attempt that ensues. Rollins then talks some trash and nails an inside cradle small package driver that gets another near count.

Seth heads up to the top rope next, but is met by a kick from Balor, who wrests back the initiative with a a knee to the head from the top rope turnbuckle. But before he can capitalise, Rollins hits the pedigree on him. 1-2-Near Fall! Finn Balor kicks out of the Pedigree!

Balor then follows up with 2 double kicks to the chest to Rollins, and sets him up for the Coup de Grace! Balor nails the Coup de Grace from the top rope! Cover!

1-2-3! Finn Balor beats Seth Rollins to win the WWE Universal Championship!

I can't believe this. This is truly the new era ladies and gentlemen. Finn Balor is the face of Monday Night Raw.

Results: Finn Balor defeats Seth Rollins to win the WWE Universal Championship


Naomi, Carmella and Becky Lynch vs Natalya, Alexa Bliss and Nikki Bella

After WWE's epic troll on the WWE Universe of an Eva Marie appearance, Nikki Bella returns as Bliss and Natalya's partner. The match kicks off with Natalya and Naomi in the ring.

Naomi tags Carmella in, who excutes a head scissors on Natalya. Natalya takes control of the match and tags Nikki. Bella with a snap suplex on Carmella, post which the former Divas Champion wears her down. Bella showing off with some push ups, post which she tags Bliss in. Alexa continues the dominance with an acrobatic takedown. Quick tags being made as Natalya gets tagged in.

She continues to wear Carmella down with an abdominal stretch, but Carmella fights out of it and tags in Becky Lynch. Becky Irish whips Bliss, Natalya and Bella to the corner and follows it up with a springboard sidekick to each one of them.

Becky is on a roll here, and she continues with an enziguri on Nikki Bella. Bella, though gets one up on Becky and shifts the momentum back in favour of the heels. Becky slithers to her corner for the tag to Naomi, who comes in and does a ridiculous kick sequence.

After all the chaos that ensued in the ring, with Carmella taking out both Natalya and Bliss with a missile drop kick, Nikki catches Carmella off guard. She completes the formality by connecting with the facebuster on Carmella. 1-2-3! Nikki picks up the win for her team.

In spite of being part of the heels, Nikki got a babyface reaction and got a decent pop from the Brooklyn crowd.

Natalya, Alexa Bliss and Nikki Bella beats Naomi, Carmella and Becky Lynch 


WWE Championship Match: Dean Ambrose(c) vs Dolph Ziggler

Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan are out, as Dean Ambrose looks to defend his WWE Championship against Dolph Ziggler. This is a Ziggler that is edgier and closer to breaking point. I quite like this version of him.

Dean Ambrose it out next, to a raucous reception.

The introductions are made and the bell is rung as they lock up. Ambrose slaps Ziggler first up as Dolph retorts with one of his own, before attempting a couple of roll-ups that aren't successful.

The fight spills on outside as Ziggler delivers a swinging neckbreaker to Ambrose. He sends the Champion back into the ring, but is met with an attempted Dirty Deeds. Ziggler manages to avert it but that gives Dean the opening he requires.

Ambrose sets Ziggler up on the top turnbuckle and teases a Dirty Deeds, but Ziggler fights out. However that is short lived as well,  as Ambrose lands a suplex anyway.

Ambrose follows up with a single leg crab which is reversed by Ziggler into an unsuccessful pin attempt. Ambrose gets back up to his feet and lands a snap suplex, before going to the top rope.

Ziggler catches Ambrose's attempted high risk move with a beautiful dropkick,  but Ambrose stifles him from gaining further momentum with a front faceplant.

He teases Shawn Michaels' Superkick set-up before going for a Dirty Deeds, but Ziggler fights out of it and sends him outside the ring. As Ambrose comes back in, he's intercepted with a flying DDT.

Ziggler sends Ambrose shoulder first into the ring post, before hitting the Fameasser, but the Champion kicks out in 2! He looks to inject some pace into proceedings and tries to bounce off the ropes but Ambrose meets him half way as both men go down together.

They both get back to their feet, as Ambrose reverses Ziggler's attempted Irish Whip and lands a clothesline followed by a running bulldog. As Ziggler gets back to his feet, he eats a flying elbow from Ambrose, coming off the top turn buckle.

Ambrose mocks Ziggler again but the fight spills on outside, where the challenger Superkicks the hell outta Ambrose. He sends him into the ring, 1-2-kickout!

Ziggler sets him up for another Superkick, but Ambrose counters to try to hit a Dirty Deeds, which Ziggler counters into a Zig Zag. 1-2-Near Fall! Ambrose kicks out again!

Dolph has had enough it would seem, as he looks to choke out Ambrose using a sleeper. But the Champion fights out and nails a wicked clothesline off the ropes to put an end to Ziggler's momentum.

Ambrose goes up to the top turnbuckle, but Ziggler 'scrambles his eggs' before unsuccessfully attempting a Superplex. Ambrose fights out of it before nailing a Dirty Deeds to Ziggler. 1-2-3!

Dean Ambrose retains the WWE Championship!

Results: Dean Ambrose defeats Dolph Ziggler via pinfall to retain the WWE Championship


Jon Stewart is out next, and he gets booed. Until he reveals that he is standing in for Big E today, and shows himself wearing a New Day t-shirt. He does the introduction that Big E usually does, as Xavier Woods and Kofi Kingston make their way out

Anderson locks up with Kofi, and gets him in a headlock before being felled by a flying elbow when he was running the ropes. Anderson recovers pretty quickly though but is met with a double stomp to his chest. 

Kofi tags in Woods and they double team Anderson with kicks to his back. Anderson manages to tag in Gallows somehow, and the New Day take the fight to him as well, sending him to the mat against the turnbuckle and taking turns in stomping him.

Kofi looks to continue the assault but Gallows turns the tide and tags in Anderson, who twists Kofi's arm using the ropes before dishing out punishment to him in their corner. Tag to Gallows who looks for a big splash off the ropes, only for Kofi to get out of the way in time before tagging in Xavier Woods, as Anderson comes in too.

Woods unloads on Anderson before nailing him with a flying elbow. Wow , impressive by Woods. Almost like a Shane McMahon coast-to-coast. Anderson and Gallows regroup though before hitting Kofi with a Magic Killer.

Just as they go for a pin, Jon Stewart comes in and distracts them. Xavier Woods tries to hit Anderson from the back but is met with a huge spinebuster. With both Xavier and Kofi out cold, Jon Stewart is fair game here.

Anderson and Gallows try to do to him what they did to Big E...but wait! Big E returns! Big E returns! He takes out Anderson with a clothesline before wasting Gallows outside the ring with a belly to belly suplex!

It is a disqualification, but the New Day retain their titles! Who cares right? Especially when Big E is in the middle of the ring and dancing again! :p

Results: The Club defeats New Day via Disqualification


John Cena vs AJ Styles

This should be a great match. Cena generally puts on great matches with superior workers, and that is exactly what AJ Styles is. Styles is easily one of the best pro-wrestlers in the world today, and Cena should put on a classic with him. Fingers crossed.

AJ comes out to a pretty solid reaction. Will Cena get booed or will it be a split reaction like usual?

Its the boos. And quite resounding at that. 'John Cena Sucks!' rings out in the arena as the Face that Runs the Place makes his way out. What an electric atmosphere as the music dies down though.

Duelling chants of 'AJ Styles' , 'Let's go Cena' emanate wildly in the Barclay's Arena, as they lock up. Mauro Ranallo is commentary gold. Michael Cole, please take notes.

Cena opens with a headlock, and is sent into the ropes only to be met with a beautiful dropkick by Styles. Styles showboats as the crowd pops, but Cena comes back with an old fashioned right hand.

He looks to assert early control as he tries to land an AA off the ring apron, only for AJ to counter and send Cena back first into the hardest part of the ring. Cena rolls back into the ring, with Styles stalking him.

Styles tries to run at Cena who back body drops him with unbelievable hang time! Air Jordan people! What strength by Cena as he takes further control of this epic encounter with a snap suplex.

Styles fights back with a flurry of strikes before hitting Cena with a forearm. That doesn't keep Cena down too long as he retorts with shoulder blocks into the Five Knuckle Shuffle!

Cena sets him up for the AA, which is reversed into the Pelle kick from Styles. Styles Clash! Styles Clash! 1-2-Kickout! John Cena kicks out of the Styles Clash!

They both get back onto the feet, and Cena nails Styles with an AA. 1-2-Kickout! Would you believe it? Styles kicks out of the AA! Wow. Both men kicked out of the other's finisher as the crowd sings 'this is awesome!' with gusto.

They take it to the corner as AJ Styles reverses an AA off the turnbuckle into a torture rack, which sets up a spinning plant. The momentum changes again as Cena hits him with what looks like a pop-up RKO.

Styles refuses to stay down for the 3 count as he hits Cena with a modified AA, which Cena kicks out of. Another near fall as Styles goes for a springboard 450, but nobody home! Cena rolls him up for a 2 and three quarter count!

Styles retorts with a rolling german suplex followed by a facebuster - another near fall! Wow! How many near falls are there in this match? Neither man is willing to yield.

Styles looks to go for another spring board which Cena counters into an STF, which Styles reverses into a crossface submission attempt of his own. Cena gets up with Styles still on his back but AJ rolls through into the calf crusher!

Cena looks to inch his way to the ropes but AJ strafes him into the middle of the ring! Cena reverses into the STF! It's in the middle of the ring! AJ rolls-up Cena, but he kicks out at 2 before getting back to his feet.

He's met with an Enzuigiri by styles and returns fire with a tornado DDT of his own. What a to-and-fro match this is. And the crowd is into is in a major way as duelling chants of 'AJ Styles - Let's go Cena' take over.

Cena goes to the top rope and hits a leg drop on the back of AJ's neck, leading to another near fall! Cena sets AJ up on the top rope turnbuckle before Styles reverses his attempt with a Hurricarana and follows it up with a Phenomenal Forearm. 1-2-Near Fall! Cena kicks out Again!

Styles looks to kick the legs from underneath Cena, who turns him inside out with a powerful clothesline. Cena has Styles on a fireman's carry and goes for the AA from the top-rope!


Cena looks crestfallen as the crowd erupts into Yes! chants. Cena looking long and hard at AJ Styles. Wondering what it would take to put him away. He goes for an AA which is reversed into a Styles Clash!

Styles nails the Phenomenal Forearm and pins Cena. 1-2-3! AJ Styles Beats John Cena Clean!


Result: AJ Styles beats John Cena via pinfall


WWE Intercontinental Championship Match - Apollo Crews vs The Miz (c) with Maryse

Miz bullrushes Crews and looks to kick him in the face, which is reversed by Crews using a roll-up. 1-2-kickout! Miz recovers quickly and plants Crews with a DDT.

Crews looks to retort with a high flying spot, but The Miz sends him reeling with a counter. But Crews isn't easily deterred as he lands a quick body splash onto the turnbuckle, following it up with an Enzuigiri.

Miz tries to reverse the tide of momentum that Crews is on, but to no avail as the superior athleticism and strength of Crews allows him to land a beautiful overhead belly-to-belly followed by a standing moonsault!

How can a man so jacked be so athletic? It belies logic. Crews is just something else, and the Miz is feeling it too, as he looks to hightail. He wants no part of this match. Maryse gets involved, and Miz uses the intervention to his advantage as he hits Apollo Crews with the Skull Crushing Finale!

1-2-3! The Miz retains! Barely, but he still managed to weasel his way to the victory. I have to say, Miz is a great heel champion, as JBL croons about how lucky we are to have Miz and Maryse  - The A Listers - on SmackDown live!

Result: The Miz beats Apollo Crews via pinfall to retain his Intercontinental Championship


A backstage segment airs where Anderson and Gallows meet up with AJ Styles and looks who's here! It's Finn Balor! OMG?! Is this a club reunion? AJ , Anderson and Gallows throw up the 'Too Sweet' sign, but Balor just smiles and walks away. 

WWE is such a tease. -.-


WWE Women's Championship Match - Charlotte vs Sasha Banks (c)

WWE Women's Championship match is next. Charlotte is out next, and she's draped in a robe that is highly reminiscent of her father's. Chip off the old block much?

The Boss, Sasha Banks walks out, Women's Championship Belt held aloft proudly! This should be a great match. These women seem to have truly revolutionized how 'Divas' are being viewed.

'Let's go Sasha' chants ring out as both women lock up in the middle. Sasha slaps Charlotte before trying to lock in the Bank Statement quite early, which leaves the challenger squirming her way out of the ring in retreat.

They get it on again, when Sasha lands a nasty slap to the chest, before hitting an athletic looking arm drag to the challenger. She tries to execute a high risk move, when Charlotte catches her mid way and drops her neck first on the ropes through to the mat.

What a dangerous spot that is! Sasha screams out in pain as Charlotte takes advantage and goes to work on her compromised back.

Sasha fights back with an elbow to the face before kneeing Charlotte in the face, and following up the string of strikes with a dropkick. She backs Charlotte onto the turnbuckle, but the challenger intercepts her running in with a brutal backbreaker on the knee.

Momentum shift again as Charlotte punishes Sasha's back repeatedly with stiff kicks, and looks for a superplex which is reversed by Sasha. They grapple on the mat before Charlotte regains standing ground and tries to knot up Sasha in a Figure 8.

Sasha fights out but Charlotte sends her to the opposite turnbuckle, and goes for an audacious Razor's Edge off the second rope which is reversed brilliantly by Sasha into a Hurricarana from the top rope. Wow.

Both women are down as the referee starts the 10 count. Eventually they both make it to their feet, exchanging blows as the crowd goes 'Boo' for Charlotte's strikes and 'Yay' for Sasha!

Sasha gets her second wind, it looks like, as she slaps Charlotte into the turnbuckle and lands a devastating double knee to her back. Pin! 1-2-Kickout!

Charlotte looks to have engineered enough separation as she sends an oncoming Sasha into the ropes after getting out of the way just in time, but Sasha doesn't relent, following up with a double knee from the top rope to the outside, onto Charlotte!

The crowd goes 'Holy Sh*t!" and quite rightly!

They bring it back into the ring, and Charlotte goes for the Natural Selection as Sasha reverses into the Bank Statement! Charlotte manages to squirm out of it after making it look like she was locked in good. That took a lot out of Sasha!

Charlotte realizes it and nails Natural Selection. 1-2-Near Fall! Sasha kicks out just in time. Charlotte slaps around Sasha in frustration, but the Boss isn't quite done yet as she suckers in the challenger and locks in the Bank Statement. This time in the middle of the ring!

Will she tap? Oh no! Charlotte rolls with the lock and holds Sasha underneath her in a roll-up attempt of sorts! 1-2-3! We have a new Women's Champion! I repeat. We have a new Women's Champion!

Charlotte beats Sasha Banks for the WWE Women's Championship!

Result: Charlotte beats Sasha Banks via pinfall to become the new WWE Women's Champion
