The Biggest Party of the Summer is now behind us as SummerSlam 2019 has been successfully concluded. The show itself was very good as there were some great matches at the event.
The two highlights of the show were Bray Wyatt’s match against Finn Balor and the main event match between Brock Lesnar and Seth Rollins. Wyatt completely illuminated the arena with his darkness as his Fiend persona’s in-ring debut left the fans completely satisfied.
The perfect platform for the main event was set by Wyatt, and Rollins and Lesnar followed it up with a classic of their own. Lesnar has been somewhat more interested in working ever since Heyman took over RAW, and it showed in his bout against Rollins.
The Beast not only put Rollins over, but sold the latter’s moves properly. The storytelling behind the match was so excellent that the crowd, who weren’t so receptive of Rollins at the beginning of the match, cheered him through the roof when the referee counted three.
So, Rollins is now the WWE Universal Champion once again – and here are 3 reasons why that is a great move, and 2 reasons why it isn’t…
#3 Great move: Full-time champion again
Let’s get the obvious one out of the way. Having the Universal Title with Brock Lesnar means that it won’t be appearing on RAW every week – let alone defending it.
The WWE Universe has always been critical of the company putting the prestigious title on the shoulders of Brock Lesnar due to his part-time schedule, and when Rollins won the title off Lesnar at WrestleMania, they breathed a sigh of relief.
And even though we basically got a WrestleMania rematch at SummerSlam, it won’t be wrong to assume that majority of the fans are happy that the title is now in the hands of a full-time performer.
