Recap

SummerSlam is in the books and the second biggest night of the year certainly did not disappoint. The WWE Universe has had one hell of a weekend in Brooklyn and the riot act continued for Monday Night Raw and all the fallout from last night’s event.

Here’s how it all went down:

The show opens with Triple H and Seth Rollins at WWE Headquarters where The Game informs the WWE World Heavyweight and United States Champion that the statue made in his likeness will be erected later in the night.

Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman are out in the ring to address The Undertaker situation. Heyman discusses the controversial finish between Lesnar and ‘Taker and states that Lesnar wants to fight The Undertaker one more time … in Brooklyn. This brings out Bo Dallas (for some reason) who spews his “inspiration” at Lesnar before catching a beating from The Beast.

The New Day vs. Lucha Dragons

Quick paced match which saw some strong tag team action despite the short length … The New Day picks up the victory.

Match Winners: The New Day

Match Rating: 6/10

Post-Match: The Dudley Boyz are back and the crowd loses their mind. Bubba Ray and D-Von take out The New Day. (Sweet)

Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose vs. Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper

Hard-hitting affair between these long-time rivals. The match would conclude when the newest member of The Wyatt Family (a monster of a man) appeared to take our Reigns and Ambrose.

Match Winners: Roman Reigns and Deans Ambrose vis DQ

Match Rating: 6/10

-Miz TV-

Paige, Charlotte, and Becky Lynch are out to discuss their victory at SummerSlam. The Miz calls into question Team P.C.B. and the fact that there must be some competition between the trio which the girls deny. Team Bella interrupts the interview and the girls get into a verbal altercation before the physicality breaks out.

Team P.C.B. vs. Team Bella

The women of wrestling were at it again as another strong match went down between the six Divas. Alicia Fox scores the pinfall on Paige.

Match Winners: Team Bella

Match Rating: 7/10

King Barrett and Stardust were set to team together until Stardust attacked the King; leading to Neville coming out to take out Stardust.

Jon Stewart is out to explain his actions at SummerSlam; stating that he could not allow John Cena to tie Ric Flair for all time world championship victories. In turn, this statement brings out Ric Flair himself who admits that he was “pulling for John Cena.” Out next: John Cena and his usual Cena-style banter. Stewart apologizes to Cena but catches and AA for his troubles.

Dolph Ziggler, Cesaro, Randy Orton, and Ryback vs. Kevin Owens, Big Show, Sheamus, and Rusev

Aside from Big Show, the competitors in this match were all solid throughout with Randy Orton picking up the victory with an RKO on Sheamus.

Match Winners: Dolph Ziggler, Cesaro, Randy Orton, and Ryback

Match Rating: 5/10

Post-Match: Kevin Owens and Rusev take out their frustrations on Big Show before the four winners return to the ring and administer some of their own physical abuse on Show.

Bray Wyatt along with his family cuts a promo on Roman Reigns and introduces “Abigail’s Black Sheep.”

Backstage: Triple H and Stephanie confront John Cena. Stephanie has the fifteen-time champ removed from the building.

Triple H and Stephanie come out to the ring for the immortalization of Seth Rollins. Stephanie announces that it is Vince McMahon’s seventieth birthday and leads the crowd in a “happy birthday” sing-a-long. Triple H moves on to the ceremony and the praising of the current WWE World Heavyweight Champion before bringing out Seth Rollins for his grand moment. Rollins states that he is now a legend before acting as though he is choked up and on the brink of crying. However, the unveiling of the Rollins statue is actually Sting who takes out Rollins and holds the WWE World Heavyweight Championship.

Going Forward

What comes next for Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker? There needs to be some sort of payoff and epic conclusion to this rivalry. Having ‘Taker come out on top doesn’t seem logical as Lesnar should win at all costs in WWE. Legitimize his legacy.

The Dudley Boyz are back to tear off the face of the current tag team division and rebrand with their classic style of rough recklessness. This is a great situation for tag team wrestling in WWE.

The Divas remain red hot and it should be interesting to see moving forward who will be the women to dethrone Nikki Bella as the Queen of WWE. Sasha Banks, Charlotte, or Becky Lynch would all make a great Divas Champion.

John Cena is bound to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at some point in the near future – no matter how many people disagree and complain about the Ric Flair record. Seth Rollins has done a fine job as the top guy in WWE and hopefully he will not get lost in the mix when Cena is finally placed back atop the mountain.

Sting in the main even picture for a short while? Sure.
