Welcome to my list of the Summerslam results. I always find it annoying to have to go looking for the results so I put them all in one place.
So here we go:
During the pre-show the Miz and the Miztourage Def. Jason Jordan and The Hardy’s.
In the second pre-show match Neville Def. Tozawa to become the Cruiserweight Champ.
And in the final pre-show match The Usos Def. The New Day to regain the Smackdown Tag Titles.
Starting off the main show John Cena picks up the win against Baron Corbin.
The second match of the match has Natalya Def. Naomi to become the Smackdown Women’s champ.
In the third match of the night Big Cass Def. Big Show
In a very disappointing fourth match Randy Orton Def. Rusev.
In the fifth match and second Women’s title match Sasha Banks Def. Alexia Bliss to become the Raw Women’s Champ.
In the sixth night of the night The Demon King Def. Bray Wyatt.
In the seventh match of the night Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose become the new Raw Champs after they Def. Sheamus and Cesaro.
In the eight match of the night AJ Styles Def. Kevin Owens to retain the US Championship.
In the ninth Match of the night we have Shinsuke Nakamura VS Jinder Mahal in which Jinder Mahal Def. Nakamura to retain his championship.
Finally in the final match of the night the Fatal 4 Way we have Brock Lesner Def. Roman Reigns, Samoa Joe, and Braun Strowman in an incredible match!!
As you may have heard by now Seth Rollins was injured at a house show. He injured his ACL, MCL and medial meniscus. It’s a terrible injury and he may be out for 6-9 months. Now while this is disapointing this may turn out to be a blessing in disguise for Rollins as well as the WWE Title picture.
Seth Rollins title reign has been disapointing to say the least. With terrible storylines and questionable losses the popularity of Rollins has been waning and the terrible feud with Kane did not help. The best option right now maybe for him to have some time off and give fans a chance to miss him. Rollins should take the time to refresh his character. Maybe a new gimmick including a new finisher (the Pedigree is terrible for him), a new look and just some freshness to his character could do wonders. He probably will miss Mania but can come back for another big PPV like Sumerslam and generate a huge buzz.
Another positive would be that with Rollins gone there is room for someone else to get a big push. Now may be the best time to put the title on Reigns. Fans hatred of Reigns is no way near as nuclear as it was at Mania last year. With Cena gone as well this may be the best time to build characters like Dean Ambrose, Ziggler or Cesaro. Also if things aren’t doing good you always have Sheamus in the background with the Money in the Bank Briefcase.
Finally, with Rollins being injured it completely changes what the plans for this years Wrestlemania were going to be. Maybe we could get a Daniel Bryan vs Roman Reigns match or a Cesaro vs Ambrose. This is WWE creative’s chance to fix the misses they had this year and make Raw and Smackdown more compelling. Take time to build your future stars,make more consistent characters and give guys like New Day, Kevin Owens and Bray Wyatt time to show there full potential. While it is always sucks to see a superstar get injuried the WWE must be always be prepared to to have someone step up and take there place. This is especially so for the World Champ. I hope that the next champ gets a better opportunity to shine than Rollins did.
John Cena did what many thought couldn’t be done. He took the US title, a title that was irrelevant and brought it to the forefront. With incredible matches vs the likes of Neville, Ziggler and even the World Champ, the US title has shined each time. With Hell in a Cell just hours away and John Cena facing a mystery opponent, who would be the best options for him to face.
The Swiss Superman would be a excellent choice to face Cena at Hell in a Cell due to the excellent in ring chemistry they have together. The last time they faced each other for the title is considered by many an instant classic. While he hasn’t been getting the push he deserves this could be the opportunity to make things right and let him proves that he deserves to be in the main event scene. There would certainly be a lot of competition for him to go up against. Cesaro has all the right tools to keep the US title open challenge going and also keep fans invested in matches.
New day rocks! New day rocks! The rise of the New Day has been one of the high spots of this year thus far. So why not reward there enforcer with some championship gold. The New Day have been on a tear lately defeating the Dudleys and Cena so it would make sense for Big E not only to get a title shot but to defeat Cena in shocking fashion. This would be a good way to solidify Big E as a main eventer and keep the New Day as a force to be reckoned with.
Samoa Joe! What’s a better way of introducing Joe to the roster than having him come out and slaughter John Cena. It would be an amazing moment seeing Joe and Cena in the same ring. When TNA was in its prime this was the match many fans wanted to see. Fans of Joe would love this and casual fans would get to see something new. Joe could easily become a fan favorite and quickly become one of the faces of the company if pushed correctly.
This is the one that most fans (including myself) want. The return of Daniel Bryan would undoubtedly not only steal the show but alone would make the PPV worth a buy. With Cena being gone for a undisclosed period of time who better than Daniel Bryan. Former champ and current fan favorite since his departure fans has left a hole in fans hearts. Bringing him back could be the shot in the arm the WWE needs.
Stephen Amell… because why not! Lol
