This Summerslam had me more excited for it than Wrestlemania. There were so many great match ups and possible character changing outcomes that even after I made my predictions I doubted myself. There were some some heel turns by some unlikely people which resulted in some more . Let’s take a look and see what actually happened and it I did with my predictions.
Randy Orton vs. Sheamus – I was wrong. A decent match, but you could tell that both wrestlers were in “opening match mode” where they didn’t put in their all. Sheamus won and this would be the last time you saw him the rest of the pay per view.
The Primetime Players vs. Los Matadores vs. The Lucha Dragons vs. The New Day – I was wrong. I wanted The Primetime Players to win, but it seems that the WWE has different plans for The New Day and their story line. Let’s see if they get a rematch at Night of Champions.
Dolph Ziggler vs. Rusev – I was nether right nor wrong. A double count out is something you see on RAW, not a pay per view. The fact that there has been a lot of build up with Lana and Summer Rae and they didn’t have a bigger altercation is a real let down.
Stephen Amell and Neville vs. Stardust and King Barrett – I was right. This was a gimme in regards to predictions, because they weren’t going to let an actor lose. I have to give credit where credit’s due, Stephen Amell held his own and with a few more months of practice I could see him be a middle card wrestler.
Ryback vs. Big Show vs. The Miz – I was right. Ryback came back and did the best he could to give a perform match against two people with completely different body types and he retained the championship.
Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper vs. Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose – I was right. The crowd did a complete 180 on Roman Reigns as a sea of boos flooded the arena anytime he was tagged in. Bray and Luke did their part to make this as exciting as it could, but it was Dean who was the real star and that’s why he and Roman won.
John Cena vs. Seth Rollins – I was wrong. This was a really good match, with some great moves and some really cool examples of strength. The way each picked the other up to perform AA’s was really impressive and thanks to an interference by Jon Stewart against John Cena Rollins won the match.
The Bella Twins and Alicia Fox vs. Naomi, Sasha Banks and Tamina vs. Paige, Charlotte and Becky Lynch – I was right. I picked Paige’s team to win, but I picked the wrong team member to get the pin. Tamina did stand out this match as she did most of the heavy lifting as well as cost the team the match by getting them eliminated. Team Bella played the heel part and stood in the back while the others became tired, but it was Becky who would take on Brie and eventually pin her for the win.
Kevin Owens vs. Cesaro – I was wrong. This match was really short and considering the time the pay per view ended, this match could have continued 10 more minutes. Kevin only performed on pop up powerbomb and Cesaro finally gave Kevin the swing, but in the end it was Kevin who came out victorious.
Brock Lesnar vs. The Undertaker – I was right, but with an *. The match was great with Undertaker showing off some old school moves and giving us some pretty favorable gifs and a possible new meme. The undertaker held his own, but did a secret tap out that no one except the time keeper saw. After the ref reversed the call, Undertaker gave Lesnar a low blow he performed hells gate and as Lesnar flipped him off he passed out. The ref didn’t raise Lesnar’s arm three times or anything, he just called it as a win for Undertaker.
Jon Stewart never came out and gave his reason for siding with Seth Rollins, but tomorrow on RAW there is suppose to be some pretty interesting things going on. Sting was suppose to be at Summerslam, so maybe he’ll come out and challenge Lesnar for a match at Night of Champions.
