WWE Summerslam 8/21/16

The biggest party of the summer comes to the bright lights of New York.

Tonight, Summerslam is here.  15 years in the making, Brock Lesnar Vs Randy Orton.  We will also see the first WWE Universal Champion be crowned, when Seth Rollins faces Finn Balor.  And for the WWE Championship, Dolph Ziggler will face Dean Ambrose.

The Summerslam Kick-Off show is upon us, so keep checking here throughout the night.

We are live at the Barclays Center.  Renee Young welcomes us to the Summerslam Kick-Off show.  Tonight’s panelists are Booker T, Lita, and Jerry “The King” Lawler.

Tom Phillips is at the Social Media Lounge.  Tonight’s guest will be the WWE Women’s Champion, “The Boss” Sasha Banks.

One the Kick-Off show, we have a 12-man tag match.  Also The Dudley Boyz Vs Sami Zayn and Neville.

Best of 7 Series kicks off tonight, with Cesaro Vs Sheamus, on the Kick-Off show too.

3 matches in the next 2 hours.

Tonight, John Cena Vs AJ Styles, one on one.

Video profiling the match is showing now.

Next, breaking down the IC match between The Miz Vs Apollo Crews.

Apollo Crews last week showed The Miz who he is.

Tonight, Apollo has an opportunity to become the new IC Champion.

Tom Phillips is with Chris Jericho and Kevin Owens.

Chris apologized for getting Tom’s name wrong.  Sorry Phillip.

He also has to apologize to Enzo Amore for saying he couldn’t be a certified G.  He googled it, and saw you can be a certified G for $89.99.  So he has a certified G.

He’s talking about chemistry, something you can’t teach.

KO said you can, he had a 96 in chemistry in high school.  But not that chemistry, Jericho and Owens has a bond.  And they will take out the two hometown boys.  Enzo will get home, and see his father is crying, and his mother is wearing a Kevin Owens T-shirt.

And they will teach something else, IT.

JBL, Mauro Ranallo, and David Otunga are ready to call for the 12-man tag match.

The Vaudevillains, The Ascension, and Breezango Vs Hype Bros, The Usos, and American Alpha.

The Hype Bros, The Usos, and American Alpha win the match when Jey Uso stole the pin from Chad Gable.  And now all six men are bickering among each other.

The Tag Team Championship are coming to Smackdown Live.

Tonight, Ziggler vs Ambrose for WWE World Championship.

Video footage is showing now.

How small is that window closing for Dolph Ziggler?

He could very well be a dangerous opponent for Dean Ambrose.

We can still post questions for “The Boss” with Sasha being a guest in the Social Media Lounge.

Baron Corbin shows up.  His match with Kalisto has been cancelled tonight.  He is a man about making money.  He tells Kalisto he hopes he is comfortable sitting at his couch with his wife.  He is going to put him permanently.

Tonight, United States Championship, with Reigns Vs Rusev.

Video footage is being shown from 2 weeks ago.

Tonight, Women’s Championship is on the line, Sasha Banks Vs Charlotte.

Video of these two are showing.

“The Boss” is answering questions now in the Social Media Lounge.

Cathy Dennis is with Cesaro.

Cesaro has something to prove with Sheamus, and tonight sets the tone for the rest of the series.  But this is the perfect way to settle this.  Less talk, more wrestling.

Cesaro Vs Sheamus, Best of 7 Series is tonight at the Kick-Off show.

But next, The Dudley Boyz Vs Zayn and Neville.

Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves handle their portion of the show, with tag team action, now.

Neville and Sami Zayn win after The Dudleys had some miscommunication again, and we had The Helluva Kick, and Red Arrow.

Tonight, Rollins Vs Balor for the first WWE Universal Championship.

We see the video footage of the two right now.

We are just 33 minutes away from WWE Summerslam.

Sheamus Vs Cesaro is now.

Sheamus picks up the win with a Brogue Kick.  He takes the lead in the Best of 7 Series to 1-0.

Who is going to win tonight, Brock Lesnar Vs Randy Orton?

Orton Vs Lesnar video is showing.

WWE Summerslam is now.

We are live at the Barclay Center, in Brooklyn.

Michael Cole, Byron Saxton, and Corey Graves join us for the show.

Brooklyn’s own Enzo and Cass begin the show.

My name is Enzo Amore, and I am a certified G, and a bona-fide stud, and you can’t teach that.  This guy here is Big Cass.  He is 7 feet tall, and you can’t teach that.

Badda bing, realist cats in the room, how ya doin?

This match is dedicated to all the teachers who told them they’d never make anything of themselves.  Dedicated to the ones tryin’ to make money for the kids, so they can eat food for dinner.  How ya doin’?

This is a dream, and that dream will become a reality.  How ya doin’?

There was once this man named Blue Eyes who sang to New York, saying if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere, how ya doin’?

They are ready for JeriKO.

And Cass tell us there is one word to describe them, and he’ll spell it out for us.

S.A.W.F.T.

Tag team match is set, Enzo and Cass Vs JeriKO.

JeriKO win the match, when Owens launched Jericho into a Code Breaker.

Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan run into Mick Foley.  And they are greeted by Jon Stewart and his son.  Stephanie McMahon runs into all of them.

New Day interrupt the fun, telling us we all need to use the power of positivity.

Next, Women’s Championship is on the line.  Sasha Banks Vs Charlotte.

Charlotte wins the match, and the title when she rolled Sasha up, and pinned her, even when Sasha had the Bank Statement on Charlotte.

An incredible match here between the two women.  We even saw a Razor’s Edge off the top rope.

Charlotte is now a 2-time Women’s Champion.

A moment with The Club.

Doctor to Doctor to Phenomenal.

And they run into Finn Balor.

Hmmmm.

Mauro Ranallo, JBL, and David Otunga welcome us to their portion of the show.

The Miz Vs Apollo Crews, for the Intercontinental Championship is now.

The Miz retains his IC Title with a Skull Crushing Finale.

John Cena Vs AJ Styles is up now.

AJ Styles just beat John Cena, clean with a Styles Clash and a Phenomenal Forearm.

What an incredible match, and what a statement.  Styles kicked out of the Super AA, and Cena was beside himself, trying to figure out what to do.  Styles escaped from another AA, and picked up the clean win.

Incredible!!

Cena took off his armband, and put it in the middle of the ring, and saluted the crowd.  What a moment.

Footage from the two fans who won the Cricket Wireless WWE sweepstakes.

Oh lord, time for Jon Stewart.  Why?

Jon keeps talking, and nobody cares.

Jon is an honorary member of New Day, taking the place of Big E.

WWE Tag Team Championship match is now.  New Day Vs Gallows and Anderson.

New Day are DQ’d when Big E. comes back, and kicks Anderson and Gallows’ asses.

Big E. takes a swig of the balls jar, and spits it out.

New Day are still Tag Team Champions.

They saved Jon Stewart.

Ziggler Vs Ambrose, for the WWE World Championship is up now.

Ambrose wins the match, retains his title with Dirty Deeds.

A bit of a short match, and the crowd did not seem to care too much.

Footage from WWE Week in New York.

6-Woman tag match is up now.  Naomi, Becky Lynch, and Carmella Vs Natalya, Alexa Bliss, and ???

Nikki Bella.

So she is a heel, again.

Nikki, Nattie, and Alexa win with a Rack Attack.  Nikki pins Carmella.

Still 2 title matches are left, and the big match.  But we see segment from last week on Raw, with Reigns and Rusev.

Maria Menounos interviews Rusev.

He is ticked that Reigns mocked he and his wife Lana’s nuptials, and ruins her wedding dress.  Tonight, he will pay.

But first, for the WWE Universal Championship.  Balor Vs Rollins.

We have “The Demon King” in our presence.

Finn Balor just made history, being the first Universal Champion, hitting Coup De Gras, pinning Seth.

I loved the finish, a slow build, but an incredible ending.  I can’t wait to see the rematch.

We get to hear from the Summerslam panelists.

United States Championship is up now.  Roman Reigns Vs Rusev.

The match is ruled a no contest, when Reigns and Rusev attack each other when the action starts.  But Reigns destroys Rusev with a chair shot, and acts like a heel, with Rusev being the face.

After Rusev gets up in his own power, Reigns comes right back out, and spears Rusev.

If this was designed to be a double turn, it would be awesome.

We will see tomorrow.

Our main event, 15 years in the making…Orton Vs Lesnar is now.

Brock Lesnar won the match by TKO.  Orton hit 2 RKOs, one of them on the announce table, and Lesnar took over from there.  Making Randy bleed, and the referee stopped the match.

Shane came out after the match to check on Randy, and Brock blocked his path, even hitting a F-5 on Shane, and this ended the match.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

Overall, a fun night of action.  Surprised to see how the main event ended this way.  Fans were chanting for Goldberg, who didn’t show up.  So this would lead me to guess we will see Brock Vs Shane at Survivor Series?

Styles Vs Cena was amazing, as was Charlotte Vs Sasha.  Balor Vs Rollins was amazing, but Ziggler Vs Ambrose was very disappointing for some reason.

But where do we go from here?  What were your thoughts on the show?  Send them to me, and I will talk to you tomorrow.
