WWE SummerSlam Match Results

This weekend was all about WWE’s biggest Pay Per View of the summer, and with 13 matches booked for the card and over six hours of time set aside for the show, it was definitely one of the longest WWE shows in recent memory. With so much to cover, let’s get right to the results of a very full night of wrestling!

Live From Brooklyn, New York

Pre-Show Matches

– American Alpha, The Usos, and The Hype Bros d. The Vaudevillains, The Ascension, and Breezango (Jey Uso pinned Simon Gotch, Top Rope Splash)

– Sami Zayn and Neville d. The Dudley Boyz (Neville pinned Bubba, Red Arrow)

– Sheamus d. Cesaro in Match 1 of their Best of Seven Series (pinfall, Brogue Kick)


– JeriKO d. Enzo and Big Cass (Jericho pinned Enzo, Codebreaker)

– Charlotte d. Sasha Banks to win the WWE Women’s Championship (pinfall, rollup)

– The Miz d. Apollo Crews to retain the WWE Intercontinental Championship (pinfall, Skull-Crushing Finale)

– AJ Styles d. John Cena (pinfall, Phenomenal Forearm)

After the match, Cena left a “Never Give Up” headband in the ring, symbolic of…something?

– Gallows and Anderson d. The New Day by DQ. New Day retain the WWE Tag Team Championships.

Jon Stewart was in New Day’s corner, and The Club eventually cornered him and tried to destroy his…well, you know. Big E ran in to make the save, and the ref called for the bell.

– Dean Ambrose d. Dolph Ziggler to retain the WWE World Heavyweight Championship (pinfall, Dirty Deeds)

– Nikki Bella, Alexa Bliss, and Natalya d. Carmella, Becky Lynch, and Naomi (Nikki pinned Carmella, TKO)

– Finn Balor d. Seth Rollins to win the WWE Universal Championship (pinfall, Coup de Grace)

– Rusev vs Roman Reigns never took place. Rusev attacked Reigns before the match in revenge, but Reigns beat down Rusev until he was declared unable to compete. Reigns left, but returned to Spear an injured Rusev on the ramp. Again, remind us who the good guy is?

– Brock Lesnar d. Randy Orton by TKO. At a certain point, Lesnar mounted Orton and hit him with a flurry of elbows, leaving Orton lying, quite literally, in a pool of his own blood. After Lesnar resumed attacking Orton several times, the referee mercifully ended the match. After the match, Shane McMahon got in Lesnar’s face, leading to an F5. A very disturbing end to the show, and definitely not recommended for all audiences.
