Seth Rollins defeats Brock Lesnar for the Universal title
Fans seem to seldom enjoy Brock Lesnar matches in protest of his part-time deal, but there is no denying that when the booking is right and he has the correct dance partner, he is capable of magic.
With Seth Rollins at SummerSlam for the Universal title, Lesnar had one of his best nights in recent memory, and yet, he lost the title.
Rollins defeated Lesnar clean as a whistle after a third Curb Stomp to pick up the 1-2-3.
The Beast Incarnate had only regained the Universal title from Rollins after cashing in his Money in the Bank contract at Extreme Rules last month.
However, despite taking a few brutal beatings over the past couple of weeks, Rollins managed to come out on top in SummerSlam’s main event and earn a decisive victory over a legendary performer like Lesnar.
Fans displeased with Goldberg’s return after disaster match with Undertaker
Goldberg had a disaster outing at the last Saudi Arabia show and Dolph Ziggler was tasked with building him back up at SummerSlam on Sunday.
The Showoff did his job as the former WCW icon had his redemption the same way The Undertaker had his at Extreme Rules.
Goldberg won the match the same way he’s won any other match: hit a few spears and the jackhammer – one, two, three.
Ziggler kept picking the mic up after the match and invited more punishment from the Hall of Famer.
The idea from WWE is to rebuild Goldberg’s name ahead of the Crown Jewel pay-per-view in Saudi Arabia later this year.
While that seemed to be achieved and the live audience enjoyed the moment, plenty on Twitter did not.
Matt Riddle reveals tense real-life backstage confrontation with Goldberg
Any wrestling fan knows that Matt Riddle and Goldberg do not get along at this point.
For the first time ever, the two men were in the same place under a WWE roof on Sunday and they finally came face-to-face.
In case you missed it, NXT star Riddle absolutely slated the WWE Hall of Famer for his terrible performance against the Undertaker in Saudi Arabia.
He doubled down on that take when he spoke to talkSPORT at Download Festival this summer and has refused to back down on his claims against either Goldberg or Brock Lesnar.
At SummerSlam, Riddle was backstage filming Watch Along on the WWE Network and he watched the Goldberg match.
During the show, he explained the altercation he had with Goldberg earlier that day.
