In the wake of missing the mark on a few events, Roman Reigns at last slew The Beast at SummerSlam on Sunday in Brooklyn, as he beat Brock Lesnar to win the Universal Championship out of the blue and end Lesnar’s 500-day rule.
The match started as a one-on-one amongst Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns, with Strowman standing ringside relishing his chance. Reigns were on the offensive from the beginning, Superman punches and spearing Lesnar more than once.
While it appeared as though it was the repeat from Goldberg-Lesnar at the 2016 Survivor Series was on, Lesnar battled back and got Reigns with a guillotine gag and afterward a parade of German suplexes.
Reigns battled back and went for a spear on Lesnar who was on the ropes. Lesnar moved and Reigns struck Strowman, sending the mammoth to the floor.
Lesnar would heap on, hitting Strowman with an F-5, and smacking Strowman again and again. Lesnar took the Money in the Bank case and threw it towards the entrance as in enticing strawman and showing off as the man in control. With Brock emphasis on Strowman, Reigns got Lesnar with another spear, this one wrecking him enough for the three-check.
The fight between Reigns and Lesnar has been a long time really taking shape, going back to WrestleMania 31 when Seth Rollins intruded in their match by cashing in his Money in the Bank case to end up as the WWE champion.
Reigns earned another chance to confront Lesnar again at WrestleMania 34 in April, however, The Beast Incarnate won in the match to hold the Universal title.
Regardless of his past failure, The Big Dog has given another open door soon after at the Greatest Royal Rumble in Saudi Arabia. The session was a steel cage match which was won by Lesnar.
But ever since that this match is going back and forth with Reigns on the verge of winning on a few events. But the beast held his nerves ever since and won on each occasion. But Lesnar reign has ended and a new chapter in raw’s history has arrived with a new king at its center.
Ronda Rousey wins her first ever women’s championship
Another match at the WWE SummerSlam saw, Rousey, crushed Alexa Bliss to successful rise as the new boss in WWE Raw arena and become the first lady in history to hold titles in both UFC and WWE.
The match was a mere 5 minutes in total where Bliss tried to run from of the time, playing mind games but all she could do was avoid the inevitable.
With the triumph, Rousey becomes the 6th Raw ladies champions ever, joining Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, Bayley, Jax, and Bliss. The title was first introduced as the WWE ladies’ title before WrestleMania 32 in 2016 – with Flair croning as the titleholder – and was later rebranded as the Raw ladies’ title when the organization split into two brands (Raw and SmackDown) soon thereafter.
