WWE SummerSlam 2016: Results, Live Updates & Highlights

(WWE.com)
The time is finally here. SummerSlam 2016 has arrived, and it promises to be an unreal show. From Brock Lesnar-Randy Orton to Dean Ambrose-Dolph Ziggler to Finn Balor- Seth Rollins and much more, this is one of the deepest cards we’ve seen in years.
The Barclays Center was the home to last night’s NXT Takeover and tonight that arena hosts even greater professional wrestling, with SummerSlam’s main card set to begin in Brooklyn at 7 pm EST.
Check this page for full results and match recaps, being updated live throughout the night. As soon as WWE posts them on YouTube, we’ll also add in highlights from all the matches. Below is a link for to how to stream the event live, and a link to my predictions and previews for all the matches. Let’s hope SummerSlam is as good as we all expect it to be.




Brock Lesnar defeats Randy Orton by TKO
As the match was starting to pick up steam, Lesnar delivered some stiff elbows to Orton’s head and busted him open real wide. The crazy amount of bleeding from Orton’s head forced the doctors to call the match off. The ring announcer declared Lesnar the winner by TKO. After the abrupt ending, Shane McMahon came out to tend to Orton and Lesnar F5’d the Smackdown GM to end the show.

Rusev (C) (with Lana) vs. Roman Reigns for the United States Championship never officially begins
The match never officially started after a chaotic brawl before the bell left Rusev (kayfabe) injured and Reigns was thrown out by the referees. After Rusev was being tended to by the doctors, Reigns came back and sprinted down the ramp to nail Rusev with a spear.


Finn Balor defeats Seth Rollins for the WWE Universal Championship
Finn Balor is the first WWE Universal champion after beating Seth Rollins clean. Balor kicked out of a pedigree earlier in the match, and then the Demon King landed a Coup de Gras to win the new title. The Brooklyn crowd popped big when Balor won but wasn’t too fond of the red belt he was awarded.

Natalya & Alexa Bliss & Nikki Bella defeats Becky Lynch & Carmella & Naomi by pinfall
Nikki Bella made her comeback as the unannounced competitor taking Eva Marie’s place. After a lengthy match, Alexa Bliss and Natalya cleared the ring to allow Nikki Bella to hit Carmella with her new finisher, a TKO, to get the win for the heel trio.

Dean Ambrose (C) defeats Dolph Ziggler by pinfall to retain the WWE World Championship
Ambrose got the victory over Ziggler after hitting the Dirty Deeds. This was a decent match, but the Brooklyn crowd was quiet throughout.

New Day (C) vs. The Club for the Tag Team Championship ends in a New Day disqualification; New Day retains the titles
Jon Stewart introduced New Day and was in their corner. After some back and forth, Big E made a run-in to draw the disqualification. After beating down Gallows and Anderson, Big E drank from The Club’s jar and spit out the liquid (don’t ask) and then danced with his New Day compadres and Stewart in the ring.

AJ Styles defeats John Cena by pinfall
These two pulled out everything in their arsenal in this classic. Cena kicked out of a Styles Clash on one occasion and a Phenomenal Forearm on another. Conversely, Styles kicked out of two Attitude Adjustments, including one from the top rope. Styles connected on another Styles Clash and made sure to get the 3 count by adding another Phenomenal Forearm for good measure to pick up the pinfall.

The Miz (C) (with Maryse) defeats Apollo Crews by pinfall to retain the Intercontinental Championship
The Miz beat Apollo Crews after landing the Skullcrushing Finale off a distraction. This was by fair the shortest match of the night. I guess it’s not a good omen when people constantly get your name wrong. Poor Apollo Creed.

Charlotte defeats Sasha Banks (C) by pinfall to win the Women’s Championship
Charlotte regained the Women’s Championship after a hellacious match. Sasha had Charlotte in a Banks Statement when Charlotte rolled over into a pin to get the 1-2-3.
