Roman Reigns wins iconic brawl over Brock Lesnar to remain Undisputed Champion

Roman-Reigns-Brock-Lesnar-073022-WWE-FTR WWE

WWE's next premium live event occurred on Saturday as Summerslam took place at Nissan Stadium in Nashville.

Fans criticized WWE for making the main event featuring Undisputed Universal Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar in a Last Man Standing match. It was going to be the third time they met since October 2021, with Reigns winning the first two. People wanted to see fresh matchups.

Instead, Reigns and Lesnar delivered an epic affair. It was one everyone will remember for a long time. But, in the end, it was Reigns who completed the clean sweep, defeating Lesnar in an iconic battle to remain the champion.

Before the match began, Lesnar entered on a tractor to a thunderous ovation from the crowd. From there, the war was on.

Lesnar and Reigns delivered the brutality and then some. Lesnar almost had Reigns finished on more than one occasion, and Reigns did the same. The fans were on their feet, wondering who would stay down. 

Lesnar and Reigns were down when Theory came down with a referee looking to cash in his Money in the Bank briefcase. But Lesnar made sure that didn't happen as Lesnar delivered an F5. From there, Reigns took control. 

With help from his cousins and members of The Bloodline, The Usos, Reigns used spears and belt shots to try and keep Lesnar down. But, like Reigns earlier in the match, somehow, Lesnar kept making it to his feet. 

Reigns connected on one more belt shot to down Lesnar. To ensure he didn't get up, Reigns and The Usos dumped everything ringside to keep Lesnar down to the count of 10 to remain the king of WWE. 

Also on the show, Logan Paul beat The Miz in his singles debut, Pat McAfee defeated Happy Corbin, Bianca Belair retained the Raw Women's title over Becky Lynch, and Liv Morgan remained the SmackDown Women's title by beating Ronda Rousey.

Here is what happened at WWE Summerslam 2022.

Roman Reigns wins memorable brawl

Roman Reigns def. Brock Lesnar to retain the WWE Undisputed Universal Championship. 

What a Last Man Standing match. We saw tractors, the tractor lifting the ring and it being on a tilt with Reigns rolling out of the ring, tables, briefcases, and more. 

Lesnar and Reigns delivered the brutality and then some. Lesnar almost had Reigns finished on more than one occasion, and Reigns did the same. The fans were on their feet wondering who would stay down.

By far, the best Last Man Standing match I've ever seen. A fantastic story told by both guys.  

Brock Lesnar coming out in style

Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns one more time

It's time for the main event of WWE Summerslam as Roman Reigns puts his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship on the line against Brock Lesnar. 

It's been promoted as the final match between the two. Who gets it done?

Ronda Rousey loses in controversial fashion

Liv Morgan def. Ronda Rousey to remain the SmackDown Women's Championship. 

Rousey controlled the entire match, working for the armbar and Morgan finding a way to escape.  

The former UFC women's bantamweight champion locked in a triangle armbar. The referee looking at the shoulders of Rousey, counted to three. What he didn't see was Morgan tapped out before the three count. 

Rousey was upset and put the armbar once again on Morgan. Then after WWE officials pulled her off, Rousey gave the referee an armbar for good measure. 

Very interesting way to go about that. But well done. 

Ronda Rousey returns

At Summerslam, Liv Morgan defends the SmackDown Women's title against Ronda Rousey. 

Morgan shocked the wrestling world when she cashed her Money in the Bank briefcase to win the belt at the beginning of the month. 

I am intrigued to see what the move will be here. 

The Usos remain Unified Tag Team Champions

The Usos def. The Street Profits to retain the Unified Tag Team Champions. 

Solid match but not as good as the one at the beginning of the month. Montez Ford looked to have the match won for The Street Profits when he hit his sensational five-star frog splash. 

But he bounced off of Jey Uso and only got a two-count. Ford blamed special referee Jeff Jarrett for a slow count. The Usos dumped Ford over the guardrail and into the fans. The Usos took care of Angelo Dawkins when they hit the 1D to remain the champions. 

I don't get what the point of the match was if The Usos were going to retain. New champions need to happen sooner rather than later. 

WWE Unified Tag Team title match

Now at WWE Summerslam 2022, The Usos put their Unified Tag Team belts on the line against The Street Profits. This should be the show stealer like it was at Money in the Bank. 

Pat McAfee shines yet again

Pat McAfee def. Happy Corbin. 

Like Logan Paul, McAfee has the wrestling gene inside of him. Despite Corbin being the bigger foe, McAfee showed great athleticism and his knack for selling moves. 

The match came down McAfee flipping out of The End of Days and pushed Corbin into the referee. McAfee punted Corbin in the groin, went to the top rope, and hit a Canadian Destroyer for the win. 

I want to see McAfee inside the ring more because he's a natural.

Pat McAfee returns

Right now at WWE Summerslam, Pat McAfee takes on Happy Corbin.

McAfee shined in his match at WrestleMania 38 against Theory. 

Can he do it again?

Edge returns to help The Mysterios win

Rey and Dominik Mysterio def. Finn Balor and Damian Priest.

A fun match that had the heels looking like they were on their way to victory until the music of their former leader, Edge, hit. The former WWE champion took out his former partners in crime. That led to the Mysterios hitting the 619 and Rey connecting on a splash for the victory. Not much reaction to Edge returning which is disappointing. 

No DQ match

Right now at WWE Summerslam, Judgment Day (Damian Priest and Finn Balor) take on Rey and Dominik Mysterio in a no disqualification tag team match. 

This match stems from Judgment Day's attack on The Mysterios on this past Monday's Raw.

Lashley runs over Theory to retain title

Lashley def. Theory to retain the United States title.

Theory tried everything to get out of the match. He attacked Lashley with his briefcase before the bell rang and attempted to leave the ring. 

But Lashley caught up to him and had things in control from there. 

He beat Theory from pillar to post, punctuating with The Hurt Lock, which left Theory with no choice but to tap out. 

Do we see Theory later tonight?

Could be a monster night for Theory

Now at WWE Summerslam, Bobby Lashley defends the United States title against the Money in the Bank briefcase holder, Theory. 

Theory has been teasing beating Lashley to regain the belt and cashing in his briefcase against the winner of the main event between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar. 

Logan Paul shines in victory

Logan Paul def. The Miz.

Just like at WrestleMania, Paul shined yet again. He showed great athleticism in doing moves off the top rope, sold The Miz's moves really well, and the crowd was behind him throughout the contest. 

With Miz lying on the announcers table, Paul went back to the top turnbuckle and nailed a picture-perfect frog splash through the table. Miz's wife, Maryse, jumped up on the apron and tried to distract Paul. Miz grabbed Paul's necklace but missed him and hit his wife. Paul hit Miz's own finishing move, The Skull Crushing Finale, for the pin and victory in his singles debut. 

Paul's athletic ability is remarkable and has caught on fairly quickly. Hopefully, we see more of him inside the ring. 

Logan Paul makes WWE singles debut

Up next at WWE Summerslam, Logan Paul takes on The Miz.

It is Paul's WWE singles debut. He did well at WrestleMania but that was in a tag team situation.

Bayley returns

Lynch and Belair shook hands to the delight of the fans.

Then former WWE Women's Champion Bayley made her grand return after being away for over a year. Then Io Shirai joined her along with former NXT star Dakota Kai. The trio hit the ring, ready to pounce on Belair. Then Lynch came from nowhere to have Belair's back. The heels left much to the dismay of the fans.  

Bianca Belair retains Raw Women's title

Belair def. Lynch to remain the Raw Women's Championship.

Once again, a fantastic back-and-forth affair between Belair and Lynch. 

Lynch appeared to be on the verge of winning the belt one more time as she connected with the Manhandle Slam. But Belair kicked out. Lynch took Belair to the top and went for another attempt at her finisher. Belair reversed and performed an excellent Spanish Fly. She quickly grabbed her, hit the KOD to retain the belt.

Excellent way to kick off the show. 

WrestleMania rematch for Raw Women's title

We are kicking off the main card of WWE Summerslam as Bianca Belair defends the Raw Women's title against Becky Lynch. 

Lynch made her return from a 16-month layoff to beat Belair at last year's Summerslam. However, Belair got her win back at WrestleMania to regain the gold. 

The rubber match is here. Who gets it done?

Can Theory make history?

Logan Paul is ready for his WWE singles debut
