Today will see the fallout from last night's SummerSlam event, where hopefully WWE will be able to explain why they decided to make some of those questionable decisions that went down.
Triple H tells Seth Rollins that he's no longer the future, he's the now, and that they will unveil his statue tonight. A rematch between Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose vs. Bray Wyatt and Luke Harper will take place (meaning my assessment that that match at SummerSlam was nothing but a Raw match is even more validated) and we're starting off with Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman.
PROMO: Heyman complains about the results of last night's match, as expected. A challenge is issued to The Undertaker for tonight. Bo Dallas comes out instead. He tells him Lesnar can make his dreams come true if he just Bolieves. Lesnar tosses him around like a ragdoll with German suplex after German suplex. Brock leaves, but goes back for more, and then again for an F5.
MATCH: The New Day vs. The Lucha Dragons
The New Day do a rendition of Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York". So good.
RESULTS: The New Day via pinfall.
REACTION: Decent enough match. No complaints.
As The New Day are celebrating, The Dudley Boyz make their return!!!
VIDEO PACKAGE: A video is shown of John Cena granting his 500th wish for the Make-A-Wish foundation to Rocco Lanzer.
BACKSTAGE: Triple H and Stephanie McMahon take a look at the statue. Seth Rollins comes in and says WWE is so much better with them in charge. They say it's so much better with him as "the man" in return.
MATCH: Roman Reigns & Dean Ambrose vs. Bray Wyatt & Luke Harper
RESULTS: Roman Reigns and Dean Ambrose via disqualification after interference from some new guy.
REACTION: I saw this match last night, so I didn't care about anything other than the debut of this new member of The Wyatt Family.
I have no idea who this guy is, so until I find that out, I'm referring to him as BigTall McBeard. He's big, and tall, and has a beard. He's sort of like a stretched out Bull Dempsey. Update: Apparently, he is Braun Stowman from NXT. I don't know this guy at all, which surprises me.
PROMO: The Miz's guests on this edition of MizTV are Paige, Charlotte, and Becky Lynch. Paige starts yacking about how they're just as dominant as any man. (Side note: Why is this now an anti-man thing instead of a pro-woman thing? I hate that garbage.) The Bella Twins and Alicia Fox come out to talk about how they're the real dominant ones. The fans chant "we want Sasha" and that trips them up. The Miz gets a big pop when he tells them all to shut up. He says all he sees are a bunch of cackling women who wrestle like a bunch of girls. PCB takes offense to this and Team Bella attacks them while they're distracted. The fans chant that they want Sasha Banks yet again.
MATCH: Team PCB vs. Team Bella
RESULTS: Team Bella via pinfall (Alicia pinning Paige).
REACTION: This crowd could not give a single shit, doing the wave and busying themselves with random chants. It's a shame, but it's true that this match and last night's match pale in comparison to the awesome match Bayley and Sasha Banks had at TakeOver.
A match is scheduled to take place with Stardust and King Barrett, but Stardust attacks Barrett. Neville comes out and they fight for a moment until Stardust escapes.
PROMO: Jon Stewart comes to the ring. He says he cost John Cena the match because he didn't want him to tie Ric Flair's record. Ric Flair comes out and says he was rooting for Cena. Cena comes out. After talking about how that sucked what he did, he gives Stewart an Attitude Adjustment while Flair just stood by, awkwardly. Later, Cena talks to Renee Young and of course, this feud is not over yet.
MATCH: Dolph Ziggler, Cesaro, Ryback & Randy Orton vs. Rusev, Kevin Owens, Big Show & Sheamus
RESULTS: Randy Orton gets the win for his team via pinfall over Sheamus.
REACTION: Okay match. Ultimately meaningless, as these always are, but meh, it was fun enough to watch to justify having it on the card.
After the match, Kevin Owens and Rusev argue with Big Show, then team up against him. When they're done with him, the babyface team all go after him as well for some reason. Bullies.
PROMO: Backstage, Bray Wyatt is joined by Luke Harper and the officially named Braun Stowman.
PROMO: Backstage, Stephanie McMahon and Triple H get security to escort John Cena out of the arena so he doesn't interfere with the celebration for Seth Rollins.
PROMO: Stephanie McMahon and Triple H come out to the ring for the celebration. They get the crowd to sing happy birthday to Vince McMahon, as he turns 70 years old today. Funny enough, they say he's pissed off backstage and that this wasn't really planned. The celebration starts and Triple H says Rollins is a man with hustle, loyalty, and respect, introducing Rollins to come out. He talks up his accomplishments and when they unveil the statue, STING is behind the curtain instead! He attacks Seth Rollins and poses with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship to end the show.
