Monday Night Raw and SmackDown Live present WWE SummerSlam 2018 Results

Strap yourselves in for the biggest party of the summer! The pre-show has started. Our panel consists of Renee Young, Booker T, David Otunga and Sam Roberts. It looks like Peter Rosenberg and JBL will be doing some extraneous broadcasting duties, too. We have two hours, three matches, and I'm sure lots and lots of recap stuff, so I'll fill you in on anything noteworthy that happens (if anything does happen).

Mixed Tag Team Match: Andrade "Cien" Almas and Zelina Vega vs. Rusev and Lana

RESULT: Andrade "Cien" Almas and Zelina Vega win by pinfall (Vega pins Lana with her feet on the ropes)
THOUGHTS: Opener on a kickoff. You can't expect much. I'm cool with it.

Cruiserweight Championship Match: Cedric Alexander (c) vs. Drew Gulak

RESULT: Cedric Alexander retains the title by pinfall
THOUGHTS: Not as impressive of a match as I was hoping they would have, as I want more eyes on 205 Live. It was good, but it isn't going to turn any heads.

Raw Tag Team Championship Match: The B-Team (c) vs. The Revival

RESULT: The B-Team retain the titles by pinfall
THOUGHTS: Pretty stupid. Shame The Revival have been given no opportunities on the main roster. I get that their injuries got in the way, but this isn't a means to make up for it. This is just going to make it harder and harder to rehabilitate them and make them worth a damn. We're looking at another Ascension otherwise. Time is running out.

Intercontinental Championship Match: Dolph Ziggler (c) vs. Seth Rollins

RESULT: Seth Rollins wins the title by pinfall!
THOUGHTS: Phenomenal match. Loved it. Great way to start the show, and between this and the video package that was before it, I'm in such a better mood for SummerSlam. Please don't kill that mood, WWE.

The Bella Twins are interviewed by Renee Young. They start getting booed by the crowd when they're plugging their outside projects. They don't say much other than that they'll be paying attention to what happens tonight with Ronda Rousey.

SmackDown Tag Team Championship Match: The Bludgeon Brothers (c) vs. The New Day

RESULT: The New Day wins by disqualification when Rowan uses a hammer.
THOUGHTS: Lame ending to a good match.

Kevin Owens vs. Braun Strowman (Money in the Bank briefcase is on the line)

RESULT: Braun Strowman retains the briefcase by pinfall in a complete squash
THOUGHTS: Wow. He annihilated Owens. I didn't see that coming. I REALLY hope this means Strowman cashes in and beats Lesnar later tonight (and doesn't turn heel).

SmackDown Women's Championship Triple Threat Match: Carmella (c) vs. Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair

RESULT: Charlotte Flair wins the title by pinfall!
THOUGHTS: Disappointed that this was given to Flair again, but the match was really good.

After the match, the whole crowd is booing Flair and Lynch hugging, cheering for Becky. Then, Becky attacks her and the crowd erupts.

WWE Championship Match: AJ Styles (c) vs. Samoa Joe

RESULT: Samoa Joe wins the match by disqualification when AJ Styles uses a chair on him, meaning he retains the title.
THOUGHTS: You know how I feel about DQ endings. I wanted Joe to win the belt. If he wins it at Hell in a Cell, though, at least this one makes more sense than the tag title DQ.

Elias Musical Segment

After a long promo, Elias gets ready to play the guitar and it breaks. The crowd chants "you fucked up" as he flips out. No Bobby Lashley.

The Miz vs. Daniel Bryan

RESULT: The Miz wins by pinfall after using some kind of foreign object (brass knuckles?) snuck to him by Maryse ringside
THOUGHTS: I loved it. I thought the match was good and the ending was a really, really good way for it to go down.

Baron Corbin vs. Finn Balor

RESULT: Finn Balor (in his demon getup) wins by pinfall in a squash
THOUGHTS: Not a fan. The face paint doesn't give Balor any more personality or anything. I just don't get the fascination. Also, the second squash of the night? Of course, here's where everyone will complain to me that I "don't like anything" despite liking pretty much everything on this card, just because I don't get the Demon Balor love.

Backstage Daniel Bryan is being checked on. Brie Bella gives him a pep talk, as he's frustrated about losing to The Miz. He tells her to go out to enjoy the show while he punches some walls or something.

United States Championship Match: Shinsuke Nakamura (c) vs. Jeff Hardy

RESULT: Shinsuke Nakamura retains the title by pinfall
THOUGHTS: Bland and pretty boring. I think this should have come at a different spot in the card instead of following up a lackluster segment like Balor/Corbin. My energy is going down.

Randy Orton comes out and then changes his mind and leaves. That was dumb.

Raw Women's Championship Match: Alexa Bliss (c) vs. Ronda Rousey

RESULT: Ronda Rousey wins the title by submission!
THOUGHTS: The third squash of the night and arguably the only one that should have been a squash. There wasn't much to it.

Natalya celebrates in the ring with Ronda. Then, The Bella Twins celebrate as well (and get booed). 

Universal Championship Match: Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Roman Reigns

RESULT: Roman Reigns wins the title by pinfall
THOUGHTS: Let's hold off and see what happens with Braun Strowman....and the graphic is up, and the event is over. Lame. Very lame. You're going to hear me complain about this on the Pay-Per-Viewpoint review for the Smack Talk podcast, but at least you're going to hear a lot of positives, too.
