Team B.A.D. was the first to be eliminated by Team Bella when Brie pinned Tamina. Team PCB got the win after Becky Lynch pins Brie Bella.
Kevin Owens def. Cesaro
The match of the night contender was up next when Kevin Owens battles Cesaro. It was a really great match. Maybe not as great as some would of think. It was a back-and-forth battle where both men land incredible moves. Unfortunately, the crowd wasn’t as hot on this one wich was a shame. The end saw Owens hitting Cesaro with a twisting neckbreaker off the top and then his patented Pop-up Powerbomb to earn the win.
The Undertaker def. Brock Lesnar
The main event was a big one where the Undertaker squares off against Brock Lesnar in a rematch of Wrestlemania XXX deemed “Too Big for Wrestlemania”. Undertaker look to be in a good shape for this match. Lesnar hit a F-5 trought the announce table wich got the crowd off their feet and of course a lot of suplexes. Undertaker kickout of 2 others F-5 while Lesnard kickout of the Tombstone Piledriver. We got a controversy finish. Lesnar had Undertaker in the Kimura Lock when the bell rang without any signs by the referee. While the ref argues with the time keeper, Undertaker low blow Lesnar and lock in Hell’s Gate. Lesnar refuse to give up by giving Undertaker the finger but eventually passed out. Taker wins by soumission. Replays shows the Undertaker taping out to Lesnar wich was only saw by the time keeper not the ref. Paul Heyman was really frustrated and declared that Brock was the winner. But officially Undertaker wins that one.
Overall it was a good show. Not going to said that great. In my humble opinion there was to many tag match on the card. The ending was bad. The crowd didn’t knew what happen. Match of the night for me goes to Cena vs Rollins(Seth being the MVP of the night). NXT had a better showing than Summerslam by far. Not the best Summerslam compares to the last couple of year but it was enjoyable.
