“Legends Never Die.”
One night after a historic and heavily controversial SummerSlam, the 1161st edition of WWE Monday Night RAW came to you, live, from the site of “The Biggest Event of the Summer”, the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY. The rematch that was deemed “too big for WrestleMania” at SummerSlam between Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker has the world buzzing over its very controversial and questionable conclusion. During an absolute classic of a match between “The Beast” and “The Phenom”, both legends would throw everything in their arsenal at each other, including Brock Lesnar putting The Undertaker through the French announce table with an F-5, locking The Undertaker in the Kimura Lock, The Undertaker spiking Brock Lesnar with the Tombstone Piledriver, and more punches and suplexes than one could count. However, at one point in the match, Brock Lesnar would have The Undertaker locked in the Kimura Lock and, with the referee making sure that Brock’s shoulders were not pinned to the mat, The Undertaker would tap out to the Kimura Lock and the timekeeper would ring the bell despite the referee not calling for the bell. This would lead to an argument between the referee and the timekeeper and, with the referee’s back turned, The Undertaker would use a low blow on Brock Lesnar before The Undertaker locked Brock in Hell’s Gate and “The Beast” would show one more sign of defiance to “The Deadman” before Brock would pass out from the pain, giving The Undertaker the win by submission. After the match, both Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman were enraged by the controversial finish to the match and, with Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman scheduled to be on RAW, we are sure to hear and see just how angry “The Beast” and his advocate truly are. What will Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman have to say about The Undertaker’s questionable victory as well as the controversial actions of the timekeeper and the referee?
History was made at SummerSlam as, for the first time ever, one Superstar has possession of both the WWE World Heavyweight Championship and the United States Championship as, in a title-for-title match where the winner would walk out with both championships, John Cena and Seth Rollins would take it to one another, but the shocker of the match would go to the Host of SummerSlam Jon Stewart. The retired former host of The Daily Show would instantly make headlines by interfering in the championship match, inexplicably attacking John Cena with a steel chair and allowing Seth Rollins to capitalize with the Pedigree on a steel chair, scoring the three-count on John Cena to win the match and walk out as both the WWE World Heavyweight Champion and the United States Champion. As revealed on WWE’s official Twitter account earlier today, the WWE World Heavyweight and United States Champion has been touring WWE Headquarters in Stamford, CT with WWE COO Triple H with their tour expected to be explained tonight on RAW. Will Seth Rollins be receiving his statue in the lobby of WWE Headquarters as requested prior to his SummerSlam victory? What will John Cena have to say about losing the United States Championship, not to mention the unexpected involvement of Jon Stewart?
