The Universal Championship match between Braun Strowman and Bray Wyatt closed out this year’s WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view. This was a Falls Count Anywhere Match.
Notes written in real-time during the match:
The match started with Strowman attacking Wyatt in the corner but Wyatt no-sold and laughed it off and picked up and slammed Strowman. Michael Cole told fans that this would be a brawl and not a wrestling match.
As they got out to ringside, Wyatt hit Strowman with a toolbox to the gut and back but Strowman turned things around by plowing through Wyatt through the barricade. Yes, a spot they have done 1,000 times on WWE TV. Wyatt no-sold and got back up but Strowman chokeslammed Wyatt on the announcer’s table. He landed on the corner of the table so it had to hurt really bad. Wyatt got up again and rammed Strowman into the steps but Strowman picked up the steps and rammed them in Wyatt’s face. Strowman got the running power slam but Wyatt kicked out of the pin attempt.
Both men fought up the ramp and Strowman rammed Wyatt into the screen by the stage. They fought to the backstage area. Cole described the Gorilla Position as the “control area.” Wyatt hit Sister Abigail in the Gorilla Position but Strowman kicked out. The fight continued back onto the stage as Strowman was driven into the screen.
Wyatt applied the Mandible Claw at ringside but Strowman drove Wyatt into the ring apron. Back in the ring, Strowman hit the second running powerslam of the match and Wyatt kicked out of the pin attempt. Strowman brought a box cutter into the ring and he used it to cut the ring mat to expose the wood underneath it but Wyatt caught him in a Uranage slam and Sister Abigail. Wyatt then hit another Sister Abigail and that was enough for the win. Wyatt is the new champion.
Roman Reigns appeared out of nowhere to attack Bray. Roman then speared Braun at ringside. Roman hit Braun with the chair several times and then he speared Bray in the ring. The show closed with Roman holding up the Universal Title.
