You know one of your crown jewel PPV events is somewhat of a bust when Nikki Bella of all people gets a bigger response than the two men who wrestled in the main event. As expected Lesnar Vs Orton main was a snooze fest except for the blade job or nah that caused blood to gush from Randy’s head.
But the blood is exactly what saved this match from becoming instantly forgettable. Becoming the latest wrestler to get his ass beat by Brock, might be the best thing to happen to Randy’s career so far because we know there is no way in hell the mainstream press would be this interested in a Randy Orton match if it wasn’t for Brock. And the fans watching didn’t give a sh*t either until they saw the blood and now all of a sudden it’s “Poor Randy”
Randy knew no one would give a damn about his Summerslam match unless he agreed to get fed to Brock. You don’t have much of a choice after being gone for months on a weed smoking, rehab, and trolling sabbatical – while you are supposedly rehabbing a “shoulder injury” after being seen working out on a not so shoulder friendly machine.
Dolph Ziggler had another close but no cigar moment – when he got laid out by Dean Ambrose.
Naomi, Carmella and Becky’s reaction while the announcer was explaining Eva Marie’s absence.
Nikki got another big pop after she was tagged in for the 1st time.
Serving Power Ranger Realness – Seth Rollins made his entrance
More evidence that Orton & Lesnar was a flop – the crowd showed more interest in Finn’s entrance, than they did during the whole main event match.
One of the few times Brock was not in control of the match was when he took a DDT off the ropes.
Brock was playing no games during his “wrestling is real dammit” moment when he beat Randy down like he stole his Summerslam money.
And why were the fans booing the new Universal Title ? Do you really expect something classy from a company that had a “Mr. McMahon kiss my ass club” ?
