WWE SummerSlam 2015 results: Jon Stewart turns heel, helps Seth Rollins beat John Cena for US title

If you wondered who the Brooklyn, New York crowd would support in the Seth Rollins vs. John Cena title vs. title (WWE world heavyweight vs. US) match at SummerSlam tonight, Jon Stewart made sure that question was answered at the top of the show when he ran down the card.

Rollins was wildly cheered while Cena was roundly booed.

Later, Cena was rocking black shorts while Rollins was wearing a ridiculous white get up that made him look like a Power Ranger. Then, Seth was working babyface offense. It was all very strange, considering the build and character alignments.

Then again, Brooklyn (Brooklyn).

It wasn't long, of course, before it became a WWE main event style match involving John Cena, which is big spot, near fall, big spot, near fall, big spot, near fall. It's the formula that works, and they always manage to vary it just enough to keep it over. This time, it was Cena locking in a Figure Four as a symbolic shot at Triple H, hoping to use it to win the world title for the 16th time to tie Ric Flair's record.

Then, of course, Rollins reversed it. Then, of course, a rope break to continue the match.

Just as it looked like Cena had the edge with an AA and was about to get the winning fall, however, they bumped the referee. This led to a flying knee to the nose. Then, because pro wrestling, Jon Stewart showed up and turned heel, using a chair to put Cena down and setting it up for Rollins to hit a Pedigree on it to get the pin.

Yep. That happened.
