The main event of tonight’s (Sun., Aug. 20, 2017) WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view (PPV) from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, featured the biggest and best the Monday Night Raw brand has to offer: Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns vs. Braun Strowman vs. Samoa Joe, with the Universal title on the line.
They did a couple teases for one-on-one showdowns, like Lesnar vs. Reigns and Lesnar vs. Strowman, and then got right to the good stuff. That good stuff being just four big beefy dudes throwing everything and everyone around.
Crazy spot after crazy spot, like:

Lesnar was put through multiple tables, then had a table picked up and dumped on him.

He took so much damage from Strowman they did a stretcher job for him. Braun laughed at this before proceeding to grab some steel stairs and beat Reigns and Joe up with them.
There was more violence before Lesnar made his way back to the ring, amidst protests from officials. He took the fight straight to everyone in the ring but somehow everyone ended up eating a Superman punch from Reigns. He couldn’t get the pin, however.
Really, they just traded bursts of violent offense. Strowman appeared to have Joe beat but Brock pulled the ref out.
There was even more violence. Everyone took a beating.
The end came when Reigns ate an F-5 from Lesnar and was pinned while Strowman and Joe were on the outside.
What an unbelievable match.
