Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar, Logan Paul and Bianca Belair were among the WWE superstars who delivered incredible highlights Saturday night at SummerSlam.

Reigns and Lesnar competed in a last-man-standing match for the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship. As Reigns defeated Lesnar in the match, the two opponents provided a few moments that would be etched into SummerSlam lore.

Lesnar would use the tractor he drove into the arena to lift the ring and knock Reigns to the ground. He would then pass F-5 Reigns’ valet, Paul Heyman, through the announcers’ table.


Theory would then run to the ring to try and cash in his Money in the Bank contract and take advantage of the fact that both Lesnar and Reigns were unavailable – but to no avail. Theory hit Reigns with the briefcase, but was met by an F-5 from Lesnar. Jey and Jimmy Uso gave Lesnar a super kick and knocked him out. Reigns threw the briefcase on Theory’s back.

In one of the earlier matches, Paul tried to get one on The Miz.

Paul impressed WWE fans in his match. In one of the highlights on the reel, Paul went off the top rope and completed a frog splash, pushing The Miz through one of the announcers’ tables.


Pat McAfee, former NFL gambler turned WWE personality, was also stabbed in a match against Happy Corbin. The two were once teammates on the Indianapolis Colts.

McAfee used a low hit and a sunset somersault from the middle rope to defeat Corbin.

Belair and Becky Lynch continue their feud in a match for the RAW Women’s Championship. The two formed another epic battle, which ended with Belair hitting the KOD on Lynch and holding her to keep the title.

But before both competitors left the ring, the WWE universe got a surprise return from Bayley.

The former women’s champion returned to the ring in 2021 after a torn ACL. She came out with Dakota Kai and IYO SKY. Cooler heads would prevail, however, as no skirmish had begun.

Edge also returned to the ring at SummerSlam.

Weeks after being ousted as leader of The Judgment Day, Edge returned to the ring to confront his former faction mates during their match against The Mysterios. Rey and Dominik Mysterio took on Finn Balor and Damien Priest in a tag team match with no disqualification.

Edge returned and impaled Balor and Priest. The interference allowed the Mysterios to win the match. Edge’s return came after vignettes played during RAW hinting at his return.
