WWE SummerSlam 2018 Results: Roman Reigns, Ronda Rousey become new Raw Champions
WWE superstar Roman Reigns defeated WWE Universal Champion at SummerSlam to be crowned as the new Champion. The Big Dog was helped on course to his victory by three spears and the presence of the Monster Braun Strowman lurking outside the ring. Strowman retained his Money in the Bank contract after defeating Kevin Owens early in the evening. During the main event, he came down in the ring with his microphone to announce that he will cash in his contract against the winner of the match.
Using the distraction caused by the Monster, Reigns delivered three Superman Punches and two Spears to Brock Lesnar. But before he could go for the cover, the Beast Incarnate locked him up in a headlock. Lesnar delivered three suplexes to Reigns after which he went to solve the Monster problem. He delivered a F-5 to Strowman and threw away his briefcase far away from the ring. Lesnar picked up a steel chair and launched a vicious beating on Strowman.
But as soon as he entered the ring, Reigns pounced on him with a spear and went down for the covers to earn the victory. Strowman, who was beaten up outside the ring, could not get up to cash in on the contract.
Earlier, Ronda Rousey created history by becoming the first female athlete to win WWE and UFC Women’s titles. The former UFC Bantamweight Champion defeated Alexa Bliss in a matter of minutes to be crowned the new Raw Women’s Champion.
